12 oz single bottle from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Light hazy orange appearance with a lacy, lingering beige head. Aroma of musty hops, toasted malt, light citrus zest and light yeast. Similar flavor, musty and moderately bitter with mild sweetness. Medium to full body with a lingering resinous hop finish. Unfortunately there is no freshness date and this is most likely a Shelf Turd.

Lemon and other citrus fruits, sweet grain malts, caramel. Hazy, dark gold, small, creamy, white head. Light bitter. Bitterness intensifies, bitter orange, grapefruit, resin and pine, soft carbonation, very bitter and dry finish. Very nice IIPA, nice citrus fruits and sweet malts throughout. Bottle at The Old Fashioned, Madison, WI.

muzzlehatch (4876) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2016
8 ounce draught snifter at Mitchells Hilltop, Stevens Point WI, August 2nd. Pours a cloudy, not-quite-opaque bright orange, with a bit of wispy head that lasts...citrus (orange and grapefruit) dominates the nose, with a touch of pine resin and a bit of burnt/smoky woodiness...drier than most to the tongue, though some noticeable fruity sweetness sets in around the middle...reasonably strong bitterness throughout, light acidity, generally well-balanced though theres a bit too much of that woody dryness on the palate, and its just a might thin and attenuated. Solid enough but certainly nothing special to my tastes.

BeerInHeaven (386) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2016
pours a slightly murky amber orange with a medium off white head. Outstanding aroma of tropical floral, pineapple, tangerine citrus. Juicy mouth feel. Big citrus taste. Grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple. The 108 IBUs are muted at first, but creep in and take over, but still with a grapefruit citrus twang. Im a hop bomb lover, and this one is right in my wheelhouse! Love it!

commonmac (1091) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2016
12 oz bottle purchased at Haskells in St. Paul and consumed with blonderedhead out of a Belgian snifter glass. Pours a hazy, golden orange color with surprisingly little head. Some good piney resin on the nose complementing a malty presence and citrus/tropical fruit. Taste is assertive with hops coming forward initially, a malty backbone taking over in the middle, and a hop bitterness towards the finish. There are elements of caramel, pineapple, floral, and some pine. This definitely falls on the more malty side of double IPAs Ive tasted. Its not illuminating anything new in the style but its definitely drinkable. Id consider it pretty run of the mill.

Ron (3693) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Bottle. This beer poured a medium caramel-tan color with a medium sized creamy tan head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweetish pine. The flavor was tangy and sweet pine, resin, a bit of grapefruit and floral hops. Medium length tangy and sweet finish with lingering pine and floral hops. Moderately full bodied.
