Bottle. Pours a light copper color. Head is small. Aroma is of.... hops! This is surprisingly smooth, without that hop-bight that many so called IPAís have. A very good beer that could easily be sessioned. At 7.2% better be careful though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draught) amber with some off white head. Citrus hops aroma. Flavor was citrus and pine hops. Thought it was lacking in malt backbone and body.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a copper amber color with a big soapy head that breaks down. Has an aroma of heavy pine with some grapefruit. The taste is very good. A pine forward 2IPA with notes of grapefruit and caramel. The malt is more dominant than other 2IPAs. Not sure why this is classified as an IPA with the IBU and ABV levels, this has the 2IPA feel.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Thanks man. Pours amber/copper with a foamy white head. Strong pine aroma with a hint of citrus. Medium plus body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is very resinous, over detectable caramel backbone, but Iím pretty sure thereís citrus in here somewhere. Not a harsh bitter, but a lot of bitter. Hard to believe it only comes in at 78 ibu. Starting to think itís got floral aspects. Exceptionally tasty ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very solid IPA. Nice pine and citrus aroma from an amber pour with a small head. Taste is nicely balanced with some malt for sweetness up front and a big hop hit to finish. Quite dry to finish. Good one.

Copper pour. Good citrus floral wisp off the top. Carmel reisiny body, rather smoothed out and subdued but with a lingering hidden strength. Easy drinking. Solid character overall

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear amber, brief head. Rich mango aroma. Mid-sweet with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Slick crysta malt covered in generous amounts of tropcial fruit-like hops. Powerful bitterness. A tasty hop driven beer, albeit with somewhat shallow malt profile.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quick review, as Iím being rushed. It has a clean orange colorw/ no carbonation to speak of, but has a frothy off-white, nearly light brown head. It has an awesome hop nose, a little malty and alot hoppy but honestly the flavor is a little lacking. Not a bad thing, just a little bit of a let down. I wouldnít peg this as anywhere near 78 IBU. Still, a lovely beer with a sweet malt palate and a musky finish.
