BVery (9172) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle via trade with Andrew - thanks! Slightly hazy orange pour with a soapy white head. Aroma is pine resin and mild caramel malt. Little bit of citrus also creeps in on the taste. The finish could be a little bit more balanced but it’s far from being super bitter. Quite enjoyable.

Pours copper orange with a quick disappearing white head. Strong citrus aroma. A good balance of citrus and hops make it a great tasting beer.

One of my favorite ipa’s. The mad tom has a strong bite to start and finishes with a strong citrus flavor

waggerlager (5) - - APR 5, 2016 does not count
Don’t understand the hype. Pours nicely but the over-the-top hops just take over and make it hard to get through more than one

sulawang (896) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2016
Visual: Unfiltered. Pours clear copper brown with a foamy 1cm head, sticky lacing, thin layer of hazy retention, lots of steady big bubble streams. Nose: toffee barley malt (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: thicker-crisp-silky Mid-palate: toasted caramel, micro-CO2 creamy, soft pine, orange, (lvl-5-sweetness), chewy toffee barley malt, tangy-zingy Finish: hoppy controlled bitterness dryness, residual caramel malts. Summary: Lovely cream-silky mouthfeel with an excellent balance of flavours without being overly bitter hopped. Smooth throughout, a winner.

Ktwse (3420) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2016
Pours clear amber with low white head. Aroma of light resin, pine, citrus, hints of tropical fruit. Taste is rich resin bitter, somewhat one-dimensional, bitter finish. Light, smooth body with average carbonation.

njnut (402) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Pours a light orange timed amber with a slight haze. White billowy head and lace. Aroma was pine, outdoorsy air with flowers, slight orange and malt. Taste was more on the line hop tilt, sweet malt and a bit of pepper Esp in the finish. Very crisp and the perfect beer for the first outdoor beer of the year. Well done.

cmacklin (650) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 12, 2016
341ml bottle at The Keg in Lethbridge. Pours a clear, golden orange with an average, creamy, long lasting, white head that laces. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus and light pine. Sweet, crisp, citrus flavour of grapefruit, pine and caramel malt with a dry, bitter, hoppy, resiny finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and average carbonation. Pretty good.

Light bronze clear with white foam. Spice, heath in the aroma. Hint of citrus, toffee with malt and strong spicy bitterness in the aftertaste

QcBeer (85) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2015
En canette Fraîche... Goût légèrement différent qu’en bouteille, au nez, une remarque de citron herbacé avec une pointe de résine. De couleur orange/pale avec une légère effervescence qui maintient cette petite dentelle blanche sur la parois du verre! Un goût assez sec et houblonné vient finir tout doucement dans une fine amertume! Une bière bien réussite!

Toujours aussi bonne en bouche, arômes frais agrumés, légèrement floraux. Belle amertume légèrement résineuse.
