Smells of pine needles and some orange zest. Nice balanced flavors. Just the right amount of bitterness. Mmmm

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Pours a brilliant amber topped by big sticky off-white head. Smells very yummy, lots of pine, citrus, papaya, and toffee fill my nostrils. Full resinous hop presence in the flavor. Notes of tangerine, pine, and mango. Very good stuff.

Bottle. Pale copper with small white head. Aroma of floral and pine hops. Medium body with slight malt sweetness upfront with some notes of nuttiness and a a piney hop finish.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - pours burnt orange with a nice head and good lacing. The aroma was promising but it was just too dry for my taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours from bomber a beautiful golden apricot color with a full, creamy froth. Head retention is good and leaves a thick downy lacing. Aroma is both sweet caramelized malts and freshly picked citrus hops. Wow, I mean wow! The flavours start off sweet and chewy to almost sticky malt goodness before the hops enter with a smooth blend of grapefruit hop bitterness, hints of floral hops and pine hop bitterness. What A lovely beer, and the screen print on the bottle is awesome, hop cone with grapefruit innards. Cool!

Poured from the 22. Aroma is typical ipa, as is flavor. I accidentally left the second half out all night, damn. But it was still great the next day. So, nothing special, but pretty good.

She’s a simple brew. Take hops, add hops and then finish with more hops. Bitter and dry, did mention hops? Hops is predominant. It’s about hops. Hops. HOPS! But in juice form.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Floral hop aromas. Flavor is just a bit too much on the sweet side for my tastes--seems to favor the malt over the hops. There are the usual pine-bitter and citrus flavors at work. Quite a bitter finish overall.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An overall average double IPA, it doesn’t have a particularly high ibu rating, and it isn’t as citrusy as the label would make one believe.

Draft: pour was amber with frothy white head, aroma of hops, citrus, taste was mostly hops with some citrus, solid but no real balance...probably was their intent.
