Pours a hazy golden copper with thin white head
Smells is pine, mango, hops, tropical fruit and citrus
Taste is extremely bitter and piney, with notes mango, grapefruit, dank ganja and citrus. Very Earthy. This is a hop bomb, which I love.
medium body, heavy carbonation.
Probably would be higher if I had it fresher. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2014
12 oz. bottle from my not so Secret Santa, umich03jm. Thanks man! Pours a hazed amber with a medium sized fluffy white head. Big hoppy aroma of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit notes. Some melon and juicy fruit. Flavor is quite bitter with a mild amount of sweetness. Balanced, yet hop forward. Quite tasty. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes long and bitter. Very nice. beechner224 (1024) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2014

Quercus (26) - - FEB 4, 2014
aroma: bright citrusy hops with tropical and pine notes (has a definite dry-hopped / whole cone presence as well), lightly sweet bready malt with medium range crystal notes.
taste: all hops up front, with lots of citrusy whole-hop character; but with a surprising punch of malt in the middle; and then some hop resin lingering in the finish.
Bottle in tulip. Nice deep orange amber pour. Small white head with good lace. Great fruity smell citra hops are powerful. Great amount of bitter too. Really high quality, more drinkable than most IPAs. OPIE788 (336) - Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Draft. This is a killer IPA. Great bitter pine resin flavors and aroma that sticks with you. I coukd drink a lot of this. beastmaster (381) - Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2014 Pretty white head. Sticky lacing. Great west coast IPA. Aroma- huge hit you in the nose citrus, pine, grapefruit, and pineapple. This beer came off thicker than I imagined and not as pungent on the pallet as the nose. Definitely can taste the simcoe, and cascade, but it seems tamed down to me. I want this to be a little fresher despite the fact that it was brewed late Dec 2013 and it’s only 2/3/14. Apparently, it’s criminal to rate this a 3.3. This is a re-rate. after reading what I wrote the first time the aroma of this beer stayed pretty true and deserved a better rating as did the taste. Very palatable beer tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Bottle: Almost perfect amber & copper color with decent clarity, covered by a big, foamy white head that mounts up high & leaves some fat lacing behind as it crawls down slowly. Aroma has notes of both tropical & citric fruits from the hops... Pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine. Subtle malt sugar sweetness balanced by bitter fruity pith notes. Back-end filled with pine, grass, & lightly spicy white pepper. Taste is, of course, hop forward. Notes of white pepper, herbal tea, grass, earth, & dirty hops. Very raw with a strong citric backside; orange & tangerine peel with lighter grapefruit rind & pineapple. A touch of finishing, sweet cracker malt as the flavor fades from the palate. If you can find this one fresh, it’s a deliciously citrusy IPA. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Hazy orange colored pour. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. Big aroma of malt intermingled with citrusy hops and toast. Bitter. Plenty of hops in the mouth with a peppery bite. Dry and very bitter. Not bad.
