4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hop explosion. Awesome deep copper color. Intense hop aroma. Solid malt profile to hold everything together extremely well. Grapefruit and citrus hop flavor at the beginning, malt in the middle and finishes with an amazing bitterness that left me wanting more. Great brew.

I read a lot about this beer as being tops of the charts. This IPA I think is overated for any form on top 50 charts. Yes, itís good, but a little bland. No single thing sticks out.

pours a rich copper amber with a decent beige head. Aroma is pine and citrus. Great taste. initially bright then hoppy bitter kicks in. Beautiful balance between a good malt backbone and a hoppy citrus bitter. Hints of mandarin orange and grapefruit. Pleasant moderately bitter linger after the finish. Excellent beer!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
COD 12/1/15. Pours a lovely amber with a strong garnet cast. World class head volume, lacing and retention.
Quite outstanding nose of orange, orange rind, tropical notes (mango, pineapple), subtle pine and even more subtle spicy spruce. Underneath is a rich biscuit base that is bready with soft caramel hints.
Light medium body that is quite smooth and has creamy aspects. Normal carbonation levels with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a stronger finish.
The flavor profile is outstanding with a laid back bitterness and intensity, fairly complex and well balanced. Hops arrive in a blended fashion and never really separate, although orange is noticeable from the middle on. The middle has a moderate bitterness that is rind and pine based. A solid malt sweetness balances from the middle on, which allows the orange to shine. The finish is dry and a rind bitterness lingers. As the finish fades, a subtle spicy spruce note arrives.

I pint can, many thanks to Rian (Thirstybird). Amber/ orange with an off white head. Resinous floral aroma. Flavour is a delicious multi US hop citrus cocktail, backed up by sweet juicy malts. Palate is oily and pleasantly bitter with smooth natural carbonation. Lovely.

Poured fro the tall boy can of a 4-pack, clear dark orange with lots of chunky foam. Taste is lip smacking, resin, tropical, sticky, spicy, & dry, this drinks heavier than a 6.2%. This is probably the tenth 4-pack Iíve purchased of furious and every time I get too buzzed to rate it, that in itself is a vote of confidence.

16 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured deep orange, clear, big off white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus fruit and hops. Taste is also bitter, lots of citrus fruit but well balanced by malts making it quite smooth. This a great IPA, super enjoyable and certainly very enjoyable.

Can pour copper deep orange with moderate ecru head. Nose pine, resin, light dank, some grass. Nice hop nose. Taste moderate bitter bite up front then pine and dank. Mid palate balancing sweetness. Nose seems bigger than the flavor. Lingering pleasing bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 10/20/2015. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy reddish orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light roast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light roast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and minimal hop astringency after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. Despite the darker malt and appearance; this was still very dry with minimal overall sweetness as expected for a west coast style IPA. A highly enjoyable offering.
