7/10/10. Bomber courtesy mkade in a killer Summer Secret Santa box! Pours a clear golden amber with a fluffy off-white head that laces quite a bit and stays around as a thick film. The aroma is huge fresh hop with pine, citrus, and a touch of cat pee. The flavor is a great balance between the fresh hop flavors from above and a nice malt backing. A very delicious and balanced brew.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Pours a dark golden copper with thick head. Citrus aroma dominates. Taste is a perfect balance of citrus and pine hops, crystal malts, and a bitterness that never gets too strong but lingers nicely. When fresh, this is as good as any IPA out there. Full of hop flavor, balanced, and ultimately drinkable.

GT2 (8435) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 9, 2010
355mL. Poured a clear deep red with a huge off-white head that left insane lacing. Aroma was strawberry cheesecake, 3C hops, high alpha acid semi-dank hops. Taste is bland, full of 3C hops, sweaty, old cheesecake hops. Simple palate. Lacking complexity.

12 oz. bottle, pours a slightly cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of wonderful pine hops, grass, citrus, nuts and grapefruit. Flavour of pine hops, grapefruit, light caramel malt and some sweetness - slightly thin finish. Excellent IPA.

Bottled. Thx Snojerk321. Golden colouerd. Unclear. Dense off white head. Aroma of sweetness, fruits, flowers, herbs and light pine. Sweetness, pine, herbs, flowers and light caramel in the flavour. Medium to full bodied. Smooth bitterness in the end. Very drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2011 Bottle. Pours caramel-golden with pillowing ivory head. Thick, sticky lacing. Nose of grapefruit, resin, nuts, malt, orange peel and spice. Taste of grapefruit, malt, pine, bread and caramel. Great mouthfeel. Nice malt backbone, but not overpowering. A nicely balanced IPA. The alcohol is well masked and the finish is very smooth. Rerating a very fresh bottle from one of the last shipments the east coast will see for a while. Goodbye UJ, I will miss you good friend.

bleeng (1523) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Tap at 1702 Tucson AZ. Dark gold and clear. Nose is piney hops. Taste is very hoppy but balanced out by the thick maltiness. A bit of alcohol present and this comes off as very drinkable. Well done-I wish I could get this one here in Tx.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Fairly tame but enjoyable aroma, light golden slightly cloudy appearance. Great classic IPA taste, excellent hoppy bitterness and long sweet finish. Bubbly on the palate which to me is not particularly enjoyable. Overall, this is a good beer that lands on the same level as the best of the best in the IPA category.
