This beer a deep hazy golden with a touch of copper and a fluffy rich head. The aroma is less intense than I thought but yet still full of citrus, pine resin, bitter rind and a whiff of sweet malt. On the palate it's a huge blast of bitter hop goodness. The 8.3 ABV is virtually non-existent amongst the hop layers and light caramel malts. Gription79 (2893) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 6, 2015
This is a hop bomb. Poured from a bomber. Big pine/resin hop character, caramel, soft bready malt. PhilJackson80 (531) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 4, 2015

Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold hue, with a bubbly layer of off white head foam, and spots of lacing. The aroma was sweet & fruity esters, floral perfume, then a seasoned/aged scent to the malt that seemed to combine with alcohol to form a BW scent. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste added a moderate, earthy bitterness that was mellowed some by a touch of malt & esters sweetness. Felt some alcohol, but altogether, didn’t come off as bold as I would’ve expected. scotchzombie (608) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2015
From a growler off the tap at Hop Yard Raleigh. Pours clear orange-gold with a large soapy off-white head that leaves lacing and hangs out awhile. Aroma is very fresh - orange citrus, vanilla...
Taste hits with mildly sweet caramel malt and citrus before fading into strong pine flavors over a biscuity malt bed. Resolves into grapefruit citrus and quite a hoppy bitterness. Some notes of vanilla. Alcohol is reasonably well-disguised, though the finish is dry, bitter and pleasantly warming. Much less sweet than a typical American DIPA. Hit me like a ton of bricks too.

Bottle. The pour is a bright vibrant orange. The aroma is strong sweet hops, bold and inviting. The taste is top notch. The hops blend perfectly to give a great taste with little bitterness that is welcome.

1/22/15. 22oz bottle from the FWB Chan’s. Generally speaking, I feel like this could be hoppier, maybe fresher... I don’t have the bottle in my hand, but I saw it was "best by" sometime in mid-February when I poured. It was sitting out on a room temp shelf, though. Hazy orange pour with a nice off-white head, great lacing. Still a nice aroma, just a little more biscuity/crackery than I was expecting. Otherwise a nice hop aroma, pine, lots of citrus, candied orange peel - it doesn’t punch you in the face (at least this bottle), which is almost a nice change of pace from all the EXTREME hops out there these days. Nice flavor, again more malt presence than I was thinking, crackery/biscuity, lots of grapefruit and orange, some pine lingers. Alcohol is hidden well, though the mouthfeel is plenty rich and hints at it being a double. Tasty!
