From a pottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

473 ml can. Enjoyed at Austin, TX. Pours an orange golden colour with a white slightly foamy head. Aroma of orange, dank hops, caramel and resin. Flavour of heavy dank bitterness, orange, strong resin, caramel and some herbal notes. Full bodied. Long lingering bitter finish. Great!

Can. Cloudy orange with frothy white head. Subtle hop aroma. Smooth malt with nice hop balance. Nice dry finish. Nothing special, but nothing wrong either. Very solid IIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jhamp9 (1923) - Corinth, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2017 Clear red orange pour with an off white head. Great lacing. Aroma is caramel, pine, grapefruit and toast. Taste is citrus rind, toffee, tropical, toast and pine. Pretty firm bitterness that lingers. Medium body.

3.2
DocJitsu (2015) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2017
Pours a dark honey-golden with a fat, well-retaining brown-cream head. Orange and pineapple on the nose with a hint or two of alcohol. Flavors are more bland than the nose would suggest. Alcohol bitters the beer relatively quickly.

tennisjoel (1476) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2017
The beer’s peach appearance with a fine white head which has significant lacing. Aroma is a bit subdued for an IPA. Piney resiny hops. Spritzy mouthfeel and yummy resin like hops. Galaxy hops are one of my more favorite hop varieties. This is very drinkable for 8%. Its a pleasure and it would be easy to knock back a few of these.

3.2
hershiser2 (3537) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours murky orange-brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is pine, resin, grapefruit, toast, licorice. Flavor is pine, grapefruit rind, resin. A bit of a sweetness in there that fades. It feels tired.

3.6
Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 12, 2017
Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a semi-hazy amber color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that fell off at a decent pace. Slight messy lace. The aroma had some piney/resin bitterness playing with some sweet biscuits/somewhat like breadiness. The flavor leaned into the malts with a sweet glance to pummel the hop tones down a little bit. Still, a nicely blended aftertaste running into the finish. The feel was about medium bodied with a decent sipping quality as the ABV felt appropriate. Carbonation felt fine. Overall, another one of those beers that I would say is an "old school DIPA." I’d have again for me, but can understand why a ton of hopheads aren’t going to like this.

reggiedunlop (3725) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2017
Pours a hazy amber with a thick off white head. ..decent retention and lacing. Aroma has some piney, resinous hoppiness, hints of tea, and a bit if sweet grainy/biscuity notes. Flavor is bitter with rwsin and pine...some slight sweet maltiness that disappears quickly. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, resinous bitter finish that lingers. Old school feel.
