docsteigs (527) - 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

dlihcsnatas (292) - 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.

ttoadee (644) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Bronze pour, thin but resolute head. Nose is caramel and pine. Bittersweet. Coats the tongue. Middle is sweet malt and bright citrus fruit. Finish is LONG bitterness! You donít taste the alcohol but you do feel it.

Floater (1) - - FEB 19, 2014 does not count
Poured from the 1 Pint, 0.9 fluid ounce edition. Appearance is amber to orange in color, cloudy with floaters, decent head that laces the glass through a few sips. Aroma is nice but the taste is hard to figure out and at first seems beyond bitter to chemical/astringent, and then my palate seemed to adjust a little improving satisfaction. Iím a fan of IPAís and this one falls in the middle of it ... better than most Iíve brewed but room for improvement.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle at RBWG 2014, thanks! Pours a near clear amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a syrupy pine note with some resin and a bit of sweet grains underlying. Flavor has a resinous pine note with a touch of grapefruit and a bread backing.

jdb288 (517) - 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. Iíd go back for another.

Terminus (3241) - 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 (720) - 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 (385) - 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
