evergreen0199 (2908) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle hauled back from California by Colin, many thanks to him for that. A hazy golden/orange coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, dank, citrus, grapefruit on the nose. Taste is much the same hoppy, dank, slightly malty, citrus, grapefruit and a little rye. Quite bitter but in a good way. A quality IPA from California.

Hazy yellow color with a really cream medium white head. Taste is resinous with citrus, though more resin on the aftertaste. Malt balance is perfect. Carbonation has some of the finest bubbles, and LOTS of them, that Ive encountered, especially in an IPA. Dry, and super-easy drinking.

Arayaga2 (2103) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Slightly hazy yellow with minimal head. Aroma is where it shines: resinous with citrus and berry notes. Taste is same, but lighter, and dry with clean bitterness into the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Light Amber color. Aroma is hops, citrus and some fruits. Taste is a nice combination of citrus, pine, hops and fruits. A good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bookman10 (909) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Pours a cloudy, white-yellow (like a wit), with minimal head. Aroma is full of a very strong grapefruit, with other florals and some grassiness. Flavor is big and bold--citrus/grapefruit, with loads of hop bite in the finish. Very bitter beer with a pretty dry finish. Top-notch.

MetalNHopHead (1299) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAR 5, 2016
A single-hop IPA featuring Nelson Sauvin brewed with rye in the West Coast style? Yes to all of that, please. A golden orange pour with a snowy, rocky head. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango, peach cream, lemongrass, and bread aromas. Flavors are complex yet beautifully cohesive. Lemon balm, spicy rye, tangerine, vinous grape, and tropical juice. Mouthfeel is thick, semi-dry, crisp, sticky, balanced. Just beautiful.

thornecb (5413) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to coat surface. Tropical fruit and onion aromas. Soft with sweet and sour caramel upfront turning to earthly pumpernickel in the lasting finish.

Alexanderdahl (131) - DENMARK - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle Pours hazy orange w light head. Juicy nose with lots of grapes in it, and taste is just the same. Juice, Juice, Juice and so easy drinkable. Has a sharp grape bitternes that just disappears as quick as it appears and ends up dwelling on a really light body and citrus fruits.

LinusStick (3202) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
One of the rare instances that Im blown away by an IPA. Aroma was big and juicy. Mango with dank cat piss and heavy pine and earth. Pour was a medium hazy gold with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was big and hoppy. Those strong hop flavors are amplified in the taste with a nice strong bitterness for a backbone. As soon as the swallow hit, the rye spiciness resonated and dried the finish up nicely. I might say this is the best IPA Ive had all year (but its only February so well see)! Nice carbonation
