On tap at the brewery - dark gold yellow with a small head and lacing. Not as hoppy as Hop Ride. Fairly sweet with a caramel taste. More hoppy on the back end. Somewhat earthy. Medium body.

Prufrockstar (1350) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Bomber featuring a dancer riding a tiger, thanks to wittales. Appearance: clear pale amber with ample frothy head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma: gentle caramel beneath citrus and floral hops, toast and wet dog. Taste: moderately sweet up front, followed by loads of bitterness; alcohol lingers in the aftertaste. Palate: texture is borderline syrupy, with full body and moderate carbonation.

Man, the appearance really hurts this one. Reviewing from memory now... Pours a flat copper amber with no head. I mean no head. Winds up looking like beer that has been left out overnight. Everything else makes up for it and it winds up being a middle of the road "good" beer.

AgentAle (939) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Aroma is lightly roasted malts paired with a fairly well pronounced hoppy profile. Light caramel and biscuit. Taste is a light sweet and crispy maltiness that isnt too special but is well balanced with a slightly pronounced bitterness. Appearance is a clear gold with a pearl head that retains fairly well.

On tap at C4 Deli in Santa Ana. Murky tangerine with a fluffy white head. Spicy, slightly catty hop bitterness hits hard but is tamed somewhat by a good caramel sweetness. This is the creamiest IPA I’ve ever had! Leaves a strong, delicious bitter taste behind. Very drinkable DIPA.

Poursa a copper orange with a two finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of sweet malts, caramel, citrus, subdued pine, and some toasted malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some additional hops and some herbal and grassy hop notes, backed up by a pretty nice malt backbone. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, slightly dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a decently tasty DIPA that is pretty well balanced and pretty drinkable for a 8.5 abv beer.

A great imperial IPA. Thanks kathouse for this beauty. Pours a stunning hazy peach color with nice soft white head. Aromas are floral and citrus. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Solid malt backbone.. With a nice balanced hop flavor. Fantastic beer.

Hazy orange amber with small creamy head. Hops prevail throughout, some floral notes as well, lingering bitter finish. Nice malt profile sits underneath.
