"Liked Big Daddy, didn’t care for Vendetta IPA, so not sure what to expect here. Overall, not too shabby (though I still prefer Big Daddy). Big, resinous, pine sap and citrus. Malt heavy too with a big body and a lasting finish."

Growler from Central Liquors. Pours with little head, and this was just poured from the keg 20 minutes ago. Golden orange, clear, aroma of orange citrus, apricot and malt. Going to let the rest chill for an hour, may make it a bit crisper. Leaves a light lacing on the glass, head reforms if you give it a hearty swirl. Orange and apricot hints through the aftertaste. Expected a stronger hop force field, but can see where this might appeal to those who like IPAs and IIPAs but not over-the-top-hops. Will buy again, but not at the top of the list.

Transfer from BA review on 4-26-13- Poured from bomber into a snifter glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear copper color with a nice thick and billowy off- white head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of malt with lots of bready and caramel smells. Mixed with this is a good dose of a boozy aroma as well as some moderately strong pine and grapefruit hop. Taste – The taste begins with a big malty taste upfront with a more lightly hoped flavor of a grapefruit hop variety. As the taste advances some tropical fruit sweetness comes to the tongue with it at the same time being counterbalanced by some flavors of a more resinous pine hop entering as well. Toward the end of the taste, the grapefruit citrus hop resurges and is joined by some hop flavors of a more earthy variety. The combination of hop and malt are met, at the very end, by a rather light alcohol taste, leaving a moderately grapefruit bitter but smooth malty and somewhat sweeter flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer was on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that was just below average. The thicker and creamier body were rather nice for the malty and hopped flavors of the brew with the lower carbonation being perfect for producing a nice sipper in combination with the flavors with alcohol taste presence. Overall – A rather malty and smooth double IPA with a rather balanced flavor profile. It’s not too complex but rather tasty. Well worth a try.

Golden with rimming lacy white head; aroma is lightly hoppy and mainly grainy; Flava is lightly hoppy and mainly tangy malt; feels light to medium decent fizz; finishes dry slightly tangy and malty.

At the Yardhouse in VB VA. Pours a hazy gold with nice lacing. Scent is of citrus, honeydew pine. Taste is pine, orange with a hop explosion. Very good! Cheers!

Not a huge aroma coming from the glass, but a respectable amount of grapefruit, resin and other citrus accents. The glass reflects a deep orange-amber with a soft pillowy and off-white head. The lacing on the sides is sticky and tenacious. The liquid is bitter thereafter and also quite tenacious, lasting on my tongue quite a while but it’s not terribly unpleasant. I may not go out of my way to buy this again, but I wouldn’t turn it down if offered in a social setting.

Decent IIPA. Bitter to the end with an unusual aftertaste. Not bad, just not one I will be revisiting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a copper/Amber color with a nice frothy head. Aroma is caramel and citrucy piney hops. Taste follows the aroma with sone orange and grapefruit notes. Some good lingering hop bitterness on the back end. Medium mouth feel. Very good IPA.

draft at kite/key for Speakeasy event. Pours orange. very similar profile to the Big daddy with regards to aroma and flavor. I got orange and other tree bark aromas. Too bitter and big to drink consistently plus there’s much better IPAs out there these days.
