Scopey (7396) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle at Craft Beer Co tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours deep orange, with a thick off-white head. The nose is sweet tangerine, orange, mango, apricot, orange sherbet, leather and resin. The taste is orange, tangerine, mango, lemon pith, pine, resin, leather and alcohol warmth, with a bitter-sweet citrus finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Tasty and easy drinking.

Well above-average for an east coast IPA in my mind, since it’s pretty dry and hoppy without being overly bitter. Nice citrusy flavor.

Leighton (11860) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle at 1st CBC Sunday Tasting. Pours a clear amber with a big, white head. Strong resinous pine aroma, some sweet toast, hints of grapefruit. Very sweet flavor, toasted bread, some brown sugar, pine, cake. Full bodied with average carbonation. Finishes mildly warm with oily resins, pine, sweet grapefruit and hints of melon. Very drinkable. I love it.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Appearance: Pours a hazy yellow gold with a small white head.

Aroma: Pineapple and pine.

Taste: Bitter hops citrus grapefruit pineapple. Fairly sweet malt holding the hops in place.

Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation, full bodied.

Overall: Solid. Alcohol is super hidden, then again it’s only a 7.4% abv. IIPA.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2011 22 oz. bottle, sent from gn0sis (thanks Eric), pours a cloudy orangey with a small head. Aroma is quite pungent with truckloads of grapefruity hops, quite skunky, resinous hops and caramel malts. Flavour is quite grapefruity and citrusy in hops, with a decent amount of malt to back. Medium complexity and quite a bitter finish. Solid.

Koelschtrinker (11048) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 1, 2011
Der hopfige Beginn ist dumpf und eher dunkel, weit weniger blumig als der Geruch vermuten lässt. Auch im weiteren Verlauf weniger hopfig als vermutet, stattdessen würzig herb, süßlich, im Zusammenspiel vollmundig. Das Gesamtaroma hält leider nur kurz und zerbircht im Abgang schnell, Fruchtig bittere Noten sind hier noch vorhanden, im Nachgeschmack trockene Grasigkeit. 8/10/11/9/7/9

Wachusett sampler pack I found on a road trip to the Boston area. I liked all four beers, and rank this a close second to the regular IPA. Good, mild floral and citrus nose, caramel, some malt, and hints of citrus flavors. Hop heaven here, and the multiple varieties they use work really well in this combination. Get this if you see it, a must-try for and IPA fan or hophead. Wish I could find it in NE Ohio. The Wachusett folks don’t mess around or get overly ambitious with crazy ideas - they brew really good beer.
