jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 23, 2011
650 ml bottle. Bottles on 3/30/2011. Pours a hazy golden amber with a three finger white head that lasts forever and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. A bit of sediment even with a careful pour. The bottom of the bottle has about an inch of sludge. The aroma is big pine hops with some orange and a bit of grapefruit as well. There is also a strong breadiness present. The initial taste is relatively sweet with the pine coming through first. There is a also some citrus as well as the same breadiness present in the nose. A little bit of caramel as well. Finish has a pretty strong bitterness. Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.

maley1 (871) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2011
On tap. Golden amber pour with small white head. Aroma of pine, citrus and hops. Flavour of grapefuit, pine and bitter hop finish that was just right. Good beer.

BrooHa (120) - New York, USA - MAY 21, 2011
22oz from bevMo in SLO during my sister’s wedding weekend. As an East Coaster, it blew my mind to see all the Port Brewing, Lost Abbey, et al on the shelves! Pours a hazy amber. Creamy looking head. Sharp grapefruit pine and some toffee-like scent. Crisp and dry. Not as sweet as other IPAs or IIPAs. Finsishes dry with a slight funkiness. I like it but would probably go for others in this style.

madsberg (10602) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle. Golden coloured. Hazy. Creamy beige head. Aroma of pine, citrus, flowers, light caramel and spice. Flavour is very grapy and citric. Loads of pine, herbs and flowers. Some vague sweetness to counter the hoppiness. Medium to full bodied. Has a grapy and dry herbal bitterness in the end. Mongo must have been an awesome cat. This beer definately are.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy golden color with a one finger thick off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma and flavor is pungent pine and resin hops with a touch of lightly sweetened toasted malt in the finish. Medium body. Has a touch of astringency. Quite bitter. A good beer.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle… Cloudy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention eventually leaves spotty lacework behind. The aroma is a mélange of musky, grapefruity and mildly piney hops. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. Intense, acutely bitter flavor – it’s all about tannic citrus fruit rinds. Finishes bitter, a touch astringent and dry. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

Theis (14266) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle at home - shared with Mette. Cloudy amber/brown - white head. Nice fresh hoppy. Abricot. Fruity. Medium malty. Citrus. Resin. Nutty. Nice bitterness. Caramel. Piney. Zesty. Light exotic fruits. Very nice.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Pours a cloudy opaque orangey golden with a dense off-white head. Distinct peachy hop aroma - wauw, this is serious. Medium body, a light fruity sweetness quickly relieved by a heavy and astringent hop finish that really dries out my mouth. A little too brutal and one-dimensional. 120511

Dfonorow (1707) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle at Monks Cafe in Philadelphia. Pours clear golden/light orange with a normal sized bubbly white head. Aroma is of pine needles, pine resin, and a lot of citrus. Flavor is very bitter with a sweet citrus finish. Lingering bitterness, medium bodied.

jrallen34 (3494) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2011
nice golden peach with a big light tan head, great retention and lacing, looks awesome... great nose, lots of citrus and tropical notes, oranges, pineapple, some caramel malt, hops hidden nicely for dipa, smooth resin finish, smells crushable, I want... wow, where’d all those hops come from? lots of hops not overbearing but they present the whole sip, add some nice bitterness, very drinkable, a little sad most of the fruit has disappeared, a small complaint... a really solid in between dipa that I will have again
