A: Golden Straw Hue with continuous bubbles from bottom, Extremely Foamy White Head (even after I ate some of it, it headed back up more), Passes Most Light, Good Foamy Lacing. S: Floral, Piney, Mild Citrus T: Floral, Mild Citrus, Mild Malts M: Too Much Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Bitter Overall, a great IPA with a nice taste but way too much carbonation.

Awesome aroma; pungent pine and citrus. Clear golden pour with small to moderate head with some lacing. Very bitter flavor with some light sweetness on the finish to round it out. Tastes like pine and grapefruit finished with some light sweet melon on the finish. Light to medium bodied with an oily texture and suprisingly abrupt finish. This is an excellent top tier IPA of world class caliber.

davey101 (750) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 15, 2013
22 oz. bomber into a snifter. Pours a hazy amber orange color with a finger of sticky white foam. Aroma is just a perfect IPA smell. Light pine, grapefruit, a little resin, bready malts and some chalky citrus rind. Beautiful. Taste is similar with the grapefruit slightly nudging out the pine and malts. Chalky and dry with a moderate bitterness. Crisp and medium bodied. Leaves behind almost no aftertaste. Overall this is a stupidly delicous and drinkable beer. Incredibly impressive!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Hazy orange with goldenrod highlights; cloudy, white head settles nicely and perches on top of the brew, chunky and fat, leaving behind some nice clumps of lacing. Big contributions from both hops in the aroma; nectarine, mango, pineapple, and citrus from the Amarillo, and more wet, dank, pungent pines from the Simcoe. A great, citrusy, oily hemp jungle. Taste follows right along; pine, mango, orange, peach, dank hop oils, papaya, leaves... Nice brash and bitter finish. Only malt is lightly toasted bread and very faint caramel that never gets too sweet. Great backbone. Awesome showcase of hops, here. Not on the same level as Nelson but still a great IPA.

Experiment_Ale (1095) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 On 9/21/14. Freetail mega release. Pours orang with cream head. Aroma is beautiful floral and slightly earthy hops. Taste is the same but not as pungent or good, yet nice. Finish is not too clean. 3.6 On 8/9/14. At Justin’s house warming party. Pours leave golden. Aroma is soft beautiful cat piss hops, grassy, grainy soft notes. Taste is same.

reggiedunlop (3625) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Pours clear gold with a medium white head. aroma has awesome fresh, leafy hoppiness...grassy spice, melon, pear, and stonefruits...glorious. flavor is damn near hop perfection...grapefruit spice, light earthy bitterness, pear, stonefruits, melon...just the perfect amount of pale malt peeking through. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, grapefruity/rindy fresh hoppy finish. wow!! this beer is insane!

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2013 Hoppy deliciousness in my face. Creamy, silky, delicately balanced hop profile defies its Simcoe & Amarillo roots. More East coast than expected; I’ve never liked this so much before, and I was pleasantly surprised. Need more!

dogfish120love (1089) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Pours a somewhat dark orange with a perfectly distributed dense white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma starts off with rather earthy, but turns into a scents of grapefruit/orange zest. There are some definite hints of pine and maybe even a slight hint of tropical fruits. Rather juicy.

tkrjukoff (4274) - SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2013
Pours clear pale amber with a small white headf. Aroma is fruity citric dry slightly malty. Flavor is spot on, lovely stuff, hop forward longlasting flavors on palate with good bitterness.

toxichop (578) - South Gate, California, USA - AUG 29, 2013
S: Lots of fruits on this one, I get mango, pineapple, a hint of grapefruit, some oranges and honey malt. P: A very nice copper look with a thin white head. T: Fruits again, freakin mango, peaches, pineapples, and a hint of bitter grapefruit with almost no malt detected. M: Light, semi-bitterness and finishes lightly crispy with some stickiness. O: I almost forgot how good Alpine is since I havent had anything from them in a while. This is just a softy, fruity hoppy beer.
