Bottle. Pours a cloudy coppery color with a small eggy head. Nose is resiny with light orange and citrusy notes. Palate is pretty thick with a light bite and a sticky swollen tongue. Flavors of resiny hops, light pine and citrus, some real doughy notes to boot. jgb9348 (6329) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2012
Super hazy copper coloured body with a nice orange glow and a thin one centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of honey, grapefruit, earthy malt, alcohol and a bit of basementy must. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep strong earthy and herbal hop note with a bright grapefruity and lemony flavour with a lot of alcohol and a long-lasting flavour. Aftertaste shows some herbal notes, but mostly a bright and earthy hop flavour with a good malt balance and some alcohol tucked in. Overall, a nice Imperial IPA on the lighter side, but still showing a ton of hops, a lot of alcohol and a more herbal and citrus fruit flavour - plus the small format bottle helps. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington, DC on 28-October-2011 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on 17-April-2012. jcwattsrugger (12471) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2012
12oz bottle-pours gold/amber with a light tan head. Aroma is herbal-tea/orange, 2nd medium malt. Taste is biting herbal-tea/orange hops, 2nd medium malt-some caramel. Harsh [Cascade]/bitter, drying finish. iugrad93 (265) - Indiana, USA - APR 12, 2012
Cloudy, orangish pour with white head, little lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, oranges, and lemons. Taste is sweet, mild bitterness, but mostly on the back end. Overall, I like this one quite a bit. Well balanced, nice flavor, smooth, and I really like the citrus aromas on every drink.

Pours from the bottle an amber-orange hue, with an initial 2-finger froth that diminishes to a thin soapy cap that leaves thick window-wash lacing down the glass. The nose is of floral and citrus notes, nicely integrated. Flavors of grapefruit lay on top of a caramel malt, with bran cereal hitting mid-palate and a dry Simcoe hop finish... quite citrusy. The full body accompanies an oily mouthfeel, making for a substantively active palate, complete with noted (yet subtle) carbonation. This is a very nice IIPA, and its complexities are well-integrated and enjoyable. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle. Strong floral hop aroma. rich orange color, white head that stands up and clings. Strong bitterness with flavorful finish. Very good strong IPA. hoosiers1994 (684) - Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle pours amber with off white head. Aromas of malt, and floral and citrus hops. Taste is bitter with resin notes, balanced by sweet malts. Long bitter dry finish completes this one. Overall a decent DIPA. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 2, 2012
750 bottle poured into a tall flute, mailed to me by my friend Suzy, just because she wanted to include something for me in a Christmas box. Excellent choice Suz!!! Clear orange-amber with dense head and stinky, stinky nose. I can smell the hoppy goodness as the glass sits on the table two feet from me. Up close it’s a strong hop and alcohol nose, with creamy hints of caramel. Strong! taste is big and strong up front. Lots of pine tree hops. Flavor fades quickly to more of a lager flavor. Very clean in the mouth, with sharp bitter leftovers. Not overpowering at 8.5%. Gooey back. Nice. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2012
From my old Beerlicious iPhone app: Draft. Citrus aroma is bang! Red/Orange in color that is clear. Frothy white head. Light bitterness to start and heavy bitterness on the finish. Medium body that is stick and thick. Average Carbonation and a bitter finish.
