TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Tap @ Public House. Clear, orange-gold pour with a medium white head which fades quickly to a goodly rim and leaves heavy lace. Nose is grass, pine and ganja. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a pleasant hop stickiness. Weed, pine, caramel and some cattibess. Some EtOH coming in the finish as it warms. Not too complex, but very solid and a great hop profile.

Like the taste. Has character and not too complex. A little hop but not too over the top. Will order this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alexanderj (3311) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle; poured a dark copper/orange color with a large off white head. Aroma of chewy caramel, earth, fruit, and spice. A NW feel to it. Flavor had a decent balance to it. Some sweetiness, earthiness, caramel and fruit. Initially, not top notch flavor. Solid overall.

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle picked up in Vegas. Hazed golden amber hued pour with a lasting and retentive off white head. Aroma is of crystal malt, biscuity malt and an odd lactone like dill to coconut in the background. Also quite hoppy, fruity and grassy with some marmalade. Flavors are grassy with oxidation (noticeable). Faded hops, quite a bit of malt body and sweetness. Bottling issue. Well hidden alcohol. Fuller bodied with moderate carbonation.

Reimer96 (1195) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 3, 2013
On tap at brewery, pours a cloudy orangish copper with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, malty sweetness, some grass and resin. Taste is sweet pale malts, citrus hops, toffee and some grass on the finish. Overall this hop Bomb is delicious and is an easy drinking double ipa.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Poured up on tap at Papago with an opaque (hop haze I hope) orange-ish copper body with thick gold edges and supporting an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up citrusy hop notes of malt sweetened orange peel and grapefruit with slivers of resiny pine like hop bitterness. Nice start. The taste delivers rich robust hoppy goodness in the form of both citrus hop flavor and bitterness. The hop bitterness quickly gets resiny with a pine hop like sensation. Into the finish a bit of booze can be detected. Solid brew. Yum!

Wittales (632) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Appearance was clear orangish gold with creamy off white diminishing 1 finger head, rings of lace. Aromas are citrus fruits, spice, sweet malts with hints of candi sugar. Taste was lemon, grapefruit, slight pine, orange and hints of berry, no alcohol present. Palate was smooth soft creamy CO2 with meduim-full body, then smooth balanced bitter fruity lasting finish. A great local DIPA@ the Creek...

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle from Legacy Liquor Store, Vancouver, 8.5% ABV
Light amber color, hazy, with medium-sized head. Aroma of hops, resiny and fruity, but not fresh. Correct body strength, smooth mouthfeel; it has a good toffee and caramel flavor, with robust bitterness; the hopping is resiny, a bit citrusy; the final is strong; once more, good but it doesn’t seem to be ultra fresh. It’s a solid beer anyway, lean, not too cloying.

reebtogi (4146) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2012
650ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that settles slowly revealing some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is piney and citrusy hops with some grainy malts and passionfruit. Taste is much like the aroma. A very nicely balanced brew with a medium body and abundant carbonation. Tasty and enjoyable. A world class beer.

Matts_Property (831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper orange with white lacing. Aroma of piney hops, resin, oils, bitter citrus, orange peel. Flavour of bitter hops, aforementioned qualities, soap and caramel. Very bitter, not very balanced. Nice.
