Bottle from my friend Jim. Thanks, Jim. Pours yellow orange with a beautiful one finger foamy head. A lot of bubbles coming up through the beer. Lots of retention and lacing. The aroma is incredibly intense. Unbelievable. Makes me wonder what I have been drinking all these years that called itself and IPA. I get some pine (Simcoe?) and citrus on the nose. Slight floral accent is there, too. The wonderful thing about this beer is it does not taste like so many hop bombs I have had lateley. I would describe the bitterness as medium and just toward the low end for the style. Finish is long and smooth. No harshness, just lingering bitterness. A pleasantly light sweetness balances the bitterness perfectly. The texture of the beer is creamy like the head. Medium body and mouthfeel is lightly tingly. Unlike some beers this beer does not improve as it warms. It is best drank in the first 25 minutes. Overall, a terrific beer. I intended to knock this beer down, because I am sick of all the hype surrounding the brewery. I came away from this beer with incredible respect.

Bottle, thanks to Misterburd. Faintly cloudy golden yellow with large foamy off-white head, faint floral hops aroma, low carbonation, very well balanced hoppy taste after initial sweetness, smooth body, medium hoppy finish.A great IPA and a great choice for rating #2000!

UDBeernut (2519) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2016
This has been a major want. On tap at Belmont station in Portland. Pours golden Amber, white head leaves behind massive lacing powered by plenty of carbonation. Nice pine and resin nose. Taste follows with moderate bitterness. Light to medium body plus the carb level makes it borderline slamable. Pretty fucking good bruhs.

Biroholik (689) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 29, 2016
Draught @ Russian River Brewing, Santa Rosa, California (20.04.2016)
W smaku i aromacie BARDZO podobne do Pliny The Elder, tylko nieco lżejsze. Ogromnie aromatyczne, intensywnie owocowe, cytrusowe, żywiczne, tropikalne. Bardzo solidne nachmielenie. Wyraźny ananas, mango, grejpfrut. Tekstura średnia, znacznie lżejsza niż Pliny. Bardzo wytrawne w stylu West Coast. Finisz gładki, wytrwany jak po nadgryzieniu skórki zielonego grejpfruta. Fenomenalna piana i książkowy, wzorowy lacing. Fenomenalne IPA! 6,25% alk. 14,5 BLG.

Hopmaestro (1141) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2016
You know, sometimes expectations is no good for you? Aroma is sweeter malts, light bread notes and hops with a resinous touch. Taste is pretty solid maltjuice with pine, citrus and resin. I got an almost soapy touch in the aftertaste? Just bordering soapy, but never really tripping over. Solid bitterness.

Bottle share at Cotteridge II as Russian River Blind Pig. Many thanks to Cloin for bringing this hard-to-find IPA back fresh from the US of A. Clear orange, still, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is toffee, floral, celery, herbal hops. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is floral, powdery, toffee, salty, tangy, light fruits with a dry finish. A nice clean IPA. (3.8)

Bottle, from backlog. Golden with white head. Aroma has lot of sweet clean malts, bread, biscuit with loads of pine hops. Taste is similar, a clean sturdy malt backbona with a metric shitton of citrus, pine and resin.

On tap, super local. As described, quite hoppy, moderate lacing, low foam. Bitter taste lingers on the tongue, not unpleasantly. Nice surprise, good
