This monster of an India Pale Ale will make you pucker up! Loaded with high-alpha US grown hops and enough malt backbone to balance the intense bitterness. Dry hopped and wicked strong to terrorize your taste buds.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a cloudy orange with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong pine, dank, tropical fruit. Medium mouth, pineapple, dank, citrus, nice bitterness, very nice.

Draft at Three Penny, pours a hazy golden orange with frothy and large white head. Notes of orange hop, grain, honey, butt funk, oat and pine. She’s a pretty dirty tasting girl with a lot of bitterness. Medium bodied. Sweet smell but the booze isn’t too noticeable. It’s ok, but I miss the old days. Lacks any tropical quality

Bottle released 1 day ago. Dark orange with a cream head. Dank hops, pine and grapefruit, more of a candied malt balance than expected. Bitterness on the finish with moderate carb. Pretty much awesome all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2013-02-22 - tasting hosted by blankboy, with gregclow, jercraigs and mabel - bottle c/o blankboy. Hazy amber-gold, some tiny floaties, smallish off-white rocky head. Aroma is a bit catty, some tropical fruit - acidic, like the fruit wasn’t quite ripe, definite alcohol presence. Taste follows, a bit milder, less boozy - decent, liked the aroma more. Average body, astringent, not all that solidly carbonated, medium-length finish, a little dry acidity in the aftertaste ...

On tap in a flute/pint. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and slightly citrusy hops with a lot of caramel and pale malts. Flavor too light on the hops and too strong on the malts. Average texture. A decent beer but cannot compare to other Vermont IPAs.

Pleasant surprise additions to Blind Tiger VSK night. pours hazy yellow orange with nice bug nose of hoppy goodness. Tastes of grapefruits, mangoes, tree bark, pine sol, dank hops, caramel, and earthy. Pretty heavy bodied DIPA and its bitter and not overly sweet. with alcohol warming on finish.

pour at home thanks to adnielsen aka pussypete aka catman197. pours a nice reddish orange, with a decent white head. aroma is distorted because i’m drinking it out of a mason jar as big as my head, but i get resiny hops and pine mainly. the grapefruity flavor belies the booze, and the finish is bitter but not overly so. all around an enjoyable experience

Bottle @ Greg’s palace courtesy of JBPortland. Thanks Josh! Pours a bit hazy yellow orange appearance with a cream colored head. Huge grapefruit creamy, mango, pineapple, a bit dank aroma. A bit sweet and somewhat goopy malty but full of candy, pineapple, mango, and other tropical fruits. A bit strong on the booze on the finish but enjoyable. Cheers Until Next Time!
