durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2013
Draft pour, looking a nice bright hazy yellow with a firm white head. Nose was huge citrus--lemon and grapefruit as well as tart orange with a spiciness that showed itself on the tongue. Some tropical notes. Hoppier than expected, in a wonderful way. Citrus, fruit, and pepper, all well balanced in a full-bodied IPA. I could drink so much of this.

mile (3313) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and tropical fruitiness, some citrus - light piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and tropical fruitiness, some citrus/piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and fruitiness, some citrus/piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Too much alcohol considering the body - could use more bitterness and body to balance alcohol.

nickd717 (3600) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 12, 2015
Bomber from Samís in Durham, NC. No date! Oh well, I trust that it was bottled no more than 48 hours before I purchased it. The appearance is near perfect - a beautiful golden orange with a large, frothy white head and lacing thatís freaking LIFE-CHANGING!!! Seriously Iím a new man after seeing that lacing. Daaaayyyyuuuum! The aroma is good. Tropical fruits and citrus, maybe passionfruit and tangerine. The flavor is balanced, slightly east coasty but with a good hop kick. The balance is solid. Nice and oily on the palate with medium body. Gotta love IPAs. This is a good one.

BazookaJoe (270) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2015
Pours light orange with a light citrus aroma. Well balanced ipa with some orange notes in the body that finishes sweet with a lasting bitterness. Bottles may have been a little old.

Headbanger (3491) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2015
16oz Draft 7/9/14 (WOB-Raleigh)-Pours a darker golden with a decent sized head. Aroma of hop, malt, and grass. Taste of bitterness, floral, and citrus. This medium bodied brew is pretty kick butt.

Tmoney99 (11578) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average to large frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy west coast citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

Growler. Golden color with a big white head - honestly poured a lot lighter than I expected. Lots of tropical fruit and pine hop note in the aroma and flavor. Finish was smooth, kinda buttery. Very good.
