COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

Great pine aroma with a hint of citrus. Taste was well balanced with some sweet malts and hop bitterness. Well made IPA.

Pours a hazy golden amber color with a small head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma consists of pine, citrus, carmel, and some floral notes. You taste the pine right away, then get some bitter citrus flavor. Somewhat resiny from the hops, but a nice malt backbone as well to balance it out. A nice sticky feel to it with a bitter finish. A solid ipa that I would get again.

Pours a very clear dark gold color. Tasty grassy herbal flavor. Some basil as well. Clean malt and pine aroma and overall, very tasty! Thanks to BarZigKin for sharing!

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 Super pine aroma that dominates everything else. Flavor is also overpowering pine. Very similar to Ranger, but cattier. Ewww.

Bottled 10 days ago. ! Clear gold pour with a nice sized white head. Aroma of onions, citrus zest, and a bit of tropical fruit. Similar flavor, just a touch of the malt backbone. Finishes well carbonated, little bitterness for the style. This comes close to being great, but I would have liked a bit more fruit and citrus with less onion. I would assume this one will be a stinker in a few weeks when even that fades. Still though, not bad.

Pours mid amber with really nice resin notes. This then drives into a fruit driven palate that show bitterness but plays well with the grains on the finish.

Pours clear gold with thick soapy white head and nice lacing. Strong aroma chacterized mostly by pine hops with some floral and citrus in the mix. Taste is very bitter with some malts for good balance. Full of flavor and drinkable.

Had some really nice strong citrus/pine scents. Taste is upfront with a citrus taste that finishes into a nice dry bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is very hoppy with strong pine and grapefruit up the nose. Pours orange with a medium head. Tastes yummy with sweet pine, slight citrus and a great sticky malt to focus the taste. Great Stuff!
