Pours clear orange lots of foamy head and tons of lacing. Nose is fruity grapefruit and pine. Flavours of grapefruit, five alive, pine, mango. Taste medium bitter light sweet. Full sticky body with lively carbonation and lasting bitterness. Very drinkable. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Pours a very cloudy dark golden orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Decent retention, lingering for most of the pour. Streaks of soapy lacing are left clinging to the glass.
slightly boozy aroma with sweet tropical/citrus hop notes countered by caramel and pale male backbone. Hints of pineapple, tart grapefruit and orange peel along with grassy pine resins and light crackery malt notes.
Full bodied with a blast of dry bitterness that lingers over tropical sweetness and caramel malt backbone into slightly boozy finish. Sticky hop presence up front with grassy resins and pine sap countered mid palate by tropical/citrus sweetness and stronger malt presence than expected. Some pineapple, ruby red grapefruit and orange peel followed by caramel sweetness, bread and crackery malts. The malt presence is stronger than I prefer but this is a decent, well balanced beer that’s easy to drink. Was just expecting a but more from this collaboration. Johnsense (1671) - - NOV 7, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2016 Hazy golden pour. Tropical fruit aroma and taste, grapefruit, fairly bitter, resin, slightly dank. Medium body. Easy to drink a few of these in a sitting! Mr_Abner (385) - Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very hazy orange color with a modest white head that leaves behind sticky lacing as it recedes. Smells delicious. Aromas of citrus and ripe tropical fruit. A heavy bitterness... Really think there must have been more fruit up front while this bottle was fresher, especially given the aroma. As it is, the taste comes across as unbalanced. Medium+ bodied with a creamy/oily texture. Lower than average carbonation. Bitter finish. Homer321 (5072) - Melboring, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle thanks to clown! Poured into glass. Nose is super hoppy, lots of citrus with some pine. Lightly hazy dark yellow. Bottle conditioned. Small white head that laces well. Taste is like an assault on my tongue with hop resins and oils without being to aggressively bitter. Like chewing on a hop cone. Very green and leafy. Good but I would like more citrus and pine flavor, instead of obnoxious assault of oils and resin.

bottled - major hops in the aroma and flavor. Good floral notes. Super hoppy. Cloudy golden color. Did I mention the hops? Dare I say, a little too hoppy? pineypower (3327) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours out a hazy copper/orange color with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is of juicy citrus, tangerine, some mild dank hops, some mild tropical fruit and light grainy malt. Taste is complex, really nice juicy citrus fruits, tropical fruit, dank hops, light herbal notes, a really solid punch of bitter juicy hops. Some mild malt notes for a slight balance but the hops are the star in this show. Abv is very well hidden. Impressive pfamiano (1) - - OCT 11, 2015 does not count
Two great Vermont Brewers one great Double IPA. Juicy, yet dank, with a sturdy malt backbone that tries its damnedest to balance the hop wollop this thing packs. puboflyons (3433) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 9, 2015
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 09/15. Orange-amber pour with a moderate fading head. Hop haze. Lacing. Exploding aroma of grapefruit and tropical fruit with a touch of toasted biscuit. Medium body Lots of grapefruit flavors with a boisterous bitter ending.. It is like so many of those hopped up beers from Vermont and if you love those - you will love this one.
