Lightly hazy orange with big, foamy, white head / Bright nose of weed, earth, and citrus / Medium to full body, creamy, some sweetness, big fruit matched by moderately biting hops, and fine bitter finish / Flavors of orange peel, cream, weed, fresh cut pine, candied sugar, soap, and grapefruit / A perfect double.

MarinaMarket (247) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Super bright and light colored for the malt presence. Well balanced and hidden ABV. Beautiful mouthfeel. Pine, cat pee, all that’s good in an IPA. Tasted at 45°F.

Bombers from Capone’s and Whole Foods. Pours clear straw with off-white head. Nose is big resiny hops,citrus, grapefruit, black pepper. Tastes rich, with heavy caramel malt, piney hops, tangerine, pineapple, and some late warming heat. This one is excellent.

Sharing. Very strong hoppy aroma with strong bitterness. Stunning. Some sweetness there too. The flavour is strong sweet and bitter hops. Wow! Great

Dorwart (2482) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2015
God sized offwhite head of fine bubbles with light carbonation. Nice hoppy arome with some ripe oranges, sweet malts, some pine and crusty fresh bread. Color is a cloudy pale orange. Wow, big alcohol presence up front and long after the swallow. Warms the whole way down. Moderate malts and sweetness to offset the huge hops presence and bitterness. More pine, roasted red peanut skins, toasted grains and popcorn. A bit unbalanced but in a good way. Lingering grapefruit pith and cough syrup. A pretty good IIPA but a bit over the top on abv makes this brew a bit harsh.

11.25%ABV. Triple IPA. Tapped out a hazy golden amber. 8ºSRM. Nose has some very enticing ripe tropical fruit sweetness. Over ripe pineapples, mangoes and pomelo come to mind. Mouthfeel is soapy and ponderous. There are some nice roasted malty flavors which begin with rich malty sweet bolstered by a rich slightly buttery backbone that brings along flavors of butterscotch and toffee. The finish is made very special by the high alcoholic content the fumes accentuating the acerbic bitterness of the hyssop-like finish. There is fresh,dark green pine, fir needles and some beautiful fresh hay richness to the herbaceously refreshing and aggressive hop finish. Very very nicely done. The bold malty character and the agressive happiness that suggests smoke, make this like tasting a nice Speyside single malt. Goes on Favorites List!

On tap @ the Rockhouse with the kids eating cupcakes. Pours a clear orange with a small white head - smells yummy...like a west coast IPA - although it is an IIIPA. Pine, citrus - with a caramel backbone. Thin and lightly carbonated. This easily tastes like a beer that is 7ish% but it is 11.25%! Not sure which one is better...this one or Lupulin River (8% IIPA) by the same brewery. They both taste very similar, West Coast Cali Single/Double/Triple IPA lovers this is a must try. I’ve seen it at Whole Foods in a bomber...buy it.

This is one of my favorite beers. It has a sweet smell and very hoppy flavor . I like that this beer has a smooth hoppy flavor without much of a after bite . It's high alcohol content (11.25%) makes it more of a slow relaxing drink with amazing flavor . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Pours a dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a lasting film/ring. Sporadic streaks of lace left behind. Dank earthy hop aroma with fresh cut grass, earthy pine and resinous oils countered by subtle citrus/tropical fruit and a pale malt backbone. Pine needle, spruce tip, floral buds and grass countered by strong grapefruit, pineapple, blood orange, melon and lemon peel sweetness. Pale malts with faint bread, biscuit and cracker. Nice balance with juicier fruit notes countering the earthy resins. Full body with a blast of dry, dank earthy bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt character into a bone dry finish. Dry and sticky with resinous oils and pine needle. Slightly spicy with grass, spruce tips and dank leaf. Very bitter but the bitterness is countered by prominent fruit sweetness. Hints of melon and grapefruit with pineapple, lemon pith and blood orange. Pale malt backbone with subtle caramel and toffee sweetness along with bread, biscuit and grainy graham cracker. Some boozy sweetness and a bit of heat in the finish but the high ABV is pretty well masked. Alcohol presence takes away slightly from the hop flavors but it’s still deceptively drinkable at 11.5%.
