it’s got a much milder dose of that smell from the goto ipa. much more to my
taste. the smell is lovely. taste is even better. very pleasantly bitter. nice
aftertaste, too. the abv is a bit high at 9.4% but it doesn’t taste medicinal.

Bottle enjoy by 7/4/14. Light amber pour with a long lasting half inch white head. Strong hoppy aroma. Taste is a little sweet at first but becomes more bitter as you continue to drink. Carbonation is light and body is medium to heavy.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Enjoy by 7/4/14 Really enjoyed this draft over the bottle I had the other week. Clear medium orange amber with a big frothy lasting white head. Big hoppy aroma. Big hop flavor. Lighter full body. Big fresh pine. Dank. Grapefruit. Floral. Some tropical. Caramel. Fair sweetness to balance the firm bitterness. Oily and soft. Palate adjusts after a few sips, but finish maintains its strong bitter hoppy character. Surprisingly smooth for its size, no booze. Really excellent.

Hops with dirt on ’em. Sour apricot, bitter grapefruit. A bit of woodsy smoky malt. Long, bitter finish. Jammy, fruity, dry, complicated fruit and hops. I can taste the rhizomes, it’s so fresh.

Bottle. Pours clear orange with a creamy white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus. Medium to heavy bitter, light to medium sweet, flavors of grapefruit, hop bitterness balanced against background malts. average carbonation leading to a long bitter finish. Hides the alcohol very well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
enjoy by 07-04-14 poured from bomber. light amber color with thin head and small amount of lacing on the glass. strong aromas of grapefruit, pine and mint, tangerines, a little lime and ginger. taste is slightly hot from alcohol and medium-light bitterness. Hop flavors are what you would expect from the nose, citrus, pine, but not as potent. A little bit of spice and some biscuity malt flavors. body is okay with smooth carbonation and good weight to it. what you would expect. overall i greatly enjoyed this beer and I am glad i got my hands on it so soon after its release.
