Finally a IPA that’s good that doesn’t run 10+ bucks a sixer. Nice fruity aroma with piney hops(not blatant) really pretty good with summer food esp spicy dishes and fish.

joeneugs (5688) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Can. It pours a light golden color with an off white head. The aroma is kind of tropical with some grape and a little peach/pineapple. Very fruity hops. The flavor is clean with some berries, a little caramel and spicy hops in the finish. Medium bitterness. The malt is subdued. Enjoyable.

tillmac62 (684) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2016
COD 115/16. Golden pour with a touch of amber. Very good head volume, outstanding lacing and very good retention. Outstanding nose of sweet citrus (orange, tangerine), a hint of pepper and subtle pear in the background over a solid bready malt base. Heavy light body that is somewhat smooth. Outstanding carbonation / body balance. The middle is nicely effervescent opening up the flavor fairly well. The finish is prickly. The flavor profile is good - pretty average for the style. Intensity is a bit low while balance is very good. Bitterness is also a bit low but reasonably intense hop flavor makes the beer adequate. Flavors indicated in the nose appear in normal fashion - rind initially followed by fruit flavor over a modestly sweet middle. The finish lingers as rind with a touch of pepper.

Booga (60) - Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2016
On tap at Terrapin Taphouse at airport. Not too bad but not great. Clear mid orange with low head. Some good aroma with definite malty smell. Slightly sweet on the initial taste fading to some malty flavor. Low bitterness.

Bartzilla (617) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Yummy tropical hop bomb from Whole Foods in Atlanta. Very "juicy" while not following the obvious trend of directly putting fruit in the beer. Glad there’s 5 more in the fridge. I mean 4. Glad there’s 4 more in the fridge.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of citrus, fruit, grass, and the best tropics. Flavors of tropical fruits and hops.

OrthoDoc (171) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2016
Very nice IPA. Aroma of juicy citrus, tangerine and sweetness. Very fresh smelling. Taste follows the nose with a very pleasant sweetness on the back end. Clean finish that is not overly dry. Goes down super easy. This is a fantastic IPA that is some where between a session IPA and full on IPA with abv and fullness of flavor. Will get more of this! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hopmaestro (1234) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
Aroma is hoppy and very citrusy with a soft malty presence. Taste is slightly sweet with tangerines, gooseberrys and citrus. Light in the body and very easy to drink.
