liquidhedonism (92) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2014
22 oz bottle from Albertsonís in Hillsboro, OR. Pours with a short-lived, rocky head and minimal lacing. Aroma is grassy and piney, with hints of hay and leaves. Mouthfeel and taste is crisp, sweet, and bitter from the start through to a long finish and aftertaste. The beer feels a bit thin, but it masks the alcohol incredibly well. Pretty fantastic!

dyan (30) - Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Bottled 9/11/14 consumed 10/7/14. Pouring a mildly hazy light orange with a dense, white head with good retention and lacing, this looks great. The nose is solid. Bright, pithy, zesty grapefruit with a mild grassy note. Bitterness is quite pronounced. Lemon oil, a little pine, a mild honey note are all present. Malt character is minimal. The palate opens other a bog,whopping bitterness, pungent, resiny, grassy and with a blend of grapefruit, orange, citrons and lemon verbena. Oily on the mid palate with mild flavors of honey, white bread and tutti fruitti. Light in body with a long lasting bitter finish with plenty of grapefruit and pine,this beer is moderately carbonated and quite excellent on the palate. Apart from the grassy notes, this is an excellent beer.

UXO (261) - CANADA - OCT 1, 2014
Pours hazy pale gold with a fat finger of loose off-white head diminishing rapidly to a thick cap, moderate lacing. Nose is moderately intense citrus, piney, and herbal hops balanced with pale malt. Taste starts moderately sweet, giving way to moderately intense bitter. Medium body with low sustained carbonation and a long dry bitter finish. Iím not sure if I entirely like Columbus hops in a DIPA. For me, the herbal aspect reduces the overall impact of the hops and makes this feel like itís not quite the 103 IBU hop bomb it might otherwise be. It sort of leaves the door open for the malt to have a greater presence on the nose and the tongue, edging into the malty DIPA territory I donít prefer. I donít dislike this beer, and itís quite drinkable, but a better hop blend might make it more memorable.

slowrunner77 (5804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Good dank piney aroma has hints of grapefruit peel as well. Pretty good IIPA, though itís a crowded field. Each aspect is solid, but nothing REALLY stands out."

kaser (2791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Orange and bitter. Draft at apex. Tons of frothy head. Too bitter. Fruity. Would have again but not great next to the beers we are drinking

Masterkush7 (550) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2014
Almost opaque orange amber, frothy white foam head mostly settles. Hoppy citrus herbal floral evergreen aroma. Citrus fruity hop forward taste, some pine, solid malts, light caramel, grapefruit takes over. Average carbonation, medium bodied, more aggressively hopped. Finishes clean dry and bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
