Marijuana all over this one. In the aroma and it tasted like I had a super skunky nugget in my mouth. More over, the pine and resin is what dominated the aroma, giving it that herbal quality. Taste was piney, with also lots of citrus and bitterness as well.

jflopsu (1084) - New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a clear light rust orange with carbonation. Has a sweet aroma of citrus, pine and caramel. A strong taste of citrus hop, pine, caramel, and some fruits. A mild malt aftertaste.

This was robust and citrusy. Really tasty and aggressive. I could drink a lot of this one. Love it.

Tstamba (677) - Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Deep golden with off white head. Hop forward aroma gets lost in the palate where inadequate malt backbone allows the alcohol to take over... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cheap (5146) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Slight BO smell in there. Clear pale yellow from a tap. Flat and watery but yet a very bitter drink. Probably could be used as cleaning fluid, a little volatile onthe palate. Except for the lack of viscosity, this stuff is quite on style for a double IPA.

callmemickey (4191) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Lightly hazy orange-amber body, medium sized white head and soapy lacing. Grapefruit, orange zest, pine and other citric notes are prominent as well as a moderately sweet pale malt base and some booze. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation, assertive bitterenss, and a big slightly sweet finish.

Clearly one of the best beers for the bang. Also clearly better on draught. If you must drink from the bottle, be sure to pour into a snifter or other similar large-rimmed glass to get the full-on effect. This continues to be one of the brewery’s best sellers.
