VertBaconStrips (2063) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
Never heard of these guys. Peaches and pine, oranges and lime, pungent on deep huffs like of a bag of buds. No weed smell but it has that thickness. Cool spice mixed with melon. long long lasting cap and lacing. Why does anyone drink beers cold? Makes no sense. Creamy feel as it’s softly carbonated. Plenty of pine flavour but it’s not a harsh one. Don’t know what the main spice is. Pine breath, mild melon, fruits that were there before have really faded, faint rrgf. Solid tasty brew.

DuffMan (6512) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle. Bright orange amber, lovely ripe soft tropical fruit hop character, quite sweet and juicy, some herbal and conifer notes linger in the finish. Very good.

presario (4591) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
A little rougher and a little more serious. Ready to play with the big boys. Lasting foam on dark amber. Strong complex hop scent; mix of eucalyptus, cedar and spruce. Touch of medicinal eucalyptus in the taste. Solid malt and a bit of hop spiciness. A bit of spruce tips.

650ml brown bottle. Medium god in colour, clear. Well formed white and creamy cap. Nose has pine, citrus and tropical fruit backing. Taste has piney hop and resiny notes up front, tropical fruity middle. Citrus and pine finish, medium hoppiness and long hoppy aftertaste. Good mix of hops, enjoyable.

MunBro (249) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
Aroma of hops and tropical fruits. Taste is the same. Yummy! Nicely balanced. I did like their session IPA just a little more but this one was amazing too. Will be trying more by them!

reebtogi (4080) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
650ml bottle pours a copper color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is tropical fruits with citrus and pine and a trace of caramel. Taste is a bold citrus and pine hop bitterness with a light caramel and tropical fruity sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation leaving a nice feeling on the palate. A very bold and tasty IPA that is definitely worth sampling.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Keg at the brewery tap, 18/04/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white swirl and edgework. Nose is bitter hops, orange pith, pine resin, mango, straw, orange squash. Taste comprises pine, pink grapefruit, orange pith. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close, big pine linger. Solid IPA.

rlgk (10082) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2014
Draught at the Tasting Room. Clear golden beer with a nice lasting offwhite head. Fruity pine apple aroma, mango, citrus, peach, passion fruit, floral, oranges, grapes, some clementines. Hoppy pine flavor, grassy, pine apples, peach, citrus, mango, oranges, some mandarin. Lovely IPA.

StefanSD (2083) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 13, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a translucent copper color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma is big and bold with oranges, grapefruit and something salty. The taste is oranges, melons, grapefruit and persimmons set nicely in a bready malt base. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is soft. Finishes long and bitter. Overall: By far and away the best beer I’ve had from these folks, but I thought that the bitterness was just a tad harsh around the edges. Paired nicely with corn chips.

SDalkoholic (2135) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle from SBL: Bold scent of hops perhaps Nelson meeting Simcoe and few others joined as well to complete a full bodied poly-hopped IPA aroma. Liquid glistened a consistent solid shiny brass color while a soapy foam of head formed on top. The drink is well balanced with an upfront profile of hops while a supporting background of flavorful malt that really knocks pleased my craft beer quench. Palate is a biting bitter of hops but has a biscuit aftertaste but pretty good beer for the price of $5. I felt it was fair.
