rosenbergh (11132) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2011
Draught at the Publick House, Brookline, MA.
Hazy yellow colour with small white head. Strong fruity American hops and lots of bitterness in aroma. Very strong bitter hops, heavy dark bitterness and some mild alcohol in flavour. Mild alcohol burning. Thick. Strong lasting bitterness.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2011
Shared this bottle at the BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. A chunky golden colour with a thick white head. Resinous hop aroma of pine and passionfruit with some barley undertones. Oily mouth-feel with flavours of passionfruit, pineapple, mango and pine. Light chewy malt and very bitter, which I like! Superb!

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2011
22oz bomber. Pours a cloudy orange gold with a thick white head. Aroma is intensely hoppy - lots of green resiny sticky hops along with hints of fruit and honey. The flavor is quite nice - an excellent double IPA due to its balance and dryness (many tend to be cloying and too big). Some malt sweetness up front with hints of muffins and then big doses of resiny and grapefruity hops. Firm bitterness and dry finish - great hoppy aftertaste with excellent balance for such a bitter beer and far from too sweet for such a big beer. Overall, quite drinkable for such a big beer. Very good.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Golden appearance with a white head. The aroma is strong pine. Flavors are strong citrus, primarily grapefuit. Very smooth for this strong of an IPA. Short-lived and dry aftertaste.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Pours cloudy orange with off white head. Intense hop aroma citrus, resiny pine, malts, excellent. Smells very fresh for a 4 month old bottle. Intensity doesnt let up in the taste, as the hops are in your face from the get go, nice lingering bitter finish on the back end. Big and bold, just like a true DIPA should taste. Cheers.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Pours a lacing beige head with a murky, golden body that has some floaties. Aromas of grass and mild citrus. Flavors of lemongrass, orange rind, some malt sweetness. Finish is bitter and dry.

A - Pours a hazy rich golden-orange color with a big finger of frothy off-white head atop. The head fades down slowly leaving behind lots of lace. S - Aroma is bursting with citrus and tropical hops with lots of grapefruit and pineapple. There is also a bit of piney hops in the background as well. T - Starts off big on the citrus/tropical hops flavor with lots of pineapple and grapefruit again. There is just a touch of caramel sweetness in the background. Through the middle, the bitterness gets even stronger and some piney/grassy hops come through as well. The finish is a mix of bitterness and a bit of sweetness with some solid lingering hop flavor. M - Meidum-full bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels smooth and a bit resiny. Overall, fairly dry and quite refreshing. D - Very drinkable. The beer is pretty hop forward, but the bit of sweetness really mixes in well. The hop profile is really excellent from start to end.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2011
Bouteille de 22 oz. Armes trs intenses de houblon amricain (pamplemousse et agrumes). Robe orange et trouble, trs belle mousse qui tient bien et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, le houblon est vraiment dominant, apportant des notes rsineuses, pices et fruites (pamplemousse amer). Le malt, rappelant le pain blanc, joue un rle de soutient. Finale relativement sche prsentant une trs forte amertume rsineuse. Peut-tre pas aussi raffine que les meilleures DIPA, mais tout de mme trs efficace pour obtenir une bonne dose de houblon.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2012 Great stuff. Amber color, monster white head. Theres no malt in this one! A total palate overload for hop-heads. More pine hops than citrus, so it doesnt overtake my favorite Threee Floyds Arctic Panzer Wolf, but its right up there with one of my faves when I want a hops overload experience. From a bottle, I can only imagine how great this is on draft.

Deep orange-amber color, small steady white head. Strong nose has citrus, pine needles and flowery notes. Medium to full-bodied. Pine needles, resin, tropical fruits. Spicey finish. Warming fruity alcohol. World class DIPA.
