Fun name. Fun can. Aggressive hop profile and big sticky sweet body. Would love a little more fruity hops but that’s just where my taste has gone these days. Finish is requisite bitter pine.

Tap@ McNellies - Tulsa: clear copper brown with a fluffy off white head. Sweet notes of floral hops and caramel. Thin body which is nice compared to so many thick syrupy 2 IPA’s. Musty hop flavors with a bitter trailer. Nice!

Bottle. Poured an amber color with a frothy head. Aroma was a nice blend of caramel and hops. Flavor is even better; nice sweetness and hippiness. Caramel, fruity and earthy.

500mL can, sent from OKBeerFan (thanks a lot, Matt), pours a dark copper with a large beige head. Aroma brings out a great quality of resinous hops, a little wood and some caramel biscuity malt. Flavour is potent and wonderfully balanced, with truckloads of resinous hops, some pine, a little wood, and just enough caramel bready malt. Couldn’t really be better balanced. This is a wonderful top-class IIPA.

DrunkSanta410 (810) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Tap at the patriarch, OKC. Amber pour, nice lacy white head. Aroma is floral hops, piney, dank, a bit of resin and hints of tropical fruit. Taste is smooth, piney, light sweetness, well balanced. Fantastic beer. Smooth palate, medium carbonation. Fantastic, could be a top 50 DIPA I n my opinion. Comparable to a Lacumbre Elevated.

Homer321 (3959) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Can thanks to okbeerfan. Nose is moderate to high in Pune and medium-low citrus. A very light malt sugar note in the nose taste is immediately butter but not pithy, then switches it up with a ton of citrus and orange marmalade in your mouth. Not much pine resin in the flavor. Mid palate is lightly sweet. Finished with a bit of alcohol but not too much. Expected at 8%. Overall a very delightful DIPA.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2015
Can via Jess P. Pours a medium orange/amber. Decent amount of head. Aroma slightly resinous, some citrus character as well. Body somewhat lively, with a slight resinous bitterness. Never would’ve guessed the ABV, this is very smooth.
