San Diego Comic Con tickets go on sale today. I should NOT be up late drinking beer, but I am. I hope this is worth it. The aroma is wheat, pepper and pine. The taste is primarily bitterness, maybe some grapefruit once the bitterness subsides. Beerdrinker79 (2218) - Idaho, USA - AUG 24, 2016
12 oz bottle, there is a date stamp reading 7-08-16, hoping that’s the PDT- Pours hazy orange with a fluffy white head that retains nicely. Aroma is malt, a bit of caramel, citrus, zest, starts out lacking and malty, but opens up to some nice fruity, lemony qualities. The taste is solid amount of bitterness, citrusy, solid malt backbone without teetering over to the dark side(dirty caramel malt), very dry finish, which is very much welcomed. Not bad, better than expecting, based on the flavors here, my guess is that date was a born on date thankfully. Good beer. Prufrockstar (2259) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - JUN 15, 2016

Cloudy amber with a small white head and great thick lacing.
Smell of dry leaves, earth, hops, and some caramel.
Taste is thick, subtle hops, malt back, touch of citrus, and caramel. Ends smooth and a tad bitter.

Bronze, and a fairly earthy nose. Earthy taste, quite bitter but without brightness. Still, a decent brew, if really standard for the type. beernovice39 (3269) - Idaho, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle pours a deep amber with off white top. Nose is caramel with some dankness. Taste is caramel, pine and grain. Darkmagus82 (2303) - - NOV 15, 2014
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear red tinted orange amber color with a one finger head of foam. The head fades over a moderate level of time to leave a decent level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a sweeter fruity aroma being mainly of a melon and tangerine smell. Along with these smells comes some hoppy aromas being mostly a mix of grapefruit and an earthy smell, but also containing a faint floral hop aroma as well. With a bit of a musty smell and a bit of bread, a rather sweet and intriguing aroma is overall produced.
Taste – The taste starts with a bready and sweeter fruit flavor with a nice tangerine sweetness upfront. Other sweeter flavors of caramel are upfront as well, being mixed with a good showing of a grapefruit hop. The grapefruit grows stronger in nature as the taste moves on to the end, being accompanied by some herbal and initially lighter pine hop tastes. While the grapefruit is the strongest at the end, the pine does get to a more moderate strength overall. Some slightly musty and a moderately melon taste comes more toward the end of the taste. With a loss of the caramel sweetness and a bit of a dwindling of the tangerine, one is left with a decently hopped, and still smooth and still rather fruity sweet flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the rather more syrupy side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the melon fruity flavors and the hoppy tastes the syrupy body is actually quite nice accentuating the hop and creating a sorta chewy feel for the melon. The thickness coupled with the lower carbonation level of the brew, makes of a nice slow sipping style overall.
Overall – This was a very enjoyable double IPA overall. Not the standard citrus bomb that you often get; this one has nice blends of other fruity flavors and a nice blend of hops. Quite enjoyable overall.
