Growler courtesy of Kermis. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is massive grassy hop, grapefruit citrus yeast. The flavour is light bitter sweet with a rich fruity yest fresh grass hop, light toothpaste palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. A real treat.

kermis (5957) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2014
Growler shared. Pours cloudy golden with a cream off white head. Aroma of strong citra and pineapple in the forefront, with orange peel, resinous hops, grapefruit and a light nice caramel malt hiding in there. Flavor is over light sweet and heavy bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Lovely stuff!

Orange pour, creamy white head. Nose is big pineapple, fresh water, grapefruit, minerals. Taste is big pineapple, so clean and fresh, minerals, floral hops. Palate is so crisp and clean, nice sticky body. The best IIPA I’ve had besides maybe Abner.

Quevillon (2576) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
750 ml fill bottle purchase by LadySusan at the brewery on August 21, 2014. Yellow cream, medium head. Green hoppy aroma, notes of grapefruit zest. Mineral grapefruit taste, dry hoppiness, nice bitterness. Better than Mambo #5, Five Alive and Channel #5 combine!

dramage (2) - Ghent, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 750 ml growler (Best consumed by AUG 30 2014) thanks to BoBoChamp! Pours cloudy orangeish with a white head. Aroma is very pleasant, mostly on grapefruit and orange but also some passion fruit, pine resin and it is a little dank as well. Flavour is quite the same. Tons of grapefruit, spruce and resin and some tropical character. Light grassiness. Finishes with quite some bitterness and noticeable hop oils. Overall the beer is very citrus-fruity. Body is medium. Silky mouthfeel. Very solid indeed!

phaleslu (7041) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
750 ml swing-top growler, best by 8/22/14, consumed on 8/18/14. Plenty of clearance. Pours a hazed pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits (lemon, lime, grapefruit, melon), grass, straw, husk, crackers. The flavor follows the same lines. So light and clean, dry, fresh - and refreshing. Man, this is lovely on the palate, even if the flavor profile is slightly restrained in comparison to the nose. Smooth, tasty, and drinks like a light, hoppy APA.

Johnsense (894) - - AUG 21, 2014
Hazy gold pour, 1 finger head. Big tropical frit aroma and flavours. Mango, grapefruit, pineapple. Smewhat dank. Crackery malt backbone. Medium body. Im doing it no justice whatsoever. One of the best double ipa ive ever had.

DrSilverworm (7653) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2014
750ml swing-top, thanks to phaleslu for sharing. Best consumed by 8/22/14. Hazy golden orange color. Totally hazy. Thin ring of white head. Leaves some kinda loose bits of lace. Awesome big zesty grassy grapefruit kind of lime. Flavor is an explosion of tropical flavors, pretty impressive. Not as bitter as most hop forward beers, the aroma of the hop shines, rather than this just being extremely bitter. Not as assertive, good balance to this, really impressive hop aroma. Grapefruit. So impressively clean. Just a mild plain crackery malt. Moderate bitter taste, but not bothersome at all. Like the opposite of astringent. Mild to moderate sweet. Medium-plus body, lighter than the ABV would suggest. Could be like a bigger bodied pale ale. Super smooth, lighter carbonation. Super easy drinking, refreshing, bright DIPA. Fantastic stuff. I usually raise an eyebrow at HF hype. But this one is bonafide outstanding.
