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%.

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 (2092) - 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 (421) - 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 (565) - 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.

tmoreau (2724) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Shared 12 oz. can poured to rock glasses, showing a clear & bright, golden color, with a fairly persistent layer of frothy, white head foam, and wavy ribbons of lacing. The nose was initially resinous, then some citrus & dried fruit. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the flavor offered booze, the esters, decent malt backup, and some earthy & resinous bitterness. Not overly wowed, but an okay DIPA.

12 Looks orange. Smells of Hoppy Bread. Tastes decently hopped but not enough for the style. Just rather Boring.

drowland (6575) - Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2015
12oz can, June 2014, shared in Tallahassee, as I recall... or maybe given to me by PorterPounder? Nice orange pour with a good khaki head, nice lacing. Okay aroma, very mild tropical fruit, pine, citrus, malty. The flavor is okay, too malty, bitter, resinous, viney, a bit of pine. Eh.

WillRunForBeer (1087) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Can from my trip to Vegas. Pours orange brown with an off white head. Aroma is dank, citrus. Flavor is caramel, orange, citrus, floral hop. Some grapefruit bitter in the finish. This is within it’s best by date, but barely... I thought it might be past its prime, but looking at other reviews it sounds like this is what it’s supposed to be. Not bad, but a little to the sweeter side of balanced.

UncleKorm (976) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Can poured a hazy orange hue w/ medium rocky off-white head. Moderate sweet malty aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are caramel, grassy hop, and cereal. Medium bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
