Frothmeister (621) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2015
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy rose hued amber with a beige head. Smells amazing. Fruity candy notes up front, floral notes, pink bubblegum, and light resinous hops. As for taste, resinous notes, an almost chamomile taste, lychee, caramel malt notes, light soapy notes, and peach (none of which are overwhelming) that leads into a dozen more subtle hop notes. Not too sweet, not too bitter, and WAY too easy drinking for 8%. This is one of the best IPA’s I’ve had in a while. SO recommended.

MMJL (188) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Pierwszym wrażeniem jest… łapanie piwa, które tak wręcz emanuje amerykańską wolnością, że próbuje nam uciec z butelki ;) Z butelki zapach jest słodki – owocowy, landrynkowy. W kolorze piwo jest bursztynowe, zauważalnie mętne. Piana bardzo wysoka, lekko beżowa, niezbyt drobna, szybko się dziurawi choć lepi szkło. Za drugim nalaniem ładniejsza. W aromacie ze szkła dominuje mandarynka, arbuz, landrynka. Dosyć wyraźna jest też ziołowość, trawiastość. W całości aromat jest bardzo złożony i intrygujący. W smaku raczej słodkie, owocowe. Przeważają pomarańcze, pestki mandarynki, albedo cytrusów, twarde cukierki. Goryczka niebanalna, ziołowo-owocowa. Nieco trawiasta, taniniczna. Nie zdołała całkowicie zdominować piwa, ale jest wyraźna. Dobrze balansuje się z resztą utrzymując się dosyć długo. W odczuciu lekko ściągające, dosyć pełne, lekko wysycone. Całość bardzo dobrze skomponowana, złożona, intrygująca, wciągająca.

22oz from a Portland convenience store. Amber gold, white head. Complex, big, balanced hop aroma. Nice balance in body between many hops and grains. Green and fresh. Hop wax, smooth and sweet. Pleasantly surprised.

callmemickey (3422) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Dark, lightly hazy, golden-orange body, medium sized off-white head, soapy lacing. Pine, resin, florals, sticky citrus, light biscuit, and cracker. Medium bodied with moderate to lively carbonation, assertive bitterness in the finish, light sweetness throughout.

Derek881 (1037) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Poured from a 650 mL bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a somewhat hazy and cloudy deep straw-amber color with a very large, foamy, and bubbly off white head with long retention and modest cling and lacing. Its aroma featured strong notes of citrus, pine, and straw with floral tones and some spice. The beer had a lively bitter citrus taste with strong grainy and earthly flavors and some nice spice and kick, very zesty. It had a lively, fizzy mouthfeel with high carbonation and a very dry body with an average thickness.

Johnsense (935) - - MAR 12, 2015
Gold pour, monstrous head. Pine more prevalent than your typical citrus in the aroma. Resinous. Quite bitter, pine resin, caramel malt backbone really takes a backseat here. Medium body. Citus and balance freaks may want to look elsewhere but those looking for a fairly good resin bomb will be happy.

HippyHop (385) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2015
Pour is a nice light caramel colour with a persistent off-white head that leaves great lacing. Nose is earthy/herbal/floral/piney hops with faint caramel malt. Much like my buddy Freaky_Tiki, I find this stuff lacks the citrusy/tropical hop notes that I love in a good WC IPA, but this stuff is still an interesting take, and highly drinkable.

Pours a golden orange color. Dry hop flavor, nice body...overall dry. Forgot to take aroma notes.

bartlebier (2416) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2015
24oz bottle pour, BKL ’15 - FR. Clearish golden-green pour, emitting only subtle aromatic wet tree rind warnings of the pine within: full-blast resins, lime leaf, citrus pith and shorter lived herbal notes. Dry, with no trace of its abv. Just not my sort of (West) Coast IPA, missing some malt complexity here to balance out the resin blast.
