mkel07 (3960) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle from Wine Emporium 030415. Quite a decent IPA this one with a deep copper colour and a thin tan head. More malty than hoppy with a thick body. Resinous and oily in the mouth with a long strong finish.

Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy amber color, small head. The aroma is lightly grainy, vegetables, malt and hops, biscuit, a bit musky; very nice. Medium body strength, the malt flavor has a grainy character, strong bitterness, hop resins, but it also has a vegetable and buttery note.
Imprecise.

July 10th, 2013 - Here comes another IPA from Rough Draft - the Southern Triangle IPA. To my calloused taste buds this has much more of an old world flavor, with a hoppiness that reminds me of a bitter tobacco, and a flavor that conjures images of straps of leather and cigars. This is a "lounge" drinking beer, best paired with smoking jackets and fireplaces. But those can be in short supply in San Diego, so maybe this is a beer best smoked in the company of folks at Racine & Laramie, or just in front of a slow cooker filled with bacon and beans. Whenever or wherever you drink it, make sure flavor is afoot, as this is a slightly stronger beer, and itíll wrest other notes and tastes from you as soon as it can.

I didnít have expectations going into this, but it blew me away. It poured a nice, white, pillow of foam that stuck around for a while. I get a lot of bready characteristics on the nose, that follow through to the initial taste in a big way. That was quickly replaced by accents of tropical fruit, lychee, and pine from the heavy handed hops. The finish lingered for a long time, showcasing a resinous palate and high alpha acid content.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Tasted on 10/27/13 from a capped 22oz bomber bottle. Pours clear burnt orange with an average white head that leaves average lace. The nose is resin hops forward with some grassy pine, and a little touch of caramel malt. The flavor starts of with the caramel malt, but is then completely dominated by super bitter pine resin hops. The body is medium and a bit sticky with average carbonation and a long bitter resin hops finish.

mcberko (8278) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear amber orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out earthy notes, herbal hops, and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is pleasant enough, with notes of biscuity malt, light piney and herbal hops, and slightly stale notes. Finishes dry and biscuity. Decent.

Ferris (6744) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle - Light woody, spicy pine notes. Cleanish copper with a decent beige head. Spicy, woody pine note. Good bitterness. Decent.

snoworsummer (2919) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like resin, citrus hops, dry grapefruit, caramel, nutty. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like caramel, citrus, and hop resin.

[6826-20140926] 650mL bottle. Fruity wet leaf and mango aroma. Clear, orange amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Fruity pineapple mango and bitter grainy flavour. Medium body. Good, a little rough. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5

Jmmyer07 (23) - - NOV 13, 2014
The aroma is sweet malts, honey and bright citrusy hops. on the palate there is a mild hop bitterness with flavors of peach, citrus fruits and grassy hops. Nice and refreshing! Cheers!
