Weezel (104) - Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle from @VanS. Really fresh hop aroma that spills out of the glass. Color is fizzy golden with little head. Taste is good hop punch up front with a very clean taste. Wish there was just a little more malt in the background, but this is pretty good stuff.

Dr_Fellini (269) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear light amber color with a thin off white head. Aroma is quite pungent, lots of tropical fruit hops, peaches, apricot. Flavor is excellent with a slight funk to it. Mildly bittersweet with something else, can’t quite place it. Mild bittersweet lingers into the finish with a continued funk. Tasty, but no Pliny.

BoostIPA (1105) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2014
500ml boostle from bytemesis. Thanks! Pours an almost clear gold with a 2 finger white head. Aromas of tropical fruit and pine sap. Taste is bitter first and foremost, with some residual sweetness. Brings a decent amount of juicy hop expression with its goopy fruit, but you can tell the recipe is dated... not next level beats like the newer trend of IPA’s. Finishes semi sweet with huge bitterness, semi abrasive. Not bad, not mind blowing. Perhaps a trend setter back in the day but its old news now.

MWMBeerguy (38) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours a clear, gold color similar to the color of a Dortmunder Export lager. Aroma is citrusy with a hint of garlic. This is a fresh beer purchased from the brew pub so I will attribute the garlic to simcoe hops. The palate is wonderfully easy to drink and similar to Pliny's palate. Great, drinkable ipa.

Brillant IPA. Pours yellow to orange Gold with a nice White Head and a Perfect carbonation. Tastes intense but well Balanced. Moderate bitterness. Big Hype about this beer - was quite sceptic but definetly Worth a try.
