Pours a hazy orangeish brown. Herbal, resiny aromas of citrus and fresh hops. Same in the mouth, lots of hop aroma but not too much aggressive bitterness. Nicely balanced... and strong in the ways of the force. Quite a lot of viscosity in the mouth. I’m no IPA expert, but this was tasty.

Quite murky and cloudy brown in appearance with a nice beige to orange head. Aroma is very fruity, hoppy, citrus, oranges, malty, floral and has some tangerine there. Flavour starts off being quite malty and a little bit sweet before the hops kick in where there is a hop explosion with tropical fruitiness and some toffee. Getting some nice caramel flavours and there is definitely some lime and tangerine there also with a quite strong bitter finish.

PorterPounder (6390) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Quick ’N Save - 1 Pt. .9 fl oz bottle. Murky, medium brown pour, soapy white head, decent lacing. Aroma of fruit salad, some molasses, a bit of pipe tobacco. Flavor is similarly accented, more sweet than bitter, molasses, cake mix sweetness, ripening vegetable notes. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Interesting to say the least, more like a dopplebock than an IPA.

wlajwl (4787) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Aroma is yeast, citrus, complex tropical fruit and a hint of hop resin. The flavor is citrus, fruit, grapefruit, light pine needles, hop resin, malts and a very tangy/bitter finish.

beerfest5 (1206) - Cloneen, IRELAND - DEC 29, 2014
750mL bottle poured into a tulip, interesting deep orange to brown color with a bright white head. Big citrus(duh) aroma of freshly cut oranges or I guess tangerines based on the label, some tropical fruit and maybe some ginger in there. Taste is mostly tangerine citrus, some grapefruit and mandarin oranges, overcuts any genuine hop flavour. Overall an interesting idea that I would think would be more popular, but not something I would go back to.

Well, sometimes you just shouldn´t drink when you are sick lying in your bed. This one is definitely high quality but offered me just bitterness, some old plums and a bit of skunk towards the end. My fault to try that one the wrongest time you can imagine.

McTapps (5926) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from trade with Meilby - thank you, Kenni. The beer has got a hazy milky dark brown colour with an steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of hops, malt, barley, licorice and pine forrest - wonderful! Taste of intense hops, barley, pine, woods, soap, wine, spruce and citrus fruits. Finishes off like a big lemon tree full of sweet and ripe lemons, combined with some dry spruce character. Big beer! Fully enjoyed it.

Reddish-Orange Pour with big orange-tan head. Resiny Perfumed Citrus Nose. Bitter Resiny front, medium body with an interesting texture and Oily slightly malty yet sourish soft finish. expected because of the bergamot and other added ingredients Pleasant Beer interesting texture and palate. Interesting use of ingredients but similar to many of the Stone one-offs its a bit much!

Tsekouratos (543) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - OCT 26, 2014
Dark orange color, very hazy, with a huge thick white head. Hopy aromas of tangerine, citrus, some orange, maybe some spices. Bitter taste with citrus, lemon, orange, mango, tangerine, some spicy notes from the rye, and maybe some dankness. Nice aftertaste, long. Body was medium but carbonation was a bit too high! Still a nice brew!

Bottle pour dark brown copper with thick tan head. Nose mostly dank hop and caramel malt. Faint citrus. Taste grapefruit bite up front then floral sweetness. I get some of the mandrian then the dank hop returns mid palate
