Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to Brian. The aroma is grapefruit, pine, caramel, light cardboard. The flavor is grapefruit rind, pine, light cardboard, slight oxidation. ineedbeer (2331) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle courtesy of the catman.
Aroma has a light maltiness with a bit of caramel and moderate cracker and biscuit notes. Moderately strong tropical fruit hop notes with some melon and mango. Some medium light citrus and stone fruit skins. A hint of pineapple.
Pours a hazy, brownish orange with a small, thick, slightly off white head that slowly recedes to the edges. Medium light lacing and small legs.
Flavor is slightly sweet with moderate cracker notes and some lighter caramel and toasted bread. Flavor has moderately strong bitterness. Medium hop notes with tropical fruit and lighter stone fruit and citrus.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, but slightly watery with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice beer with decent sweetness. Good hop aroma, but could use a bit more in the flavor. Darker color than the malt profile lets on in the aroma and flavor. BrewHaMeister (457) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Bottle pours hazy amber with a thin white head and lacing. Aromas of citrus, caramel, grapefruit, and hop resin. Flavor is mild bitter. Yum. That1Guy (2241) - Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2015
One of the best labels of all time. Love it. Hazy orange pour with a bit of a head. Lots of hoppy passion fruit on the nose, mango and yum. A bit low on the carb for my taste. Dry, bitter finish. Quite nice. jahshuwuh (567) - USA - SEP 26, 2015
Medium dark golden, finger cream white head. Smells of pine, citrus, slight chemical, savory, rye. Taste is a candy sweet malt beneath a spicy rye/cocoa like hop, a tad savory, pine. The sweetness almost reminds of a candy shell of an m&m. Has some darker malt like tastes than most IPA's. Interesting flavors.

2015 bottle. Exactly as advertised. The subconscious composes paradisiacal scenes of malty waves crashing on a ripe lupulin landscape cascading hop flavors and aromas in profuse abundance. Balanced in every detail and gushing resinous, exceptional citrus flavors and aromas that collaborate with soft bready notes surrendered from premium English golden malted barley.

Karben4 Fantasy Factory IPA has a thin, off-white head, an initially clear, golden-orange appearance, which gets very murky, once the brown sludge at the bottom of the bottle is swished and poured in. The aroma is of tropical fruit, hop resin, flower nectar, and rather intense hop resin. Taste is of sweet, white bread, sugar crystals, lightly browned bread crust, hop oil, and pine. Mouthfeel is medium, and Karben4 Fantasy Factory IPA finishes dry and drinkable. RJT olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2015

Bottle. The aroma is great citrus hop. Strong grapefruit and slight grass / pine too. Great example of regular IPA. doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Cloudy, Amber, white head, and mild lacing. Citrus, orange, mild lemon, and caramel aroma. Full bodied, great balance, medium bitterness, creamy quaff, and lemony lasting notes.
