Pours beautifully clear golden color with decent head. Almost burnt nose with a very clean citrus hop taste. Very little alcohol involved so the 8.2 is a surprise. Not a top pick for me, but there were high points I can appreciate. jckp64 (356) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Pours yellow with an orangish tint. Has a medium white head. Aroma is pine and hops. Flavor is very balanced. very hoppy. Just what you would expect from a Double IPA. Not a very strong alcohol taste. Overall a very good DIPA. bbbeer (878) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Yellow with a touch of orange, cloudy with medium head. Aroma citrus and piney hops. Medium body, don’t notice the alcohol, flavors are mostly citrus hops, some malt balance, quite drinkable. Bitter but not overwhelmingly so. ? a 1.5XIPA. Solid if not particularly distinctive. rand (1830) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle 355 ml from www.erzbierschof.ch. Golden beer with thin white head. Aromas of malt and hops US. The taste start sweet then hesitates and becomes bitter. Flow of bitterness at the end of mouthful. Crispy, with a fruity and sweetened blend bathed by citrus and pine. bluevegie (3938) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2011
Slight haze on a yellowy golden body with a decent head. Pleasant grapefruit notes in the aroma and taste, not a lot of bitterness. Didn’t pick up on the alcohol at all and could have drunk these all night.

12 oz. from Chuck’s. Now this is an IPA. Pours the color of Red Bull. Lots of citrus and floral aromas. Big grapefruit kick up front that quickly subsides into some balanced malty goodness. Solid with a capital OLID. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle Shenandoah Throwdown 2010. Pours a clear clean yellow with a big white head. Aroma is big citrus orange centennial, grapefruit, some slight tropical notes as well- mango and light pineapple cracker toast and light sweet malty hints. Flavor is a touch sharp unripe green mango, simcoe fruity citrusy notes, orange, tangerine, pine, sappy and minty with a light sweet malt finish mixed with an ok bitterness. Pretty easy drinking for 8.2 but not bold enough or sticky with the hops. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2011
Draught at Red Lion, Göteborg.
Deep golden colour with a big creamy, hop-induced head. Fresh and flowery hop aroma plus some pine, clean pale malty, elegant malt and hop balance, quite simply a straight forward 2IPA nose. Bit woody, cedary flavour up front, elegant in the mouth and not overwhelming, clean with balanced bitterness. Hop flavour is medium, that is not too much which is good. No esters found. Light grassy background. Sweet flowery hop flavour towards the end. Very good and elegant beer! ExpendableHero (932) - Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Hazy golden color with a frothy, white head. Aromas of fresh lawn clippings and citrus. The taste follows the nose, heavy on floral/pine flavors, ending on a tangy bit of grapefruit. A bit lackluster for the style, Southern Tier can do much better. Camons (13315) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle @ Home. Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, flowers, light caramel malts notes to. Taste is grapefruit, bitter orangepeel, melon, bready and caramel malt. Medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Nice IPA with good balance, high drinkability. 090111
