Draft that poured a medium orange with off white head. Mild carbonation and more if an oily lacing, the nose is big tropical hop with mild to medium malt base. The flavor was malt forward followed by a punch you in the face tropical hop feast. Not overly bitter but enough to know that it’s there. Very tasty and medium to full bodied.

"#2900 from the brewery i have drank more than any other (i think - Boston beer is up there too!). Lots of citrus and pine in the aroma, but with a stronger than usual sweet malt presence as well, even more so in the flavor. medium bodied, well balanced, easy drinking. bittersweet finish is nice."

hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Rated on 6-01-2012 at Brew Haven Ticket Release Party at Trion Tavern-New Haven, IN. This draft beer has a small beige head that mostly diminishes, copper body and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus, grapefruit and orange hops and malt. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus hops and malt. The mouthfeel is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a lingering hoppy aftertaste and also a weird flavor on the back of the tongue that I don’t know what it is other than weird.

alexsdad06 (10805) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2014
22 oz bottle sampled in early 2012 from notes. Pours a clear golden amber color with a small white head. The aroma has caramel malts, fruity citrusy hops, toasted malt, grass, and a splash of caramel. The flavor has fruity citrus hops, toasted malts, caramel malts, floral notes, and grapefruit. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel. Decent IPA that has avoided some of the storage problems of other Mikkeller IPAs.
