Finhead (1601) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Cloudy, orange-yellow pour with a rocky, white head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of pine. It has a medium body with oily texture and average carbonation. The taste is bitter with a milder finish.

Braudog (6299) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Draft at Ground Control. Bronze and earthen, this is gritty and chewy, definitely rife with some leafy edge but a definite alcohol burn. Good stuff. (#6032, 9/11/2015)

pressboxjoe (421) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle from bottle shop, warm, a month old. While the hoppiness was a bit faded, this sturdy strong IPA is like a more modern take on an old favorite, Dogfish Head’s 90-Minute IPA. A lot of grapefruit.

Draught @ Taproom307. Hazy bright yellow with medium foamy white head, piney hops aroma, medium carbonation, grassy hoppy taste, long hoppy finish. Nice IPA but not spectacular.

pineypower (3050) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Pours an attractive copper color with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is dank hops, juicy citrus, some pine, light tropical fruit, light bread and some dry alcohol. Taste is complex, dank hops, citrus meat, grapefruit rind, bitter pine, a punch of acidic bitter citrus and some light floral fruity notes in there. Malt profile is there but only adds slight balance. This is a tasty hop bomb.

Bebum (745) - USA - AUG 7, 2015
Deep gold, clear. Medium full body, high carbonation, low heat, intense flavor, long palate, tasty finish. Very bitter, dry. Intensely hoppy, floral, not negligible malt. Invigorating and exuberant, not a session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50belair (3341) - Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle. Amber pour with a white head. Citrus hop and malty aromas. Taste filled suit with pronounced pine cans caramel flavored. Good balance, body , and mouthfeel. A solid DIPA.

Ron (3550) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is very fragrant hops. Plenty of pine, resin, and some citrus. Taste is very hoppy, but not overly bitter. Nice oily and malty backbone, but there is no question that this beer is hops first and everything else second. Slightly sweet.
