MANY thanks to TasterMike for this one! 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a clear golden amber color. The head is a one finger white shade thats relatively soapy, yet consistent and dense. Retention is quite solid, and so is the lacing left behind. S: Oh yeah, thats the stuff. This brings the hops in a fantastic manner - it doesnt bring any significant biting pine notes, rather its mostly stuff like melon, mango, and grapefruit. The bready malts come through enough...and I do mean enough. Which is to say its quite faint, but not nonexistent. T: Oh yeah, thats the-- wait, I wrote that down already. Nevermind, this just works brilliantly. The first few sips have a decent malt backbone sandwiched by a fruity opening and a mildly bitter finish. Right after the swallow, its very reminiscent of fruit juice. People who say that an IPA cant/shouldnt be balanced need to try this - the hop flavor, the bitterness, and the malt backbone are in perfect harmony with one another. If this uses crystal malt - and I think I can taste hints of its toffee qualities buried in here - I may have to drop my petty grudge towards it, because this beer is fantastic. M: I dont really notice the low carbonation or medium body too much - its so dry (in all the right ways) that it still goes down with superb ease. Malt sweetness builds very slightly on the aftertaste, but its not bothersome by any means. O: Holy frig, this is like Sculpin on steroids. Ergo, its now in my top 5 list for IPAs. This is the kind of beer that makes me want to move to San Diego just so I can consume this like water.

lamas (1610) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Best by: 04/12/17. Different label than that in the picture. A slightly hazy amber pour with a thick beige head. Tangerines, kumquats, grapefruits, zesty citrus rinds, pine, and some caramel feature in the appetizing aroma. Goes down medium to full-bodied for the style. Crisp. Caramel and some sweet grains upfront taste-wise. Grapefruits, oranges, and zesty citrus rinds finish things off. Resiny and bitter at the end. Solid.

Alphadelic (2198) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2017
An orange ale with the classic mix of grapefruit and pine on the nose. There is a slight yeast fruitiness in there too I believe. In the mouth it is very smooth with a big texture and a continuation of the hop character from the aroma. This time it is accompanied by a burst of malt sweetness and then a zingy, acetone bitterness that lasts and lasts.

notalush (5772) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2016
I bit on this despite to 12 dollar price tag for the six pack - and I dont really regret it - this is an exceptional IPA - clean malt base, with some honey, maybe a little melon comes out as the hops interplay with the malt - overall, though, clean and gets more dry and crisp through the middle and finish - potent but balanced hop flavors of pepper, grass, citrus rind - clean, bitter finish - world class.

Brewhemia (273) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2016
Clear light golden yellow and white head. Really delicious piney, leafy nad grassy aroma. Like a walk in the woods in the fall (except theres aldo citrus, passion fruit, bread and caramel aroma etct). The taste is nicely balaced. Not overly bitter nor overly sweet. Really nice floral and piney hop flavor.

maekchu (3613) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 7, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Big malty nose, which is immediately replaced by the piney hops. Lots of grass, grapefruit, and peach. Medium orange/amber color, lightly hazy. Very citrusy initial, with oranges, orange peel, and lemon. Caramel in mid palate, More citrus. A bitter resiny finish. Medium body, very crisp. Wow! The hop blend is mazimized here, but the bitterness delights rather than destroys the palate. A great IPA.
