bulldogops (1671) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Rating #1613 - 01.05.2015. Bottle from San Diego. Pours a rich golden, small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is grapefruity, cedarwood, pine, pastry dough. On the palate, similar citrus and pine zest, mild resin, mild pastry dough malt. Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced. Lots of toasted malt complexity and a great balance of grapefruity, pine hop notes. Superb.

29/XII/15 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: n/a, bottled: X/13/15 (2015-1818) Thanks to Tim DB for picking this one up for me in NYC!

Clear blond beer, fizzy aery off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. aroma: sweet caramel malts, sweet ripe mango, lychee, pineapple, bit sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter start, some citrus, piny, sweet caramel malts, some tropical fruits. Aftertaste: bit resinous, bit grassy, sweet malts still, fruity, quite a bit of banana, weird enough...

Poured into tulip from 12 oz bottle. Big aroma of fresh peach and orange marmalade. Taste is floral, citrus, light caramel, bracingly bitter with that perfect clean finish that begs for the next sip. My favorite IPA besides mine.

demannu (280) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Golden color with slight amber hue. Soapy white head, not much retention and minimal lacing. Very hoppy aroma, pine and floral. Flavorb is basic for aips but nicely done. Very drinkable and enjoyable ipa. A good choice for an everyday ipa.

1/21/16 Washington DC (16 oz draft pour into standard pint glass at The Laughing Man). Pale blonde, mild carbonation, nominal white quickly dissipating head with minimal lacing.Citrus and lemon and malt aroma. Citrus, malt and grassy sweet taste. Strong texture, nice going down.

gegwilson (2524) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle in the Trembling Madness, York. Slightly hazy amber with a thin off white head. Quite a mild citrus aroma. The taste is spicy with pineapple, mango and passionfruit over caramel. Quite high carbonation. Not quite as hoppy as I was expecting. Still good beer.

kingaugusta (156) - Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Pours clear amber with a frothy white head. Nose is fairly subdued for an IPA. Flavor favors the malt over the hops. Vastly inferior to its 90 minute brother.

rentonj7 (119) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Nice deep amber with dense two finger head. Citrus, pine, and a little funk on the nose. Light but complex taste of honey, toasted malts, floral hops, citrus, and pine. Light to medium mouthfeel with medium finish. Slowly builds in bitterness as it dries. Very nice - character of beer would make this a session beer (as described by DF), but a bit high in abv.
