Aroma seems a little weak, earthy/musty kind of smell? Taste is really clean, nice bitter finish. Not one of favorite double ipa's but still good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Decent DIPA. Seems like a bit too much bitterness just for the sake of bitterness. Aromas arent that citrusy, but more flowery. Kinda like Size 7 better overall.

bookman10 (1097) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2013
2013 vintage. Pours a copper-amber, with massive, pillowy head. Floral, hop aroma, with some citrus, some bread. Flavor is amazingly balanced: theres the expected citrus hop bite, but theres also a lot of underlying malt sweetness, so that neither side overwhelms the other. An outstanding double IPA (although the bottle indicates its a triple!).

bucs572000 (237) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Aroma is citrus, orange, pine, and grapefruit. Flavor is citrus up front then I get orange peel, pine, grapefruit, and tropical fruit. Actually pretty juicy for being so hoppy.

kbutler1 (1379) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Draft. Pours a nice orange/yellow with a nice white head. Fruity, juicy, orange in the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Nice blend of malt backbone and orange rind bitterness with some sweet fruit notes. Tasty.

TheHOFF43 (2049) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Tap at brewery. Pours a nice dark orange with tons of hops on the aroma. Stronger/boozier than I expected based on aroma, nice hops with little malt. Definitely packed with hops but I like that.

burgy (456) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Mild aromatics of pine needles, lemon peel and slight astringt notes. Pours nice and golden. Nice bitter punch in the face that lingers and mellows. Palate is full and thick. Overall, a little too bitter in flavor to be rated higher.

BVery (10218) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Muddy Waters. Apparently tap is better than bottle, per recent ratings. This is awesome - citrus hop, caramel, super rich - just killer.

thirdeye11 (6159) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2013
(750ml bottle best by 2.24.2012 ) rich deep orange with sparse offwhite bubbles. Nose is rich and caramel like a barleywine, very little bitter citrus, candied citrus. Taste of rich caramel, fresh crushed grain, lightly bitter citrus, grapefruit linger without a bitter linger. Thick body, syrupy but I like it. Nicely balanced to be honest.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle:   Deep amber, large frothy creamy head, nice lacing.   Resiny nose, slight candied citrus peel, a little tea leaf.   I can get a whif of alcohol as well.   Similar on the tongue, but seems a little oxidized or light struck.   Hides the 11% ABV really well.   Lingering pithiness, hoppy, slight candied citrus peel.   Not as heavy as I thought it would be.   Decent, but not too vibrant, but at least smoother than I expected.   Thanks for the bottle Bob!
