Pours a hazy orange with an off-white head and lacing. It has a great aroma of pine and some citrus with a flavor that's resin and citrus with a strong malt backbone and bittersweet, syrupy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

krumbum (402) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Nice hazy orange gold with thick lasting head. Very light hoppy smells. A grainy hoppyness The bitter hits a little dirty. Fades nice but the after taste is left a little clumsy bitter.

PhilJackson80 (252) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 21, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 22oz bomber . The beer pours to a medium golden color with a thick white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit, & some floral notes. The taste was very smooth with a nice hop kick but not too bitter. Flavor was very good but seemed slightly subdued to me for a DIPA. Overall a very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle. Shiny amber, quite still. Head is thin but firm. There’s a firm resinous aroma. And it drinks with a viscous feel, an aggressive woodsy bite and tart citric finish. (#5471, 3/20/2014)

Orange clear pour from 22oz bottle. White sticky head. Delicious flowery fruity aroma. Bitter and hoppy with massive fruity peach plum and earthy taste. Awesome beer.

tcane7 (1576) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle from Craftshack. Pours a clean golden orange with bubbly white head and seafoam lace. Nose of citrus, caramel, peach, pine. Sweet upfront, mild bitterness, pretty dry finish. Tasty

umich03jm (1574) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to Jason for sharing. Pours a clear orange-gold with a medium sized head that fades to a ring and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is packed with dank and citrusy hops. Getting grapefruit, grapes, olive oil, and wet leaves. Tastes like oily hop leaves and grapefruit mostly. Some sweet malt and light tropical fruit as well. Solid DIPA but doesn’t seem to warrant the hype around it.

22oz bottle poured into shaker pint. Hazy golden amber with a stubborn two-finger rocky cream-colored head. Mango, pine, orange, grapefruit, and caramel aroma. Bitter up front with orange peel, pine resin, and grapefruit pith. Mid palate sweetness with malty caramel and bread crust. Bitter on the swallow with a touch of aspirin and pine. Medium body, viscous texture that grows creamy as it warms, long bitter finish.
