Tap at Hamilton’s. Clear yellow amber with a creamy small off-white head, lasting. Huge tangerine and candy orange slices in the flavor, some lilac notes coming up more in the finish, which was dry with bitterness at 7. I also get a tinge of anise. Weird. Aroma follows suit once it finally warmed. Light body with light to mod carbonation. Good. Interesting.

Zymurgeist2 (1529) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 22, 2013
On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Citrus and sweet summer wheat aroma. Clear deep-gold, orange with an ivory head that collars. Taste is orange, citrus and slight grass. Moderate low bitterness with a semi-dry finish. Slightly grassy stay as the remnant of the flavor.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Tap at 38 Degrees. Clear amber pour with great lacing. Mild buttery nose, Alpine like, with tangerine and 5-Alive fake citrus. Taste is biscuit, sharp lemon peel, metallic penny bite. Huh. Big, grapefruit bitterness complete. Plastic, thin, very metallic. Not so great.

OldGrowth (3058) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - FEB 6, 2013
10oz pour at Tylers Apex. Good aroma, sweet. Citrusy. Orange, lemon, pineapple. Just a tad hazed brownish orange. Little to no head or lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, Bittersweet finish. Tasty. Aroma best part. Has a tad dulling finish.

Kinz (3625) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Beer 27 Asheville trip, on tap at Thirsty Monk. A really rare one from Green Flash, nice find. Light orange appearance, faintly hazy. Aroma and flavor were lightly citric hop. Bordering on an APA as opposed to an IPA. Has the typical West Coast bias away from malt backbone. Not bad though.

hayduke (4292) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
This was on draft at Green Flash night at THE LOCAL BEER BAR in Eureka, CA., Came clear orange in the glass with a white head. The nose is mostly tangerine and other tropical fruits and some citrus. Medium body and exceptionally smooth in the mouth. The favor is really rich and well defined with a whole lot of tangerine, grapefruit, orange, pine, and apricots. Finish is long, dry and bitter. A really great West Coast IPA.

crossovert (10313) - Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Huge aroma on this one. Fresh hop pellets, citrus, pine, dank. Flavor is huge melon on the first sip and mellows into a tropical/citrus/melon bomb. Bitterness is low but it creeps up as it warms. Nice light color and appearance. Great beer.
