callmemickey (2273) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 April 2010. A: Dark orange-amber. Somewhat cloudy. Lively carbonation streaming from the bottom of my tulip. Two-fingered bubbly white head. The first pour receded over the course of a few minutes leaving behind some sticky lacing. Rather impressive for a growler pour. A nice ring and skim maintained throughout the entire glass. S: Large tropical fruit presence. Pineapple, mango, and clementines combined with a healthy dose of grapefruit. Freshly mowed lawn. Some resinous pine notes. Not as bright, but reminiscent of Sculpin’s flavor profile. T: A bit different from the nose. The grapefruit, grass and pine start to take over a bit more as the tropical fruits start to move towards the background. Caramel malt creeps in towards the back. M: Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Not overwhelmingly bitter, but a nice bite in the finish. Doesn’t feel muddled at any point despite quite a few flavors hitting you at times. O: Quite enjoyable. It’s 10am, I am a glass in and studying for a final exam. Really can’t complain. Would love to try right on tap.

mixmasterob (880) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Draught @ The Lodge on Hilton Head Island. I must have had three. Hazy orange pour with a nice white head, lots of lace. Aroma was a blast of all kinds of fruits, citrus, apricot, peach, absolute goodness. Flavors were right on point, all of the fruit with a big bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel was slick and big yet this remained drinkable. I recall a lot of peach. This was almost too drinkable. Top notch.

Wow. This is amazing. Clearish Amber pour with white head. Massive foresty fresh clean green hops aroma and good bitterness. Great beer.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Growler… This beer rocks!… Clear amber/orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma is chock-full-of white pepper, tropical fruit and resin – a straight-up menagerie of hop madness. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. Leans heavily toward the bitter side of balance. Almost violently bitter, but very tasty. Big-time malts, but even bigger hops. Finishes fruity and ruthlessly bitter. This growler of world class beer was provided by Elliesbrown!

wavers1 (872) - Notown, California, USA - AUG 24, 2011
bottle courtesy of eclayton8, and let me start by saying this is an all around great iipa. pours a nice just slightly cloudy bright orange with a nice orange white head whioch is very creamy and leaves great lacing. terrific aroma, moderate bitterness in the nose, tons of fruity floral things going on, smells like candy, and also has a detectable bready malt profile to balance it out. the taste is terrific, the citra shines here, with all the other c’s contributing to make it a very multi dimensional and complex hop profile. terrific finish, drinks like a frickin pale ale, very smooth and short finish, terrific. overall an impressive and very nice ipa. its not the most bitter of the bunch, only maybe a 6 on bitterness, but the terrific bouquet of flavors makes up for it for my palate.

Growler at Maltzilla’s tasting. Pours hazy dark golden color with off white head. Citrus and grapefruit aroma. Bitter grapefruit rind flavor with very little maltiness. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Growler provided by Maltzilla. Aroma is full of hops, slight citrus and peaches. The malt wasn’t all that strong in this one, which is just fine by me. I’m not that keen on a big malty monster.
