On tap at Cask Republic - New Haven, CT. Plain, green, planty aroma. The flavor follows through in a lot of bitterness and coppery malt. Clean, but yellow with raw hoppiness. I can’t get into this, it feels like an overly bitter Amber Ale with young flavor hops.

SlovakSniper (3826) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
Une grosse canette offerte par Didier. Une IPA dorée avec une tête blanchâtre qui tente de s’accrocher. Un nez vraiment floral et plein de conifères avec un fruité qui me rappelle le pamplemousse et le melon sur des malts toastés. Des papilles qui auraient voulu davantage de fruits. Beaucoup de notes florales, de la gomme collante d’épinette et un profil céréalier en pain caramélisé. En bouche, un liquide de moyenne densité avec un pétillement modéré et une texture un peu mince. En finale, une résine accentuée par le jeu malhabile de l’alcool.

k0mpsa (1699) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2015
Tap at beertemple, amsterdam. Light copper color, white head. Multifruity and hoppy aroma, sweet notes. Nice hoppy but sweet taste, citrus notes.

bigda83 (414) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Can. Poured a slightly hazy amber with enormous white fluffy head to it. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, and sweet malts. Flavor was lacking and mostly malt bomb with caramel and had an apple juice taste. Medium body, thin texture. Carbonation was way overdone and beer was foaming out when I opened it and super bubbly and fizzy in the glass like pop would be. Easy drinking for 8% and rather dry. I was expecting more. Date on can was smudged so I couldn’t tell if this was fresh or old. It was either March or May canned it looked like.

Yorker (1541) - Herning, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2015
35 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear golden with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are pine, citrus, flowers, and caramel - with a bitter finish.

Dedollewaitor (14531) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2015
Can @ Vinoble, Odense. Pours hazy golden with a creamy white head. Pine, citrus and grapefruit. Little malts. Very refreshing and enjoyable. Bitter finish. 8% is well hidden.

Bulk_Carrier (2672) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Bottled on 04/08/15. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some stringy lacing sticking to the glass. The smell had a big sweet burst of citrus rind and pulp over top of floral features and gently allowing a light caramel malt delicately balancing. The taste was mainly bittersweet citrus hops and giving off a nice dry bitter citrus rind - like aftertaste. There’s no finish in this one. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping to sessionable quality about it. Carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. The bitterness level is there and good as a DIPA. Overall, I like this one as a DIPA and definitely recommend for DIPA fans.

mansquito (4054) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: pours copper with a white head. Aroma is thick fruitiness... Mebbe too much malt. Taste is not very bitter. A little bit sweet. Not too much aftertaste. Not too impressesd with this.

Can. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small sized off white head. Citrus, fruity, pine, and floral hops.
