Pours a brilliant golden light copper color with a frothy one inch ivory head that leaves thick lacing as it dissipates.

Slightly sweet, grainy malt, resin, dank cannabis, and underpinnings of citrus form the initial aroma. Onion and pine surface late, adding complexity.

Flavor reveals more citrus dominance, becoming moderately bitter mid palate, and finishing fairly dry. Grapefruit, lime, and resin hit early in the profile, with grassy, earthy notes carrying into the finish. Notes of mango are slight. The malt backbone is extremely subtle and slightly grainy.

Body is moderate, carbonation a tad high, along with moderate astringency and slight alcohol warmth.

Good levels of hop flavoring and bitterness, but wish the malt were less grainy. More specialty malt would help. Hop citrus character could stand a touch more complexity.

Can shared by Curran last night, thanks man.

Pours a dirty earthy orange, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells fairly citrusy, with some lemon zest and pine leading the way.

This tastes fairly good, but it's got a fairly watery middle, that leaves the flavors falling a bit flat. There's something missing. The notes of pine, citrus, grass, and a bit of caramel malt do taste good, they just don't pop like I know they should.

The body on this one is light, with a crisp but slightly watery mouthfeel, as mentioned above. There is a moderate amount of carbonation.

This falls just a bit short, some tweaks and it would be excellent.

The beer pours out in a light clear yellow color with a hint of orange in there. It pours out with a 2-3 finger rocky head with some sticking on the glass.

The aroma is killer. Tons of big sweet tropical and citrus fruit. You get mango, pineapple, and just tons and tons of sweet sweet tangerine, peach, orange. There’s a bit of sweet caramel malt in the back too, but it’s mostly that big fruity aroma.

The flavor hits your tongue first some bitterness, then there’s tons of roundy fruity flavors. You get that citrus and mango and tropical. Then the beer hits you hard with that really strong dry, grapefruit pith bitterness. It’s quite strong, but refreshing as well. That truly is the highlight of the beer. It pops up on you and is so refreshing.

There’s a good balance with this beer because of the bready malt in the middle, but it’s not overly sweet and balances quite well with the hops, while still being a hugely hop bomb.

Unfortunately there’s no date on this beautiful lime green can, but it sure tasted fresh.

This was a pleasantly amazing surprise for an extra from a beer trade. Wow, this stuff is killer. For context, I would say this pushes towards more than clean hop, but sweet malty IPA. This is definitely less sweet and more of that strong longing bitterness than 60 Minute. I would actually say it’s just a better made version of that beer.

Can from Peter. THANKS DUDE! Pours light copper orange, mostly clear and ever so slightly hazy, with a half finger white head. Aroma of bitter piney orange rinds, flowery notes, with sweet caramel in the back. Flavor is bright bitter orange peel with a rather present caramel malt backbone for a single IPA. Sweet orange peel finish that lingers with dry pine bitterness. Resinous, with medium carbonation. A nice brew all in all.

A: Slightly hazy burnished gold color, with many fine bubbles streaming up and a snow-white head and lacing.
S: Highly citrusy hop aroma.
T: High bitterness with citrus hop flavor, which doesn't completely hide the candy-sweet malt, though it certainly dries out a bit in the finish.
M: Light bodied given the strength, lots of carbonation.

Very nice, easy to drink IPA.

12 FL. OZ. can
Served in a teku glass

A - It pours a brilliant amber color and is crystal clear. It is topped with two inches of off-white head.

S - The smell has some faint citrus and tropical fruit aromas. I even get a little juniper, but the smells are not strong. The aromas are good, but weak.

T - The taste starts out with weak citrus and barely perceptible tropical fruit. As I consume the taste grows with each subsequent drink. A pine finish become apparent. I was disappointed at first but this beer is growing on me the more I drink it.

M - Moderate to thin.

O - This is one of the easiest drinking IPA's that I have had. I could drink this all day. The flavor is subtle enough to not overwhelm the palate after a couple beers. But that being said, it is not an IPA that a single serving would satisfy my craving for hops. The taste makes it great for having a few, but lacking in enough flavor for cravings.

I was able to try this on tap at Flipdaddy's Mason location.

PsycHOPathy came to the table a very light gold in color. A one finger, snow white head on top. The aroma was outstanding. Big, juicy hop aromas. Oranges, grapefruit, some generic tropical fruit aromas.

I loved this beer. Lots of late addition hopping is evident. The malt profile is subtle and provides a great base for the abundance of hops. Not overly bitter for such a full flavored IPA. Quite refreshing for such a hoppy beer. Dry, light, and well carbonated. Finishes incredibly quickly and has you craving another drink. Alcohol is well masked.

Overall, I'm incredibly impressed. I can't wait until the cans begin hitting local stores. This may become a staple in my fridge. Well done MadTree. I can't wait to try more of your beers.

Thanks @WesMantooth! Rec'd in NBS BIF #1

Good couple fingers of head, held for a spell then tapered off into a lite beautiful layer.
Citrusy lemon zest meets grapefruit, a bit piney meets grassy. Some bready malt comes through nicely.
Taste starts with citrus, goes to grassy and then bready malt that takes a backseat to an earthy bitterness. Crisp yet slightly resiny on the finish.
Overall, quite good. I will seek this out again.
