Overall, OK, but too many bittering hops, not enough aromatic ones. The aromatic hop notes were nice, however.

Blairgus (3008) - California, USA - MAY 4, 2015
4 May 2015, tap. Gold, clear, no bubbles. Nose is resin hops and some slightly sweet granola malt. Thin/med body and moderately fizzy. Resin hips and mildly sweet granola malt. Not much alcohol. Pretty good.

stevoj (2663) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 29, 2015
102 IBU? Still fairly smooth, deep golden body with a nice silly white head. Hops rule both the aroma and taste (as expected), gives a nice pleasant glow. Lingering hoppiness, although not as much as you’d think

GenkiGonzo (523) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 17, 2015
Draught at Yard House in Waikiki. Incredible punch of citrus hop with a lot of malt behind it. Packs a massive punch.

undsioux7 (835) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2015
Really nice hoppy pine resin and citrus just balanced with the malt. Medium light body. This hit the spot just right and really refreshing and not overly slick for a dipa. Just the right amount of bitterness for me.

UDBeernut (2008) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2015
Drank this bomber after an arduous day of installing shelving. Gawd my arms R sore. This one pours orangy amber. Small hard leaves some lacing. Slight pine and citrus wrapped in a slightly sweet and sticky body. Moderate carb keeps it light.

badhack (382) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 2, 2015
Good IPA with a strong citrus and pine flavor, but also some melon and something a bit wild/weedy.

callmemickey (3422) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Hazy dark orange body, medium to thin off-white head, soapy lacing. Dank, with aggressive pine and resin, some tropical and citric sweetness, a touch of pale malt and booze. Big, with a medium to full body, moderate carbonation, aggressive bitterness, mild sweetness is balanced out sufficiently.
