The beer pours a golden color with a medium head. The aroma is heavy with pine and citrus like pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is more citrus with lemon and grapefruit and there is some malts on the backend. Pretty thick body.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(bottle) Pours a clear gold color with a medium white head and quite a lot of lacing. Aroma isn’t super potent and punchy, but what’s here is good, with scents of canned pineapple, light pine, grapefruit, and orange. Maybe a glimmer of mango or papaya, but it only emerges when swirling. The booze is a bit high here and mucks around with the scents quite a bit, but when it’s not interrupting my nostrils the scent is quite good. Flavor holds candied orange, grapefruit, and lingering pine on the finish. Not much complexity here in the flavor, but it’s not bad. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is appropriate. Booze is prominent in the finish. I have to bump this a bit overall as I feel the price of this beer (bought it for $9.49 a sixer) is a pretty solid value, and when matched with the overall quality of the product, this will prompt me to purchase this repeatedly.

Clear copper color with white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is piney with a touch of citrus. Citrus hits the tongue. Bitterness of the finish is not as smooth as most IIPAs.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Really nice aroma--notes of basil on a pizza--but the flavor offered more of a hodgepodge of piney flavors. Somewhat viscous body. Only ok.

12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger of tight off-white head, amber color, clear, head lasts, good lacing. Aroma: heavy pine and caramel, light grass. Palate: medium full body, average carbonation, bitter and dry finish, sticky texture. Taste: sweet smooth caramel into tints of grassy bitterness, then into a very heavy piney bitterness. Overall, super smooth for how bitter the beer is, very nice balance, really basic flavors, but very solid.
