Definitely hoppy, not balanced at all. Hop lovers will enjoy. Personally I would have rated it a bit higher if it just had a little more complexity. Either a little bit of a floral or citrus character. The pine was definitely there.

Bottle at home. Pours a hazy gold color, with a lingering white head. Aroma is floral, hoppy, piney. Flavor is hoppy and resiny, with a powerful bitter finish. Not balanced, but i guess thats the point. Not syrupy or boozy at all.

In bottle with @gmellison. Pours vitamin b yellow. Light head. Smell is all floral and hops. Hits your palate super hard and has a sharp clean taste for being 8.2. Better cold. Really great overall if you’re craving that hoppy bite.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle best by 5/6/2014 poured into shaker. Slightly hazy amber color with two fingers of foamy off-white head that settles into a slick after a few moments. Lacing is excellent. Strong earthy pine and citrus hop aroma with some sweet fruitiness lingering on the edges. Flavor is strong hop bitterness, but it’s well balanced enough to keep it a pleasant drinking experience. The finish is nicely bitter and extremely long. I know I’m not exactly breaking new ground here, but this is an excellent DIPA.

12.oz bottle...After description on label, was expecting taste buds to be assaulted... didn’t happen. Pours golden amber with mild head and good lacing. Aromas of citrus and pine hidden behind the hops. Finishes with a lingering bitterness that keeps you waiting for the next sip. Cheers

12 oz draft at J Thimothy's in Plainville, CT. Pour is a clear golden amber with a decent white head. Very good lacing. Smell is sweet grapefruit and pine with pineapple orange notes. Taste is hoppy and bitter at first with a sweet citrusy maltiness I the middle and a piney bitter finish. Great beer.

@ Party Source / Bellvue KY --- Really Good Malt and citrus aroma, clear medium-light amber, swirls of lace. Big taste of malt starts things, moving confidently through the palate, until hops step in to take control on the swallow, only allowing a little malt to return deep in the finish. Very well executed, and very well balanced. A superb IPA.

Bottle pour into pint glass. Great citrus aroma you know the hops are coming. Very orange in color with a small off white head. This beer is not for the uninitiated! Delicious hops flavor tons of piney, resin, hit you in the face and it is actually balanced for what it is. Medium body. It will for certain wreck your palate can’t imagine pairing this with any food, but you will continue to go back for another sip. Very very bitter aftertaste but you want to go back for more. Recommend for Hop Heads. Definitely lives up to it’s name.

Very strong aroma of tangerine and peach. Initial taste of honey and a mix of fruits. Very bitter and long aftertaste. Great IPA with much flavor and great bitterness and fruity flavors.

Amazing smell! Drinking in a pint glass from the bottle. This did not seem nearly as bitter or alcoholic tasting as I was bracing myself for, which is a good thing. Honey notes. Oh, there’s the bitterness! Pretty tasty if you are into IPAs!
