Fatehunter (2124) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Poured into a tulip glass. Hazing golden color, almost transparent, with minimal head. Amazing smell. Complex. All sorts of citrus: lemon, grapefruit and orange. A muted honey. It is blended perfectly. No doubt an IPA. Solid bitterness up front, melts away to a mild malt sweetness, quickly followed by lemon bitter. Pretty crisp, still retains a soft texture though. Moderate carbonation. The smell is the star of the show, good tasting but nothing special to look at.

Bottle picked up by a buddy somewhere. Poured a clear golden yellow color with a small off-white head. Aroma was light tropical fruit notes, some light citrus, juicy hops. Flavor was about the same - lots of citrus, tropical fruit character. Pretty tasty.

onceblind (6741) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Brilliant clear golden with a thin white cap. The aroma bursts with leafy and citrusy hops and a little earthy ple malt. Crisp and quaffable flavor full of bready pale malt and a big orange/grapefruit rind and leafy summer bright hops. Lingering earthy and leafy bitterness after the finish. Quote earthy and citrus pithy.

Pours a slightly cloudy/hazy bright yellow color with white head. Light fruits, floral notes, citrus, and some pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with light fruit and piney resinous tones. Nice summer IPA.

thegreenrooster (3893) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a full on assault of hoppy orange peel bitterness. Flavor is a big citrus and bitter hop with a lot of tangerine and other various citrus type hops. No malt to get in the way of the hops other than leaving a very dry chalkiness that just cleanses the palate for the next sip. This is like chewing on a just ripe tangerine.

short lasting white head... the brew is slightly hazed lite golden. Great punch of citrus hops that outweigh but don’t blow out some nice pale maltiness. Not quite bitter enough for a big PNW IPA, but the hops mid palate more than make up for it... Again, some pale malts help keep things in perspective. Good body and carbonation.. finish reminds me of tangerine juice without the sweetness.... I guess maybe just tangerine zest.
