AndyW68 (811) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Hazy orange gold pour with a light white head. Aroma is sweet artificial pine. Taste is citrus and pine hippy. Mild bite at end. This would have rated much better just a few years ago, but competition is getting better.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle. More or less the standard pour -- golden, amber with a super firm, pillowy top of white foam. There’s little aroma, just a hint of pine. The beer drinks with a decided astringency, finishing with a super dry earthy, sap-based acidity. Sticks with you for a while. (#5205, 8/21/2013)

JohnnyJ (4080) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Sample from bomber. Orange pour, with a white head. Caramel malt, light citrus, light piney hops, bread, and cardboard. Not a very good IIPA, the bottle might be old.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Hazed light orange pour with a white head. Smells like old, stale hops. Fish food, cardboard, orange peel, and some body odor. Sweet caramel malt, too. The flavor is a bit better; more citrus forward. Some pine, caramel, and a bit of bitterness. Still somewhat off/oxidized/stale.

Placker (4) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2013 does not count
22 oz bottle from Total Wine Jacksonville. Fruity kind of citrus aroma. Poured a cloudy golden amber. A nice thick fluffy head caught me by surprise as it erupted from the from the glass. Malty bready flavor with some notes of lemon. The pine is there in the finish.

Dodgrblu (561) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
22 ounce bottle from Total Wine Sacramento, explosive on opening (bacterial?), sour aroma and flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Draft @ Diamond Knot. Clearish amber with a beige head. Aroma is full of hops, citrus, pine, floral and grass with a light malt scent. Flavor is firmly bitter throughout with the malt just there for balance. Medium body with a dry, bitter finish. Very nice IPA, super fresh, hoppy and dry.

Ferris (2006) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle - Grains, piney hops and some slight malts. Clear copper with a thick head. Piney and resinous, with a bit of grains and bitterness. Decent balance with a touch of alcohol heat.

crossovert (6343) - Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Copper pour, not a huge nose, some caramel, citrus. Flavor is bready malt, caramel, dank, flowery, medium to low bitterness with a cutting piney finish.

chronictonic (471) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2013
bottle - big, gelatinous, meringue like head. chunky almost. slightly soapy, piney aroma. deep burnt orange color. medium body flavor, a bit resiny but not that fresh hop flavor i’ve come to love. kinda tastes "typical" for an IPA these days - a bit run of the mill. not bad, but nothing really redeeming.
