Pours a clear gold with a creamy white head.
Smells of mostly piney/citrusy hops. Very little malt detectable, but also had food at the table so didn’t get the best nose.
Holy bitter Batman! Pine and more pine from the hops and a weird roasted barley thing. The malt profile almost seems like something out of a stout. Everything combined together just made this a complete bitter bomb. Not well balanced at all and the flavors didn’t work together.
Mouthfeel and carbonation were about what you’d expect from an IPA.
Not worth it. I love IBU’s and have had very few beers ever I’ve described as "too bitter" but this one is way unbalanced.

Single can from Julio’s. Pours out a cloudy light amber. Little to no head. Light sweet malty aromas. Flavor is interestingly bitter up front. Almost like eating coffee beans. Watery mouthfeel. Can’t get over that extreme dry bitterness though. This is a mess! HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Aroma of Pineapple, caramel, a little bit...minty? Lightly sweet flavor, modest bitterness on the finish, taste isn’t exactly world-shattering but a solid all-around IPA flavor. Good beer, most notable for being extremely cloudy with lots of floating sediment. AirForceHops (7243) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Draft, Portsmouth Brewery’s guest tap. Has an orange / gold color with thin quickly vanishing head. Nose is floral with hints of citrus and caramel malt. Flavor is me is about average for a standard IPA. Flavor is caramel sweetness, light pine, plenty of floral hops. After the sip I get a lightly lingering grassy note to go with the floral hops. Maybe I have become jaded by huge Imperial brews because this just didn’t stand out to me at all. NOTHING wrong with it, very drinkable but it get lost in my memory of hundreds of IPA’s. davidajensen (206) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Tasty beer. It is a little to bitter to make it sessionable, but it is nice full, hoppy beer. Orangish in color and very hazy. The hops are oily and leave quite a bit of lacing. There is quite a bit of pine in the aroma.

Poured from tap. Hazy orange color, small white head. Average hops, glowers and citrus smell. Full oily bodied beer with a long lasting flavor and a bold bitter finish

Cloudy orange color, not much head. Great citrus aroma, with an oily, bitter grapefruit rind finish. Disappointing after the great smell. TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013

Tasted on 9/8/13 from a 16oz can. Pours cloudy burnt orange with a thick, fluffy white head that slowly recedes to thick, rocky lace. The nose is a balanced combination of floral citrus hops and some bread malt. The flavor is the same with the bread coming through a bit more toasted and the hops nicely bitter. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long toasted bread and bitter floral and citrus peel finish. mcox90 (2088) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 3, 2013
16 oz can. Pours orange with a one finger white head. Minor lace. Aroma is orange zest & pine. Orange & pine is repeated in the flavor. Around the middle of the glass you pick up some biscuit flavor. Medium bodied with a soft easy to drink palate. New to New Hampshire & I’ll have to check out some of their other brews.
