12oz bottle poured into a shaker. This was a gift from my brother. Rajah pours golden yellow with a nicely sized head of small bubbles. The aroma is heavy on hop resin. You can certainly smell the citrus, acid and pine associated with the hop style. The taste is delightfully hoppy without being over the top. Itís well balanced and almost epitomizes the style. The palate is slightly oily but leaves a dryness behind that makes you want more. The acid content seems higher than normal. If you have a sensitive stomach one or two of these would be enough. Overall, this is an excellent beer and a nice surprise from a brewer I havenít heard of before.

bottle. deep golden with one finger head. big dank hops. medium body. was expecting some belgian elements, but i donít really detect any -- more of a tropical fruity flavor with substantial bitterness.

shrubber85 (7729) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2014

rondphoto (2083) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 17, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a thick ivory head, splatters of lace. Taste is malt that is dumped on by pine hops. But, like a drowning man, the malt keeps reappearing. Strong, hop dominated, but eminently drinkable.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention. Aroma of citrus and piney undertones is quiet nice. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with light piney notes also observable. Bitterness isnít too intense with floral notes as dominant as I would have expected. Body is about average with good carbonation. Tasty beer with well balance bitterness level and great hops aroma. I would have liked flora notes to be even more dominant but still a very enjoyable IPA.

dagimp (725) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Six pack from 101 bottles. Pours an orangeish. Thick frothy head and lacing. Great tropical pungent aroma. Mouthfeel is super thick... Maybe a little too much. Taste is super tropical and skunky. Very pungent and dank. More le an IIPA. Really good but hard to drink more than one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"cory, who sent me this delicious elixir, is pretty spot on in his review. this has a west coast citrus aspect, a tropical fruit (think pineapple and peach) aspect, a sweet caramel toffee aspect, and is super fresh in the bottle. big and smooth. the label looks like a half US flag, half English. British malts? Idunno...either way, this is an elite ipa. $4, really?"

Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle received in trade with awlcordell. This honey gold beer is clear and has a one finger gold tinted layer of foam. First sniff was tangerine but then spices and citrus. The flavor is bitter onion with brown sugar, citrus, and tropical fruit. This is a hop bomb with little in the way of malts tasted. There is some sweetness underneath, though.

Bottle. Pours pale oraneg gold with a big white head. Aroma is orange, tangerine, slight floral, slight dank. Taste is orange citrus, slight dank. Caramel malt takes a back seat. Grassy bitterness in the finish.
