The aroma is strong with hops and citrus, just like one would expect. There is a cider-like quality to it as well, certainly due to the high ABV. The head is white on top of a beautiful, frosty bright amber. The head settles down, but does not go away, leaving thick laces on the glass as it goes down. The taste is bitter to the extreme and the presence of alcohol is right up front. The bitterness stays with you for quite awhile, even after the carbonation burn fades away. This is no session IPA, this is an evening-ender and should be the last bottle one opens for the night. For such a strong brew, hop heads will appreciate such lasting bitterness. This is one hell of a beer and demands respect. blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Fruity and green oniony hops. Light malty sweetness, and medium bitterness in the finish. Good, not great. Racegoer (354) - Indiana, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pours smooth and bubbly in to a gorgeous gold color. It’s soooo good when it hits the lips. Aroma of unknown hops, but when it hits your palate you know you have a quality beer. Bought at Keg Liquors and was recommend by the guy that was working as he knew and asked what I want. I’d search high and low for this beer. Extremely Recommended! badgerben (5177) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Dark copper color with a small head. Lucious hop aroma of mango and orange. Bracingly bitter, but not to battery acid levels. Lots of hop flavor: grassy, fruit, orange. Moderate malt and some caramel towards the end. hE5AdEv3qeqAsU5r (80) - - OCT 20, 2013
Huge grassy hop aroma, as to be expected. Deep clear golden color with large bubbles in the head. Immediate flavor is slightly syrupy and malty until the hops hit. Not nearly as bitter as I expected it to be coming from GF, but seems more hop flavor oriented. A slight bit boozy, more bitterness comes out in the finish. Carbonation is appropriate, nothing special to say about the palate. Solid enjoyable beer, but doesn’t knock my socks off like several other GF beers do.

Cloudy gold pour, thick white head. Nose is leafy, green, wet hops. Beautifully bitter. Middle is malty sweetness, sprinkle of hop body. Finish is full bodied hop bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden here, be careful. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was strong pine and resin with a tangy undertone. The flavor was bitter with a strong alcohol presence and fairly strong though rough pine, resin, black pepper, hot pepper, catbox, cardboard, yeast and a sour almost toffee undertone. Very long harsh and bitter finish of alcohol, pine, resin and pepper. Thick and full bodied. Ok. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottled, orange color with slight foam, aroma and flavor is sweet nectarines and point Reyes Blue Cheese, sweet syrupy finish Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle pours clear dark yellow with a thick white head and nice lacing. Great hop aroma of citrus and pine which I noticed immediately on opening the cap. Initial taste sweet malts followed by light fruits/citrus/pineapple. Finish of hop bitterness which is confident but not as much as you’d expect from a beer billed as a triple IPA. Thick palate, just a touch syrupy.Luvystypotables (1960) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Surprisingly light and drinkable.
Cotta hops nose, with a complex taste that is a pleasant surprise. Bread, citrus, fruit, with an oily slightly bitter palate.
