Clear light amber color with an egg shell head that left a nice lace on the glass. Carbonation appeared when agitated. A candy hop with a touch of flower arose from the glass. jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a nice sustained white head that leaves nice lacing... crisp citrusy aroma, faint pale malts... Good flavor, nice citrus hops with a touch of pine, very dry finish, not overly complex, very clean, not muddled at all... medium full bodied, not over the top mouthfeel... good.... temporrari (398) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Big tropical hops aroma. Hopslam-ish. Nice. Nothing to hate about the appearance. Juicy hop flavor, grapefruit and such. Dry bitter finish. Solid as all get out. ChainGangGuy (4918) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2010
12 ounce bottle - 1.79 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed body hued halfway between yellow and gold and topped with a medium-sized, near white head.
Smell: Hops primarily on display with tropical fruits, extracted resins, and featuring lemon and tangerine, heavy on the pith, giving a dusting of finely-ground aspirin. Some understated biscuity malts underneath.
Taste: Pale malts, a bit biscuity and with a touch of waterlogged soda crackers. Minute sweetness. Floral, resinous hops, a dash of pineapple juice and with a snap of citric medicinal tones. Moderate bitterness. Unassuming taste of store-bought pie shells. Bitter, near dry, hoppy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: It’s decent, though not as personally rousing as some of their other hop-centric offerings. Palidor19 (3193) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2010
while there is nothing fundamentally wrong with this beer it doesnt really take like a double IPA, its more like a single. the flavor is crisp and clean with a minty, rosemary taste of herbal. good stuff

The aroma is very malty and hoppy with both pine and citrus. The appearance is pale gold with a foamy head that fades fast. The taste is like the aroma with clean finish. The palate is smooth but not thick. Overall this is a good beer. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Bottle. Clear golden color/ white head. Big grapefruit, pineapple, grassy hop aromas .medium bodied. Massive pine sap, grapefruit hoppage on a just as massive crystal, carmal malty base. Big bittersweet DIPA- very good. Slimbrundage (80) - USA - OCT 10, 2010
Transparent golden color, this is what a beer should look like. Complex hop aroma, peach, grape and lemongrass. The mouthfeel is ultra clean, crisp and full of flavor. Plenty of hops as well as lightly toasted malt. The finish is smooth with just enough bitterness. In a world where every IPA is trying to out bitter the other one, or load there IPA’s with enough malt to send you into a diabetic coma 2X is a Godsend. thewolf (12735) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Pours clear darkish golden with a lovely, creamy, staying, white head. Aroma is fat and resiny, some pine, pricot, light grapefruit. Low carbonation, light oily but very dry palate. Flavour is lovely, lots of hops. Piney, bitter, some woody tones, light floral, apricot, peach. Perhaps the vinousness of the beer is a bit too much, especially as the hops burn a little as well.
aroma is fresh cut grass, resin present but larger foliage which overwhelms. hints of lime/grapefruit then a move to lemon. appearance is translucent gold, good lacing, filmy head. flavor is grapefruit, lemon...quite fruity. grassiness from nose takes backseat. pleasant clean maltiness comes to play but without creating real balance nor having its own character crushed by hops.
