alassio (78) - USA - JAN 30, 2014
In comparison to other citrus/pine mega-IPAís (e.g., Hopslam, Hoptimum) this one clocks in real nice with huge rich hoppiness, syrupy richness, but also dryness. It has no cloying sweet to muck it up. In fact, it is almost tart, and the different aspects wind up with all sorts of definition: fresh & zesty; spring woodland hoppy; bitingly alive. This is a stunning beer, but it is big, big, big, and bracing too.

ARH (749) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is a bright, citrus sweetness with a floral grassiness. The beer is lightly hazy and amber colored with a whipped, off-white/eggshell head that has an abundant retention and a good lace. The beer is a medium high bitter with a medium sweet thatís slightly more up-front bitter and a sweet finish. The beer is smooth and syrupy with a creamy carbonation and a medium body that hits the palate with toast and marmalade flavors as well as some grass. The finish is zesty and grassy with a slightly burnt note that strentghens as it warms, along with a bitter citrus that blends into the aftertaste thatís floral with a sweet tangerine hint.

dlihcsnatas (414) - Texas, USA - APR 17, 2015
Light amber with decent head. Smells of floral hops and something bit pungent. There is an odd bitterness to this one that doesnít make it too appealing but it is drinkable non the less. So yes it does have a good ABV it also has a high price tag that makes me say no to getting more.

b3shine (6270) - Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2015
Draft to pint. Looks solid; a transparent paler burnt orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells like a bitter malt bomb. Tastes malty, but the hop profile is fruitier. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full-bodied. Not bad, and tastes better than it smells.

Great beer for almost anyone, even if you don't like IPA's have introduced many to this beer and many have said its one of their favorites. Problem is it is a harder beer to find but well worth it because it is a gem. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (6600) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 4, 2015
not a bad price for the style but still more than a normal 6-pack beer without being any better. Crisp hoppy aroma but also a little biscuit, which I donít like. Iíd say above average beer, below average IIPA.

umich03jm (2503) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle. Clear copper pour with a small foamy head that fades to a nice film and ring. Aroma is caramel malt and stale, grassy hops. Tastes the same. Light malty sweetness and moderate bitterness. Tastes like noble hops but not fresh. Possibly old bottle? Canít more than a couple months. Boring DIPA.

dyetube (1264) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from Mellow Mushroom. Pours a rich copper color with a thin white head leaving some good lacing down the sides. The aromas are citrus, pine, resin. The mouthfeel is dry , bitter and has a medium body with good carbonation. Cheers!

BeerandBlues2 (10542) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Tap at Slaterís 50/50 - San Marcos. Pours clear copper with a large, creamy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is resin, pine, and citrus hops with honey malt and pear esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, sweet malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

I was expecting a heavy hitter. Not really tasting the hoppiness. Itís a pretty tame IPA considering itís name.

Piney hops control the nose. Beautiful dark amber pour with a thin white head. Bitter grapefruit and caramelized sugar compete for your taste buds. Palate is medium bodied. Overall, a wonderful double. This will definitely be in the fridge in the future.
