On tap at Strand Brewery. Tasted nice and fresh. Aroma of pine. Well balanced pine and caramel malt flavor. undsioux7 (872) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2015
Pours a deep copper with medium off white head. Grapefruit and pine dominate with a caramel malt backbone balance. Decent. EdInSaltLake (748) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Herbal hops... Stale-ish or something? And orange-y citrus character. A little malt flavor, and tangerine in the finish. Bitter finish/aftertaste. Anova167 (386) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - APR 22, 2012
Amber pour. Aroma is earthy malts and floral hops. Flavor is fairly heavy with caramel malts. It needs to be brightened up with less malt or punchier hops. Not great, especially considering their tasty double IPA. chadski (166) - California, USA - MAY 22, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2016 Supporting the local community. Quite dark amber color with heavy pine scents which move right into the flavor. Not much variation beyond that. Too heavy.

Absolutely love the color. Otherwise, pretty standard ipa. Decent hop presence, but nothing to write home about. I wish it was a little deeper and more complex. Bigbluedan (8) - SINGAPORE - AUG 8, 2015 does not count
Maybe it's me but Low aroma and doesn't stay on the palate, but some liqourice and some citrus. Very nice

Have had a couple of bomber bottles of this now.
This beer pours a crystal clear considering that it’s unfiltered. The color is a light amber to orange hued beverage. There is a small white head that dissipates in a minute or two to a light skim. There is some lacing down the sides.
The aroma is of strong tropical fruit, most prominent to me is pineapple. I do NOT pick up any resin or spruce/pine notes. There is some light malt aroma but hops dominate.
Mouth feel is a medium to medium heavy with appropriate carbonation for the style.
Flavor is dominated by tropical fruit hops right up front that carry on through to me. Very little malt flavor. There is a mild lingering bitterness that’s a little "piney" but nothing over the top.
Overall the beer is a nice drinkable American IPA but nothing that really sets it apart from other typical IPAs.
