Finally get to try this after a trade with mdg164, thanks! 5 week old bottle. Pours orange gold with a big clingy white head. Aroma is soft, grapefruit and pine resin on top of caramel. Mildly caramel malt backbone gives way to grapefruit and pine resin hop. Oily grapefruit peel hop bitterness in the finish. This is essentially PtE light.

Defreni (2580) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Fad: Taster og pint på brewpub. Orangegul klar øl. Meget frisk, med masser af citrus og bitterhed. Gammeldags IPA med for meget bitterhumle. Superfrisk og ellers lidt kedelig i forhold til forventningerne.

chinchill (1715) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2014
On tap at the RR Brewpub. A: golden amber; excellent clarityr. Somewhat weak head still leaves good lacing. Aroma: mild for style; floral with hints of herbs and honey. Flavor: some light malts evident in the finish and aftertaste. Feel: smooth; body is light for style; rather low carbonation. O: excellent excepting mouthfeel.

Very nice IPA. Beautiful medium amber color. Lots of pine and grapefruit on the nose. Light malt in taste. Higher carbonation. An excellent beer, but I should have had it before the pliny.

At Belmont station in Portland with Taylor, Stephen, and Dina. Pours bronze golden with layer of white head. Aroma is fresh earthy and some spicy hops, mild resinous green notes. Taste is soft hops, full bodies malty grainy bite. Finish is delicious and subtle. I like it a lot. Would session all day.

Draft at monks cafe in Philly. Hoppy, dark citrus, pine, strong bitter finish with a sticky resin note that lingers. Interesting combination of flavors and mouthfeel with a pretty high carb. Strong spice bite on the finish that stands out. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stoutnick (454) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2014
Golden (lagerish) pour. Aroma is mild hops, not massive fruits. taste is hops, mild (sessional) sweetness, crisp floral bitterness. Finish is perfect - leaves you wanting more. Overall, a lovely India Pale.

Poured on tap at Urge. Golden amber color with medium soapy white foam. Aromas of pine, grass, bisquit and a little citrus. Taste is much of the same and very resinous. Finish is dry and has a lingering bitterness.
