emacgee (4485) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Pours a brilliant translucent gold with a two finger cascading white head. Aroma is bursting with fruit and citrus character. Mango, sweet citrus juice, tropical, tad spicy, some honey. Flavor is less delicate than the aroma. Spicy bitterness, pink grapefruit, a bit of honey. Spicy palate with a citrus rind bitterness. Awesome

nickd717 (3855) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Tap at Toronado 22nd Anniversary. Clear golden-amber color with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet malt and piney/resinous hops. Flavor is lots of sweet caramel malt, toffee, honey, and heavy-hitting pine/citrus hops. Fairly syrupy and oily palate with lingering hop bitterness. Good stuff.

Drake (11410) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2009
22 ounce bottle courtesy of CrellMoset. Thanks! Pours a hazy peach color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Big resiny citrus notes with a good toffee-like maltiness. Taste is resiny hop notes with citrus, pineapple and a note of toffee. Full bodied. Straightforward double IPA but very good.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 16, 2009
650 mL. Pours a clear apple juice-colored amber with a one-finger, egg-shell head. Awesome, sticky lacing. Aroma is exquisite- pretty much the exact aroma in my opinion to Bells Hopslam: tons of orange blossom and clover honey, big grapefuit hops, fresh citric hops. Taste is caramel, grapefruit hops, spices, honey, and some nutty bitterness. Pretty refreshing actually. As this warms the near 10% comes into play with an extra spicy kick. Very close to Hopslam but lacks the palate.

Skeets (25) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Bottle from Bev Mo (not refrigerated). Pale clear golden color..No head. Nice full piney hop aroma. Flavor is well balanced, pine, some citrus, some light malt. Not too bitter. Hides higher ABV welll. Might not have been fresh, but I still enjoyed this beer.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Interesting IIPA...beautiful liquid gold body with a dense ivory head that left sticky lacing on the inside of the glass. Aroma is aggressive evergreen and bright citrus. Flavor is filled with spruce, douglas fir, and ponderosa...it is amazing how much pine is included in the flavor (by far the most of any beer Iíve tasted). Grapefruit and lemongrass are also present. Medium mouthfeel.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle from Samís. Pours golden with bubbly white head. Nose of tropical fruits, citrus, and some pine. A little sweet. Tastes more sweet than expected, though not cloying... just wish the hops came through a bit more on the taste, particularly in the mid palate. They come back with a bitter, nearly tannic finish, but the citrus was more-or-less lost. Solid, but not as good as expected.

TURDFERGUSON (4028) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle from SAMs. Pours golden with a small white head. Nose is pine, citrus, tropical fruit, light caramel. Pretty nice flavor- tropical fruit, pine. Bitter, slightly astringent finish. Pretty nice, but I think this sculpin is a bit more polished and clean.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - AUG 8, 2009
Drank it while deep sea fishing in La Pepeshka with rcasta. Pours a deep golden with tan head. Medium bodied, nice balance of malts and hopiness flavors of pine and citrus.
