UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Thanks Thirsty_Moe for the can. Really nice citrusy hop aroma. A really big hop flavor. Really lingers on. Not the most drinkable but not bad.

Pours amber-gold with a thick white head. Aroma is tropical and mango-like. Taste is fruity mango followed very quickly by a gritty hop bitterness for the mid and the lengthy finish. The mango flavor lingers a little too. Not bad.

Can. Pours golden brown with a clingy off white head. Sharp aroma of grapefruit and pine. Flavor follows nose, some caramel too. Grapefruit peel bitter in the finish.

Snifter pour of golden liquid and off white head. Nose is bright citrus and hop forward for sure. It smells great actually. Flavor is grapefruit and citrus forward. Resin and pine also. Hoppy throughout. I dig it, as the malt isn’t too prevalent.

bytemesis (3495) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Can. Pours hazy orange, medium creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is tropical, dank, passionfruit, spruce. Flavor is the same, light sweet, heavily dank and tropical on a bed of spruce boughs. Light bitter, not harsh at all. Medium body, a bit creamy. This is a solid effort. A bit of lingering bitterness.

Paincane (168) - Georgia, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Deep golden hued brew, tan head, great lacing. Loads of citrus notes in aromas. Hefty malt base leads into herbal dry hoppy finish.

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2014
12 oz. can from Fritz123 - thanks again, Mason! Pours a hazy orange color with a lot of floating yeast sediment and a huge, barely off-white head, rocky, that leaves a lot of lace when it settles unevenly. Aroma of grapefruit, pine resin, florals, soap, grass, and sweet and caramel malts. Flavor of pine resin, caramel malts, florals, brown sugar, and leaves. Medium-bodied, with a somewhat resinous, somewhat tea-like mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Finishes with a little sugary sweetness. Decent.

djd07 (3877) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Can thanks to Phil. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy off white head. The aroma is strong pine and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with strong pine, resin, and light bitter finish. Very good.

12 ounce can
Thanks to a generous trader for sending this refreshing imperial IPA. While it is a bit of a heavy hitter to drink all the time it is interesting enough that it served its purpose of refreshing on a warm summer evening. Hopefully their other beers are at least this good.

Aroma / Appearance - A bronze semitransparent head bubbles with life under a soft white head. Orange polish, light citrus, and hoppy floral notes shine along with warm stripling branches that have been cut while still a little green.

Flavor / Palate - Carbonation, oranges, pine resin, and oak contribute to a dry mouthfeel. The transition is a little tame for an East Coast (imperial) IPA. A run of the mill beer is ultimately average at best but I know of many breweries that are worse.
