September 2011. 12 oz. bottle. Pours amber color with a nice white head. Citrus, flower and pine aromas mixed with the malt. Well balanced with a dry hoppy finish.

Voodoo (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours a copper color with a dense head. Aroma of citrus rinds. Taste is mild malts, slight simcoe hop profile, a bit of a dough taste then the alcohol hits and tails into mild bitterness. A very plain, dry imperial which could benefit from some complexity in the recipe.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours bright copper with a small yellow/beige head. Aromas of citrus, pine, soft sugary citrus, and dough. The flavor is bitter citrus, booze, and sweet dough. Average mouthfeel, a bit hot. Alright. [1143]

hfmejias (618) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAR 10, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a clear amber with a small white head a lot of lacing. Aroma of hops some citrus and malts. Taste very consistent sweet from malts balanced with a very nice bitterness of hops and citrus fruit. Easy to drink because it is not too hoppy and it is quite refreshing.

Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Smells of spruce, citrus. Taste is bitter and moderately sweet - grapefruit, brown bread, hint of spruce.

Arayaga2 (1754) - portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Clear coppery gold, with a cm of dense white head. Aroma is rich citrus and malt., and taste is the same, with a quick drying finish that feels like water chemistry. Bitterness is moderate, and also quite fleeting, with green herbal notes lingering into the end. $2.5/12oz

EithCubes (4628) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle Nose big and pungently hoppy, citrus and rind with lesser pine and tons of Simcoe, though it’s moved from paper/catty to something else, something tangy, and I love its force here. Little tufts of malt and yeast wend their ways through the great dry hopping. Pours transparent orange with a lean toward copper, head is stable but thin, oily legs are there but the minimum lace is broken and unordered. Taste has sweetness from the hops, strong bitterness over the tang, bitterness lasts until the very end, alcohol burn and rough edges do as well. Citrus and flat-edged caramel, mild astringency and a touch of rubber, and woody, but the dank, claustrophobic Simcoe pervades and it works quite well fresh. Intense! Chest-tightening, burly full body, alcoholic and kicks a little like bottom-shelf whiskey. For its obvious faults, this is just the beer for me in this moment.

Nik925 (742) - California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 Bright and dirty. Tons of hoops added at odd times. Strong bitterness, the main double element to this. odd sweetness at random times. Did not execute on this one.

rondphoto (1544) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Clear golden orange with a white head - good retention; horizontal streaks of lace. The taste is full-bodied caramel malt in a dead heat with solid pine hops. The two tastes intertwine effectively through a lingering finish. This is a big bodied IPA (without the 8%abv being noticeable) that is a pleasure to drink. Highly recommended.

Medium yellow to light amber. Nice lacing on glass. Aroma is awful, smells like a wet dog. Drinkable, but wouldn't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
