A great thanks to tectactoe. It pours a vibrant sunny orange color with a thick lasting head. A very distinct aroma comes off this. A big hop presence along with a fruity pine scent. Very unique. The taste is very similar to the smell somehow. It is extremely unique. You could pick this beer out of a crowd of IPAs. Very drinkable. Honestly I want to drink it all day. The taste is just so fresh and clean. Very good and one of the better IPAs Iíve had in a long time.

500ml bottle pours a yellow amber color without much head. Bottled 12/6/14. Mellow hop profile. A little noticeable alcohol harshness.

Many thanks to Steve for providing the bottle! Has a glowing orange color, with a soon collapsing, bubbly head. Got an intense, fruity nose, with lots of juicy oranges, among herbs and glazed malts. The orange yields a glue like aspect, as well as prickly kiwi notes, with a resinous impact, blending well into the sweeter smells. Taste is more herbaceous than the nose revealed, with a gentle influence of fresh cut grass, balanced by pine and wooden, slightly biscuity malts. On top of that settles the orange fruitiness, with lots of white peel being noteable, while an enjoyable hop bitterness becomes visible, getting easily balanced by the earthy malts and a lower, well fitting carbonation, which provides a very smooth mouthfeel. The present malt backbone gets joined by a slick, semi dry kiwi punch, among chunks of grapefruit during the finish, pulling the beer into a hoppier direction. Amazingly balanced, easy drinkable double IPA, with an ever evolving, gentle hop character.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Amit. Cloudy yellow-orange with a white head. Rather stale fruity hops aroma - still quite pleasant though. Flavor has some sweetish malt, stale hops and pretty strong and slightly harsh bitterness. Medium-bodied. Hope Iíll get to try it fresher someday.

Bottle dated 7/31. Pours a slightly brownish amber with one finger of white head. Aroma is very nice considering the age of the bottle: mango, grapefruit, light scallions, weed, orange peel, honey. Taste is crisp orange and honey with some sweet malts and mango. Lightly boozy finish. Low bitterness, low carbonation. Very full and silky in the mouth. Excellent.

Lightly hazed orange pour with creamy white head. Aroma is sweet malt, abv, and citrus. Sweet caramel malt, abv, along with a dry finish on the flavor. A very nice warmth on this beer. Medium body with good carbonation. Very nice

madvike (3010) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle - Cloudy golden pour with a huge foamy white head. Nose is honey, melon, dank onion and garlic, and tropical fruit. Sweet, sticky malt in the taste, with huge stinky dank hops and a bready backbone that comes through on the finish. Long hoppy finish with ample sweetness. Some boozy warmth peeks through, but itís not overbearing. Thick and oily, with mild carbonation. A little much for my tastes, but pretty good for the style.

Absolutely awesome beer, reminds me of Another One flavor wise, but much more dank with hops. I have nothing bad to say about this beer, if you can find it, it is a must try.
