mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 500ml ($7.50): Pours a very pretty orange with an excellent, well-formed, white head. Aroma is floral and citrusy. It is up there with the best IPA aroma’s I have ever sniffed. While this beer is far from hop slaughter, the hops are pronounced and diverse in this beer. The bitterness is mostly around the middle, but they linger nicely for a bit. Body is really light. Maltiness is pretty light. The aroma is the high point of this beer, but everything else is commendable. Even the burps taste good.

Bottle served in snifter. Crystal clear light orange body with a nice head that stays surprisingly long. Intricate balance of piney and ctirusy notes in the nose, with a slight advantage to the tropical fruit. Light on the tongue, with strong pine coming forth. Malt kicks in about halfway through this memorable journey to smooth out the ride. A more bitter taste is left on the tongue, which is also begging for more.

500ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a slightly hazy orange color forming a huge white bubbled and soapy head. Good retention and tons of lacings left in the glass S: Strong notes of flowery, fruity and piny hops. Mango and passion fruit, mainly. Pale malts T: Intense hops bitterness. Very fruity, piny and citruses. In overall, a dry taste with strong notes of flowery hops. Despite the strong bitterness, its s very smooth beer. Very pleasant and drinkable M: Medium and smooth body. Good carbonation. Great hoppy and flowery aftertaste O: Excellent drinkability. An American classic [ BA Review @ 7/4/2013 ]

On tap at Lui Lui’s in Lebanon. This is pretty solid. Looks like a pale ale. Smells stronger - almost like a double IPA. Lots of citrusy notes. Taste is very very mild compared to the smell. I like it a lot though.

ModeEngage (152) - Lowell, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 12, 2014
http://imgur.com/6k1taSn - Tap at the source. Pours clear orange with a thin white head that lasts and laces. Smells of pine, biscuit, tropical citrus, and caramel. Drinks with a moderate hop bite and moderate lingering bitterness. Medium to full bodied. Tastes of pine, resin, bright citrus, and floral notes. Lively on the palate. Finishes with lingering floral notes. Balanced.

500ml bottle pours a hazy yellow Amber color with some frothy head. Think I got a little too much of the yeast in the pour. Very smooth hop bitterness that mellows.

Bottle dated 9/9. Pours a hazy tangerine with small white head. Aroma is lovely orange, mango, fresh dough, grassy and piney hops. Taste is super fruity lychee and mango with notes of ripe peach, orange peel, and lightly piney hops. Medium bitterness. Silky mouthfeel. Delicious.

On tap at Y-not, Chesapeake, VA. Hazy yellowish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of wet grass and fresh pine. Bitter hop presence of grapefruit and pine resins. Bitter but balanced finish. Very well done.

Huge tropical hops in this big boy. I could smell is right when we cracked this. The flavor has a nice malt backbone with all the ctrus pine and tropical hop flavors punching through. This is a fantastic brew.

500 ml bottle to half-pint glass. Bottled on 07/29/14. Looks good; a hazy apricot with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; rich pine and citrus with a medium-bodied bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. On the dryer side (which is nice). A good IPA that I’d love to try within the first two weeks of the bottling date.

Deep golden color out of the bottle with a foamy white head that left sheets of lace on the side of the glass. Fresh citrus and tropical fruit hop nose. This has a very smooth mouth feel and hides the claimed 7% abv very well. Bright orange zest and red grapefruit peel citrus hops with a bit of tropical fruit sweetness and a sharp pine that comes out in the finish. Very nicely integrated beer with an aggressive hop dominance. Really nice IPA.
