Golden im Glas, feiner weißer Schaum, extrem fruchtig in der Nase, schlank im Körper, blumig hopfig fruchtig, angenehm bitter, super Bier! dhatton (241) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2015
On tap at Draught 55. Enjoy by 7-14-15 variety. Crystal clear golden body with very thin film of white foam. Fragrant aroma of pine and citrus. Fresh fruit flavors; tangerine, peach, grapefruit, and orange peel. Bitter dry finish. Beautiful aroma - can’t go wrong with this IPA. SinH4 (5538) - Garching b. Mï¿½nchen, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2015
On tap at Lucky Baldwin?s. Batch 7-4-15. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma of marmalade, grapefruit. Taste is dry, grapefruit, with a warming booze kick in the end. Damn, these fresh hops do make a difference! Scottishchris (723) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle at Brewdog Edinburgh as accidental post work beer. Batch 07-04-15. Clear golden, white head. Citrus, grapefruit and light resin nose. Medium-light body, soft fizz, surprisingly fresh and clean. Unctuous tropical fruit and hops. So so drinkable. It was gone and my head was spinning. Delicious. alobar (3857) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2015
7-4-15 version. Pours golden orange with aroma of citrus, grass, and pine. Citrus and pine flavor with some grass and some grain. Very nice beer.

The aroma was pleasant with a sweet nose. Nice clear amber with a two finger head. Taste was clean and bitter with a little funky lingering taste. Overall solid DIPA Bricks (1140) - Delaware, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Mediocre color, great foamy head. Aroma is a tad funky, w/ hay. Taste is citrus.. somewhat bitter. Good. KamGoPro (220) - Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2015
7-4-15 edition on tap. Absolutely amazing aroma, strong and very fresh all around! Amber pour. The bitterness doesn’t over power any of the light citrus and grainyness. Wonderful! AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Pours a medium amber golden with a nice, tight cream colored head. Solid IPA with full floral and pine hop presence and well balanced malt. MartinT (10014) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Harsh alcohol, medicinal lengths and plastic-like moments attack this Double IPA’s floral and citrusy hops, bewildering the palate completely.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the translucent golden.
-The mouthfeel was lean and geared towards drinkability.
-However, the booming alcohol made this awful on the drinkability scale.
-I have no idea why this one got served... My palate was fresh as well, having just had a pint of their wonderful Go To IPA before it. I’d like to fault myself here, but I don’t see what I could have done wrong in this case.
-Will try it again since it’s gotten so many great ratings. Surely there must have been something awry with the glass, the tap line, something...
On tap at Stone Liberty Station.
