2.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From the can, obviously but poured into a tulip. Huge, overwhelming aromas of fresh pine, peaches, citrus pith & spicy hops; you could seriously sniff this all day long and not get bored. Poured a cloudy amber orange with a thin head, that dies to a fine lace. Well, I wasnít expecting this......the taste is just so one dimensional with fresh pine, spicy bitter hops...........and then nothing. No linger, no malt to back it up, no hint of sweetness, nothing, nada, zilch. There is just no finish!! Itís like drinking a stripped wine. I just donít know what all the hype is about.....oh wait, I do......itís just hype and everyone is on this train.

(can) The grand finally celebrating 1883 ELCO 30th HS reunion at the Porch in Myerstown. Drank straight from the can by the recommendation of bartender. Letís not get too serious. Itís beer, Itís fun. Ultra smooth for this IBU. Even a novice can appreciate the quality of this fine ultra- hoppy IPA. The high ABV is well disguised.

liked it but not sure why rating is this high? aroma of slight barnyard funk. nice pour; med -thick palate. less hops than others in this style - which isnít a negative, but not much really stood out?

Hazy golden amber color. Frothy white head. Clean, slightly sweet malty back bone. Quit a bit of marijuana. Highly drinkable, moderately hoppy very drinkable. So well executed. Slightly off center to the smallest degree.

Zeebra Extreme Beer Festival - Served from a can! Hazy, dark yellow colour. Has a nice ígreení, fresh hop aroma. The carbonation is fine lending to a smooth, creamy feel. Low on sweetness and itís bitterness is not overpowering.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 Bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange with beautiful white head. Aroma of grapefruit, oranges with hints of malty sweetness. Taste is strong bitterness balanced by stunning citrusy sweetness - incredibly juicy. Mouthfeel is notably full. Among the best beers Iíve tasted.
