Pour from a bottle is a very hazy light amber. Smells is subtle grapefruit and citrus. Taste is subtle grapefruit with a little hints of tea. Leaves a clean after taste.

Una west coast Dipa bastante compleja, que se hace algo pesada para mi gusto por la potencia del sabor, pero muy disfrutable,

Backlog entry. Good flavors, close to style, as expected without too many surprises.

Pint can from Wine Warehouse. Pours a pretty orange-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of orange, melon, passion fruit... but it also smells old. Flavor is very melony as well, with hints of orange. Tastes old, like it's well past it's prime, but I'm sure that's just the way these hops taste (I don't know if I've specifically noticed this before, but a quick browse through other reviews says the same). Has a bitter white wine-like finish. I just don't like this.

Can in Seattle. Lingering ring foam, rich red orange color, light cloudiness. Hop aroma tastes a bit orange and flat, perhaps old. Fruity orange, body has some lightly sweet and dull malts. Fairly thick sip, odd astringent bitterness. Anonymous berries and citrus pulp flavors. Fair.

16oz can purchased blind from Craft Beer Cellar in Grand Rapids, MI because of the cool artwork on the can. Even though I’m not a big wine fan, this is pretty good. I’ve tried 3 or 4 beers with this hop, and this is the one I like best. Aroma is lost due to my f-ed up sinuses. Flavor is definitely white wine, a bit of tropical fruit, very low bitterness, pretty decent malt balance, zero booziness. Palate is a bit light for an IIPA. Ends very dry, just like white wine. Darn good, but not a flavor/palate profile I would seek out again.

On tap at the Pour Taproom (SC). Pours with a lightly hazy golden-amber body that’s topped by a durable white head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Medium+ carbonation; medium body. Lots of citrus in the pleasing aroma. The flavor is bolder and richer than the aroma suggests, and leaves a semi-bitter lingering aftertaste. Mild bitterness for style. Well hidden ABV.

Pinta en Etxeberria (Hondarribia) Aroma a lupulo fresco, apariencia turbia, muy buen sabor con bastante amargor pero que no cansa, en general muy buena.

garroch (84) - New York, USA - JUL 3, 2017
Poured from a can bought from Bella Vita in New Haven. Pours dark amber. Thin white head recedes quickly. Pine resin and dark fruit on the nose. Mild malt flavor behind lemon peel, pine, plum and white grapes. Finish is sour and bitter. Carbonation is fine and each sip releases a burst of effervescence. Mouth feel is somewhat thin. Overall a really interesting beer. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This brew is a clear dark gold color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of piney hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, tropical citrus and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a grapefruit and hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
