brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 8, 2017
On tap @ Chuck's Hop Shop Greenwood. Hazed golden beer with a finger of white foam. A mix of the juicy/hazy IPA and more traditional west coast IPA. Has a good bitterness of pine and citrus rind with plenty of softer citrus. Some bread and biscuity malts. Actually slightly dank and herbal. Good citrus all the way through--lime, orange peel, and grapefruit. Pretty good stuff. MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 11, 2017
(can) Hazy, pale golden colour with blonde mid-sized foamy head. Intensively fruity hoppy aroma with citrus, grapefruit, pineapples and hints of mango. Bitter flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Very dry pale malty, slightly wheaty start with the full load of citric hops, grapefruit and tropical accents; dry and hop bitter finish with lasting citric, exotic and delicately piney hoppy flavours. 27.III.17 jfb (6984) - GERMANY - MAR 27, 2017
(bottle) very hazy pale golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of heavy resin and black pepper, with some notes of yeast, herbal hops, bran flakes and almond milk. flavour is mostly thyme and yeast, slightly chalky, with lots of herbal hops, ethanol, sugar icing and a light-bitter finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation. jonas (8281) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2017

Can. Pours hazy orange, like orange juice. nose is apricot, orange, bitter orange, citrus, peach. Palate is too bitter for my taste, sweet and fruity finish. Good.

Cloudy golden with little white head. Aroma is fizzy tablet, grapefruit, orange peel, nice and fruity. Taste is bitter malt with fruity sweetness that lies on top. A bit mealy on the tongue. Slightly spicy while swallowing. Good. bartlebier (4217) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2017
16oz can (1/13/17) kindly PNW-hauled by SinH4, merci vielmals! - Aroma of dank green pineapple & lime rind, stopping short of tropical, instead: cooked lemon grass stalks, catty wet wood shavings. Mr. Mittens scratching at that giant redwood? Love the medium-dense mouthfeel rich with mysteriously malty muck. Mainly Chinook-type fruit resins, more lemongrass stalks and pine jam in taste, whereas I’m partial to a more cosmically citrussweet D/IPA. Also that residual KellerYeast astringency, powdery white bread. But I do like bitter buttermilk, so... DSG (15432) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 21, 2017
[1/27/17] Bottle/Can/Crowler/Growler at a bottle share at Flamingo Hotel in Santa Rosa. Cloudy yellow. Oniony fruity hops. Dry, moderately bitter, "green". Sarlacc83 (2439) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Can from the production brewery.
A: Very cloudy peach color with a drifting white head.
N: Lime, orange zest, big pine and spruce needles, earthiness, leafiness, quite a bit of grapefruit. Some light lemon zest and a hint of pineapple and mango way far underneath. Cracker peaks through the port window at times. Touch of weeds. Kind of a dank orange-julius thing going on here.
T: Very, very bitter. Lightly sweet.
M: Medium-heavy, very sticky body. Light alcohol burn. Lively carbonation.
O: A sturdy display of IPA. I don’t like it nearly as much as Dab Lab: Juicy Joint, but it’s good in a New England style kind of way. Zeswaft (1786) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Can. Cloudy gold with frothy head. Plum, citrus, orange peel, tropical aroma. Velvet body and low carbonation. Creamy sweet cream orange juice. Tropical hops. Delicious. 7.8% is pushing it but damn this is fine.
