3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Due South. Very hoppy with a dry finish. Got a good amount of malt backing with slight citrus in the flavor.
Super hazy golden and peach coloured body with a thinnish, one to just two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of honey, resinous hops at first with a big dose of citrus, juicy mangoes and a big dose of flowers as well - quite strong and very nice. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong rich malt flavours show first with a big but not overpowering hop flavour with almost no bitterness at all, very mild in those terms. Aftertaste shows some honey, a touch of oranges and citrus, a good deal of malt and some more fresh hop notes that have a touch of pine and a bigger dose of resin. Overall, a pretty nice Imperial IPA that shows way more juice and hop character that alcohol, pungency or malty flavours - nice in those terms for sure and bordering on the side of a 'normal' NE 'style' of IPA. Good to try and well worth grabbing if you can get it quite easily. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Corner Store (Bait and Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida on 26-December-2017 for US$3,59 sampled in my hotel room on 01-January-2018 in the middle of the day after doing the morning session at Epcot with my three kids, here at the Walt Disney World [Dolphin]. solidfunk (9720) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2017
Lots of pine and some root like bark like licking tree trunks. Resin. Golden pour with good head and lacing. Bitter finish. Tap at Yard House. CpyNPrnT (637) - Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2017
Paired with some lobster mac and cheese, aroma is pine and fruity, taste is bitter, slightly dry, would try again. Ibrew2or3 (8912) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2017
12oz can, courtesy of the amazing markwise, pours with a hazy copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a tight dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up pine hops and a thin soft citrus note. The taste delivers a blast of firm pine hoppiness with solid bitterness and minimal resiny notes. Behind the tall pininess is a thin grapefruit citrus hop bitterness and an even thinner tangerine like tanginess. This is fully bitter with mostly pine hops and it's hitting the spot right now. ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 13, 2017
A really nic IPA. Grapefruity and sharp. Pleasant aroma, mostly citrus, and a sweet finish. Tried with Jess at Bouelvardia in 2017.

12 oz can poured at home. Hazy orange caramel color with yeast floaters. Big tropical lemony hop nose. Resin bitter rounded by some orange. Not much in the way of malt to balance the bitter.

Really liked it, it was bold packed with flavor. A bit out of the trend of right now, really malty, no real tropical mouthfeel. But really good beer. I saw bad comments, but you just have to know what to expect. Toomio (612) - Joensuu, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2017
Vähän tujua aloitusolueksi. Varmasti hyvä loppuillan juomaksi. Tölkkivetoinen. UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 25, 2017
Appearance: hazy pale amber with one fat finger of loose ivory head with decent retention, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel and toffee, resiny pine, citrus, floral. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, high bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter oily finish. (3/5)
Well, it didn’t deliver what I was hoping, that’s for sure. Very much an old-style D/IPA, heavy on the malt and blunt with the bitter. I’m not opposed to big bitter, but I prefer it to have an edge, and not be obscured by heavy malt sweetness. At least it’s got some dankness, so it’s got that going on - but it doesn’t do enough to recommend it. (13/20)
