I hated this beer when it first came out on draft. It has grown on me both on draft and in the bottle.

Out of the bottle, has similar color with less haze and stink than that of neighboring Georgetown brews. It also has less of the overly citrus taste while srill being a bit much for my taste. It is 1000x more quafable. I also enjoyed the lower amount of bubbles that I see in some of my prefered beers in Seattle.

A little watered down but not nearly as boring as The Immortal. Maybe the improved brew and the new financial chops of a maceobrewing company did this one good.

I still hate the packaging and tap handle. The space hop appears to be barfing while tripping; not what the image I want while drinking.

I typically don’t drink IPAs but my wife and I went to Applebee’s and instead of drinking the same old Blue Moon or Fat Tire on their limited beer selection I went out on a limb and tried something different, not I’m glad I did.

I ordered it in there brewtus Glass. I want to say it’s about 22 OZ.

It came with a thick finger length head with great lacing and a Hazy Amber look.

I was worried it was going to be another Hoppy overload beer but it’s really nice, great citrus scent and taste it is a nice bitter and hoppiness, but a nice sweetness to back it up. A lot of complexity going on here. It is definitely my new go to Applebee’s beer! Will be buying again!!

Nice easy drinking dipa..

A little more fresh hop aroma and flavor than most doubles.. Has plenty of malt sweetness to back it up but still very hoppy..

Solid brew.

12oz marked 19 Dec 17. Bright orange color with a finger of white head. Citrus and pine smell. Medium feel. Citrus and pine flavors at first, switching to earthy malt flavors and a very dry finish. This starts out good, but I have to knock it down a bit for the aftertaste.

Very cool beer. Nice bottle that I don't see in my area. Picked one up in Virginia and enjoyed it very much. Smell is strong with fruit and some malt. Taste is bitter and hoppy and a little citrus. Very enjoyable. Wish I could get more

Picked a six up at the local...glad to see it here. I have a soft spot for IPA and this didn't disappoint. Poured well after a roll on the counter. Orange peel and earth hit the nose. Dry...almost too much on the back end. But very drinkable. 8.2% this will creep on you quick. Great spring brew when temps hit above 65°. It delivers and then some.

I loved the hoppy aroma and flavor and it was a popular beer at my work conference when the other beer ran out. Love the package and the label.
