Pours murky brownish orange with a thick off white head. The nose is light pine, big floral nose, some resinous skunk notes and peaches to boot. The taste is odd, but good. It's pretty balanced for an ipa. Good medium high bitterness with medium sweetness. The texture is sticky, the body is heavy and the finish is long.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice, slightly hazy light copper coloured body with a hint of golden notes and a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of resin, pine, pineapple, flowers and a very pungent kick of passionfruit - very nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy hop flavour with a little light malt noticeable, a hint of rye and very dry herbal notes - with not much of a finish at all. Aftertaste shows pungent hops, but not much else and too little malt for a long finish - decent. Overall, a good hoppy beer with a lot of different hop notes, but not enough malt for a complex beer nor a prolonged finish - decent, but I was expecting better, especially from the area and for the price! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Texas Liqour in Carlsbad, California on 19-March-2013 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 23-April-2013.

Pours reddish gold with a thick white head. Aroma is mostly miss tropical fruit with little bits of pine, citrus peel and maybe some rye. Flavor is definitely all hop bitterness. Mostly pine and grapefruit. Some stone fruit sweetness and bready malt tries to balance, and almost does through the middle, but never actually gets there because a huge kick of resin bitterness finishes the sip. Alcohol coming through a bit at the end as well. Good beer.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks Austin! Deep ruby red pour with nicy fluffy lasting white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of grapefruit, orange slight Summit hops with onion, garlic, slight dank notes, hints of orange peel as well. Taste is a mix of sweet grapefruit juice, orange, pineapple, some slight acidic fruit notes, into a touch of onion but restrained, nice pine and dank notes go into caramel, toffee, finish with some spice, earth, and a slight herbal note but not in a bad way, bitter finish. Nicely executed.

Hazy orange pour with a nice white head. Really enjoyable pine, grapefruit, and orange aromas. A bit perfumey. Some sweet bread notes, mild tropical fruit, and a hint of grass. The flavor is a bit bitter and maybe even boozy. However, there are good fruit notes. Lots of grapefruit and orange, some light melon and tropical fruit, and peach. Nice pine and some hints of grass.
