Copper with white head. Grassy pine aroma. Yes 11% and still grassy. A lot like smells like freedom (DC Brau). Onion grass pine medium malt. Delicious.

Tap at Mackenzies. Wasn’t sure what style it was when I ordered, was listed as a "special ale". Pour is identical to the picture on the page. That is a better description than I can give. Nice fruity hops, orange and grapefruit and all of those. Solid but unspectacular.

radagast83 (5376) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2015
4oz pour at Churchkey. Poured a slightly hazy golden orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was lots of heavy tropical fruit notes, strong sticky malts. Flavor has plenty of pine resin, mango. Very drinkable. The immediate outside of the bar smelled like weed. This? This smelled like a nice tropical fruit beer.

Draft at Bricks. Pours dark orange with decent white head and lacing. Nose is nice citrus and pineapple. Taste is dank, citrus, dank, alcohol. Lasting bitterness in the aftertaste.

Beerman6686 (5053) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2015
This poured a darker orange with a white head. Aroma was of lots of booze, sweet candied malt, and dank resinous hops. Flavor similar, very bitter, hot, and sweet, lots of dank hops.

Pour on tap at Red Cow, clear orange pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of big orange, grapefruit, pine, some resinous notes into a bit of melon, mango, slight bready, caramel notes. Taste was a mix of caramel, bread, orange, grapefruit into a bit of pine, resin, some melon, hints of grain, finishing bitter.

andrewje41 (1065) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2015
Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours a bright orange color with a fizzy head. Super piney aroma. Thicker, creamy citrus flavor and a huge hop profile. Slightly bitter finish with a lingering grassy hop flavor. Doesn’t taste as heavy as it is. Overall tasty, but wouldn’t call it great.

markducommun (298) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2015
Golden orange with a light white head. Bubblegum, light mango, heavy resinous nose. Significantly bitter, a good amount of sweetness. Not oily, but really deeply coats the palate. Medium body. Lighter carb. Shorter finish. Quite good.

NachlamSie (2903) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2015
Pint (woops?!) at WoB Cherry Creek. This is a hazy dark copper with a tall white head. Aroma is so dank and nasty it’s ridiculous. There are hardly citrus hints which is weird for the style. I get notes of weed, garlic, onion, rosemary and sage. The palate is full and a little resinous. Pine comes out in the flavor but the garlic, onion and pot characters are front and center. Finish is sticky. Talk about a dank and dirty IIPA, this is it. Well executed.
