Bottle from Die Bierothek, Frankfurt. Golden body with slight head. Nose of hops, citrus. Taste hoppy with malts and caramel. Citrus in the warming finish. hayduke (5732) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 1, 2015
Share with Stykzone on Facebook Chat. Orange cloudy pour with a white head. Light lacing. Nose of pine and tropical fruit. Medium in body. Flavor is big on tropical fruit and the pine is quite present. The finish is citrus, resinous, and the with pine bitterness. Nice drinking. nearbeer (5671) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Pint on tap. Opaque (cloudiest IPA I’ve ever seen, and not the bottom of the keg, but I still think its a good sign) green-orange-toast color with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is very mild citrus and evergreen. Taste is a bit bolder with the evergreen, caramel and citrus. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and is dry with lots of hop, but the taste is just so-so. Aurelius (5662) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Not the worst label I’ve ever seen, but it puts me in a mind of Christmas with the red and green candy stripe - and nothing says Christmas like a toad. The beer itself is cloudy and light brown. The aroma is a broadside assault of hops at first - as things settle down and warm there is lots of fresh pineapple, and the hops fade back into a supporting kat whizz role. Sweet (not too) and candied at times with lots of pineapple. The hops are really in a flavor and aroma role, and the brew is really not very bitter at all, until the end when it gets strongly bitter and perhaps a bit overbrewed tasting. Medium body, loses carbonation some. ABC Liquors, Betton. burg326 (5630) - Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Poured an amber color with aromas of floral hops, light bread, some pine and light caramel. Flavors follow suit nothing out of this world but basic and decent.

From Red Brick Brewing. 6.2% brewed in Oct. 2014 so 7 months old. A mild pine aroma with a thick sweet caramel malt backbone. Fairly full bodied but a bit syrupy sweet. I get the feeling this IPA is passed its best with most of the hop character having dropped out... jbruner (5476) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2017 Pours a slightly hazy golden orange on tap with minimal ring of off-white head. Aroma is a nice citrus hop note up front with a good pale caramalt background. Taste is more towards the sweetness, but still nice resinous hops. Moderate carbonation, bittersweet finish. Decent IPA.
The recipe has been updated as of October, 2017, and it is hand over fist a better beer. Juicier, hoppier, lighter malt body, less bitterness. Updated for the new palate! jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 17, 2014
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of lightly floral and light pine hops, pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not really a standout IPA. chinchill (5397) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2014
On tap at the brewery. A clear amber ale with a durable bone-colored head. Excellent lacing.
Bitterness kicks up in the finish and lingers on in the grapefruit-rind flavored aftertaste. Some malt flavor with little [it seems] balancing sweetness.

Draft. Nose is an inviting tropical citrus experience with a light crackery and bready malt presence. Pour is fairly clear And light red in color. Small white head with excellent lacing. Taste. Oh. Taste. This is where the beer heads south. An overly sweet sticky mess that has an apple like character to it, then a slightly astringent drying finish. Seems like it is on the verge of a catastrophic problem and just barely holding itself together. Not that great. Or good. Or decent.
