Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Draft at Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear pale golden color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Sticky hop aroma, lots of pine and resin. The taste is very bitter pine and resin hops with some pale malts in there. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

mcberko (8544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, a little pine and some biscuity / crackery malts. Flavour brings out stale wood chips, some floral notes, a bit of pine, and more stale wood. Seems a bit off - as in the aforementioned stale wood quality. Still drinkable and solid, but something doesn’t quite work.

chinchill (2718) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 27, 2013
2013 reincarnation of Green Flash Surfs Up IPA served on tap at the Secret Stash Bash. Poured clear, light amber in color, and with a medium and fairly durable head. Had an attractive and complex hoppy aroma. Medium/high bitterness (IBU = 75) in this hoppy, West Coast style IPA that has limited amount of sweet malts. The hop mix included piney, herbal, citrus and grassy/weedy elements. Medium body with slightly high carbonation. O: a rather aggressive hop-lovers IPA.

czarinakat (3) - Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2013 does not count
I wasn’t able to determine much aroma from this, a small citrussy note and some grassyness.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear straw-amber with small white head that fades quickly and leaves a tiny amount of lace. On the nose, there are medium floral, fruity, piney hops with subtle caramel malts. The finish is moderate in length with floral hops and subtle spice. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent floral IPA but it feels like it is missing something. 2013-03-17
