Alpha10 (601) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
2016/08/27 - Pours a deep gold colour with a thick, foamy, white head that slowly reduces and leaves ample lacing. Aroma is very fruity; lots of melon, orange, light mango, citrus (orange, lemon and grapefruit), caramel and pine. Taste is more melon, orange and lemon, mango with a moderately sweet caramel backbone and a resinous finish. Mouthfeel is medium and slick with lightly biting carbonation and a dry, moderately bitter finish. Nice balance and tons of fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eructoblaster (3805) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle - 500ml. Cloudy golden body with an average, lasting, white foamy head. Lovely hoppy aroma with mango, orange, pineapple, and grapefruit hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, and coriander notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Great stuff!

jamestulloch (3377) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2016 Keg and bottle from the brewery. Hazy orange body with a thin white head. Good lacing. Aroma of orange, lemon, lime, melon and flowers. Flavour of lime zest, hay, minerals and grass. Medium body with an oily texture. Light fizz. Fresh and zippy. A delicious fruity IPA - tingling with hops.

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle from the source. Not more than 2 weeks old. Pours slightly hazy yellow with firm off-white head. Aroma’s bittersweet citrus, resin. Pretty straightforward. Tastes of bitter citrus, and, well, that’s pretty much it. Perhaps a tropical note too. Crisp, somewhat grainy, with citric and resiny bitter finish. Good. Yet extremely one-sided and slightly aggressive in the mouth - I wouldn’t want a whole pint of this.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
650ml bottle from the brewery in Toronto, Ontario. Golden orange in colour with a thin white head, good lacing. The aroma is of tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine and caramel. The flavour has that amazing citra hop tropical fruitness to it, good malt balance, pineapples and oranges. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy. I love citra hopped beers. An excellent IPA, great balance.

Bottle bought at the brewpub. The aroma is flowery, very fresh. Like perfume. The taste is really good. Just lovely.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body with a one inch frothy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is an equal mix of citrusy hops and caramel maltiness. A slight hint of yeastiness to the aroma as well. The flavor is a little more malt focused than I would like, there’s a fair amount of bitterness in here, but not quite enough. Lingering husky and grainy maltiness after the hops fade. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation.
