Cask gravity @ GBBF 2010. Pours a golden color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity hoppy grapefruit and pine needles aroma. Fruity and very hoppy bitter grapefruit flavor. Long fruity hoppy bitter finish with grapefruit in the aftertaste.

Aroma of fruit - strong, delicious, tropical. Taste is completely different. Hoppy bitter bite, overwhelming. A stark contrast between taste and smell. Aftertaste is powerful.

Big Thanks Dan for hooking me up with this growler! A- Body is a moderately pale amber hue that pours with a nice 2-3 finger foamy white head. Body is uniformly translucent and has the head has great retention with lots of lacing left all the way down the glass. S- Lots and lots of grapefruit, as well as a ton of exoctic tropical fruit with a scant barely detectable pale malt backbone. T- A decent amount of grapefruit hops upfront-but the highlight seems to be the exotic tropical fruit-mango, pineapple...etc...some caramel can be detected in the background initially as well. The finish is all full of citrus hop flavor and its equivilant bitterness-which lingers for quite awhile. M- Light to medium weight drinkable body and high tingly carbonation. D- This is a nice, fruity, drinkable, bitter IPA. The hop profile is not quite as bright or intense as I had imagined but its still very good. This is a very interesting unique IPA that is quite enjoyable. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 06-29-2010 02:20:02

Tap at the brewery. Drunk this as the brew cat sat next me curled up on the merch table. Huge tropical fruit nose. Mango is prevalent. Nice and quite stcky. Medium to full bodied. Lots of hops - really packed to the rafters. I think this is the right choice to replace the hop 15 with.

Extremely strong (in a good way) IIPA -- well hopped and well-balanced for a West Coast IPA. Very happy to see some malt undertone here as well as the citrus hop profile.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2010
On tap @ Capones. Tons of citrus hop notes in this dark golden beauty. A faint resinous aroma to match a lot of orange and somewhat tropical hints. Flavor is very bitter, but not in an unpleasant, abrasive way. Hops all over the place. There is a solid malt base, but this is definitely a hop-forward beer. Palate is smooth and lively. I enjoyed this a lot, but it’s not quite as good as their Hop 15.

Capones- Norristonw from their tap to a custom Capones growler my boss bought as a Christmas gift. Pours a beautiful golden light yellow hue with a light head. Aroma of tropical fruits splendid smell. Almost like fruity gum. Taste is out of this world. Sweet mango dominates this beer taste with a nice hoppy bitter finish. A light medium body. This beer is one of the best i’ve had the pleasures of consuming. Thanks Joe.
