Solid IPA from the capitol! Pour is a nice amber with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy and the finish is great. Ctplt777 (530) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2015
One of the best East Coast IPA’s I’ve had. Really big candied fruit and and subtle pine. Tastes like a big juicy mess of candied fruit its great. Theres a sweet malt backbone that doesn’t dominate the beer which happens so often. Really good ipa Bork (455) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2015
Nice and fresh with well balanced bitterness that lasts. Long finish not for those with a sweet tooth. Aldrichio (1) - Alabama, USA - SEP 13, 2015 does not count
I just like the taste of this beer. I don’t know enough about beer yet to give an analytical type of rating. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2011

DRAFT at Washington DC Hilton....pours a nicely cloudy copper / orange with citrusey nose....and even more piney / hoppy taste....without too much booze...really a fine beer. blipp (9278) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 7, 2012
Draft. Pours orange with a big off white head. Big citric and fruity hoppy aroma, with lighter piney notes and a light malty sweetness. The flavor has piney hops, citrus fruity sweetness, and caramel malts. Good shit right here. FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Poured from 12oz can to tulip:
Pours a chill-hazed mid amber with a nice looking, loose expanding head. Nice sticky lacing.
The nose is good and heavy - I’m struggling to pin this one down. There’s a nice variety of hop use here. Fruity, citrus, some apple.
The taste isn’t as complex as the nose would suggest. Leafy, obvious hops. The pine bite has been dialed back to spruce. Nice citric qualities.
Overall, this is a great beer. Wouldn’t mind having this one added to MN distribution. Ratman197 (14842) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Can courtesy of CraftBeerDesign (thanks Geoff) poured a hazy orange amber with a small lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of bread, grapefruit, skunk bud, pine and a hint of orange zest. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of bread, grapefruit, pine and light orange zest with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

12oz can, $2 at Beer Run, poured into a snifter. Good, foamy thin white head. Totally hazy amber color. Tons of particles suspended in the glass, very cool-looking. Head leaves plenty lace. Very nice big hoppy flavor - pine, grapefruit, resin, some floral. Orange zest, light pepper in the finish. Big assertive bitterness. Smooth carbonation, kind of a creamy texture. Thicker finish, moderate-to-big body. A great IPA for lovers of IPAs. "Dank" describes it well.
