Muddy orange with good, creamy, off-white head / Rich nose of citrus, cut pine, caramel, and candied sugar / Medium to full body, malty and somewhat sweet, chewy, big hop bite with bitter finish / Big flavors of grapefruit, cut pine, caramel, lime, orange, and grain spice / Pretty much a double ipa, in body and alcohol. ryanfolty (2655) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2012
October 18, 2012 tap at Hammerheads. Golden orange pour with some head and lacing. Weak citrus hop aroma. Taste seemed to be more pine than citrus hop and a touch of caramel sweetness. Medium bodied and a very mild bitter finish. asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a off white head. Aroma is pine, orange, and pineapple. Flavor upfront is pine and tropical fruits with a sweet malty backbone primarily caramel. There is a bit of a spiciness coming in as well. On the palate the beer comes in with a great combination of a bitterness bite and a sweetness from the malt. Carbonation adds a bite too. knickskicks (1168) - - OCT 18, 2012
Tap at Rossi’s. Dark amber, off-white head. Nose is past-ripe tropical fruits, caramel, hop resin. Taste is mango, pineapple, and sweet malts. The malts are definitely not forgotten here. onceblind (10890) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Clear dark gold/copper with a thin ring of white head around the edge of the glass. Pungent hoppy resinous aroma of pine, grapefruit, fresh flowers, sticky hop resin, and a sweet citrusy caramel backbone. The flavor is big and bold and full with plenty of hoppy citrusy resinous goodness, moderate-to-strong bitterness, with a reassuring caramel sweetness to finish off with a kiss of grassy hops.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2013 Dank pine and resin hops and bitter hoppy finish. Good pick for the hop heads.
>>rerate...bumping up a bit. From can this time oddly enough, but really great tropical fruit bubble gum flavors I like that are pretty unique and that I don’t recall. colinize (316) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Pours hazy yellow with almost no head. Nice floral hop aroma. Very pleasant. Bitter but smooth. Really delicious. Served at 2012 GABF davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 11, 2012
12 oz can into a shaped pint glass. First Run, October 04, 2012 making it one week old. Thanks to robinsmv for the cans!!!
A - Clear dark amber body. Super dense off white head with sticky lacing and lasting retention. Right up there appearance wise with the best of them.
S - Dank and resinous hops with some pine and light tropical notes. Just a touch of onions. Caramel heavy malts balance the beer out.
T - Dank hops initially with a creamy resinous pine flavor. The finish is fresh grapefruit and caramel malts. The citrus on the end really works well off of the huge dank hops. Bitterness is lasting but moderate. Balance, balance, balance! Mouth feel is slick and syrupy.
O - Very well made IPA. Great balance between the caramel malts and dank and grapefruit hops. drewaha (129) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2012
On tap at the ginger man. Pours a clear light brown with medium head aroma is peach and grapefruit. Hoppy. Taste is similar. Nice malt upfront and bitter but not too bitter finish. Very tasty beer PrattBenjamin (32) - - OCT 9, 2012
Draft. Top Hops. Pours a hazy orange/straw color. Nice light color head with plenty of lacing. This IPA is more on the resin/pine side of things than citrus or herb. Big hop bouquet aroma. Beer itself is quite dry and texturally not huge. Lingering pine finish. pretty nice.
