Have seen this many times on draft, always scrolled past. Saw it for the first time bottled today and picked up a 4 pack for $8.99. Not a huge investment in case itís dumpster juice. So here we go. Pours a clear light amber with a white head. Active carbonation steaming. Smells of earthy,dirty hops, some dirty malts. Taste is similar, some funky dirty hops,a touch of citrus but mostly those dirty english type hops. Iím guessing goldings for the English hops (no idea, just a guess based on the dirty aroma) and perhaps Willamette for the US hops? Pretty thin mouthfeel. Slightly fruity finish with no real bitterness present. Itís middle of the road.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a growler.
A: Smells very piney. An earthy citrus smell.
A: Looks fine. Head is small. color is reddish amber.
T: When cold very piney and earthy. A sort of body odor funk on the back of the palate. This beer gets better as it warms. It keeps that sort of pine note but the BO funk disappears. Goes down easy... almost too easy: light and not overly flavorful.
P; Rough when cold. good when warm. A little light. Good hop balance. Was gonna give it a three but if you let it linger it has a nice creaminess. And after the beer is a bit warmer it can sit on the palate comfortably for a long while. Much better than many IPAs.
Overall like mentioned above this beer is gross when its cold, but very good when itís warm. Nice pine note in the hops and extremely easy to drink. A very great brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Moon Under Water, Victoria, Canada. The name is awesome. Amber, white head. Nose is fresh juicy grapefruit, pine, slight cat piss, alcohol. The latter two characteristics come out more in the flavour, which is not overly bitter and quite sweet. Alright but one those beers where I look at other reviews and silently ask if my palate is off rather than the product.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the best tastes ever for an IPA. Complex and hoppy, with notes of several spices and flowers. Same for the aroma. Dry finish but short on the palate, kind of abrupt.
