DesertDevil (525) - Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2013
12-oz. can. Nice nose of very sweet orange and a bunch of typical hop notes - alfalfa, basil, and pine. Pours an amber orange with not much head. Orange and grapefruit are the first horses out of the gate for the flavor before a piney, herbal bitterness charges to the forefront. Very crisp, light palate with a dry, grassy finish. A good summertime IPA - refreshing while pleasantly bitter.

12oz. can poured into my ipa glass. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a thick frothy white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of pine, citrus, and resin. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but wow its an amazingly citrusy hop bomb. Mouthfeel is between light and medium with ok carbonation and a dry finish. All the rumors Iíve heard of this being one of the best ipas on the market are true. I will be seeking this out on a regular basis for now on, but it tends to sell fast.

crackedmachine (471) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Pours quite clear golden with a large, pillowy white head. Aroma has a huge C-hop presence, basically like picking a cascade cone off the vine, opening it up, and inhaling. That comes through in the flavor as well, along with a bit of biscuit and a medium-bitter finish. Light and drinkable, but at 7% maybe deceptively so. Over the course of the bottle, the bitterness becomes a bit much. Very enjoyable, though.

chicowv (455) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2013
22 oz bottle: Pours orange slightly cloudy with a big tan head. Aroma of citrus and spruce - Amazing. Taste is bitter citrus hops, great profile. Finishes light but is an excellent hop forward IPA with great aroma and appearance.

andrewje41 (431) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Can. Pours a hazy amber with a floral hop filled aroma. Hop lover beer for sure. A little bit of sweet fruit in there too. Finishes really smooth and full of flavor. Easy drinking. Very well done.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2013
12 oz can - Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Fantastic hops aromas of just about everything. Man, this is a good one. Iíd have more of these for sure.

22415brewery (371) - redmond, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Perfume-like in aroma, pours a hazy light amber with a thick cap of off-white foam. Aromas of Valencia orange, light pine, citrus floral, lychee, juicy-fruit gum, grenadine-like, and a candy-like sweetness, with a slight toasty aspect. Taste upfront is moderately sweet, a medium caramel sweetness, a slight malty richness which is then followed with a smooth bittering. Finishes dry, lingers bitter. Very very good.

Hanuta06 (327) - Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: heavily piney hoppy. Appearance: large, rocky, off-white, initial head with excellent lacing and mostly lasting longevity. Cloudy, amber body. Taste: moderately bitter initial flavor and finish with long duration. Palate: medium to full body with watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very hoppy aroma without excessively bitter flavor. An outstanding IPA.

PhilJackson80 (313) - Oklahoma, USA - NOV 29, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 Oz Bomber. The beer pours to a hazy orange/ amber color with a medium head. The aroma has a piney, slight caramel, biscuits & some mild citrus. The taste has a slightly sweet start followed by a nice medium bitter finish. Overall I think this is a good IPA

Like the Comatose but less intense flavour and minus the coma. Which is for better or for worse depending on what youíre going for. Itís still a hoppy lilí ride with some caramel and bread malts and citrus juiciness. Mid mouth thatíll drink smoove.
