Light amber color with white head and good lacing. Subtle pine aroma, not overbearing at all. Tastes is a caramel that I appreciate, not too sweet, enough to hide some bitterness. Hops flavor is citrus, mild due to the sweetness. Medium carbonation, but seems a little sticky. Finish is crisp, but the alcohol flavor comes through a little too much.

sample at big texas beerfest Orange with a wispy head. Fresh hop nose is pine, some malt balance in biscuit. Flavor with more balance from malt, but again, earthy pine dominates. A little salty of a finish for me, particularly given the thin mouth.

arminjewell (8626) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought orange, grapefruit, pine, hints of spice and a slight yeasty note. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, biscuit into a bit of caramel, orange, grapefruit, slight old hoppy notes, finishing fairly bitter.

Nero55 (865) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle. Slightly hazy copper with small beige head. Aroma of biscuit, light citrus hops, and toasted malt. Medium body, moderate citrus and pine hop bitterness, moderate malt backbone, and a citrus finish.

Copper to dark Amber color. Very little in the scent. Pine taste that is more malt than hops. Definitely does not taste like a 9.0%.

JK (4972) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Copper color. Aroma of mild hops. Flavor is bitter with citrus and pine, but balanced by a sweet malt body. Finish is bitter hops and sweet malt.

fidelis83 (2196) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Slightly hazy copper pour with a two finger kinda chunky off white head. Aroma is fruity and citrus hops, biscuit, sweet malt and a little bit of spruce tips. Flavor is sweet cereal, oat-like graininess, bitter and sweet citrus, some pine and some booziness. Medium body, syrupy to oily feel, medium carbonation. Good stuff.

maltman53 (432) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle pours more copper than orange for an IPA. Aroma seems to be a house style for Squatters: more malt than hops. Like cooked marmalade. Overall, hides its 9.0% ABV extremely well, has lots of sweet malt flavor - a very good beer.

rjplumer (667) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 18, 2015
A sweet grapefruit like aroma. . Orange and ruby clear body. Head thins out a laces the glass nicely. Strong bitterness upfront. Has a light fruit and caramel malt balance. Finishes clean and refreshing for something this strong. I’ll be happy to have this one anytime.
