9.13.13 batch. Sugary pine scent. Tastes start with sweety caramel, crisp apple and pine. Then the bitterness hit s, citrus and floral hops. Excellent balance between sweet and bitter. puboflyons (3433) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Enjoy By 09.13.13. The pour is a decent looking golden amber with a long-lasting, silky white head. The aroma is not in your face but the nose has some pleasant spruce and floral hops as well as a a more muted biscuit malt note. The body is medium and smooth. The taste has a slightly sweet start but then the hops roar in and assume the profile. The bitterness is low to moderate lingering slightly toward the finish. I liked it.

On tap, enjoy by 9-19-13. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of tons of pine, grapefruit, grassy hops, garlicky hops, citrus. Very powerful hops! Flavor of piney hops, crackery malt, grapefruit, citrus. Palate is a bit heavy, syrupy. Definitely a hop monster, but it’s a big one!

Memphis Taproom, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is an explosion of grapefruit and citrus flavour. The person who said that this is reminiscent of Heady Topper is pretty spot on. (Of course, this is more alcoholic than the famed Heady Topper though. The taste is just the right amount of bitterness, a touch of sugar, but mostly extremely flavorful hops. When a beer lives up to the hype, it is always a treat. Inabil1ty (25) - - SEP 1, 2013
Reminiscent of Heady Topper. Honey, flowers, hops. Really pleasant aroma. And that is about how all I have to say about it.

Son surprised me with. Great, fresh beer. Sharp grass nose smooth but bright, a dry finish, fairly complex, I like a lot. niday2288 (115) - - AUG 31, 2013

Pour is clear copper with a thick ivory head. Nose is hoppy, duh. Notes of pine and flower though there is a biscuity malt tone. Taste is interesting. Has earthy hop notes with no real citrus flavor. There is the biscuit presence with a decent balance. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall it's ok. I enjoyed RuinTen and their regular ipa much more.

Pours from tap at fabulous Stone brewing a light amber-orange with small head and minimal lacing.
A strong hop bomb hits the nose and tongue, shattering the competing sweet caramel and citrus in the background. The carbonation and body are overwhelmed by the perfection of hops and hop taste.
WHAM! WOW! This is hops utopia, and a real beer lover’s delight.
The brewery is outstanding and serves nothing but the best beers in the world. Check them out already!! AirForceHops (7238) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 31, 2013
22 oz. bottle. 9-13-13. Clear amber/ yellow color with small head. Nose is a big stone hop profile; pine, citrus and passion fruit. Flavor is all West Coast IPA. Big citrus notes with a huge pine hop notes. It tastes close to a whole hop pellets. A good amount of caramel for balance yet the pine, pine needle, resinous flavors dominate throughout the sip. Light floral hops as a undertone. Medium body with a dry texture. Long lingering bitterness. If you like big Pine hops you should really be pleased with this brew. I liked it and shared this with a friend.
