agl108 (786) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Shared 22oz. bomber. Poured hazy amber with chunks of floaties. Sweet malts balanced well with notes of pine and citrus. Slightly spicy, funky finish. Medium bodied. The Nelson Sauvin hops seem a bit Tomahawk-esque.

deyholla (6639) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle thanks to Ben! Pours a clear amber orange with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of earthy pine hops with a bit of dankness and backing grapefruit and sweet bread. Flavor begins with grapefruit and pine that has a growing resinous note and a hint of a grain backbone.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Great amber-orange hue with a nice head and lingering lace. Green and earthy nose. Bold yet clean bitterness from start to finish. Grassy, leafy and floral. Also notes of citrus (grapefruit, lemon, tangerine), but they’re not as pronounced as they are in an IPA made with PNW hops (especially the "C" hops). Possibly even some mint. Mild malt flavors with elements of bread and crackers, with a very mild sweetness.

BK7 (734) - Turner, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2012
On tap at Venti’s South. Solid India Pale Ale. Good hoppy citrus and pine balanced with medium sweetness. Bitter resiny finish that lingers. Tasty.

drjay44 (2638) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2012
650 ml. bottle. Pours a lasting off white head, with extensive lacing, over a clear, with an occasional floater, amber (SRM 10) body.....nose is citrus, melon, light toffee/caramel, hints of pineapple...taste is citrus, melon, light peach, green grapes, toffee/caramel, finishing with a medium, lingering bitter, pine tinged, bite....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, carbonation adds a pleasant belch. This is obviously an IPA with the complex hops back bone and the lingering medium bitterness. It is different from many an IPA in that the Nelson Sauvin adds a complex fruitiness in both aroma and flavor, but still has the lingering cleansing bitterness. This is an interesting, successful, hop experiment from an adventuresome brewery. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

tcane7 (1664) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2012
22 oz bottle. Pours amber with light tan head that provides good lacing. The aroma is grass and citrus with strong sweet caramel malt. The flavor brings out more of the hops, apricot, citrus, and toffee.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Pours hazy copper with a dirty white head. I can’t really pinpoint any good descriptors in the nose, but its very hop forward. I do know that I’m not the biggest fan of the hop, but that doesn’t mean its bad. There’s enough malt to counteract what I don’t enjoy. This is a fine beer but there are plenty I’d rather drink.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 13, 2012
650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon, grapefruit and passionfruit with some caramel. Taste is grapefruit and lemon bitterness balanced nicely with a passionfruit and caramel malty sweetness. Meidum bodied with nice carbonation leaving a nice tickle on the tongue. This is a nicely done IPA that is highly recommended for a great tasting experience.

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Hazy copper coloured body with an orange glow and a thick, two centimetre tall off-white head - nice. Aroma of peaches, bright grapefruity hops and yes, the best smell of all, passionfruit. Medium-bodied; Strong herbal and slightly grapefruity hops at first gives way to a good malt backbone showing some depth and then a mild hop bitterness at the end. Aftertaste isn’t too complex with only a handful of light fruit flavours capturing anything more from the light herbal hop notes and the mild malt. Overall, a good IPA, but nothing more and nothing less - doesn’t really compare to some of the best IPAs, but its definitely drinkable. Whether or not its worth searching out for, is up to you, but I wouldn’t really look for this one at all if I knew better - there are far too many IPAs better than this one. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 09-June-2012 for US$7.25 sampled at home in Washington on 01-September-2012.
