Decent. Strong hoppy aroma with pine standing out front. The color was brown, not the dark red as advertised with a foamy head. Good palate with some weight and good carbonation. Flavors were a harsh bitterness up front that could have been better balanced. Some rye spiciness with milder malt flavors. Nothing over the top fantastic but a good beer. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Can:   Deep reddish caramel, thin to moderate foamy tannish head, nice lacing.   Husky aroma, malt forward, strong grainy notes.   Hop side, not so much.   Yeah, really husky on the nose.   Mealy and malty up front, also very husky.   This is a very much malt driven IIPA, but not a clean one.   Soft astringent grainy bitterness follows.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes way to husky and grainy for a Double IPA.   This was a let down... ugh, can’t finish the rest...   Thanks Bill!

At Patrick’s with James. Pours dark red bronze. Aroma is thin earthy hops, rye, malt, raw grain. Taste is thin, spicy hops, water, red malty. mmmbeer (1427) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2013
12 oz. can served in shaker- well, at least it shouldn’t be that skunky since light cannot penetrate metal- yet. Poured a mildly turbid darkened brown with tints of light maroon when held to a light source, hearty two finger foamy head formed and laced upon the vessel nicely. Aroma of a good size load of hops (grass and grapefruit), and a light note of caramel. Hits the mouth with a medium body with some weight, malt doesn’t have as much caramel as I anticipated, middle has a moderate hop wave but it does have depth- not a massive attack, but a solid press, finish is acidic but it fades away a little too quickly. Decent, but a bit one dimensional. brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Handsome red-briwn body and stubborn white head & lace. Impressive.

Piney hops, strong rye malt component, hints of caramel malt too. Pretty bitter; resinous hops linger alongside a touch of booze to wrap things up. Others might love this, but it's not for me.
Mild hazy deep amber. Thick khaki head with good lacing. Sweet caramel and bready malty aroma with earthy, floral, and dank hops. Medium to thick body. Yeast flavors. Much malt, caramel, and good dank and earthy hop flavor.

(12oz can, courtesy of Mora2000) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, lightly toasted grain, herbs, and subtle citrus. Flavor of caramel, grain, grass, light pine, and earthiness with a dry finish. Needs some hops. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Orange with a white head. The aroma is full of pine and toffee. The flavor is similar, with some toffee notes and a ton of sugary sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Definitely not as good as expected. I have another can in the fridge and look forward to re-trying it. jhamp9 (1931) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Slightly hazy red orange pour with a nice cream colored head. Nice lacing. Aroma is earthy, grapefruit, grass, and caramel in the background. Taste is pine initially but then it sort of disappears. It has some rye and bitterness in the finish, but I’m not getting much in between. Finishes dry on the palate. Easy to drink. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2013
