Sour honey nose. Classic IPA colour. Rich and meaty feel on the tongue. Sour finish. Fun IPA but maybe too much lingering sourness for some.

Mindwarp (99) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Pours a hazy golden color with a really big head and some lacing on glass. Aroma of citrus and hops with a bit of pine. Taste hops malt pine seems a little dry, bitterness hangs around no real citrus flavor. Overall another good beer from Moylans.

ajnepple (2822) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2015
On tap at Hops & Pie. Bright orange and hazy appearance with a white head. Fresh aroma of citrus and tropical fruits, and light resinous hops. Flavor is medium to heavy zesty bitterness and minimal sweetness. Medium to full body with a pretty clean feel. Nicely done West Coast IIPA.

Masterkush7 (575) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
From bottle. Nice, aggressive nose, pretty burnt orange. Not bad, but far too malty and sticky for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gr0ve (2167) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
750 ml bottle. Deep golden and slightly hazy. Bold hoppy aroma. Also a little ashy and sharp, which I think is because the botle is not particularly fresh. Sharp hoppy bitterness. Quite high IBU level in this one. Body is relatively light given the hops, so this beer comes off as a bitter bomb. Not a bad one though, but a little too sharp for my taste.

Emeister84 (1281) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Aromas of apricot, iced tea, round citrus fruit. Hazy orange with a lasting white head. Off-dry, savory, somewhat strong. Medium-full bodied.
