Sampled on Draft (Nitro). This was a very nice surprise with the alcohol well hidden. It really seems like a session beer until you have had a pint. Worth a try if it is available in your area.

This beer was good. I liked it. Strong hop flavor in the aroma through the finish. Sweet with enough malts to cover the alcohol.

Bottle @ home, tfs Vaiz! Aroma is big hops, big caramel, some candy like notes. Flavour is about the same, not as bitter but very hoppy. Nice one.

On tap at epic. Golden otamge pour with a snow white head. Good clarity. Highlights say ahop heads delight. Aroma is alittle lacking. Still, has light citrus nose. Smooth beer, some bitterness. Orange, and marmalade flavors.

DrunkSanta410 (306) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Taster at the brewery. Pours a clear copper color with white head. Lacy. Aroma is nice and hoppy, hints of pine, resin and a bit of earthiness. Taste is great, nice pine hops and a great malt backbone. Solid bitterness. A bit of sweetness, caramel. Palate is medium body, medium carbonation. Great beer.

jksipa (407) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
Release#101. Murky light orange with a tiny white head. Nose has tons of grapefruit and resin with light honey and a definite alcohol background. Bitter from start to finish with some light toffee and honey unable to hide the alcohol. Medium oily mouth with soft carbonation and a long bitter finish. Lots of hops but no balance.

kathouse (1057) - Nevada, USA - OCT 24, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 From the tap a very cloudy light brown. The thin foam had a subdued aroma of floral and citrus. The beer itself is outstanding. Tons of hop flavor without being too bitter. Hops last for days. Great way to finish a meal.

stevoj (2292) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Big strong beer out of Utah, on nitro tap at PreFunk. Pours out ultra creamy and thick, hop aroma much more subdued than the taste, which brings a blast of hops and malt. Lingering hoppy bitterness. Excellent!

czar (4608) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
pours unclear bright golden orange with a small off-white cap, although reviving and leaving nice lacing. citrus and peaches - very fruity and almost juicy, doughy pale maltiness, booze, hint of sweetness - barley sugar and honey, spicy and piney too. light carbonation, medium body - oily, balanced spicy-citrusy finish. nice!

On draft. Well, this is good. Aroma of burnt orange. Lacing may be the densest I?ve ever seen on an IPA, the head too. Flavors of orange, some tangerine tartness and a brisk caramel malt finish. Teeny bit of stickiness at the end. Excellent.

Bengibbs6 (53) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bomber poured into tulip glass. Hazy light golden color with white head. Nothing special with the aroma, mostly dank, pine and ripe fruit. Flavor is a welcome contrast- mango, nicely bitter and clean with a lingering finish. Worth drinking ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
