fidemaster (286) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2012
This was the last of the trolley beers we tried. Yuck... I was shocked it had a high rating so I tried another bottle but this was awful. Its like when you get a grapefruit and its not tart but spoiled. With a taste of the rind leaving you desperate to get that awful taste out of your mouth.

bhensonb (12150) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle from a Grocery Outlet. Pours copper with a beige head. Aroma is light caramel with some hop, and something that hints of cola. Med body or nearly. Flavor is somewhat roasty malt with something suggesting spicy hop and earth. Actually it would be drinkable, if there wasn’t something likely to be much more enjoyable available.

Tognetta (218) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAY 18, 2015
Âmbar, espuma de fácil formação, mas pouca duração. Aroma caramelizado, floral, menos intenso que a maioria das IPAs, levemente amadeirada. Paladar mais intenso no dulçor do que amargor, que aliás ficou devendo. Corpo leve, carbonação média. Aftertaste leve, não muito marcante, tendendo para o caramelizado/amadeirado. Apesar de não ter muitas características de uma IPA, é uma cerveja fácil de beber, vale experimentar. Nota geral 8 por ter fugido muito do estilo.

marcus (7311) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours orange amber with a modest off-white head and almost no aroma. There is a sort of rancid pale malt flavor with a little hop bitterness.

bb (7306) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Amber beer with a dark cream had. Malt and light citrus aroma. Caramel and citrus flavor with grain and light pine. Medium bodied. Decent bitterness. Grain and grapefruit linger with pine.

Satyroneto (202) - BRAZIL - MAR 17, 2015
Cor de ouro envelhecido levemente turva; espuma branca com tons amarelados de média formação e alta persistência com excelente lacing. Aroma floral e de caramelo; Sabor de caramelo queimado com final amargo assertivo e retrogosto adstringente. Corpo e carbonatação médios.

PigMine (42) - San Angelo, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2015
The best part of this brew is the look. It has a nice solution of small, suspended particulate, showing a pretty, orange color. The aroma and taste are a bit similar to a watered-down Sierra Nevada pale ale. It’s not the worst IPA, and better than it has been given credit for, but it is still a third party IPA and kind of defies the craft brew tradition of small-scale, owner/brewed beer. Even though it is a good looking and decently drinkable beer, I would not buy this again, especially after discovering it is a contract brew.

jredmond (6071) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Blipp at Max’s. Thanks a lot for this garbage, man. Pours a decent golden body with soft white lacing - no indication of the palate brutality about to ensue. Aroma begins to suggest a putrid fruit flavor mixed with a strange sour/spoiled fruity character; some spice and grain as well - is that the hop profile? Mouthfeel confirms what the nose suggests - awful weird fake fruit, cleaner, chemical spicy flavor and bland malt character. Offensive.

blipp (6722) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Toasted and lightly sweet malts, with very low hoppy bitterness and weird earthy notes. Pretty brutal.

Bottle, orange pour, white head, nose is hoppy, taste is hoppy, lots of caramel in this bad boy

Leighton (13583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle shared in New Jersey - huge thanks to Blipp. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. The aroma holds some bready malts, berries, hints of caramel. Medium sweet flavor with grainy bread, slight metal, toasted pine, more berries, orange rind. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes sweet with some piney hops, dry caramel, grainy bread, grass, slight metallic notes. So so.
