Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle from The Brauhaus. A very nice IPA. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is a little sweet with fruity hops, like tropical juice. Flavours of passion fruit, pineapple and pine before a big bitter hit wipes these away. Some sweetness lingers initially with a nice bitter linger. Mouth-feel is quite foamy and a little oily.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear golden orange, decent white head that fades to a thin layer of bubbles. Orange peel, pineapple nose. Caramel malt front with a big lemony/peppery, herbal bitter linger that stays for a while. Nice IPA.

markwise (5308) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2011
A nice, surprising IPA. Pours orange with a white-ish head. Nose is some orange, apricot, peach, grass, and slight pine with a hint of floral. Flavor is similar with a healthy dose of malt for support. Light to medium in body and a rival with Jai Alai for my everyday IPA.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle in NZ at The Hope Garden (Wellington). A more mellow West Coast IPA - could there be such a thing?!

jlieber17 (201) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 2, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours orange-copper with big foamy off-white head. Nose on the head is pineapple, coconut; later nose is sweet. Chewy with a lasting resiny bitterness.

Terminus (3626) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 22, 2011
tap at brewpub-pours bright orange with a very small white head around the rim of the glass-mostly tropical nose with tones of tangerines, tropical melons and lite catty note. flavors are very well balanced between citric tropical passionfruit with a hugely resinous finish. very drastic difference but it works here-its almost palate wrecking. very tasty! i dig it!

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Appearance: pours clear orange with a touch of chill haze. Gorgeous pithy head is clumpy, lacey, wispy, bubbly, and thick. Swirls thicker.
Nose: orange, mandarin, mango, and lemon. Dew-dropped flower petals and green grass. Zip and zest. Floral esters in the back.
Palate: chewy and meaty with orange, mango, and honey up front. Dry finish of citrus skin and inner pith. Chewing on green grass heavy with morning dew. Pith parches while skins bitter and thirst ensues. Floral esters lightly tinge the breath.
Final Thoughts: simply good and straight to the hoppy point pith, skin, resin, oils, zest, grass, dew.
