The name speaks for itself, the taste is dominated by resiny, piney hops, with the malt and just a touch of alcohol underneath. Relatively well balanced. A good DIPA, but not the best. And I’m not sure I like the energy drink cans it comes in. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Draft at ChurchKey. Poured a clear dark amber color, medium sized white head. Aroma was... resin. Yep. But in all seriousness, it was heavy on the pine sap, needle notes. Flavor was medium malts, heavy on the hops - woah so many hops. dmac (6584) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2012
12 oz tall boy slim can from Spirits Rt 37. Poured a surprisingly super deep red amber body under an average sized tight foamy light beige head. Aroma was a big burst of grapefruit along with grains and toast followed by a touch of orange marmalade. The palate was fuller and thick with a syrupy feel and strong carbonation. Flavor was far more grainy than I like in my DIPAs with bitterness from lemon and grapefruit rind and a faint hint of vanilla. Meh it’s okay but nothing to write home about.

Can shared by a friend. Clear amber/copper pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of amber malt, a bit of sweetness and some grassy hops. Flavor starts with earthy hops, then moves to amber malt before a grassy hop finish.

Can. Pours deep amber with an off white head. Resinous pine, floral hops, and a light sweetness. The flavor has piney hops and sweet toffee malts, with some light floral hoppy notes as well. A well balanced resinous hop blast. evanlarkin (315) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Shared with travlr at ChurchKey. The beer itself is a dark clear amber, with a fluffy head. It looks beautiful. Smell is piny and resinous. Somehow I get the idea that it’s exactly what they’re going for? Awesome. Taste is similar, with some dryish malt character balanced by some zesty hops.

Can... Poured deep red with a thick, frothy, beige head. Big hop nose with earthy pepper-like qualities and citrus. Flavor wise was so much sweeter and malt forward. Must have had some killer dry-hopping. Like a west coast IPA on the nose and an East Coast IPA on the palate. Travlr (26430) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Draft courtesy of evanlarkin, thanks! Nice looking variegated amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of pine resin. Taste is similar, but well balanced. Nice. Jesterdeal (1986) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Aroma of pine sap, slight hints of caramel malt. Pours deep orange with a medium foamy head. Taste is bitter pines and subtle malts. Very hoppy and great.
