mcberko (19805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Pine trees on the nose, with peaches and sweet malts to back. Flavour of piney hops, grapefruits and other more subtle tropical fruits, and earthy caramel malts - bitter dry piney hops on the finish. Quite solid though nothing distinguishable about this that makes it a standout.

harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Clear amber lasting cream head. Hop resiny aroma. Some toffee biscuit sweetness in the mouth. Very smooth in the mouth. Quite hoppy but not over the top. No real burn on the finish. The ABV is hidden well. If I made a DIPA this is how I would want it to turn out, balanced and hoppy but not super hoppy, good biscuit and sweetness in the mouth and good bitterness on the finish. Good

Amber. Not much head. Sort of a dull hop aroma - there’s lots in there, but they’re dull. Earthy, but the bitterness is low for the style. The malts, which are slightly caramelly and a little bit earthy, don’t mix well with the hop character... not something I’d get excited about.

Bottle shared by jcwattsrugger. Pours amber. White head. Nose of hops, apple and caramel malt. Taste is hops, caramel malt and dry pinewood finish.

yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2014
Can. An unclear, golden colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is sweetish, with apricot notes and resins. The flavor has a light sweetness, a bitterness level to deal with it, some maltyness and resiny, piney hop flavors. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting fruity and bitter finish. Sure a decent one, not too bitter and not too sweet. Wouldn’t mind repeating this one. 140613

Benzai (16918) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF. Bottle shared. Clear golden to light orange color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, very hoppy, fruit hops, soft to average bitterness, some tropical fruitiness. Medium body and carbonation.

3.6
brokensail (16689) - 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.

3.7
djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a cloudy orange with a medium creamy beige head. The aroma is a strong floral hop and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet cascade hop with a nice light bitter finish. Hides the alcohol well making it easy to drink, a very good IIPA from Squatters.

3.8
bhensonb (15963) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Pours copper with a good beige head. Aromas of floral and fruit. Fullish body with froth carbonation. It’s quite nutty, and very floral. I don’t get the nutty, but that’s how I’m interpreting it. There’s a lot of flavor. Some citrus rind. Finishes more bitter than sweet. I’d say it’s better than DFH 90M. My mouth is starting to shrink. Really good stuff.
