Pour a clear bright amber orange with a white foam head. Aroma is citrus and pine and medium malt. Taste is a good balance between strong citrus hops and strong malt support with a nice bitter bite. Big flavorful IPA bordering on an imperial. Troegs best brew.

From the new attractive can. What has happened to this once marvelous hoppy beer? The overly sweet malt completely hides any good hop flavor. Once aggressively sought out, this was likely my last one, unless they return to the old recipe.

bottle @ Jungle Jims / Cincinnati OH --- Aroma of malt and citrus. Clear medium orange amber with lots of effervescence. Thick 2" ivory head, lots of lacing. Taste is strong malt that is in cahoots with strong citrus hops. Both elements move smoothly through a medium carbonated swallow to a long satisfying finish. Really solid big IPA. May be the best of Troegs’ offerings.

Pours a bright orange color with a foamy white head. Notes of massive orange and pink citrus, with brown sugar and a fat malt backbone. Really well balanced and integrated.

The nose is not particularly noticeable, but the amber color and quality lacing help in terms of appearance. The mouthfeel is so creamy that it feels like it was from a handpump, when in reality, it was from a standard tap. The mix of hops and malts is so enjoyable. Got this one in a growler at Total Wine on Route 92 in DE. Cheers!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper color. Very thin, almost not there, white head. A spicy hop aroma with some malt. A bit of caramel, grass and malt. Aggressive bitterness that lingers like eating a grapefruit peel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask pour into shaker pint glass at Jimmy’s Culpeppers. Aroma is strong herbal and citrusy hops. Appearance is clear amber with finger-width white foamy head with fair retention, decent lacing, fair sparkle. Taste is strong herbal over citrus hops, dominant over malt backbone, well balanced mix of bitter and sweet. Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation but in an appropriate, refreshing way, crisp lightly bitter finish. Overall, a more flavorful than bitter IPA with a nice refreshing quality.
