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 (624) - 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 (396) - 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

Draft at TOF. Pours dark amber. Big PINE aroma. Full body, soft carbonation; slick/thick texture. Big bitterness cut by underlying maltiness. Overall: solid.

kcorum10 (325) - Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Pours a red/bronze color with practically no head at all. Aromas of resin with a flavor that is much of the same. Has some sweet malt flavors as well. Something to me is missing here and I canít place it. I feel this doesnít live up to itís name.

mnmike (1014) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Aug. 2012 bottle date cracked in March 2013. Lots of hop sediment which is good in my book. Low aromas likely due to the aging. Thick head with lacing. Iíll try this fresh next August.

12 oz. bottle Courtesy of Queenholly. My English pint is displaying a hazy mahogany color. No head or lace. I love the name of this brew!! Great creativity. Yet, with a name like that I was expecting a blast of hops on every level. WellÖ itís lots of malt sweetness. On the nose is light hoppyness with lots of caramel. Light weak fruit. Iím really thinking I got a old bottle because the ďDripping with luscious hop flavorĒ as the commercial description implies really is nowhere to be found. Medium to full bodied with lots of sweetness. Syrupy texture. If this is a summer or spring release; this is old for sure. I was actually in the mood for a hoppy beer tonight. Oh well, I imagine this would be a beast on draft.

Scipio (677) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Pours a deep, slightly cloudy red with a white head. Aroma is strong and complex. There are strong caramel malty impressions, but there are strong fruity notes of orange and mango, as well as some pine. The taste is dominant in the fruity notes. There are a lot of orange and berry flavors, but they arenít over the top since they are caramel malts to balance it out. Pine is lesser, and I get hints of grapefruit as well, which appear more after the initial sip. Aftertaste is caramel, pine, and grapefruit. Full bodied, thick in texture, with softer carbonation, especially considering what you expect from this style. This one has a lot going on. I usually like these, but some of this here doesnít agree with me.

backdaft (200) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a brownish amber color with a thin beige head. Watch out for the sediment. Tropical fruit sweetness and caramel malt aromas. Flavor is on par; tropical fruit, sweet caramel malts, and lingering pine bitterness. Big, full bodied, and somewhat alcoholic. This IIPA delivers a real punch.
