puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Tap at Bling Tiger. Big hoppy aroma and fierce oregano and basil. I seem to be the only one that tasted those, but taste them I did. Even more in the flavor, especially the Oregano, like walking into a pizza parlor. Works as a very nice compliment to the hops. Palate is thick and really not that bitter considering the IBUs. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2008 Draft at BlindtigerOne of the best double ipas I’ve ever had. The flavour was unbelievable, big juicy flowery hops, well balanced with a good dosage of malts. the hop character is absolutely genius. citrus, flower grass, pine, none to overpowering. and such good mouthfeel really juicy hop flavour.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Draft at the Blind Tiger. Nice orange pour, with a thin white film on top. Aroma is pine hops, lemon rind, and citrusy hop oils. The flavor is the same, oily and resiny mouthfeel and good bitterness. There is a lot of citrus in the end, and good malt throughout.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2007
Vermont Brewers Fest ’07. Fruity hoppy aroma. Pale golden. The aroma is quite fruity with notes of peach, apricot, and pear. Earthy with light orange peel and pine. Fresh, light pale malt. Quite light and easy to drink, defying its ABV. A berryish yeast gives this brew some interest. Sweetish from both the hops and the pale malt. A really nice brew.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2011 Partly cloudy dark yellow body topped by small white head. Conventionally malted body with a malt sweetness residing somewhere between honey and caramel. The beer balance is towards the hops. Generous amount of many types of hops with a resulting hop flavour being 75% citrus-fruits and 25% resinous coniferous. Very nice. Bitterness of medium intensity and finish of medium length. Very good although side-by-side I preferred their regular IPA (Holy Cow). But besides the Holy Cow, few beer can Topper.

on tap at the blind tiger grand opening night. dark golden amber color. off white head. aroma is resiny pine, cat piss, wet eucalyptus trees, and a little hemp. flavor is dry and sweet hop, bitter. a little pithy like grapefruit, but there still was a thin caramel malt backbone to tug the other side of the scale. finsih is bitter and warm/faintly hot.
