Pours a nice golden color with a thin white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is superb with tons of citrus, pine and an abundance of hops. The taste is very citrusy up front with a lot of hops in the middle and a bitter hop finish. Mouth feel is great. The palate has a hint of citrus piled on with a variety of hops. Very crisp and refreshing!

Draft, Dewey's, draft. Clear, golden. Head didn't last. Hoppy, grapefruit notes, but not terribly strong. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I remember liking this a whole lot more, on tap, at fat heads in Pittsburgh. In a bottle Iím not as impressed. Still very good IPA, but not earth shattering. Lots of sediment is a turn off for me also. I will try this one again someday and see if this bottle is just an anomaly.

edwardbass (808) - Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Darkish-yellow color, aroma of citrus and mildly pine hops. Taste is citrus hops up front and the piney hops overtake, but not in an overpowering way. Not much malt, which is fine with me. Fairly high carbonation. Very dry with a mid-length bitter aftertaste. A very, very good IPA. 12 oz bottle from Crown Liquors downtown in Indianapolis.

Thanks to Homer321 for sending two of these wl IPAs in our trade! Slightly hazy medium gold body with a huge sticky white head. Light pineapple hop aroma. Light but firm bitter hop flavor, nice long dry bitter finish.

PorterPounder (7612) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, soft snow white head with just a hint of lacing. Aroma has some solid spruce notes, spearmint accents. Flavor is full-bodied and bold with some grapefruit citrus bitterness, a touch of mango fruitiness, some caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it . Pleasantly surprised.

Aurelius (5154) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Terrible label. Squat 12 oz bottle. Clear, honey gold beer, thin lacy head. Kat-whizzy AIPA aroma - grapefruit, pine, kat, caramel, pineapple. There are some chemical, sulphury tones that Iíd consider a flaw. Hoppy, resinous, grapefruit, pineapple, not too sweet. Slightly heavy body, starchy mouthfeel. Dry finish, looong hop aftertaste. Given that the Sculpin is right across the aisle for less money, this wonít become a go-to fave. ABC, Betton.

Thanks to my buddy for sharing this on the train ride to FOBAB. Very bitter. Pineapple and citrius. More bitter. Tastes like an imperial.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pours hazy amber with an ample white head, but with more than a little flaky sediment that resembles citrus pulp. I donít see this mentioned anywhere else, so maybe itís an anomaly. Subdued citrusy hop aroma with the slightest bit of pineapple. Nicely balanced flavor with a long bitter finish. I enjoyed this, but apparently not as much as others.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2013
12oz bottle, no date but presumed to be fresh.

Pours lightly hazy copper/amber with a nice white head with excellent retention and leaves really nice drippy webs of lacing behind.

Aroma is pretty dank, marijuana, pine, orange/citrus, resinous hops and caramel malt. Very good strength.

Flavor is very piney, resinous, with some underlying citrus notes. Fairly strong caramel malt backbone in the middle, very strong & sharp bitterness on the finish with a little alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, sticky, with good carbonation.

Excellent IPA and a real treat to get a chance to try this. Thanks Mark!
