On tap at the Brewpub. Hazy orange with a white head. Hoppy with grass, malt and some grapefruit. Also warming alcohol. The finish was really bitter.

Capa (3078) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Medium orange with a tall pillowy head. Heavy malts over this bitter orange and citrus hopped DIPA. Some light floral notes. A bit sweet, fruity, and bitter. A slightly off-putting finish, however, makes this not one Ill be coming back to very often. Still, decent enough.

Ahuth (471) - Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottled. Cloudy copper. Has a upfront hop taste. Grassy piney hops. After a couple drinks a orangy flavor pops out but mostly the grassy hops. Decent

BVery (10051) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2015
Tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy light orange pour with a clingy white head. Citrus rind, bitter. A little underflavored and under-aromaed for big IPAs here in 2015 - this one needs a new coat of paint.

snoworsummer (5395) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle. Tastes very malty and boozy, nutty and like stale grapefruit. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

Sarlacc83 (2187) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle. A: Cloudy orange with an off-white head. N: Pineapple, orange syrup, pine, cracker, cracked peppercorn, earth, leaves, some coriander and floral elements. Hefty minerality. T: Goodly bitter and big sweetness. Well balanced. M: Medium body, very dry, prickly carbonation, no alcohol. O: Decent IIPA. Very fruity and dry. A bit on the artesian well side, though.

DenverLogan (1178) - LA, California, USA - JUL 9, 2015
From a 12 oz bottle into a Saxo stem glass. Pours apricot gold with head and lace. Aroma of straw hops and malts. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of bitter field herbs, roots, straw hops, hay, grains, slight malts. Overall big, bold, bitter.

brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
On tap @ Bridgeport. Clear orange colored beer with a dense white head. Fresh grass clippings and huge weed nose. A bit of the sweet caramel malt thing coming through. Maybe some apple, which I could do without. The bitterness is really intense. A ton of grass, citrus rind, pine, and weed. A little too much for me.

Scoobyluvshub (43) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Poured from bottle. Hazy amber, aroma was dank, skunky, light citrus. The taste was terrible imo, skunky, dank, bitter, citrus, earthy. Fairly tough on the palate. Definitely not for me.

foyle (416) - Wyoming, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a 2" off white fluffy head that drops very slowly with abundant lacing. Color is cloudy golden-orange with some sediment in suspension and mild streaming carbonation. Aroma: pine, citrus, and pineapple dominate the white bread dough backbone. Mouthfeel: medium a bit chewy & sticky with a somewhat dry and astringent finish. Flavor: bitter citrus rind dominates from start to finish with some pine and tangerine notes. Malt is less pronounced than I expected with just enough sweetness to be noticeable. Overall: very good.
