MANY thanks to TasterMike for this one! 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a clear golden amber color. The head is a one finger white shade thatís relatively soapy, yet consistent and dense. Retention is quite solid, and so is the lacing left behind. S: Oh yeah, thatís the stuff. This brings the hops in a fantastic manner - it doesnít bring any significant biting pine notes, rather itís mostly stuff like melon, mango, and grapefruit. The bready malts come through enough...and I do mean íenoughí. Which is to say itís quite faint, but not nonexistent. T: Oh yeah, thatís the-- wait, I wrote that down already. Nevermind, this just works brilliantly. The first few sips have a decent malt backbone sandwiched by a fruity opening and a mildly bitter finish. Right after the swallow, itís very reminiscent of fruit juice. People who say that an IPA canít/shouldnít be balanced need to try this - the hop flavor, the bitterness, and the malt backbone are in perfect harmony with one another. If this uses crystal malt - and I think I can taste hints of its toffee qualities buried in here - I may have to drop my petty grudge towards it, because this beer is fantastic. M: I donít really notice the low carbonation or medium body too much - itís so dry (in all the right ways) that it still goes down with superb ease. Malt sweetness builds very slightly on the aftertaste, but itís not bothersome by any means. O: Holy frig, this is like Sculpin on steroids. Ergo, itís now in my top 5 list for IPAs. This is the kind of beer that makes me want to move to San Diego just so I can consume this like water.

Gluepot (359) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
On tap at the Churchkey, DC. A pungent nose featuring grapefruit, orange and some pine resin. The taste starts off with a bang as well, with bitter resin and grapefruit backstopped by a touch of sweet malt. But the taste falls away quickly and thins out way to soon. Quite high carbonation.

Almost clear gold beer, short white head. Palate is airy, smooth and semi dry. Good fine carbonation. Soft malts with light creamy sweetness. Very mild skunky hops. Orange and lemon with some citric peel. Hop spice. Marmalade, medium pine. The smooth finish brings more hop spice. Nice.

Holdwine (1150) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Nice, classic IPA with a more earthy feel to it. Almost an APA, but with enough restraint to make this very drinkable, even at 7%. Quite good.

Bottle from Bottle Baron. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, pine and menthol. Flavour of chalky hops, grass and a peppery finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Prickly fizz. Bursting with hoppy goodness.

McNeillR (2142) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Pale firmly hazy golden, thin white cap and soft spotted lacing. Nose is a decent stoking pine and passion fruit, soft bread sweetness and big rich inviting mango. Initial taste is a lean, foamy fizzy gummy sweet soaked in your favourite Tropicana carton. Carbonation is sleek but thereís an incredible, if not magical, thick and resinous and slightly creamy but fades like a delicious cream soda. Finishes slightly sweet, but a decent scroll of passion fruit again and lingers out a nice chalky grapefruit.
