Reid (1946) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2014
22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem OR $4.29 Pours a typical burnt orange IPA colour but with a great thick,tight,creamy off white head. Fruity/piney juicy hop aromas..pine,lemon zest,pink grapefruit and papaya..delicious. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma but with a nice light caramel malt backing which holds it together somewhat. Good medium bodied palate..with medium high carbonation,very drinkable. Good IPA..liked it.

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours clear, honey gold with a creamy, off-white head. The nose holds floral hops, dried citrus fruits, pine needles. Medium sweet flavor with fairly rich and lightly gooey citrus fruits, some grassy bitterness, moderate alcohol boom, dry pale malts. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with mild hop resins, baked pal malts, cedar wood, grass, pine needles, oily citrus, orange, some rind. Good IPA.

Aubrey (3452) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Tasty IPA. Snappy hoppiness. Chalky, crusty maltiness. Rind blends with a bold bitterness. Sharp notes of grapefruit and lemon. Assertive but not stark or overly harsh.

RW80 (802) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
33ml bottle shared. Appearance: Clear orange color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma: citrus, grapefruit, pine, but also quite some malty notes of caramel. and some cabage. Taste: Citrus and pine bitterness, light vegetable tones in the citrus finish. caramel and biscuit moderate sweetness. Medium body,average carbonation. Good looking IPA, (maybe it was hold hard to find a date of botteling or end users date) but we’ve seen much better European IPA’s.

heman (57) - Tychy, POLAND - DEC 20, 2014
Piana jest średnio-intensywna, biała, drobno-pęcherzykowa. Barwa jest piękna bursztynowa, piwo jest idealnie klarowne. Aromat jest bardzo bogaty. W pierwszej chwili uderzają w nas cytrusy w postaci grejpfrutów, cytryny i limonki, w drugiej kolejności pojawiają się owoce tropikalne i brzoskwinia. Tło stanowią lekkie aromaty trawiaste i bardzo subtelny biszkopt. W smaku od pierwszej chwili pojawia się niewysoka goryczka, przykrywana nutami słodowymi. Finisz to średnio-wysoka, mocno grejpfrutowa goryczka. Po ogrzaniu pojawiają się wyraźne posmaki tytoniowo-trawiaste. Każdy łyk pozostawia w ustach lekko ściągający i zalegający posmak gryzionego albedo grejpfruta.

luttonm (2436) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2014
22oz in Seattle. This is a fantastic beer. Rich gold-orange, foamy head. Tart, crisp hops on aroma that follow right through in to the body. The grapefruit is apparent and such a nice addition. Tart fruity body, sweet bitter, balanced and crisp. So drinkable and tasty. Also notable, this beer is a fantastic deal, in the $4 range here in Seattle. I’ll try to keep these in the fridge.

fkoolen (362) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2014
Light orange colour, white foamy head. Citrus hoppy nose and taste with lemons, grapefruit, orange, mandarins but pine too, good bitter punch, spicy yeasts, soft creamy malts: not your average IPA, quite complex, good bite. Lingering aftertaste, nicely balanced between bitter and citrus. Medium carbonation, good body, oily mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

malrubius (1860) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle from Joe’s. Clear gold with lasting head and lace. Pungent citrus grapefruit aroma with hints of crackery malts. Ttropical fruits and mild toasty malt sweetness with grapefruit rind bitter dry finish. Medium light body. Nicely attenuated. Medium carbo. Probabky wouldn’t have bought it if I had read that it had grapefruit in it. However , excellent. Delicious. If I didn’t know i would have thought it was just fresh fruity hops.

ACHops (759) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2014
On tap @ Chuck’s CD. Pours hazy pale golden with thin lacy white head. Aroma is sweet light caramel malt and big juicy fresh citrus hops. Grapefruit, orange, and lime jump out. Taste is similar: malt is pleasant but somewhat thin. Hops are juicy and citrusy, though kept in balance with big bitterness. Awesome IPA.
