mitchgt (65) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Cloudy copper pour with ample bubbly head collapsing 50% leaving attractive lacing. Big aroma, all grapefruit pine citris. Soapy smooth mouthfeel. Tasty. Banana. More bitter in the front than the end. Light maltiness. Like very much.

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle from Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden. Aroma is fruity and sweet, a thick sweetness from the hops. Colour is a hazy orange with a white medium thick foam. Taste is very hoppy on the onset and in the aftertaste with a nice sweetness from the malt in the midtones, this is a great beer, very enjoyable.

Hansen (6602) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2010
Dark orange and hazy. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Heavy hoppy aroma, grass, citrus, passion-fruit, faint sugar, honey notes too. Flavor is heavy bitter. Some sweetness too. More hops. Dry, creamy texture. Soft carbonation.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Perfect pour with a very hazy, rusty, copper body and a dense, yellow, frothy, full head which settles to a sturdy layer leaving drippy lace. The nose is nice and hoppy with pink grapefruit and mango, some dank, very resinous pine notes, lightly floral, and green hop notes. The flavor is nearly identical with all the same notes but resins and pink grapefruit being most prominent; a very subtle sweet biscuit note in there too but overshadowed by the nearly high resinous bitterness. The palate is moderately full, lively, lightly creamy, and velvety. The finish is long, drying a bit but still juicy with pink grapefruit, still very resinous, and a bit rustic. A very nice IIPA from an incredible brewer. A little too much of the resinous notes and the hops seemed so green, it was almost like sucking the lupulin out of the hops. I would not have thought this was a nearly 10% ABV, alcohol was well hidden. Overall, a very powerful example of the style which could have been amazing with just a few tweaks.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours a rustic amber body with a soft lightly creamy off white head, mild retention. Honey tones, bitter dry resinous hop tones. Light honey, blades of grass with a mild herbal note. Bold and sharp with a hoppy bitterness. A mild-modest warming. Okay.

Abio (1572) - Waasland, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2010
Orange-brown coloured. Nice head, sticks nice to the glass, but should hold a bit longer. Smell is citrus, oranges and hops. Taste is yeast, hoppy, citrus-fruits. Ok biterness, decent taste. Pretty good beer.

decaturstevo (5015) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Amber pour with off white head and lace. Resin/citrus and bread. Resiny, sweet caramel malt. Smooth carbonation from a medium bodied beer.

oOJUXEOo (285) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Bottle. This beer pours a nice copper orange color, cloudy, but clears up. The head was a clingy white. Aroma was citrusy, resin, earthy. This is heavy beer. Malt still shines through in this hoppy beer. Alcohol is not hidden. Good beer, but one was plenty at a sitting.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Muddy orange with a shrinking cream foam. Cacophonous hop aroma: flowers, peaches, tinned mandarins, rose-scented chalk, a big wring of dishcloth. Just the antidote to the fart-sodden banality of the last beer. Chalky and honeyed with a tropical mousse of hop; papaya, melon, passion fruit and rose backed with husky malt. Good one.
