AirForceHops (3515) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 7, 2014
650 ml bottle, purchased at Binny’s Lincoln Park. Mostly clear Amber color with fizzy head. Aroma is light citrus, with abundant amount of pine needles and resin

Flavor is light mango and peach upfront, caramel sweetness through the center with a big strong lingering pine in the finish. Brewers decrepit io in the label is exactly what is delivered here.

deyholla (6989) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a near clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bit of pine and resin with a good amount of sweet grains and a hint of caramel. Flavor is similar with resin up front and sweet grains backing as well as a touch of light fruit.

jh773 (170) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Red-orange, two-finger head. Smell is tropical fruit, candied apple, pine. Strong biscuity flavor that’s quickly overtaken by tangy citrus and pine resin. Dry, bitter finish. Very drinkable.

ccex (961) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2014
22 ox bottle pours a clear orange amber with small soapy off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is all citrus, but not strong. Taste is only slightly bitter with lots of caramel sweetness in the middle before a mildly bitter, almost dank finish. Body is medium with very little carbonation and a soapy mouthfeel. This Swedish-American wanted to be ravaged by this one, but I found it underwhelming, not imperial, and not much better than the average IPA

BlowOffTube (499) - Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Thanks highwine! Taste is good. Pours reddish orange with a white head. Fruit bowl aroma hint of caramel. Melon, grass, some orange and grapefruit peel taste. Medium body with light carbonation. Good mouth feel. Lacking on the hop department but not maybe because of freshness? Not sure when bottle.
