February Houston Tasting. I think this is from kp, but I could be wrong...was pretty hammered at this point of the tasting. Hazy yellow pour with thin head. Hops, flowers and citrus on the nose....much the same on the flavor, with some decent bitterness on the finish. Easy to drink DIPA.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle, courtesy Tampa crew. Pale hazy yellow pour, thin white lacing, smallish head. Big on hops in the nose, very bitter, some herbal tropical notes. Thick oily hops in the flavor, with a dry graininess, some slight greasy salty meat, and some bready notes. Nice and full-bodied, very textured and unique.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Pours light golden with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of orange, wood, pine, and flowers. Taste is lightly resinous with notes of orange and resin, crackery malt. Mouthfeel is full bodied with lush carbonation and moderate resins.

puggy211 (711) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Pours a transparent golden-orange with a small soapy white head. The aroma was of pine nose with a little resin and a heavy dose of exoticism (mango, guava, grapefruit, and orange) from the heavenly hop side. The flavour was strong with an upfront pine bite, followed by subtle grapefruit and strong pineapple finish. The pineapple lends a sweeter brew as a result. The alcohol is very well hidden. Overall,, exceptional beer!

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Big thanks to JB175 for including this one as an extra! Pours an opaque light orange with a very slim head. Nose? Hops. That’s about all. Floral and citrus hops, with grapefruit, pineapple and apricot notes showing through. Big, velvety smooth flavor with just enough sweetness to rein in the outlandish amount of hops in here. This is really good stuff - nothing that really sets it apart, but a nearly flawless example of the style.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Great in all respects. One of the better IPA I’ve ever had because it has intense hops flavor without any excessive sweetness or or abrasive alchol edge. Not complex, just great with great balance.

AgentSteve (1614) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Pours a nice golden amber with a thin bubbly off white head. Nice floral and pineapple nose with a flavor to match. Dry and decently bitter finish.

Slightly hazy yellow pour with an orange tint. Thin fluffy white head. Delicious hoppy aroma with lots tropical fruit and citrus. Sweet initially with intense hop flavor. Fruit and citrus notes. Intense bitter pine finish. End is a bit harsh, but this is almost exactly how I like my IPAs.
