22oz bottle. Deep amber color, rocky foam. Floral nose, nice hops. Smells of citrus & pine hops; sweet caramel malt, some toast. Tastes of sweet malts, some cotton candy, bitter hops, pine bark, bitter citrus peel oil. Very well balanced. One of my favorite American IPAs. (3888)

Deep golden color with a foamy off white head. Subtle citrus hop nose. Flavors of strong grapefruit rind and orange peel citrus flavors and some apple. Some honey sweetness. Long hop burn in the finish.

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Thanks to my Secret Santa for this! Copper orange, nice white head. Caramel / toffee forward, then a nice citrus blast. Flavor is a nice mix of citrus and toffee. Tasty stuff...

jbruner (1983) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with little to no head or lacing. Aroma is resinous citrus hops, heavy caramel malt, and a hint of booze. Taste follows, really make forward, and kind of sweet, but not bad. Carbonation is lacking, but nice attempt.

rbrazell (1452) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Thanks jbruner! Hazy deep golden pour with a thin small head. Sugary, sweet caramel malt with a slight tinge of pine hops. Flavor is the same with no body and a hint of a bitter finish. Nope.

ellolovey (427) - Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bomber. Pours a hazy light amber with a frothy off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, and pine hops. A lot of sweet malts, caramel, and hints of bread up front. Followed by pine and resin hops. Hints of citrus. Medium bodied. Has a bit of a metallic after taste. A bit too sweet and malty to me for an IPA. But enjoyable nonetheless.

AROMA: The bitter-sweet scent of hops will linger on your toung as you inhale. The 888 gives one a very bitter impression, that shant leave you dissapointed. APPEARANCE: This brew illuminates with a rusty brown and gold. The color is bold, and the head is smooth. An, almost, picture perfect pour! TASTE/PALATE: The piney-sweet flavor of Centennial and Columbos hops will tease the tip of the tounge as an intense bitterness quickly comes in and blankets the whole mouth. Earthy overtones appear at the end, leaving you fully satisfied. The bitterness, however, begins to take over less then half way through this brew, leaving the piney-sweet notes in the begining of this peice, never to D.S. al coda. OVERALL: To put it simply... This is a hop-heads dream brew. A perfect example of a truely bitter beer. If you’re new to craft, this would be a fine addition to a beer flight. If you’re a seasoned pro, kick back with a pint and enjoy the good stuff! DRINK CRAFT AND BE HOPPY!!!

Bomber. Dark copper/gold pour with a small dissipating head. Malty sweet nose. Taste is very malty with some piney notes. Thick viscous body. Decent.

jjuf1853 (1200) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Draft at World of Beer in Land O Lakes. Clear copper orange color with a white head. Decent lacing along the side of the glass. Aroma is much hoppier than the flavor. Flavor is somewhat sweet at first with some hop bitterness in the finish.
