GIJOE (477) - Monterey, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a thick frothy white pillow of head. Stays a while. Nose is bright, floral radiance. The complexity that explodes on sipping is a befuddling hoppalicious delight. Medium body. Mild carbonation. Hops. Hops. Hops. Hops! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Belmont Station. Colour...slightly hazy golden yellow with a prodigious white head. Nose...opulent, with citrus out the wazoo and pine needle essence galore. Palate...thick, cloying and big ass! Damn this is a big ale!! The whole palate is incredibly coating and never gives an inch in that department! The citrus is intense, but the malt works as prison guard to make sure the citrusy hops don’t bust out over the wall! The mid palate lets the malt show its stuff before the intensely cloying and massively piney finish!!

Aarond (144) - Wilmington, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is piney, orange peel, caramel, resin, and alcohol. Appearance is a nice light amber with excellent clarity. Thin white head that faded rather quickly. Taste is resiny and pine up front, notes of grapefruit pith and orange peel, some caramel and bready malt notes. Finishes kind of hot. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall very well done, very big IPA.

arminjewell (5718) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Pour on tap at GABF, dark orange pour with white head, aroma is big dank, piney, and floral hops, lots of orange peel in there mixing into some grass, hints of caramel, slight earthy tones. Taste is a mix of earth, floral and herbal hops, big dank, onion notes with a hint of pine, slight biscuit, caramel, finishing bitter, a bit boozy.

Big beer, an IIIPA almost. Seems to be a lot of these lately. Pours a dark golden color with a large white head. On tap at Belmont. A fresh fruit aroma, citrus, huge resin. The flavor was orange peel, lemons, caramel, candied fruit, zesty at times, some perfume. Quite big but drinkable. Good beer. Gotta love some Irish being used, even if it is a play on crack.

ElGaucho (2161) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Draft at Mackenzie. Rich aroma akin to a barley wine or American Strong. Hazy dark gold body. Too much rich thickness to leave much lace. Wow flavor. Fairly dry for a 10.4 abv. Very hoppy. Phenomenal.

On draft at the GABF 2013. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Intense piney hop nose with flavors of spruce, citrus and caramel. Intensely bitter lingering finish.

Nice and hoppy
