Bottle from a transAmerican trade with Ryan, RAGE brother. Beautiful pour. Nice, fluffy white head. Strong and complex aroma -- fresh hops. Caramel, pine, citrus. Finish is long and sweet. Very well balanced. Great lacing. In the same league with Two Hearted (and thatís really saying something, as that might be my favorite beer). Fairly light bodied, in a good way. A great one.

A fresh bottle poured into a globe.

A - Pours deep amber orange with a nice pillow one finger tall white head, dissipating down to next to nothing, leaving spotty lacing down the glass.

S - Tons of citric hops up front with a nice lightly toasted caramel malt core. A bit grassy with some sweetness creeping in as it begins to warm up. Very nice stuff.

T - Nice citric hop bite up front is balanced out well with a nice mix of caramel malt sweetness and crisp tropical fruits. Finish is a bit dry with some nice lingering hop bitterness. Much better this time, still one of my all time favorites but I still prefer elder to the pig.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Nice light, refreshing, feel on the pallet. Finish has some lingering bitterness but nothing too over the top.

D - Very high. Blind pig has very good balance with plenty of drinkability left over. I love this stuff but I still prefer elder a bit more.

ineedbeer (734) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Poured from a 500 ml bottle dated 09/02/3014. Aroma is very hoppy with a nice tropical fruit and citrus character balanced by some pine resin. Light cracker and biscuit malt notes. Pours a fairly clear, golden color with a hint of orange and copper hues. Moderately sized, somewhat thick, white head. Moderate lacing and small legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a medium light cracker and pale malt character. Moderately strong bitterness with a rather dry finish. Some moderately strong hop flavor with some citrus and pine resin. Faint tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice IPA with some great hop notes. Really nice, light but balanced malt profile that adds just a touch of complexity.

Great aroma of hops, slightly floral with citrus undertones. Great looking with an amber color and a medium white well laced head. Extremely good balanced taste of hops, weed with dry feel and a distinctive weed aftertaste

500ml bottled on 8/14/14. Golden yellow body. Aroma contains notes of pineapple and (oddly enough) marijuana. Flavor shifts to pine, cantaloupe, and earth. Balanced and interesting, will buy again.
