Pounder courtesy of jc1762, thanks Jon! Tulip. Hazy dark gold with moderate fluffy white head. A: fresh citrus and pine hops, very juicy, hint of caramel malt. T: awesome zesty citrus and pine hops, lite caramel malt. Perfect balance. Outstanding.

Draft sample. The beer is a hazy yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma has vanilla, citrus, and oranges. Creamy citrus notes throughout. Soft bitterness. Moderate to bigger body and soft carbonation.

1 PT aka 473ml can (canned 7/21/2016), thanks Giles & VT crew. - Pours a hazy yellow-orange syrup with charming thick white cap. Thick sweet maracuya, canned pineapple and lime jam pierced by obvious abv fusels and dank pelletised hop particles in aroma - exotic citrics broken down into that dried peach & lemon ice tea granulate. This might be an effect of this can being close to 3months old...that fermenting pineapple sweetness. - Great balance of honey malt sweetness, yeasty haze and massive citrus-resinous marmelade in flavour, on a thick syrupy mouthfeel on the sweet nectar side of IPAs. Obvious abv fusels permeate the thick sweet lemon rind hop soup almost as in a tripel, only to strangely subside and retract into the jammy body as it warms up...Lingering floral-bitter and hop-citric sweet finish, retronasal those pellet hops again. Nevertheless, I can imagine this being absolutely on-point and dangerously poundable for a DIPA when fresher or near source.

jcr (2576) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2016
Can. Deep golden body with a frothy white head. Big aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, mango, overripe orange, toasted grain, note of caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. It’s great that the bitterness doesn’t get in the way of the fruit tastes — mango, lemon, grapefruit, light pine. At 8%, it’s on the low end of imperial, but it pulls together lots of flavors. On the sweet side, but why not with all the juicy hop flavor?

Thanks to Tom10101 for this one! Can. Aroma is of hops, tropical fruits, and pine. Some flower notes. Taste features a smooth, crispy bitterness. This is definitely one of the great IPA I have tasted.

Can. Cloudy gold with a foamy, off white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of grapefruit, mango, peach, pine, biscuit, lemon zest. Flavor is grapefruit, peach, lemon, pine, and biscuit. Light plus bodied, smooth with a dry end.

raufsouza (11) - Brasília, BRAZIL - OCT 6, 2016
Excelente cerveja. Coloração alaranjada, não muito turva. Bela carbonatação, gerando uma espuma branca e de média duração. Equilíbrio é a palavra: base maltada e lupulagem muito acertivas, trazendo um leve dulçor e notas de tangeria, abacaxi, pêssego. Único problema dessa cerveja é que não se acha dela no Brasil.

ajnepple (5204) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2016
On tap at Hops & Pie. Clear yellow appearance with a white head. Fresh aroma of zesty, citrus and light tropical hops. Similar flavor, adding medium to heavy bitterness and a mild hop resin taste that lingers through to a heavy bitter finish. Medium body. Nice.

Tall can gift from Jc1762. Another wonderful beer. Hazy amber gold bold body with big head. Nose is floral of mangos, pineapple, peach. Taste is lots of hops with really nice, deep taste of fruits. Punchy finish with clean floral notes to the end. Very very nice.

olio (9368) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2016
473 ml can @ Timo A. Canned 16.09.2016.
Pours slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is crisp hoppy, piney, pineapple, citrus, orange and subtle passion fruit. Flavor is resinous hoppy, sweet fruity with pineapple, orange, mandarin, maybe some mango, subtle malt bitterness, lingering juicy finish. Extremely pleasant, very fresh and crisp, no bad words.
