Zlotta (1325) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2015
On tap at Borefts 2015. Clear, golden yellow with a large, frothy, white head. Fruity-resiny aroma of mango, pine, tangerine and orange. Sweetish-resiny taste of mango, pine, honey, tangerine, orange. Medium long, rather bitter finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, flat. Very nice.

zoucrew102 (1203) - - SEP 24, 2015
Bomber, thanks Craig! Juicy pineapple aroma with lemon and grapefruit citrus hop notes as well as a little bit of earthy rye. Pours cloudy golden colored with a large, soapy white head with excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with nice pineapple hop flavors as well as lemon and grapefruit citrus hops as well. Finishes dry with a little bit of earthy rye and a bit of floral hop bitterness. Very nice!

not mind-blowing, but a nice soft aroma and flavor of fairly juicy floral and citrus-forward American hops.

commonmac (974) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Tap at the brewery with commonshawn, rosskyle, and wildcard. Beautiful tulip glass pour. One of the most attractive looking beers I?ve seen in awhile. Frothy white head. Lacing is impressive. Aroma is West Coast hops in full effect. Citrus is there too. Taste hits you initially with hops but gives way to a blast of syrupy sweetness that is welcomed. Bitterness is at the finish but it doesn?t overwhelm. Very excellent representation of a double IPA.

PrattBrat (30) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2015
Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a frothy white head. Strong hoppy aroma with some citrus and malts. Tastes of hops with just enough malt backing it up. A long bitter finish. Full body.

Poured from a bottle with Galbo. Pours a hazy yellow color, aroma of citrus. Very smooth taste with a balance of hops. Poured the remainder of the bottle about 30 minutes later, and the pour was more cloudy and thick. The taste changed to a more malty taste instead of floral and hoppy. The early taste was very good, probably a 4.0+, but the later was a 3.5- some bitter or toasted nuts along with some spice (the rye). A world-class IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
