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.

Pours hazy orange with a thick and foamy yellow white head that leaves some nice wet lacing. Aroma is wonderful sweet and floral tropical citrus. Orange and apricot. Tastes juicy with orange and grapefruit citrus. Really well-balanced with a nice malt backbone, mildly sweet citrus and some solid closing bitterness. Truly outstanding everyday IPA.

Turtles (1194) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2016
Tap @ Bishops Arms Hornsgatan. Hazy golden with a medium sized white head leaving rich lacing. Hoppy citrus aroma, orange, apricote and pine. Really smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonated still soft on the palate. Hoppy citrus taste with a rather high pine bitterness, rich malt backbone and mild caramel notes. Solid brew!

TattooJack (403) - Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Poured from the bottle of a six pack, hazy orange with white head. I get a little tropical, more of the dry grapefruit, good alcohol content, drinks about 15 minutes a beer, this should be available in a 12-pack.

It has that initial punch of hops at the beginning and then fades into a malty finish. The bitterness never gets overbearing which allows the malts to stand out a bit more.

Draft at 600 Degrees, Georgetown TX. Fruity, citrus aroma. Solid flavor with well balanced hoppy resin, pine and citrus. Lots of depth with a long bitter finish. Really drinkable IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ThirstyBird (2390) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Pours a clear rich gold color with a tan head. The smell is citrus, toasted malt. The taste is citrus, pine, crisp and shape with a dry ending. The body isLight+ and oily with tight, crisp carbonation. Maybe not what it once was back in the day but still damn tasty.
