Bottle tasting at work. Damn, I’m not even a hophead and this was just wonderful. Beautiful citrus/grapefruit hopped profile play aound the nose as a slightly sweet lactose finishes the taste, obscuring what little bitterness is obtained from the hop additions. Appearance was a bit underwhelming, with a cloudy orange hew with medium white head... but a sub-par appearance does not, a bad beer, make! As a nice little aside, licking my lips after drinking this wonderful brew left a sweet, almost candied, lactose risidual that made me smile. One of the better DIPAs I’ve had in quite a while!
Grapefruit, orange, honey, grass nose. Opaque amber, medium head, good lace. Apricot, grapefruit, honey. Full body, soft carbonation, warm. Big sweet malt bill, big fruity hops. East coast DIPA, very good. commonmac (1370) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2017
22oz bomber purchased at the brewery in Indiana and shared for Halloween with blonderedhead. Beautiful appearance. Deep golden orange with an assertive white head. Aroma is a pleasant sweet fruit and honey with caramel undertones. Taste is rich and predominantly sweet at the onset with a finish that finally lets the hops breathe. Bitterness definitely not overpowering but lingers at the end. Some tropical fruit. Alcohol presence is felt throughout. Hard to find fault. Great beer for the end of the bovine world.

Very good. Near clear golden pour with white head. Aroma is overripe sweet fruit. Taste is grapefruit, light caramel and bitter hops. Good stuff. beeratarian (242) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2017
Pouts slightly hazy gold with thick tight head. Aroma is fruity with some dank hops and caramel malt. Flavor is pineapple some pine and creamy malt. Lots of booze and smoothness that makes it not a top shelf hop beast...but still pretty good. DrunkSanta410 (989) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 19, 2017
Orange pour with white head. Citrus, biscuity malts, honey and moderately bitter. Smooth for high ABV.

Bottle was given to me from my brother in law. Pours a clear golden, copper, white head dies leaving sheets of lace. Nose is sweet floral citrus hops, good caramel background. Tastes sweet, grapefruit hop bitterness. Quite sweet. I like it. screigh (773) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Pours a slight hazy with about quarter inch white creamy head. Head disappears but leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet but crisp aroma. Sweet up front and a lingering pithy bitterness phranq (250) - - AUG 1, 2017
Awesome! Tropical fruit and pineapple in the nose and tatse. Gives way to a thick bittersweet finish. MaBeer1972 (2208) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 25, 2017
Bomber from the brewpub shop. Poured into a snifter. A cloudy deep orange color with a frothy white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Lots of juicy citrus and pine. Creamy mouthfeel. Very well balanced and smooth. Nice finish. I suppose I need to go back to Indiana again.
