That1Guy (2192) - Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Bomber pours a bright orange with a frothy, sticky head. Definitely an accurate description on the label. This brew is quite juicy. Nice citrus aroma and flavor, balanced with a sweetness in the finish. A touch oxidized, but still solid.

pineypower (3050) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Pours out a mostly clear, attractive orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of citrus rind, bread, caramel and light cardboard. Taste is light citrus rind, bready caramel, light lingering alcohol. Would like to try a little fresher, had nice potential.

22 oz bomber shared by Pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured a hazy amber with an average to larger frothy super off white head. Aroma of honey and citrus rind, grainy, slight earth coming out, maybe a touch of dry molasses. Flavor of dry citrus rind, toast, and dry old hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a slightly creamy finish. This good but it seems to be a bit old.

Scopey (12245) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a bubbly white head. The nose is light sweet tropical fruit, hop sack and pine. The taste is sticky tropical fruit, pine, resin, straw, light spice, grass, hopsack and some residual sweetness, with a long bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Good flavour, but somewhat cloying. I think this would be much better with more carbonation to lift the flavour and therefore drinkability.

oh6gdx (25207) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Cask@GBBF2012. Ambery golden colour, small head. Aroma is fruity, floral, caramelly with some zesty, citrusy and quite peachy notes. Flavour is being quite similar in a nice balance. Hides the ABV very well!

Botte in Santa Fe.

I like the happy discoveries one makes when sampling new beers from new regions. Somehow the fun is enough in the exploration that a 90-th percentile gem makes up for slogging through a half-dozen beers in the lower half of the distribution.

This is the gem that has made worthwhile my otherwise disappointing exploratory efforts this week in Santa Fe. Itís not a world beater --- the Sculpin and the BigEye PA that I had last week in Santa Barbara are better --- but itís darn good and markedly better than the average new experiment on the Seattle grocery shelves. So Iím delighted, here in my hotel room, to marvel at the over-the-top (in a good way) candied grapefruit aroma of this beer. Iím enjoying the juicy tropical flavors, the well-rounded bitter finish, the laid back malts, the thinner-than-8% mouthfeel, and doggone it, the 22 oz are gone long before Iím ready to say farewell.

evergreen0199 (2975) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2012, Olympia, London. A golden/amber coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Rich hoppy,tropical fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, tropical fruit, slightly sweet and rich. Very nice indeed.

strongpieman (1648) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bomber. Cloudy yellow / gold brew with a white foamy head that clings. Grassy hop aroma, medium body with thickness that coats the mouth. A lasting finishn that is more soft than sharply bitter. A very good stronger IPA.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Nice impy IPA. Grassy-green hops. Lots of fruit as well. And some pine in the back. Soft malts offer caramel, bread dough and bread. White bread crust mostly. Very drinkable, especially for 8 percent. Enjoyed it.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Orange and hazy. Moderate head. Nose is rich with resinous, tropical fruit, ripe grapefruit, pineapple, and other fruit intensity. Even some soapy hop aromas mixed in. Flavor is some sweet bready and caramel malts with a semi sweet but bitter finish. Medium body. Rich texture with moderate carbonation on the back end. Like this one. Thanks trukpro!
