Thisis12ptfont (781) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Faint hop and citrus aroma. Copper/orange in color with a thin foam rim. Fair bitterness with some bready/biscuit malt backbone. Slight caramel and alcohol burn on the finish. Overall, nothing special. Just a standard IPA. I’d give this a B- rating.

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
Almost clear, dark golden in color, topped by an off-white head of moderate size. Pine cones, resins and hop pellets in the aroma, some malty hints and orange too. The flavor is piney and resiny, mostly keeping the malts outside. Full body, lightly warming and full bodied with a long bitter finish. Nice and tasteful, well worth a try. 130817

Pours clear deep golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, caramel and pine. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long caramel and bitter finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

mcberko (5352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy dark orange with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out big resinous hops, dry fruity notes, and dry caramel malts. Flavour brings out truckloads of resinous hops, dry zesty pine and a big caramel malt backing. Extremely hoppy and malty at the same time. Big bodied but without much residual sweetness. Great meaty IIPA.

Aurelius (3890) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Slightly foggy, bright orange with a filmy head. Powdery, woody-tart aroma -- very nice and different, a little boozy. Unfinished flavoer, grassy and a little homebrew-y. Boozy, and the ABV was unmasked. Quick finish, woody. On tap, Angels Trumpet, Phoenix AZ.

Hazy amber beer, time cream coloured head. Palate is a little viscous and slightly soft. Semi dry. Sweetish malt base, has a caramel streak. Resinous pine hops. Touch of grass and citrus, mostly orange. A little hop spice and aniseed in the semi dry finish with also reveals bittersweet pine.
