Bottle thanks to scotchzi. Wow. Pours pretty clear orangeish/gold. Smell is super fresh juicy pineapple, and citrus. Taste is fresh grapefruit core, floral hops, pineapple, citrus, malty base, and underlying earthy notes at the end. Very balanced. Bold flavors but not overpowering.

On tap at wine 101. Another fantastic beer by green man! If you have the opportunity to try this beer do not pass it by.

bubbleflubber (1739) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Pours a nice amber into the glass, with a fluffy white head that leaves ring soap lacing. Very hoppy nose, with fresh peppered grassiness. Flavors boast a bold malt contingency, alcohol notes, peppering pine and resins to finish. A well-balanced brew, providing a chewy mouthfeel and a thick, full body that slathers the tongue. Green Man knows how to put out some world class brews in these micro-batch special releases. Just great!

Bottle @ Bobby’s house, shared by Sam. Golden orange pour with a white head. Nice big pineapple aroma. Lots of citrus peel, pine, and grass. A touch on the sweet side with plenty of caramel. Big bitterness to the flavor, but also quite sweet. Pine, resin, grass, and citrus peel. Decent pineapple notes. Kind of muddled, otherwise good.

From bomber. Pours an attractively clear dark amber. Aroma says HOPS. Complex - no single hop shines through, but the combination is tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ReggieDunlap (3005) - 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.

phaleslu (6204) - 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 doesn’t linger too heavily. Really nice double IPA. Complex showcase of hops.

tmongoose (1188) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 11, 2013
750 bottle shared. Poured orange with off white head. Huge pine nose with some citrus underlying. The flavor is somewhat malty and sweet. The hops are predominant and bitter. The sweet is weird and not working. Less malt would make this much better.
