ACHops (1328) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2013
On cask @ the brewery. Pours cloudy medium golden with small head. Aroma is big bitter citrus notes. Taste is clean, sweet somewhat thin body. Massive hops - notes of pine, grass, grapefruit. Bitterness lingers but not so much that it interferes with the crisp finish. Incredibly drinkable for the abv.

martin00sr (2696) - Haderslev, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2016
Cloudy amber, thick offwhite head. Fruity and caramely aroma, some pine too. Smells pretty fresh. Flavour has caramel and woody pine. Starts off creamy, then turns bitter and dry, just barely shy of being too rough. Warming alcohol bite and good balance. I like it.

Panzuriel (1922) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Appearance: Hazy medium copper. Finger of white tiny bubbles leaving good lace. Nose: sweeter medium candy malts. Aspects of pine, citrus and tropical fruit. Taste: sweet medium malts, citrus, tropical fruit and touch of pine. Honey. Body: Medium with good texture. Decent carbonation. Parting thoughts: a very solid DIPA. Hoppy, yet sweet with a good alcohol hit.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6621) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a cloudy peach color with a medium sized fluffy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet pine, lemon and tropical fruit. The flavor was sweet and tangy with cactus, pine, lemon, pineapple and mango. Long finish that turned a bit dry. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Slightly hazy orange-gold with a frothy white head. Lots of lacing the glass. Great aromas of grapefruit and pine. Medium to heavy bitter, full body. Lively carbonation and a long, bitter finish.

neongolden (1189) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
(355ml bottle from boxbeers.dk, date code illegible) Pours clear medium orange with a big pile of long-lasting white froth and lots of lace. Aroma of tangerine, white grapefruit, candied peach, grass, spicy, some pine resin over reasonably sweet malt with some honey and bread to it. Palate is semi-sweet with a mix of orange, tangerine, lime, guava and pine up front over some light bread notes. FInish is dry and rather bitter with citrus oil, pith, pine, resin, spicy hops and a touch of alcohol heat. Medium, oily body with fairly low carbonation. It’s a bottle of AleSmith in Europe so surely not as fresh and bright as it could be,

Bulk_Carrier (3630) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - AUG 11, 2016
This was poured into a shifter. The appearance was a orange (peach skin), color with a thin white foamy head atop of the beer. Thin delicate sticky lacing clings to the glass. The aroma starts off with sweet tangerines, grapefruits and peaches and slides over top of a nice caramel backbone. The flavor starts sticky with the blend of the hops to the malts, and adds a light bitter resin for balance. There’s a sly dry peachy to caramel aftertaste leading into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs light. Bitter resin shows some harshness but not too much. Overall, it’s a good West coast styled DIPA that I could have again.

willisread (2275) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear orange with a finger of head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a thin ring around the glass edge. Lovely orange aromas with some tangerine and light caramel and pine resin. Very citrus forward in that classic west coast way. Some honey and caramel on the palate, but with fine, prickly carbonation and even though it is balanced it still feels light in the mouth. Bitter finish with more orange and citrus notes. Very nice.
