UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 From memory. Had this June 2011. Probably was the first double IPA outside of a beer festival and 90 min. Tasty but nothing amazing. I’ll rerate if they make it again and I can get some. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2014

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, white head, and golden yellowish in color. The smell is super hoppy, so good. right up in your face, citrus. The taste is the same, pine, fruits, citrus, bitterness, and a big hoppiness. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle thanks to adnielsen. Pours a orange golden color with two finger of thick sticky foam. Nose is pine, honey malt and citrus. Palate follows with a heavier grapefruit punch, big grassy bitterness and a heavy round malt sweetness that balances the bitterness nicely. jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a bright cloudy yellow with a half finger head and good lacing down the glass.
Smells of citrus with lots of yeasty tones.
Starts off with some citrus and grapefruit. Just a touch of bread then finishes pretty bitter and dry with a grapefruit pith flavor.
Medium carbonation and mouthfeel.
Pretty good. I enjoy the grapefruit flavors although I’ve had a few that have done it better. Still recommended though if you can get it.

Bottle from the brewery.Pours a clear light pale orange.Rich short head,lots of lace.
Pungent fresh aroma, bright sharp citrus fruits,spicey-peppery,underlying mild sweetness.
Taste is hoppy,fresh,clean malt,drying alcohol finish-a bit hot almost. Lots of strong sharp hops,piney and stingingly peppery.Citrus in the background.Vapory alcohol in finish. I almost wonder if this is too fresh and needs to chill out with some fridge time.Kinda hot and not the MO malt Im familiar with,maybe with time it will show a little more because at this point its nothing other than hops and alcohol not in a bad way though.

Dry, metallic, hoppy, piney, like a regular Colorado IPA, nice packaging...reviewed by Louisville Dads Beer Club jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle at Paul’s July 2013 tasting. Pours a light hazy body. Aroma is super fresh pine and citrus. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of citric hops, citrus fruits, lots of pine, resin and some floral character. Very light malt base smooths out the finish making this a refreshing, drinkable double IPA. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2013
