PorterPounder (5831) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine & More - 12 oz bottle. Light golden pour, slight haze, bubbly thin white head. Pleasant light floral aroma with a hint of spruce. Flavor is pleasant with some grassy notes, a hint of light citrus bitterness, some light saffron-like spiciness and pear fruitiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Not overloaded with flavor, but pleasant.

shadey (1954) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a bright gold with a nice soapy head of heterogeneous bubbles. Some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is really nice, fruity, tart, hops. Flavors are sweet, bright, fresh, and clean. Great hop character that really surprised me. Very nice and something I could drink a lot of.

teorn88 (3452) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a hazy light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is grassy and piney, hoppy and lightly grainy. Taste has little yeasty pepper, caramel sweet, bitter grass an crispy lemon and earth. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok

HighlanderOne (1041) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle pour. Aroma of hops and pepper. Amber with lacing white head. Hops mostly floral with pine. Kinda light on hops for an American IPA. Also citrus, pepper and sweet malt. Good drinkability. Nice brew. Will enjoy this again on a warmer day.

Beerathon (1389) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2015
A refreshing IPA, but nothing outstanding. I would have liked a bit more of the wheat to come through and for being "white" it’s still pretty deep gold. Light citrus and grapefruit notes, and a bit of a metallic ting.

Golden colour. Aroma a bit soapy. Smooth. Has an interesting tang. I miss some hoppiness.

DocLock (8184) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle from Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours bright gold with 1-finger fizzy white head. Floral, bitter, piney nose, even got mild rauch in the nose. Tastes resiny, very hoppy, bitter, decent malt balance. Solid IPA.

dmac (4348) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2015
12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a clear light rusty bronze with an average sized foamy bright white head. Aroma of old citrus, slight bubblegum, belgian yeast, dry breads, dry toast. Medium body, slightly dry on the finish, average carbonation, nothing special. Aroma is slightly better but not enough to make any big difference on the overall, notes of older citrus, lime rind, bubblegum, Belgian yeast and some crumb from bread.

Bottle, aroma is citrus and pale malts, taste is similar with a light body and a dry light bitter finish, more like a session IPA
