HonkeyBra (3525) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
22 oz bottle. Amber orange color with a small slightly off white head. Aroma of flowers, rich pine and strong citrus. Unsurprising, for a DIPA, but still nice. Flavor is strongly bitter. Strong pine and grapefruit notes. Nice, sure. Very bitter. Some pine, some lemon. Full bodied, heavier carbonation. This is nice, especially in the finish where it is quite bitter. Nice, finishes long a bitter.

robotopera (35) - USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine & More. Pours amber with a solid creamy head. Leaves a sparse lace but this snifter is plastic so take that with a grain of salt. Aroma is offensively funky with a wheat and hop background. body is oily with a light amount of carbonation. Very little amount of hops, mostly roasty toast malt flavor. Flavor is pretty weak all around which probably makes it drinkable, if it tasted like it smells I would be dumping this out. Luckily I’m at a party so I can give these away.

FunkyF (155) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2014
Flaska på BottleRock LA. Bärnsten med vitt skum. Lätt doft av tropisk frukt. Smaken är lite fruktig med inslag av syrligthet. Rejäl beska som ligger kvar länge.

slowrunner77 (6084) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Light pine and fruit, a little too much biscuity cardboard malt for my taste. Not expecting greatness from these guys... Maybe hoping for a surprise here and there. This one was just as expected."

firefly765 (137) - - JUN 30, 2014
12 ounce bottle pours an orange copper flavor with off-white head that dissipates quickly. Pine and citrus aroma not huge in the nose. Nice hop bitterness with a bit of malt to balance. A bit of an apricot flavor. Not bad but not great

BVery (6965) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle. Clear orange to light amber pour with a small soapy white head. Aroma is bready malts, resin, light citrus. Fairly oily palate. Tastes slightly boozy, hops are well balanced by the malts. Lots of malt in this.

czlowiekwiadro (251) - POLAND - JUN 3, 2014
pisane z pamięci więc może być trochę niedokładne. zapach intensywny, chmiel, cytrusy, słodowe nuty. kolor ciemnego złota, lekko zmętnione. piana dość skąpa i nie za trwała. w smaku dużo ciała, ale i spora goryczka, ziołowo grapefruitowa. czuć nuty karmelowe.

bookman10 (662) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2014
This just didn’t work for me. Pours a fairly clear, light golden yellow, with smallish head. Aroma is very grassy and bready. Flavor also dominated by bready/biscuit and too sweet and boozey.

Bamsen78 (3413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle at America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours slightly hazy amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops, with touches of fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with round notes of fruit and a pronounced acidic finish. Nice.
