fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Draught at Maloneís Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Hazy amber color; medium sized creamy head. Moderate aroma of malt and hop. Decent malt flavor, strong hopping and strong bitterness, but somehow with stale qualities; the resins are still present, the fruits less. The final is also medium dry.
Powerful but not impressive.

Oakes (11798) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Fruity, lightly spicy, blonde...the strength is quite evident, good balance though, clean pale malts, citrus, bitterness, just a nice balanced example.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 5, 2011
(22oz bottle) Pours a lightly hazy golden orange body with a dense frothy cream head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, florals, lemon, and grass. Flavor of caramel malt, citrus, florals, and grass with a dry, bitter, somewhat chalky finish.

bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bomber from Brewforia. Pours light amber gold with a creamy near white head. Moderate grapefruit aroma. Near full bodied. Flavor is light caramel with a great deal of hop - which seems to be grapefruit and floral. Itís only moderately harsh, and itís quite bitter. Nice drink thisín.

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 2, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of white head. S: Smells pretty mediocre (and I might be a bit generous there). Some floral and lightly spicy hops with tons of bread and pale malts. A hint of citrus and even more sweetness, mostly toffee with a touch of caramel. T: Fairly bready in terms of the malt flavor with some grassy hops and a light floral and citrus note. There is tons of toffee, a little bit of caramel, and a very stale feeling about the beer. Pretty "blah". M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation. O: Another lackluster IPA from the PNW, unfortunately. Wasnít a fan of this one.

Lubiere (9429) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
A hazed golden DIPA with a thin creamy lacing light mocha head. In aroma, a great classic IPA with loads of piney and floral hops, citrus pulp. In mouth, a nice citrus pulp with light floral hops, light alcohol warmth, a bit on the light side, but good. On tap at Courtyard Marriott Portland, Oct. 5 2012.

Theydon_Bois (6994) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2013
Tap at APEX, PDX, 26/05/13. Hazy light orange. Nose is hop forward, citrus, orange pith, light pine. Taste comprises hops, orange pith, light pine, citrus fruits. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, pine bite and hop bitterness in equal doses as the curtain falls. Decent easy drinking DIPA, not too complex but well balanced and clean.

bb (6697) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 23, 2013

DuffMan (6162) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. The body is more golden than amber, hazy, with a thick lasting white head. Aroma quite hoppy, grapefruit, grass, a bit of pine. Malts are a bit chewy, hops are a bit astringent, grapefruit and green grass flavours. Very bitter. This lacked something that was hard to pin down, and it didnít quite come together for me. Iím still having trouble letting go of the Stone 16th Anniversary IIPA I had a couple of days ago.
