RedSox2004 (1276) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Orange amber witha one-finger white head with minimal lace. Aromas of grapefruit and tangerine come on strong. Flavors is similar, with tropical fruit up front accompanie and balanced by a strong presence of roasted malt. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a dry and piney finish.

Saeglopur (343) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Clear, amber body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, peach, mango, some other fruits, caramel. Taste is refreshingly light bodied, with about the same aromas again and also some biscuit, grass and tea. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes smooth, medium bitter, with lemon zest, pine, grass and some fruits. Tasty! A refreshing, light bodied, but still fully aromatic IPA, with a nice balance of fruits, pine and malts.

Jhackmeister (13) - Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a shaker pint glass. Pour is dark orange/amber with thin, white head and virtually no lacing. Aromas are strong grapefruit and tangerine. Flavors of tropical fruit and medium roast malts. The finish is medium dry with piney bitterness. Overall a solid, if unremarkable IPA. I've had a few of their other IPAs and while I might not crave this one, it is one I would gladly buy a 6 pack of.

malrubius (1725) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle from Joe’s. Clear golden orange with lasting head and lace. Spicy citrus aroma with very slight hints of overripe oranges. Fruity orange mild sweetness with assertive orangy, grapefruit rind bitterness accentuated by aggressive internal carbo and clean dry finish. Medium light body. Another average excellent IPA. Yes, I like a good standard American IPA.

fiulijn (14751) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle from The Beer Junction, Seattle
Hazy light amber color. The aroma is nicely hoppy and fruity, fresh. It has a dry mouthfeel, some caramel flavor, although more was expected from the malts; strong bitterness, the hopping is moderately resiny and lightly fruity; the final is caramellish and a bit harsh.
A good IPA, not as refreshing as it could be.

Tall and thick white head sitting on top,with very good retention. Aroma of citrus, orange peel, cookie dough, grapefruit. Taste of citrus, mandarins, cookie dough, grassy hops, orange peel/zest, grapefruit. Very good! NIce bitter finish and even more bitterness on the aftertaste, with long duration. Medium thin body, a bit low on the carbonation, dry palate. Very good, high drinkability.

That1Guy (1939) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Part of a flight at the brewery with Dadbra. Clear golden pour with a white head. Definitely hop-forward. Get a lot of orange gatorade powder, almost smells artificial. Get a bit of acetaldehyde creeping through as the taster warms up. Still pretty decent.
