Marc (486) - Yokosuka, - JAN 19, 2008
Creamy oily beige head on top of a glowing coppery orange body. Creamy, bready, and piney nose is amazingly balanced. Toasted biscuits and citrus rind. Firm mouthfeel with a little tingle, very herbal and vegital hops with a firm carmel backbone. Hides 8.2% very well. Very well balanced, hard to believe its a double IPA. Finishes bready and softly bitter.

drjoeng (1103) - SINGAPORE - JUL 13, 2016
8%ABV. Imperial IPA Poured out amber. 10SRM. Nose has aromas of pineapple, tangerine, pine, and citrus peel. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has sweet malt with wheat toast, and honeyed graham crackers. Hops are citrus peel, pine and hyssop. Malt body is a little more aggressive than I like it. Finish is medium. Hyssop Overall a very very good brew.

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2016
Golden and hazy, medium head. Good, hoppy brew - some mid 00s hop character, big of alcohol late and a light pale malt character to hold it together, as the hops get chewy towards the finish.

wchesser (2042) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle from kansaibeerlvrs-thanks, Phillip! Deep orange brown. Nose is caramel malts, some orange citrus and pine hops. Taste is fairly malty with bitter finish. Slightly unclean finish. Flavor is fairly malty with standard American hop profile. Suprised by the ABV on this. Drinks a lot more like a pale ale to me. Alright.

visionthing (5130) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
33cl bottle from Midori, Nagano. Pours slightly hazy amber with a modest pale off-head.Hoppy aroma with pine, caramel, tropical fruits and hints of citrus. Medium sweet, but well balanced, solid bitterness and medium flavour intensity. Quite fresh and delicious. Reminds me of why DIPA was my favourite style some time ago.

minutemat (5146) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016
330ml bottle, from Euro Secret Santa trade. Pours hazy gold, white head. Aroma is fruity orange & tropical juice. Taste continues, some pine marmalade and sweet malt. Perhaps a little too sweet.
