orangesol (918) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Picked up a growler of this one for a party on the 4th of July.

A - Pours out hazy light amber orange with a thick, frothy, two finger tall head leaving thick rings of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of dense pine forest, citric hops, a bit of citric fruit, caramel malt, and some light booze.

T - Starts off with a nice light citric hop bite quickly giving way to a mix of pine, grapefruit, and chewy sweet caramel malt. A touch of booze creeps in toward the end but otherwise is undetectable. The finish is a mix of sweetness and light hop bitterness, lingering for a short time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Plenty of hop resin in the feel, lingering through the finish.

O - I drank half the growler in no time flat. I was drinking it so fast I had to slow it down a bit or I wasn’t gonna be able to make it home. The flavors were all there and it was easy going down. Still one of my favorites.

Bottle to flute Pine, spruce, pepper, flowers, resin, grapefruit, and tropical fruit. Hazy light amber with a 3 cm frothy white head that reduces to 1/2 cm quite quickly. Taste is fruit, pepper, pine, grapefruit, resin and lots of bitterness.

Draft pour at Toronado. Pours orange with a thin disappearing white head. Piney hop aroma. Slightly bitter, yet smooth hop flavor with some citrus. Easy drinking double. Good beer here.

sebwaw (24) - POLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Served in shaker. Pours with thick white head, color is deep orange, hazy however. Aroma is nearly perfect, mostly tropical, lots of melon, some passion fruit, mango. There is really a rich mix in that one and its quite intense. Taste is more malty in the beginning, but pine hops quickly emerge at a palate, however, theyre not overwhelming at all. Its extremely well balanced IIPA for me, well-bodied, finish is very solid, but alcoholic to some extent, which lowers drinkability, but I probably dont have fresh batch so it may be a reason. Anyway, its a great IIPA, one of the best Ive ever had from this difficult style.

Picked up a case in Philly.. Wasn’t until I got home saw the brew date was 3+mos old. Still seemed to hold up decently. Nice citrus hop taste and smell, not overly hoppy. Poured usual golden IPA color, not hazy at all. Overall good, would like to try a fresher batch though

Chadski4 (131) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Resin aroma dominates. Large pillowy, white head that leaves long lacing. Citrusy flavors balanced out with a mild malty flavor. Some booziness in the palate.
