Keg at The Pony Bar UES, NYC. Pours hazy gold with a stingy, creamy white head. Aroma holds a good bit of dried citrus, lemon, spices, pine needles. Big sweet flavor, rich and semi-ripe citrus, spices, ginger, pale malts and bread. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with decent piney resins, further spices, flowers, sugar, salt, lemon and orange, grapefruit. Pretty ballsy stuff through and through.
Rating #1810 - 2015.07.03 - Bottle from CBI Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is spicy, earthy hops, mild citrus sweetness, mild pine Taste is extremely hoppy, lots of piney, resinous notes, again subtle citrus sweetness. Fairly balanced in terms of hop profile, and managing the ABV, this is a solid DIPA. RhetoricalAns (973) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
Bottle. Orange-amber pour, couple finger of white head, some spots of lace. Caramel and citrus aroma. Taste comes across more tropical with quite a bit of sweetness. Strong resin bitter finish but also a fair bit of alcohol. dfearnley (2315) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016

Refrigerated brown bomber into a glass. Hazy light orange, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is juicy citrus hops. glennmastrange (2921) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with hints of date, raisin, and dried apricot. Head is average size, frothy, white, with fair lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky dark amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a soft to lively carbonation. A smooth, well balanced and complex DIPA with not a bad thing about it.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Medium orange, slightly hazy, off white head. Citrus and resin with a sweet malt base and a harsh aspirin bitterness. Just ok. AgentAle (1809) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
Aroma is rich sweet malts, honey, clove , caramel and citrus. Taste is sweet roasty malts with a deep hop profile that has slight burn. Your passionfruit, pineapple and cloves come through. Appearance is a slightly hazy orange body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well. Sammy (12760) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
Fresh bottle from premier. Better an hour later. Boozy but not palate erasing. patricks110 (2659) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2015
A decent but big DIPA that is a bit too hot to handle. Pours a bright coppery gold colour with a thick, sticky off white head. Aroma is resinous and sticky with heavy citrus, pine and grapefruit. Light malts with caramel sweetness, toasted grain notes and a bit of spice. Well balanced hop to malts but big and boozy with heavy bitterness, lingering into the aftertaste.

Bottle - Lots of sweet caramel. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet, fruity, caramel and orange hops. Very sweet.
