Draft at Ideltyme. Orange and juicy with white head. Mild hops on a big ABV double. I love this. JStax (7396) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2016

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, creamy, somewhat lasting, beige head that leaves some lacing. Weak aroma of pine and hay, medium body, appropriate carbo, solid malt backbone and a lightly bitter finish. Not terribly exciting. bigda83 (879) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle share. Pours a mostly clear amber with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, sweet malts. Flavor follows the nose, a bit too sweet and malted for my liking in an IPA. Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, Finish had some bitter pine mixed in with sweet malts. BuckeyeBoy (9218) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 21, 2016
On tap at idletyme brewing. Pours out a golden topped with a small head. Nose is pine citrus hops a nice malty sweetness. Taste is more of the pine citrus hops and a caramel malt sweetness. DocLock (11236) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Shared bottle at McConnell’s (a Craft Ale Beer God) house. Poured turbid straw colored with frothy, white head. Nose was that great Vermont IPA nose, with the grapefruit, honeydew, tangerine. Tasted super smooth, with great hops paired with the great fruit. Outstanding. fiulijn (21537) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy light amber color with medium compact head. The aroma is very fresh, fruity, and piney. Despite the high ABV, the body is very lean, also because very dry for an IIPA; the flavor has some cereally and toffeish malt quality; the hops have a lot to offer too, tropical fruits, some sweet orange, and a dash of pine needles.
There’s some serious good job here. Wonderful.
