On tap at brewery. Pours golden with almost no head. Very hoppy, slight cat piss aroma. Full body and big punchy flavor. Finishes quietly with a little bitterness. Overall, not one of my favorite big IPAs.
Flowery hoppy nose. Pale head. Golden color. Hoppy slightly sweet taste. Warming alcohol. Alcohol in the nose too. Gerbeer (4149) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
On tap. Pours amber with light foamy head. Aromas of oranges, pineapple, pine and dough. Flavors follow with bitter citrus rind, toasted malts and more bitter pine. Peppery. For those that like a bitter DIPA. Hennessyjk (38) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Wonderful hazy orange appearance. Hops are forward at the start and finish. Aroma is wonderful. A very nice DIPA

This is not an amateur IPA. Just sayin. You must tolerate bitter and hop. You must. No choice! It's the bitter that has the biggest bite! But at 9 Ibv it's ok.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with somewhat thick and foamy head. Apricot and malt aromas. Good DIPA sweetness up front, but then an integrating change to malty and almost chocolate tones towards the end. Boozy. Not much pine or tropical fruit, but grapefruit is present. Interested to see how it will change as it warms up.

Aroma has notes of citrus and pine hop aroma. Color is a light gold with an average white head. Flavor favors the pine hop flavor over the citrus. Malt flavor is light with notes of bread. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's an average imperial IPA.

I had this solo on 4.6.14. Golden pour with no lasting head. Smell is super piney with some citrus notes. Flavor is the same - but the pine is too earthy and not super pleasant. ACHops (1688) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2015
On tap @ Pony Bar. Pours clear pale golden with thin white head. Aroma is dank juicy citrusy hops, thin caramel malt. Taste is grainy, somewhat harsh malt followed by earthy bitter hops, nice juicy dark citrus notes. Great flavor here, the malt just didn’t stand up to the hops for me.
