Damn tasty beer. Been waiting for this beer for a while so there was some hype attached to it for me. Huge hop aroma. Nice malt backbone. Caramel character and orange hop flavor. Very balanced as expected. Not super bitter. Tasty and balanced.

On cask at PreFunk. Cask smooths out the bitterness, rich golden color, lots of sticky lacing. Nice IPA on the lighter side.

IPA pas comme les autres, elle explose au début pour s’addoucir au milieu et finir avec une grosse amertume.

Sevenlee (1266) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2014
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, pine, fruit and plenty of hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a hoppy finish. Excellent.

ajtrupp (223) - Keenesburg, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Surprisingly balanced. Bordering on mild. Not near as bitter as our bartender was at his parents for naming him Tiz. And that's understandable, as another Christmas birthday (they did it as in "Tis' the season") I'd be pissed, too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sudomorph (510) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
Rating 500. Bottled 4/10/14. Pours a chill jazed light Orange with a one finger, slightly off white head that laces well. Aroma has big notes of tropical fruits, pine, and resin. Taste is balanced but bitter. Orange citrus, pine, resin, tropical, and a bitter, pine aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly resin texture but still really clean and drinkable. Smooth and easy drinking. Overall a great IPA. Lots of flavour in a very drinkable package. Awesome. Citrus, pine, resin, and tropical fruit.

Piney aroma that leads to a nice malty taste. Midway through is super citrus bit of pineapple. Great sticky taste before bitter finish. A cool IPA. 7.5%. 2.2 Std drinks. 12ounce ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fattybladdy (503) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle to pint. Golden orange in color with a foamy white head. Nice combo of malts and citrus in the aroma. Taste is piney hops, citrus and grapefruit with a big malty presence and lingering bitterness. Tasty stuff.
