Nice citrus and hop aroma. Orange flavor up front but then bombarded with bitter hops. Long aftertaste.

Very hazy copper orange pour. Medium white head. Very dank aroma. Pine and citrus from hops as well. Medium to thick mouthfeel. Flavor follows the aroma. Dank hops come out first. Mid taste is more mild citrus hops, and finish is actually somewhat sweet given the amount of hops.

Great hop nose. Initial moderate aromatic hop followed by bitter, but quickly disappears. Initially no malt, minimal as warms up

Very dank on the nose.. just a dank pine needle smell. Dankess follows though to the taste slightly.... not horrible but not the best ipa ive had light to medium mouthfeel. Poured an orange amber color into a snifter with about a finger of white head. Id drink again but dont know if id buy a whole 4 pack again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange and hazy, pretty good one finger head, and nice lacing.
Smells a bit light for an IPA but not bad at all. Itís a bit malty, with some hops aromas and a bit of citrus.
Tastes pretty malty for an IPA, but quite tasty. Thereís some hops and citrus, a touch of pine, and a light sweetness despite being slightly dry.
Feel is light to medium bodied, moderately carbonated, and lingering light bitterness with a hint of sweetness.
Iíd certainly be happy to consume it again, itís pretty good, if not outstanding.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle - pale yellow with a nice white head. Floral hops aroma. Tons of hop flavor. Enough malt to back it up, but a little more would be nice. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
100 IBU? Had to try a bottle, and unfortunately amongst a drawn out bar crawl featuring mainly Lone Stars. Resiny, stanky pine hop aroma, which covers some stale, beaten down malt. Very bitter, also starchy sweet and crunchy. Heavy carpet bomber of the palate. Pretty good, but mad hops doesnít always make an IPA.
