Great golden color and lace. Lots of caramel and butterscotch (thanks Gaucho!) and malt and the piney hips are noticable on the backend. Really solid overall.

Can. Butterscotch in the nose. Smells just like an O’so beer. Hazy amber body. Thin head. Much more rich than I expected from the aroma. Better than the O’so beer but similar.

Orangeish pour white head. Pine and citrus aroma. Pine caramel malt citrus taste, big hops. Sticky dank. Light to medium body light carbonation.

solidfunk (3009) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 5, 2014
Nice booze, caramelized malt and hops here. Pours cloudy orange with good head and lacing. Some light florals caused by mix between alcohol and high hops. Citrus. Can.

Hoppy, piney or herbal aromas. Dry, herbal, sweet caramel or honey notes. Round, smooth, velvet body. Oh so good.

Advocate_Ames (390) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours a hazy reddish copper color with a sticky dissipating foam head that hugs my glass. The aroma is of earthy, citrus, and piney hops with a rich carmel malt tones. In tasting I noticed mild bitterness, sweet carmel and honey malt flavor, and an herbal hop taste. The finish was very good and drinkable with a subtle dryness and a soft lingering bitterness. Overall a fine beverage to drink. I would have this again.

Kurmaraja hooked this can up as an extra when he was just doing me a favor. Ryan is a cool cat.. I appreciate it amigo. 12oz can poured into my Stone Tap-Takeover goblet.. 2 finger off white head.. huge retention and lacing.. the brew is clear orange/amber. Grassy/citrus hoppiness on the nose is muted by way too much pale malt and even a bit of a biscuity/lite caramel maltiness.. very malt forward for a DIPA. Flavor pretty much mirrors the nose.. not a big enough bitter profile to balance the bigger than expected malts.. I would like waaay more hop presence and a much drier brew. Body is too heavy and the carbonation seems too light. Decent brew, but it definitely seems "East Coast".... too much residual maltiness and not nearly enough big-boned hoppiness.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a huge foamy orange-tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy with vague fruity and floral hops and a bit of citrus. The flavor was bitter and tangy with a moderately strong floral and herbal hop presence, a bit of perfume and underneath a tangy sweetness of honey, bread and sour caramel. Long tangy floral, herbal, sour caramel and honey finish. Moderately full boded. Ok.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
This one poured a medium orange color with a smaller off white head. Aroma was of citrusy hops, light tropical, and caramel. Falvor was similar, fairly bitter and old schoolish DIPA, decent hop taste but way too load on the caramel malt.

Can thanks to ygtbsm94 for fbw! Thanks! Pours a hazy golden orange color with big off white head. Nice big citrusy hop aroma followed by some more danky character. Huge hop flavor up front, more citrusy notes. Danky character follows suit as in the nose then a heap of malt character. A bit of bitterness but not overwhelming, well balanced, very yummm.
