Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a nice medium golden color with two finger of sticky white foam. This beer has a big punch of pine, some spruce, guava and citrus zest. Sweet malt backbone keeps the bitterness in check.

Poured from a bottle given to us by a stranger at 2014 Dark Lord day. Aroma is citrus and pine. Appearance is a clear crisp golden yellow. Taste is semi sweet pine with some citrus. Palate is crisp and fresh with good carbonation. This is an IPA that you should try, it will be worth your time.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle obtained in trade via reece. Thanks! Poured to a snifter. Pour was pretty clear and golden. Not much head and minimal lacing. Bursting with fruity smells of mango, grapefruit, and orange. A small amount of floral was noticed too. The mango really takes over on the taste for me. It was very good. I got hints of other fruits, but mango hands down ruled it. I noticed alcohol in this one along with a decent amount of bitter. I don’t mind that in a beer so it was no issue for me. I enjoyed this along with most other TG offerings that I’ve been lucky enough to try.
