22oz bottle. Hazy dark amber tone & a moderate-height off-white foam. Mellow tropical fruit, grassy and aged citrus nose & taste. Lacked a bitter bite. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. bookman10 (1120) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Pours a clear copper-gold, with middling head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Flavor is pretty dry, with a lot of hop bite, some malt sweetness, and a dry finish, not particularly bitter. Good but not great beer. SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 26, 2015

Bottle at home. Thanks Andy! Pours a dark copper color, head flashes white and fades to a thin soapy lace. Leaves nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is faint pine, lightly floral, toast, caramel. Taste is light citrus, pineapple, toast, caramel, light honey. Faint bitterness. A bit sweet, but definitely a drinkable beer. Smooth. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty decent beer. superspak (5584) - Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2015
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 11/29/2015. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, pear, lemon zest, orange peel, pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, pear, lemon zest, orange peel, pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of piney/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pepper, pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a very nice DIPA style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and easy to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
