lightbias (250) - USA - APR 20, 2015
Overly ripe apricot pour, capped with white linen, dense and soft, thin atop the beer. A bright citrus aroma, tangerines and sharp grapefruit, is large in the air above the liquid, and punctuates my first sip. A spruce foundation invades the swallow, and combines with a sweet, juicy orange. The bite on the sides of my tongue is shallow and hot, a small burn on my gums heating my entire mouth and drying it to the need for another sip to quell the sere. Dank in experience and sticky in the corners of mouth as well as the sides of the glass, this is really enjoyable!

solidfunk (4911) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 20, 2015
Huge hop character. Tons of citrus, pine and orange peel. Pours orange amber with good head and lacing. Very bitter finish. Nice enough male backbone to keep things real as well. Tap at Churchkey.

tribblemaker (5) - Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2015 does not count
On draft at Ashley’s. About as perfect as an IPA can be. Super floral aroma, super dank hops flavour. Like fermented weed, only far better (as weed makes me nauseous, and this was just delicious).

GenDV138 (2776) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2015
4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey during the Lagunitas 420 Fiesta event. Clear golden orange with off-white head. Aromas of floral, onion/garlic, citrus. Tastes of citrus, floral, pine, tropical fruit, dank onion and garlic. Medium body with a dry finish. Well masked alcohol. Fantastic.

Goodgrief (1839) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 20, 2015
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Beautiful orange pour. Nice head. Aroma of tangerines and citrus. It is dank. Overripe fruit, both sweet and hoppy. A little funky. Rich and coating and smooth on the tongue. I don’t know. It could have been great, but something out me off a little.

bwa5879 (787) - Portage, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2015
Mostly clear copper pour with little white haze. Huge juicy dank citrus aroma, thick syrupy grapefruit. Soft carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel, effervescent finish. Bold hoppy flavor, juicy citrus, bitter zest and perhaps the malts. Perfect blend of juicy sweet and bitter hops, abv is deceptive.
