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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
had just got back to our hotel, gabf in denver, saturday night, late, and as we were waiting for the elevator a small group of tipsy older people walked up and starting chatting. I ended up with a 16 oz. CaN and an invite to "party" with them later. I skipped the old person orgy and slammed this CaN in my room. Grass mostly, some mild dankness but not very deep. Good for a quick pint but i didn’t honestly enjoy this that much, but it was late so.. . . Sure it’s not 1985 right now, but who KNOWS what tomorrow will bring!?

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Other descriptions I read made this sound appealing. However the overwhelming taste for me was metallic. Tasted from a 16 oz. can into a pint glass. Same metallic overtones immediately and after letting it sit for a bit. Doesn’t taste skunked, but very unappealing. I would never buy this again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I think the description pretty much nails it. Heavy handed on the hops shows, and has a sort of creamy malt mouth feel to it. I prefer it a little crisper at this ABV, but this is how they’re barking it, so I can’t complain. It is what is says and I kinda like it. Another reviewer mentioned keeping it cold. I second this. Drink fast.

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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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,

1 pint can from Denver. Hazy golden color, white head. Very hoppy taste, though aroma and flavor a little thin. Nice malt backbone.
