Tap @ The Bistro’s 2010 10th Annual Double IPA Festival. A golden color wit ha pine syrup aroma with a full bodied and robust flavor. Very rich.
"a little bolder than the IPAX and good as well, though not better. balance is out the window as this is all extreme malty sweetness and a sh--load of citrus and pine. not that there’s anything wrong with that..." aleph (231) - - APR 7, 2012

On tap at Triple Rock. Pours a clear golden amber with a small white head that settles to a ring and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is pine and grapefruit hops as well as some sweet candy sugar and caramel. The taste is sweet with caramel malt and some pine and grapefruit hops. The finish is boozy with a decent bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. A bit too sweet with a decent amount of alcohol coming through. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2012
A - Pours a clear copper-orange color with a thin finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind a bit of lace.
S - Aroma is full of pine and citrus hops. Lots of grapefruit. There is a bit of sweet caramel malt alongside.
T - Starts off with lots of pine and herbal hops with lots of bitterness and some light caramel malts. Through the middle, the citrus grapefruit hops start to come through with even more bitterness. The finish is a mix of pine hops and strong bitterness with a touch of booze.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a very dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Huge hop flavor here with some really nice strong bitterness. Really nice big hoppy DIPA.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours with a hazed orange to amber hued body with a small white head that lasts. Aromas are big, floral, citrus, dank hop aromas. Light caramel and some alcohol. Medium-light esters. Flavors are dank, tropical fruit, slightly over ripened fruit. Noticeable alcohol. Medium sweetness and caramel. Grassy finish. Medium to fuller body. Finishes medium dry and with medium to light bubbles. Just a bit too sweet for my tastes. I enjoyed DANKness more! joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 14, 2011
On tap at the brewery. It pours a bright golden color with a white head. The aroma is straight up marijuana and citrus. Fresh and very inviting. The flavor is the same. Very light bodied, hoppy and tasty. One of my favorites. I wish I could clone this brew! Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2010

GABF 2010. Another top 10 beer of the fest easily- one of the best DIPAs. Pours a hazed light copper orange with a nice sticky head. Aroma is big dank weed, huge grapefruit, simcoe, columbus, and other big big pnw hops and very fresh- light cara, and toasted malt backbone for light sweetness light body and alcohol and that is it- hops all the way through. FLavor is resinous, dank, citrus, pine, grapefruit, sappy, almost hop oil extract flavor with a big resinous hoppy bitter finish and pretty dry overall- easy drinking. Loved it. Went back every time I passed the booth. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2010
GABF 2010. Best IPA/DIPA of GABF in my opinion. Hop Heads seek this beer out, you will not be disappointed. KILLER. Well balanced hop bomb, sticky resiny hops. decent malt backbone to stand with. Incredible beer.
