ben4321 (3784) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Shop Rite - Hoboken, 3/27/14

Aroma: It has a nice, fresh pine needle hop aroma, fruity and floral notes, and some spice
Appearance: It pours a murky orange color with a thin beige head and some streaky lacework
Flavor: The flavor is sweet early with a medium hop bitterness mid way through to the finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has a creamy feel, average-to-soft carbonation, and a mid-dry finish
Overall Impression: This one was a bit of a surprise. Especially the aroma. This is a really solid IPA. I especially like the way the pine needles play here.

Amber, slightly cloudy, ultra hoppy, a Little bitter, definitely a west coast beer

czar (4126) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2014
pours hazy yellow with a small yet creamy white cap showing some retention and lacing. danky mangoes, some other juicy tropical fruits, doughy honeyed pale maltiness, tingling booze, grassy pine needles - never too resinous, some bitter herbs and pepper. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, sticky, assertive yet balanced grassy-tropical-citrusy-piney finish. enjoyed!

From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Light hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

I smelled the hops off this IPA from the girl I eventually I tasted a sip from. Loads of citrus hops in the big way IPA trends gear towards these days. That being said its pretty much all good and I can’t taste what’s going on in the malt here. Medium bitter finish. Tap at capital Lounge.

Medium sized, rocky, off white head with good retention and lace. Hazy, copper hued brew. Nose is malty, lightly spicy. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Lightly sweet malt flavors. My son wrecked his car again, kinda like this beer a wreck.

Bottle bonus from a recent trade. Slight lemon flavor with some candi sugar sweetness and caramel. Grassy light finish.

AirForceHops (2972) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Draft. Amber color with light head. Aroma is very malty with traces of pine and plenty of caramel.

Flavor is malt heavy. Caramel, sweet bread, yeast and light pine resin in the finish. Perhaps big DIPA’s have distorted my palate because the hops here seem subdued and mild. The body and carbonation are mild with a syrupy, sticky texture. Not overly sweet but sweet never the less. A solid, average IPA. Could be used as a nice dinner brew.
