TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Can, thanks SHIG! Hazy golden with small white head, adequate lacing. Nose is well balanced, some citrus and tropical fruits, grass, as well as some more meatier malts. Fairly clean, easy drinking, light citrus, much more herbal, toasted malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

emacgee (3874) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Shared by turdferguson. Pours a cloudy soft peachy yellow with a sticky white head. Nose is interesting, hard to describe. Some piney and citrusy notes with a juicy/tropical quality. Definitely some tropical and ephemeral fruits in the flavor with a lightly candyish quality. Slightly soapy too, but soap I want to drink if that makes sense. Light to medium in body with a dry finish.

deyholla (5972) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Can. Pours a clear gold with an amber hue with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges and laces nicely. Aroma has a nice note of citrus and grapefruit with a bit of backing pine and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has more of a pine/grapefruit hop profile with a bit of citrus in the finish and not much of a malt profile.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Pure amber pour. But little head. Super floral aroma. The hops are dominant of course. Super viscous, oily, and did I mention oily? Delicious supper for the hopheads. (#4638, 7/1/2012)

Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce can. Lots of fruity hop notes, citrus, floral, resin. The malts are restrained. A tasty beer.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 12, 2012
12 oz can from Shig, thanks for hauling this up for me. Hazy golden yellow with a small head. Aroma of bubble gum/cotton candy, floral hops and cereal grain. Flavor is mildly sweet malt and a medium hop bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice IPA, thanks Shawn.

Ughsmash (7005) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Canned. Poured medium, straw golden with a fluffy, well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy pine, peach, and grapefruit hoppage over a sweet fruity core.. very fresh and enjoyable. The flavor found pine, pepper, and grapefruit bitterness over bread and fruity sweetness.. spicy on the finish, with some muddled hoppage.. not as good as the nose, but still solid. Medium-bodied and on the bitter side on the palate.. watery and slick at times on the middle.. the feel wasn’t quite there, but overall this was solid.

bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Can from Brewforia. Pours light amber gold with a 3 finger frothy white head. Aroma is floral with light citrus over barely detectable caramel. Near med body. There’s lots of floral, a little citrus. This is not harsh. There’s a hint of that, maybe some resin, but this is smooth and relatively delicate. It’s certainly not sweet, but it isn’t exactly what I’d call bitter. It’s one of those interesting beers that has a load of hop, but there’s not bitter/burn. Finishes very hoppy. And certainly more bitter than sweet. Very nice thing here.
