Extremely strong (in a good way) IIPA -- well hopped and well-balanced for a West Coast IPA. Very happy to see some malt undertone here as well as the citrus hop profile. jw0406 (1285) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2011
12 oz. pour at the brick store. pours an orange color with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine. Nicely balanced with a grapefruit finish. An excellent beer nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2011
Co-rate! Tap at the brewery. Bright yellow color. Aroma has citrus first, pine second, resin third. Taste is bitter start to finish. Good DIPA. HopMasterFlex (108) - Carlsbad, California, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Pours a hazy orange with a two finger head, decent retention and lacing. Smells of bread, citrus, and pine. Taste has a clean balance of malt and pine & citrus hops with a slightly dry and bitter hop finish. Nice little DIPA. mixmasterob (1057) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 16, 2011
On draught @ Taco Mac Crabapple. Clear golden pour with a thick fluffy white head. Lace galore. Aroma was fresh citrus fruits, light caramel malt, piney. Flavors were big and citrusy, bitter orange peel throughout, this went well with the bruising bitter finish. Mouthfeel was silky smooth and full, dry as a bone. Tasty stuff, West coast in all regards. Fruity a big time mega bitter. Left a big hop presence long after the glass was gone.

Wonderful DIPA. The aroma is all citrus and very prominent hops. The appearance is lighter than I expected, it is a golden color with decent carbonation and white head. The taste is very full of hops and follows the aroma with a citrus taste. It is the first beer that actual seems to have some citrus, mainly grapefruit in it. I enjoyed this beer.

Tap @ Falling Rock. Pours dark golden with a white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, orangepeel. Taste is bitter orangepeel, pine, resin, melon, mongo, lots of fruity hops, very nice. Medium body and corbonation, long bitter finish. Very nice hoppy and bitter IIPA, but still very drinkable. 040311 50belair (3660) - Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2011
bottle. Clear dehydrated pee in color. Citrus and floral aromas. Big eucalyptus, resiny, floral hoppy flavors. I don’t like it quite as much as the Hop 15, but it’s still a good DIPA.... OldMrCrow (2443) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle as a contest extra (!!) from Stefanje.

Aggressive nose of pine and pineapple. Juicy, but you know you’re in for a hop blast as soon as you taste it. Indeed, from the first sip this is a hard-ass IIPA. Massive pine bitterness, like Port-brews-a-ruinition-style ale, like having grapefruit rind ground against one’s tongue. Lovely foamy head, huge lacing. Easy to drink despite all of the hop intensity. Pretty nice beer even if it lacks the dank herbal hop notes that send me over the top.
22 oz. bomber. Orange amber pour with a creamy eggshell colored head. Big citrus aroma with grapefruit and tangerine peel. Some orange, some caramel, strong pine and resin. Flavor is lots of orange and pine, some lemon. strong bitterness, very nice. Light caramel and biscuit notes but this is all about the hops. Medium bodied, allows the bitternes to really shine through in the finish. Really great DIPA.
