DocLock (9709) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 Pours dark straw with 2-finger fluffy off-white head. Nose is great, a medley of resiny hops, mango, tangerine, black pepper. Having been exposed to this hop during the Sly Fox varietal IPA endeavors, I was really lookinf forward to it here, and I was not disappointed. The flavor is rich, hoppy, resiny, with tangerine, pineapple, mango, and a fruity, hoppy, citric finish that makes me wish I had more. This one is fantastic, and if you gave the aroma score less than 9 then shame on you.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Pours a hazy orange with thick frothy beige head. Aroma of citrus, pine hops, pineapple, caramel malts, spice. Similar taste, great hops finish. Nice blend of the malts and pine hops here. My favorite of the mikkeller single hops beers. Thanks Butters for the taste test.

Butters (4038) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Shared during some monday night football with curly, scottyp, and barrios. Tasted in a side by side with the nugget, warrior, and cascade. By far my favorite of the lineup. All pour the same clear golden amber, but this had a massive frothy head and good lacing. Nose is tremendous pineapple sweetness with just a hint of caramel. Flavor is a little piney. Some spiciness from the hops. Very good

Cavie (4263) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Bottle courtesy of jkwalking05. Clear orange pour. Huge hop aroma. Smells like Calloways Nursery. Pine trees, earth. Taste is piney and earthy. Not as hoppy as the scent but still spicy.

from crackedkettle.com - hazy red-orange colour with a huge slightly beige foam; the nose is very hoppy with citric, peachy and creamy notes; full-bodied and oily, very bitter, long fruity and bitter hoppy, piney finish - refreshing and straightforward

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Bottle – Shared by ygtbsm94 . Thanks Brad! Hazy amber, light tan creamy head. Fresh grassy tropical fruit aromas warm to faint spruce and peach notes throughout. Full grassy fruity hop flavors are smooth and stable. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, drying bitter finish. If only this was in an affordable 6 pack…

12oz bottle from Colorado Liquor. Pours hazy orangish amber with 3 finger thick and fluffy white head. Aroma is wonderful citrus and tropical fruit, some sweetness and floral hops. Flavor is bitter hops, caramel sweetness, tropical fruit, and some light citrus. Bit of spice in there to. A bit more carbonation than the rest of the IPA’s in this series. Nicely craft ale for sure.

11.2 fl.oz. bottle@3 Små Rum, Göteborg. Big, fluffy near-white head. Cloudy, dark orangey-amber body. Delicious tropical fruit aroma; melon, sweet citrus, passion-fruit and apricot. Also a nice floral scent, and a whiff of mild spices. Taste has a strong fruity hoppiness, without being distinctly hop bitter. A fine, caramellish malt body in the background. Also some subtle spices, and a note of acidic fruits. Medium body strenght. Fruity hops lingers in the ending. A tasty fruitbomb!
