22-ounce bottle pours slightly hazy golden with a big foamy off-white head. Aroma: peach, mango, pineapple, pine needles. Flavor: all of the above plus tangerine and pine nuts (it has a nutty flavor to it). Mouthfeel: luscious, creamy, almost oily texture on the tongue and in the mouth. Balanced and smooth. AT 9.2 percent alcohol, proceed with caution!

Aroma is rich with ripe citrus and toffee. Something else, too, but I cant figure it out. Taste is grapefruit and pine with lots of caramel, resiny sweetness. Bitter and boozy. This is a big (and beautiful) beer.

Hazy amber - gold beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is light, smooth and has reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth malts, mildly sweet. Hops bring a pithy citrus. Mild tropical fruits. Spicy orange before a light finish. Nice enough.

Tap at Muddy Waters. Still get excited to see this brewery distribute more and more offerings in Mpls. Nose is heavy on pine resin and a slight floral hop note. Golden orange appearance...clear and filtered. Lacing is decent. Head quick to dissipate. Taste and mouthfeel have strong resin characteristics with an alcohol bite. Pine and hoppyness come into play with a slight cloying nature. Very nice finish with the malty backbone serving as a capable foil to the bitterness of the hops. Bigger and badder than Racer 5 and Grand Am but again very high quality.

Nicely balanced, though strong with hops. Some grapefruit-like bitterness, full and punchy. A nice IPA I would certainly get again.

deyholla (10998) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2016
On tap at Stanleys. Pours a clear orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has strong pine supported by sweet grains and a bit resin. Flavor combines sweet citrus, pine and resin with slightly sweet and boozy grains supporting.

NikkTwist (3044) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2016 Draft at Moriartys. Hazy orange amber pour with a wide spray of beige foam. Sharp syrupy spicy citrus hop bite. Toasted sugarcane. Pink grapefruit pith and zest. Celery root. Burnt butter. Unusual. ABV is somewhat hidden but adds some harshness. Much bigger than the Racer 5; maybe a cousin to the Racer 15. Big, sweet and spicy.
