Draught. Pours an amber color without a large head. Nose is very hoppy, as is the taste. Light on the palate with a clean crisp finish. One of the better IIPAs Iíve had.

Draft... Jupiter Craft Brewerís Festival 2013... This beer rocks!Ö Deep, crystal clear, textbook amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet is a grapefruit bomb with a sprinkling of cat piss and other assorted, dank, earthy notes. There are also mild components of biscuit and flowers. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with prickly carbonation. The flavor features an impressive toffee, caramel and honey malt backbone, but it only serves as a pedestal for massive citrusy and earthy hop bitterness. Lengthy, bittersweet finish. World class imperial IPA!

ReggieDunlap (2924) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a medium white head. Aroma has loads of fresh hop notes...so green and citrusy/spicy...simcoe all over. Flavor is so fresh! Pine, grass, fresh greenery, faint citrus...light hoppy spice...mild herbal notes. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and herbal/piney. Awesome.

Poured into a goblet at Dirty Jackís. This is that bright orange color I enjoy so much in IPAís with a good white head. Looks like Green Man has gone very American with this one. There is super strong citrus in the nose with pine, melon and grass. The malts are appropriately sticky, giving this a resinous feel, but doesnít get overwhelming even towards the end of the glass. The hops are bitter and refreshing throughout providing refreshment and a spicy finish. I am very pleased with this one. Well done!

Drake (7937) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Brewvival Trip Beer 9. Draft at the brewery. Pours a murky orange color with a large creamy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of intense resin hops with pine, citrus and tropical hops and caramel malts. Huge hoppy taste with notes of resin, herbal, vegetal and candied citrus. Pale malts. Medium bodied, faint booze. Different DIPA, but quite nice.

Tmoney99 (10073) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle shared by jmborggren. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex resin, citrus and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy complex bitter finish of medium to long duration. This is a standout beer.

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2013
750 ml bottle via NC trade- thanks again, John! Pours a clear dark orange tea color with a thick off-white head that settles into an uneven film with a ring. Plenty of lace. Aroma of very herbal hops, with pine, oils, leaves, pepper, and some caramel and toasty malts. Flavor of peppery, herbal, oily hops, caramel malts, grapefruit peel, pine needles, and dry grains. Medium-bodied, with a dry, bitter mouthfeel that has a bitter push late but doesnít linger too heavily. Really nice double IPA. Complex showcase of hops.

jbruner (1964) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Pours a clear copper from the bottle pillowy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of fresh hops, simcoe and chinook really come through, earthy, floral, a tad funky. Taste follows, with just a touch of bitterness and no real hint of the abv. Pretty damn good.
