Pours cloudy amber with medium tan head out of bottle. Strong aroma of hops and citrus. Smooth hop flavor but lacking finish. Good beer overall but would like more flavor on the back end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good example of balancing malt with strong hop character. Unfortunately not enough flavour present, but a good bitter punch to keep you interested for more. Interesting beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Light amber with a creamy off white head and a thin film throughout. Smooth but potent hop aroma, nice malt presence that compliments the hops, very bitter on the finish which interrupts what is otherwise a delicious and easy to drink potent DIPA - still tasty though.

Pours a deep golden colour with a staying 1/2 inch of head. Strong aroma of sweet stone fruits, oranges and maybe even a little bubblegum? Grassy hops come through in the taste backed up by a fairly sweet malt backbone, lingering grassiness and moderate bitterness. Pretty different for an IIPA, I like it!

really misses the mark if you ask me.very sweet malt all the way threw and not enough hop. maybe Iím just leaning to much to the west coast styles but this is really to "funk" for me

~Citrusy orange aroma with resinous pine and grapefruit. Sweet honey maltiness. ~Pours a hazy orange amber color with creamy long lasting off white head. ~Strong resinous piney hop flavor with citrus and earthy notes. Sweet bread maltiness. ~Medium full bodied, medium high CO2, hop astringency, lingering piney resinous hop finish. ~Not a huge IPA fan anymore, but this is quite an enjoyable sipper. Would only want to drink one of these.

AbbeyRoade (280) - Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bitterness not immediately up front but occurs during/after the swallow. Malty, resinous hop aroma and full-bodied complex flavor to match. Sweetness really balances this one out and brings the hop to a good level in the mouth. Good brew!

Bottle on The Train Tasting, Part I. Pours clear, bright gold with a frothy off-white head. Dank pine in the nose, leaves. Medium sweet flavor with dry pine, grass, dried pale malts and a bit of alcohol. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with sticky pine resins, dried pale malts, dry orange. Fair.
