A rather enjoyable treat brought home for me by the Mrs. after a business trip. Pours a pissy gold with a fizzy thin white head that fades quickly and laces nicely. The nose and taste are of floral and citric hops with a touch of pale grains and almost no malt flavor at all. This beer is quite good but will bruise your palate with oily hop resin. Just how I like my IIPA’s! Good job wifey.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Ram Liquor while in Fort Collins. Heavy, dank hop aromas coming off a clear medium/dark yellow body with a white head. More of the same in the taste with oily, vegetal bitterness and a little citrus/tropical fruit peeking through. Good malt backdrop to showcase the abundant hop flavor. Leaves behind a leafy, vegetal flavor with long lasting bitter coating the tongue. Not overly done, but definitely a hop-lovers treat. ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 17, 2011

Enyhén opálos, sárgaréz színe van. Habja fehér, krémes, közepes méretű és igen tartós. Olyan illata van, mintha egy amerikai komlótobozt szétmorzsolnánk az ujjaink között, kesernyés, gyümölcsös, gyantás. Íze is igen trópusi gyümölcsös, keserédes, fenyőrügyes, gyantás és fűszeres. Nem túl testes és szénsavas és a magas alkoholtartalom sem érződik benne túlságosan. Utóíze igen gyümölcsös és keserédes és igen száraz. Remek söröcske, ami igen kemény, de ugyanakkor mégis veszélyesen könnyen iható.

Solid DIPA. Big hop florals and resin on nose and a solid malt backbone carries the hops really well and lends a bit of sweetness before a clean finish. Really good, but not exceptional. natejgood (517) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Pours a clear light golden. The head is small and white to start, but a torrent of bubbles from the bottom of the glass build it from beneath to for a good sized frothy white head. Aroma is fairly light for a double IPA. Grass and lemon with a very light aroma of hops in the background. Flavor is sweet and malty with a decent bitter hop finish that helps cut the sweetness a bit. This beer tastes a bit syrupy but it doest feel that way in the mouth. A good beer for sure, but I like my IPAs a bit cleaner tasting

12 fl. oz. bottle, bought on GBBF.thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Pale golden one with a nice froathy white head. At the first second the aroma is not a strong one but after a while you can feel the power of the hops and the strong honeyish character of the huge ammount of malts. Strong hopy character, tropical fruits, mango with a honeyish malt background. Nice strong bittersweet character, balanced character.
Bottle via liquor shop in South Dakota. Pours a very nice orange hazy hue with a white head. Aroma is minimal to say the least with only malt and some toffee coming through. Taste is very hot with malt coming through but more like it was meant to be there than it being old. Bottle is only a month old so I can’t think the hops dropped off that much. Overall this is a DIPA I felt they are just trying to up the ABV on and forgot to even bother with a double dose of hops. omhper (25262) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2011
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy pale golden, coarse head. Citris tangerine and lemon aroma. Sweet and full bodied with fairly soft mouthfeel. A bit syrupy, but tagerine-like hops dries it out. Mid bitter finish. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours light amber-orange with foamy white head. Nose is tropical fruits and lots of resin. Some floral notes. Big beer for the hot day on which it was consumed. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Draft at Odell. I’ve gotten really particular with my choices in IIPA territory and this isn’t really in my wheelhouse. Pours a hazy deep gold with some light copper notes. Persistent white head. Nose is really big and floral, orange blossom and douglas fir come to mind. Some soft maltiness sneaks in as well. The aromatics tend towards the sweet, which isn’t my bag. On taste, there is a good level of bitterness, but it’s a bit too soft and works towards the floral rather than the aggressive. Not bad, just not my thing. Some jasmine notes come through as well. Good, not great.
