Pours golden with a thin wispy off-white head. Resinous, thick, juicy, hop delicousness, chewy pine and mango. Medium to full bodied with lively carbonation. Wonderful. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle from Save On in Ohio, nice light golden orange pour with a thin white head. Aromas of big juicy hops, citrus/pineapple. Taste is similar with a drying pine finish.

Draft. Light amber body. Off-white head. Aroma of leafy hops, earth, pine, resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Nice balance between malts and hops, but lots of resin and pine atop caramel and raw grain. Losing my enthusiasm for the taste of resin bombs. Great aroma. SHIG (4965) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle: Poured a copper orange with an off white head. Aroma is strong hops and fruit. Taste is a rugged hops bitterness and some toffee malt. biggsbowler (629) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle - Pours an amber/orange with white head, good retention. The nose is filled with oranges, tangerines, and other citrus notes. The tastes is oranges and grapefruits with a bitter and a nicely balanced malt finish. I want more!!!

Was excited to try this beer, but was left a bit disappointed. All hops. No malt. At 7.5% there should be some room for a bit of sweetness on the back. Pours a beautiful clear gold with ample white head and fantastic lacing. Scent is a beautiful piney and citrus blend. The taste is just a bit of an onion bomb in my opinion. Well carbonated with light medium body. Plan on giving this another go when I have the chance. Bottle - Trade from FooFaa Oly (67) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2013
This is the prototype of an IPA. Hops assault you right away, but it doesn’t have a distinct bite that others, like Stone, are known for. It’s bitter, but balanced, and it lingers for a good minute. I say it’s the prototype because there isn’t much that deviates from that...there aren’t pronounced notes of anything like grapefruit or resin. It’s just your average IPA profile, but incredibly well done. tom10101 (6297) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle (12 oz). Thanks to Randall! Clear golden/orange with a medium white head and sticky lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, malt/caramel, floral presence and sweetness notes. Taste is moderately sweet with pine, citrus, malt/caramel, floral notes, light alcohol presence and moderate bitterness. Medium body. Moderately dry. Medium carbonation. Good IPA. There’s no bottling date, so I can’t tell how old is this one, but it’s probably not as fresh as it could be. Still a more than decent IPA that I would drink on a regular basis.

Meh, for some reason Ratebeer lost my rating and I need to enter it again. Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle thanks to Tom, thanks a lot! Let me sum it up (I don’t want to enter the full length review again for now): this isn’t too balanced and borders on being harsh. Head doesn’t stay or leave any lacing. I don’t like the hop schedule (aroma and bitter) that much. Seems a bit weak to me for a medal winner. Also, please start putting some best before information on your bottles.
Bottle shared at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a amber/orange with white head. Nose is chalked full of beautiful citrus (orange/grapefruit). Good bit in the end. Top notch IPA.
