22 oz bottle via Hagen. Pours a clear copper with a huge off white head. Nose is strong with notes of toffee and mango. Taste is sweet iced tea, toffee, biscuits, pineapple, mango and some earthy piny hops. Body is full, this is a bit syrupy. Carbonation is medium. Pretty tasty but more a barleywine than an IIPA as it is very malt-driven.

willisread (1088) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear orange amber with a small white head. Lots of honey, marmalade, peach and grapefruit on the nose with some biscuit. Taste is a little sweet and boozy but with some good bitterness on the finish. Solid, but I think I prefer the regular version.

Larkin (9) - Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2015 does not count
Purchased from Gordon’s in Greeley, Colorado. Golden/amber in color, decent head. Very hop forward, malt is not to heavy but offers good balance mid palate, finish is very clean, sweet with notes of citrus. Among my favorites, in terms of hop forward Pale Ales; so much so I would be happy to see Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ replaced by Extra year round. So good.

Tap@gallows. Glden. Malty caramelly, piney, light perfumy floral nose. Med bodied, well bittered, nice clean green berry piney finish. Really nice. Lots of malty caramel sweet, good bitters though too. Flavourful, good.

Draught at CBM. Rich caramel malt base nicely balanced with tropical hops, orange marmalade, peach nectar, pineapple, guava, some boozy notes, dry hoppy finish. Great stuff, solid and smooth iipa, please don’t change this recipe ;)

Bulk_Carrier (2865) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - SEP 26, 2015
This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving some messy semi-thick lacing. The smell started off with sweet grapefruit pulp that rides over a sly sweet wheat base and ends up allowing sweet lemon to blend nicely. The taste was mainly sweet with low bitterness of lemon rind trying to make a playful balance, yet just graces it all underneath. There’s a sweet lemon to sly wheat (semi-sweet). On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing the sweet wheat to make an effort to come forward. Overall, this was a pretty good DIPA that I could have again.

elbernays (950) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 25, 2015
Bottle from McHughs. Pours clear amber with lasting froth white head. Excellent clarity. Pine, peach, citrus nose, slightly alcohol, caramel, marmalade on nose. Flavour is sweet caramel, treacle, syrup malt halted by a rounded lingering bitterness. Dry fruity citrus finish. Slick mouthfeel slightly warming on way down. Excellent balance and great beer.

Andrew196 (1133) - Katy, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Damn near clear golden pour over an off white head, nicely laced. Aroma very piney, with citrus, perhaps tropical fruits up in there. Similar taste on the front end with a nice hop bite paired with mildly roasted grain...got pleasantly sweeter with warmth with that tropical twist from earlier. Came together very well for me.

Bottle. Taste is thick piney hops with lots of bittersweet citrus and other fruit. A decent offering but I prefer it without the extra ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
