Tea, overripe orange, nose, caramel underneath. Cloudy amber, thick yellow head, nice lacing. Resinous, medium to full body, easy carbonation, alcohol well hidden. Pine and overripe orange. Fairly good balance. Pretty darn good. nuplastikk (6312) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 18, 2012
12oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan body with a frothy,glass lacing head. Decent IIPA, earns some points for being 8.99 a six pack certainly. Leaning towards the toasty side of the IIPA equation, with some dry, biter, grapefruit hops. Bullion hops? First I’d heard of them..now fascinated. Middle of the road in a lot of respects, but still well executed and pleasant. reebtogi (6310) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2012
355ml bottle pours golden in color with a finger of white head that left some spotted lacing on the glass. A pleasing hoppy aroma with some hints of cereal grains. Taste is pleasant hoppy bitterness balanced with a healthy dose of malty sweetness. Medium bodied with modest carbonation this is one solid DIPA which I thoroughly enjoyed while on vacation in Washington state. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Fruity nose, some toasted malts, light dank, fruit punch, pepper, citrus. Pours golden amber, great creamy head and sticky lace. The flavor is toasty with notes of caramel, tropical fruit, earthy hops, peppery hops, and light citrus. Nice dryness in the finish. Easy and smooth. Decent little IIPA. sonnycheeba (6126) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2014

In short: A well balanced citrusy Double IPA. Unspectacularly enjoyable beerganache (5953) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2015
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed relatively fresh, one month after purchase, bottle sent to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Cloudy golden-orange body topped by a medium white head with medium retention
In long: Nose of medium intensity is all about citrusy hops, been-there-done-that but never get tired of that type of hoppy aroma. Taste is sweet oranges, some honeyed fortune cookies, bitter white grapefruits, floral and almost soapy notes, residual sugars. Sweetness sensation is medium for the style. The bitterness is sharp but the bitterness level is also only medium for the style. Overall this is a nice big IPA, very easy to drink, not a hop-bomb, not malt heavy, just well balanced. Far from original, but fun to drink nonetheless. It felt good drink a nice IPA like this, I think tonight I’ll drink 6 bombers, because if one bomber of beer can make me good, 6 bombers of beers will make me feel great. It’s just common sense basic math.
Bottle. Nose caramel and earth mostly, touch spice, touch alcohol, otherwise C-hops and mild resin. Poured cloudy dark orange with a short tan head. Taste strongly bitter, attenuated and pretty dry, picking up more orange peel and a little dank wood character, faint dough, and the leafy hops also impart a bit of orange marmalade. Alcohol not as pronounced as I’d feared but it’s still hefty without burn. Toast, caramel, earth, light spice, lightly floral, strong and growing pine. More dough and a little crystal in the finish. Body very full, medium-crisp, avoids sugary meltdown. Clean but the hops are a little raw, and overall doesn’t jump of the page. [2015.11.06: 3.3] TimE (5891) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 12, 2013
Amber color, big caramel and citrusy nose. Thick caramel backbone. Lots of grapefruit. Malty, simple and enjoyable. snoworsummer (5746) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2014
From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a thick, bubbly beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes very smooth, nutty, orange, like cereal malt, with a nice pine bitterness. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells musky, grassy, flour, with light orange BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle: Nice bronze copper color with a retentive well respecting head. Big resinous citrus hops and a mild malty base. Nothing pops out and takes the stage though. Nice hoppy flavor, ample malts and some caramel. A little on the light side. Did they really just warn me when drinking? They obviously don’t know their customers, from top to bottom.
