Amber with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and bubblegum. Sweet malty and fruity flavour, especially tangerine. Medium bitter finish

popery (1677) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
The beer pours a rich golden shade of orange with a frothy, off-white head head. It’s quite cloudy and lacing clings to the glass walls. The aroma is quite hoppy, though it could be punched up a notch or two. The hops tend toward tangerines, pineapples, strawberries, pine and marijuana. There’s some sugary caramel underneath, but it’s not too strong. The malt sweetness picks up on the palate, and the beer is fairly sweet. The hops don’t quite reign things in enough, but they do their level best and the finish is fairly bitter. Unfortunately, the flavor also washes out a bit somehow towards the end. Mouthfeel starts full but thins a bit. Carbonation is relatively low. There’s a touch of booze, not bad nor good for an 8% abv beer. This is tasty stuff, but it doesn’t blow me away, and I’m a bit disappointed, given the high price tag.

brokensail (13656) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 14, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear, golden-orange with a finger of white head and a little bit of lacing. S: Starts off better than the Katz Pis. Actually has some citrus to it with some wood, herbal hops, and pine. There is a mild grapefruit note to go along with the intense sweetness of caramel and toffee. T: Overall, the flavor of this beer is quite sweet. Toffee, caramel, and brown sugar really dominate the flavor. There is a bit of herbal and woody hops with a light touch of citrus. M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: Not horrible, but just way too sweet without anywhere near enough hop character.

Matts_Property (830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2011
Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a cloudy amber/yellow with a thick foamy white head, and lots of visible sediment. Aroma of citrus fruits such as grapefruit, orange peel, some light caramel malt, dough, spices. Flavour of citrus hops, lots of grapefruit, pine, orange peel, dough, coriander, spice, some very lightly roasted flavours in there too. Beautifully bitter, and dry, lightly balanced with the caramel. Leaves a lasting aftertaste. However, palate seems a little thin after a few mouthfuls.

mcberko (9732) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2011
500mL bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy orangey amber with a big white head - tons of sediment floating about. Very doughy, resinous hops on the nose, with some tropical fruits and yeast. Flavour is also very doughy, and quite spicy, with orange peel and maybe some coriander - the spicy hops transforms into an astringent bitterness, which lingers on the aftertaste. Enjoyable, but too spicy and doughy for it to be anything exceptional.

50cl bottle. Medium off-white head, muddy amber body, small amount of sediment. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine, some grapefruit, light lemon. Taste is moderately sweet, sharply bitter -- pine, grapefruit, some lemon. Medium-full body, some resin.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Thanks beerlando. A little past its prime, even though we just got it here. Stale hops dominate. A little cloying.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2011
Keg at BrewDog Edinburgh. Hazy dark amber, thick white head. Big cascade nose, some tropical fruit & orange. Sweet juicy fruit palate, massive aggressive lemon bitter finish. Very tasty though.

sunevdj (3500) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2011
Københavnske Øldage 2011. Pours a hazy light brown with a small off-white head. Light sweetness and quite bitter. Dominated by the sprucy hops aromas. Malty aromas of hay. Light notes of yeast and alcohol. Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Long bitter finish with some yeast.

bottle. a cloudy honey gold beer with a large, creamy, off-white head. nose is sprucy hops with a big earthy malt backbone. drinks juicy and bitter with a modestly carbonated palate and the abv is hidden well. flavor is drenched with alpha acid nectar and wet earth beneath a pine tree in winter. great 2ipa!..but it really took a bite out of my wallet.
