Goodgrief (1762) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 14, 2014
On cask at Wilmington. Despite the name, I think this is more of a floral hop dominance. Smooth and frothy on cask. Bitterness still comes through in perfect balance with the biscuity malt. Well done.

ReggieDunlap (3005) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Pours a clear golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma is mild and refreshing...hints of grapefruit, herbs and just a bit of orange rind. Flavor follows suit...definite herbal notes and light spicy grapefruit. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a dry rindy/herbal finish. Very nice.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma is pure floral piney Citra hops. The taste is light bitter with a bit of a citrus balance.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Draft at IHP. Pours hazy dark straw toward orange with off-white head that laces well. Nose is that great Citra tropical citrus, mango, tangerine, black pepper. Tastes smooth, with a big hit of mango, tangerine, pineapple, and black peppery hops with a crisp well balanced finish.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 20, 2012
On tap at Iron Hill Newark. Pours a bright hazy golden yellow color with a one finger white head and light lacing. Great aroma of tropical fruits and a light malt undertone. Taste has lots of fruit forward hops, followed by a nice balance of malt through the middle, finishing with a light bitter dryness. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

GMCC2181 (1498) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Draft at Wilmington location. Nice pour, light orange in color..... small head that faded fast. Nice light orange and fruit notes. Taste is nice... not bitter but still has a nice hop presence. Fruity... light orange, mango. Body is on the lighter side but far from weak on unbalanced. Overall. Nice IPA

callmemickey (2469) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Deep yellow-orange body, clear with lively carbonation, moderate sized white head, streaky lacing. Nose is full of mango, pineapple, lemon and orange. Clean citric profile carries over to the flavor, but is muddled by a more noticeable malt profile than needed at the ABV. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness in the finish, appropriate carbonation.
