BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 20, 2005
Lucky Baldwin’s IPA Festival 2005

Thick cloudy orangey hue. Intensely hoppy, herbal aroma, fresh leaf basil. Spicy, minty basil flavor, grapefruit, moderately yeasty and malty, some tropical fruit sweetness. Unique for sure.

Cloudy golden pour with a thin white head that is consisted of tight, tiny bubbles. Very aromatic grapefruit in the nose. Good flavor of grapefruit and wood. Creamy texture that leaves a dry mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Interesting.

FoolishMortal (987) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2005
Amber gold color with a medium sized foamy white head. Citrus, pine, and resin in the aroma. Resinous, citrusy hop bitterness balanced by a large sweet malt character. Simcoe earthy twinge in the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly heavy, high alcohol heat.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2005
On tap at Solana Beach. Pours dark gold to orange with a small white head. Citrusy hops in the aroma. Lots of body to balance the hops. Alcohol seemed more apparent than it shoud for an 8.5% brew. I also prefer the Hop15 to this one, but I wouldn’t turn this one down by any means.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2005
The Lure:
Pungent fruitiness of white grapes, grapefruit, watermelons and starfruit dallying. Coniferous wood, alcohol and brown sugar tallying.

The Festivities:
Citrusy hops and consequential dry bark bitterness roam jubilantly in a lean, drinkable mouthfeel. Alcohol warms and then burns, creating a ring of fire around the aforementioned hoppiness. Cleanly brewed as always at PPort Solana, but their Hop 15 is a much more interesting hop fix imho.

Transcendence:
A calculated dose can give few side-effects.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Brassy, golden-orange body with a tight, sudsy dusty-white head. Complex and pleasant hop aroma with notes of nectarine, oranges, pine, dry leaves, and cheese plus sweet honey malt underneath. Hoppy, light sweet flavor with distinct toasted butter/diacetyl, but not detracting. Very good hop delivery vehicle. Not your run-of-the-mill DIPA. Thanks to Erway for hauling a growler of this from Solana Beach.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Cask @ 05’ Pizza Port Real Ale Fest: Hazy bright orange, white head. Nose of citrusy bright cripy hops, very piney and greasy. Almost no body still but definately resinous and dry. I don’t know if it’s just me, but most of these SoCal hop monsters at this fest seem way over the top (for me).

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 23, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Light gold with a slight haze and a dense head. Lemon citrus aroma. Dense hops bitterness with a distinct tanginess. Lots of citrus, pine and a slight peach tea flavor. Full, creamy mouth feel--tongue coating bitterness with little to no maltiness to distract from this singular hops experience. Very crisp and refreshing with well-hidden alcohol.

jazz88 (2528) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Tap @ Bistro Double IPA Festival. A hazy golden color with an off-white head. The smoothness of this beer was able to cut through the bitter bite. Apricot, sweet fruits, and a nice toffee malt character.

TAR (2410) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Draft: Cloudy-pumpkin with some specks. Bubbles struggle to the surface to eventually form a tightly-woven ring. Potent hop nose of candied orange rind and glazed pinewood. Lush with soft, tight carbonation. Brashly textured with dryly-bitter herbal hops, which are beautifully rounded by a succulent dab of tangerine fruitiness. Sweet resins muffle the already-low acidity. Continually sharp underlay of shaved orange peel bitterness towers over the lightly-woody toasty pale malt notes. Raw sugarcane compounds the coarsely herbal texture. Clean, minty alcohol imparts an evergreen effect to the piney hop accents while accentuating the dryness before giving way to a crescendo of bitterly-herbal hops and pinewood with just enough orange-pith juiciness to balance the forceful hop impact. Wonderful stuff.
