3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from can into snifter, hazy burnt orange with minimal head. Aroma is a bit dank, too be expected. Not bad, not bad...initial taste is decent, the it slowly spirals down. Not very lively, interesting beer actually. I can’t decide if it’s good or not so good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Deep orange. Nose is sweet caramel malts, some orange and green, dank hops. Quite malty and sweetness gets out of hand as it warms. ’Dank’ but not overly so.

gold pour aroma old school grassy skunky hops. Tastes cheesy, pine, grassy hops. not all that bitter. takes the ipa back a good twenty years or so. not a good thing in my book. Buttery palate is nice though.

Thanks wchesser for throwing this one in. In reading some of the reviews, glad I did not get an infected on. Lots of orange sweetness, light tropical/pineapple, some pine. Medium high sweet malt backing. Good.

16oz can from College Liquors
Pours clear dark golden with a medium sized white head, good lacing. Aroma is dank, grapefruit, pine resin and pine needles. Taste is resin, grapefruit, oranges and pine resin
Very good. Hoppy but not over the top bitter. It is a little thin at times but I would drink this anytime.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: pours with a very big beige head that is very dense, the beer is a hazy darker copper color, excellent head retention and lacing
Aroma: grass, pine, bread, smells good
Taste: bitter throughout, very lightly lasted malt peeks thru the hop bitterness,
Palate: heavier mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste, lively carbonation
Overall: this is great, kind of a simple beer but it's executed well, very drinkable but still lots of bitterness,

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at hops and pie. Dark orange almost read with a lasting white head. Sticky lacing. Strong pine forest danky hop nose with a hint of caramel. Herbal and spicy with a heavy citrus kick throughout. Finished is a resinous dry hoppiness. A lot of dank hop aroma and flavor throughout. Pretty warming. I would rate this higher if it was a little more bitter throughout, although the heavy dry hopped flavor provides an interesting change of pace.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can poured into shaker. Copper colored and bright. Lasting sticky white head. Super pine grapefruit nose. One of the most well balanced IPAs I have ever had. Hints of caramel/toffee back and forth with grapefruit. Finish was my favorite. Huge fan of dry hopped brews. This was clearly heavily dry hopped. Little to no grassy notes on the nose. pleasant and lasting resinous after bite. Dangerous IPA as it was easily quaffable. I would compare this to a dry hopped Dales Pale Ale.
