After 30+ IPA’s . . . no contest, the best I have had thus far. Can not believe its in a can! The visual in the glass is a orange sunrise and slightly cloudy. Beautimous! Hoppy? YES. Bitter? Kind of. But an extremely smooth mellow taste. Goes down too easy! Nose? Insane apricots and oranges and mild tangerine. Palate is amazingly smooth. Nice ABV that is VERY well hidden but there nonetheless. I would give it a perfect score but I’m pnly 45 and there so many IPA’s! Paid 12 for a 4pk of tall boys. Will be back for more tomorow!

Tulip @ Mellow Mushroom.
Pour: Hazy amber/orange pour. Thick bead of foam. Fantastic lacing.
Aroma: Hop heaven. Amazing pine/citrus notes. I never tire of this olfactory introduction to a new IPA.
Taste: My new favorite IPA. Bold malt coupled with obnoxious hop flavors (Simcoe/C-hops?). The dank is held at bay by the fresh pine and grapefruit tones. Smooth, oily body.
Overall: A cocky West Coast-style IPA. A big complex IPA that borders on Imperial. Fantastic. Highly recommended.

Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2012, Olympia, London. A golden/amber coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Hoppy, pine, citrus fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus fruit, malty, some grapefruit. Agree that this is almost a DIPA. Great complex IPA. VsXsV (4442) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2012
Can from Pizza Port Bottle Shop, Carlsbad. Clear reddish amber liquid with medium to big, firm off-white head with some lacing. Aroma is dank and grassy with notes of citrus, grapefruit, pine, herbs, floral hops, a little bit of caramel, pineapple, mango and sweet cereal. Niiice! Taste is light sweet and medium to high bitter with notes of citrus, pine, flowers, grass and some sweet caramel malt. Quite balanced. Gives me a bit of a Pliny the Elder vibe. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Really nice stuff, though a bit dank and cat pissy. Got my hop fix anyway. Keg_Juggler (193) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Nice double IPA from OB. deep amber hue with creamy head. Nose of citrus and pine hops taste is smooth and bitter hops.

Aroma is pine, citrus and biscuit malts. The flavor is grapefruit, malts and a very dry finish. RobertDale (6483) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Sample at the brewery in Lyons. Comes clear copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of florals, pine, citrus, and malt. Taste is piney hops, floral hops, citrus, and some malt. Fairly smooth. Very nice. QuezXLV (423) - Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2012
The color is amber and there is nice foamy SUDS. Powerful fruity aroma and very pleasant. Very smooth on the palate. Taste is quite bitter with a drawn-out aftertaste. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2012
16oz can, shared by Jay. Canned 7/3/12. Nice off-white head. Good lace. Darker clear amber / orange color. Super smooth texture, lighter crisp carbonation, dry finish. Really nice hop profile - resiny, grapefruit, pine, pineapple, with light caramel malts. Spicy and resiny hop aftertaste. Definitely fresh tasting. Great bitter taste, but it doesn’t overwhelm the excellent hop flavor. I really like this. Awesome canned choice for a big IPA. If they distributed this where I live, I’d be drinking a lot less Sixpoint Resin douglas88 (9195) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Can thanks to big D. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A sweet very fruity nose, kind of odd, very grassy with weed notes. The flavor is very interesting as well: dank, some resin, grassy, oranges, very clean and smooth. A great brew, very unusual. Tasty!
