Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some pine and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is full of pine, biscuit and some light orange. Light bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a medium sized foamy orange-tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet pine, grapefruit and perfume. The flavor was tangy and sour pine, lemon, perfume, citrus zest and an off and odd presence I could not quite place. Long tangy sour, pine and lemon finish with a lingering odd presence. Moderately full bodied. Meh.

Bottle. Orange malt and light pine aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter juniper/tin flavor. Okay but a bit harsh.

kramer (5095) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small off-white fizzy head that left some nice lacing. The nose is pretty nice, lots of citrusy and piney hops over a hefty slightly sweet caramel malt base. Canít say that I get much in the way of juniper on the nose, but thereís a pretty heavy hoppiness so Iím not all that surprised and I donít consider that a negative. The flavor is a little less bitter than I was expecting given the intensity of the hops on the nose. Still pretty nice though, and the sweetness is kept in check pretty well also, so that helps with the overall balance. The juniper is pretty noticeable on the finish though, after the hops fade a bit. I kinda like the interplay between the piney hops up front, and the transition to the juniper towards the finish. I also like that the sweetness is rather low. Medium bodied and just a bit clingy with nice fizzy carbonation that enhances the hops and juniper. Pretty decent beer. Extra cred for being in the $5 range for a bomber too.

Looks and smells excellent. Big piney hop aroma. The flavor is that of a good IPA. Some floral but mostly piney hops, a bit chalky in the finish being the only real downside to this beer. Quite nice overall.

Amber pour medium white fluffy head. Aroma is not particularly strong. Kind of cedar/spruce for me rather than pine. Fruity. Flavour is fruity herbal, caramel. Definitely get the juniper in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butters (3848) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2013
CLear amber pour with good ring of offwhite head. Big piney citrusy foresty hop profile. Caramel malt afterthought gives a nice balance. Lingering hop bitterness. Gotta say, this is actually a damn fine ipa.

seymour (1473) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Shared from a tall brown bottle into snifters. It poured a pretty deep reddish amber colour with long-lasting beige foam. Definitely a double IPA, extreme hoppy notes emphasizing woody and resiny traits, next some citrusy and peppery notes plus the complimentary aspects of juniper berries, balanced nicely by a strong amber ale grainbill. Some crisp graininess and caramel sweetness. Light-medium body, average carbonation, slight warmth but otherwise well-concealed alcohol. Dumb name (juniper trees are not even related to pine trees) and dumb packaging (seriously, STILL twist-off? címon, know your audience!) , but otherwise a very well-crafted beer. I wanna give credit where creditís due, but Coors makes it SO hard.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is a sweeter hop smell. Appearance is a clear brown. Taste is a very hop forward. Very piney. Palate is bitter. Overall, a decent beer. Hop heads will prolly enjoy it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mep3222 (578) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Aroma is of roasted malt and piney hops. Pretty descent aroma. Taste is not as good as the aroma. Lacks a full body and the flavors really are faint relative to the aroma. Palate is a bit watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
