Dfalken (45) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - FEB 25, 2014
Very nice mango aroma. Great hop/malt balance. Not overly bitter and very drinkable for an imperial IPA. The alcohol is very well concealed.

Copper with a lasting white head. Resinous thick and smooth hoppy syrup. It’s delicious.

Grimmron (2) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013 does not count
A true IPA lots of flavour, good start with the right amount of carbonation. Finish is very good colour is great. I enjoyed this beer and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a true India Pale Ale with lots of flavour

neepsntatties (1164) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 14, 2012
On tap at the Laurelwood Public House. Colour... golden-orange with a thick off white head. Nose... quite piney with a grapefruit backup. Palate... this beer has a truly excellent balance between the piney hop character and the malt which may be one of the reasons that so many people like this beer. All the flavours of this beer (though simple in range) meld nicely from one end of the palate to the next without too much sweetness or too much dryness

phildorsey (154) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2011
1pint 6oz. btl. Pours golden blond and fizzy with little to no froth. Citrus notes from the aroma are very pleasent. The taste is fresh and long lasting to the palate; and the finish is lightly bitter with citrus flavors. I thought this beer met the mark and was very much represented; excellant beer.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Bottle shared by Dosbeerigos. Nice hoppy floral aroma with slight hints of citrus. Flavor was earthy and piney. Nice malt backing and well balanced.

pantanap (3350) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Laurelwood workhorse dipa. 22oz bottle shared at beer mongers... Grassy and citrus hop bent with an equally supporting pale malt backbone. Sense a touch of bitterness to boot... Flavors are somewhat of improvement with a bitter grassy emphasis. Citrus through the middle and finish. Somewhat lighter in body with adequate carbonation. 7/4/8/3/14

boFNjackson (4099) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Bottle... Poured golden/amber with an off-white head. Lots of piney, resinous spiced hops on the nose. Foamy palate, big hop bitterness with dirty resin like tones yet a decent malt balance to the whole thing.

brokensail (10607) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 23, 2011
A: The beer pours an amber/orange sort of color with a large white head. S: Big time citrus on the nose. Plenty of grapefruit and pine, even some other fruits like apricots, peaches, and tropical fruits. A minimal amount of malt character, perhaps a hint of biscuit. T: Lots of fruit notes with grapefruit, peach, and apricot. Plenty of pine which provides a rather robust bitterness that counteracts the touch of (malt) sweetness that exists. M: Medium in body and carbonation. O: This was pretty solid, but it wasn’t quite to the elite level of Double IPAs. I think I liked the regular Workhorse better.
