Beerandhockey8 (248) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 13, 2014
From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a hazy orange yellow, with a thick white head. Nose is big hops, floral, citrus, earthy, piney. Taste is very balanced, mix of bitter ans sweet with a light-medium body. For such a big ABV, impressive IPA. Finishessharp, very drinkable and balanced which could be dangerous.

Bottle-I’m not going to add much to here, except that this a fine quality IPA. It helped that I was drinking this after one very bad beer and one disappointing beer in one day. Add to this, we just grilled a fine New York strip with our favorite marinade, it added up to a great way to finish off the weekend. Golden brown color, medium head, nice, but not overwhelming hop aroma. Quite a mix of hop flavors, but still very tasty. Medium bite on the finish. Produce place 6.99

venom666 (541) - Elche, SPAIN - JUN 24, 2015
Slightly hazy orange color with medium white head. Aroma is floral, citrusy and piney, with a good malt backbone. Medium to full body with a really good mouthfeel. Taste follows the aroma, with lots of floral and citrus hops and a piney/resiny backbone. Malts are very present, with a really sweet sugary profile. Aftertaste is its weakeast point, I expected a much more bitter finish from a 90 IBU beer.

On tap at Rogue resturuant in the Portland, cloudy golden yellow with a thin head. Nice hopy, citrus nose. Crisp clean attack. Lots going on. Can definitely tell there’s 7 kinds of hops. Yummy!

Fritz123 (1285) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle from friend’s house. Poured into a snifter. Light orange color with puffy eggshell head and lacing. The aroma was complex hops with ample citrus and pine combined. Lazy summer backyard mowing aroma as well. Taste was up front hop forward with pine and then moderate citrus. Clean and balanced. Malty backbone. Crisp finish.

Plovmand (6913) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle. It pours mostly clear golden with a medium off white head. Aroma is floral hoppy and light perfumed citrus and sweet pale malts. The flavor is sweet floral hoppy with light citrus notes and it has a great malty biscuit backbone.

Abijen (1762) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2015
Prachtig oranje bier met een dikke creme witte kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hops, tropisch en zoet. Smaakt grapefruit, citrus, fruit. Goed bitter. Droog.

ttoadee (925) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Hazy orange pour, thin but steady white head. nose is citrus with a hint of wood. Bittersweet. Middle is creamy malt, bright oranges and tangerines, thin veil of slightly burnt caramel. Finish is quite bitter and long. Masterful beer.

VinegarStroke (338) - Napa, California, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle: slight haze, straw to copper, medium head and good lace. Citrus with a medium intensity and a little darker malt. Dry, not sour and very bitter. Fresh citrusy hop palate with reasonable malt flavor. The palate is hard and lack balance due to the excessive bitterness. Not a beer I enjoy. Once again these guys don’t get the balance right.
