b3shine (5587) - Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a hazy light orange with foamy off-white head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; citrus and grassy hops with nice balance and a good mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

mansquito (3459) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Associated Supermarket, Bushwick growler ($10): I suppose that this is the normal version, but who knows. Anyway, it pours a cloudy orange/yellow with a white head. Aroma is wet filthy hops, with some citrus and spice. Taste is mellow and bland at the front then goes for astringent at the back. There is a weird sugary stickiness to this. It seems unbalanced and unperfeccted. Sixpoint can do much better.

AdamJackson (2689) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Cask at Three Penny. Paid $6 Bright orange. 3 finger hear. Smells of wet hops, cascade and pepper. Taste is bright. Hints of citrus and honey. Mild bitterness. Weak pineapple finish.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Supposedly with a new Australia hop variety according to the folks at Paradiso. Pours very cloudy orange with white head. Itís got a substantial moutfeel and a lot of citrus as well as some earth tones....not typical characterics of an IPA. It retains some bitterness and is quite refreshing. unique IPA, and pretty good.

tia (950) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Tap. Hazy amber with cranky white head with decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of grapefruit, pine, and buttered corn. A little buttery in the mouth, too, plus moderate bitterness and herbasceousness. Fresh, bitter finish. Would have higher points without the butteriness.

Smeade (80) - Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2012
An interesting IPA. Hazy gold. Light nose. Soft bitterness. Light body. Crisp, dry finish. Mouth watering. This is a cool, underrated beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - APR 5, 2012
Citrus aroma. Pours hazy straw yellow, off white head with head duration of about 40 seconds. This is very light body for an IPA, dominated by the citrus flavor. Itís an IPA, nothing I would seek out however. Needs to have more body, increase the malt content.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
dogfishho (598) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours bright yellow with a thin head. The aroma is spicy (shock) and thin. The palate is sweeter and fuller than the aroma suggests, but there isnít a whole lot there. Itís somewhat thirst quenching and refreshing, but itís not what your looking for in an IPA.
