Fatehunter (1076) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Thin head but good retention, hazy copper colored body. The aroma is all lemon and grapefruit. Bold and standard. The taste is mild at first, almost watery, then building bitterness to the end. Lower carbonation and medium body. A normal IPA in the big world of IPAs.

This beer is in "high" demand for a reason! This is a great beer that doesn't blow your mind with the hops or IBU's! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cstuartj (925) - Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2014
bottle, pours orange red yellow, no head or lacing. no hop nose, smells like a weak malt. attack is thin, not a lot of flavor, finish is very bitter, actually pretty good, dry and clean. too bad the rest of the drinking experience is lame.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Tap at OBF. Pours amber brown with a slight beige head. Aroma is rather floral/citrus. Med body. Flavor is a bit roastier malt than expected, but there’s a lot of citrus and perhaps earthy hop. Hop burn! Finishes almost not dry and quite hoppy/bitter. Good.

Beergeek23322 (2024) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2013
July 2012. 22 oz. bottle. Amber color with a thin white head. There is something with this IPA that throws it off balance. It’s enjoyable and drinkable, but something it doesn’t quite come together.

jgb9348 (4488) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2013
Deep hazy amber coloured body with almost a brown tint and a nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of hops, alcohol, earth, light caramel and a hint of pine. Medium-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour with a pine and grapefruit note, some light caramel and sugar flavours and a good bitterness at the end showing grapefruit and pine. Aftertaste shows a pungent hoppiness with some strong malt notes and a good bitterness. Overall, a nice IPA, not sublime, but good, with a great malt balance and some good complexity. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Portland (downtown), Oregon for US$4.29 a few minutes ago on 11-April-2013 sampled in my hotel room the same day here in Portland.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2013
Creamy-smooth texture with mild carbonation. Nice and foamy head. Deep amber. Very spicy and piney. Dank as well. Grapefruit-like bitterness. More malt forward than most IPAs. Nutty and toasty. Pretty bold IPA, in general. Earthy, wholesome, flavorful.

AmEricanbrew (5522) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Clear dark amber color with ivory sheen. Pine, fruity, spicy, mild dank hop aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Citrusy, caramel flavors with a big drying bitter finish--super hoppy--not bad.

IndianaRed (2184) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2012
On tap at Brewforia, Eagle. Hazy amber/chestnut with a thin tan head. Malty woody aroma and a quite bitter hop bite. Pretty strong at 7% and a lingering papery bitterness at the end.
