ineedbeer (653) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2014
22oz bottle. Aroma is slightly sweet with moderate malt character of cracker and a hint of caramel. Moderate grapefruit and citrus with a medium light pine resin note. Hints of stone fruit. Pours a fairly cloudy, pale golden orange with a moderately sized, moderately thick slightly off white head with average retention. Moderate lacing and small legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with light cracker malt and lighter caramel notes. Moderate grapefruit with light citrus and stone fruit with hints of tropical fruit. Medium pine resin notes. Light alcohol spice in the finish with medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice IPA with a moderate hop charger. Nice dry, light malt character but the hops can be fruitier and more prevalent.

I love me a Hoppin’ Frog, and this IPA keeps my faith. Cloudy, bright thick yellow colored ale with golden hues, this looks serious. Seriously serious. The head is bubbly and mostly bright white, and the nose is simple. Piney and slightly resinous with a touch of sweet malts, there’s just enough malt to support the hops (and entertainingly enough to make the malts fun without being heavy or pilsey). It’s soft in the mouth, and the hops totally own this. The finish is great. I love the hops in this. It’s mellow and mature, but delicious in hop presence. The finish issues great bitterness and flavor without requiring total submission. As serious as this is, this is so mellow that it’s sessionable. It’s a deadly combination.

RRistow12 (229) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with white head that lasts a while. Nice lacing present. Citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Taste is a nice clean fruity bitterness throughout. Good malt backbone. Orange, lemon, grapefruit and some floral notes. Very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

glennmastrange (2217) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop aromas of roasted, caramel, pine and orange, light dough for the yeast, with date and dried cherry in the background. Head is small to average in size, frothy/fizzy, light tan with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is medium amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a carbonation between soft and lively. I think I can say that this brewery knows how to make their IPAs.

Bov (9270) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 1, 2014
from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark orange beer under a solid creamy beige foam; long lasting; nice lacework; very fruity hoppiness (apricot, peaches and melon); light yeasty and with hints of marzipan; very tasty and lively, full-bodied, subtle yet fair carbonation, fairly bitter and very dry; long fruity hoppy finish again with some flowery tones - great beer

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle shared by Chuck. I didn’t get the off components that he did. The beer was a murky straw colored body with a white head. Grassy and some fruity hops in the beer. There were spicy components too. The mouthfeel was medium-full bodied. I actually liked this beer.

rodenbach99 (3078) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Une belle bouteille partagée avec slovak. Un liquide orange avec une mousse mince. Un nez d’agrumes, d’alcool et de de sucre roux (semble vielle). Une bouche amère, forte mais agréable. Un classique de double IPA dans le registre sucré.
