Very attractive amber in the tulip glass. Lacing is fine. Full of aroma. Makes me think of tuberoses, it's so sweetly floral. Very sweet on the lips. Lively slew of flavors contributes to a great mouthfeel, along with the pleasant carbonation. Hot but pleasant, like a pepper. Oranges, nutty aftertaste along with the bitterness. Hops are just crazy but so resiny with the sweet malt to balance.

One of my favorite DIPAs. So big, so rich.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

22oz bottle. No bottling date.

Pours a hazy gold with a finger of light tan foam.

Smells of a good blend of tangerine citrus and sweet caramel malt. It may be a IIPA, but it's not going to be a hop bomb.

Unfortunately the taste is pretty boring compared to the aroma. Starts with a bit of sweetness, but lemony acidity takes over. Plenty of bitterness in the finish, but has an unpleasant alcohol bite to it. I was hoping the flavor would improve as the beer warms, but it isn't.

With all the acidity and bite, the mouthfeel is pretty bad.

This beer looks and smells pretty good, but it's all downhill after that.

3.73/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Deep gold, med-big off-white head steadily shrinks to foamy ring & wisps, no real lace.

Aroma is strong grapefruit (faintly caramelized), orange, raisiny grape juice, hint of pineapple.

Taste is spicy grapefruit up front, becoming more bitter by finish and lingering a bit too much in the aftertaste, by which time it is more peppery. It has hint of bitter orange, nice light juicy yeastiness, some good flavour and character overall, firm and holds up well. It’s also not heavy, but it is somewhat too boozy and hot, a bit one-dimensional and lacking in complexity, and somewhat off-balance with peppery-bitter grapefruit dominating a little too much. In the end, this is a good double IPA, but not great.

It's OK, not great.

Beer is orangish with some hazy. thin head that breaks quickly, minimal lacing.

Lots of fruit in the nose. Citrus hops all the way.

Beer is medium bodied and lowly carbonated on the palate. The overall experience of the beer is good but not phenomenal. It is a hoppy / tropical midpalate, minimal malt presence and a moderately dry finish. I enjoyed it and would have it again but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Thanks to piercival for the sample hookup. A very noble effort indeed.
Bomber to pint glass - no bottling date present but I assume fresh considering the source.

A: Pours a very clear pale color with some dull copper tones to it. A nice 1 finger cap of foam held tight for quite some time. Lazy intermittent lacing.

S: Candied citrus and grapefruit on the nose upfront that quickly develops into more of a clean mango/peachy and pineapple aroma. Very enticing. Slightly sweetens as it sits.

T: Super juicy blast of fruit flavors - bright grapefruit, apricot, pineapple, mango and orange zest. Like a hop JambaJuice. Piney to boot. Bittered to the limit and maybe even a step beyond. Malt is there but always playing backup to the hops. I pick up some slight caramelness but not really the biscuit it states to have on the label. Faint if even. ABV's really starting to come through in the end. Still finishes dry from all of the bitterness.

M: Sticky and resinous on the tongue that allows the bitters to linger and finish with a dryness to the palate.

D: Superb for a big DIPA. 9% ABV is very well masked here due to the mass of hop usage. Slight bitter harshness noteable.

Make no qualms about it this is a hop bomb. A palate wrecker for sure. If it werent for the slight inbalance of intense bitterness present this would be all 5's for me. It comes off a little harsh to the palate even for me but still delivers well. All in all, a well crafted big west coast style DIPA with some in your face hop flavors that just moved this brewery up a few notches in my book. Similar profile to a Ballast Point Double Dorado with less alcohol presence and more bitterness.
Snoogens!

Thanks to shortysdude285 for sending a bottle of this my way. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip.

Pours a light apricot color with a light bit of haziness. The nose contains a good amount of tropical fruits as the base, along with a bit of citrus hops hitting after the stronger tropical notes subside. The taste hits better with a more-dominant hop presence that's pretty well integrated and all matching up. Bit of orange in the background. Medium body with only a touch of alcohol. Pretty heavy bitterness. Nice beer all around. Glad to try.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!

The beer is yellow hued with a thin, white head. The aroma brings a bouquet of varied citrus and inviting hops. The taste is quite good as well, with a dry, bitter finish. The feel is quite pleasant, with the 9% abv well disguised. Overall, a solid beer. I really enjoyed this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.

A: Slightly hazy, medium orange-amber color with less than one finger of diminishing white foam head. Scant lacing remains on the glass.

S: Crystalized orange and pineapple candy are bold, supported sufficiently by a strong backbone of caramel.

T: Begins sweet, with juicy dark citrus, bold acidity, and some aggressive astringency that is surprising in its precociousness. Flavors develop some odd savory qualities as well as fruity esters into the middle, where harsh alcohol leaves a perception of spicy chiles well into the finish that is astringent, medicinal, and bracingly bitter.

M: Medium viscosity, sticky on the palate with resins, and with moderate carbonation.

D: This DIPA smells good enough, but the clashing and confused flavors suggest a kitchen-sink approach to its crafting. It seems appealing until it crosses the tongue, where it repeatedly shows off its faults. Harshness is perhaps the best way to characterize this beer's flavor, ultimately rendering it nearly undrinkable.

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

Pours a light and bright gold color, slight haze, and a pretty nice white head that quickly faded away.

Nice citrus forward nose. Some sugars, hard candies, and a blend of citrus fruits, mostly oranges and lemons. There is also some green resin notes as well. Nice complex aromas on this one.

Beer starts out bitter, mostly like grapefruits. Then you get a nice balance from the malts, soft creaminess and mildly sweet providing good body. Finish has a mineral, resiny hop note, and a touch of warmth to remind you that this is a DIPA.

Mouthfeel is good, full enough, and nicely carbonated.

Overall this is a solid effort. I've been mostly unimpressed with Black Diamond's offerings, but this one is quite nice, and well worth trying. Nicely done.

this is sort of a scary beer. because it comes in with a whopping 9%ABV yet it is emminently smooth and drinkable. you could get in trouble with this bad boy if you didn't know what you were drinkin'. i would put it up there with the Green Flash Imperial IPA and SN Torpedo, which both go down almost too easy for the alcohol punch they pack.

pours a nice clear amber, foams up to a two finger head and leaves a little lacing as you drink it down, but it is a clean fresh tasting beer -- not one you would expect to be "chewey" and thick. this is the IIPA you are after!

the hop aroma is excellent, on the grapefruity side but with a nice piney bite -- they say it is TRIPLE DRY HOPPED, i wish they would give some indication of the varieties they use. they are trying to bowl you over with the hops here and they actually do better than that -- the bitterness level is appropriate, not overpowering, it finishes clean and your palate is not ruinated. you can appreciate a fresh tasting hoppy brew here, they are not killing you with IBUs.

they did a nice job with this beer -- their regular IPA the jagged edge is quite good too -- a quality session brew.

Served from a 22oz bomber into a Duval tulip.

A: Pours a clean straw color, with just a hint of orange color to the overall body. Decently large white head that dissipated pretty slowly, this also leaves a nice lace on the side of the glass.

S: There is a balance of pine and citrus in the nose, they seem to fighting back and forth, but the pine dominates. Some malt sent, but it's dominated by the hop smell more.

T: A lot of resin and pine in the flavor of this one, there is some grapefruit, but more pine and resin, but also some grassy flavors. You can taste the booze near the end of this hop bomb, and that's just what this is a hop bomb. There is very little malt presence.

M: This is very dry, but also has a good full body. The carbonation is perfect, maybe just slightly over carbonated but just perfect for a double like this one.

D: I could add this into a tasting with the greats of PtE, Ruination, Pure Hoppiness and Torpedo; it could go toe to toe with any of these. This is a great West Coast DIPA, and it's a great example of the style. Now I just need to get my hands on some more.

Picked up a 22oz bomber from BevMo in Point Loma and poured it into an "Old Speckled Hen" pint glass.

A: Pours a clean golden/light honey hue with a fat white head that dissipates slowly leaving solid lace in my glass from start to finish.

S: Big citrus hop upfront with a good amount of earthy pine, tropical fruit, salty biscuit, sweet malt and fresh grain.

T: On point with the nose but even more prevalent hop with a big citrus bight, earthy grains, fresh baked bread, carmel malt with just a slight hint of booze at the very end - extremely tasty and well balanced.

M: Medium-bodied, well carbonated with a good amount of bitterness, extremely dry with only a hint of booze at the end(where they hiding all that alcohol ???).

D: Wow - for the style the drinkability is absolutely ridiculous and very friendly. Could pound a few of these in a single sitting - no worries!

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Clear light amber with a thin fizzy white head that dissipates quickly, leaving minimal soapy lacing.

N- Volatile aromas of pine resin, pink grapefruit, and citrus rind. After the head dies down, only mild grapefruit remains.

T- Bitter grapefruit, bitter medicinal pill dust, and citrus rind. There is a subtle fruitiness under all those hops, and the malt is at the threshold of perception.The lightness of malt seems off-style for an imperial IPA. A warming alcoholic surge hits you in the middle and lasts to the finish. Fresh cut grass, pine resin, and bitter grapefruit in the aftertaste.

M- Medium-light, slick but sticky body with moderate carbonation and a dry finish.

D- The medicinal quality prevents me from really enjoying this one.

Pours crystal clear orange amber with a nice pure white head that fades rather fast.

Nose is pine, eucalyptus, camphor which is unique and very appealing and pleasant, with the underlying fresh pineapple one might expect, but it's underlying everything else.

Mouthfeel is medium plus bodied with nice balance and good carbonation. Feels well made and inviting.

Flavors are bold and follow the nose. Somewhat unique pine, eucalyptus, burnt toast bitter with a citric kick. Nice layers and complexities. There is a front palate of sweet fruit that then gives way to the complexities.

Finish is burnt toast bitter; and grapefruit skin oil.

Poured into a New Belgium snifter

A - Golden amber, one finger head, good lacing

S - Tropical hops, sweet sticky malts, a bit piney and a nice hop meets malt balance

T - Sticky sweet floral hops, lemon grass, flowers, Belgian yeast and hoppy but balanced

M - Light, bright, carbonated, sticky, malty and a nice bitterness

D - Awesome for a dipa meets iipa, great beer

Final thought - At $5, this beer is awesome to pound or sip

Re-Reviewed on Mar. 28th 2011

Poured into a New Belgium snifter

A - Golden Orange, half finger off white head and only a little lacing

S - Very sweet, a Belgian yeast note, grass, carnations, toasted and sweet malts, citrus, pine, mangoes, alcohol and the smells are very nice, but pungent

T - Very bittersweet right away and then the notes come out. The yeast is in your face, then the mango, citrus, carnations, grass, toastiness and alcohol come out. The taste is very pungent as well

M - Light and fluffy, except on the tongue it is coated and sticky and the bitter sweet sits right on the back of the tongue

D - At 9% and $4.50 a bottle. This is a nice beer. Lots of complexity and for any IPA lover this is a must have. Not to bitter or sweet, just smooth

Final thought - Enough said

From bottle to tulip glass

Pours an apricot-orange, fairly clear with a sudsy, two inch head. Moderate lacing as the head slowly dissipates. It smells of strong citrusy notes - orange-grapefruit, lemon - along with huge waffs of pine. This beer has a big bouquet, with ample alcohol that warms the nose.

It's no surprise that the bitter, piny notes hit the palate first. Orange rind and grapefruit are right there with them, which bend toward caramelly sweetness at the middle. Alcohol and notes of freshly cracked pepper spice things up. Earthy hops never diminish and dry at the finish.

The beer is rich and oily, but not abnormally for the ABV. Plenty of carbonation leaves the palate free of any sticky residue. This is a complete hopbomb, though, and plenty of lingering bitterness remains between each sip. Not the easiest drinking DIPA, nor the most balanced, but that's not what they were going for here.

Need a hop-fix? This will do just fine.

Thanks to huadog for the chance to try this beer. Poured from a bomber with no freshness indication into a snifter. This brew appears a hazed golden orange color with particulate all through the body despite it being chilled for several hours and a careful pour. 2 fingers worth of fluffy slightly yellowish stained head form and slowly recedes down to about a finger. Lacing clings to the glassware with a connective web-like pattern.

The aroma of this brew surprisingly displays more of a toasted malt sweetness straight out the gate that has some caramel notes that blend into more of the hop characteristics. The hops smell like orange rind mixed with pine and a bit of grapefruit. Once warm, it displays a greater depth of sweetness to the nose coming across like fruit. There is seemingly no indication of the alcohol evident in the nose of this brew.

The taste is a perplexing mixture of flavors. It starts off displaying malt character that is toasty and reminiscent of caramel malt with a mild sweetness. A mild fruitiness and light solvent alcohol impression is evident before orange rind bitterness creeps in leading to an earthy/herbal bitterness that clings inside the mouth and lasts long into the finish. Mid palate though there is a strange mineral taste that is somewhat metallic and slightly off-putting. The metallic flavor blends into the herbal quality of the hops but after a couple of sips it finds it way into the finish.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Initially the alcohol inside this example was well hidden but the warming effects increase as the experience continues. It is hard to be super-critical about this brew, it has some good qualities but there is no knowing how old this bottle is which might explain the lack of "brightness" to the hops. Overall it was fairly balanced and enjoyable (minus the mineral taste) but the malt seemingly out-shined the hops in this example which makes me believe it wasn't that fresh. I appreciate the opportunity to give it a try and would have it again if black diamond started to introduce some bottle coding on their offerings.

I got this 22oz bottle of goodness courtesy of ipa247, thanks Jeff! A small blurb from the label: "Up front the nose is big and assertive with aromas of candied orange, grapefruit, and pine. Biscuity malt layers balance the aggressive hops as the nectar glides over the tongue".

It pours a deep orange color with a thick frothy yeast-cake of foam on top. Estimated SRM of 18-20. Lots of floating bits, which I kind of like. The foam alone brings this to a 4, add in the nice color and sediment and it's a 4.5 for me.

Very nice hops in the aroma, definitely the grapefruit and pine indicated from the label, especially grapefruit. You can tell there's a reasonably large malt bill from the background sweetness, and luckily for me it's more of a pale malt than a caramel malt character. It lets the hops more or less run the show aroma-wise. Just a hint of barleywine tendencies, but not too strong.

This tastes great. Much more bitter than most IPAs, at least the malt doesn't do much flavorwise. Very dry with lingering hops burn, I like this stuff quite a bit. Nice pine needles in the aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is thicker than normal, this being the main contribution of the malts in my estimation. Fairly sticky and along with the flavors this gives the impression of fresh hops resin, a nice complement to the flavors.

I'd happily try this again any time, another great DIPA from the state of CA.

Awesome beer. It's not the most pungent DIPA, but the hop notes are strong enough and come through with some very nice aromas. It smells like a mix of tangerine rind, pineapple and pine needles. It even picks up some apricot and grapes, as it warms. It's a sweetly citric, inviting aroma. And the taste is almost better. The sweetness is quite light; not much crystal malt flavor here. The finish is dry and almost perfectly bitter, in that it's strong but never drowns out the hop notes. The aftertaste is a very long-lasting pine resin hoppiness. Mouthfeel is happily dominated by hop oiliness. Appearance is a light copper with a creamy head, white tinged with yellow. Kudos to Black Diamond for another step in the right direction.

My wife picked this up for me a couple of days ago.

Appearance- golden color, medium size head

Smell- piney hops

Taste- piney hops, not real bitter at all, pretty good

Mouthfeel- medium bodied

Drinkability- pretty good, I liked it a lot. I think this is one of the best ones I have had from Black Diamond.

Picked up at Healthy Spirits in SF. Had this brewey's Quad and hated it, but the DIPA, I've been told is another story.

Pours a murky hazed golden hue. I smell a good balance of malt and citrus. Both come through with a clean finish.

Nice and hoppy, but not uber bitter. The reminds me of a less balanced Marin IPA. First sip presents a surge of malt, grapefruit and pine flavors at first. There is a heavily malted after taste. This beer has a nice, floral hop presentation. The mouthfeel is good, but I can sense that if this beer was warmer than it is now (it's pretty chilled) that it would be too sugary and sticky. Great textbook DIPA. Solid effort.

A-Pours a murky orange color. Very hazy. Head is thin and white. Leaves wide bubbly lacing craters along the glass.

S-Dank, hempy, resinous and bubble gummy. Abrasive and strong. Hops are very muscular. Not sure how much I love the expression of the hops. The intensity of the aroma is excellent, however. Very, very hoppy.

T-Again, big, thick and dense in terms of hops. Wet grapefruit flesh and dank pine along with cat piss and marijuana. Malty flavors are much less intense. I get some wet, boozy, sweet breaded malts. Interesting flavor and I love the beer's power.

M-Bitter and dry. Flavor lingers for quite some time. More of a sipper.

O/D-Definitely better than I thought it would be. Didn't love the hop flavor too much but I loved the beers intensity and strength. A hyper-hopped brew that is worth trying but I didn't fall in love with the hop bouquet.

On tap at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is pretty tasty but the yeast flavor is pretty noticeable.

On-tap 9/15/2012 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a dark gold color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with a strong fruity citrus flavor. Then a strong earthy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid 2IPA worth drinking for while.

New to Maine, pretty nice DIPA.

In a tulip the beer was a hazy copper color with a medium-sized off-white head. There was a little bit of lace.

Lots of piney hops in the aroma. Some citrus, mostly orange. Sweet malt background.
