WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2012
Solid IPA. Nose of citrus and pine resin. Deep amber, small head. Taste of citrus and grapefruit and caramel and sweet malts; good balance between strong malts and strong bitter hops. Bitter finish. Mouth is almost cloying, not with sticky sweetness but with sticky resin.

tfontana (185) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is bready malt with floral hops. Appearance is mildest of haze with nice sparkle and orangey light brown color with 1 finger width foamy white head with nice lacing. Taste is moderately sweet with some bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, average carbonation and long finish with mild bitterness. Overall, the bottle was fairly old so it may have lost a lot of hoppiness, but I have to say I liked it just the same. Maybe not as complex as if it were fresh and not as true to the style, but good. I’ll have to try again with a fresh bottle.

sebletitje (7913) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2015
Can from Total Wine, Tampa. Orangée, col blanc-cassé. Arôme au bouquet épicé et plaisant, malt caramel, fruité laissant de belles notes d’agrumes. Palais est malté, pâle et caramel, fruité houblonné assez renfermé. Pointe de pamplemousse, fini liquoreux voire résineux. Reste également légèrement épicé.

Joshua0317 (7) - sun prairie, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2015 does not count
Its citrus laced, creamy/smooth on the palate, dry, not very aromatic but that could be because it comes in a can and I didn’t pour into a cup. Overall ok beer, but not a jump to choice for an IPA for me.

hman43 (628) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2015
It pours dark golden with orange tinges and a full white head that leaves plenty of lacing. It has citrus aromas with hints of pine and lemon. The flavors are a piney, citrus combination with a moderate bitter bite on the palate.

Jabah (218) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2015
This has an overall good balance of malt to hop ratio, while retaining itself as a hop-bomb. Not quite over the top, but very bitter up front and at the finish....with a decent amount of sweetness at the end from the malts. Pretty much West Coast style. Clean and semi-crisp medium bodied feel. Hazy light orange appearance. Will be added to my rotating list of IPAs.

유인타 브루 - 홉 노쉬 IPA 7.3% ABV 유타주 솔트레이크 시티의 브루어리. 지역적 편견관 달리 매우 잘 짜여진, 벨런스에 충실한 IPA. 거품 유지력도 인상적이다. 시트러시함과 솔 향의 암묵적 타협. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

Great flavor and aroma if you love hops. Nice citrus notes. Strong, but doesn’t have the heavy taste and palate of an imperial, great beer.
