Bottle from Shaw’s. Packaged on 6/30/15. Smells like skunky Pine-Sol. Pours a hazy pale orange with a decent head. Grassy taste that lingers on the middle back of my tongue. I went from a sour to this, probably a poor decision.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Bottle into a snifter. 3.5 A: Moderately hazed medium orange color with granular particles in suspension. Two fingers of creamy white head. Retention is about average and a finger ring of lacing is left. 3.75 S: Rich maltiness with plenty of peachy fruitiness. Floral, resiny, and citrusy hops. Caramel malts to round it out. 4.0 T: Hops per above with peachy, orange, and pineapple citrus. Again strong neutral maltiness with caramel notes and light toffee. 4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth. 4.25 D: Good mix of hops and malts. Great beer overall. ★ 623 characters DavoleBomb, Dec 18, 2015

Bouteille bue dans un sports bar de Boston. Une robe dorée avec mousse blanche. Un nez bien agréable de houblon résineux et agrumé. Une bouche de forte amertume avec des saveurs de houblons et de malt légèrement caramélisé.

Poured a golden yellow color with aromas of citrus, dankness, light cat pass and some light bitterness. Flavors are hops and citrus with malt and light bitterness, solid and enjoyable.

jsporrer (714) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy deep amber with a thin white ring and a lot of residue suspended in the body. Sweet citrus and light pine aroma. Light syrupy texture. Juicy citrus bomb with a variety of fruit flavors. Medium bitterness and a slightly dry finish. Interesting but not my favorite.

nimbleprop (7492) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 26, 2016
Surprised I had never rated this, but I recently had a killer batch at City Tap House in DC. 16oz pint pours a lightly hazy gold with some lacing, white head. Nose was a knock out, guava and mango, malt, grass, tangerine, light pine, light soap. Everything is well blended and inviting. Flavor hits with the fruit sweetness, guava, mango, light melon, orange, tangerine, some starfruit, grass, light soap. Dry finish and scary drinkable at 7.5%. A classic.

tekstr1der (373) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 23, 2016
On tap at Atrium Grille and Bar at the Embassy Suites in Syracuse - This is one beautiful IPA. Pours slightly hazy light golden with a lasting, clingy-as-all-get-out finger of white foam that laces every sip to the bottom. Aroma is citrus all the way, with just a bit of tropical fruit (mango?) to take it into one of the top beers I’ve smelled. Flavor is similar, with citrus blast dominating up front, a nice malt backbone mid-sip, and just slightly dry on the finish with some lingering grapefruit. Very good stuff

Bottle via Secret Santa 2015, thank you. Pours a thick honey color with a finger of creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet and citrus filled, some caramel malt, and a little dry floral hops. Tastes bitter, heavy in the dry dirty floral hop department. Light citrus sweetness, but barely noticeable. This is all about hops flavor. Potent.
