Pine and citrus aroma. Big pine taste with grapefruit bitterness lasts a long time.

bubbleflubber (1933) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Pours orange-amber into the glass, with a spotty eggshell head that reduces to trace lacing. Not sure which batch this is, but it’s on tap at Dirty Jack’s in Asheville as a guest rotation. The nose has tons of orange candies and grapefruit, floral notes and pine needles. Wonderfully balances citrus, malt and hop contingencies. In fact, in the mouth, it does a gorgeous job at integrating everything here. Grapefruit, just enough malt to keep a drier IIPA interesting, and a nice dry-hop lingering peppered finish, with just a touch of alcohol to close the pull. A little oily on the palate, this is substantial and a great brew. Reminiscent of a standard IPA more than a double, honestly. But it’s a great offering, so it really doesn’t matter.

DialSquare (3248) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bomber from Andersons in Sylvania. Orange pour with a frothy, sturdy inch or so off-white head. Aroma is soft grassy and herbal hops. Tastes are toasty malts, sweet caramel and pine hops - floral and juicy orange. On the maltier side. Well done.

RedSox2004 (1403) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Pours a hazy orange amber with a thick ceamy off white head, nice retention and terrific lace. Aromas of caramel and pine, with mint, citrus, and grass in the background. Flavors are similar, with emphasis on the caramel malt seetness and and resinous pine. Medium body and carbonation, slightly oily mouthfeel and a pleasant piney hops finish.

Ringnes (3) - Elk River, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2012 does not count
Pours a deep golden hue with a two inch head that holds the glass quite well. The taste is well balanced and provides a nice mix of hops and malt. This is easily quaffable and very refreshing. I believe batch #37 is the best one yet.

Sampled at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Gold/yellow pour, white head. Citrus and pine hops on the aroma and taste.

On tap at Cloverleaf. Pours a golden orange color with a white foam head. Caramel forward taste with a nice hop hit. Tasty.

dfearnley (1161) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Interesting nitro pour into a pint glass. A cloudy amber pour with a 1/2 cm long lasting off white head. Big grapefruit aromatic notes with an underlying sweetness. Nitro pour makes this a very creamy and smooth IPA. There's a great malt/hop balance with this beer. It starts off sweet and hoppy, but the end is piney as well. A great IPA.

nuplastikk (4935) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2012
22oz bottle split with Anndiesel, procured on her East Coast jaunt. Unfiltered thick orange-tan, steady off-white head. Resiny, grassy, herbal hop aroma, Hop forward, but a big malt body underlying. Fuggles/EKG..maybe some Cascade if I had to guess, they come off pretty big and resinous. A pretty solid IPA, somewhere between regular and Imperial. Quality offering, well done.

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Large white head, massive nose with an evident bitterness. Hazy dark yellow in color. I don’t know if this is as much citrus as it is juniper like, but definitely oppy. Really nice bitterness as well as an equal balanced malt
