JDBaker11058 (2061) - Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2015
appearance: clear light amber, a beautifully frothy/creamy white head that leaves a ton of lacing. aroma: blood orange and grapefruit, graham cracker and caramel, some vanilla, then some lemongrass and pine. taste: caramel and vanilla (like a werthers original), a bitter orange creamsicle, lemon juice, light grass. finish: slick, slightly oily, but also somehow watery, with a bit of lingering hops that are almost more aromatic than flavorful, but still feel fake and perfumy. notes: This is not a good double IPA. Palate was slick but somehow watery. Alcohol is not well-hidden. Hops provide some aromatics and some astringent heat, but not much in the way of flavor. Malt bill is unstable as well, seeming both too strong but also muddled. Just couldnt like it. 12 oz can as a souvenier from the brewpub is Salt Lake City.

MaltOne (353) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Pours pale copper, lacy head. Light fruit hop aroma. Taste has pleasant malt base, stone fruit hops, (no grapefruit or pine resin), a hint of pepper spice. palate is light. Starts with stone fruit, merged into the malts finishes quite dry. Overall, lighter than most double IPA, but very drinkable.

Single bottle from W&M Mansfield. A medium golden amber color with a frothy off-white head. Strong sweet aromas and flavors. Herbal-pine notes. Heavy body. Slightly muddled finish, but otherwise a decent DIPA.

Big grapefruit and sweet malt on the nose. A little sweet and think but enough bitterness as well. Good if not quite a standout.

Andrew196 (1761) - Katy, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle. Love the cut of and the picture on the label. Hazy marmalade in color with an nice, off white head. Lots of grapefruit and tangerine citrus on the nose. Big on flavor but not obnoxious or overbearing like this style often finds itself being....the pine makes a big introduction with more citrus, a much sweeter version than on the nose. Well done.

AgentAle (1658) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 6, 2015
Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, honey, light earthiness and lightly soured grapes. Taste is rich caramel malts with light funk. Finishes surprisingly smooth with very little tanin on tip. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle @ Whiskey St. Hazed orange pour with a white head. Lots of sweet peach and some caramel malts. Big time grapefruit, some orange rind, and lemon peel. Pretty decent bready malts and some tropical fruits. Not bad, decently hoppy but certainly sweeter than I typically like.
