arminjewell (6434) - Hastings, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, orange, peach, some vanilla, creamsicle notes, touch of bread, biscuit, herbal. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, pineapple, hints of mango into a bit of grape, some biscuit, bread, touch of vanilla, honey, finishing spicy, very bitter, dry. Nicely, nicely done.

chucklemation (568) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours a hazy amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is fruit and hops. Flavor is sweet fruity hops, perhaps some caramel or vanilla. It’s an interesting flavor for an IPA, but it works well. There is also a bit of bitterness to the finish. Very good.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle… Pours clear and orange with a small, creamy, white head and several fat bubbles. The aroma is juicy and fruity, offering pluots and oranges with traces of resin and vanilla. The orange and vanilla nuances play well together and become reminiscent of a Creamsicle. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is a hop-driven, heavily bitter medley of citrus and stone fruits – pluots and oranges come to mind. Raspy, bitter, dry finish. Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed!

wmubronco1992 (640) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy apple cider color. Medium sized off white head. Big Pine aroma. Lots of classic hop bitterness with just enough sweet picked up on the back end. Good lingering bitter in the finish. Good lace. Good solid IPA that I would drink again.

ChiGuy68 (426) - Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz bottle. It poured a hazy shade of amber with a frothy off white head that left rings of streaky lacing. Malt over hop on the nose but this brew ain’t hop shy on the tongue. This is one easy drinking 8.0 IPA.

"An inclusive immoral ale with an impulsive ignorant hop bite"...what? I deduct points for nonsensical commercial descriptions. I’m not sorry. 12 oz. bottle supplied by WillRunForBeer at my pad. Thanks! To long-stemmed tulip, it pours a dark orange with which a a whitish-ringed head barely a finger in length stood. Aromas of asparagus, salted caramel, pumpkin meat, wet cardboard, and mildew. Tastes the same with the addition of orange peels, cucumber, coconut oil, seawater, and DME. Has a slight minerality by swallow, accompanied by table sugar and American yeast. Moderately chewy. Can’t say I was much of a fan, but I’d try again if the opportunity arose.

Bottle. Pours orange brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, wet cardboard and a touch of citrus. Flavor has the caramel and some grapefruit and mango.

ebone1988 (263) - Wyoming, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Aroma is sweet sweet hops, then malt and a butterscotchness to it. Appearance is darker amber, white head. Taste is the same as smell, some hop bite but then a weird butterscotch/ caramel flavor to it, which is interesting. Mouthfeel is expected, carbonation is medium, sticky, standard. Overall, it’s solid.
