12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berry, grapefruit, lime, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berry, grapefruit, lime, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus rind, peppery, herbal, grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berry, grapefruit, citrus rind, pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6.5%. Overall this is an awesome IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink; even with the fairly aggressively bitter/drying finish. A big dank bomb of an IPA. Lots of pine and earthy spice, balanced with juicy tropical/stone fruit character; solid malt backbone, with no residual sweetness. A really enjoyable offering. Love the hop profile: Columbus, Chinook, Mosaic, and Ekuanot. mansquito (7127) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2017
From a Long Trail sampler pack: pours a sort of orange color with a white head. Aroma is some citrus, piny notes, and a bit of malts. Taste is like a standard IPA. Somewhat bitter. It is what it is. gripweed57 (2969) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Slightly hazed amber orange color. Small pillowy beige head with nice lacing. Subtle toasted malt nose with hints on mint and spruce. Flavor has more toasted malt, caramel and a mix mash of hop flavors. Hints of pine, stale citrus fruit, vanilla and lemon peel. Sticky mouthfeel. Chewy sweet malt finish. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2017
12 oz bottle from PA.
Lightly hazy golden amber colored body with a decent head.
Good hop-forward aroma promises tropical fruit flavors.
The flavor is fruity but more malty and herbal than the aroma suggests. It's also better (approaching 9) than the aroma.
Fine feel with medium body and carbonation. hbiermann (24) - - SEP 28, 2017
Super good!!! Very fruity. Lovely lacing. Slightly hazy in color. Such good flavor!

Can pour. Pours a cloudy brownish amber. Medium light bodied. More malt than hops, but pretty smooth. Light flavor. CTlaura (4) - - AUG 29, 2017 does not count
Nice floral aroma. Sweeter than most IPA beers with a bitter aftertaste ant a pleasantly sweet finish.

Can at Phils game. Many hops, resin, earth and more tree hop without being too bitter. Refreshing beverage. Not harsh though it borders on the edge. raymow (1865) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2017
