This one pours a dark golden copper color. A big hoppy fruity pebble aroma. A nice clean hop flavor. A ton of citrus. Very drinkable. The alcohol makes an appearance yet still refreshing.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is dank, earthy, herbal and pine hops with pear esters, biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with light malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

A little on the boozy side here. Some citrus and light bitter finish. Pours orange amber with good head and lacing. Thanks to drake.

draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo NY. decent IIPA, aroma did not meet expectations of name but flavor was pretty solid. citrusy & pine hop flavors, malty backbone.

pushkinwow (1966) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle from mtomlins. Dark amber with a dark tan head. Slightly dank and resiny hop profile, light citrus and a caramel malt backbone, some marijuana. Moderate carbonation, mild body that seems a little watery, bitter, dry, slightly astringent.

hopmelt (154) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours hazy, dark golden, slight thin head, decent lacing. Aroma floral, tropical, melon and blueberry, bready and slightly caramel malt in the background. Taste bitter floral up front, melon, tropical and blueberry, bready malt just evident, but enough to provide some balance, clean yeast profile. Mouthfeel medium-full body, lower carbonation, bitter hop and slight alcohol bite, dry finish. Overall very tasty well made beer, never got the blueberry flavor before in a beer, it’s interesting, I would drink more of this.

Fine beer, but a bit fruity and sour to my taste for an ipa. Would definitely drink, preferably with potatoes, but unfavorable compared with other options.

flatmatt (1063) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours deep amber with an off-white head and many fine particles. Smells like citrus moving on to pine, yeah, maybe a little weed. Flavor’s got the pine and citrus, some herbal hops and biscuit. A pretty tasty IPA, though I must say I wouldn’t have guessed it was 8.5%.

Barnoloid (116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle pour. Copper colored with a thin white foamy head. This is an enjoyable IPA, which has a pronounced resiny nose and flavor profile. Hoppy with a malt sweetness. Boozy at 8.5%, glad this comes in a 12oz as a larger bottle would be difficult to take down. Big bitterness on the back end. Tropical notes are muted. This is deep and down.
