Shared bottle at BBGTC tasting. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of oranges and grapefruit, fruity, catpiss light,berries, all in all quite pleasant and inviting aroma. Taste is strong and heavy grapefruit and pine, green hops. Very dry and bitter, ends even more drier, good one.

The high alcohol content creates a perfect bed for the rich malt to meld with the piny hops. Fantastic beer with excellent not over carbonated mouth feel. drcboehm (104) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2012
650 ml bottle. Nice light reddish brown color. Sweet malt smell and taste. Accompanied by medium hop. Delicious all around. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle: Thanks Andrew:
Medium sized vast creamy head, which changes slowly into vast thick creamy lacing on top of a hazy orange amber colored beer.
Smell hops, citrus, grapefruit, creamy malts, hop liquor, piney soap, strong citrus.
Taste hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, creamy malts, hops, light spices, creamy.
Aftertaste is hops, bitter, spicy, light dry, malty and light creamy grass.
Low carbo, soft creamy silky spicy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy light oily texture.
Nice beer, not too complex and I am sure that this one fresh is killer.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2015 Pours clear golden with nice head. Heavy lacing as head recedes. Huge aroma of honey, citrus and pine. Very similar to Founders Double Trouble or Bell’s Hopslam. The best smelling beer I have ever encountered, wow! Sweet honey citrus start, with nice hop bite going down. Piney hops aftertaste sticks with you. Nice refreshing mouthfeel, but with slight alcohol warmth. Hides booze extremely well. A new top 5 DIPA for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone GranvilleTim (1855) - Granville, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2012
So glad to see it here in the Illinois Valley area finally. Light amber pour with an off-white head. Wonderful aroma of fruity hops. Taste is a nice balance of malt and hops. Super hoppy but not to a point of too much. Hop flavor sticks to your pallete. Alcohol not noticable until you had several bottles. The flavor sticks in your mouth long after the beer is gone, UncleKorm (1319) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2012
