Leighton (12968) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 3 - London. Pours clear gold with a foam white head. Big dank hop nose with lots of urine, mango. Medium sweet flavor with lightly sugary pale malts, some oily pine, papaya and mango, more pissy hops. Medium bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely resinous on the finish with lots of juicy hops, more pee. Sublime.

Just had my first one on draft at Bethany Blues in Lewes. Goes down so smooth, I prefer Dogfish 60 or 90, but wanted to try this one. I will get it again sometime, itís great.

Had this on draft in Norfolk, and itís super good. Massive just massive amounts of pine and citrus. Like drinking fresh grapefruit juice. As it warms up, the citrus turns into a candied fruit, tropical juice taste. Really surprised by this, Iím glad I tried it!

bkurtz (917) - PERU - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle - Pours a clear amber/orange with a fairly big, creamy head and some lacing. Aromas of pine, then citrus, mostly orange. Juicy beer with the aromas continuing through the taste, some sweetness ending with a bitter finish. Good IPA.

AWISLguy (1562) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Orangey pour with an off-white head leaving a lot of nice lace. Aroma has big juicy fruity hops, with a solid tangy pine component. Taste is of sweet fruits, tangy pine and some grapefruit, with a toffee backend. Medium bodied and a bit sticky. Finishes nicely bittersweet with a touch more bitter - very hoppy - and quite dry. A solid hoppy effort. Will be interested to see what the DIPA brings. 14.4

Pours clear copper color with off white head. Aromas of caramel malt, pine, and some grapefruit. Sweet malt flavor with some pine and citrus. Medium body with average carbonation. Too malty for an IPA for me.

Rock solid American IPA, definitely in the top tier of mid-Atlantic IPAís without question. Pours an unfiltered copper/amber with a rocky off-white head. Beautiful proper IPA aroma that actually jumps out at you: tropical fruit, pine, grapefruit and orange peel. The flavor matches the aroma notes along with a solid malt backbone and a tinge of caramel but thankfully not too much. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Great example of an American IPA. Put a fresh bottle of this beer up against other IPAís and youíll be surprised how much it will dominate other offerings in the hop vibrancy department. A definite go-to IPA.

CelticBrew (905) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Poured 12 oz bottle an amber color with a small, dense, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Aroma of hops, crystal malt, pine, citrus, light grapefruit, slight earth and wet field grass. Flavour of fresh bitter citrus and earthy pine needles round with just a touch a underlying toasted malt. Surprisingly good IPA beer. Discovered while visiting the In-Laws in Baltimore.
