Cakes (400) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2011
Has a nice rich orange w/ frothy white head. Citrus and lemongrass w/ a hint of copper in the nose. Medium bodied w/ slight stickiness, but no real malt balance. Rather harsh, with a bitter snap.

KeefOz (1155) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2015
Poured a clouded amber colour with a big frothy off-white head that over-flowed the 20cm glass and then went an unappealing sudsy look. Lacing poor. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma of subtle citrus and a hint of malt. Taste no real flavour, just a bitter aftertaste with the alcohol showing through. Light body. Alcohol burns on the back palate. Very poor.

Pours hazy golden with good head from a bomber. Smell is wonderful and bit on the strong side. Drinks little heavier than some with good solid flavor and finishes hoppy and medium bitterness. Like it.

Crystal clear orange with pure white head and great bubbles. Hoppy grassy aroma. Flavor and taste of hops and pine and lighter side of malts. Very very good beer.

Hopmaestro (662) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2015
Aroma is mature malt, peachy and sexy hops with grapefruit. Taste is a bit maltier than I expected, but the hops come along nicely and sort of drag out all the juice in this one. Long and lingering bitterness. Superb IPA.

coachd (341) - Missouri, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Aroma is outstanding. Grapefruit and tangerine zest, slight pine needles and some malt sweetness, but the hops still get to be the star. Hazy light orange color with a snow white fluffy head that lingers for a long time and leaves a lot of lacing. The taste hits you with a surprising amount of sweetness, but that only lasts for a moment. After that, you get a sharp rush of pine and citrus hop bitterness that fades away just in time for you to take another sip. Very refreshing and very well done. Great full palate; one of the only IPAs I have had that coats the mouth. Excellent IPA. How could anyone not like this beer?

Pours a nice thick head with a malty nose. Great body body with a hoppy malt finish. A great brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rollinsr (504) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUL 9, 2015
Pours clear light Amber with a finger of creamy white head. Aroma is sweet and pungent starburst citrus. Flavor is clean and crisp but slightly muted, which is definitely not a bad thing. There is a lot of complexity packed into a very quick punch that simply invites the drinker to keep drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
