Bottle I brought to share at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and brown sugar flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the hop presence in the flavor seems a bit old with this bottle.

one of the better beers ive had from these guys, which unfortunately still isnt saying a whole lot. its a really blonde imperial ipa, with a bright yellow color, really pale for the style, and with a thick white head over two inches high. it s smells still quite sweet from the grain, like it could get fermented down even dryer and stronger, and the hops dont really pop in the nose for me. the flavor, despite being done with the lighter color grain, is a little cerealy tasting, it overbalanced the hops, which come across leafy and vegetal but without the oily intensity i usually look for in a big ipa. bitterness is robust though. a rather drinkable can of big ipa, being a little lighter and not so huge in body or even abv for the style, but it just doesnt seem special to me, underwhelming but not bad overall.

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

Appearance: Pours a cloudy lighter shade of amber with a one finger head that refuses to budge but leaves plenty of squiggles behind

Smell: Resinous and piney, with undertones of citrus, biscuity malt and a smidge of fusel alcohol

Taste: Biscuity, up front, with an increasingly piney flavor; by mid-palate, some citrusy tones appear underneath along with the fusel alcohol; after the swallow, the alcohol and pine dominate, along with a minty character

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation and a bit of warmth in the gullet

Drinkability: This is so close to being really good but just has some problems in the fusel alcohol department; if the brewery can get that under control, it would be top notch

Big thanks to portia99 for sending this out my way!

A: Pours a beautiful light copper with orange tints. Massive white head with plenty of craters. Excellent retention and some very nice lacing on the way down.

S: Plenty of citrus and floral hops alongside some definite malt sweetness. Fruity characteristics come through along with the pale malt.

T: Much like the nose...sweetness balances out some of the hops. Hops are primarily floral with some tangerine and other citrus making their way in as well. Normally I'm not a fan of DIPA's with plenty of malt backing them up, but this one is surprisingly quite delicious in that respect.

M: This is where the sweetness is a bit of a drawback, but not that much. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation and a mild alcohol presence.

D: Highly drinkable. This has made the evening quite enjoyable, and I'm very much looking forward to the additional bottle that I have.

Finally got a change to try this in bottle form. Had it a while back on tap and it was awesome.

A: Large thick creamy head slowly rises up to 2 fingers in my SA PP Glass. Semi hazy bright golden orange honey colored with quite a few bubbles rising up from the etch at the bottom, that I can barely see. The head leaves a perfect lacing.

N: A strong hop presence, with some nice malts. Starts with quite a bit of piny hops, and some citrus, chewy hops, and even a fresh musty wet hop burst. Below that is some malt character, with a little sweetness and heaviness, with an aroma that lets you know there's some booze in it. A juicy grapefruit aroma wafts its way through it all too.

T: It flays over my tongue thanks to the glass, and spreads that heavy hop character all over. It has a lot of strange hops. First with the musty fresh wet hop, then some pine, citrus, and grapefruit, followed with a slight chewiness, and then even fruity flavors. All that is even followed with some bubblegum. A slight spicy hop character as well. Pretty bitter but not overwhelming. I have to chew it to get through all that to the semi thick malt base and slight sweetness.

M: Pretty thick and chewy, esp for only 7.5% DIPA. Tons of carbonation with that.

F: At first it seems to die out quickly, as the bitterness fades to a slightly sweet malty character. Then a strong bitterness starts to come on with lots of spicy hop character. At this point it dries off quite a bit and adds a strong spicy hop and bitterness, with more musty wet hops lingering. A slight sticky syrupy feel is also there for a while, with a slight malt impression.

Thanks to portia99 for this extra.

Poured into weyerbacher tulip.

Pours a finger and a half of khaki creamy colored head. Fades to a thin layer, but leaves some sticky lace. Color is a bright golden orange. Some active carbonation in the glass.

Aroma: Some very sweet citrus notes right away. Fresh oranges, lemons, both present. It has some pine flavored hops. It kind of reminds me of a pine-sol like aroma in a beer form (but not in a bad way).

Taste: An odd citrus bittering flavor up front with some alcohol showing. More bready malts here as well. The pine hops are definitely here in full force. A very odd tasting dipa. Something is off here.

Mouthfeel: Very bitter, but a bit creamy as well. Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Ends very sticky and hoppy.

Overall, this beer was alright, but something was off in the taste for a dipa to me. Glad I had a chance to try this one though. It is somewhat drinkable. Thanks, Bill!

22 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a clear copper, topped with 2 big foamy fingers of thick off-white foamy head. This retains with a rich looking finger that leaves back a cascade of robust spotty lacing. The aroma is floral feeling, with a dam herbal leafiness to it. Green smelling earthy citrus, spice, and pine are all fairly pronounced here. Thick sweet grains sit under the hops and control the nose maybe a bit too much at times.

The taste is pretty similar to the experience with the aroma. The hops are assertive, being spicy, resinous feeling, and bitter with grapefruit and rind. There is a bit of sweeter fruit involved here as well but the citrus is mostly coming off as bitter. The majority of the balance in this is mostly coming from a thick malt backbone of toasted graininess. This grainy sweetness hangs in the finish, along with hoppier notes of spice, resins, and pith. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied, with a prickly carbonation that lies on top of some more herbal feeling underlying slickness. This definitely has some alcohol beef to it and while it mostly drinks well for its size, the warmth factor does increasing pick up as this sits and warms.

Based on the early reputation of this beer, I was expecting a little more here. While there was no lack of hop flavors, this was unfortunately also way too malty and grainy feeling in spots as well. At first I thought that maybe this was out of date even though I had bought this out of the cooler at Julio's in Westboro, MA (which always seems to move beer fast) but now I'm not so sure after reading some more recent reviews. Maybe this is one of those ones that you need to try with maximum freshness on it. I'd be willing to check this one out on draft sometime to find out.

This one is the orange IPA color with a very white foam in the tall tulip. Clear with no sediment in the bottle. Nice champagne bubbles and plenty spritzy on the tongue. A fruity hop aroma.

Some malty sweetness and a big alcohol flavor, sort of like Everclear and club soda. But here come the hops! Bitter and resiny, with a sharp mouthfeel. Very bitter aftertaste. Dry finish, in spite of the malt. A hint of spoiled fruit and mustard greens.

This one is a little more acidic and bitter than I enjoy. So many IPAs, and this one may be much loved on its home turf, but I don't find it worth the detour. From the 22 oz bottle bought at K'nB Wine Cellars in San Diego for $8.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep orange color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick, but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is an excellent blend of floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste is very well-balanced and starts with sweet flavors of citrus and caramel that are quickly followed by a strong but not-over powering hops bitterness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Very smooth and very crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, excellent representation of style, couldn't be happier that this beer is now bottled and is not just available on-tap. It's a very good 2IPA that I could drink for a whole evening.

Thrilled to finally be able to have this one, I immediately cracked it open when I got home last night. Served cold and enjoyed while I cooked burgers, this one was consumed on 05/13/2010.

Rich dark orange amber pour was very cloudy even from the start. A nice head nearly two inches high then came up and over the top, settling down with lots of webbing and lacing down the sides of the glass. Lots of visible carbonation was also apparent from the very beginning. A very nice overall look, classic for the style.

Aroma is very fresh, lots of ripe, astringent citrus notes coming through the air almost immediately. Very floral and juicy. As it warmed a light bit of pineapple and grapefruit start to separate them, but there was by no means any bit of a malty balance here, this was a straight up hop lovers dream. Biting, sharp hops pierce the tongue immediately. Again lots of fresh fruity notes, orange, grapefruit, citrus, tons of sharp hops. Very nice light body is well carbonated and this lends itself well to hiding any ABV that might be a concern. Loads of follow through here as the flavor seems to longer on the palate for what seems like forever before you can finally shake that last taste.

Overall this was a great, great DIPA. So soft and bitingly sharp with the flavors, light, easy to drink and very enjoyable. Glad I have a couple bottles and would not mind having this all the time.

I purchased this at Yankee Spirits in Montpelier VT, poured chilled from the can into a cervoise.

The color is a radiant golden with amber highlights and thick rocky white head with very fine bead, lace sticks well. The smell is pungent with mango, pineapple and citrus hop aromas with some faint malt sweetness and gentle alcohol accenting. The feel is great, not extremely bitter yet has a nice spiced texture with low malt in the feel and mild alcohol with a semi-dry finish.

The taste is very good with plenty of hop flavor interwoven in the layers of herbal, tropical and citrus with some gentle hints of grassy hop and spice with an almost pine-like taste which teeters between pineapple and grapefruit juiciness. The taste of alcohol becomes more apparent as it warms but at 8% it is still not overboard for the strength. I like this a lot, a high quality Imperial Ipa, very drinkable and packed with hop flavor, not just bitterness.

Thanks to Phil for throwing this one in during a recent trade.

A: The pour is a slightly cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head and some nice lacing.

S: Tons of grapefruit, lemon rind, and tropical fruit in the nose. Wonderfully hoppy with just a touch of sweetness and bready malt.

T: The flavor is a nice mixture of sweetness (brown sugar?) and hop fruitiness and bitterness. The hops are very heavy on the grapefruit with a bit of pineapple and some nice pine on the finish.

M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation and a crisp finish.

D: A really nice IIPA and one of the better east coast offerings for the style. I would be happy to have this one again.

22oz brown bomber with a freshness date.

A: Beer is not afraid to foam, mild hazed pale bronze color with a massive head.

S: Pungent citric, mild tobacco, tropical fruit, mint, coconut taffy and sweet bread.

T&M: Creamy, smooth, a healthy bigger body but not heavy. Hops are all over from a blanket of bitterness to a full on show of flavor; wild herbs, blonde tobacco, exotic spice & ripe citric rind. Ripe fruit from the alcohol and a meshing of hops, maltiness is more prevalent than most Imperial IPAs ... the balance is great to see, some sweetness there as well. Bittersweet finish.

O: Not the earth-shattering hop nuke which is fine, very drinkable hop juice here.

Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Props to monsterzero for this beastly extra!

I've seen some decent chatter about this brew lately, so I'm kinda psyched to be able to unexpectedly sample it. It pours a clear copper orange topped by a finger of short-lived off-white foam. The nose comprises pine sap, ruby red grapefruit, hard boiled eggs (the kind you'd find at a salad bar), and some light buttery toffee. The taste holds notes of orange peel, lemon zest, pine needles, and creamy caramel. Surprisingly, the hops are toned down a bit from the nose, leaving a much more balanced DIPA than I am used to. The caramel is stronger than usual, maintaining this lovely balance. The body is a solid medium, with moderate carbonation and a very lightly chewy feel. Overall, one of the better DIPAs I've had the pleasure of sampling. Good times without falling victim to an avalanche of Schwarzenegger-style hops.

Poured from a bomber into a DFH snifter glass

A: Pours a cloudy orange with a chunky one finger head with good staying power. This sheets of lacing down the sides.

S: Hit with lots of citrusy hops, some grapefruit and a little bit of orange peel. Hint of malt on the back end.

T: Not as over the top hoppy/bitter as most doubles I have had. There is some nice citrus and a little pine action which gives way to a malty back end and a slightly bitter finish.

M/D: Thinner than expected, but pretty easy drinking. Felt and tasted more like a regular IPA than an imperial. I liked it, but didn't love it.

Impressive, dense head that settles very slowly in rocky fashion (leaving a really cool dome). Dark gold-orange color; very cloudy. Excellent lace!

Classic DIPA aromas of citrusy hop and mild, clean lighter malt.

Up front the flavor is balanced--mostly grainy malt with a note of grapefruity hop. The texture is full with an equally high level of carbonation. Holding the brew in my mouth, it stays predominantly malty. The swallow is where the hop bitterness shows up, more subtly than some. The aftertaste is lasting but not biting. No notable alcohol presence.

Here is one of the more interesting DIPA's. This is not an extreme version; in fact, I'd describe it as quite mild for the style. But still it is one of the better beers I've had in a very long while.

22oz bottle poured into my Three Floyd's glass. It poured amber orange in color with a frothy, off-white colored head filling the top inch of the glass. Very nice head retention and lacing on the glass as I drank it.

The aroma has a very nice hoppiness to it. I get some juicy, peach and pineapple notes mixing with some sweeter caramel and candied orange flavors. Very appealing aroma to it overall.

The taste shows a little more bitter, citrus rind to it throughout the flavor. I get a little more of the juicy, tropical fruit hoppiness coming out up front, while some of the caramel and candied orange sweetness is there in the finish.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being moderate. Overall I thought it was a great beer. It had a great range of flavors to it and the juicy hoppiness really went well with the caramel and orange sweetness. Very nice beer overall

From 12/04/10 notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a golden amber color with two inches of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, and light pine hops.

t - Tastes of fruity malts, citrus hops, and pine hops. This beer was not bitter or super hoppy, but enjoyable.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

d - A very nice IPA. This isn't a hop bomb or anything but it was still fresh and enjoyable. Would like to have again.

This bottle kicked off the tasting at Brad's on Saturday.

Larry pours dark yellow, is pretty hazy, has a decent sized head and good lacing. Citrus and floral aromas smell very fresh and inviting. The beer is slightly sweet, with nice tart citrus fruits and some herbal/floral notes. The alcohol is hidden very well and this beer is nice and easy to drink. Overall, a very solid brew, and a good example of the style.

It reads like the start of a bad joke. A guy walks into a Beer Garden (To-Go) and walks out with a boatload of CANs for him and his friends. No joke! I was in Media, PA for the annual Brandywine Valley Brewers Fest at Iron Hill and no visit to Media would be complete without a visit to Pinocchio's. I was there early, so I was hanging out, scouring the coolers when they started offering me all kinds of CANs, knowing that I am the originator of The CANQuest (TM) and it would have been rude of me to decline. ;=)

From the CAN: "8.5/85 8.5% Alc/Vol 85 IBUs"; "100% Endlessly Recyclable Aluminum C[AN]; "Pack it In, Pack It Out."

Larry Horwitz of Iron Hill would definitely approve of this review! Larry, Larry, Larry is the ChANt from the crowd as the Crack! takes place, revealing another brimful craft CAN. As I CANducted the inverted Glug, I could not help but recall the stunned looks on people's faces as I demonstrated this unorthodox pour while at The Garage in Philly on Saturday night. Hee hee. The trick is knowing when to back off so as not to have overflow. The pseudo-cascade settled into two dense, rocky fingers of tawny head with great retention. Color was a slightly hazy amber (SRM = > 9, < 13). Nose was very minty on this one, kind of like standing in an evergreen forest in the winter and taking a deep breath. Ahh, get the sensation! Mouthfeel was medium, but the hops bite was like muriatic acid, etching into those weak taste buds and setting them on their heels. One should always be cautious when imbibing a DIPA, but I am a seasoned pro at this. Great lacing began to form around the edges of the glass and I rolled a mouthful around on my tongue in CANtemplation of how I was going to remove it later. Big mistake! Suddenly, the orange/tangerine citrusiness of this one came on full bore and I could not swallow it fast enough. The finish was gaspingly dry, but water was of no help. This fire was white phosphorous, but there was no way to jettison it over the side. Tears began to involuntarily roll down my cheeks as I cried out for my mommy. There was naught to do but press on. Larry, what did I ever do to you to deserve this kind of treatment?!? Each successive draught brought new kinds of pain and I think that I may have seared my esophagus. I CAN now only speak in a hoarse whisper. Great stuff! Drink some Larry in a CAN ... if you dare!

Thanks Slatetank for gifting me with a can of this. Poured into a snifter, the brew appears a clear copper color with white sudsy froth and patchy lace sticking all over the glass.

The aroma is composed of pine, herbs and a grassy sort of cantaloupe or melon feel begore getting floral and fruity as it warms up. This brew's nose is all about the hops in a strange not so unified way but it is unique and enjoyable.

The flavor starts off a little unexpected with toffee malt then blending to bitter pine, pith, grassy notes and a bit of yeast. A sort of melon flavor is midpalate like cantaloupe before getting more fruity and floral towards the finish.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall a decent brew that I appreciate getting the chance to try. Thanks again Matt for the share.

22 oz. bottle poured into two pint glasses (both for me!). Thanks to BennyL1 for this!

Appearance - Pours a light amber color with a big cream-colored head. Retention is good and the surface has been covered with foam for 45 minutes now. Nice.

Smell - Hoppy, but a strange hoppy. It's floral and orange citrusy, but there's a non-malty sweetness there that's hard to place. Just smells slightly sweet in a very light way. There's also a hint of an after-smell that reminds me of my homebrew IPA that I could never quite place.

Taste - Not as hop-forward as the smell. It has more bittering hops than aromatic hops, it seems. The bitterness comes even before the maltiness. The malt just barely peeks through and then fades to a lingering bitterness. Again, there is that strange homebrew flavor that I still can't place. It isn't offensive in this brew, though, as it was in my own creation!

Mouthfeel - This, I feel is remarkable. It's only 7.5% and not sweet. This spells "thin" to me, but the beer has a great body. Not thick, not thin. The body of a heftier IPA without the ABV to make me feel snockered! Good stuff. Also, it seems to have a high amount of carbonation but taste creamy in the finish. I don't get it. Two contradictions in one beer. I love it.

Overall - The smell and taste are just slightly underwhelming, but the craftsmanship is certainly on display. It's very enjoyable and definitely something I would drink regularly if it were available.

12 oz bottle from Candia Rd.
Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge fluffy white head that shows moderate retention. Pine resin and grapefruit mixed with a bready caramel maltiness make up most of the aroma. Moderate hop bitterness with plenty of pine resin and citrus flavor. A bit sweet on the palette with lots of toffee and caramel and a hint of alcohol. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. A touch on the sweet side, but I could drink these.

T - faint bread, big piny resiny hops, grapefruit

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a nice DIPA. It's very intricate but it hits the right notes. There is a very large hop presence that is piny and citrusy. The malt is present and adds balance. This is a good beer worth checking out.
