brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle @ home, courtesy of Flair. Hazed orange/amber pour with a rocky off-white head. Smells of intense apricot, pineapple, and orange rind. Dank pine and some light malty sweetness. Really nice fruity character on the palate. Tons of apricot, peach, and sweet orange. Mild grapefruit peel and pineapple with a nice piney bitterness. Decent amount of sweet malt/bread. Solid boost.

Poured from bomber into pint glass. Nice herbal/grassy aroma with a touch of citrus. While some reviews mentioned a high bitterness on this, I thought it was pleasantly balanced. The hop profile itself is really diverse, hitting on a bit of citrus along with some grassy elements and even a bit of peppery or vegetable spice. Easy drinking like all TG ales, but less aggressive than something like Sue or even Zeelander. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gold pour with a cream head. Nose is fresh mango, juicy hops, grass, and grapefruit. Great palate, super fresh hops, mango, and a smooth finish.

rxeight (1365) - Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from mike. Thanks man. Yellow and orange in color. Bitterness rules in this one. Pine and wood. Touch of citrusy hops but mostly bitter. Smooth finish with lots of lingering bitterness. Drinks more like a IPA bordering in double than American pale. Quick edit to add that I did get some grapefruit as it warmed up.

MrChopin (3347) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
murky lemon, still look after a second, oily white top. Heavily piney nose, oily with biscuit notes, no muddled fruit. Ultra bright mango and orange front palate, mid sparkles with lightly syrupy cotton candy, plastic hints amidst bright orange. Stinging sugars in finish but thinner body keeps from oppressive.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
22 oz. bottle shared by NielsenRatings. Thanks, A-A-Ron! Pours a hazy, dull gold with a small white head that laces the glass. The aroma has big, dank, herbal and citrusy hops, earthy notes, some pale malts- but wow, this is herbal, like hop pellets. Flavor of herbs, citrus and tropical fruits, celery, and pale malts. Light-medium bodied, with a juicy, herbal mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. So fresh and herbal. Really interesting, certainly more so than the Orange.

Seems like as good a night as any to rate my 100th American Pale Ale
Pours a bright golden color with a small but well retained white head & some lacing on the glass.

I really dig the aroma on this one very aromatic, very hoppy, the hop character tends towards lots of mango & passionfruit... not a heck of a lot going on there outside the fruit forward hops... not a lot else needed though.

The flavor is nice moderately bitter with a sort of layered hop thing going on the fruity aromatics from the aroma are certainly repeated in the taste, but to a less pungent degree add a bit of citrus rind & pineapple in there as well. However there is a bit of a woody earthiness to the hops as well... it has that sort of leafy character to it that you would expect from a English hop varietal. The malt is defiantly not buried here either and has a light toasty thing going on. The beer is basically dry but has a touch of malt sweetness up front.

Bottle at RBWG 2014. Cloudy yellow color, Aroma of sweaty lemons. Taste is bitter, dank lemons. The combo works pretty well.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - FEB 14, 2014
From notes. Bottle share courtesy of Bytemesis. Thank you! Complex.. Aromas of mango, pine and wood, with floral highlights and honeysuckle. Good up-front pop of aroma.. Unfortunately, mid-palate is a bit hollow.. Yet finish comes back to life with more tropical flavors, mango and resinous herbs. Enjoyable aroma. Happy to add my two cents about this unknown hop. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle - Pours clear amber with a foamy off-white head. Nose is mango, papaya, and onion. Pungent on top of a mellow crackery malt base. Taste is mango and onion hops, a touch of citrus and pine in the background, and the same light malt base. Thick and fluffy--tastes a lot like pseudoSue.
