Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is fruity and citrus. Med body. Flavor is fruity and suddenly that citrus that is almost like pine. Lots and lots of hop. It’s a bit sweet, but there’s enough hop to solve that. Extremely tasty.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 19, 2015
A golden body with a white head. Strong pine and resin hops notes upfront. A nice blend of apricot and mango and a touch of citronella. Flavor had some Carmel malt sweetness to it. The rest was all hops. Strong pine notes and tropical fruit dominated the flavor. Slightly dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thisis12ptfont (936) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Aromas of big fresh, wet hops, tangerine juice, apricot, massive pines, orange, pineapple, caramel malt, resinous hops and earth. Appearance is a clear gold copper with a thin white foam head. Taste is incredibly fresh and crisp with notes of caramel malt, harsh pines, harsh bitterness, harsh resin, harsh hop oils, orange, tangerine, biscuit malts, cracker malts, toasted malts, honey, grapefruit, citrus and lemon. Finishes dry with extremely piney and bitter hops. Aggressive boozy burn. Overall, this is a real treat. This beer has a really solid body to it but the hops just take the show. Such a piney, dank, resinous, oily hop forward beer. Would DEFINITELY buy again.

NikkTwist (1844) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Clear gold pour with an off-white head that left some notable lace. Having immediately after the Hoptologist which feels very similar. This one also has huge floral, resin earthy notes. Less refined - but that?s not necessarily a bad thing.

2/11/15 From bomber dated 12/24/14. Strong pine resin aroma. Very hoppy and not as well balanced as Pliny. Strong with strong aftertaste. Grapefruit and dank tasting. Ok but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhilJackson80 (437) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 2, 2015
22 oz bottle. Tasted on 2/2/15. Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Aroma has a very dank hop aroma with strong notes from the Citra. The taste is overly hoppy with a gray smooth flavor. An outstanding triple IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

callmemickey (3255) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Glowing golden-orange body, thin off-white head, soapy lacing. Lively grapefruit and orange marmalade, sweet pale malts and a little bit of resin. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, mild sweetness, assertive bitterness. Big.

TimE (3638) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 30, 2015
Light amber color. White head with quick dissipating head. Big sweet malty nose with lots of tangerines which works well with the sweet maltiness. The mouth is very big with lots of maltiness, but alcohol is relatively well hidden. Stone fruits. Well integrated, but probably could be better with slightly less alcohol. Big tangerine and citrus finish. Yummy stuff.
