Pours orange amber with an off white head. Piny hoppy aroma with some lighter citric notes. The flavor has resinous hoppy notes on top of sweet malts.
Massive citrus pine aroma in an amber pour. Hop forward balance with a big caramel fruit malt body and finish. Way easy drinking (dangerously so) but more like a TIPA overall. Would I have another? Yes, indeed I would! oobawa (1425) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 5, 2017
Caramel apple-sweet DIPA, with a boozy orange marmalade backbone and a resinous pinecone finish. Drinkable, but the heavy, heavy malts almost push it into barleywine territory, eventually overcoming the hop goodness and growing cloy as the pint warms. Clingy IBUs help the fade, but overall much too sweet for another glass. Alcohol warmth grows as well. Pretty, though, and the dank-citrus nose is inviting.

Can from Das Stahl Bierhaus. It poured a dark gold with a white head. The aroma is resinous pine and citrus. It has a bitter taste. Goodgrief (2029) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUN 29, 2017
On tap at Taverna. Ciderlike color, thin head, good lacing. Boozy tangerine aroma. Flavor profile was similar. Ripe orange, citrusy zest. Sweet but just enough bite to make it not cloying. Enjoyable. natejgood (512) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUN 11, 2017
Deep amber with tiny bubbles rising diligently to the top to support the bottom of a relatively medium sized but sturdy looking head. Small craters form in the top of the head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine and resin. Aroma is actually pretty delicious. Flavor has a lot of malt and light clover honey. The hop flavor is there but is a little muddled. This beer is a bit syrupy in the mouth, which isn’t uncommon with a double IPA but the flavor doesn’t help to cut this one. The aroma is by far the best part of this beer. The rest isn’t bad but is a little disappointing just because the initial whiff of the beer is so good.

12oz can. Pours hazy dark orange, medium white head. Piney ripe grapefruit nose. Full bodied, with flavors of candied orange peel, caramel, molasses, generous dose of bittering hops. Alcohol not hot but evident. Somewhat thick and sweet in the mid-palate then dries off a little for the lingering bitter, orange finish. Ronritter (741) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2017
12oz can cloudy burnt orange pour with off white head aroma is strong hay and grass medium sour with light bitter finish Andrew196 (1903) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2017
Pours the color of pumpkin pie, dark and murky, suspended particulate. Hearty ivory colored head, cascading lace. Aroma is heavy in citrus, grapefruit, strawberry, reeds on a warm day. Full and somewhat creamy feel. More citrus, orange peel, traces of caramel on the back end. Mild burn going down. Well balanced, well made. czar (9094) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2017 pours unclear medium dark golden orange with a nice reviving off-white cap offering some retention and lacing. very doughy and meaty mangoes, kind of buttery melons, candied orange fruitiness as well, underlying caramel perhaps, sweet pine gum, maple water, lots of peppery and piney alcohol, fruity yeast. moderate carbonation, medium body - very oily; sweet, assertive and burning hot spicy-resinous finish. hearty and dank but unfortunaley stingingly very piney and boozy. o-k. ordybill (1759) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a clear orange color with a large off-white head. The aroma is pine and oranges. The taste is spiced oranges with some pine hops. A very nice beer.
