Christpuncher (1573) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Extremely hoppy start with some pine and slight citrus flavor. Strong alcohol bite on this one. Pours deep orange with a tech white head. Had a bottle pour at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Forgot to rate this, but remember it being a nice almost double IPA that was nicely balanced but didn’t have anything that wowed. Will try again when i get the chance and re-rate.

Beermack (687) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 23, 2014
Pint at Ginger Man Austin. Hazy gold amber, good solid white head. Pine nose, blood orange and pithy stuff happening. Taste gives good resin and needle pine mix, light caramel, some spruce, deeper orange notes, grapefruit kick. Fairly juicy orange finish. Pithy and pine bitterness. Booze well integrated. Yeah, decent.

Gription79 (2393) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to Ed. The aroma is citrusy, pine, floral, American Hop dominated, there is a slight caramel malty note. The caramel is more noticeable in the flavor, citrusy hops and pine notes as well.

Ericular (716) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Sampled at Northgate Tasting. Meh... not much aroma. Mediocre taste. I expect more from this style, this ABV, and even this brewery.

TheShaunsie (2) - - OCT 20, 2014 does not count
Orange/Bronze in color, head quick to dissapate. Loads of pine, resin in aroma. Slight orange as well. Lighter body than appearance would suggest, pine bitterness throughout. Finishes kind of soapy. Not very complex hop profile, but solid IPA.

RedSox2004 (1377) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Orange amber colour with a two-finger bright white head and very nice lace. Bright hoppy citrus aroma. Gentle hop bitterness with a nice offsetting caramel sweetness. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation and a crisp clean finish.

J_man (751) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Heavy, dank aroma with noticeable sweetness. Crystal clear copper with a foamy off-white head. Lots of sweet caramel malt and bitter, earthy hops hit at the same time. The alcohol comes up behind this but doesn’t really have much of a bite. Full bodied and smooth creamy texture. Seems to be more like what a British DIPA would be given the strong malt character and earthy bitterness without a bite.

bwa5879 (759) - Portage, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Jello-y amber pour with half inch of white head. Juicy almost syrupy citrus aroma, simple but pungent. Soft carbonation, syrupy but tingly mouthfeel, clean finish that’s a little numbing. Light piney and citrusy hop taste, biscuity malt backbone, slightly tropical pineapple, papaya, and coconut toward the finish. Nice, light, DIPA that hides its ABV well.
