8/12/13 bottle. Very floral IPA. Very bitter. I mean really damn bitter. touch of citrius nice smoth sweet malt back end. Usually I am not a huge floral hop fan but the bitterness mixes nicely on this.

Amazing aroma of floral hops and citrus. The taste has a big hop flavor as expected. There is also a equally nice malt flavor. Truly an exceptional beer.

DuffMan (6152) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 10, 2013
On tap @ Stubbyís, Milwaukee. Deep orangey body, hazy, tightly packed off white head. Sticky oily hoppy body, mostly pine, is carried by sweet caramel malts. Long bitter finish. Excellent IIPA.

jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Somewhat cloudy copper/orange color with a 1.5 finger off-white head leaving lots of sticky lacing down the glass. Smells of tropical fruits, caramel malt and a little bit of pine. Nice citrus/tropical fruit hops hit the front of the palate. Loads of caramel/toffee sweetness balance this out in the middle and leaves a sticky piney bitter finish. Ver well balanced. Stick and well carbonated. Why is it brews with extreme names tend to be the most balanced? There are definitely lots of hops in this promiscuous beer, but the malts come close to balancing them out. A little bit too strong of a malt presence and a slight astringent aftertaste are demerits, but overall a good beer.

drpimento (2098) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Served a little too cold with a huge, cream-colored, thick, foamy,frothy, billowy head and loads of lace. Color is a clear deep copper amber. Aroma is mild for me, but my snooter doesnít work so well. What I could whiff was hop and malt. Flavorís like nose but with giant hop that has enough malt to compliment and excellent carbonic tang. Even though itís too cold body/carboantion are perfect. Finish is like flavor, taperes slow and is so drinkable.

thedm (4886) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 21, 2013
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent golden brown colored body and a good lacing. The almost non-existent aroma was hoppy. The sharp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of mild caramel citrus and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Draft. Amber pour, beige head. Good retention/some lace. Aroma of pine, citrus, perfume, toast, caramel. Taste is bitter, sweet, pine, citrus, toffee. Palate is soft, a bit sticky, oily, bitter finish.

Nice golden brown color with a foamy white head. Little disappointed that the bottle has a reissue to. Not much of a smell at all. All I really taste us a light bitter flavor. Definitely had better, but it isnít bad.

Chuckaduck (605) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Bottled 7/31/13. Poured 9/10/13. Translucent amber with an oily off-white head. Aroma is grass, citrus, earth, vanilla, floral, grapefruit, light berries. Taste is very full flavored and perfume-like; citrus, floral, grass, caramelized orange peel; finish is long, bitter orange peel. Thereís a hint of something in the flavor profile that I canít quite identify; itís bright and elevated but earthy and rich. Fantastic flavor. Exquisite lacing. Medium carbonation. Full bodied. This is fantastic. Highly enjoyable, incredibly well crafted.

akoeninger (341) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Reddish brown with white foamy head. Big pine aroma and tropical fruit, tangerine, strawberry. Bitter but well balanced by the malts. Slick mouthfeel. A very seductive beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
