22 oz. bottle tried 14 Feb 2010. Gift from K&J, thanks!

Poured in a Twisted Pine shaker pint. Medium sized off white head. Moderate carbonation. Clear orange color. Aroma is fragrant, juicy, orangey, some resin, orange juice, pith and zest. Starts sweet, quickly becoming peppery and then pithy bitter. Sweet sticky finish with a lot of lingering bitter orange peel. Finish is warming with ethanol. Aftertaste is citric and long lasting. Medium body.

Send us more K!

thanks to pjeagles for this one.

A-Pours hazy golden blond with an inch of foamy off white head. Leaves inconsistent rings of soapy lace.

S-A nice blend of piny and citric hops, pale sweet malts.

T/M-Chewy at first. Gets nice and dry mid-palate with a grainy, citric finish. Hop profile is fairly dry, with some grapefruit/fresh cut grass flavors. Hop forward, not terribly malty. Very well balanced and drinkable, considering the ABV. Could get into trouble with this one. Medium/full bodied with moderate, chewy carbonation.

O-Good stuff.

Received in a trade with GabrielM thanks!

Appearance: Pours a soft golden with a touch of orange and a nice rocky white 2 finger crown that displays good retention and lace. Nice hop oil sheen over the crown as well.

Smell: Grapefruit over bready malt. Lots of bitterness but not much depth.

Taste: Same as nose but a bit more "rind" like. Could use some tropical fruit notes in my opinion. A very pithy DIPA with nicely controlled bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with good carbonation. Standard.

Drinkability: Sessionable DIPA here.

Poured a dark golden amber color with a lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit, orange, tropical fruit and a hint of pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, grapefruit, orange zest and light tropical fruit with a smooth dry lingering bitter grapefruit finish. ™

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

APPEARANCE: Orange and hazy, actually more opaque. There's really no way anyone can see through this beer. A strong, white head sits on top and lingers for quite some time. Lacing is fairly strong, particularly for a DIPA.

SMELL: Lemon actually leads the way in this one. The aroma begs the hop head to take a sip. A lot of citrus, a little pine and not much else.

TASTE: This is a damn good Double IPA. For a DIPA it certainly leans towards the more bitter side with a lot of lemon exposed to the palate, however, a strong dose of malt makes itself known rather quickly.

MOUTHFEEL: Light and very easy drinking. Creamy is not quite the word to be used here, but neither is sparkly or soda-y. Non-offensive may be the best way to view this CO brew.

OVERALL: I was quite impressed with the balance of this beer. It really is quite fantastic.

Pours a golden amber with a thick, white head. Decent retention and good lacing. Aroma redolent of pink grapefruit and spice balanced by sweet malt notes. Citrus and pine hit the palate first followed by caramel and toffee notes. Finishes bitter. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Overall, a solid, well crafted double ipa.

Pours a clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Smell is orange rind and malt. Taste is peppery spicy up front, with a dry malt middle and a piney bitter finish. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy, low carbonation. Drinkability is good, it gets a bit strong after awhile though with the 22oz bottle. I would definately get this again though.

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber color with a respectable head; good stickage and a few shards a lace

Smell: Biscuity, with a hint of toffee and tropical hops (pineapple, orange and mango)

Taste: Biscuity, up front, through the tropical hops arrive early and stay late; underneath, there is a bit of toffee flavor that lingers in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Nicely balanced with a very nice hop profile

Thanks, sunkistxsudafed, for the opportunity

Bomber into a Duvel tulip; bottled 7/15/11, enjoyed in early October and reviewed from notes. Big thanks to vonschplieffen for sharing.

A: Light amber body topped by an inch of frothy white foam. Good retention, light lace. I'm a fan of the light coloration - the promise of hop dominance is exhilarating.

S: Bright, fresh, citrusy hops. Lemon really stands out, with grapefruit and pine backing it up. Nice.

T: Citrusy, floral, bitter, and tasty. A hit of malt gives balance. Straightforward and enjoyable.

M: Smooth medium body, light, creamy carbonation. Lovely.

O: Quite good. While nothing spectacular, it did what a DIPA should do and it did it well. I'd love to drink this fresh from the source someday.

Cheers!

Pretty nice DIPA.

In a tulip the beer was a hazy orange color. The voluminous white head resembled whipped cream. There was abundant lace.

Citrus and herbal aroma. Some malt, but not an appreciable amount.

Same thing with the taste. Lots of grapefruit and piney hops, not so much malt.

Definitely a hop-forward DIPA. Medium-bodied, very enjoyable.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into chalice.
Pours a gold copper clean color...nice rich head. Rich head and lace remain till the end..beautiful.
Aroma of rich malts and herbal hops.
Significant carbonation and giant mouthfeel.
Flavors of piney hops, rich amber malts, white grapefruit rind, black pepper, pine sap, kick yer butt alcohol, damn near chalk bitterness balanced by an amazing creaminess, bitter fruit rind, a slight sweet background, hop flavors galore...lets give it 5 minutes...
OK...clear copper, small head, lovely floral bread aroma, rich flavors of tantalizing malts and floral hops, some bread crust, pepper, pine, citrus, bitter hops, freshly baked bread...nicely blended...gotta have another taste yummy! Not for ninnies :)
Damn...with this beer I enjoy the vibrant aroma slightly more than the flavor, but the flavor is very tasty...from a beer comparative and price point perspective, this beer rocks! The herbal floral bread sweet hot bun aroma stands out and remains till the last pour. There is a little funky melon remaining until the end also. For me rich and tasty, complex and intriguing, compelling...very nice.

Pours a clear copper color with a big, soapy white head that lingers and laces.

Smells of clean grapefuit and some citrus, some light vegetal quality also comes through.

Taste is up front grapefruit with just a hint of bready malt that goes into a more citrus, stone fruit middle before ending on a bitter, but not astringent, floral/grapefruit/citrus note. Not bad, but it doesn't jump out either.

Medium body with medium carbonation, the alcohol is balanced well.

This is a cascade, grapefruit bomb and a fine DIPA.
