Hazy orangey yellow color with a nice white head. Big citrus hops, grapefruit, malty, and a mild floral aroma. Hops and citrus bitterness, mild sweetness, malty flavor. Big IPA but not to heavy. Nice!

Sampled at a Halloween party. Thanks Shep. Cool looking can. A big hop blast here that was vegetable, pine, grapefruit, and citrus. A nice malt base definitely holds its own with the hops. A big beer and it brings a lot.

16 oz can. Bottled on 09/17/14. (Grape & Gourmet) Virginia Beach,
Clear dark amber colour with a small off-white head.
Sweet malt, cookies and mild hops in the aroma.
The flavour is very bitter, resiny and grapefruity hoppy and alcoholic. Harsh one. Bitterness stays.

Can pours a clear orange with some creamy, white head. Nose has a lot of orange peel and pine, some candy, some soap. Flavor is sweet, candy, honey, orange, pine, soap, a little herbal. Full bodied, bitter finish. Finishes a little tannic too.

Reviewed from notes. Thank you, Haley for the can.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a slightly hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute, light speckled lacing stuck around the glass nicely.
The smell started off with a big blast of grapefruit, orange peel and pine that led to a somewhat resinous behavior to the aroma.
The taste took the citrus flavors to town and amplified the pine a bit.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a slick resinous aftertaste that led to the same kind of finish.
Overall, this was a very good offering that I wouldn’t mind having again.

A little muddled, especially the flavor, but fairly pleasant overall. Big n sticky, but nothing to really grab your attention besides some bitter geapefruit. OK.
