MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2011
My Bottom Line:
This India Pale Ale’s sustained earthy, resinous hop bitterness succeeds orange-y fruitiness, stemming from a plump caramelized malt base.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam coats the hazy copper.
-The mouthfeel is pleasantly pillowy; soft effervescence and healthy dextrins.
-A dash of citrus adds complexity in the finish.
-This doesn’t really stand out on the West Coast, but it’s still a fine pint of IPA.
-The malt structure could have been tighter and more talkative, for my tastes.

Tap @ Meconi’s. Hazy orange-gold pour with a short, persistant white head which leaves a heavy lace. Pleasant pine and citrus nose with malty notes. Solid, medium body and moderate carbonation with a hop-forward presentation over toasty sweet malts. Hops are predominantly spruce and citrus and there is a good amount of umami entering in the finish.

Jkripp (141) - Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Supergoose has a great hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and roasty malts. It is dark golden in color and appears unfiltered. It tastes very well hopped, no other substantial flavors appear in the taste. This is a standard IPA.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2010
GABF 2010. Pours a light bright amber with a sticky head. Aroma is pine, citrus, grass, grapefruit, orange peel with medium caramel malt- mostly fresh, fairly powerful hops. Flavor is some toasty caramel malts, then the grass, grapefruit, tacky sappy pine and citrus, orange then a strange cold coffee hint? Strange finish- herbal grassy bitterness on a slightly sharp caramel. Mostly fresh and pretty good- just finished a little strange.

This was a really super IPA. Great flavor balance and good hops. This was my last beer of the evening and the best.

hayduke (4629) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 21, 2010
From a 22 oz bottle out of my beer cellar (forgot where I purchased this) it poured a dark clear amber with a good sized off-white head and lots of lacing. The nose is caramel malts with lots of aromas from floral and citrus hops. Medium body and a someone lively alcoholic mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by the malts but the hops are there. The finish moves toward the citrus hops and there is an alcoholic burn in the final sips.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2010
22oz. Bottle: Thanks to SuzyGreenberg! Aroma of hops, pine, crystal malt, light grapefruit, hop oil, fresh hops, citrus, slight resin, slight tropical fruit, and a hint of caramel. Poured deep amber in color with a small to medium-sized, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of tiny, small, and some medium-sized particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, crystal malt, caramel, resin, slight tropical fruit, and some citrus. Medium body. Lightly oily, slick, then dry texture. Average carbonation.

IndianaRed (3675) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 17, 2010
On tap at Brewforia, Metidian, ID. Hazy orange/amber with a small but fine and lasting light tan head. Malty and slightly grassy hop aroma. Bitter hoppy flavor that noses out the malt backbone. Medium pallatte and a piney bitter trailer. A nice nearly double IPA from Hales.

A reddish amber ale with a thick frothy light moka head. In aroma,very grassy hops, quite good. In mouth, a smooth herbaceous I2PA, with restrained c-hops, nice herbal malts, warming alcohol, well balanced. On tap at Belmont Station, Sept. 4 2010.

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
On tap at TCBF, pours cloudy amber. Aroma of citrus, caramel, dried fruit and hops. Flavour follows similarly, with a nice piney hop bunch, with elements of dried fruits and caramel. Great one.
