mverity (249) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Clear gold color with a touch of orange. White head that faded rapidly into a thin collar and wisps. Aroma is faint citrus, grainy malt sweetness, slightly piney. Nice hop bitterness, medium-high carbonation, medium-low body. Taste is grainy malt, grassy/floral hop and grapefruit citrus, very faint spice.

HIGHB4LL (269) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2014
On tap at Avery Strong Ale Festival. Appearance: finger of white head, orange color, clear. Aroma: floral, orange peel, light caramel notes. Palate: light-medium body, bitter lasting finish, average carbonation. Taste: light sweetness up front with building and building hoppy bitterness at the end. Overall, this beer is over the top hoppy, the bitterness is definitely the defining thing to this beer, balance is slightly underdone.

tdoyledesign (154) - Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle was several months past its enjoy by date. Unfortunate because the citrus and pine was too muted. Plan to rate again later. Still awesome. Poured a great golden orange with a medium head that lingered. Aroma was mostly malts. Flavor and palate were mostly malt forward with some caramel in the back. Very warm, full DIPA. Can only imagine how delicious it would be with the expected citrus.

xBEERxNOLA (54) - - FEB 22, 2014
Appearance - golden orange. Finger head. Aroma - medium hop aroma. Very mild. Mouth - medium carb. Dry. Taste - high gravity. Odd hop flavor for me. Being a huge fan of sculpin it's just not in the same family to me. Hoppy hit up front with a bitter finish. Long lingering aftertaste. Overall - better than others but not in the same league as their other offerings.

bnielsen13 (219) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours orange with a light white head. Aroma is citrus, spicey, very hoppy, and caramel malt. Flavor is citrus, some grassy and piney hops, and sweet malt. Very nice.

b33r (635) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Draft- Bright gold cloudy orange with small white head and nice lacing. Aroma and flavor are both a bit weak, with earthy grassy hops and toasty malts. Little citrus as the description states which is disappointing, but okay overall
