Poured a cloudy honey color with one fingers worth of head that cleared to the edges of the glass. Smell is spicy, piney, and citrusy. The flavor starts off with a good amount of bite from the bitterness as you get pine followed by a little bit of biscuit before the citrus comes through strongly. The feeling is medium as it has a good amount of carbonation. This is an excellent Double IPA! I'm glad they scaled up this home brew without changing it.

On a second tatsing I was waiting to see if my taste had changed since the first time I tried this one, almost two year ago and most of all 800+ beers tasted ago and well, I still love this beer.

It pours a golden to amber colour with a three fingers head.
Caramel, resin, grapefruit, kumquat are very nicely present in both aroma and flavour. Some herbal and licorice notes are present in the taste too. The balance and the drinkability of the beer are great.
A wonderfuly well craft DIPA.

Smells sweet heaven, like ripe grapefruit. A cloudy, slightly-bigger-than-one finger head. Tastes just the right amount of malt and hops for me, where yeast and pine dominates and a slight citrus lingers with the alcohol being just enough noticeable; very balanced. One of the better ales I've had and the best DIPA I've tried.

Pours a cloudy, maize color. One inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of floral hops, citrus hops, yeast, slight grass, slight alcohol, and a hint of pine. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong citrus hops, floral hops, slight pine, hint of sweet malt, alcohol, hint of grass, and slight yeast. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, blend, complexity, and feel.

This is a honey-colored, slightly hazy liquid, with a tall off-white head. The aroma is grainy, backed with grassy hops and a hint of tropical fruit. There is also a bit of spice, and an odd, almost sour note. The taste is semi-sweet with plenty of warming qualities. Lots of hop flavor as well. Full in body. This is an interesting, but very dangerous brew.

L - cloudy honey, two finger head, good retention, lots of lacing

S - maltier than I would like, but nice floral and grapefruit notes as well

T - maltier and more bitter than most American DIPAs, with some citrus pith and lots of pine

F - medium carbonation, a bit oily feeling, the ABV is noticeable but not over the top

O - a huge and well-balanced beer of the old-school kind, kind of like Stone Ruination 1.0

Pours a very hazy golden orange color with over a finger of an off-white head.

Aroma is definitely suggests that this one has some age on it. I do get a good amount of sweet orange (like orange marmalade), some pine, grass, and lots of herbal (tea-like) notes from the hops; however, there is a significant amount of a bready and sweet, sugary malt too.

Taste starts with lots of bready malt and carmel sweetness, along with some light orange and herbal notes. The orange note becomes stronger into the middle and takes on an orange marmalade flavor to go with more herbal notes and sweet bready malt. Finish dries out the beer nicely and brings with it lots of pine resin bitterness and sweet orange.

Medium body. Smooth carbonation and creamy. An oily and sticky finish.

Although this one undeniably has some age on it, I cannot hold that against them being overseas. Despite the age, this one has some nice hop flavors and is balanced wonderfully. I can tell that a fresh version of this would be awesome.
