Draft... Clear amber pour with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma furnishes a blend of passion fruit, mango, citrus fruits and a light whiff of cat piss. Full-bodied and astringent with lively carbonation. The flavor provides a bounty of tropical and citrus fruit bitterness. Very little residual sweetness. The malts are an afterthought. Finishes bitter, sand-papery and bone dry.

GatorMike (2) - - JUN 17, 2013 does not count
Color, texture and head are spot on. I love to smell this beer before every sip. They used eight different types of hops and hit a home run. This is my favorite IPA with an ABV over 8%!

markwise (4545) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Growler courtesy of hopscotch at RBWG. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is caramel with big citrus, some mango and tropical fruits with some light alcohol. Flavor is similar with light malt, big tropical fruits and citrus. Medium in body with a moderate alcohol presence.

Fritz123 (1123) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 Tap at Due South. Pours a golden amber with limited head. Sporadic lace. Snifter. Aroma of grapefruit, grass, earth and pine needles. The taste is amazing. Immediately bitter on the palate with grapefruit, pine, and leather.

SudsMcDuff (5944) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2013
I find chopsticks frankly distressing. Am I alone in thinking it odd that a people ingenious enough to invent paper, gunpowder, kites and any number of other useful objects, and who have a noble history extending back 3,000 years haven’t yet worked out that a pair of knitting needles is no way to capture food?

jbruner (2502) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Growler shared at RBWG! Pours a clear golden orange with fluffy white head and good lacing. Aroma of fresh citrus and piney hops, a hint of floral grassiness and pale malts. Taste follows, resinous and fresh. Really good and easy to drink for a DIPA.

burg326 (3885) - Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Growler poured at RBWG, poured an orange color with aromas of citrus, light tangerine, pine, and some resin. Flavors are the same, lighter citrus than aroma suggests. Light bitter aftertaste.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Growler at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Pours light orange amber with small white lace. Quite resinous, sticky, and bitter. Some lighter citrus, pine flavors, sweet caramel, buttersotch finish. Lightly cheesy. Okay.
