Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2012
In short: A tasty, bitter, refreshing and fruity pale IPA of superior quality
How: A few cans from Ernesto987, consumed fresh a few days after purchase, thanks a lot Ernesto
The look: Cloudy orange body topped by a medium white head with good retention
In long: Nose is fresh fruity hops with apricots being the dominant fruity esters backed by other citrusy fruits and notes of pine tree. Taste has crisp honeyed malts and a whole lot of fresh fruity/citrusy hops (oranges, apricots, grapefruits, mangos…) and light pine-tree. Bitterness is sharp and of medium intensity. Balance is slightly towards the bitter hops. Tasty and refreshing hop-fix, very good. I wonder what happened to Gandhi? The dude seemed nice, he made one great movie and then I never heard from him again.

16oz can split with the Madison crew while waiting for tickets to the GTMW. Hazy, strawlike yellow-gold. Thin white head. Nice grapefruit aroma, very fresh. Very clean as well, hop forward. Drinkable, pleasant. Well done!

radagast83 (5178) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Drank a few ounces of this from courtesy of one of my buddies. Poured a medium-golden color with a white head. Aroma was a touch of grapefruit and pine, which translates pretty well in the flavor as well - a pretty good hop-heavy brew.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Cloudy yellow, copper. White head vanishes but holds a film. Danky aroma. Dirty. musty flavor like the hold in a ship. Dry, mild bitter finish. Dream on a Tuesday.

GT2 (8830) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 17, 2011
355mL thanks to Dan Fromson. Pours a clear, deeper golden with small, white head. Sheety, complete lace. Nose is big alcohol, fruity melon, sugary strawberry, strawberry daiquiri. Taste is sweaty, melon rind heavy, big jackfruit, mangosteen, sugary strawberry. Walnut skin bitterness gets a bit too harsh.Thankfully not totally sticky and candy corn forward at this point still exhibiting tropical hop character.

12 oz. can, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma of rich piney and resinous hops, some floral notes and a nice balance of rich caramel malts. Flavour of rich piney and resinous hops, buttery hops, rich caramel malts, finishing buttery and bitter. Very solid IIPA.

Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick lasting ring. The glass is left coated with large rings and chunks of soapy lacing. Sweet citrus hop aroma with plenty of earthy notes and a subtle malt presence. There’s some grassy pine needle and dank hop oils but the tropical/citrus fruits are most prominent in the nose. Lots of mango, grapefruit and citrus rind along with subtle biscuit. Medium bodied with a complex, flavorful hop profile that is nicely balanced by a sweet malt backbone. Bitter and sweet notes play off of each other with hints of dry and bitter pine needle/grass countered by notes of grapefruit and orange. The dry bitterness lasts throughout, even when the sweeter notes come into play and linger into a nice dry finish that leaves me thirsty for me. The malt backbone adds sweetness with notes of caramel, toffee and biscuit without getting in the way of the hops. Really well balanced and very flavorful with an excellently masked ABV making it dangerously drinkable. I’m impressed and ISO more!
