22oz - Murky orange with yeast/hop nose. Nice flavor, bitter finish & lingering aftertaste. Good but forgettable in this overpopulated style.

chibuck (3511) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
22oz bottle poured into a Matilda glass. Thanks to Spycow for this one...Pours a murky orange/copper, dull and uninspiring. There is a white head, provides some decent lacing...The aroma is floral with citrus notes, oranges mostly. A little soapy but the alcohol is hidden...The taste is a big let down, not sure if its old or just not that good of a dipa. Soapy, floral hops, bitter, not as much of the citrus comes through. Pretty boring, wasnt inspired to drink this. A decent beer but with so many dipa options I wouldnt have this again. Would try it on tap to see if its better fresh.

Dogbrick (11851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2011
This brew pours a cloudy dark orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Aroma of citrus and other sweet fruits as well as hops. Medium body with a moderately bitter citrusy hops character underscored by caramel malt. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Above average overall.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Draft in a shaker. Slightly hazy burnt orange with a short off-white head and good resiny lacing. Medium-light aromatics of resin and grass. Also some Capt Crunch oat malt meal. Bitter flavor. Medium-full body, creamy texture, and a nice bitter finish.

One of those baalanced IPAs ,aroma is hoppy,tangy citusy but with plenty of caramel intermixed, zingy almost spicey hopping with balancing malt backing in taste,very clean texture,very drinkable,seems milder and lighter then a double,alcohol doesnt seem like 9 either, very enjoyable

bottle from BevMo, at home 10Mar11. Pours hazy orange with lots of yeast floaties and a medium white head that laces well the length of the glass. Aroma is pine resin, grapefruit and earthen hops. Flavor is rich orange and toast with a strong pine finish that is balanced nicely. Yum!

This beer pours a very hazy, bright orange body with a full inch of off-white head that settles slowly to a quarter-inch cap. The nose is less of a hop bomb than you might expect from an Imperial IPA, offering an even balance of earthy and piney hops and grainy and cerealy malts, but as the beer warms, orange citrus and caramel emerge as background aromas. To some extent, this balance is echoed on the palate, where the piney and orange-citrusy hops offer medium-plus bitterness, but the medium-sweet, cereal malts are maybe even more prominent than the hops, so those wanting their double IPAs to have a very solid malt base should be well satisfied here. As the beer warms, the emphasis gradually shifts, picking up more and more of the citrus and caramel flavors, so the beer tends to seem sweeter and sweeter. Medium-full bodied with medium-plus carbonation, but despite the growing sweetness, the beer still has a drying effect on the palate. As I drain the glass, a moth-eaten curtain of lace remains on the glass. On the flip side, though, as the beer warms, the beers haziness dissipates to some extent, exposing the flurry of coagulated clumps that are suspended in the beer. Fine particles is one thing, but this is like chunky flakes and its not attractive. Overall, though, this is a solid Imperial IPA, one that is clearly designed for people who like em malty as well as hoppy.

socaltay (204) - Ventura, California, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Golden/ light amber with a white head. The aroma is full of yeast, alcohol and hops. The taste is very similar to the aroma however with the addition of a more bitter note. I didnt enjoy this beer. The yeast played too prominent of a role for my taste in a double IPA.

RedSox2004 (1713) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Cloudy deep golden amber with a generous eggshell white head that left a solid film and very nice lace. Strong grapefruit and pine hops aromas, with hints of tropical fruits like a planters punch. Flavors match, highlighted by the bitterness of the piney hops. Bready malt fills out the complex profile. Medium body, moderate carbonation, ABV not evident, and the finish includes both the grapefruit and bread.
