Copper looks. Thin white head with short lived lace. Medium bodied. Caramel malts and dry hard hops of winter. As bitter as duck for the first couple of sips. Then it goes down smoothly. Good alcohol level masked by IBUs and an excellent floral aroma that lasts till the end. A solid double IPA. Very affordable too.

TXBadger (1250) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Had this while it was Pro-Am 2012, reviewed from notes: Pours a nice clear amber color with white head. Pine, citrus, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Lots of hop resin on the palate. Very nice.

Smell of big fruit citrus, appearance is cloudy amber with off white head, taste is slight sweet in the beginning with caramel and hoppy bitterness kicking in that lingers.

jkwood04 (3792) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 13, 2014
12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a cream-colored head. Aroma of floral and resinous and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty standard double IPA.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
docsteigs (523) - Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Appearance is clear medium to dark copper with lacy proteinaceous head with good retention. Hops dominate nose with pine predominant with some background citrus and earth. Taste is well balanced between bitterness and malt. Hops presence is experienced primarily through bitterness as opposed to flavor. Mouthfeel is rich but not syrupy and appropriate to style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 7/20
dlihcsnatas (274) - Texas, USA - APR 2, 2014
Dark Amber brew with lots of pinish hop aroma. Thick beer that had the hop flavor that was expected but too much sweetness from the malts. Seemed almost like it should have been allowed to ferment longer to take down the sweetness. For the price would like to have had better and a bottle rather than the can.
