wedgie9 (2697) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2014
From old notes, tasted with Curtis and some friends in Nashville, probably some time near the summer of 2012, from a 12oz bottle. Pours clear light orange with an average white head that leaves average lacing. The nose is pretty simple resin hops up front with a decent caramel malt backbone. The flavor is lightly sweet caramel malt up front, moving to the green resin hops on the back of the palate. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter resin hops finish.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Copper hue with creamy off white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is melon, papaya, tangerine, peach, caramel, straw, figs, pine. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a full body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a nice hop bitterness in the following and extending through the finish. Overall this is a really nice I2PA.

AirForceHops (6952) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Orange in color with amber hue, light head retention. Aroma is floral with light resin and some sweet malt. Tones of citrus.

The flavor is moderate sweet caramel and toffee malts, mild citrus and notes of tangerine. More on the sweet side of a DIPA. Mildly syrupy texture and lightly bitter. Medium bready malt body with mild carbonation. Overall it is more sweet than you may want in a DIPA. Note** This bottle was only a moth old, pick it up because Im not sure if I will ever see it on draft.

Darkmagus82 (2302) - - AUG 5, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 9-9-12- Poured from bottle into snifter Appearance Pours a beautiful deep ruby red/deep amber color. Upon pouring there is only a tiny tannish head that forms. The head fades very fast to leave only a lingering film on the top of the brew. Swirling the beer in the snifter shows a very sticky and thick body as it clings to the side of the glass before reseeding back to the pool of beer. Smell The aroma is very bready with a strong presence of a caramel sweetness and some roasted aromas. The hop aromas are very light with only a small amount of citrus detected in the nose. Other then the citrus hop is a warming alcohol and dark fruit smell, which give this brew more of a doppelbock aroma then that of an IPA. Taste A doughy taste is the first to be detected by the tongue. This is mixed with some sweeter flavors of a caramel. As the taste moves on hop tastes start to work their way in as some of the caramel flavor fades. The hop which are in the taste are largely citrus in nature and arrive with some lighter dark cherry and raisin sweetness. Soon the citrus hop drown out the dark fruits as they become more potent toward the end. At the end a doughy and grapefruit hop are left in the taste, but not without a strong presence of alcohol which when combined with the hop leaves a somewhat burning tingle on the tongue. Mouthfeel Quite full bodied with a very chewy feel. The carbonation on this one is rather low. Both the thickness and carbonation are quite fitting for the brew as they allow all the bready, grapefruit and boozy flavors to linger on the tongue and warm you through and through. Overall It is a thick and hearty IPA. Definitely a sipping IPA.
