Reid (1949) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2014
22 oz bomber from "Lifesource" in Salem OR $4.99 This IPA does appear a lighter colour than normal..a deep golden..with what has to be the most attractive head i have seen in a proper IPA,..about an inch thick,tightly bubbled and quite uniform. Very very intense hop aromas..as said in the intro..weird combination of bright citrus peel and normal PNW dankness..but it works. Taste is similar to aroma but much more effervescent grapefruit ( pink) in the end. Lovely mouth feel..intense yet at the same time light and quaffable ( yes i used That word). Very good IPA ..loving this.

My nose thinks of the ocean, though its neither salty nor marine--resin, honey & lemon. frothy white head on clear yellow with orange tinge. flavor starts off a little watery but hops soon fill in, distant malt. aromatic in the mouth, but weightless,

22 oz. bottle from douglas88- thanks again, Douglas! Pours a clear gold color with a finger of white head that laces the glass. Notes of grass, herbs, lemon and grapefruit citrus (more lemon), straw, mellow spice, and some pale and sweet malts. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a really smooth mouthfeel. Herbaceous nose, sweeter flavor and mouthfeel. Really nice IPA. Drinks so easy.

DrSilverworm (6982) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2014
22oz bottle, big thanks to phaleslu for sharing. Labeled 6.7%, with a pretty awesome vintage-map-themed label. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head. Good ropes and dots of lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Nice grapefruit, grassy flavor, big herbal hop character. Some bready caramel malt. Good citrus zest, really enjoy the taste. Fun, juicy flavor. Zesty, moderate-plus bitter, light to moderate sweet. Really satisfying, fun, tasty fresh-hop IPA.

The perfect IPA. Hops are out of this world and hit the palate with a really pleasing citrus and spruce taste.

22 oz. bottle shared by WillRunForBeer. Pours pale gold with a white head. Grapefruit/pine resin aroma. Sharp, bitter flavor. Lots of citrus, but not a great deal of balance. Bitter aftertaste.

jsquire (3565) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Golden colored beer out of the bottle with a foamy white head. Bright fresh hop nose with tropical fruit, pineapple and grapefruit. The hops dominate the flavor too with lots of grapefruit rind, peach, apricot, pineapple and tropical fruit over a juicy caramel and light toast backbone. There is quite the hop burn on the tongue. Nice, hop head beer.

Poured from the tap. Clear, golden yellow with white head. Citrusy hops, some grapefruit, mild caramel malt. Good balance. Resiny finish with hints of sweetness from the citrus.

Creamy chalk white head. Hazy Amber golden color. Big tropical fruity with tons of pineapple and grapefruit with a hint of pale malt. Nice balanced mouth with lots of tropical fruit and grapefruit. Nice clean bitter finish. Not as good as it’s bigger brother, but still very nice.
