No way this deserves a 73, percentile. I donít rate 5.0 because I havenít had the perfect beer yet but this is one of the best DIPAs Iíve ever had. Draft at Craft Pride Austin TX. Pours clear orange with a thin white head, nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, flowers, citrus. Taste is similar, perfectly balanced with citrusy hops, citrus finish. Not a hop monster but if you like balance in your big IPAs this is for you.

Good stuff. Light orange with a minimal head and nice lacing. Big caramel nose. Also some floral notes. Oily mouthfeel with dry finish. Taste is also caramel.

Can brought back from Texas. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have some strong floral hop notes as well as some orange citrus with a hint of pine. The flavor also has a lot of fruity notes. Medium to high bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium and I get a good amount of carbonation.

16oz can much thanks to Greame! Loving the name! Typing this with Christopher Walken voice in my head. Poured a hazy straw color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of ripe pineapple, old citrus, caramel malt, lemon, and some booze. Taste of ripe pineapple, pine, old grapefruit, and caramel and bready malts.

On tap at Onion Creek. Nice copper body. Nose is hoppy and clean. Taste is also hoppy, and ABV well hidden. Prickly texture. Enjoyable.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 30, 2015
on tap at flying saucer in houston. ruch shade of deep golden with a fluffy white head; sweet, somewhat syrup-like tropical aroma; loads of papaya, medium bitterness but leaves the door open for some sticky marmalade in the finish

Pours a yellowish orange. Some head and lacing. Aromas are hardly discernible. Thick mouthfeel, super bitter on the tip of the tongue. Resin, pine, grapefruit. Not bad, not great.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Draft at Craft Pride, Austin. I asked the bartender if this beer had a ton of hops, my exact words where, " Will this beer slap me in the face with hops?" He replied; "yes"... Well, I was lied to. Deep Amber color with thick lasting head. Aroma is a metric shit ton of caramel malt, light traces of a floral hop. From the color alone I can tell there is to much caramel malt.

The flavor has so much caramel malts that it muddles the floral hop character that really wants to come through in the flavor but it canít because of the stupid amount of malt. This brewer did NOT tone down the grain bill for this. The sweetness takes over and with the alcohol level makes it hard to drink. If the brewer really scales back the malt bill and adds to the hop profile it will help this greatly. " see above commercial description on this "toned" down grain bill" yet another lie told to me.

In the words of Edgar Allen Poe in the poem " The Raven". I wil drink this "Never more"
