Tap. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is fruity, floral, citrus and pine hops with biscuit malt and tropical fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with supporting malt, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2012
On tap: Pours a clear deep amber bronze with a stringy-lacing froth of white head. Has a fresh citrusy hoppy nose with some lightly toasted pale malty undertones. Starts with a mild sweetness that quickly dries out revealing lots of grapefruity hops and crisp bitterness before a smooth bittersweet finish. A true "west-coast-style" IPA that I wish was more widely available.

Beerman6686 (5053) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2012
This poured a nice hazy lighter orange color with a beige head. Aroma was lots of very fruity hops, mainly mangos and peaches, some grassy notes, as well as grainy malts, and some orange notes too. Flavor was much the same, just not quite as prominent, lots of fresh tropical fruit notes, yet fairly dry and biring. Pretty great beer.

Pours a hazy deep amber with a medium creamy off white lacing head. Arome of lemon, tropical fruits, grapes, light caramel and toast. Flavor of grapes, tropical fruits, mixed citrus, light caramel and lightly toasted bread. One of my favorits from BO.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Serving: Draft at the brewery. Hazy dark gold pour. The nose is lighter than expected with some tropicals. The flavor is a little floral then tropical. A light but lasting bitterness paired with a little light grain. Dry on the finish. I rather enjoyed this one.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2012
On tap at the brewery in Berlin, MD. Pours a mostly clear, orange-golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is solid with a nice grassy tangerine and tropical fruit with a light floral and lemon note. Clean pale malt backing with a touch of graininess that really showcases the single hop well. Flavor is similar. Lots of tropical fruit and grass with a solid grapefruit, lemon, and tangerine presence. Light grainy pale malt backing again allows the hops to shine. A few floral notes towards the end as this finishes dry and bitter with lots of fruits and a nice crispness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light, pretty crisp body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really solid and easy drinking IPA. The light grainy malt backing really lets the single hop show off it’s complexity. I might need to check out this Motueka hop. Great beer.
