3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very fresh hop aroma. A bitterness that hits upfront. Hop flavors really stay around for a while. Slight caramel feel in the back that somewhat takes away from the drinkability. Overall good stuff.
bottle - Clear amber-orange pour, smells of hops with some citrus and pine character. Bitter flavor with mild citrus/pine notes. Caramel malt. Medium body. It's good though it doesn't really pop for me for some reason. SG111 (2026) - New York, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Tap at the source. Pours clear golden color, white head. Aroma is pine, raw hops (like you walked into a hop freezer), grapefruit rind, caramel. Flavor is caramel backbone, grapefruit rind, raw hops. It’s fine. justkoehn (171) - Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Thick lacing with ring of head. Clear golden appearance. Piney hop aroma. Easy to drink with long lasting bitter finish.

Super hazy amber and deep copper/bronzed body with a nice, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of rich caramel and toffee, nice amarillo and warrior hop notes of earth and floral elements and a grassy note as well, all with some noticeable alcohol around the edges. Full-bodied; Super rich and bitter flavour of the hops showing very deep earthy and metallic hop flavours with a lot of alcohol pungency at the tail end. Aftertaste shows the super pungent and alcohol-ridden bitterness from both hops and malt, then shows deep hops and caramel,but nothing sweet at all with this one - just a lot of alcohol and way more super bitterness and not in a good way. Overall, not such a great beer and I was hoping for much more, but this was a let down all around. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Mich igan on 24-July-2015 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 08-March-2016.

355ml bottle. Light amber pour, belgian-looking foamy head. Aroma is pure malt, caramel. Falvor is caramel, bitterness, herbs, citrus, and pine. East coast, meh. fakebeersnob (325) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Aroma is probably malt, though it reminds me of wood pulp. Hint of fruit sweetness to it. Color is a light amber with a meringue-like head that goes down to a decent lacing. Taste a bit of citrus, but also seems to be strawberry to it. Then comes a sweet malt taste, and a bit of grapefruit like citrus at the back. (note: the citrus is pretty muted - do not expect it to be like a Citra or grapefuit IPA). More malty than expected. There is a little bit of a resiny mouthfeel at the end.
It is a decent IPA. Something I would drink if it was available, but nothing I would seek out. unclemike (3163) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - OCT 20, 2014

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, orange, peach, some vanilla, creamsicle notes, touch of bread, biscuit, herbal. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, pineapple, hints of mango into a bit of grape, some biscuit, bread, touch of vanilla, honey, finishing spicy, very bitter, dry. Nicely, nicely done. czar (9430) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
