elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2013
12oz bottled Dec 13 2012. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours semi-hazy yellow/gold with a one finger white head that leaves lots of spots of lacing and maintains a very good cap.

Aroma is nice lemon citrus, pineapple, somewhat grassy and floral, biscuit, doughy malt. Very good strength.

Flavor is lemon citrus, pineapple, grassy, floral hops, grapefruit rind, tropical fruit, malt is light and unobtrusive, cracker, bread, biscuit. Minimal sweetness, very good bitterness, some alcohol on the finish. Very dry.

Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied, good carbonation.

Wow, this is some awesome stuff! Very hoppy, unbalanced, just the way I like it. Love pineapple in my IPAs and this delivers. Reminds me a bit of a baby Founders Double Trouble.

mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle ($2.75): Pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma is a LOT of citrus. I suppose that there is also pineapple in retrospect, but citrus is really overpowering. It is really pure in its form, I would add. So clean. Taste is exactly what I expected from the aroma. Fruitiness. Medium bitterness. Nice aftertaste. Quite good.

Westmeister (1806) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2014 November Ale Alpharetta. Didnít know this beauty was out there. Bounty of fruity, citrus and tropical pineapple over a crisp malt base. Super good and would be my local favorite if available. Great and unique hop combo. Medium carbonation lends to a superb beer.

Cybercat (3444) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Pours a hazy apricot with a nice white head. Hoppy aroma has a strong sour fruit underpinning. Flavor is quite hoppy, mostly woody, with sour fruity undertone and a hint of malt. Mouthfeel is quite fizzy, if not too firm. Unleash your inner Tasmanian - devil.

Pretty good ipa, the Australian hops really shine through. 12 oz bottle poured into a point glass. Thin golden color, with minimal white head. Aroma is huge pineapple, slight citrus, and hay. Flavors follow the same with a dank finish. Medium-High carbonation, watery mouthfeel, medium hoppy finish.

MartinVanBeer (113) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bright gold pour and a small frothy head. Interesting aroma. Definitely some pineapple, a little dough, and some peach. It's juicy and tropical. Like a grilled pineapple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kinz (3348) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2014
On tap at Mekong. Poured a lightly hazy dark gold, white head threw a good lace. Aroma was fantastic - I think I sniffed this for five minutes before taking a single sip, just a shot of pineapple and other tropical fruit hoppy bitterness. Flavor was a match, with enough crackery malt to hold it together while keeping the focus on the hops. Exceptionally well done, a wonderful IPA.

Emeister84 (1101) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Heavy aromas of tropical fruit and stone fruit, mango, peach. Slightly hazy light orange, lasting white head. Very balanced, some alphas upfront, maintains a fruity quality. Light-medium bodied, very drinkable.

Smooth drinking beer with an aroma of citrus and ammonia. Wouldnít break the bank for it, but tís worth a try.
