LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Appearance: Pours a very clear amber gold with visibile rising bubbles in the body. A pin stripe of white goes around the top.

Aroma: A bouquet of piney, grassy and perfume hop oil off the bat. Sweet malt and fruitiness.

Taste: A sandwich of agressive resinous hops, sweet and biscuity malt and fruit cocktail in the middle, with a long sturdy bitter finish. Maybe some rye malt as well?

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, medium peppery carbonation.

Overall: Solid and beautifully bitter. Not my kind of IPA, but still satisfying as it is.

BucannonXC5 (829) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Boulevard Ales pint glass From: Trader Joe’s in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C. Price: $1.67 (I think) Purchased: July 26, 2014 Consumed: July 26, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a dark caramel, murky color with three fingers of khaki white head. Lots of layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down. Smelled earthy rye malts, caramel, toffee, lemon, citrus, tangerine and some unknown spices. Tasted earthy rye hops, caramel, orange rind, lemon, citrus and slight dried apricot. Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long finish. A pretty good earthy imperial IPA. A couple of my ratings probably could have been a bit higher.

rbrazell (1634) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Cask conditioned at Kudu. Glowing deep orange pour with a thick white head. Big tropical citrus hops on the nose, apricots and peaches with bready malt backing. Flavor is similar with that sticky hop character finishing it. Not too shabby.

ARH (378) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is a faint, but present, orange creamsicle note with a syrupy caramel and a bit of grass. It pours a foggy orange copper color with a big, dense, off-white, rocky head. Good retention as a puffy surface coating is left behind as well as an abundant, messy and puffy lacing along the glass. The taste lies on the higher end of medium for both bitterness and sweetness - the bitterness stands out a bit more. Lots of fuzzy carbonation greet the palate with a slick texture and a full, resin, grass, and grapefruit body. Some of the orange creamsicle comes back in the finish with grapefruit membrane, grass, and some caramel malt. The dry, grassy and resin aftertaste lingers.

Very nice IPA wit lots of nose, plenty of aromatic ops, fresh and clean. Only modest head and no lacing.

Cybercat (3281) - Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with a nice pale tan head. Hoppy aroma has a firm underpinning of sour orange. Flavor has a bold hoppy core that supports hay and citrus notes, and is only slightly bitter. Texture is firm, fizzy and lively. Go ahead, take a chance with it!

scotchzombie (326) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours a hazy and familiar orange amber color with a nice off-white head that laces well and settles to a rich coating. Aroma is a nice sweet and resiny floral caramel fruit berry citrus. Taste is smooth with orange and grapefruit citrus upfront, followed by a dry hop bitterness on the back. It's the bitterness that hangs with you in the aftertaste. This is a straight up solid and sessionable AIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11/28/13. 12oz bottle snagged before I left Asheville. Hazy light amber orange with a small khaki head that I had to force and it’s gone fast. Mild aroma, earthy hops, dark sugars, mehhh. Malty flavor, earthy, almost no hop. Meh.
