mensch (259) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Yellow-orange, a bit hazy, nice lace on the side of the glass as the foam recedes. Inviting aromas, mostly citrus, some perfume/floral. Bracing bitterness up front, a hint of carmel malts, then a battering of bitter follows through. Lingering resins in the luxurious finish, like toffee covered in pine sap. Ten, even five, years ago, this would have been an incredible revelation, now it’s just an average DIPA. If there is an "average" DIPA.

Huge pungent hop nose on this one. I'm getting wild flowers, guava and grapefruit. Nice golden hue with sexy leg-like lacing. Flavor is citrusy flowery up front and then turns slightly bready. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (11824) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Sampled at GBBF 2013, London - Day 2. Pours clear gold with a modest, foamy white froth head. Heavy resinous hops in the nose with big mango, orange and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor with rich and juicy citrus, melon, mango, pine, pale malt sugars. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Well and resinous to finish with lightly dry citrus now, juicy character, sticky sugars. Rich and hefty but very solid. Good condition, too, which is key.
