gunnar (6592) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle from The Drink Store, Dublin. Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit and sweet malts, marmelade and lemon. Taste is crisp moderate fruity hops all the way, underneath is a rather sweet malty body, almost too sweet for my likings.

I poured it from the bottle. It pours a cloudy copper color with a decent head and lacing. The aroma was a little skunky with hints of floral hops and wheat. The taste was hoppy with some bread, spice, and mild citrus hints. This was pretty good.

ARH (857) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is a sweet, thick caramel candy with background notes of wheat, and citrus (leaning more sugary marmalade). It pours clear and oily with a gold hue and a white, dense soap head that leaves a light, messy lace and has a moderate messy retention. The taste is a medium high sweet with a medium bitter supporting note. The texture is smooth and oily with a soft foam carbonation and a medium body. The flavor profile is primarily caramel with a bitter citrus and wheat touch. It finishes with a clove and bittersweet citrus zest that leaves a mostly clean and lightly astringent aftertaste with mellow remnants of clove and a mild citrus with a slight cloying caramel sugar and a late bread note.

pkbites (724) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle. Strong grapefruit aroma and flavor. Hops are overpowering, contrary to what some have said here. This is OK but the strong bitterness lowers the rating. Don’t get me wrong: I like bitter beer. Just not so bitter that everything else is blocked out.

stravale (2517) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle from O’Brien’s, Athlone [140815]
Light blonde, slight haze, frothy fluffy white head, some lacing
Aroma of sweet citrus, canned grapefruit, some tropical fruits, dab of mango, sweet juicy fruits, mandarin orange, good nose
Taste of sweet fruits, sweet fruity pale malts, some piney hops, soft tropical fruits, good flavour, but getting some alcohol
Palate - Medium cab and body, quite oily, fairly sweet, fairly noticeable alcohol. Finish of fairly bitter zest hop, again a touch of booze
Overall - Nice beer, good fruits, maybe the hops have diminished a bit exposing the alcohol, but this is far better than the over malty IPA

hman43 (628) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2015
It pours golden and clear with a full white head. It has citrus aroma and spruce. It has citrus flavors with floral, every hoppy and a quality bitter tap on the palate.

12 FL OZ ($12 6pack) pretty good Ale for daily drinking. nothing major but a good brew to drink. a few will get you drunk. I found if i drank these early on in the day I was sleepy so take that into account.

ibrubeer (206) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Draft. Nice citrusy aroma. Bold golden color, clear, with white head and good lacing. Nice citrusy flavor, good bitterness but not overpowering. Full bodied, with nice carbonation. A great IPA.
