Can thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy orange with small creamy white head leaving spotty lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus. Thick mouthfeel with strong pine, resin, dank and light pineapple. Easy to drink hiding alcohol well. Very impressive IIPA. Ratman197 (15620) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2015

Re-Release? thanks to angrypirate06. Pours with a hazed golden orange hued body and a large white head. Great lace and retention Hoppy aroma with marmalade, citrus, pine, and lightly tropical. Medium crystal, mild esters. Alcohol evident. Flavors are citrusy, mild toasted malt, a bit sticky, floral, tropical, pretty dry. A bit malt heavy for my tastes, but not bad at all. Medium body fuller carb. Cybercat (6336) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Pours clear honey golden with a nice pale buff head. Aroma is strongly evergreen, like getting a good whiff of some fresh pine needles. Flavor is tres hoppy, evergreen and just a tad bitter, with citrus and malt hints. Firm body has good fizz and leaves an evergreen hop finish. Available only in Austin - or wherever a nice Austinite is sharing brewskis, thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2013
(16oz can thanks Trey) cloudy bright rustic gold, soapy tan bubbles that last. Nose is very tropical, pineapple, candied citrus Peel, lightly oniony, dank. Taste of pineapple, onion more prominent as it warms, quite dank, creamy body, lasting dank finish. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a hazy golden color with a one finger white foamy head that leaves some light clingy lacing. There is some light carbonation softly moving up.
The smell was sweetened pine with a nice allocated caramel lightly touching the nose together.
The taste was sweet and bitter bursting through fairly harsh on the taste buds. There is a good bittersweet pine aftertaste leading into a dry finish.
On the palate, it sits about a light to medium on the body. This one’s got the right amount of carbonation for a DIPA to have an ample amount of bitterness to lead to a great harshness on the tongue and mouth, ABV - what ABV, I barely notice it, what great drinkability.
Overall, this is a very well done DIPA well worthy of having again and I would love to have this again especially next time right outa the can as it would make a great beer to sip on while fishing on the pier. burg326 (5628) - Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Poured an orangish amber color with aromas of dank hops, light caramel, big pine and resin notes as well. Flavors were light malt then punched in the mouth with hops. Big pine and resin flavors with some light citrus and tropical fruit notes. A solid beer where the abv is hidden well.
