stantheman (644) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Shared bottle at eTap on Howe St in Vancouver. This is very highly tilted toward hops. Citrus hop flavors predominate, but there’s a malted aftertaste as well. Maybe the best hoppy IPA I’ve ever had!

Fresh sample on tap at Malone’s in Vancouver. A turgid and murky brew of a brownish orange cast. Big grapefruit flavour here, though no one’d ever mistake this for a grapefruit cooler. All beer here, friends. Still a great one!

From a bomber. Beautiful bright orange pour with a thick rocky white head. The aroma is gorgeous. Bright tropical fruit, grapefruit and some juicy fruit aroma over a lovely rich pale malt base. A touch of spice that rounds out the sweeter fruity notes on the back. Bright and zesty with a distinct whiff of peach as well. Awesome stuff.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Clear copperish amber with a thick foamy off-cream head. Sweet and sticky nose of grapefruit rind and oranges, with passion fruit and a touch of pine resin and caramel, with a slight biscuitiness. Flavor is citric and bitter with a bunch of orange rind, some slight grapefruitiness, floral bitterness, some sweet mango/tropical undertones, and a sweet caramalty body that still lets the hop bitterness shine through very well.

22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to mostly clear orange color. The aroma has citrus / floral notes to it. The taste has a light body with a nice bitter finish. Overall a good IPA.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Draft. Pours gold with a sticky white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, even some coconut (is that a fruit or nut? Or are all nuts actually fruit anyways?) Taste has more of the pine resin and orange rind bitterness than I expected from the nose. A really awesome beer.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Draught. Rather ordinary looking IPA. Wonderful floral aroma, with some forest-y tunes. Full bodied, well balanced the brewer allowed the malt its song. Lingering hop finish.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a small head. Slightly sweet with citrus/fruity hop aromas. Great fruity/citrus hop flavor with a hint of pine. A light caramel malt backbone and a hint of yeast. Very nice fruity but bitter finish.
