jbruner (2298) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange from the can with thin lacy white head that sticks lightly. Aroma is sweet citrus up front, odd boozy caramel malt middle, then it falls off instantly. Taste is sweet, citrusy, booze is more hidden but again falls off quick. No real finish except a late burn in your stomach. Too much but at the same time not enough going on, not too great.

Salmoniform (567) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Hazy honey hue with creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is malt, pineapple, ethanol, orange, pine, straw. Mouthfeel is chewy with a full body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a nice hop bitterness in the following and a strong ethanol finish. Overall this wasn’t a very enjoyable IPA. It’s just too disjointed and hot...tastes like a moderate IPA with a shot of vodka poured in.

craftbeerdesign (2175) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2014
On tap at renegade. Deep orange pour with a white head - summit hop onion nose - med to full body with nice citrus and spice forward hop flavors. Bitter and sweet finish with a touch of fruit.

brokephibroke (289) - Mead, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Can with "offensively delicious" printed around the top. Hmmm. Cloudy peach colored pour with fluffy tan head. Piney, citrusy spicy aroma: hints of nutmeg. Bitter with tobacco and some nice smooth backbone. Nice long bitter linger. Good and maybe even better on a long hike.

UncleKorm (788) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Can poured a foggy orange hue w/ small white head diminishing to a ring. Moderate malty aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a bold long lasting bitter finish. Tastes are orange, hay, grass, pine and cantaloupe. Full bodied, balanced mouthfeel and warm finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tide (1765) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Can from Boulder Liquor Mart. Hazy amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, caramel, floral hops, mango, resin, a bit of pine and alcohol. Bitter finish with hops, resin and mango. Excellent imperial IPA.

jgb9348 (4709) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Deep amber coloured body with a copper glow and a thinnish two centimetre tall head. Aroma of tons of hops, pine, resin and a lot of honey and sweetness from fruits. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong rich hoppy flavour with resin and PNW hops the strongest flavours coupled with a distinct honey and caramel sweetness that tags the beer nicely. Aftertaste shows some malt balance, but also some apricot and pear fruit flavours. Overall, a very nice Imperial IPA with tons of flavour and an alcohol that is somewhat hidden, but the sweetness brings out the severity of this beer. I sampled this pint on draught at Publick House with haddon90 on 06-June-2014!

12oz can thanks to robloc303, pours hazy burnt orange with a finger of head. Nose is bready, apricot, candied orange, sweet potato. Taste is syrupy bread, caramel, maple, muddy. Finish is bitter sweet sticky syrup, burnt bread, caramel. This is bad.

Draft at the Publik House. Pours a hazy orange color with no head. Strong, grapefruit aroma with a ton of hops. Amazing brew.

Dogbrick (7973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Sample at the taproom. Hazy dark orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit and malt. Full, chewy body with flavors of fruity hops, grainy malt and pine. The finish is hoppy up front with a lingering grainy malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

From a 12 oz can shared in Breckenridge CO. Pours a hazy deep copper with a thick off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of pine resin, citrus and mango with floral notes. Smooth malty backbone. Medium heavy bodied, high carbonation, bitter finish.
