This one is really sweet and thick and syrupy. It is not an easy drinker. I have trouble with IPAs over 8.5 or so, and this one doesn't break that trend. AWISLguy (3242) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2017
On tap at the Stone Grille in York, PA. Pale yellow golden pour with a white head. Nose is pine sol, and some citrus. Taste better, but the phenols are over the top. Shrug? 11.3 AdamChandler (5113) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 29, 2017
reddish orange color. small head. The smell is bitter oranges, pine cone and dank resin. well, I think it’s pretty old. very bread-like, nutty with graham and saltine and very old bitter oranges. puboflyons (3463) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 18, 2017
From the 12 fl. oz, bottle with a May 23, 2017 date stamped on the neck. The pour is orange-amber with a long lingering white foamy head. The aroma are full of citrus and pine hop characters while underneath there is a kind of wooden, herbal quality. No alcohol for 9%. Smooth and medium-bold body. The taste seems to be a letdown considering it is less than a month old as I drink it. I don’t get the same vibrant juiciness that the aroma suggested. It is more bland with more muted characters. A slight bite. johnnnniee (4376) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 13, 2017
12 oz bottle from Candia Rd
Slightly hazy deep golden color with a good sized long lasting frothy white head. Citrus pine and bread with bits of toffee and butterscotch bitterness. I was expecting more from this beer. Lingering bitter resinous aspirin alcohol and butter.

16 oz. dated 25 April, 17. Purchased at Greg and Jane’s Beer and Wine. Color a Crystal clear orange type appearance, thing spotty head in the glass. Aroma is weak danky pine, subtle tropical fruit, maybe caramel malts. gripweed57 (2738) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2017
Flavor is pretty nice. The light pine/ dankness plays real nicely with the fruits. The malty backbone doesn’t become sticky sweet. Decent mouthfeel, not sticky or overly malty. The overall drinkable character is pretty nice, balance is nice.
On tap at JoJo’s Tavern in Mercerville, NJ. Hazy tawny gold pour has a brief small white head. Citrus hop nose is big on lemon, mango and apricot. Intense bittersweet malt flavor is quickly dominated by the abundant hop bill. Floral at first, then just downright bold citrus and danky. Boozy notes come through in middle reminding you that this should be sipped, not quaffed. Earthy, dry hoppy finish. A decent 2IPA. GenDV138 (7470) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2017

On draft at Spacebar in Falls Church. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of pine, mandarin orange and mango. Juicy and bitter. jgb9348 (6399) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Super hazy copper and bronze coloured body with a thinnish, fast-dying off-white head. Aroma of oranges, curacao, light malt, earth and a very sweet and pungent hop kick. Medium-bodied; Assertive fresh grapefruity and orangey hop kick, some light malt notes, hints of alcohol and some very nice floral elements show well with a nice grassy and fragrant finish, full of character. Aftertaste shows a good orange and grapefruit sweetness, a big dose of alcohol and bitterness and a smooth malty backbone. Overall, a very nice citrusey and sweet Imperial IPA with a great body and smooth complexity, yet a relatively easy-to-drink beer throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 26-November-2016 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-December-2016.
