Bottle at Oliver Twist. Deep red copper, medium head. Fruity aroma, hints of plums. Good hoppy and fruity flavours, solid in all respects. Well-made. neepsntatties (1992) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Had this thanks to "hannont". Colour... golden-orange with a thin head. Nose... imagine Lyle’s Golden Sirop that has been fresh hopped! Palate... sweet, but not cloying, plenty of boiled sweets (esp. citrus ones), dried apricots, dried pineapple, fruit leather, lemon sirop and a long finish.

Big, white, fluffy head that stays long.
Red-amber color and very clear.
Nice citrus hop aroma that don’t over power the beer.
Sweet and balanced bitterness with a smooth caramell.
After some time when the beer gets warmer the sweetness is more pronounced and not as perfect as in the beginning. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Tasted from 12oz bottle from Lush Roscoe. Pours a deep orange with a hint of amber with an average white head that recedes to lace. Nose is grapefruit hops with a solid caramel malt background and just a hint of freshly baked bread. The taste is caramel sweetness up front with malt and grapefruit acidity carrying it to the mid-palate. The back is bitter, but not as bitter as many beers I have had with a sweet and bitter finish. The body is fairly full with average carbonation and a long bitter and sweet finish. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2010
On tap at New Holland on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear orange with a thin beige head. Citrus and malt, faint alcohol. Nice juicy malt and hops, earthy. Long bitter grapefruit and quinine on the finish. Well balanced.

Thanks for sharing, bro! This brew was very chewy, earthy, resinous, and malty. Lacked a light of the brightness and fruitiness that I like from IPA’s and their variants.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear, orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a good amount of soft lace-work. Aroma is strong, bitter grapefruit pines and earth with a chewy caramel malt backing. Lots of deeper hops with a resin that really pops as this warms. Flavor is similar. Strong and bitter, deep pines and earth with a good amount of resin. Pretty big malt backing with somewhat chewy caramels and a moderate sweetness. Finishes with lots of citrus and bitter grapefruits as well as a floral hint before drying with a higher bitterness level. Lengthy aftertaste following a full body and creamy carbonation. Alcohol is very well hidden and this drinks nicely. Overall, a solid DIPA. Lots of strong grapefruit pines with a nice malt backing. Enjoyable and assertive, which I like.

Ugh, I hate DIPAs like this. It just has a more earthy and chewy flavor to it. I prefer a bright and clean tasting DIPA and this one is like muddy hops with intense caramel malt that’s more than a backbone. I’ll pass on this one. GrizzlyBrew (15) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2010
I’m not sure if I got an older bottle or what, but there was very little hop aroma or flavor. All I got was a thick, almost burned caramel malt flavor. Mouthfeel was a little dense for me, even for a double. Dandeman321 (11) - Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Great aroma and appearance, taste is near perfect but has a bit of a weird aftertaste.
