JoeyBeerBelly (34) - New York, USA - APR 17, 2012
Growler filled at Whole Foods - Jericho, NY - consumed same day. Tropical fruit aromas make you want to taste this beer in a hurry. Clear in the glass the head is white but short lived leaving some thin lacing on the top of the glass. OMG - beers like this don’t come from the east coast but I’m sure glad I can get it when I can get it up in here.

neongolden (1151) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
Sample from a generous friend’s bottle. Pours an unexceptional-looking pale copper with a thin white head that promptly disappeared. Aroma is very strong, passion fruit and grapefruit dominate with a good helping of pine and some faint sweet malt lurking in there. On the palate this is again hops-forward, juicy tropical fruit balanced with lightly sweet malts and moderate pine bitterness. Not too bracingly bitter on the finish so the fruit continues throughout. Mouthfeel is fairly light and slick with faint carbonation and little hint of the alcohol even as it warms. Very flavourful, well-balanced and drinkable IPA!

Bottle from Binnys....pours a beautiful hazy orange...thin head....but it’s the nose that grabs you first...and the strong grapefruity taste....this one is FULL of hops....but not as bitter as you might expect...this one is definitely ’up’ to its rep...very tasty.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours translucent copper with two fingers of sticky white head and active carbonation. Aroma is full of pine and a bit of citrus. Taste is pretty bitter with some malt backbone but definitely dominated by the hops. The Palate is medium and the finish is dry.

MaBeer1972 (1757) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2012
A highly floral aroma with this clear golden brew. It looks nothing like the glass on the label. Lots of citrus grapefruit notes. Slightly overly sweet for me to be truly top notch. Still, pretty stellar nonetheless. Very smooth drinking and enjoyable.
