On tap at Toronado SF. Golden with a small head. Really hoppy and fresh with tropical fruit, grapefruit and some light notes of caramel. The finish was nicely bitter and dry. A tasty one. kbudd19 (1022) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
Draft from a fresh growler fill pretty stoked to have stumbled onto this today. Cloudy yellow colour with light white head. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruits, citrus, pine, and peaches. Taste is light bitterness, followed by sticky tropical fruit, pine, with a bitter fruity finish, full bodied, lots of carbonation. Outstanding IIPA, great balance and drinakbility. paintedmaple (671) - People’s Republic of Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Super indeed...fantastic aroma leads to a drink of earthy resinous pine forest. Also, a sticky candy like sweetness perfectly balances the hoppy bitterness. Finishes clean and leaves a lacing covering the glass top to bottom. Awesome. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Draft at fate, decent dipa, very strong malt flavors, sting hop flavors light on aroma but who knows how old the keg is, not bad HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2015
