Sampled at the January 10 Metro Detroit tasting. Thanks to whoever brought this! Poured a clear light orange with a yellow tint and minimal head. Aroma was full of hops, both pine and citrus notes present. Flavor began with citrus hops, then transitioned in to a nice pine finish.

Bottle Clear, deep yellow ale with a small, fat-bubbled, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is a fruity swirl of grapefruit, apricot, peach, guava and a sprig of pine. Full-bodied and creamy with spent carbonation. The flavor offers nice malts honey and toffee. The hops seem more aromatic than bitter. Finishes bittersweet and nearly balanced a little more sweet than bitter. Bottle courtesy of mashmaster!

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2009
hoppy aroma with licorice. Pours clear golden with thin white head. Eye-watering hops. Overall, this isnt one of the better doubles that ive had. Alcohol is too prominent and the body is thin. Too unbalanced to get a high rating.

tgncc (3112) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Nice, interesting aroma of caramel, peach, light fruit, pine, citrus, leaves, slight booze. The appearance is a hazy orange, white head. The flavor is caramel, fruit, pine needles, resin. Very nice. The mouthfeel is medium, little on the thick side, slick. The finish is pure hops, an astringent, lingering hop burn, mostly resin and some pine. This is a nice beer. Great IIPA, this one really takes th style to the limit.

LinusStick (3293) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2009
A delicious IIPA courtesy of my Secret Santa. Aroma was spectacular. Strong citrus and piney hops that fill the nostrils. Pour was a cloudy orange with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was nice and bitter. Strong bitter hops with a light caramel malt backbone. Very little carbonation which was disappointing but Ive come to notice that west coast IPAs and IIPAs all have that in common. Nice bitter wet aftertaste that hangs on the tonsils. Very god
