ACHops (761) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2013
On tap @ Uber. Pours bright golden with thick creamy head. Aroma is juicy floral hops. Taste is kinda flat piney and floral bitter hops. None of those great citrus notes in the aroma come through in the taste at all - weird! Thin body to stand up to all those hops. Itís been a while but I remember liking their Pilot series DIPA better than this. Something just a bit off here.

Citrus, caramel, lightly toasted malts and oranges round out the flavour. Crisp pine and resin finish. Moderate hop bitterness. Creamy and medium bodied.

fiulijn (15371) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Downtown Spirits, Seattle
Beautiful amber color, bright and clean, with medium sized compact head. Mild aroma of resiny hops and caramelly malt. Good body strength; the flavor is essentially based o malt and caramel, with a touch of cereals; itís lean, with just a bit of sweetness, so it doesnít get cloying; the hops are not very bright, but they still carry a good degree of bitterness and some hop resins; bitter orange peel in the final.
Not vibrant, but a solid brew.

thegreenrooster (3310) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Pour is a dark amber with a small white head. Aroma is piney hop and very bready. Flavor is more of the piney hop and also a very heavy and chewy malt. A slight alcohol burn also emerges after the swallow. This was just ok. Not enough of the hops and a way too heavy malt bill make this slightly above average.

MrBunn (2511) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a coppery orange with a thin head and delicious aromas of papaya, oranges, a little pine and toffee. Flavor loses a little of the distinction that comes through in the nose, though and the thing ends up as a well balanced DIPA without a direction to the hops. The bitterness is just that... bitterness, but not distinctly tropical or citrus or any other path I can follow. That said, it has a nice zing to it and things balance out very nicely.

malrubius (1865) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine. Clear copper with lasting head and lace. Piney resiny fruity bready aroma. Very fruity sweet with very piney assertive bitterness and fruity finish. An odd combo. Medium full body. Good.

PhilJackson80 (380) - Oklahoma, USA - NOV 16, 2014
12 oz Bottle. Tasted on 11/16/14. Beer from Total Wine Lewisville, TX. The aroma had pine, resin, biscuits & some light citrus. The taste had mainly pine & biscuits. The flavor was good but nothing special. Easy to drink but not that great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First time trying this beer, and rating a beer here on RateBeer, too! This IPA poured a little cloudy, but has a nice golden amber color. It rose to a nice 2 finger head and has some lacing. The nose picks up a lot of notes Iím partial to: pine, citrus, and an almost floral sweet note. This beer tastes just like it smells, with pine and citrus in the forefront, then it has a long finish, when the bready malt flavors come to play. It finishes dry, and is not bitter. I drink a lot of high abv beers, so the alcohol content didnít put me off at all, itís not too bad for an 8.5 abv brew. Iíd buy again, as itís a seasonal offering. Cheers!

Bottle: Amber color with two fingers of sandy head. Lots of thick sheet lacing. Nose is hop forward and sweet; citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. Hop flavors a huge without excessive bitterness. Citrus and pine, lightly sweet. A sense of the ABV on the backend reminds me that this is 8.5%, but it is hidden for the most part. Picking up a little bready malt in the tail as it warms. Nice offering by ABC.
