Flaska på Bishop. Bärnstensfärgad med luftigt smutsvitt skum. Doft av kola. Rejäl beska. dojken (678) - SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2017
Flaska på Muris. Svag maltig frisk pilsnerdoft. Väldigt maltig pepprig. Jag förnimmer fasen en liten liten sötma som snabbt förvinner. Efterbeskan nja inget vidare. Den går väl att dricka men inget jag köper eller gärna dricker igen!! Iznogud (4703) - CROATIA - AUG 14, 2017
On tap at the brewery, Santa Barbara. Pours cloudy dark orange to amber with off-white head. Hoppy, citrus, pine, caramel malty, sweet, dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Zymurgeist2 (2439) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 10, 2017
From bottle to glass. Clear copper with moderate off-white head head that retains as small bubbles. Aroma of orange and citrus. Flavor is orange hop dominated, but also with sweet malt. There is a cloyingness from the retained sugars.

Sweet and floral nose. Flavor has more fruit than expected making it a little more similar to the other two than would be preferred. Clean. Pretty good. Ron (4262) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2016
On tap at the Brewery during a tour with Kara, Andy and Patty. Pours clear copper with a creamy off-white head. Lots of hop. Resin, floral, citrus. Med body. Flavor is very hoppy. Citrus, resin and I think floral. It’s bitter as all get out. Oh, there’s some light roast caramel backbone. This finishes slightly dry and bitter, but not quite so harsh as many.

I had this one at the brewery. This was probably my favorite I had this day. A sweet and hoppy aroma. Flavor is bold, lots of hops. Alcohol is masked. Strykzone (7800) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Clearish honey gold with a nice three finger off white head. Tat work lacing. The aroma is classic west coast hops but is not quite a prominent as some. The flavor is pretty much the same. Big complex fruit with citrus that includes grapefruit, pine, and tropical. A resiny feel is slick but smooth. Some floral and honey notes. It became sugary at the finish. This is an enjoyable and tasty beer. But for an 8% ABV beer I kept hoping it would go BANG on the flavor. hayduke (5731) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured clear copper. White head. Pine, citrus, and floral hop nose. Medium body. Very resinous mouth feel. Flavor is a lot of hops with pine strong, then the citrus and floral. The finish is very pine bitter. Overall classic west coast IPA. A little alcohol shows up at the end as well along with some earth. Could have done without that alcohol showing up but generally a good beer.
