Pours a dark golden color with some haze with a 1/2 finger head. Aroma is filled with a lot of sweetness such as pineapple and grapefruit. A lot going on in the aroma with some pine. Taste was first noticed with the earthy grass pine flavor. Not overpowering and follwed by some mild sweetness and finally a mild bitterness. A medium mouthfeel IPA and light mouthfeel overall.

So very good. Bottle from the convenience store. Rich copper, aromas of orange and bread, like a fruit cake. The taste is outstanding, like a caramel, orange, bread pudding combination that works so well. Such a good balance of bready smooth malts and that orange peel bitterness. Some alcohol is present in the finish, would not have guessed 9% though. This is just a terrific beer.

I have to say I wasn’t expecting this to be as good as it was. This DIPA is on par with the big boys.Outstanding sweet floral nose and strong hoppy taste. Very nice!

Bottle. Golden pour with a lot of white foamy head. Smells of hops and slight malt sweetness. Tastes bitter on the finish but not very bitter. Good ipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What this beer has in standard citrus IPA bombardment, it lacks in subtly. Grapefruit and...?

CanIHave4Beers (3134) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours a golden color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is grassy & citrusy, pungent & restrained on booziness. It’s not especially complex, although it presents it’s self very nicely as a hop forward, fragrant, and enjoyable beer.

The flavor has a nice but never over the top bitter bite. The beer is hop forward, lightly sweet, citrusy and just a touch boozy.

Nice stuff.

BLADT (455) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2014
From tap. Murky orange-brown. Large hop nose of pine and grapefruit. Full bodied taste of orange sherbet, shortbread and a nice resin out. Never too bitter. High abv tamed. Lingers on the palate. Great effort.

On tap at the old fashioned. Orange color with a foamy head. Fruity, mango, candied aroma. Taste is bright fruity hops and pine and some booze. High hop bitterness, slightly warming. Long finish. Intense hop flavor here but really it is still very complex. Definitely a hop bomb but still quite enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
