Nickls (2003) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Tap, Leon’s Decatur, GA. Hazy marigold orange with a nice white head and lacing. Grapefruity, lemon-zest, light cat piss, and light pine all feature in the aroma. Lush grapefruit and passion fruits in the flavor, very bitter indeed with some dank and pine flavors. Meidum body with bubbly carbonation. Good brew.

On tap at Eagle Rock Brewery. Hazy golden, big creamy head. Intense grapefruity hoppiness. Exotic fruits in the finish. A great west Coast IPA.

phaleslu (7670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2011
22 oz. bottle shared by lushawn- thanks, Shawn! Seemed to go over well at the pre-DLD tasting in our hotel. Pours a hazy, dull orange color with a lot of sediment visible in the glass, especially for me, who got the last of it. Aroma of citrusy hops, tropical fruits, caramel malts, and sugar. The flaovr follows suit, with a nice, fresh, hoppy, fruity character. No alcohol to be found. Medium-bodied, with a fruit juciy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Dangerously easy to drink.

p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2011
22oz into tumbler. cold temp with lots of mist when cracking open the bottle. looks like hazy apricot with 1 finger white thick head. smells of strong bitter hops like all beautiful west coast DIPAs. taste: pretty smooth start with a citrusy hop flavor that ramps up the farther back it goes. lightly malted so the hops and dry hopped flavors can really overpower, but this is what i greatly enjoyed about most beers in this style such as ruination. lacing is gorgeous. other fruity and complex tastes are present. Alc is pretty well hidden at 8.5%. overall 9.5 of 10. exquisite beer. RIP Mongo.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2011
Draft at Haymarket. Pours a lightly hazed golden orange with a very sticky lace head. Nose is popping with citrus and tropical fruits with minimal malt character and clean yeast profile. On taste, it tends to go towards a more piney hop character. Some juicy citrus also does come through. Damn fine IIPA, just a bit one dimensional. Solid.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - APR 25, 2011
Bottle. Hazy orange body and a medium off white head. Some thick lacing. Aroma is big sweet tropical fruits, orange, a bit of grapefruit. Caramel notes show up as it warms. Flavor is standard DIPA but well done, with pine and grapefruit and a solid caramel sweetness. Substantial bitterness keeps the sweetness in check nicely. Medium-full and with a fairly dry and bitter finish. Very good.

Hazy amber color/ big white foam. Awesome pine sap, tropical fruit aromas. Medium bodied. Nice hoppy bitter grapefruit, pine sap flavors on a solid pale malt base.
