Bottle pour to shaker. Hazy brown-gold with a medium head. Citrus aroma. Nicely balanced hoppiness with something giving it an edginess...pine? straw? I bought a single to sample. Next trip to the store I will buy a 6-pack.

rdixon77 (2328) - Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Forgettable, but fine IPA. Heavy grapefruit and pine. Pretty big and malty and caramel. Almost a double. Probably suffered a bit that I drank it after ninja v unicorn.

On cask at Slows BBQ pours a hazy orange with some creamy, white head. Nose has honey, grist, orange juice, pine. Flavor is sweet with OJ and honey and grist, mild soap, lemon-lime soda. Sticky finish.

cheap (5307) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle, with a big fresh IPA perfumy aroma. Quite strong kick in the mouth with all its bitter IPA charming personality. Yes, let’s think about chewing on green grapefruit rind and then washing it down with a little turpentine and pine tree sap. So terribly on rude style it approaches double imperial IPA territory, wewwie. Will somebody please get me a macro lager to wash this down with?

mambossa (289) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Possibly an older bottle. Pours a murky apple cider tone with a substantial and lasting head. Nose of mineral yeast, caramel malt, apricot, honey, and faded hops. Flavor has some gently toasted malt, dried apricot, yellow raisin, rind bitterness. I must admit, imagining it as a fresh bottle, it has a very sturdy malt presence to uphold the hops. Yet in this bottle, it seems so faded. The familiar metallic yeasty nose of an old beer wafts ignonimously from the glass and to your palate. It’s a shame I waited so long to try it. I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt.

phaleslu (9380) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 29, 2016
12 oz. bottle from DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a hazy reddish orange amber with a small off-white head that settles into a ring and spotty film. Notes of caramel, brown sugar, toast, straw, grass, muddled fruits, earth - not much in the way of hops. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, dry, oxidized mouthfeel. Drinks like an old amber ale.

Turboninja (493) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Strong pungent aroma with slightly overaged fruits and berries. Deep orange/copper color with small/medium natural white head and hazy liquid. Medium bit bitter taste with slightly overaged fruits and berries. Unbalanced. Narrow/medium taste spectrum and long, hoppy aftertaste with earthy flavors of fruits. Medium/light body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, organic but messy product where the aroma promised much more.

drfabulous (6571) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 31, 2015
12 ounce bottle thanks to Donnie. Dark pour for IPA. Another fruity caramel bomb. Not my thing with IPAs. And not West Coast, for sure.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Pours an orangish amber with a medium white head. Bright, citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Flavor is a rich expression of hop fruitiness. Grapefruit, citrus rind, and tropical fruit. Medium honey and bread malt. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. On tap, this is unbelievable. Wonderful IPA.
