Braudog (6299) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
Draft at the Birch. Golden amber with a sticky but thin top. Drinks with a definite resin-heavy hop assertiveness, but is exceptionally easy going and drinkable. The 7% ABV is somewhat evident, but not overpowering. Excellent. (#4974, 4/6/2013)

AirForceHops (6081) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Draft @ Good Karma, San Jose. Light haze in a gold liquid. Aroma is big citrus and hints of cat pee. Citra hops? Am I right with the Citra? Lots of fruit aromas. Body and mouthfeel is right for the style, light bitterness. The flavor is rather good for the style. Lots of fruity citrus balanced with biscuit / dough malt. Crisp finish with nice tropical fruit flavor. Really simple to drink could border on the IPA style.

GenDV138 (5732) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2015
4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, floral notes. Tastes of floral, grapefruit and lemon lime citrus fruit and peel. Medium body with a dry finish. Great stuff, drinks almost like an IPA.

joeneugs (5709) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 31, 2013
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a golden yellow color with a thick white head. Nice aroma of lemon rind, pilsner malt and hard citrus candy. The flavor is big with lemon rind bitterness and lots of florals. A bit too intense with bitterness in the finish, but otherwise a top notch IPL.

PhillyCraft (5605) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Growler fill from old e courtesy of some bros. Appearence is hazy gold with medium white fluff head, nice lacing. Aromas of dank and pungent hops, lots of bitter rind and floral pineyness. Taste was pretty sessionable with a good citrus hop bite in the finish. Easy going with a Medium body. Great summer drinker.

obguthr (5587) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Draft: Whole lemon and orange peel nose, fresh. Clear amber, medium head, abundant carnonation erupting from the bottom of the glass. An intensely fresh and juicy punch of tangerine and lemon initially, giving way to orange peel. Lager? Outstanding, although not within guidelines, example of the style.

dwyerpg (5548) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 22, 2013
An eleven for the aroma. Like biting a fresh hop. Truely the epitome of this new IPL category, the hops are citrusy and floral and linger around just the right amount. The flagship beer of this newish style.
