Bottle from The Beer Mongers, Portland. Aroma is dank resinous hops, malt, caramel, pine resin, citrus, tropical fruit, grapefruit, orange. Flavour is moderate sweet with a bitter finish. Body is medium. Starts out malty and resinous but yields more of its dank hoppy and tropical character down the road. Very nice. ABUSEDGOAT (2731) - California, USA - JUN 20, 2017

Bomber on the north shore. Orange golden, big hit of tropical fruit hops. Sticky and resinous hops, fruity and slightly piney. Very good Derek881 (1272) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a pretty clear copper color with an amber hue and a large, creamy off-white head with good retention, and great cling and lacing. Its aroma featured strong pine and citrus hops, along with some spices and grass. The taste was quite good, and featured a delicious blend of citrus and pine bitterness. It had a very lively and fizzy mouthfeel with high carbonation and a bubbly feel throughout. sulawang (1155) - - FEB 4, 2017
Visual: Pours almost opaque dull orange-light copper brown without a significant head, thin ringed retention with a holey island, a bit of fine lacing, steady spread out singular streams.

Nose: clean resiny tangerine citrus hopped malt. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: very crisp bite, subtle incoming bitterness
Mid-palate: light tingly, crystal clean soft bright tangerine, (lvl-5-sweetness), toffee barley malt, dry-pine overtones
Finish: resiny soft bitter hops, long residual pine-grassy hopped bitterness, subtle citrus exhale
Summary: A pretty well-rounded IPA with alternating citrus-grassy pine reverberations from start to finish. A tad too dry and grassy for my liking; I prefer more citrusy notes.
On tap at Nana’s Irish Pub. A great well made example of the style, plenty of pine and citrus but not a hop slap, loved it.
