GT2 (8432) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 14, 2010
Rating #100 for this one! Bomber courtesy of Travlr. Pours a very hazy yellow with a thin to medium off-white head that has okay retention and little to no lace. Aroma is a nice spicy and piney hop medley. Taste is massive grapefruit rind, really just an onslaught of overpowering hops.

Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Sample at Rogue Ales Public House. Pours a clear orange color with a thin foamy bone white head that dissipates steadily. Thin rings of lacing. Citrusy hops and caramel malt aroma. Medium body with flavors of hops, grapefruit and pine. Pale malt touches as well. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness. Pretty good overall.

3fourths (8023) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2008
22oz bottle pours light and cloudy orange with a 1/2 inch white head. Pungent fresh hop nose, full of citrus orange, lemon and pineapple, dry and grassy, somewhat dank, but very fresh and enticing. Bitterness is medium to heavy, malt body is mostly smooth and full, fresh fruity melon and oranges all around, wonderfully fruity and fresh, lightly drying in the finish. Very nice.

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Hazy orange pour with off-white head. Nose is heavy tropical fruity and resiny hops, fruit, honeydew, mango, caramel malt, spicy yeast. Rich and thick on the palate, with tons of hops, tropical fruit, and malt flavors intermingling perfectly. The finish is hoppy, assertive, and smooth. This is a top tier IPA, and I daresay it should be kicked into the IIPA category.

(Bottle at The Rover, Göteborg) On November 28, 2008. Cloudy orange color, small white head. Amercian hops scent, apricots, grape, citrus, pine, pineapple scent. Sweet first, then bitter, also apricots, taste. Medium mouthfeel, high bitterness.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2010
2010-06-28. Murky orange body, small white head, I am informed by the brewer (?) that it doesn’t normally look like that - this was the last of the keg apparently. Hoppy aroma, citrus, orange, modest leafy notes. 7+ Flavour is similar, with pleasant orange citrus hops, light leaf and resin touches. Decent amount of bitterness throughout. 7+ Average plus bodied palate. Not super complex but rather enjoyable. A pleasant surprise. On tap at Rogue Ale House, Astoria.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2009
My Bottom Line:
This perfumy India Pale Ale relies on its pine needle hoppiness and its potent resins to deliver a long-lasting, unbalanced, pleasant hoppy quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the sunny golden haze.
-The nose is almost unassuming compared to the soaring resinous bitterness.
-The hops add a citrusy touch as well.
-The body is rather lean and the carbonation effervescent, making for a drinkable mouthfeel.
-The malt character is not well defined, but this is a hoppy fix anyway, and a good one at that.

Bottle.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Pours a transparent bright golden with a pillowy white head and nice lacing. Aroma of fairly fresh, piny hops and a touch of sweet pale malt. Body starts fairly full and lightly sweet with a good resiny hop bitterness and flavor throughout before a dry, crisp, slightly peppery finish. A pretty nice IPA.

DuffMan (6739) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2010
Bottle, purchased from the bewery in Newport. It actually doesn’t look very nice! Cloudy, dirty yellow with tons of particles. Spicy citrus and resin hop character in nice balance with sweetish toffee malts. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel, solid bitter finish.

marcus (6493) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 15, 2008
This hazy yellow beer poured with a decent off-white head a a fresh floral aroma. The flavor is seriously bitter, but there is a tasty caramel malt base to balance it out. It’s a bit too piney for my taste, but hopheads will probably love it.
