3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Cigar City. Stoked to finally try this! Pours impressively bright (in a Spieglau IPA glass, no less!) golden amber with thin white head. Aroma is sweet rich malt with a decided oaky component; hops are vegetal and floral. Taste is rich syrupy caramel malt, earthy and oaky; hops are medium bitterness, nice floral juiciness throughout. Huge for a "single" IPA, tons of malt and juicy hop flavor; almost (dare I say) west coast in its execution.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2016 Draft pour at LR in Boynton Beach. Pours hazy amber with ample white head. Aroma is fruity, mostly citrus. Initial taste is bitter citrus (hops & grapefruit), then the fullness of grapefruit, pine and tar hit the palate with a pleasant bite. Excellent IPA.

Pours an ideal amber with lasting off-white head. Aroma is complex, heavy and rich with honey, crisp with mango and pine sap. This was one month old, unrefrigerated at Target. On tap I suspect it would be even better. Very nice.

can @ a friend’s house. Smelled great! - like a spiked Tangerine punch at a wedding. Looked like diseased urine. Tastes like someone squeezed the juice from a pine cone and added some tangerine zest. Palate was even worse! Aftertaste was citrus-turpentine. Wouldn’t serve this to my worst enemy. Absolute worthless piss!

Six pack brought back from Atlanta. Loving this IPA right now. Pours a rich orange with a nice white head. Tons of flavor and well balanced- pine/ resin/ orange/ mango. Feels like a meal in a glass. Appropriately big mouthfeel and ABV. Super solid IPA.

Can. Pours clear amber gold with nice off white head and lacing. Nose is sweet tropical, melon and dough. Taste is similar with some dry bitterness. Great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2/3/16 batch. Golden honey, syrupy, the bubbles seem to rise a little slower. Nose is ruby grapefruit, pine. Palate is resin heavy, tart, sticky on the lips. Dry towards the end with a little wang towards the back of the tongue.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Direkt aus der Dose genossen. Großartig!!
Toller Geruch. Tropisch, nicht zu viel! Schön malzig, betont aber nicht zu viel.
Extrem ausgewogen. Geschmacklich das gleiche Bild! Relativ viel Kohlensäure. Im Abgang nicht süß, eher herb. Perfekt für heiße Tage!
Sollte man probiert haben!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, poured into a pint glass. The aroma is a big, bright citrus with tropical notes and a pine undertone. The appearance is clear and oily with a rich gold hue. The foamy, sudsy white head keeps an abundant retention and great lace. The taste is a high sweet that’s cut nicely by a medium high bitter. The texture is oily with a soft fuzz and medium body. Flavors of tropical fruit and bread are most noted with some herb / pine and a finish of pine and mild grapefruit and an aftertaste of dry, clean pine.

I love this beer! I discovered it in Florida over Christmas, and then found it in Virginia. I was thrilled; it is bitter and crisp and deelicicious! Highly recommended!
