SlovakSniper (4038) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2012
(Une canette qui provient d’un échange avec Marheb) Un liquide qui présente une robe jaune passablement traversée par de nombreux sédiments. Un col mousseux bien mince. Un nez fortement expressif. Une attaque de houblons fruités. Des tonnes d’agrumes fraîchement pressés : des pamplemousses et des oranges. Des houblons floraux et résineux : la pinède et les merveilles de la nature. Une présence maltée qui connaît son rôle : une touche mielleuse qui ne semble pas vouloir contenir l’explosion des cultivars. Des saveurs très intenses. Des agrumes qui mordent la langue. De la résine qui écorche les papilles. Du parfum. Un crescendo de notes citriques qui mène à une crispation de ma cavité buccale. Des malts qui ne sont jamais capables de contenir cette orgie houblonnée. Une bouche qui m’étonne quelque peu : le pétillement est soutenue et presque trop actif. Un corps qui est de moyenne densité avec une texture qui me semble être à la limite huileuse. Une finale qui est la savante combinaison de notes houblonnées fruitées et résineuses qui cherchent l’intensité et la longueur.

Boutip (5266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
Can (thanks Stephen): Poured a cloudy light yellow color ale with large chunks of protein floating around and a large foamy head with good retention. Aroma of super intense pine hops notes with some citrus and resin notes. Taste is also a super intense mix of pine, resin and light citrus undertones hops with a dry malt backbone that is hard to distinguish from the hops attack. The floral aromas are huge end very enjoyable. Body is full with great carbonation. I must admit the hype is totally justified for this one, truly one of the great IIPA.

16 oz can. Cloudy yellow brown with an off-white head. Nose is orange, pine, caramel and pink grapefruit. Chewy with a buzz. Lots of hops but not so resiny. Taste is unsweetened grapefruit juice, gin, lime and orange peel. What a great citrus melange.

Can from BeerPilgrim11. What a great beer this is; all the high scores are certainly justified! This starts off with a huge tropical fruit aroma; melons, mango, grapefruit, it’s like a uber-hopped summer fruit cocktail. The pour is a rusty gold color with a thin off-white head that yields some spotty lacing. The flavor is just as impressive as the scent, if not more, offering lemon, herbal, and grassy flavors that join the big tropical fruit melange. Not overly bitter but crisp and chalk full of aromatic hops. The finish is dry, bitter, and long-lasting. It’s tasty as hell, has lots of hops, but is also clean and refreshing. This beer is incredible. I’d love to do a taste test with this and Pliny the Elder and I wouldn’t be shocked if I found this to be better.

Appearance: Proud golden orange, TONS of floaters, medium white head. Aroma: Super pineapple, mango, cat piss, lemons and tons of hops, just smells great. Flavour: Bitter, good floral notes, lots of pine and cat piss, nice malt backbone too, pineapple and mango finish, quite lovely.

ThirstyBird (2252) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2012
Appears a cloudy deep honey color with a nice off white head that falls to a skim and stays. Mild lacing. The smell is of grapefruit, topical fruit. A juicy fruity nose with some nice rich malt lingering in the mix. The taste is really wonderful. This is a great DIPA. It’s wet and juicy, tropical fruit, mild bitterness. Really damn good. I loved the mouthfeel of this brew. Light/medium in body it is wet and refreshing...and it’s 8%! So this is a delectable brew and should be sought out if you are into IPAs at all.

Gmoney (442) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Can..Hazy golden pour,fluffy white head,good lace. Aroma is huge citrus fruit notes,pine needles,dank and resinous.Malt sweetness upfront leads to an excellent hop bitterness that builds as you continue to drink it. Juicy hops,strong resin notes,long lingering bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and carbonation. The drinkability of this beer is ridiculous. Amazing.

probstblueribbon (3350) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2012
1 PINT can from pushkinwow (thanks!), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Bright deep golden with a nice white head. Aroma: A true hop tonic, so dank and resinous and piney and citrusy, and fresh and juice and and and, there is sufficient biscuit malt for support but the hops truly shines, lemons and grapefruits and blood oranges...oh my. Palate: Medium+ body, full, soft effervescence. Flav.: huge, oily, resinous, citrusy, piney, dank hops (sound familiar?), sweet biscuity malts, honey, a little yeasty, wow; sweet with big bitterness and a long, bitter, wonderfully hoppy finish.

No wonder this is so highly rated. An ode to hops if there ever was one.

Got in a trade thanks to Circlenine, cheers and happy St Paddy’s day! Poured into Tulilp (had one from the can the other day, looking to compare). Bunch of sediment, two or three fingers of white head, decent retention. Smell is pure hoppieness. More on the fruity citrus side. Taste is smooth, almost closer to sweet than bitter. Viscous and fruity, very balanced, very drinkable. Very good IPA.
