2.1
gnomungus (89) - - JAN 26, 2015
Abnormally blonde for an imperial ipa. Nose is super bubblegum and taste is not much different. If you want some Bazooka Joe, it’s not bad, but I didn’t finish mine.

3.7
nuplastikk (6216) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2015
12oz bottle picked up in West Philadephia. Pretty legit modern IIPA. The hops aren’t really that exciting or overboard, the big rich malts still carry this through, but it has a cleaner feel than IIPAs of yesteryear. An enjoyable enough beer, but I think Dirtwolf has it beat.

3.5
bugsizzy (69) - USA - JAN 26, 2015
Aroma is sort of funky citrus (mango/orange). Hop bite seems more up front and fades to finish tart citrus; not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DinVT (30) - Vermont, USA - JAN 26, 2015
The alcohol taste stays with you through each sip, leaving a dull, slightly bitter - but likable - pallate.

DocLock (10653) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy copper with off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, resiny hops, pine, grapefruit. Tastes intensely hoppy, caramel malty, with notes of pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit.

3.7
luttonm (6166) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2015
12oz bottle in Seattle. Pale lemony yellow. Nice pungent lemony hop zest, very clean flavors, strong light-bodied dipa. Lemony citrus all the way through. Nice beer, super drinkable.

3.3
raphael (1239) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 24, 2015
A swampy smell, a little minty, mashed corn, light resin/ Paler yellow with thin white head. I re-check the label to make sure this isn’t a “Belgian IPA.” Tastes swampy too (no mention of fresh hops on label),, with straw, resin, alcohol, almost orange. Mixed palate and finish, with definite warming. I’m a good fan of Victory but this a little disappointing.

3.9
smith4498 (3641) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours clear dark golden color with white head. Aromas of tropical fruits and pine. Bitter grapefruit rind flavor with some peach, pineapple, pine and a touch of caramel malt. Medium body with average carbonation.

3.7
greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Light orange, no head. Strong aroma of citrus and floral. Floral is dominant in the taste, pungent. Not might favorite kind of hops, but very decent DIPA. ABV is noticeable, gut warmer.

3.7
flatmatt (1563) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2015
12 oz bottle, best by 24 May 2015. Pours golden with some fine particles and a white head. Spicy hop aroma, orange citrus. Juicy orange citrus hop flavor, spicy, a bit floral. Fresh and juicy, not so much strong or bitter. It’s pretty good.
