phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle, 22 oz. Pours orange, large white head. Aroma is pretty much west coast hops all over this bitch, tangerine, orange, pineapple, tropical fruits and a wee bit of maltiness. Taste has the same, very nice hop profile, all west coast, still some sweet maltiness to create a rather full bodied IPA. Nice.

Crushed at GABF ’10. Big hoppy brew. Right up my alley. Not completely overpowering, but pretty packed. Big citrus, grapefruit, and bitter hops. Awesome.

gunnar (5105) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Pours clear golden with a huge creamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, mango and some pine. Taste is strong bitter from those fruity hops, dry and smooth mouthfeel. Ends dry and bitter, with a lingering anesthetic feel to my palate, excellent.

ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Aroma is strong floral and citrus hops, grapefruit and a touch of pine, some malt in the background. Pours hazy and light golden, lots of floating particulate, thick off-white head with good retention. Flavor is hop-forward with citrus and tropical fruit notes dominating, mango and grapefruit with some pine sap resin. Decent light caramel/toasty malt backbone, but malt is pretty much cast aside by the hops. Medium body and carbonation, solid IPA.

The aroma is hop filled citrus scent. It’s a very lively batch, bubbling about like a fish tank. The appearance is a mildly roast amber, an translucent bronze with a thick egg white head that sits about like sea foam. On first taste I get the aroma of citrus hops, possibly cascade, followed by the bittering hops and citrus flavors of grapefruit lemon and malts. It has a strong bitter finish with lemon grass burps. The palate is great, tickling with lively fizz. Bitter and long lasting and thin on the texture. Overall great beer for 5 bucks.

Bomber from Binny’s Schaumburg. Pours hazy orange with golden edges with large white head. Aromas of grapefruit, orange, mangos, peaches, some caramel, and fair amounts of hops. Flavors of sweet malts, orange, grapefruit, caramel, and a shit load of bitter hops. I always complain about lack of bitterness in IIPA and IPA’s, but fuck man is this bitter. Some alcohol warmth in there as well. Still solid and enjoyable once palate adjusts.

Tmoney99 (10411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy herbal and citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.This is a good not standout beer.

Deep orange-amber color, small steady white head. Strong nose has citrus, pine needles and flowery notes. Medium to full-bodied. Pine needles, resin, tropical fruits. Spicey finish. Warming fruity alcohol. World class DIPA.

Tried on tap at The Monk. The nose was the best feature, lovely aroma of hops. Fairly murky looking straw body with a decent head. Expecting more bitterness to come through in the taste, grapefruit then orange. Solid IIPA which was a mouthful.
