750ml bottle. Pours a nice bronze color with a two inch beige head. Taste is of malt, hops, pine, resin, caramel, wood and citrus. Similar aroma. Has a nice body that is mostly full and is a bit on the wet side. Finish is a bit dry and bitter. Easy to drink, enjoyable and well balanced.

A solid double ipa that hides the 9.5% quite well. Pleasantly hoppy without being too bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (5400) - Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/27/2013. Pours slightly hazy deep orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of orange zest, grapefruit, orange rind, lemon zest, caramel, raisin, pine, floral, grass, toast, brown sugar, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced citrus/pine hops with caramel/toasted malts; and solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, orange rind, lemon zest, caramel, raisin, pine resin, floral, grass, toast, brown sugar, and floral/toasted earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine, caramel, toast, brown sugar, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance of citrus/pine hops with caramel/toasted malts; with a good malt/bitterness balance and minimal cloying flavors on the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a slick and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good DIPA style. Good balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and quite smooth to sip on. The age pretty much put it into a barelywine profile in the taste and aromas; but it was still a nicely enjoyable offering as it stands.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper with fine off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, nutty, floral and spicy. Flavor is hoppy, piney hops, spicy, with a nice malty, nutty finish. It has been three years since Ive had this beer and it seems a lot more balanced than I remember. Soft to moderate carbonation, light to medium body, and a crisp texture. Quite enjoyable.

rxeight (3013) - Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Below average double ipa. Too much malt, not enough hops, sort of a stale potpouri taste. Not impressed

wlajwl (6659) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Aroma is yeast, citrus, light tropical fruit and a hint of sugar. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, dark fruit, mild/medium malts and a very dry and bitter finish. A little rough around the edges, pretty decent otherwise.

Chaneybr (52) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Reviewed 8-18-10 I had this one recommended to me by the beer buyer and my local Whole Foods store. He said it was highly regarded at SAVOR, one of the largest beer festivals in the DC area. Ap: Really nice hazy amber color with about a 1/2 inch head that quickly dissipated. Ar: Floral for sure, but quite a bit of sugar as well. T: The sugar was definitely not in the taste though - Hooray! This is extremely well balanced. Very hoppy, with just the right amount of alcohol burn. P: The bitterness doesnt linger, and the sweetness is kept in check! D: ABV is hidden, but definitely there. The alcohol is used for the greater good! O: This is one of the best DIPAs Ive had in the last year. I will definitely get this one again!
