Had on tap at the Praying Monk in Scottsdale Arizona. Fresh and hoppy. Pineapple and candy on the nose. Nice head with decent retention. Lots of lacing and sticky mess in the glass. Well balanced for such high alcohol. Enjoyed and would come back to this.

Pours a golden hazed amber hue with a creamy dimple laden two finger ever present head and some bubbly clingy lacing,on pouring the bottle I immediately am assaulted by the resinous pine,gooseberries and toffeeish malts,the mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation and the taste definitely packs a punch of stringent bitter piney resinous hops,some herbal harshness,a sweet cameo of toffeeish malts and finished with a berry bittersweetness and overall it's average nothing over the top and better ones out there cheers.

Poured from a draft into a pint glass at San Diego Brewing Company on March 16, 2012. Color was hazy caramel. About one finger of head. Light film on lacing on the top. Even amount of cobweb film on the sides.

Got a deep whiff of citrus hops, probably lemon. Fairly balanced but nothing too special overall.

Not too much citrus in the taste, but very bitter. Can really taste the alcohol. Kind of smooth. Lots of different things going on in the taste.

Medium body. Slight texture. Average carbonation,. Bitter, but smooth finish.

Just an OK double IPA. It had its moments but I wouldn’t go out of my way to have another one.

12 oz bottle was poured into a snifter at Frank n Steins in Orlando.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale orange color with great clarity of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Floral, grassy, citrus, candied orange, herbal,caramel, and bready malts.

Taste: Same as above with mild bitterness in the rear. Nice warm booze. Hops held up well and malts help balance things out.

Mouthfeel: Sipper, full bodied, bitterness, some booze, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty nice DIPA. Got better with time and getting warmer.

Dark orange color for an IPA; light cream-colored head with OK retention.

Dank and juicy aroma, which translates to the palate; pineapple hop juice.

Lively and oily feel; medium bodied.

This is a decent brew, but there are way too many great DIPAs out there for it to truly stand out.

A-Deep garnet with golden highlights. A thick off-white head slowly reduced to a thin cap and left copious swaths of lace.

S-Deeply rich but muted malt sweetness with some telltale American grown C type hops poking through the malt layer. Touch of alcohol burn finishes this one off.

T-A big and burly malt bruiser with spicy citrus hop notes struggling to make themselves known. Not what I typically look for in a DIPA. Good, yes. Great, no. Warming alcohol makes an appearance in the finish.

M-Medium-heavy body, this one is a quite the heavyweight of DIPA's without being overly sweet or sticky. I like the feel as it makes you feel like you are drinking a beer with pendulous BALLS!

D-I liked it to an extent but the more I drank the more weary I became with it. A decent beer for sure but it simply brings too much for me to enjoy in a DIPA. If this were a RIS I might think differently but it's not so....

from notes taken on a hazy trip to Phoenix in October
A - significantly hazy brown-0range, solid head with decent retention and random lacing
S - herbal and pine resin aroms up front with some caramel and orange peel background
T - pineapple and orange zest with equally strong pine resin hops, significant caramel malt backbone, light boozy sweetness
M - medium body with light carbonation, sticky throught he middle with ABV heat creeping up on the finish along with significant bitterness
O - a soid DIPA with in your face hoppiness, a little spicy on the alcohol but to be expected at over 9%

S - Apricot in smell, citrus, malt, juicy.

T - Huge malt, hops are present but not the players.

M - Medium body, good carb, fair balance.

D - Nice to try a different version of it!

Bottle

Thanks for this one, Gordon!

Clear orange and auburn with a thick, persistent off-white head. Lines of lacing left down the glass.

Citrus (lots of orange flesh and skin), sweet caramel and toffee, and alcohol heat combine for a strong, powerful aroma.

High bitterness, mild citrus undertones, bready and sweet (caramel) malts, and warm alcohol burn.

Medium bodied, though oily and with a hot alcohol presence throughout.

Decent and drinkable, but doesn't stand with the best of the bunch.
