potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Old GABF pad notes, sorry...still updating. Yellow/white. Smells like hot dogs and malts soaked in grapefruit juice. Flavors are hop pine, and citrus all over. Big IPA bomb! Goes sweet to wet bitter.

tap at the brewpub - Pours hazy orange with a thin head. The aroma is very nice with both pine and citrus notes in the hops. The flavor is similar with the citrus coming through more than the pine and a moderately strong hops profile thatís well balanced by the malt. This one was clearly the star of the brewery sampler for me. Excellent!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2008
Draft @ Oíbrienís. Poured a slightly hazed amber color with an off-white head. The aroma had a nice hop component. Citrus, pine and floral. Hard to pick up the malt under it. Flavor has less hop complexity. Mainly just grapefruit juice with a mild bitter finish. Semi-dry. Light-medium body.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2008
At SDBC. A slightly hazed orange/red pour with gooey head and lace. Very mcuh the hints of cat piss from the large hop profile. A bit of grapefruit flavor with not so much malt backbone. Solid mouthfeel and good carbonation. Another solid IPA. Not over the top but very refreshing.

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2008
On tap @ San Diego Brewing brewpub. Pours hazy orange-ish with straw edges, white head and decent lacing. The aroma is freshly sliced tangelo mixed with grapefruit juice. This beer is a hop bomb that tastes as if itís a normal IPA mixed with freshly squeezed grapefruit and tangelo juice. Fresh!! It seems to begin with hop spice bitterness that quickly becomes grapefruit to tangelo sweet hop flavor blended into hop bitterness. Excellent hoppy brew. The big hops covered up the subtle Belgian yeast character that is in there. I can taste it.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 1, 2008
On draft at brewpub. This is actually more of a belgian style than an IPA, but Iíll leave it to the admins to sort out. Nonetheless, this is another adventurous beer from Dean! Hazy amber, with a moderate off-white head and spots of lace. Hop forward aroma, lively citrus, pine and floral notes, malts are toasty/grainy with belgian yeasts mingling sensously with the hops. Flavor is quite Interesting and good, with a fascinating interplay between the brash hops and bready, sweet belgian yeasts and malts, dusty, candy sugar notes and nicely balanced. medium body, gently prickly carbonation. I seem to be a fan of these Belgian/IPA hybrid styles. Nice!
