12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours an apricot color. The head is a fluffy one finger off-white shade. All in all, the looks are typical for the style: frothy head, okay retention, and plenty of lacing left behind. S: Aromatically, hops do jump out from the glass - mainly the floral, lemony variety. Sourdough bread seems to make an appearance, too. Iíve grown to point where I can smell Centennial hops from a mile away, and this brewís got íem. T: Flavor-wise, itís sweeter than what the aroma let on. I was waiting for the bitterness to prick the tongue...and instead I got a sweet, caramel forward brew where the hops are only there to balance instead of being showcased. Late in the aftertaste, some floral and spicy hop notes do appear. Aside from the typical caramel and toffee notes, itís also a bit earthy. M: Itís a rather clean brew, which at least helps quash some of the sweetness well. It glides down the tongue with a crisp bite, too Iíd almost call it thirst quenching...no, I will call it thirst quenching. Not dry by any stretch, but it does a good job of going down easily anyways. The sweet finish doesnít bother me at all. O: Iíll give it one thing - itís drinkable. Very drinkable, even for a 7.3% IPA. It just doesnít have the most interesting flavor is all. If I had bought a 6 pack of this (which I didnít) I wouldnít have any trouble killing it.

Great IPA. Great appearance. Delicious hop flavor. You cannot go wrong with this beer. A even balance between pine and citrus.

Nothing too fancy going on here, just a clean and smooth taste. Higher abv is very sneaky, could see this as an amazing session beer.

Hartung32 (207) - Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Good IPA, and very well balanced. The malt backbone plays better with the hops than most IPAs with a more pronounced malt profile. The main problem is probably the name. I assumed a hop bomb going in and it isn't. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle: Nearly clear, amber-orange with a short beige head. Slightly bready, orange-peel/pine scent. Taste is caramel malt, grapefruit/orange and piney hops. Very lively.

Frothmeister (544) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
12fl oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with sediment floaters and a huge creamy light beige head. Vegetal resinous nose with some booziness, and light caramel. Taste wise, itís toffee notes with alcohol, spice, resinous hops (the malt profile really makes me think Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA) that kind of falls apart into hopbomb territory (metallic notes, citrus) then a finish of citrus pith. The good parts of this beer I love, and make ignoring the weaker parts very easy. Closer to DIPA than IPA. Recommended.

Hazy orange amber wits sting foamy lacy beige head; aroma is rich like Buttery popcorn or a touch of fruit like cantelope(?); Flava is malty soft and tangy sweet notes of cantelope blended with ignt floral hop notes; feels medium to thick with moderate fizz; finishes dry and hoppy bitter;

12 oz Bottle. Tasted on 6/18/14. Beer from Total Wine @ Naples, FL. The beer has a aroma of pine, resin & a lite citrus. Taste was good & similar to the aroma . The was a medium bitter finish that was more dry than sweet. Overall not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
