Courtesy of sea bass. Very cool, I can take this off my “wants” list thanks buddy. Pours brilliant gold with off white head. The aroma is grapefruit hops, floral hops, black tea and some sweet maltiness. The taste begins with a brief pulse of sweet malts and black tea that quickly get run down by a tasty combination of grapefruit hops, orange peel and pineapple. The hops keep a strong showing all the way to the finish with a pleasing combination of late addition hop flavor and hop bitterness to go along with a mild level of malty sweetness.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle courtesy of sebletitje. Pours a generally clear amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of flowers, spice, honey and hints of malt. Flavor is sweet and floral with stronger malt notes and other flavors of spice, caramel, ripe fruit. Generally light to medium body with a crisp finish.

sebletitje (6592) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2009
courtesy of BA trade. Pours clear copper with off white head. Hoppy aroma with fresh notes of citrus Taste, hoppy, very sweet for an IPA with nice fruity palate (possible white raisins and other tropical fruits) and lasting sweet sugary mouthfeel. Amazing IPA, not overly bitter.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Bottle, courtesy someone. Copper brass pour, reddish, white head, thin lacing. Hoppy citrusy nose, some cottony dry elements. Some nice strong hops in the flavor, dry grainiy malts. Dry, crisp, not incredibly balanced but still very drinkable.

killjoy966 (677) - Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2009
A classic West Coast IPA. Similar to Racer 5 but smells even better, like fresh hops. Palate get hit fairly strong, but not overly bitter (though my girlfriend disagrees). Could probably use a little more carbonation, but I think that was because of a sloppy pour. I only wish I made IPAs like this.

jake65 (2593) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Tap @ Dublin Pub: Deep copper pour with a nice sandy head. Great lacing. Aroma of florals and citrus. Strong. Tastes more light in the floral hops and heavier in citrus. Some caramel and even a light wheaty element. Nice.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Amber with a thin white head. Aroma is a peach hoppiness, light pine, light caramel. Taste is a light fruity hoppiness, light alcohol, mild hoppiness. Very fruity.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Bomber. Pours lightly hazy copper with a lacy white head. Sweet grapefruit, mango, toffee, pineapple and grass aroma. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Sweet grapefruit, mango, nuts, peach taste. Nicely but not overly bitter finish. For whatever reason, this beer hits me just right. If I could brew an IPA like this, I might just stop buying IPAs.

LinusStick (2817) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2009
A nice if not ordinary IPA. Aroma was so so. Citrus and earthy hops. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was a little thin with piney hops dominating and just a hint of caramel malt. Medium carbonation makes this beer, good but not anything to write home about.
