pour is a cloudy copper orange with large bubbles in a light tan head. Nose is biscuit malt, rye and caramel with piney bitter hops behind. Taste follows suit but a more expressive hop sensation adds to the finish and short lingering bitterness along with a smooth body and soft carbonation make it fall down the throat quite easily. Also light notes of citric acid in back behind the cascading malt forefront.

Clear orange colored beer with a small tan colored head.

Smell is sweet and hoppy with a citrus rind aroma. There is a slight cinnamon stick and cedar wood scent to this one.

Starts out bittersweet. Bitter and woody with a significant onion taste. Taste doesn't deliver, just woody and bitter with lots of astringency and that onion after taste.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a disappointment. Needs to lose the onion and wood and dry hop more.

Pours a copper gold hue with a good amount of haze from the settled yest. Nice off white head, two fingers high and leaves some nice lacing on the glass even though the retention is sub par.

Very floral ipa, robust pineapple and dark citrus notes. Steady backing of caramel malts that gets a little dank and musty from the yeast on the back end.

Pale and bready malts with a decent does of pine hop character. Quickly the drink turns musty and dank as the finish is dominated with a herbal vegetative quality that coats your mouth and supplies a dull bitterness. Dries well, appropriate malt but the hop flavor is harsh compared to nose.

Medium heavy body with settled yeast. Average to below average carbonation. Dries very well but the dull and dank hops throws off the quality. Very hard to finish the bottle.

Ho hum it's another IPA, decent nose, probably the most pineapple forward that I've ever smelt but nothing else to write home about. Hop flavors are piney and dank, body is sluggish, better to share the bottle.

Fresh bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks mang.

The beer is copper orange and hazy with a half inch of soapy white head. The aroma does indeed bring a nice bouquet of hops. A touch of biscuits with a healthy bitterness in the finish. Decent flavor. Nothing wrong with this beer, but not anything to get excited about either.

A- Pours a pretty light golden amber with a pretty big off white head. Head has good retention and leaves a bit of spotty lacing.

S- Smell is dominanted by tropical fruits. Not really anything else but maybe a hint of bready malts.

T- Everything here is good but its just a lot more tame than I expected. Tropical fruits, more bready malts than I expected.

M- Medium in both body and carbonation.

O- Not bad here not the best. A little more of a hop bite and they may be on to something.

A: Pours a clear orange with a finger of beige head head that fades into a frothy ring with no lacing.

S: Bright citrus dominate the nose--orange and pineapple mostly, but with some grapefruit as well. The finish has some slight pine aromas.

T: Pineapple citrus up front followed by grapefruit. Bitter rind flavors follow after and the beer finishes incredibly bitter. Several seconds after I have a sip, my mouth is coated in bitterness that reminds me of getting drops of Novocaine on my tongue at the dentist's office. Unpleasant, to say the least.

M: Medium body with mid-light carbonation, this beer is slightly watery.

O: This beer smells great, but unfortunately the overwhelming bitterness ruins it and makes it pretty much undrinkable.

A murky golden, almost brown liquid fills the glass and is capped by a light tan medium sized head. While it leaves some good lacing, there is a fair amount of sediment, not normally present in IPAs.

Smells of oranges right off the back, and some malt in the background, pretty one note.

Taste is citrusy, a little light and nice bitter and pith. Good hops throughout, not much malt for me, it needs some more boldness, but it's good.

It has a nice punch and sting, just about right for the medium to light body and good carbonation.

While there are better options out there, this is a fine beer. I don't like the sediment, but the flavors are there.

DOA

Had on-tap at Playground in Santa Ana, CA. Reviewed from notes.

A- Finger thick white head, great retention. Reddish amber color.

S- Hoppy and warm. Spicy hops.

T- Sweet and hoppy, finishes slightly bitter

M- Medium bodied, clean and crisp.

O- It's ok. Nothing stands out and a bit thin in flavor.

A flavorful IPA - piny and sharp.

Pours a clear amber with a nice head, but the foam drops dismayingly quickly. The aroma is bitter citrus and toasty malt. The flavor stands out, with a piny, bitter citrus effect over a toasy malt backbone. The mouthfeel is satisfyingly chewy and prickly.

Poured from a 22-oz. bomber into a pint glass. Color was caramel amber. About a finger of head. White circular lacing on the top with smallish bubbles. Good amount of white film on the sides.

Smelled citrusy, piny hops up front. Very refreshing. Got kind of a peach, grapefruit zest. Sweet caramel in there as well.

Tasted pretty similar to the nose. Refreshing is right. Good balance with not as much bitterness as I’d thought. More lemon on the smell than peach or grapefruit.

Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Short, bitter finish.

Good start to this beer, but I was expecting a bit more, especially with the look.
