   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 17/20
J_man (693) - Tustin, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Smells like you’re stepping into a pine tree processing plant! Catty, grassy and strong pine aromas rise off the crystal clear light copper body with a foamy white head. The first taste is as explosively hoppy as the aroma! Tons of resiny pine flavor followed by some grapefruit and pith. The bitterness lays down and puts your tongue in delicious hoppy straitjacket. But just as it peaks, some dark caramel and toffee sweetness comes through to balance it out almost perfectly. Then the alcohol steps up to sweep some of this away but leaves all the good parts behind. There’s a bit of a citrusy lemon flavor in the background but it’s beaten down by the heavier flavors. Needless to say, there’s a lot of bitterness left behind and the flavors make you want to take another sip immediately. Surprisingly easy to drink for a 10% ABV beer. This is one big, delicious IPA that I can’t wait to try again.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2014
A lightly hazed golden amber dipa with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice grassy biscuit malt with good citrusy and floral hops. In mouth, a nice fruity biscuit malt with good citrus pulp, floral resinous hops, alcohol warmth, very nice. On tap at Bacon and beer Classic.

Braudog (5596) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle. Golden-amber with an average topping of foam. This is a really nice mandarin orange - citrusy beer. It stings the palate just a bit from sip one. It does add a bit of a dirty undertow. Very good. (#5589, 7/25/2014)

devman171 (912) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Tap at lures. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is slight sweet malt with big citrus and floral hops. Taste is full bodied with nice balance for a 10% beer, but nothing to bring me back

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Draft at the Owl Farm. Pours orange with an off white head. Dank citric notes, almost like a bag of dirty oranges, light tropical fruity notes, and moderate bitterness. Not bad.

solidfunk (3673) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Very well put together. Very nice hop aroma and malt without being a boozy mess like many double ipas. Pours golden with OK head and lacing. Bitter finish. Lots of pine in this, some citrus and some shortbread cookie or something. Tap at meridian pint

jmgreenuk (4086) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle from the De Molen Beershop. Poured hazy light amber with a whispy white head. The aroma is buttery creamy toffee caramel. The flavour is moderate bitter, light sweet with a smooth rich buttery malt alcoholic palate. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Loved the beer, but where was the Citra?

tricksta_p (914) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2014
Aroma of citrus fruits, tropical fruits, caramel, aromatic hops. Flavour is creamy caramel malts, strong citrus hops, with a bittersweet finish. The alcohol is hidden pretty well. Not very complex, but nice and quaffable.
