chinchill (4642) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2014
)n tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta). Pours deep and dark amber. Modest but durable head. Aroma: Interesting aroma is hoppy, as expected, but has an unusual character that is floral and herbal but otherwise rather hard to describe. Flavor is more earthy, with mild to moderate bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. O: for hop heads.

Cybercat (5400) - Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy chestnut with a light tan head. Aroma is quite hoppy with a strong grapefruit note. Flavor is epically hoppy and has a nice sour citrus underpinning. Texture is firm and fizzy, and leaves a seriously hoppy and citrus finish. Double platinum indeed!

I'm used to the northwest version of a double IPA (read very hop forward) so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this beer had a really malty profile.

Bottle from the beer run mix six over christmas. Pours a nice ruby red color with a white head and big lacing. Good caramel sweetness working throughout. Enough piney sticky hops still left here to be entertaining. Aroma is lots of pine and a slight citrus tinge. Solid double IPA.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours an amber color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and mild spice. Taste is similar. Old citrus, caramel malt, and faint spice.

jake65 (3465) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of nimbleprop thanks! Pours a clear, but deep golden color with a finger of creamy sandy head. Fresh aroma reminds me of a wet hop ale; citrus, tropical, and resin. Good, clean tasting DIPA. Citrus, pine resin, and caramel. Soothing malt bill really jives with the Simcoe. Nothing exotic, but solid and well made.

Pours a golden color with white head. Lots of citrus on nose. A bit of sweetness on palate with lots of citrus and some resin.

njnut (486) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Poured into pint glass. Nice amber color, white head that was not lasting almost no lace. This beer was old. Shame on me for not seeing in store but shame on Wine Academy Lakewood for selling it. I bought in singles section so only one bad beer. I will re-buy and re-rate. From the skunk I pick up a faint grapefruit smell. Taste of rotting grapefruit. Date on bottle was almost a year ago. I wish they put the date on the label and clearly so it can be seen by all including a guy like me with bad eyes.

SPDickerman (1233) - Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pours clear orange with a large white head. Smells strongly of citrus. Taste is a giant citrus punch. Full-bodied with a slick texture and active mouth-carbonation, Starr Hill Double Platinum finishes with a dry bitterness.

dmac (5912) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2013
12oz single from Wine Academy. Poured a good looking syrupy deep orange body with a large frothy light white head. Aroma was syrup, hops, citrus, caramel, wort, bitter yellow grapefruit, rotting orange meat. Flavor is bitter bitter yellow grapefruit, ruby red grapefruit sweetness, dry bread crusts, hop cones. Fuller dry body with a creamy finish and softer to average carbonation and a lingering hop bitter bite. Would love a fresher bottle to see how good this might really be.
