Bomber. Hazy ipa loaded w/ the scent of oily citrus pine trees. Above average bite & complex palate. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Big time hops. Love what these guys are putting out. A really hoppy brew with a quality malt palate. Quality. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Has a super fresh citrus hop scent. Nice pine taste with a really nice lasting bitter. Has to be a top IPA for me.

Copper color with a thin white head. Aroma of resin and citrus hops. Great balance, nice caramel malt background. Well done, solid IPA BeerNeedy (126) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 25, 2012
From a 22 oz bottle poured a coppery color with a small white head. Definitely well turned out IPA aroma. Initially the taste is pedestrian IPA but then it blooms into a full blown palate ripping hop singing beauty!

Hops a bit too unbalanced. The hops dominate, of course. Aside from the citrus, pine, and dirt aroma, there is a distinct foot smell. The citra hops are underwhelming. llcooldave (1224) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Soapy "Irish Spring" aroma with some pine and citrus. Pours a very golden amber color. Sweet toasted malt flavors followed by more citrus and an interesting sweet pineapple aftertaste that I’ve never tasted in an IPA. Overall, a very awesome IPA. gringo332 (645) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Goldish color, medium head. Fresh floral, citrus hop aroma. Medium bitter, resin, slight sticky. Medium body. Pine on taste, citrus hop. Bitter finish Maris (1586) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2012
From a 1 Pt 6 Fl Oz bottle on 8/10/2012. Pours a medium to dark golden with a big fluffy white head. Has a very pleasant floral, fruity, resiny hop aroma. The flavour follows suit, with sweet citrus fruit (especially orange and mandarin) up front, followed by a big sticky, resiny, piney hop bitterness, with just a touch of grapefruit. Not too much maltiness is evident, but this is none the less a lovely, well balanced fruit/hop driven IPA. rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours a clear darker gold with a one finger white head. Really good head retention with decent lacing.
Aroma is much better than many other IPA’s I have had. Lots and lots of pine along with a touch of citrus. Really a nice blend of earth and citrus here. A little bit of light wood too with pinecones.
The flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. More pine than citrus but not nearly as strong as was present in the aroma. Moderate to high bitterness throughout along with some more wood and pine resin. Finish is moderately sticky with bitterness lingering long after all flavors have subsided.
Overall, a better than average IPA. It is definitely hop-centric with malt being nearly undetectable but the hops in this really work well. One to pick up every now and then.
