(12 oz bottle) Nice big strong hop aroma starts this beer out. The beer pours a clear light amber, with a thin white head. Nice powerful hop blast with a strong pine note. There’s just enough malts here to balance out the hops. Glad this one is in a bottle, because it can be a bit too dangerous to go to the bar and drink it by the pint there. One difference from the tap, the bottle is listed as 87 IBU, and 7.5% ABV.
Awesome IPA on draft at Champps in Collegeville. This beer had a massive amount of hops, in both the aroma, flavors and finish. The combination of hops used in this beer definitely define this one. I could have sat there and had a few more of these, but the 7.5 abv pretty much prevented that. I tasted of pine and citrus notes in the body as well. This beer deserves all the awards it seems to have won. It's absolutely fantastic! LIGONIER (5) - Ligonier, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2017 does not count
Great IPA, one of the finest I've tasted. The aroma is a heavy piney smell, a bit of pineapple too. Strong bitter taste but satisfying to any IPA fan. Very enjoyable to drink. jc1762 (1652) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 18, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 Bottle into a snifter showing well filtered pale amber with half a finger of quickly dissipating clean white foam.
The nose shows pronounced mandarin oranges with light pine around the edges.
The palate is well carbonated and medium bodied. Moderately intense flavors of blood orange with very light pine resin around the edges. Finish is strong sharp pine IPA finish. Not bad but bitterness is a bit strong. salvaticas (1021) - - NOV 4, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 Bottle pour. Nice traditional IPA. Pours a dark crisp amber. Strong hops on the nose. Medium strong bitterness but smooth flavor profile. Really good. lanastasis (8) - St. Marys, Kansas, USA - AUG 18, 2017 does not count
I’m not specifically a fan of west coast style iPas but this beer is so smooth it more than makes up for any conflicts in preference. Very enjoyable summer beer.

clear, amber color; beautiful citrus hop aroma; fantastic citrusy hop flavor with some pine notes; an assertive West Coast IPA; fairly light malt background lets the hops shine; outstanding chucklemation (1798) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2017
Pours a pale copper color with a white foam head. Aroma is bright and vivid citrus, pine, and floral hops and resin. Flavor is juicy citrus, resin, and pine. High bitterness. Has some carbonation and a medium body. Quite good. Emeister84 (2663) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2017

Pours an orange-yellow with little white head.
Beautiful citrus favor; bursts of grapefruit with lime and orange not far behind. Slight malt that perfectly compliments the intense, hoppy profile of this fantastic IPA.
Would order again, and again.. and again.... aaand again.
Refreshing, diverse, genius. scarletfire65 (1534) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Draft in the Philly Airport. Fruity and juicy nose, with apricot, orange, cream, spearmint, resin, pine. Bitter, fresh, juicy finish. About as good as an IPA gets these days.
