canary dog (743) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - SEP 22, 2016
I really have trouble writing reviews for these IPAs because they all, relatively, taste the same to me. High quality, fresh-tasting IPAs are a dime a dozen and very few examples are doing anything dramatically different or re-inventing the wheel. At least not the ones I am drinking. And there’s nothing wrong with that. This is another fine tasting IPA I would qualify as high-quality.

jmohno (1520) - Iowa, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Gold orange. Creamy head. Strong fruity candy, powdery resin. Nice aroma. Same taste, with pine citrus. Mild malty but clean and hoppy. Strong bitter. Good balance.Full body, nice character, all around nice IPA.

GJF (1510) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Can at the Lincoln Wine Bar. Pine and fruits: peach and grapefruit. A little fizzy to me--I don’t like it as much as their Detour, but a solid beer.

Hazy orange - gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is slightly soft but there is still decent fine carbonation. Fluffy malts, light creamy sweetness. Very nice orange and tangerine hop. Touch of citric peel bitterness. Spicy pine finish. Citric peel linger. Really like the juicy rich citrus here.

Benzai (14029) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2016
Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO’s after GBBF Day 1. Clear light orange-golden color, medium sized white to off-white head. Aroma is malts, again a bit old hops, hops, old a bit stale fruityness. Tastes about the same: malts, old hops, a bit stale fruityness, bitter. Decent body, medium carbonation. Decent but fresh it could and should be much better.

Eructoblaster (3842) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
On tap at the Adirondack Hotel on Long Lake (Long Lake, NY). Beautiful cloudy, golden/orange body with a thin, lasting, white creamy head. Wonderful hoppy aroma with malty, mango, citrusy, and herbal hints. Its sharp, well balanced hoppy taste carries grapefruit, mango, and herbal notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. Awesome!

Out of a can hazy dull orange/amber small off white head. Lots of deep rich citrus and piney resinous hop flavors. Sturdy malt body. Big and serious.
