Steve_0 (2234) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2012
On tap at Vine Street Pub. Pour is golden orange with a one-finger white head and great lacing. Big grapefruit, pine, resin, and dank weed aroma. Taste is grapefruit, orange peel, big pine, weed, caramel, and grass with a heavy bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with high carbonation. Really nice IPA. Well-done.

high_on_hops (552) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUN 23, 2012
On tap. A slightly cloudy gold color with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a great citrus and pine aroma. The same hop notes show up in the flavor, and there is just enough malt to mellow the bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nsquishee (570) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Lots of dry hops, dark orange color, and nice hoppy orange aroma. Very hoppy flavors of resinous hops, citrus, grass, and light malts. Very solid, bold ipa.

drjay44 (2486) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Sampler at Vine Street. Pours a thin off white head, with a bit of lacing, over a clear, copper (SRM 15) body....nose is light pine, grapefruit....taste is light pine, grapefruit, toffee/caramel, with slight floral tones...mouth feel medium, carbonation low. This is a nicely balanced, but thoroughly typical IPA> BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

dnstone (2112) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Solid fruity-dry hop aroma. Poured a cloudy amber in color. Those fruity hop notes carry through the flavor with a bit of an earthy finish. Notes: GABF ’09 visit

Wabowlds (3) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2012 does not count
Tap @ vine street. Pours a cloudy copper. Smell first. Always. Aroma is straight, crisp, weed. Taste is smooth and slightly flowery. Tight resins finish. One of the best beers and one of the best brew pubs in Denver. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Tap @ Vine Street. Transparent light yellow orange appearance with a foamy, off-white head. Huge ganja, resiny, piney aroma. Was this made with the medical shit??? Somewhat grapefruit citrusy but mostly an intense, resiny ganja hoppy flavor. Great one!

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
On tap. Pours with a hazed copper hued body with an off-white head. Aromas are dank, weed, orange, mint and very spicy hops. Flavors are very spicy, dank, fruity, mint tea. Medium bubbles, medium dry. Odd hop profile, and gets a bit too sweet for me as it warms.

Draft at Vine City. Weekend of GABF. Huge floral aroma.  Big smack of piney resiny hops. Awesome beer and great way to start GABF.
