jdb288 (472) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Fresh can. Pours clear gold with tall white head. Aroma is aggressively citrus. Nice amount of grapefruit and orange in this one with some lemon notes. Sweet caramel and toffee in the background. Maybe a little too sweet here and syrupy. Not bad though. I’d go back for another.

Terminus (3214) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Can-age unknown. Pours slightly hazy dark orange with a ncie fluffy off-white head and awesome lacing. some alcohol legs as well, as this is over 9%. nose is big resin, pine, woody character with hints of citrus. This tells me this beer maybe a bit on the old side however, it does not smell oxidized. flavors are very much like the nose-pine, resin with a nice sweet malt backbone. not overly malty, but has a good sweetness to balance the onslaught of resin and pine in the hop bill. however, this is definately an old-skool style IIPA-seems its using all C hops. Long resinous and grapefruity finish with lingering notes of pine/wood. very firm almost harsh bitterness however, the alcohol is not detected at all. This is a resinous hop bomb! I like the idea, just needs a few tweeks and i would be all over this one!

Nero55 (627) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Cloudy dark copper with large off white head and nice lacing. Aroma of resinous hops and strong caramel. Medium body with strong resinous hop bitterness upfront, some caramel notes, and an astringent bitter finish. Hop bitterness is overpowering, astringent, and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste.

Malaclemys (360) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours copper with frothy off white head. Aroma of caramel, resin, herbal hops. Taste is very bitter with notes of grain, caramel and nut. Medium body with a long lasting bitter finish. It reminds me of the lasting flavor of PTC paper.

A fantastic end of floral hops and malty smoothness. I've really enjoyed this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Can. Clean, brown pour. Nice hoppy (citrus and pine) aroma with a slightly sweet essence as well. Not overly resiny, but still medium mouthfeel. A bit bitter starting midpalate through finish. Citrus is somewhat muted in the flavor.

erickok (3414) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 11, 2014
Red body, white head. Strawberry and grassy hops, resin, dough sweet malts as backup. Punchy taste, very nice but not layered. (On tap at Craft Pride)

degbert (1061) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Can. Pours a dark orange-amber with a high, cream-colored, pillowy head. Nose is pungent mint, camphor, spruce, and geranium. Intense eucalyptus hops bitterness on the tongue, with a spritzy overtone of tangerine and pomelo. Bitterness lasts through a long, long finish. Intense.

Cavie (3746) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Tap at T&P. pours a very cloudy dark orange to red color. Ring of light head. Aroma is sweet, sappy, citrus, candied sugar and hops. Flavor is also very hoppy, sappy, dry, earthy and wood bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2013
12 ounce can. A thick creamy beige head lasts a long time and leaves cool lacing. The beer is brown copper and opaque. I smell tropical fruit and rich caramel malts. First taste is of big bitterness in the tropical and passion fruit flavors. The malts are bready and yeasty. The big bitterness remains and is aggressive. There is also a lot of sweetness under that but it is hop forward. Those hops are unique, too. Tasty stuff.
