Received a bomber as a Christmas gift. I have seen a bunch of this at my local beer store and have passed it up. I won't anymore. This is an excellent IPA. Reminds me of Stone Ruination. It may even be better. I added this to my short list of favorites. If you like IPAs, this is a must try. You will not be disappointed...... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amarelo dourado, boa espuma, brilhante. Aroma de lúpulo cítrico, abacaxi, resinoso, pinho. Corpo médio-alto, boa carbonatação. Amargor alto, persistente. Final seco, aquecedor, alcoólico. Boa cerva!

01.23.15 best by. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 09.17.14. A: Orange and lemon. A: 2 1/2 finger head that is retained well. Cloudy orange/yellow body. T: Orange and lemon dominate. Hop resin, graham cracker, and grass are subtle. P: Crisp and smooth. Good carbonation. O: This is definitely a West Coast IPA. It’s very fruity and smooth. Very nice.

Pours golden with some sediment in the bottle. Strong citrus, floral aroma. Lots of citrus and floral hops. Very nice IPA!

Bottled (in a shaker) at Spritzenhaus. Pours orange hazy color. Aroma is mango, lemon, orange peel, malt. Balanced. Flavor is orange peel, lemon. Hop bitterness. Good but would be better in a proper glass or on tap.

Well-crafted really good IPA. Lack of unique hops and a poor lingering palate hold this from excellence. Still, it is highly drinkable and enough complexity to make this an A-/A beer. Bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (1806) - FINLAND - JAN 1, 2015
An orange beer with a quite weak and blond head. The nose has tropical fruits, mangos and papaiyas, some grapefruits. Taste has grapefruits, some pine needles, slightly tropical. The bitterness is quite strong and it stays in the mouth quite long time as a piney. Only balancing sweetness. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. This is great IPA.

At a pho place with only bud on tap, saw this in the cooler. Not as bitter as other iPas but great hop taste. Bright and cloudy appearance.

Bottle at home from States. Spruce, pine citrus, pineapple peach. Lovely caramel thick malts with a mild bitterness. Tropical fruit finish. Lovely

I’ve had this several times in bottles. I guess the label put me off because I passed this one by many times until the reviews made me have a taste. Fault free pour, nice head. Aroma of C hops, nice taste balanced between light malt and bitter, citrus flavors. Easy to drink and not notice the alcohol. Quite a nice beer.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with thin head but lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus and resin. Malty and resin Hopson palate.
