tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle from The Local Pub, Halandri. Pours hazy with a creamy head. Some sediment adrift. Aroma: Strong, zesty, very appetizing. Some of the aromas that come to mind are of honey, flowers, mango and orange. Superb. Mouthfeel: Foamy texture and medium body. Taste: Delicious. Very bitter at first, then mellows down a bit to reveal some mild malt character underneath. A strong grapefruit zest, along with mango, peach, honey, herbs and nuts, maybe. A touch of alcohol warmth. Finish: Long lasting bitter aftertaste of citrus and pine. A splendid beer, really.

maxwelldeux (3069) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy orange-tan color with a fairly thick pillowy off-white head on it. I picked it up at a grocery store, so it may have sat there for a while (I can’t find a bottled date on it). Nose seems like the hops aren’t quite fresh any longer, though I can get some really nice floral and fruity hop notes to it once I swirl some. Taste is pleasantly bitter (though slightly past fresh) with a lot of carbonation on the palate. Very solid IPA.

GIJOE (472) - Monterey, California, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Lovely hazy orange brew with a thick white head. Nose USA touch musty with citrus notes. Taste is a tangled smorgasbord of hop flavors. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ansalon (946) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2014
Pours a cloudy peach with a large white head. Aroma is peach, grapefruit, lemongrass, grass, resin, some esters. Taste is peach, grapefruit, kiwi, gooseberry, some orange rinds. Aftertaste is nicely balanced with hop bitterness and tropical fruit. It doesn't make a fuss yet makes its mark all the same. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First had on tap at Pit Fire Pizza in Culver City. Massive off white head. Standard IPA aroma but really shines with its strong but balanced lemon flavor

Tsekouratos (109) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - FEB 1, 2014
650 ml bottle shared with Calm_Dreamer and Terry72 at The Local Pub, Athens Greece. Orange-amber color with a nice white head. Aromas of hops , citrus, pine, mango, grapefruit, orange, lemon and so many other hop characteristics. Taste was dank at first, but after 2-3 seconds, it kinda exploded in our mouth!! All these flavors mentioned, with a little caramel and bread backing up! Bitter and long lasting aftertaste. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Perfect!!!!

22oz bottle poured into nonic. Appearance is clear orange-brown with a two-finger off-white head that settles to a cap. Chunky rings of lace are left on the glass. Aroma is hop-forward: grapefruit, orange, tropical fruit, some herbal notes. The malts contribute bread and caramel sweetness, too. Taste is medium-high bitterness, with citrus peel, pine, and floral flavors. A light sweetness comes through with caramel and biscuit. Medium body, creamy and resinous texture, just a bit more carbonation than average, bitter finish.

Saeglopur (156) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle from Bierkompass.de. Orange slight hazy body, with a wonderful rocky, creamy, white head, that is very stable and leaves a lot of lacing. Gorgeous, smooth tropical fruit nose, with grapefruit, citrus, mango, passion fruit, tangerine, malt from the background, some grassy notes. Taste is with the same aromas, starting sweet, some malt in the middle and slowly merging into some bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium, oily, slightly creamy, with a lively carbonation and a smooth bitter/sweet citric finish. Delicious! This is the IPA style I like the most: end-to-end smooth, crisp, complex fruit profile and very refreshing, leaving you wanting more with every sip!
