Hazy orange with white head. Black tea, pine and maybe honey. Taste is grassy, alcohol, hop bitterness, citrus. Medium body, nice carbonation and bitter finish. I miss a little more sweetness to balance it out.

More floral hoppiness in taste than the aroma. High sweetness and moderate bitterness. Finish is bitter. Soapy dry texture. Average carbonation.

Tap at Brewdog, Sheffield. Hazy orange. Off white head. Thick, chewy, orange marmalade. Taste is thick sweetness, offset by a medicinal, grapefruit bitterness. Bitter finish builds, and lingers. Tasty gear.

Hazy orange. No head but nice lacing.
Aroma of honey, pine, floral with tropical fruits. The taste is the same with a nice bite of bitterness and a nice malty backbone. ABV well hidden. Great stuff!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is pine and citrus, taste is pine, citrus, lots of hop bitterness, sweet malt backbone, alcohol is somewhat present. I wish it had a higher abv (12%) and a little more malt presence, would make this a 5/5.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bomber bottle dated on Dec 13, 2013
Aroma - constant orange peel aroma, a little piney
Appearance - very clear amber/reddish color. Thick egg shell head with nice lacing
Taste - very well balanced between malt and hops. Nice lingering taste. I thought it was going to be a orangey zest bomb, but it is a solid tasting beer.
Palate - medium mouthfeel. Leaves a nice after taste
Overall - I was worried this bottle sat too long, but it has really held up nicely.

This is a great beer. Well balanced. I have just started enjoying IPAs and I have to say this is going to be a favorite. The hop flavor lingers for quite awhile after taking sips. Great for your average hop head.
