MadDogMD (213) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle straight from Portland. Big aromas & flavors of citrusy, bitter, oily hops. Malt balance is there, but the hops really shine. Very fresh & bright tasting. Quite enjoyable.

malrubius (1706) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Can from Joe’s. Hazy goldwith small head and lace. Fresh orangy citrus aroma with a little grainy bready malt. Orangy mild honey crackery sweetness with fresh citrusy orange rind bitterness and and little lingering pine. Medium body nice carbo accentuates hops. Just your average excellent IPA. And just because it seems almost everybody can make an excellent IPA these days doesn’t mean that they’re still not excellent.

Salmoniform (648) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Golden hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is melon, grapefruit, pine, citrus oil, grassy. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a nice hop bitterness that borders astringent in the finish. Overall this is an ok IPA but has a metallic/astringency in the finish that isn’t overly appealing.

Dogbrick (8113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Sample at the DBLDP on 08/31/2014. Hazy golden color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, grapefruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of piney hops, citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Più che ottima ipa dall’aroma intenso di agrumi e un gusto esplosivo, fruttato e amaro che riempie la bocca e strega i sensi.

mathieuc (1280) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Pours a lightly hazy golden with a small white rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of fruited, resiny, artificial hops. Taste is pretty highly bitter, features perfumey fruity hops. It is bitter for the sake of bitterness and feels like hop extract overall. It feels pretty much like 7%, pretty rough. Body is medium, carbonation too. Overall this was a bit harsh and artificial, not something I would seek again.

osu97gp (649) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Pours a clear pale orange with a large white head. Aroma of huge grapefruit hops and fruit. Flavor of floral hops with caramel malts.

Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Light and semi dry pale malts, semi sweet. Medium spicy pine hops with trailing floral sweetness and mild citrus. Finishes light with a floral, bitter and spicy linger. Pretty drinkable but not top notch.

Oakes (12514) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Slight haze, light amber, chewy character, crystal malt, light hops are vague but chewy. I guess a little basic

slowrunner77 (1550) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Can - undated. Aroma and flavor tropical hops and a good dose of sweetish malt. Medium bitterness. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Probably past it’s prime, but not too shabby. Doesn’t stand out in a crowded field."

MarcoDL (2178) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2014
Very bitter beer, with a crispy taste of floral, grassy hops. Body is just good, lets the hops stand out. Good beer.
