One of the worst IPAs I've had in a long time...citra and mosaic? Where? It's all malt...no carbonation...sweet, not hoppy...don't let the hop bill trick you.

What a malty mess. Nothing but malt on the taste. I am highly upset that I hunted this down. Well within freshness range. Taste is malt, malt, and more malt. Will not seek again. Overrated garbage brew.

Best by 06/2015 and it is almost April. The one bottle I got had to be way past its prime. Almost no hop aroma or taste. Tasted just like an amber ale. I am sure this beer is much better fresh but not the one I got.

Anyone with a score higher than Coldkiller’s must be drinking something mislabled. He sees this beer as I did.
There is not a speck of hop on this beer. It’s not a garbage brew; I rate it as slightly better than almost undrinkable. I finished the six-pack. Lots of malt for sure, but it’s not disgusting. The dripping hops on the label says they were squeezed into the beer.
This was a test. If you raved about this beer, you may be, at least, confused. Or someone is.
Me thinks this a secret product of Beer Advocate to weed out unknowledgeable reviewers.

Maybe the biggest IPA disappointment I've ever come across - it goes to show you can't listen to what you read online. HEAVY malt bomb, discordant with the bitterness. A hot mess.

Bought a growler blind from the high review. Man was I disappointed. No hope, poor malt bill, unpleasant bitterness not from hops. Yuck. Terrible aroma, look is too dark. Does not taste like an IPA, tastes like a small brewery APA that is subpar. How disappointing. Hope that this growler maybe was just off, but it came from a very reliable source in DC.

This was a major disappointment for me. Maybe I had a bottle with too much (best by date in 6 weeks) age. There was no distinct flavor....it was just meh.

Really don't care for IPAs, and as such wouldn't have tried this beer but for the brewery's facebook page. After conversation with someone at the brewery, I told them I don't like the flavor of pine, they suggested this beer. Said hoppy, but no pine. And there it is pine flavor.

Went to the public house on a beautiful Portland summer evening for BB XXIII. Oooh, Fresh Squeezed is on to. I remember how great that was last year, we should get that too. Wait what? What happened to this beer? Last year it was a citrus delight, this year not so much. Still a beautiful, burnt orange color. The nose has a touch of citrus, but I'm also getting a musty note that is unpleasant. The taste is a bomb. Like dissolved aspirin with a malt backbone. Those aren't citra hops as I know them.
