GT2 (8510) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Tap at Hop N Bean in Sisters, OR. Found on tap all over PNW on my beer trip. Clear lighter orange with excellent, webby lacing. Nose is dank, juicy, clean grapefruit and orange style hops. Taste is sweaty, salty, juicy thick melon/mango, candied lemon, mild sugar balance. Great, soft palate. Clearly impressive. Don’t pass on this if it’s on tap.

Dogbrick (8259) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Hazed amber pour with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit and malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of ripe fruit and bready malt. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Above average overall.

mcberko (6703) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
On tap at Horse Brass Pub, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of strong citrus hops and tropical fruits (pineapple). Flavour of pineapple and mango, and citrus hops, unbalanced to the hops with not much malt, but delicious in its lack of balance. Excellent.

lusikka (6347) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Draught @ CBC2014, Copenhagen. Pours a bright golden colour with a white head. Aroma of rich juicy fruitiness, kiwi and hops. Rich flavour of juicy hops, kiwi, tart grapefruity notes and mild caramel. Medium bodied and a dry, bitter, citrusy finish. Extremely well balanced. Refreshing and fresh.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Golden, faint haze, light carbonation, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrus peel and pith nose.   A little dank too.   Smooth citrusy bitterness on the tongue, slightly mealy.   A moderate IPA, one that isn’t too bitter, nor too aromatic.   The mealiness on the tongue really detracts for me.   Nice citrusy and floral notes, but that mealy/cereal aspect I don’t like.   Would be an 8 otherwise.   Body and mouthfeel are somewhat viscous.   Strong pith and citrus peel on the nose, lacking sweetness, low bitterness.   Soft lingering cereal like mealiness.   Lots about this are good, but the cereal/mealiness just makes it only average.   Wished it were more floral to combat that mealy maltiness.   Good IPA, that could be great if it were cleaned up a tad bit more.   Needs to be brighter, with more floral sweetness.   Then we’d have something!

Tap @ CBC’14.
Pours clear golden color with a small white head. Very nice fruity and hoppy aroma, resin and caramel malts with pine needles. Resinous hops and exotic fruits on the flavor, gooseberries and grass on the finish. excellent balance, refreshing.

after4ever (6169) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Draft at special brews. Pours a murky dark amber with a thin but dense and creamy white head. Huge sweet floral and tangerine nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, floral, and tangerine mid palate. Pleasantly understated finish. Beautiful sweet ipa.
