Clear deep golden with a lasting sticky white head. Good earthy hop note with some piney and resiny bitterness-but mostly earthy. Good bitter flavour with some resin-and-pine flavors and a generic ipa malt body. Obviously the hops are on show and it’s really Californian. Just sorta resiny and bitter but not unbearably so.

Tap. Amber with small head. Medium malt body. A bit more bitterness than the buffalo hump, and bigger overall.

travita (3954) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, golden in color with a thinner off white head. The smell is hoppy, pine, grass, and ok. The taste is grass, pine, bitterness.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Pale copper. Lasting white head. A little spicy. Very palatable balance of floral hoppiness and weaker malt. Yeah. Traditional ass-kicking kind of IPA.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Pour out of bottle at ROYGBIV day, clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought grass, pine, big weedy, dank notes, slight orange peel into some biscuit and caramel, slight bready notes as well, yeast. Taste is a mix of nice dank hops, big orange peel, tropical notes come through as well into a bit of bread, yeast, slight earthy notes, finishing with some spice, pretty bitter.

Bottle shared @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Pour is hazy orange with a big cream-colored head and good lacing. Huge weed, danky, resinous aroma - light garlic notes. Taste is not as overpowering as the aroma, but still heavy weed, dank hops biscuity, doughy and grassy with a huge bitter finish and lingering aftertaste. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad, but a bit overdone IMO.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Pours a fairly clear, orange/copper appearance with a tan head. Grapefruity, a bit spicy, dank hoppy aroma. A bit juicy, pineapple/citrusy, piney, sweet toasted malty flavor. Overall, not bad.

Tan and clear with a good head and lace. The malt base is ample and there’s plenty of grapefruity hops. There’s also a nice bit of sweetness that gives this beer an extra dimension, it’s quite not as dry as some IPAs. Body is medium, moderately carbonated, and damn easy to drink. A nice medium bitterness finishes, and the moderate level of alcohol doesn’t leave you too toasted after drinking the whole bomber! This is a fine beer. I think I liked the Soul Doubt IPA better, but anytime I get something from Freetail, I’m always pleased. I have to go that way today, hopefully they’re open when I pass by so I can pick up something else to try!
