This is a great go-to beer, especially for a group with different tastes. The flavor explodes and this hoppy brew starts well and finishes even better. The IBU is 93ish, but well hidden in this delightful brew. BUT, it is a brewed ONCE A YEAR, so get it when it is available. Straw/orange in color, this beer pours great out of the bottle. Love this one in a snifter. Great pine and mango flavor will leave you coming back for a second one. A great complement to any meal. Once again, the Troeg Brothers have produced a must try!

Pale amber color, brilliantly clear. Poured good sized just off white head with good retention.

A bit malty caramel sweet, and a complex hop nose with some citrus and pine. Hop aroma fairly intense.

Big malt up front, somewhat caramelly and sweet. Then loads of piney/earthy hop flavors, yet the overall flavor profile stays somewhat sweet most of the way. A funky animal urine hop flavor that I don't like. A very subtle, smooth bitterness in the finish. The 93 IBUs are well hidden.

Medium body and carbonation. No astringency, minimal warming

I liked everything about it accept for the flavor. Hop preferences are very personal, and this one didn't match my tastes. Still a good beer, but for me some hop variety swaps would improve it for my palate.

Clear reddish copper appearance with slight white head. Aroma is a hoppy sweet. Taste is a sweet hoppy very much like an IPA that is unlike and amber red ale I have had.

Clear amber color, above average carbonation but still feel a little thin. Aroma is pine,malt and mild citrus. Taste comes off almost identical,pine is dominant,not overpowering yet still lingers a while

Poured can (enjoy by 5-17-18) into pint glass. Head quickly fades to a low white skim that then lingers. Clear amber color. Not as much hops smell as I was expecting. Tastes like a good amber/red ale. Medium amount of carbonation. I'm not getting hit with the hops taste that I was expecting. Overall a good beer, I was expecting more though based on the hype. At 6/$12.99, I don't think I will buy again. Maybe these cans aren't fresh enough.

Could be my favorite beer, especially for cold or cool weather. Wonderful taste, amazing feel. No alcohol sharpness. Great for sipping all night.
