phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared at Blake’s tasting the other night. Not sure who brought it- Vince? Anyway, thanks everyone! Pours a semi-clear golden color with a minimal white head. Aroma of herbal hops, sweet malts, sugar, vanilla, and melon fruits. Flavor of herbal and tropical fruit hop character, pale malts, cream, and some grass. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Not my favorite kind of DIPA but well done.

andyhwcinc (1663) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at home prior to playing a show at a dive bar. Appearance is a bright, very slightly cloudy gold with a rich white head, looks fantastic. Aroma is rich in citrus hops, also floral & pine notes, the smell is pretty potent and great. Taste is also fantastic, abundant citrus and orange peel notes, there is a faint caramel malt backing which is also somewhat bready, really great stuff.

tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with 2 fingers of fluffy off-white head and lacing. Aroma is fresh pineapple, mango, citrus, pine and sweet caramel malt. Full body, more caramel malt up front than I expected with a piney finish. Moderate bitterness.

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Fresh hops; earthy, dry, floral. Plenty of malt to balance. Good but not great. Best beer from Pipeworks so far, though that isn't exactly a compliment.

GT2 (9364) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 28, 2013
651mL shared at the RBWG Grand Tasting. Excited to finally try this. Clear, light golden pour. Medium white foam leaves webby sheets of lacing. Nose is sweet cantaloupe and ripe mango, sugary, tropical. Taste is dusty, papery, nutty, walnut bitterness. Sort of the typical East Coast IPA in body, though perhaps not super fresh. But there is no cheesecloth giveaway to staleness. Palate is dusty, chalky, papery. Liked the Galaxy Unicorn better.

Nice
