Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours a nice hazy hazy copper color with an offwhite foamy head that lasts a good long while. Aroma is heavy on the hops of citrus, pine, orange and honey. Flavor is not very bitter initially but turns into a nice long lasting bitter ont he back end with notes of citrus and pine throughout. Mouthfeel is average, carbonation is decent. Overall this is an alright beer.

pours hazy bright golden, red tint, with a creamy off-white head, good retention and lacing. citrus and pine - floor cleaner-like, grapefruit, melons, dill and mint - kind of awkward spicy notes, grass and weed, doughy and spicy fruitiness, dense and sweet - oranges too, booze - tingling. moderately carbonation, medium body - oily and a bit sticky, harsh spicy-citrusy-piney finish. blah.

In growler from Hopcat. Wow. Really fresh and strong hop taste. Maybe a bit too hoppy for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJester (1873) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
12 oz bottle. Copper-brown with a lovely, medium, off-white head that sticks around for the duration. Nice lacing as well. Pine and semi-sweet citrus dominate the nose. A little caramel underneath. Not overpowering, by any means, but appealing. The flavour doesn’t vary from this much, although the malt comes up a bit to provide more balance. Nice body. Simple, but solid IIPA.

From a 12 oz bottle shared while Airstreaming across Canada. Pours a hazy dark copper with a thick ecru head. Grassy nose. Flavors of resin, pine nuts and caramel malts. Smooth, mildly bitter finish.

I can’t get over how beautiful the head is. It’s two-toned, between a dense, off-white color and a more frothy, medium brown. Even the lacing, which is so thick that it reminds me of frothed eggs stuck to the side of a poaching pan, has moments of white and others of brown. The color and frothiness reminds me of one of those foam mattress covers. Underneath that strong, long-lasting head lives a bold, deep burnt orange colored ale that appears to be bursting with douhy sweetness. The nose is soft, and although sweet not as sweet as I expected, with a slightly citrusy hop character that really reaches up into your sinuses. The beer is wickedly smooth in the mouth, almost creamy, but more porous. The beer looks like it’s loaded with residual sugars, but it’s really kept well under control. It could be that this beer is nearly a year old now, and for that accident I am grateful. It’s earthy in the mouth, with flavors of rustic grains and husks present throughout. There’s a nice bitterness that really only shows its face in the finish, and even then it inherits a blunt smoothness from the distinctive body.

tmongoose (1301) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 11, 2014
12oz bottle shared pours a medium to dark copper color with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is creamy malty goodness with some pine and citrus hops. The flavor is full bodied rich texture in the maltiness. The pine and orange/citrus is quite flavorful. Overall solid beer very drinkable and not overly bitter for the amount of hops.
