Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazed golden with a smallish head. Some funk in the aroma with some fruit. Very nice aroma but the flavor falls a notch short of it. Grapefruit, pale malts. Tart. Nicely done.

Can shared by Dreadnaught33. Thanks Jonathan.
The beer is light orange and slightly hazy with a tick, white head. The aroma offers hops, spicy malt, onions/vegetables (in a positive way). Earthy may be the term for which I am searching. The aroma is superior to the flavor, though the flavor is certainly enjoyable. Great feel. Easy to drink. Orange zest with a tasty malt backbone. Could definitely throw back multiple cans of this. Recommended.

Loved it! Just perfect for a double. Pours a hazy Smokey orange. Smells friuty and floral. Goes in smooth with a strong bite that only a true ipa lover can understand. This is arguably the best ipa ever!

Gift from BC4M. Thanks! Citrus hop aromas mixed with a little biscuit. Herbal hop flavors with a little citrus mixed in. Overall a very good IPA.

Can form recent canning. It is weaker than the shewolf i was drinking, thats for sure. Round taste, fruity and malt,y, not too much distinct hop flavors, the malt dominates. The finish is sharp and bitter which saves it to a point but this one isnít jivin with me.

Thanks to Bill for bringing this one over from the States for me.
Poured from a 12oz can into a tulip to an almost clear gold colour with a frothy white head that soon thinned.
Lots of floral and citrus hops on the nose allied to pine and a little grass.
Similar flavours on the palate more piney than the others and quite a bitter finish but a little sweet malts take the edge off this aspect and makes for a well balanced beer!
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation - spot on in fact!
A really tasty DIPA and would I would happily drink again!

Pours a hazy golden orange with a rather quick diminishing 1 finger white head. Aromas of slight citrus and pine. Flavors are well balance of sweet and bitter. Hops in the aroma arenít as there as I would have wanted. A nice ipa that lacks in aroma and mouthfeel.

Can in Breck with friends and family. Poured a golden orange with a small white head and a ton of floaters. Smell is tropical fruits, grapefruit, light pine, grass, and a hint of caramel. Taste is sweet fruits, tangerine, pine, and malt with a moderately bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Very bitter and somewhat unbalanced, but overall, a pretty good DIPA.

Can from a trade on BA. The old label seemed miles better, though this has a zine-like appeal on some level. Very attractive pour, moderately cloudy deep orange with a bright gleam at its core and a really wicked silky head. Nose is pretty heady, almost so much that itís perfumey. Super sweet, and needs some bitters to cut the florals. Nice mouthfeel, perhaps a touch slick. And the taste, while very inviting and bright, could also use a bit more balance to the overwhelming juicy and sweet notes. More bitter please, but still fun.

An ugly light orange brew. Little to no head. Big chunky floaties in the glass. Light sweet-musty aromas. Flavor is sweet and citrusy. A little floral hoppiness. Drying finish. Flavors are very muddled. Rather dissapointing.
