Damn, this beer kicks arse! The pour is a golden yellow with a big frothy head with aromas of floral, fruity hops. This beer is sticky, resinous and seriously hopped with citrus and floral flavors backed with a malty, sweet body. Very fresh and very good! AndrewMichaelZ (63) - - JAN 25, 2014
Pours clear gold with a light creamy head which subsides to a light lacy topper.
Major pine and citrus on the nose. Light bodies with medium carbonation. Lingers just a bit in the palate with a hint of bitterness.
Drinks smooth with a perfect balance of hoppiness and malts.

Surprisingly light looking. Toasted grains, caramel, grapefruit and a healthy amount of hop bitterness. Malty and a bit thick feeling. Alcohol is well hidden. JHeath99 (1678) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a nice transparent gold with very little head and a bit of lacing. Aroma of citrus, oranges and pineapples mostly, with subtle hoppy hints. Taste is almost reverse, with upfront bitterness that fades into a floral sweetness. Very very nice beer. alliance100 (1152) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2014
12oz bottle - pours a vibrant gold , off white head with heavy lacing . Piney resinous aromas . Mild grapefruit , mango and tangerine flavors . The upfront bitterness leads to an almost mildly sweet and fruity finish . Outstanding !

1/22/2014. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Hoppy aromas, almost like an IPA with spice and tropical fruit. Bitter, malty, hoppy - so very good! DrinksAllKinds (14) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Good strong beer. Has a little bit of a different taste to it but it's still delicious. Not sure what it would pair with.

Despite what the label says, lol, this is a fine replacement for Brown Shugga. Hoppy like an IPA, not sure why its styled as an ASA, but that’s fine, I would have maybe put it in the red/amber ale category, abv isn’t high enough for an ASA. Reddish pour, thicker than thought, nice aroma of pine and citrus, maltier than an IPA, caramel and pancake like flavor. Nice one. VinegarStroke (426) - Napa, California, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle: Clear, deep straw or golden and good medium head. Massive hop lift. Very green aromatics. Slightly rubbery and certainly piney. You can’t see the malt. Dry, not sour and bitter. Dense, good weight and long. Very hoppy palate. Massive resiny, piney flavor.
Good beer. It’s not a strong ale. It’s a classics west coast IPA.
Very long and massive. GenDV138 (7285) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a honey gold with some tiny floaties, about a 3 finger off-white head. Decent webby lacing once the head recedes. Aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, light dank. Tasting notes of big tropical fruit, citrus, caramel, floral hops, a little toffee. Medium body with a semi-dry finish.
