Rastacouere (6130) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Crystal clear light amber pour topped by a slice of white. Not particularly intense, but still hop-forward nose in which a wide array of tropical fruits meets grapey, woodsy, strongly citrusy aromas for which you could enumerate on and on flavor descriptives. Impressively complex hop profil for a single hop IPA. Bright and acidic flavour profile where perhaps more crystal malts than I would like aim at maintaining the balance and certianly attenuate the bitterness perception, but handicap the aroma at the same time. Spicy, woodsy, sandy, fruity, citrusy bitterness is pleasant, leading to the next sip and would rhyme with outstanding drinkability were it not for the above average sweetness. Still, the straightforward flavour extraction is pleasant enough and the beer is globally very clean. It makes for a good quaffer on a hot summer day.

blipp (6114) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Big and bangin nelson sav hoppy fruity aroma with a good deal of citrus and lighter yeasty notes. Unfortunately the flavor comes across just a touch too harsh, and even a bit cat pissy, but still has a good dose of fruity hops and spicy yeast. Pretty good.

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
March 16, 2012 - on draught at Cole’s. Slightly hazy amber-gold with a decent creamy off-white head, nice lacing. Smells fantastic - catty, no sweetness, only a bit of alcohol - really smells like fresh cut marijuana buds - pungent and sticky (8+). Taste follows, but it is a bit sweet, gluten-y grain more than sticky ick - a bit more alcohol presence too, but the aroma kicks the flavour’s butt. Average body, decent carbonation, quite astringent and a long pungent catty finish - really grabs the palate.

drowland (6049) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2013
3/21/13. 22oz bottle thanks to bitbucket. Hazy orange pour with a small khaki head. Laid back malty aroma and flavor with citrus and earthy hops. Maybe a touch of age. Not bad

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012
In short: A clean, semi-sweet and very fruity golden IPA. Good.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase, bottle forwarded to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Clear golden body topped by a medium beige head leaving good lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is dominated by fruity hops that focus on tropical fruits such as mangos, pineapples but also peaches and other juicy fruits of the kind. Taste has all the same juicy fruit hops as in the aroma and they are all layered over a backbone of semi-sweet cookies. The resinous nature of the extra-fruity hops bring a sensation of fruit juice concentrate. Solid bitterness. Sweet at first, resinous fruity hops in the finish, overall well balanced. Another bomber that went down in record time… and the real downside of drinking so much beer every night is I have a lot less beer the day after.

Mora2000 (5705) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of pine and orange in it, as well as some sweetness from the biscuit malt. The flavor is more complex. I get a lot of mango and apricot notes at first, along with some biscuit malt. As I drink more I start to get some peach and other tropical fruit. The bitterness level is low but the hop flavor is very strong. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
