alafito (334) - tijuana, - JUL 13, 2008
Starts off with a harsh hop bite, then eases off to a milder IIPA. With a one sided feel to it. If what you want is a hop pellet with liittle else this is it. For me it lacked the malt balance and a little more flavor complexity. It does finish with a nice tropical fruitiness and a bit on the sweet side.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2009
Draft at Solana Beach. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hops, grass, grapefruit, and pine needles, and so is the flavor, leading to a dry grassy and rather bitter finish.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Draft... RBSG... Lightly hazed golden ale with an orange tint and a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. Piney, grapefruity aroma also offers malty notes of toffee and caramel. Full-bodied and chewy with spiky carbonation. Leans on the bitter side of balance. A wealth of malty caramel and toffee sweetness is outdone by oodles of grapefruit pith and evergreen bitterness. Lengthy, bittersweet finish with a dash of salt.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2008
On draft at O’Brien’s. Appearance is a murky dull orange hue, minimal off-white head, moderate lacing. Smell is sweet hops [pine/citrus], hints of candy bubblegum, grassy and floral tones. Taste is big pine-grassy hops with a dominating alcohol presence initially, sweet fruits and bread malts soon enter, finishes dry and bitter. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, oily thick texture coats the tongue and mouth, prickly carbonation. Drinkability is moderate, very strong and hoppy DIPA that is in the ’hop bomb’ range, the stiff alcohol presence impairs extensive drinking.

bb (6860) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Draft. lightly hazy amber beer with an off-white head. Big grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit/summer fruit flavor with caramel backing. Medium body. Big hop flavor, but bitterness could use a little boost. Lingering summer fruit/grapefruit and some caramel.

yespr (32243) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2008
From tap at Solana Beach. Pours slight cloudy orange with a lacing white head. Aroma is fruity hops of grapefruit but also a bit spiced. Solid spiced and hoppy flavour with a nicely balanced caramel malt base. Dense flavourful brew yet also smooth. Smooth and nice finish with bitterness and dry fruity flavours. Lovely.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 2, 2008
On Tap at PP. Made my mouth water as I walked to the table. I could smell the fruity/hoppy aroma over the pizza. Great color. Big mouthfull of flavor, but didn’t have the sharp bite at the back of the flavor. Could drink more than two pints.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Tap @ Solana. Poured a hazed amber with an off-white head. Nice big hop forward aroma. Big pine and grapefruit. Huge but smooth pine and grapefruit flavor. The malt is hidden. Long hop finish with a mild-moderate bitterness. Nice warmth. This is what an IIPA should be.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Tap @ Pizza Port, Solana Beach. Pours a hazy gold with a small white to off-white head. Aroma is pine hops up front, with citrus and dark fruit notes detectable as well. Flavor is slightly sweet up front, with fruity notes and citrus hops dominating the beer’s finish. Beer remains smooth and drinkable throughout, making this hop monster a rather nice experience.

On tap@Pizza Port Solana Beach: Hazy golden color with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, citrusy and pine.

Taster from Greg and Yiga. Pours a rusty gold color with a very hoppy, piney and grapefruit laden nose. Flavor is full of fruit esters, alongside of a very durable caramel backing. Great mouthfeel and wonderful piney finish and residual tounge blast~
