Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 23, 2010
From a growler. Rating #70. The color was pretty light, maybe a medium gold with a nice white head. Lots of pine in the aroma a little citrus as well. Very smooth, but with a nice bite too it, more pine and just real nice too drink, real good stuff. (1190)

DYCSoccer17 (3388) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2010
5 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Graduate. Aroma is fantastic! Tons of citrus, orange, and pineapple hop fruitiness. I also get a little catty hempiness as well. Mildly sweet. So much good hop aroma in this. Mildly hazy golden colored body with some orange hues, too. Small off-white head with slight lacing. Starts a bit peppery and hoppy before some orange hop flavors take the baton in the middle. Scant malt sweetness, too. Finishes with bright citrus, grapefruit and piney hop flavors. Pretty dry. This beer is all about the hops, and they’re fantastic!

Lubiere (10613) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
A hazy golden IPA with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, floral hops and passio fruit, candied fruits, very nice. In mouth, a smooth DIPA with floral resinous hops, red grapefruits, balanced and lovely. On tap at Lord Hobo, April 4, 2010.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - APR 11, 2010
This beer is probably better than my score but I have trouble with this style of beer. This one is very well done. Not really over-the-top bitterness, probably a lot of late hopping as there was a TON of citrusy/catty hop aroma and flavor. I could not finish a 16 oz serving. Too much of a good thing perhaps.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2010
On tap at Lost Abbey and Toronado. This pours a hazy golden orange color topped by a small, foamy head that recedes quickly leaving small spots of lace behind. The aroma shows a very citrus hop forward profile with fresh orange and bitter grapefruit with a touch of pine as well. Soem cereal grain and toffee comprise the malt profile. The flavor is very fresh and crisp with the oranges and bitter grapefruit shining bright. There is just enough sweetness from the toffee malt to balance out the bitterness. The fresh hops are the main component in this one. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation with a clean, dry, and bitter finish. Really nice take on the west coat double ipa style. I hope they bottle this one.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2010
Growler, graciously donated to RBWG by Suzygreenburg. Pours a lightly hazy, medium golden-orange hue. A small, bubbly, off-white head crowns the surface, leaving minimal spotty lacing behind. The aroma shows an enticing, citrus-forward hop profile, dripping with juicy orange and grapefruit, hinting at a little lemongrass and showing the faintest possible touch of pine. The malt bill is based in clean cereal grain, with a light touch of toffee. Flavors are again very bright and hoppy, showing a bit more crisp than the nose, focusing on bitter grapefruit and orange peel. There’s a very faint toffee sweetness, but the malts mainly stay out of the way in this one. Medium in body and carbonation, the palate is clean, crisp, and semi-dry. Very, very good west coast style IPA.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2010
Growler. Pours an orange body with a white head. Citrus, and honey hop tones. A drying hop resinous body with a juicy initiation. Tangerine fruit tones, and bitter pine with a mild drying grapefruit finish. Nice.

decaturstevo (5303) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 6, 2010
Orange pour with watery head and lace. Aroma of resin/citrus. Sweet maltiness with a hard bitter. Medium bodied and thin with no carbonation.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 5, 2010
I had this on tap at Tustin Brewing Company. Hazy golden color, very dry & citric, very hoppy, I thought it was a bit one dimensional.

Cybercat (3649) - Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2010
Aroma is richly hoppy and has a strong evergreen component. It pours a hazy golden amber with a nice cream-yellow head. Richly hoppy flavor has an undertone of orange and lime. Mouthfeel is smooth, lively and tingly. Definitely worth hunting down!
