From bottle. Pours a clear golden color with an off white, frothy head. I don’t get much in the way of aroma, however I can pick up a slightly grassy/resin smell. Taste is very hop forward, I don’t get much of the malts but thats how I like them. Very smooth and easy to drink, finishes with a nice hop bitterness.
Smell is odd...not really of hops and very very light...almost a sour smell?? Taste is super bitter...bleh no no too much...had at polliwogs with my wonderful babies for Clemson/Carolina game 2017 Ratman197 (15440) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2017

Orange color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is quite malty slightly bitter. Some oranges and grapefruit. Earthy notes. Overall death by malt not hops but pretty good.

This beer is an assault on the taste buds. A golden cloudy color, it gives the non hop head, the idea that something’s wrong with it. That couldn’t be further from the truth. This is a absolutely stellar IPA with every hop that a hop head would desire. The fact that it is somewhat unfiltered is nothing short of brilliant. Thanks Olde Hickory for this collaborative effort.

Bottle from Bombers Beverage Company, Wilmington, North Carolina. Golden with a thin head. Strong tasting with some stewed tropical fruitiness, but without much character, although it gets better in its aftertaste. TThumper89 (43) - Otsego, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2017
Sampled at Olde Hickory Brewery (Amos Howard's Brew Pub), pours a clear orange with some slightly off white head. Nose has pine, grass, soap, some orange, lemon. Flavor has potpourri, lemon, grass, orange zest. Finishes bitter but dry. Could be balanced with a bit more malt, but yet, that's likely the point!

It’s a hop soup. Vertical flavors and orange with some notes of faint chocolate at the very end. Pretty heavy handed and good.
