Eh. Bitter. Would have been better if complemented by some other kinds of hop. Not bad but not good either.

A solid beer, however it is surprisingly bitter. Itís nice but there doesnít seem to be much complexity to it.

Beerathon (1217) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2013
For having "100% Columbus hops" itís impressive that so many hop notes come out in this brew. A bit of earthiness, spice, and slight piney and citrusy nose. Nice dry finish. Overall and enjoyable 2XIPA.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle: Poured a bright orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral aroma is quite engaging. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with some floral undertones and some lightly sweet caramel malt notes. Pine notes are also noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. A bit too sweet for my taste but still extremely enjoyable.

AndyW68 (1109) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Hazy orange gold pour with a light white head. Aroma is sweet artificial pine. Taste is citrus and pine hippy. Mild bite at end. This would have rated much better just a few years ago, but competition is getting better.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle. More or less the standard pour -- golden, amber with a super firm, pillowy top of white foam. Thereís little aroma, just a hint of pine. The beer drinks with a decided astringency, finishing with a super dry earthy, sap-based acidity. Sticks with you for a while. (#5205, 8/21/2013)

JohnnyJ (4395) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Sample from bomber. Orange pour, with a white head. Caramel malt, light citrus, light piney hops, bread, and cardboard. Not a very good IIPA, the bottle might be old.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Hazed light orange pour with a white head. Smells like old, stale hops. Fish food, cardboard, orange peel, and some body odor. Sweet caramel malt, too. The flavor is a bit better; more citrus forward. Some pine, caramel, and a bit of bitterness. Still somewhat off/oxidized/stale.

Placker (4) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2013 does not count
22 oz bottle from Total Wine Jacksonville. Fruity kind of citrus aroma. Poured a cloudy golden amber. A nice thick fluffy head caught me by surprise as it erupted from the from the glass. Malty bready flavor with some notes of lemon. The pine is there in the finish.
