Great aroma, when you pop the top, it fills the room with hippy goodness. A very well rounded IPA.

Pours golden copper with white head. Dry pine hop aroma and flavor. Moderate malt body.

Goodgrief (2082) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - DEC 31, 2017
Copper pour with frothy head. Sticky sweet. Caramel malt and pine. If this were a barley wine, it would be sticky. As an IPA, it’s just not good.

PugUglyBrewer (889) - - DEC 14, 2017
Hazy bright amber color with a creamy, dense head of off-white foam. Big malt presence that is a bit sweet and hint of rye. The hops come in strong on the backend very sticky and pine sappy. Represents the best of style in an aggressive west coast double IPA.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is citrus and pine hops with caramel malts. Flavor is coriander with citrus and pine hop. Decent biter finish.

drpimento (3869) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2017
This is a very good Imperial IPA whoever very much burying the very public trademark. It has there heavy resin forward character rather than now more popular citrusy or tropical fruit characteristics that personally I prefer. It's a good beer but the the Piney resin thing gets a little heavy. There is some malt there but the Hops dominate. Good carbonation medium-length bitter finish. Good drinking beer nonetheless.

gripweed57 (3043) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Hazy Amber orange color. Big rocky beige head. Rich toasted malt nose hints at caramel. Toasted caramel malt flavor upfront has spicy, earthy notes. Chewy, sticky malty midtaste, with notes of resiny, overripe citrus hops. Finish is spicy with notes of vanilla and warming alcohol. Dank bitter aftertaste. Very smooth for an IIPA. Enjoyable.

dwyerpg (6580) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2017
The best part of this beer by far is that it's so smooth I thought it was a standard ipa. Didn't taste the alcohol at all
