BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Sampled at Oakes 05 Xmas Party
Cloudy, no head or lacing. Nose of fresh orange citrus, piney hops, tart yeasty notes. Very nice. The flavor is smooth, similar and with bright sweet hoppy malts and nice creamy funky yeasty notes in the tail. The finish is balanced and quite quaffable.

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Medium orange color. Aroma is floral hops. A big bodied double IPA. Malts are slightly malty and a little sweet. Hops are juicy, very floral and grapefriuty. Bitter without being over the top. Very flavorful, very hoppy, yet it’s still a well balanced beer. Hides the 9.5% alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.

heemer77 (5351) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Recieved in a trade with JohnC. The body is a dark orange that is clear. The aromas, the smells are fantastic. Rich oranges and a little bit of caramel. As it warms, you get a kiss of pine. The taste is rich orange sherbert. There is also some pine and peanuts. I detect a little bit of bitter toffee. It is very smooth for the amazingly rich and complex flavor. A masterpiece of a double IPA.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle, courtesy of Dr. Bill. First 2/3 of the bottle pours pretty clear. The bottom one-third is sludgey. My sample came from that 1/3 so thats most likely affecting my rating. Aroma is soapy. Also basil, mint tea, and forest smells. My sample is phenolic and slightly acrid in the back of the tongue. Not in its best form.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2006
Cloudy amber colour with a large dense off white head, Hoppy, fruity aroma with pine notes and a light malty sweetness. Flavor starts malty and sweet, then the hops kick inn with a solid bitterness and fruity and floral notes. Loong dry and bitter finish with pine notes. Thanx to sk8viking for sharing this great beer.

hotstuff (5111) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2007
Bottle. Thanks to jsquire for sharing. Very small off-white head that quickly dissipated with sparse lacing, murky, no visible carbonation, and a deep golden hue. Malty, caramel, hoppy and citrus nose and ditto for the flavor. Tingly and dry mouthfeel. Medium body. Not my favorite style, but I did enjoy this one.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2006
Bottle. Light hazy deep gold with a nice sticky head and good lace. Aroma is piney, harsh, citrus, herbal and lightly metallic. Flavor mildly metallic, harsh citrus and piney hops, grassy finishes with a sweet sticky malt. Finishes a bit metallic, and has a wierd high carbed mouthfeel. Pretty good from what I remember on tap, but the bottled version seemd not up to par, but also could have been old.

muzzlehatch (4942) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Sampled with egajdzis and eyedrinkale after the Philly gathering, courtesy of the latter. Cloudy, bright light copper...massive fruity nose, mostly citrus with a bit of apricot and pine. Fruity flavor, again mostly orange-grapefruit, clean, well-balanced, but for me lacking in the last degree of excitement. Rather light-bodied.

tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2004
Oh...
Peppermint, menthol, honey and pine/orange C-Hops in the nose. Opaque orange-tan with thin white head that diminishes to ring. Sweet, minty, malty flavour underlies assertive hop flavour. Aggressive bitterness detracts slightly from the flavour. Very strong carbonation but heavy syrup-like mouthfeel. Bottle enjoyed with Lubiere, MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.
