philipmeese (81) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - MAR 27, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours golden with almost no head. Light citrus/hops aroma with the slightest cat piss in the background. Full, challenging flavor and body. Salty, bitter but big. Exciting. Fades toward a sweetness in the aftertaste, balancing the first attack. Overall my favorite Capt Lawrence. I’ll be taking home a Growler of this today!

keanex (1289) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottled February 24, 2014.
Appearance: The body is hazy with a lot of sediment in suspension, rather big particles at that. The head is tall and frothy with a white hue.
Aroma: The aroma has a prominent tropical edge to it of mango and pineapple but backing it is a dank sort of piney aroma. The aroma has good strength and smells nice.
Taste: The flavor is a bit mild compared to the aroma, the malts add a slightly sweet generic maltiness to this, slightly nutty as well. I get mango right away on the intro with a dash of pineapple, the flavor then becomes a bit floral by the finish and dries out by the end with a clean finish.
Palate: Medium bodied, crisp, with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: This is a good IPA, one that I would recommend to customers as a single bottle, but I’d be hard pressed to advise them buying a six pack for $11. If this were $9-$10 this would be a better value.

crazyvin (1859) - New York, USA - APR 11, 2014
A mostly clear golden body with a full white head that had good retention. A nice blend of hops. Mostly grapefruit, but there was some nice grass and one qualities to it. A slightly floral sense and a bit of toasted malts. Flavor was not dominated by grapefruit, but it certainly was the strongest flavor. Toasted malts seemed interesting. A nice dry finish. A decent IPA.

njnut (156) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2014
Pours a bit cloudy and is amber. Quick white head that just about clinged to the glass side for a tiny bit of lace. Aroma was grapefruit and orange peel with a grapefruit taste and finish. A little bitter on the back end. Not bad but just like the other 1,000 grapefruit blast IPA's out there.

bigda83 (32) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Poured slightly hazy, decent head on it. Overall pretty tasty with lots of citrus notes of orange and grapefruit. Nothing really stood out to set it apart from other IPAs that I enjoy, but not a bad brew.

bmoosey (78) - Richmond, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Poured at home out of a 12 ounce bottle thanks to Max. Pours a hazy color with a white head. Smells of citrus and hops. Taste is fruity and citrusy. Overall good IPA.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle: Pours slightly hazy gold with a small white head. Scent is orange, orange-peel. Sweet, soft orange malt over a nice peel bitter. Citrus, pink grapefruit...slightly tropical. Very tasty.

shrubber85 (6978) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle (thanks jtclockwork!). Orange malt and earthy/grassy orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange malt and moderately strong bitter earthy grapefruit peel flavor. Nice.

beerbaaron (927) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Ed5388. Pours a beautiful, brilliant clear light golden orange. Medium frothy creamy white head, mostly lasting with good lace. Pleasant aroma. Soft citrus, some woody pine, biscuit, light caramel. Flavor follows. Nice fruity opening, with a welcome sweetness, leading to earth, pine, biscuit. Medium body. Mild oily. Light dryness. Moderate piney bitterness that doesn’t outlast its welcome. Nice drinkability. Its different, which is a good thing..

Sweet citrus, hops, a little malt. Spices/grass. Taste is a little underwhelming. Smoothish hops, citrus, a slight bitter finish.

EithCubes (4628) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle. Nose is just bursting with lovely hops, pine and citrus fruit, very fresh and a little leafy, some nice tropical hints without showing off. Clear golden pour with a sudsy white head. Taste is medium-bitter with light but persistent sweetness, no tang; somewhat dry and lightly resinous with more volume, medium body with a lightly soapy hop cleanse, everything very clean and not overly aggressive for an IPA. Pine and caramel are backed off but there’s still a nice balance struck. Really solid all-around.
