Reid (2078) - 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.

red gold pour. Aroma cabbage, cat piss, pine. Tastes melons, cat piss, pine, juniper. waterly light palate lets hops take over. seems more bitter than 50ibu since malts are so subdued. I didn’t like this the first time I tasted it, but in a blind tasting, I liked it a lot. I averaged my scores for this.

Draught @ Bakgården Både &, Kristiansand
Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, peach, pine, grape, melon and citrus. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long peach, citrus and piney finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (15377) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2015
On tap at Både&. A hazy orange colored beer with a small off-white head leaving some curtains. There’s a lovely pine cone and grapefruit aroma, with some generic tropical fruits and malts in the back. The bitterness isn’t overdone in any way, but it’s sure there. Pine cones, resins and grapefruit, some peaches and some malts too. It’s full bodied, quite dry, and nicely carbonated. Lasting hop dominated finish. Wonderful this one, really lovely. 150711

deyholla (8114) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2015
On tap at Hop Shop Ballard. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is grass forward with pine and a straw backbone. Flavor is similar with a straw and grass combination with a bit of grapefruit underlying.

brokensail (13202) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 29, 2015
On tap @ Breakside. Clear golden pour with a white head. Has a bit of a fruit salad nose to it with some pineapple, orange, grapefruit, and peach. Definitely a bit of pine, some bread, and grass. Big orange juice flavor to it. Some bitter pine and citrus rind, zesty grapefruit, and a hint of sweet melon. Nice.

IndianaRed (2865) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Bottel hazy pale soft golden with a full white head. Mild hoppy aroma of melons and some citrus. Plenty bitter in the flavor but not the sharp fresh hop notes. More melon and light woody biter.

Alphadelic (1922) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2015
I get a lot more malt from the nose than I anticipated cut with a little orange. In the mouth there is plenty of dry grapefruit a little sticky caramel and a little onion? It’s good. Not worthy of all the praise I hear it given.

drjay44 (2963) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2015
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, off white head, with some lacing, over a clear light gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is heavy grapefruit, light pine, floral notes from the hops, light toasted malts, balance to the hops, no esters......taste is light cereal malts, slightly sweet, hints of sulfer, with heavy grapefruit, pine, resin from the hops, finishing with a lingering moderate bitter finish, balance to the hops.....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, light alcohol, foamy carbonation. This is a typical American IPA, dominated by American hops in both aroma and flavor. The malt back bone is a bit light in complexity, but the dominant hops make for a clean, refreshing beer. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Bottle. Super tropical with restrained bitterness and reasonable alcohol. Super punchy hop flavor. Wish I had a lot more of this!
