Light haze on this gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is smooth and has decent fine carbonation. Decent malt base, a light creamy sweetness. Hops start with a spicy resin followed by marmalade and grapefruit. Bitterish citric peel before a spicy finish and linger. Nicely done, very drinkable.
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Daniel. Pours clear gold with a thick, frothy off-white head. Crackery pale malts in the nose, ripening citrus fruits, lemon rind, pale grains. Medium sweet flavor with a bit of alcohol kick, orange rind, pale bread, minerals, oily pine. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Warming and resinous on the finish, more pale bread, pine, ripe citrus. Good stuff. Rasmus40 (20623) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle from Euston Tap. Hazy dark golden with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and moderate hoppy - grapefruit and pine. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 250316 fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from Brewery Creek, VancouverTheydon_Bois (19481) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Hazy golden to light amber color; medium sized compact head. The aroma of malt/caramel is dulled by a paper feeling. The body is leaner than expected; malt/caramel flavor with a feeling of paper and vegetables; relatively strong bitterness, with some resins and not much more hop qualities; light sweetness in the end.
Not bad, but it seems unfresh.
Bottle split at the Bespin cloud system, thanks to Danny, 21/01/16.
Lightly hazed orange golden with a decent off white covering.
Nose is bitter orange, straw, citric pith, toasted malt, caramel drool.
Taste comprises orange pith, melon, grapefruit, straw, light bread, mineral trace.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with earthy hop bitterness.
Ok DIPA but far from top draw.

Bottle from Bottledog kings cross. Hazy amber lasting white head. sweet hoppy aroma. Fresh enough. Hops are big leafy and fresh hops. Big hops. Some sweetness. Better the more it opens up. Decent. mcberko (17809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
On tap at Bottleworks, pours hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma of piney hops, grapefruit and citrus. Flavour of intense grapefruit, pine hops, and citrus. Excellent mixture of potent flavours, without any harshness. Wonderful IIPA. Oakes (17642) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2006 Draught at BPP: Cloudy copper-amber colour. Big piney, slighlty zesty hop character. Very bitter, like chewing on hops. Piney, with woody back notes. Not much balance here and the hops aren’t especially bright - I’d like a fruitier, livelier mix. TBone (17521) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Tap at Dig Beer Bar, Osaka.
Amber color, good creamy white head. Aroma has pine, resin and forest. Medium-bodied. Flavor has also piney resiny hoppyness. Creamy and covers alcohol very well. Ferris (15235) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle - Tropical fruit, grapefruit and resin on the nose. Clear orange with a rich white head. Pine and resin with a hint of orange a balanced malty sweetness. Decent but average IIPA.
