On tap. Pours a cloudy yellow hold, no head. Nice pine and citrus nose. Pretty balanced hop attack, a bit sweet on the finish.

7.75% Cloudy amber - brown beer. Good pale cream coloured head. Palate is slightly soft and semi dry with fine carbonation. Soft caramel malt base. Big resinous hops. Bitterish pine and lesser skunk and grass. Mild hop sting. Balances well with the sweet malt. Semi dry finish. Pretty drinkable.

This is a very tasty IPA. Good hop flavor with a touch of sweetness which I really like

12oz bottle pours clear copper with a thin light tan head of foam. The modest aroma offers up sweetness and fruity notes like citrus hard candy and a dash of cherry candy. The aroma doesn’t deliver much hoppiness but the taste sure does. I get resiny bitter hops that start out pine sap like and then climb into grapefruit and orange peel. To midway it picks up off notes of sweet cherry esters as well as some biscuit malts. These last two notes pull the IIPA apart at the seams.

Bottle; poured a dark orange/caramel color with a big frothy, off white head. Aroma of caramel, alcohol, and fruit. Flavor also was fairly malty; some nice sweetness. Some earthy and fruity hops. The earthiness lingers a bit. Fairly hot for the abv. Palate had a nice finish to it. Really just ok for the style.

People have been generous with this one. Copper pour with hints of burnt tangerine. Caramel, toffee, and honey forward. Way too sweet for the style. Bit of spicy evergreen and the ever so subtle citrus punch. Meh.

If DFH120 is big brother, and Experimental Hop Henge is middle brother, this is little brother. Same syrupy, resiny notes as in those two brews, with the lowest ABV to boot. Nice grapefruit aroma. Bitter, but not especially so surprisingly. Good malty backbone, which the deep copper pour hints at. Among these 3, if you want a resiny IPA, it truly comes down to what ABV you want. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Toronado. Orange pour with a sticky white head. Aroma is citrus, grass, a bit bready. Good hop notes. Flavor is nice. Balanced with some nice hop character. Tropical fruits, citrus, grassy, a little resin. Pretty nice

12oz bottle. A very full hop flavor, but seems a little too overpowering versus the lower alcohol content.

Amber in color with a white head. Sweet tropical fruit, sugar, and citrus notes. Some mango, pineapple, and grapefruit notes. A hint of booze, sweet caramel, and grass. Tastes of pineapple, mango, peach, and grapefruit. A bit of floral hops, very light pine, and plenty of caramel malt and sweetness.
