krumbum (1077) - truckee, California, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Big dank citrus aroma. Mostly clear copper light white head. Nice dank citrus peel juicy bitter. It washes down the back of your mouth in a nice citrus funk.

mmmbeer (1399) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2016
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a thin transparent yellow-copper color with light carbonation. Aroma of pine, resin, grapefruit, and love. Hits the mouth with a wide body, mouth feel is a little heavy, hard resin in the middle, finish is only slightly acidic from the hop overload. Itll work.

tekstr1der (445) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Near-clear light golden pour with almost no head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Flavor follow the nose and is great up to the rather biting dry finish. Not digging the lingering bitter rind of aftertaste, and there are smoother juicier dipas that finish much cleaner.

CObiased (401) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2016
12oz bottle - the pour is a clear apple juice like appearance with a very thin off white head that disappears. Slightly low carbonation. Fruit filled aroma - pineapple, mango, tangerine and peach....a little whiff of citrus zest and caramel too. A mouthful reveals some bitter fruit flavors layered in with some pine resin and minor malt backbone. A little boozy throughout.

Idiosynkrasie (6864) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2016
355ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy and tropical fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of orange, lemon, grapefruit, hints of mango and passion fruit, some pineapple, a touch of liquorice and burnt rubber. Taste is moderately sweet caramel malty and slightly bitter, fruity hoppy, notes of pineapple and mandarine. Slightly artificial, jelly bear fruitiness, surprisingly light, completely hidden alcohol. Joins the same clean, if not aseptic, easy going kindergarten league as e.g. Ballast Points Sculpin. Alluring and boring at once.

thedm (5942) - Fredonia, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2016
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The sharp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of biting hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.A nice strong hoppy beer for us hop heads! It really wakes up your palette.

mkel07 (5424) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel 061016. This is an easy drinking beer for an Imperial IPA and it hides the alcohol well. Not a big hop bomb like I was expecting but rather a more subtle low key beer.
