Pale golden-yellow color, decent head.

Fruity hoppy aroma, defined by orange, mango, lime and malts, with hints of wheat and pine.

Bitter from the beginning, bready malts bind the hops to a pleasant first impression. Carbonation is lively, supports the straigh, dry but very refreshing character of the beer. Pine, malts and hints of honey add complexity to this hop fixated IPA. Hop is very citraic, bitter from the first split-second, gets mixed up well with the other ingedients, creating a very hoppy but balanced beer. Mouthfeel is dry, chewy, hop punches the tastebuds. Fantastic long hoppy aftertaste, with lime still being present. Still some sweetness prevails for a long time, adding a syrupy note, which creates a great support for the hops.

I like hops but not ones that finish in a bitter, biting sort of way. The most entertaining thing about this beer is the label. Bear + deer antlers = beer. Get it?!@ Not very well balanced. This is to IPAs what Heineken is to Pilsners. A bitter hell.

Purchased as a single can from Total Wine, Tampa. Pours a semiopaque amber with white, pillowing head. Smells of tree-fruit, fig, berry, strawberry, and pine. Tastes like a berry IPA; lots of sweet, blueberry syrupyness followed by malts and caramel. Hints of dried apple and plantain throughout with "Belgian spice" (coriander/ginger/clove/etc.) and hops on the tail-end. A velvety body permeates sweetness throughout while the prickly carbonation that follows punctuates the hops and spice. The more I sip this beer, 2 things come to mind: First, that it feels like an American IPA & Belgium Triple hybrid and two, that it would go great with a bowl of strawberry cough.
