    Pours hazy light orange with off white head and dirty lacing. This beer is so tasty I just want to chuggle it down. Sweet floral and herbal aroma. Sweet malt start and hop bitterness at the end with masses of great flavours in-between. Smooth medium/full resinous mouthfeel. Too good not to have another.

    A deep, bright orange colored beer with a big sudsy textured white head rising above. There's great hang time on the head. Settles into a moderate ringlet and persistent cap. Strong pine-floral hoppiness in the nose. More of the same with a well balanced bready malt. Full bodied and resin-slick on the tongue.

    Pours out clear gold color with a thin white head. The aroma refreshing smelling of citrus. Now is where my rating becomes unfair because I don't like IPA style beer. It is so bitter that I can't enjoy any part of this beer. I had three drinks of it and just poured it out. I just don't understand how people enjoy this style.

    A deep golden colored body topped with with a thin white head that leaves some occasional lace on the glass. Juicy, tropical aroma, with citric grapefruit, bready malt, caramel. Bready, sweet, caramel malt backbone can't stand up to the bitter, pungent hop bitterness of grapefruit, mango, and pine. Juicy and sweet, a bit hot. Medium body, resinous hop, lingering bitter finish.

    I sampled this while out with friends. None of them particularly care for the style, but I made everyone smell it anyway and a couple tasted it, too. Holding it to the light, it was a lovely yellow gold, served without a head. Great aromas of sweet grapefruit and mango. The flavor has an underlying sweetness, but it still has sound IPA bitter. For me, it was like drinking a lovely grapefruit juice, bitter without too much bite: neither extremely bitter nor extremely sweet. Tiny bubbles. I really enjoyed this one.

    Pours dark yellow with a low low white head. Tons of pine in the nose. Nice touch of citrusy sour for balance. Not overly sweet. Not so hopped that it trashes your mouth. Nicely done.

    This poured a bright yellow color with very little head, why I’m dinging it some appearance points. Now to quit being a nit picker and say the aroma is like being attacked by a christmas tree! Pine and more pine with a strong lemon and grapefruit presence. The flavor is bitter as expected with tons of pine. This one is not in the well balance category it is straight up hops and bitterness. Overall a little one dimensional but a very good beer.

    Pours a hazy, semi-transparent golden with an average white head. Strongly hoppy aroma has a hint of evergreen. Powerful hoppy flavor has firm tones of evergreen and grapefruit, quite sour. Lively, fizzy texture has firm body and is quite pleasing.

    An exquisite example of the style, based I believe on the Centennial IPA. Great colour and aroma give way to a great flavour. Sadly I don't see it often enough.

    Kind of pale compared to most DIPA's I've had and I really like the color of other ones. Scent is very fragrant and fruity. Good strong hop kick on the front, malty body, and a nice bitter aftertaste. Definitely has a great taste and is something I'll drink again.
