rags2rags (149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2009
22 oz bottle poured into shaker; cloudy dark golden color with a thick creamy head that stays for a little bit, but surprisingly didn’t lace much. Aroma is fruity, floral, and hoppy like any decent IPA. Taste is grapefruity and a little spicy. The same flavor lingers on the palate. This beer doesn’t do anything wrong, but it’s nothing spectacular.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2009
Bottle LCBO. This is exactly what we have been asking the LCBO to bring in for years and in turn, what we have been asking Ontario brewers to make. The LCBO jumped first and I congratulate them for it. Dark yellow, creamy white head, looks great. Aroma is all grapefruit, juicy, lovely. Taste is really nicely grapefruit bitter up front, really juicy with a wicked grapefruit linger. All is held together with a well carbonated medium body with just the right amount of malt. What an awesome IPA, especially after two decent but nowhere in this league Ontario dry hopped pale ales.

pootzboy (1635) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2009
22 oz bomber Re Rate of new formula Pours a hazed golden ale with a puffy 2 finger cap that lasts and laces. Aroma of intense ruby grapefruit and caramel malts. Smooth mouth feel, big malts and grapefruit hops in the front, back side mellows goes a tad bready with resinous bittering. Great West coast IPA ...a classic.

Boutip (5183) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2009
Bottle: Poured a hazy dark golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of bitter hops with medium citrus notes as well. Taste is a mix between some bitter hops with nice fresh citrus notes and a light cereal hidden in the back. Body is quite full with some good carbonation. Well done but hardly stands out from the pack.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - NOV 26, 2009
The name aptly describes the color. Sampled from growler on thanksgiving at hyvee courtesy of kj. Hoppy, hoppy in aroma and flavor, perhaps more malty sweet than some ipas

LadySusan (724) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2009
Taster at Mondial de la biere 09 Montreal. The color is a hazy honey with a beige head. The arome is of hops but not that strong. The taste also of hops,fruits and some sweetness. The finish is bitter and a bit sour.

Strykzone (5526) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Quite cloudy dirty golden in color with a small white head. The second pour from the 22 oz. bottle game a larger head and one with a bit of gold color. Layered lacing on the glass. A distinct aroma of hops that gives multiple fruit notes and peppery spice. Flavor is bitter and spicy. It offers more citrus than the aroma would hint at, especially grapefruit. Warmer temperatures does nice things here as the beer becomes smoother and more flavorful. This is a very nice and interesting IPA. Cool name, too.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 24, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2009 On draught at Plan B (Simsbury, CT): Pours like apricot juice with a decent head. Nose is mango, apricot, orange, and papaya purée, honey, and sweet, floral hops. Flavors are big on hops with a balance of fruity, sweet malts. A touch of honey lingers in the finish. Soft bodied, mildly carbonated. Drinkability: Soft, and hoppily luscious. It’ll make anybody happy. Rebuy: Certainly. #219 on 24112009, DG.

Huge hops, mostly citrus with really big grapefruit as well as some pine. Not much malt backbone in this thing but it’s a nice hop bomb for those enjoy such beers.
