12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy deep amber color with two fingers of fluffy white head. Aroma of piny hops with citrus overtones, and some biscuit malt. The taste is pretty sweet up front, caramel maltiness, followed by lots of pine and citrus bitterness in the aftertaste. wlajwl (6812) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Aroma is citrus, mild/medium sugar sweetness and a hint of caramel/toffee. The flavor is citrus, light grapefruit, mild hop resin, an undercurrent of sweetness and a very bitter finish. Not the best in the style but better than I was expecting. nickmoyer (25) - Laureldale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2013
A surprisingly very smooth IPA. Not too much of a bite with the after taste. Biggest complaint is that I currently don't have more in my fridge.

A very nice grapelike bitterness with floral notes. Reddish brown color with a white head. Rasmus40 (20649) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle courtesy of ken1. Hazy dark orange with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and moderate hoppy - fruity. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 180513

Bottle from EC. Clear, coppy body with a huge, off-white head. Lasting with tons of lace. Really pretty. Dusty malt aroma with some cracker. Muddy citrus and some peach. Flavor has muddy hops. Caramel and raisin malt. Very restrained. Fullish body with appropriate carbonation. Balanced bitterness and a clean finish. Not what I expected from an IIPA, but the balance and restraint really work for me here. italianjohn (3139) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2013
Deep amber pour, hazy medium frothy off white head and decent sticky lacing ... aroma is malty as heck with a light citrusy hop .... taste is bitter rindy with some citrusy hops and a caramel malt backbone ... mouthfeel has a strong bitter hop and lightly oily in the mouthfeel ... slightly boozy ... strong hop bitter bite but just lacks the big citrusy hop flavor conway (2210) - - MAR 20, 2013
Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Need to re-rate. Hop profile was dead. Must have been a bad bottle.

Reddish brown in color. Medium hop smell slightly grassy or earthy. Light hoppy taste with sweet caramel finish. Surprisingly smooth and drinkable for a double IPA. RobertDale (6477) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a large off-white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is grapefruit, pine, grass, and malt. Very drinkable.
