A fantastic IPA. Aromas are musky hops, and cat pee. Beautifully balanced herbal, green hop flavor with a touch of sweetness. Excellent.

Pours copper with white head. Smell is sweet hops, resin, citrus and malt. Taste is earthy bitter hops, resin, citrus and a great non over-powering malt backbone. Pretty complex. Light body, medium carbonation.

Ibrew2or3 (7158) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2015
12oz can pours with a crystal clear copper body that supports a thin near white head. The aroma offers up a sprinkle of light malts and roasted malts with bigger notes malt sweetened earthy to spicy hops. In the background are mild off notes of sweet dark fruity esters and caramel candy. The taste hits with spicy to pine to earthy hop bitterness first and then quickly into modest levels of malts and more resiny hoppiness. Pretty nice flavor.

Excellent IPA. Not much else to say. Itís exactly what it advertises on the can. Tons of citrus fruit, and resiny hop aroma. Taste is awesome. Huge punch of hop bitterness with a ton of citrus and pine. So delicious I canít stop drinking it. Killer stuff!

@ NBC: No date given. Please put a brew date on all of your hop heavy beers. Light and bright chestnut with a film of tan head that stays. Aroma is orange and lemon with a considerable chalk/sand/mineral note which is not unpleasant, but enough to make me scratch my head as to where this is going. Mildewed hay and a touch of very light caramel. Body is medium and gritty-oily-syrupy with a medium-light carbonation (rather light given the heaviness of the fluidís mouthfeel). Flavor is resinous hemlock bitterness that lingers, floral, bit of lemon, moderate caramel. A rather dark IPA with some caramel notes that donít overpower, but a bitterness that is excessive and a weird mineral content in the nose make it difficult to fully appreciate this balance. The bitterness really grates on me after a while...

A very basic, assertive IPA. Well balanced and unpretentious. Pine bitterness defines this beer.

jdjuice (354) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2015
Fruity aroma that doesnít show up much in flavor. Hop forward, citrusy hops, a little lighter backbone than usual, but quite pleasant. A nice easy drinking IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 This IPA is everything that it advertises. A nice citrus pine aroma with whiffs of bready malts. Balanced finish.
