MorganBaughman (149) - Long Beach, Mississippi, USA - JAN 20, 2013
We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. Way too hoppy for us. ChainGangGuy (4930) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Appearance: Pours out a hazed, muted orange-hued body with an off-white (faintly yellowed) head.
Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Smell: Peppery notes and resiny hints integrated into a scent of orange marmalade atop the base maltiness yielding notes of bready pale malts, a little bit of golden syrup. Slight whiffs of alcohol, too.
Taste: Bready pale maltiness with a modest sweetness akin to treacle in the fore. Floral, citrusy hops, slightly resinous with a moderate degree of hop bitterness. As with the nose, a little alcohol showing. Dry, bitterish, citric finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’ll do in a pinch!
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a clear gold body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up mango like tropical fruit notes with just a sliver of pine off in the background and a slim sweet malt base that is showing through. The taste is similar with a decent level of mango tropical fruitiness as well as some bitter tangelo that gets sweetened up by a little bit of malt. The hops are resiny with just a little smattering of flavor hops too. It seems to be more of a IPA level of richness and flavor and hoppiness rather than a IIPA.

Sample at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. This beer is a clear bronze color with a medium thin off-white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus and hops. Medium to full body with flavors of citrusy hops and grainy malt. The finish is short and lightly hopped. Just average overall. nimbleprop (8761) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Sampled at GABF. Pours a clear gold with some spitty head. Nose is OK, pine, honey, citrus, earthy. Flavor is OK too, sweet, malty, oranges. Medium bodied, orangey finish. A little bland, needed more citrus pop.

Appearance: Clear golden with a small off-white head
Aroma: Mild caramel and grapefruit
Taste: Caramel and pine
Into a pint glass. Nice two fingers of foam head. Cloudy copper with lots of bubbles visible.
A soft grapefruit smell.
Bold pine and lemon taste. An almost crushing bitterness without let up.
Medium body and moderate carbonation.
A solid double IPA. From beginning to end it lets you know with its bitterness. A little more complex taste would be bonus. rumproasts (6035) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Tap. Golden with one finger head. Soapy and bitter. Light hops. I can’t believe someone recommended this to me. This is awful. Are all beers in AR complete shit? Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Taste at the brewery. Ok, so this is a heavyhanded attempt compared to other double IPAs I’ve had, not very graceful. Dark yellow, clear, laces pretty well. All I taste are pine needles, unfortunately. No alcoholic taste, at least. It needs something else. Not a session beer. Cuff_Links (40) - - SEP 1, 2012
Pours an orange cloudy haze, light head. Aroma is more malt than citrus. Some hop up front on taste, medium to light bitterness, then some floral on the finish. Medium body. Not a big hoppy DIPA but a big beer.
