This is a supremely well done Ipa. Have always loved what Yazoo has done, but they really have outdone themselves with this masterpiece. Hopped balanced reminiscent of Alpine’s Pure Hoppiness. Nuff said. nearbeer (5663) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 24, 2011
12 oz. Deep copper with a lasting head of meringue. Orange toffee aroma also has notes of ozone, grapefruit, tea leaf, and pepper. Taste is earthy tea leaf, orange caramel, wood, peppery spice, grapefruit, pineapple, and hints of mint and celery. Medium body is smoothly carbonated and dry.

For a while, I had pretty much given up on the Hop Project series, but these last 3 or 4 that I’ve had have been really tasty. This one is very spicy, very west-coast hoppy. I could actually drink a sixer of this and be happy. wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Tasted on 12/22/11 on draft at the Yazoo Brewpub. Pours bright, lightly burnt, orange, with a thick, rocky off-white head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is candied and bitter orange peel, like orange marmalade with a hint of bread and caramel, and some pine resin. The flavor is sweet and bitter orange marmalade up front, moving to the light caramel and bread, and finishing with intense resin bitterness. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation, and a long orange marmalade and bitter resin hops finish. illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Bottle from Kroger. I have gone through about 4 of these. Pours a deep copper amber with an ivory head. Fruity ester and floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation. The malt backbone is just like previous versions - caramel, toasty, with some german esque qualities. Spicy and grapfruity bitterness that carries through to the finish. Somewhat Sierra Nevadaish, but still has some of that green flavor that I don’t care for - but it seems to be getting less pronounced in recent versions. But I am just being picky -it’s still a good IPA. Otherwise I wouldn’t continue to buy it.

Draft served in a pint glass at the Flying Saucer in Memphis. Pours a clear amber with a tiny eggshell white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, caramel malts, tobacco and tea leaves, and a woodsy earthiness. Flavor of caramel malts, grapefruit, tea, orange peel, pineapple, and pine resin. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, citrusy mouthfeel. Another solid Hop Project. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2012
This is bitter orange juice, creative and tasty but that finish is way too bitter. Solid 3.5 here bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 5, 2012
(12oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a medium cream head. Aroma of herbs, orange, and grass. Flavor of herbs, grass, nuts, grapefruit, and pine with a dry, bitter finish. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Deep amber pour. Light resiny hops and light bready malt aroma. Flavor mirrors aroama with a hard bitter finish and sweetness on the end. Medium body with good carbonation. edgallow (4629) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2013
12 oz bottle pours clear amber with a white head. Aroma of malts, citrus, and herbs. Taste is herbs, malts and nice citrus.
