Super enjoyable. Had a quick sample when picking up dinner. Copper pour with white foam, lovely hop aroma with a huge hop punch that is juicy and a hint of oil/soap. It?s like Victory?s Hop Ranch, just done right.

Orange with frothy white head. Grapefruit, mild citrus, mild caramel notes, and floral notes. Full bodied, silky, flavor like aroma. Fantastic balance, medium bitterness front to back, nice tongue zing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy sticky head. The aroma is hops upfront, tropical fruits, pineapple, grapefruit. The flavour follows suit with caramel malts show in up to help balance things out. A solid, sessionable brew, even if its a little predictable.

Bottled 2/22/11 A: Pours a dull apricot ale. Single finger off white foam caps the beer. The head recedes on a couple minutes and then a thick sheet of the same resides. Then, the lacing is spider-web like. S: Wow! Hop-tasm! Theres lots of fruity hops around the nose here. Grapefruit, lemon rinds, mint, pine. Hints of cardboard (oxidized?). Good, bready background. As the beer warms a bit, some cat piss comes thru. T: The IPA is very much bitter - good IMO, unfortunately this isnít complimented with flavor. This is like chewing aspirin. Ouch. Having a tough time with this. M: Medium to heavy with moderate carbonation. Drys the palate on the finish. O: Unfortunately I donít find the balance very good. I admittedly enjoy a more bitter IPA, but I also like some flavoring hops in there as well. The nose here is also on the feline side. Serving type: bottle 04-13-2011

Gold. Cloudy. Decent 1cm white head which persists. Pine and citrus aroma, grapefruit, some caramel, a little grassy. It smells fantastic. Slightly dry up front, bit grapefruit kick with malt underneath, bitterness persists right through a little burst of caramel and pine. Really good

Solid IPA but at the moment Iím on a course to dip into some seriously over-stylized brews outside of the IPA realm. Will revisit in the spring.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Golden color with a huge beige head. Aroma of citrus and some caramel. Pretty dry and bitter, not sweet or sticky, drinkable.

Bottle at home thanks to wade. Aroma is grapefruit, piney. Flavor is resiny, hoppy with a nice perfectly bitter finish. Dank

DrewFace (482) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Hazy pale orange color. Lightly danky and citrusy hop aroma. More danky, grassy and citrusy character in the flavor. Very well balanced.

Botella de 65 cl en el lupulo. Mayo de 2013. Buena Ipa aunque no tanto como la Wipe Out. No obstante bastante recomendable y para repetir cuanto antes.
