kevinator (1850) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Average IPA. Citrus and barley aroma. Light amber color. Low head with average carbonation. Good lacing that remained in the glass. Nice up front hop presence that lingered and added a dry finish. Needed more balance and the alcohol was well hidden. Good to drink with a burger.

Cavie (4303) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Tap at WoB. Pours a clear copper color. Light amount of carbonation. Big hoppy nose. Citrus, resin, pine. Bitter hops upfront. Dried leaves, Sap, pine needles and sweetness. Finishes very dry and hoppy bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

travita (4841) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Can. Much better than I expected. Nice kick of fruity hops right out of the can. Clear, golden and bright, ok off white head. Peaches, pine, mango, and grapefruit mix. The taste is clean, hoppy, crisp, and super easy going down.

RRistow12 (698) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Tasted from can. Pours a pale mostly clear gold with a thick white head. Strong aroma of orange, mango, melon, grapefruit, lemon. Taste is moderately bitter with nice malt backbone. Taste similar to aroma with some floral notes as well. Pretty well done IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Drank June 10, canned June 8. Tough to get the beer to Dallas from Oklahoma too much faster. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is a nice mix of orange and pine, with a bit of tropical fruit. The flavor is similar. There is a nice juicy character plus some bitter, resinous pine. Fairly bitter. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Love it.

kathouse (1608) - Nevada, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Orange and hazy with a white sticky foam. Moderate hop bitterness and a distinctly citrus flavor. Some vegetal matter in the finish.

A very tasty beer. Bottle poured into tumbler. Ok head, no lacing. Interesting flavours but can’t isolate too much.

theisti (3857) - Kansas, USA - DEC 6, 2015
16 oz can at BRGR in Prairie Village, Kansas. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a 1/2 white head. Nice head retention and lace. The aroma is floral resin, citrus peel bitterness and a bit of malt. The taste is the bitter citrus up front, and Iced Tea Crystal malt taste behind, followed by earthy resin and more bitter. The palate is medium bodied, soft active carbonation and the dry bitter finish.

F5 is the force of nature its name would have you suspect. This is a hop bomb brewed in the West Coast way with enough alpha acids to blast your palate into submission. Grapefruit zest and crisp pine - oh yes, there’s lots of bitter, good stuff in here. Some of Oklahoma’s tornadoes have been rumored to be so powerful they’ve stripped the skin off anyone unfortunate enough to be in their way. This F5 is more benevolent. It’ll just strip the enamel off your teeth.

HuskerTan (1670) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Can. A- Pineapple, tropical fruits, subtle malts, hoppy. A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Pine, bitter, citrus, subtle caramel. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Wanted a lot more citrusy juicy notes than I got but as it warmed the pineapple on the nose really came out. A little bit of caramel helped with the bitterness, but not enough.

Travlr (21204) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Draft at Great Nebraska Beer Fest. Clear golden color, white head. Aroma of cantaloupe and tropical fruit. Taste is juicy, fruity, dank and earthy. Delicious.
