12 oz bottle. Looks great! Smells good. But I can't get over the heavy maltiness of this beer. I particularly enjoy IPAs where the hops shine above the malt profile. The hops seem to hide behind the malts here. Still quite tasty though! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. App: Clear brownish amber with small fading white head. Ar: Pine, herb, alcohol, spice, biscuit. T: Pine, spice, alcohol, toast. P: Slightly foamy finish. Too much dark malt. Bottle had some age but there was a persistent alcohol and phenol note, not due to oxidation, that was very off-putting.

Tasted in 12oz bottle bought in Benton Harbor. Nice reddish brown color with low white head. I figured it would have a more hop forward aroma but instead all I could feel was some pungent alcoholic aroma. Alcohol present in the mouthfeel as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft @ Radisson, ROC. Slightly floral aroma. Burnt amber color, with white head that quickly dissipates, no lace. Biscuit flavor, pleasant bitterness, floral, not piney. Medium bodied. Overall, a very drinkable IPA. Id have another!

From a bottle. Biscuit aroma and flavours cuts through the big hop punch, good stuff.

jsporrer (307) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a clear iced tea dark amber color with a thin white ring. Light pine resin and sweet hops aroma. Medium body, very light hops bite. Smooth light malts. Refreshing and fairly smooth but nothing special. Very light bitterness and not harsh. Just not very remarkable. OK but not special enough to be great.

Slightly Hazy Amber Orange Color, Big Foamy Head That Lasts and Leves Nice Strings Of Lacing. Light Citrus, Floral Hop Aroma. Sweet Malt, Floral, Passion Fruit, Light Hop Bitter. Smooth. While Im not convinced that it has something special to earn high ratings, It is pretty Solid brew. Recommended...

Pours a beautiful dark amber with a thin cream head. Has a light but pleasant smell of floral hops. Has a medium, spiced feel on palate. Taste lives up to the name with a burst of flavorful hops and a sweet caramel finish. A solid IPA that paired brilliantly with my signature pulled pork.

davidezdonz (141) - , HONG KONG - DEC 29, 2015
A 12 fl oz bottle with an enjoy by date of 14th January 2016, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a clear copper orange colour with an off white one finger head that dissipated quickly but left nice stringy lacing. Aromas of citrus orange and lemon, pine with hints of tropical fruits and light caramel malt. Tastes of grapefruit and pine bitterness with quite a strong malt sweetness backbone. The finish is a nice lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall a nice IPA with good bitterness but maybe slightly too much malt sweetness.
