12 oz. bottle from The Hop Yard, Raleigh (enjoy by July 3, 2016 so I just missed it by a few days). Dark orange pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit, wet grass, and toffee. The taste certainly features a bitter hop presence but there is a sturdy malt backbone that makes this almost akin to a barley wine. Tangerine, grapefruit rind, pine, caramel, and graham cracker are the noted flavors here. Nice beer! altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2016

Draught at Jet Rock Bar and Grill in Terminal B of PHL. Overt citrus aroma. Sweet malt, pine and citrus taste. Lots of residual pine. fuzzcro (295) - Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Very well might be my favorite IPA Nice brown head...not too much carbonation, nice lacing. ABV is high but it doesn’t overpower the delicious flavor of this brew. I will def drink this one again. rosskyle (796) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2016
12oz bottle. Clear orange Amber color with a white head. Tropical fruit funk aroma. Pine resin up front with a grapefruit finish. Medium body. Very good west coast IPA but could a little more hops.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a clear, deep golden with a white head. Piney, turpentine aroma. Rich, sweet, malty body with nice, tropical hops. Bitter finish but not to any extreme degree. Smooth and easygoing. 240516 jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours a burnt orange color with white head. Citrus, fruity hops, tangerine aromas. Citrus, hoppy, alcohol heat flavors. Medium to high bitterness. UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with one finger of creamy ivory head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pithy citrus, moderately resiny and dank pine, pale malt, floral, slightly earthy. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (9/10) Medium-full slightly slick body, moderate-high carbonation, lingering moderately bitter lightly warming finish. (4/5)
Oh yeah, that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout. Nice example of one of my favourite styles. Fresh enough that the hops haven’t lost ground to the pale (and maybe a hint of caramel) malt, big bitter but clean in the finish. The higher ABV is nearly completely integrated, manifesting only as a slight warming in the finish. Big without being overwhelming, confident without being brash. I could drink a whole lot of these.

12 oz. bb 07/03/2016 and indicates 9.0% abv. Orange-amber body sports a thin film of creamy bubbles. Nose is earthy potato, toffee, toast and sodden wood. Tastes of resin, earthy toffee, dried grass and light citrus zest. Long finish shows some lemongrass, booze and mint. Medium-plus body has smooth low-medium carbonation and a drinkable balance.
