Best by 12/27/2013. Pours a cloudy orange frothy head. Smells faintly like pine, citrus, grapefruit. Tastes like a lot of the same, some sweetness from the malt. Decent balance. Mouthfeel is fine. Overall an ok beer that tastes like it could be fresher. Doesn't live quite up to the hype I've heard, honestly. ---Rated via my tastebuds and my brain.

16 oz. can from drsordr. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized thick off white head that leaves solid lacing. The aroma has more citrus and tropical fruit character to the hops. The flavor opens with a little grapefruit citrus, but the earthy, dank hops are much more prevalent, toasted bread, caramel, moderate bitterness, dry finish.

drsordr (1239) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Can pour hazy brownish gold. Nose tropical fruit hop and resin, some sweeter malt. Taste citrus bite up front, then quickly transitions from sweeter malt to dank and earthy hop. Mid palate bitterness continues through the finish.

Thechasm442 (345) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Pint can poured in a tulip. The beer pours kind of a hazy apricot orange wiith a thick white head that leaves pretty nice lacing. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, pineapple, and faint hints of toffee. Taste is bitter pine resin up front. It develops grapefruit, orange, and similar citrus flavors. There’s also a bit of caramel/toffee malt in the background. Overall it is a pretty juicy beer that finishes very dry, yet quenching. I like this one.

Mindwarp (91) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Pours a golden orange with a big white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Taste heavy hops and bitterness hints of citrus and pine. Overall not bad for a canned beer.

sawbuck (368) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Nice aroma of citrus, floral hops, fresh. Hazy orange amber color, nice huge fine tan head. Rich caramel malt up front. Citrusy hop flavor invades. Bitterness intinsifies nicely. Finsihes with a mix of sweet and bitter. Some cattiness in there also. Bitterness lingers quite long but does not burn your taste buds off. Almost creamy mouth feel from the richness of the malt. Nice IPA

Bartzilla (551) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 4, 2014
4 pack of tall boys from Trader Joe’s in St. Louis. Well balanced IPA. Not exactly West Coast, but it’s very hoppy. A little more malt on the backbone sets it apart from west coast counterparts. But I like it. A lot. Could be my go-to while I serve my time in Missouri.

Can bought in the US by a colleague. (thansk Wolff) Clear light amber with a medium fluffy white head. Fresh aroma of resin, grapefruit, some pineapple and biscuits. Similar taste. On the sweet side and with a bitter finish.

Barnoloid (275) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2014
A well executed IPA. Big citrus hops with a fairly extensive malt backbone. Little grassy. Enjoyable, was bought in a mixed pack of cans from this brewery, who make very solid beers.

BOSSbrewer (1991) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Can at home. Pours orange Amber with two fingers of lingering head. Aroma is floral and pine resin. Nice flavor is overbearing. Very bitter. Tastes like dish soap. Not really a pleasant drink. Medium bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
