AdiBeer (1354) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Aroma: intense flowers, tropical fruits, light grass. Appearance: clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: bitters intensify, grass and flowers, but a nice sweetness remains of tropical as well, getting a little dry in the finish. Overall: very nice IPA, great aroma and palate. Pint at Neighbourhood, San Diego.

a little light in color, but a nice fluffy white head. a wonderful resinous hop aroma, but at first the flavor wasn’t as clean, and bracingly bitter. that, however, did not last long. as the beer opened up, the flavor grew more complex. Fresh piney hop flavor everywhere, with a hint of peppery spice and malty sweetness for balance. the body was a touch thin, but that was more than offset by it’s incredible smoothness and drinkability. deserving of it’s place among the best of the "regulaR" IPAs."

Clear dark gold color. Honey, flowery notes, some citrus in the nose. Taste is similar to the smell. Super super dry. Delicious.

RABinCO (1365) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Draft pint. Clean golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is pine, bright citrus, hints of tropical fruit and a light caramel. Taste is assertively bitter, grassy, lots of fresh orange zest and hints of grapefruit juice. Crisp, refreshing, easy drinking, but full of flavor.

Draft at Torenado SF. Pours a deep golden orange. Fucking hop bomb - loads of pine and citrus on the nose. Taste is piney resin up front with a lasting bitterness that holds superbly. Fucking bitter. Not as easy to drink compared to pliny. Pretty damn tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solidfunk (4168) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Very piney with a super bitter finish. A hop bomb in all the right ways. Some sweet malt and sugarcane as well. Gold pour with good head and lacing. Tap at Monks Cafe.

gad905 (81) - - SEP 29, 2014
Draft at RRBC. Clear gold, head recedes but lingers. Sweet citrus slightly tropical hop aroma, some malt notes. Medium sweet bready malt then fairly big bitterness, resin, touch of floral, orange lemon grapefruit citrus and some mango pineapple tropical. Medium body, softish carb. Really good but pretty understated, very drinkable. Plenty of complexity to keep you coming back.

Bottle. Aroma is a clean, dank hop. Appearance is a light bronze with good lacing. Taste is hoppy with a dank finish. Very effervescent and refreshing. Palate is light hops. Overall, a great IPA. Very much rivals the elder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
