On tap at Pub 1842, MGM Grand, Las Vegas. Mango and grapefruit aroma with some orange. Taste is pineapple with tropical fruits. Quite a lot of bitterness on the finish which lasts long. Tasty, refreshing and fairly complex. I like this.

Thanks erzengel for sharing!!! Pours a clear deep gold color with a fluffy cream cap. The smell is caramel malt, fruit, citrus and some spice. The taste is spicy, malty - caramel, fruit, citrus ending crisp, dry and slightly bitter with a bit of soap on the end. The body is medium with nice , fine carbonation. The taste seems a bit off and is a bit sweet with the caramel an all.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft sample (dry hopped with Nelson). Hazy gold in colour with moderate carbonation. Strong aromas of guava, pink grapefruit, cut grass, and crispy pale malt. Tropical and sweet citrus hops pretty much take over in the mouth, but there are traces of grass, minerals, and aloe in there as well. Sharp but restrained bitterness. Shades of Toppling Goliath here. A very enjoyable beer.

A fantastic IPA. Pours a hazy orange with pillowy white marshmallow head. Nice lacing. Aromas are corn syrup and fresh pine needles. Flavors wonderfully balanced. Nice pine forward hop bitterness with a great malt backbone. Thanks kathouse for this gem.

Drank if straight from the bottle. Nicely rounded taste, good profile, piney. Citrus-y as well, with plenty of bitterness and a long aftertaste. An enjoyable brew, if on the "heavy" side of the style.

Many thanks to Stefan SD for this 650 ml bottle.
Golden in the glass, slightly sweet and very intense hoppy in the nose. The beer starts much more bitter than expected. Only slightly sweet in the background. The intense bitter note lies over all - also nearly no floral hop aroma, as the nose predicts. The aftertaste is long, intense-bitter, smooth.
Probably not the freshest bottle, as I miss any of the floral hop aroma. But not bad at all - a decent very bitter brew! --> 12/10/12/11
