25.4 oz bottle. Aroma: malty and piney, with hints of caramel, pineapple, Wheat Thins, and hay. Taste/Palate: sweet, thick, and crisp; finishes with a long bitterness. ICEatALAMO (1349) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle. The pour is nice and orange. The aroma is all hops. The taste is a lot of hops, good pine. Decent amount of bitterness.

Courtesy of Dak. It pours with a murky copper looking body that supports a near white head of foam. The aroma erupts with mango and apricot and pineapple fruitiness as well as a more resiny pine hoppiness. Wow, smells like a fresh bowl of fruit wedges. The taste is rich and yummy delivering grapefruit bitterness as well as sweet mango and apricot notes. This has great balance as the citrus bitterness and then some pine resin blend seamlessly together as well as with the malt sweetened citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Darn, this is SOLID! daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bright gold pour with a white head. Wow this one is citrusy and resinous. A bit dank too. Some sweetness from the malts hides but the hops are the main attraction. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Golden orange pour with a white head. A little hazy. Malty, pine and grapefruit peel. Lots of hoppy and tasty goodness. A little resiny as well. Great and fresh IPA.

Bottle shared by someone in VT. Poured hazy amber with off white medium head and nice lacing patterns. Aromas were ultra hoppy, dank, cheese, diesel, dry funk. grapefruit, and resin bomb. Medium to heavier mouth for a doub ipa, great hoppy finish with tight bitterness. Very good beer from Block 15. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2013
750mL from Beaumont Market. LA Teku.
A: Pours a very crisp and bubbly copper color with a foamy 1" head. Looks somewhat like cider, really, excepting that it’s very cloudy and not translucent.
N: Wow. Very hoppy. Intense grapefruit, lots of spruce, some pineapple and a good base of malt to prop it up. Ginger and grass. Caramelized onion. The interplay of hops and sweetness here is very inviting.
T: Hops are showing up here, but they’re more of a bitter onion type persuasion, at least in the way it stings and has a slight tang. (It’s not gross like onion in hops, though.) Very slight malt base. If you like your hops scraping, this is one for you.
M: Medium mouthfeel that’s very very dry and palate scraping.
O: Definitely like this one, albeit not as much as #02. However, that’s because I’m less of a palate scraping guy and more of a balanced hop/malt type personality. Worth seeking out if you’re into the former. BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bomber. Grapefruit, pine and tropical fruit. Resiny. Creamy smooth. Solid bitter finish. Tasty. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured hazy amber/orange with an eggy, beige head. Nice head retention. Big hops on the nose. Earthy, black pepper spice, resinous. On both the nose and flavor. Thick mouthfeel, malty sweet but plenty of bitterness and hop spice to balance. Grapefruit notes and alpha acid galore too. $4 a pint... fuck yeah!!!
