Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Aroma of pine sap, resin and fresh grapefruit zest. Pours amber with a big frothy head. Taste is more subdued. Pine notes, sticky citrus, and a nice resin. Not too overbearing, just perfect. Nice number 100.

10/23/2013. 22 oz. bottle. Amber color with a thick off white head. Floral aromas with tropical fruit, pine. A hint of caramel, spicy hops and citrus. Very well balanced and the hoppy finish is just right. Awesome IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2013 After long last I get to try a bottle, and even better, one that’s less than two weeks old. There’s a nice malty backbone to this IPA and it’s very well rounded. Not too much sweetness, not too much bitterness, just the right amount of citrus. Leaves a bit of a bitter aftertaste however that quickly fades. not unexpected though.

Taster at the source. Pours yellow gold with a pure white lacy head. Aroma is grapefruit. Flavor follows nose with floral and grapefruit hop. Pale malt backbone. Bitter grapefruit peel finish.

TheLevi4000 (63) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2013
One of the most well balanced beers I have tasted. Hop bitterness is present but not overbearing, taste great, and the finish is smooth with out the after taste being overwhelmingly bitter like some IPA’s.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 Bottled 10/08/2013. Just about 4 days old. Clean golden body with a huge foamy white head that sticks around well. Nose is huge fresh pine, grapefruit, and more citrus. Tastes outstandingly balanced and smooth. All of the aromas find their way into the flavor, with a smooth yet crisp bitter finish with some fruity undertones. Great beer.

JBPortland (1027) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 12, 2013
From 10/11 notes. 500ml botle (9/10 batch) pours clear golden orange with almost 2 finger head. Leaves a nice fine layer of suds that never goes away. Nose is piney, lemon, orange zest, some subtle grapefruit notes, tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is round, carbonated, malty. Taste is bitter grassy, pine up front, fruity grapefruit, creamy orange notes on the end. Finish is fruity medium bitterness, balanced complexity. Lunch is a superbly balanced, expertly crafted IPA. Excellent.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottled September 10, 2013. HUGE thanks to Mark for delivering this long-time want of mine!

Pours semi-hazy orange amber with a two finger white head that settles to a small foamy cap but leaves some really nice drippy rings of lacing behind.

Aroma is grapefruit, pineapple, tropical fruits, piney, a little biscuit and caramel malt. Big citrus and tropical fruits dominate. Very good strength.

Flavor is bitter pine, grapefruit rind, tangerine, peach, some tropical fruits but not as much as in the nose, malt is a little more prevalent in the taste as well with some bready and caramel notes, very little sweetness, quite dry and bitter with a touch of alcohol on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, good carbonation.

Excellent IPA. The aroma is fantastic!
