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. nearbeer (5419) - 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 (5335) - 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. hayduke (5207) - 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. KansaiBeerLvrs (5153) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 2, 2015
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...

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. DialSquare (5030) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2012
12oz bottle from publix lake ella. Gold pour with big fluffy white head and tons of retention. Aroma is bread, spice and light citrus. Tastes are pine, tropical fruit bitter and spices (juniper?). Drinkable - ok. chinchill (5010) - 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.

Pours a nice deep amber color. Aromas of hops/hops/citrus. Strong hop flavors with malts and a peppery crisp dry finish. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2012
12oz. Bottle: Got in trade from smith4498; THANKS Jason! Aroma of hops, citrus, and hints of malt and caramel. Poured orange in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that quickly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of small and large-sized particles throughout. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, and caramel. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter, malt, hop, and caramel finish is dry.
