Poured from bomber...nose was all malt to me not getting much hops at all...mouth is the same with malt overload...i just like more hops....good beer just not for a hop head like me.... BadAprilia1000 (433) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Pours a hazy golden orange with a very strong off white head. Aroma is peach juice, tropical, hoppy, grapefruit, strong mango, lemon and orange dominant and a weak lime zest for citrus, heavy and oily pine, all with a great sweet malt backbone. Taste is peach, orange, grapefruit, lemon, biscuit, malt, mango, tropical fruit, average hop bitter. Extremely solid double IPA, much more drinkable than most, the fruit sweetness actually is stronger than the hop bitter, buy a couple of bombers if you like IPAs.

On draft at Tap 25. I’m pretty sure I’ve had this beer on several occasions throughout the years, but I’m finally getting a chance to rate it. It pours a rich gold color with a lasting white head. The aroma is sweet peachy, florals, citrus and tropical fruit. Not too potent. The flavor is extremely bitter with pine and sweaty tropical fruit. It has an oily body. Pretty good, if a bit heavy on the bitterness. jesperhammer (4735) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2014
24-OCT-2014, bottle @Morten.
Huge 9/10, creamy, fluffy, yellow head.
Aroma is hops. Perhaps not all that fresh. Pine, fruit, touch of cheese.
Taste is so hoppy. Very, very bitter, grape fruit, pine, touch of cardboard.
Full body, sweet. Very heavy malty backbone. A rough one. That I like. slowrunner77 (12043) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 21, 2014
"called a double ipa, but drinks like a hoppy barleywine...a little more hop and a little less pine, and you’d think it was a bigfoot. good beer, not best of style, but worth trying. 2010-as the years pass, this one keeps getting passed, but it’s still good. too much biscuit malt detracts from it, though." roxtersoxter (358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Pours hazy gold with very large frothy head out of bottle. Pleasant aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, and a mixture of hops. Flavor of citrus, fruit, caramel, and of course hops. Very good beer!

Nice hoppy bouquet, citrus, mango, pine, decent caramalt backbone, dry hoppy finish. Solid IIPA, but found the muscat version a tad smoother.
