In comparison to other citrus/pine mega-IPA’s (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.

I was expecting a heavy hitter. Not really tasting the hoppiness. It’s a pretty tame IPA considering it’s 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.

DrinkyCrow (61) - Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Copper color. Not much aroma. Bitter, malty, not a lot of hop flavor for something with "hop" in its name. Just okay for a double IPA.

Great amount of hops. Kind of surprises you at first with the kick it’s got. Good one beer buzz and a must have for any IPA enthusiast.

twindadplus2 (619) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Copper amber color with a small, creamy off white head. Aroma of orange peels and herbal hops. Taste is tart citrus with a touch of bready malt and bitter resiny hops that fade into a long medicinal finish. In the high side of medium bodied but with a pretty lively carbonation. It’s a pretty good IPA

2/11/15 nice piney aroma. Copper colored. A bit too much bitter aftertaste for me. Can definitely taste the alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silphium (3186) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle. Clearish caramel orange-brown body, thin off-white/cream head. Bitter, lots of candied citrus peel and citrus resins; berries, toast, caramel. Complex and rich. Very good.

iguanodon (89) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 1, 2015

jcr (2263) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle. Deep golden/amber body, white head. Aroma of resin, pine sap, dough, caramel. Hints of orange, citrus, alcohol. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Nice balance of sweet and bitter, but overall standard resin and pine ipa.
