superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2012
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled 10/2/2012. Pours lightly hazy bright golden amber color with a very nice 2-3 finger fluffy white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, orange zest, grapefruit, lemon, citrus rind, grass, floral, herbal, and light piney spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great hop complexity and balance; very dank smelling. Taste of pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, and herbal spiciness. Fair amount of piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, citrus zest, floral, grass, citrus rind, pine, bread, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice hop flavor balance and complexity; nice malt/bitterness balance; hardly any cloying hop bitterness on the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a sticky, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an awesome wet hop IPA! Great dank hop complexity and balance; very smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

Nice cloudy orange color with big head. Aroma is fresh, citrus, grapefruit, floral, resinous. Taste is smooth and bitter. Nice bitterness. A little bit disappointing, though.

Fatehunter (1404) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy light straw body. The aroma is bright pine, a little dank lemon. The taste is a building dry bitterness beginning to end. Wonderful. The texture is crisp. Great taste.

Tonkun (916) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Tap. Amber pour with fluffy white head. Spring pine, grapefruit, floral, citrus, white spice. Medium body with good sharp carbonation. Slightly refreshingly grassy, apricot, citrus. Bitter but creamy finish. Nice

NikkTwist (1746) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Fuzzy gold pour with a large frothy white head. Several large swaths of lace. Strong resiny grassy citrus floral hops balanced with some medium blonde caramel malts. Green oranges. Apricot pits. Varnish. Pinecones. Oak tannins. Peppercorns. Fresh cut grass. The wet hops are gigantic here! Certainly good, but feels needlessly harsh.

Bottle. Super pungent. Very earthy and resinous. Extremely fresh tasting. Not subtle but a good one.

Very nice ipa. Aromas of orange zest, lemon and candy. Beige head, cloudy golden. Some hop resin in taste, citrus, caramel. High carbonation attenuates bitterness but very well balanced with alcohol.

ajnepple (2559) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2014
22 oz bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor into a pint glass. Orange hazy appearance with a big, lasting white head and sticky lacing. Aroma and flavor of fresh hops, citrus fruits, floral notes, pine, earth and toasted grains. Medium hop bitterness and light malty sweetness. Medium body with a smooth feel and a nice, balanced finish. Good.

BVery (6981) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Bomber from Binny’s in Bloomingdale, IL. Strange - I love west coast IPAs, and I love this brewery, and this is a very highly rated beer - figured this would be a lock for a winner for me. It is not. Aroma is floral and a little grassy. Grapefruit taste but kind of harsh, finishes quite bitter. This just isn’t hitting the right notes for me.
