For having 144 IBUs this actually wasn’t as much of a hop bomb as I was expecting; I guess the wine barrel aging takes away some of the bitterness? The flavors and aromas are nice and citrusy but a little one dimensional. Not much malt presence to balance the hop bitterness. Overall though this was pretty good, however.
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is strong of the floral and pine hops. flavor is lighter with some alcohol warming on the finish. DavidWoodruff (631) - Windsor, California, USA - APR 26, 2017
Orange/gold with a fine beaded white head. Aroma is worty and ever so slightly catty. Flavor is citrus - sweet orange peel. Boozy. Full-bodied. Adequately bitter finish. Drinkable even if a bit chaotic in its presentation. DocJitsu (2035) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours a very murky dark orange-golden with a well -retaining off white head. Malty nose with some hints of hops, but no more. The hop profile expresses a little more in the flavor. Drinks more like a hoppy barleywine. Caramel comes through late in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Bottle @ MGM Studios Disney. Poured a hazy golden color with a small sized off white head. Citrus, some floralness, and some stale pine. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2016 Bottle... Hazy dirty-orange pour. The aroma is a mélange of marmalade, candied stone fruits and pine resin. Full-bodied and nearly chewy with adequate carbonation. There are also candied fruits and marmalade in the flavor; balanced by resiny hop bitterness. Trends toward the bitter side of balance in the lengthy finish.

Bottled (backlog). Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some nectar and mild tropical fruity sweetness as well. Flavour is quite similar, but also has a nice sweetish malty body to it and a bit of alcohol giving it a kick too. Actually very smooth, yet quite "extreme" in a quite mellow way.

Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is resin, floral, citrus and light caramel notes. Taste is bitter throughout with a dry finish. Medium bodied with alcohol well hidden, refreshing. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 2, 2016
On tap @ Napa Smith. Amber in color with a thick white head. There’s a bunch of orange juice, some tangerine, and a hint of tropical fruit. Bitter pine and grass. A bunch of peach, too. Sort of perfumey. Definitely bitter in the tongue, but also fairly malt forward and sweet. A little bit of that aspirin bitterness. Eh, alright. BuckeyeBoy (8476) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 1, 2016
22oz bottle from Napa smith brewing. pours out a copper amber topped with a tan head. nose is big sweet malts toffee and some fruit. Taste is more of the toffee caramel and a nice hop melon. boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bomber from trio. Pours hazy Amber with a medium sized head. The aroma has a lot of citrus, juices, very little presence from the malt. The taste has a big caramel sweetness, a bit of grapefruit, kind of malt forward.
