"not super impressed with this one - just too many great iipas on the market to buy this agian, but it was ok. aroma and flavor of pine and bready malts, with a little citrus and ample bitterness to back it up." kseymour (1) - Olympia, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014 does not count
22oz bottle. Very pleasant smell slightly citrusy with a piney flavor and a hoppy aftertaste MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Om draft at Isaac Newton’s. This was just okay for me. Very piney finish, some caramel malts, some notes of grapefruit. The aftertaste was a bit harsh in the pine department. Could have been blended better. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a hazy copper/orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light speckled lacing clinging slightly.
The smell had some grapefruit/piney aromas here and there.
The taste was similar.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but not overbearing.
Overall, good DIPA, it’s nothing over the top but gets the DIPA fix done. MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
Amberish pour, white foamy head. Pine focussed taste with some nice hops too. A good IPA!

After pouring and expecting to see my future in a frothy head that over stayed it's welcome similarly to a drunk and inappropriate uncle on an obligatorily awful holiday event, I shuddered with disgust at the aroma of an "alpha dog" after eating an expired disregarded batch of purina. So... There's that. It is a beer. It has a cool label. But even an alpha dog sniffs the a$$ of other dogs.

Grass, grapefruit, rosehip aroma. Clear amber, medium head. Grass, overripe orange, solid bitterness. Good. aatje88 (1) - Seattle, - JUN 8, 2014 does not count
Bottle pour. Wonderful, dank, hoppy nose. Spicy, pine flavor. Great beer overall. I’ll be back for more. JesseMartineau (91) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
Beautiful nose, pine, floral, spice. Taste is not as good as nose, but still great, pine is prominent. onceblind (9699) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Slightly hazy copper under a sticky thin white head. Lovely nose with a bitter dose of piney and floral resins, with a sticky sweet note of papaya and a bunch of other tropical notes. Flavor is sticky with tropical fruity notes featuring papaya and grains of paradise, with a strong pine resin bitterness and some caramel.
