bhensonb (10933) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is fruity and citrus. Med body. Flavor is fruity and suddenly that citrus that is almost like pine. Lots and lots of hop. It’s a bit sweet, but there’s enough hop to solve that. Extremely tasty.

brokensail (10785) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 14, 2013
On tap at Haven Gastropub. Light amber sort of color with a white head. The nose is incredibly sweet. Sugar, caramel, and some pineapple. Decent orange and grapefruit on the nose. Pine and some booze, too. The flavor is nicely citrusy, but despite the grapefruit and orange notes, just too much caramel and brown sugar. Some bitterness and alcohol on the finish. Not bad as a barleywine, but wasn’t what I was expecting from a Double IPA.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Tap at Salted Pig. Complete sheets of lace on a clear orange. Super sticky nose. Sweet IPA overall, but not cheesy and dusty. Butterscotch candy with pine needles. Heavy pine finish. Rich, mild nut and tannic dryness and harsh bitterness. Still drinkable.

Dogbrick (7959) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Clear pale amber color with a medium ivory white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Full-bodied with a resiny hops character and flavors of grapefruit and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering piney hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Ibrew2or3 (6846) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2014
22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a weak light tan head. The aroma offers up big resiny sticky smelling notes filled in by plenty of hop sweet citrusy and pine aromas and booze. The hops are largely pine like and bitter citrus trudging along in a pond of thick sticky maltiness. The taste is smooth and slick and sweet and resiny and syrupy sticky resiny hoppy stickiness, wow! There’s big bold pine and tangelo and pineapple and alcohol. Goodness. This is a sipper. It starts with modest citrus hop flavor and thick malts and then runs directly into booze, citrus hop and pine hop resiny bitterness and then sticky sweet malts. Git all messed up drinkin’ a 22 of this.

marcus (6436) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a very light floral aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor that quickly goes from sweet to very bitter.

22. Thanks c! Awesome treat. Pours a crystal clear pale amber with a sudsy white head. Big sweet grapefruit and oranges nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Darkly toasted caramel with dry bitter acetic pithy grapefruit and oranges on the mid palate. Long very dry finish.

On draft. Clear golden orange pour, with a white head. Lots of fresh juicy hops, grapefruit, pineapple, some mango, pine resin, sweet, notes of caramel, and a bit boozy. A little too sweet, not really bitter (a good thing), and nice hoppiness.
