Six pack from Proof bottleshop. Big crisp lively ipa. Drinkable and not too big. A dry sweet. Even bitter with fairly quick dry finish. Pine, floral, grapefruit, herbal. Wouldn’t mind this now and again. jsquire (4537) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Brash golden color out of the bottle with a sticky white head. Sharp hop nose that remind me of peach jolly rancher candy. Syrupy mouthfeel with lots of candied grapefruit, peach pie, and some tropical fruit. There is some light toast, but it is all under the peach marmalade/hop candy flavors. Long dry hop finish with a strong alcohol kick. Not as balanced as most but still tasty if you like hops. Skykwby (59) - Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle at home, pours dark golden, foamy head stays. Aroma fruity, pine peach notes, citrus. First sip refreshing, not very complex, but good. Hoppy aftertaste doesn't linger. Each sip is awakening the senses.

Aroma is moderately earthy, with companion citrus . Appears crystal clear light brown gold, with a white ring. Taste is bitter citrus with some spruce. Alcohol is well hidden goes down easy. DMLINAZ (335) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Strong, piney hops define this flavorful, reasonably bitter IPA. Somewhat sticky, resinous mouthfeel, long dry finish. Pine aroma. Enjoyable.

Light golden color with a delicious dry after taste. Nearly a perfect blend of hops and bitter happiness. hopmelt (197) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours absolutely clear, light golden, half finger thick creamy head. Aroma dank pine, tropical, hops, slight fruitiness, slightly bready. Taste smooth, slight bitter, pine, tropical, earthy hops, perfect malt presence to balance it out. Mouthfeel and carbonation medium, dry finish, no alcohol detected. Overall excellent beer, completely balanced in all aspects, not the best out there, but very tasty and drinkable Imperial ipa. Frank (4220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2014
This stuff is OK. It kind of splits the difference between IIPA and barleywine, which is to say it’s a IIPA w/o truly brilliant hop character that’s a little bit too sweet. It pours a nice, clear orange color w/ a long-lasting but thin head of medium bubbles. The nose is just generally hoppy and I am not really picking out many flavors in particular, perhaps a bit of tropical fruit and pine. Flavor is mostly dominated by an earthy hop chararcter and, as I mentioned, it’s a touch on the sweet and sticky side but a nice cushion of carbonation does help to cut this somewhat. This doesn’t really taste bad at all but this is getting to be a style that drives me nuts. This beer is not particular hoppier than any given IPA or APA and it doesn’t have any more flavor either. Why not just brew a regular IPA w/ the same amount of aroma hops? CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Quick dissipating, white frothy head atop a clear light amber body. Nose purely of pine cones, some spruce tip through the finish. Very sweet, over the top PNW hops. Nice bitterness and piney finish. SSSteve (4006) - - MAR 16, 2014
bottle. clear orange with stable white head. flavors of citrus and pine. superb palate with a clean bitter finish. hints of spice like licorice or anise. no tannic notes or astringency. smooth and palatable especially for 8.5%. piney aroma.
