DragonsHead (142) - Morgantown, West Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Had on draft at the Freakin Frog in Las Vegas. Nice hoppy aroma with a solid malt note. Taste was a good, deep hops, not too sharp, with a malty backbone. Overall, a nice balance.

zacgillbanks (5070) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2017
7.0% bottles from Rehills, Newcastle and Boardwalk Market, Tiburon, California, USA. Hazy golden coloured with a thick white head. It has an orange and floral fruity flavour followed by pine, orange blossom and citrus on the sweet, zesty finish. Excellent!

minutemat (5257) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
355ml bottle @ Chez Sophie. Pours a clear deep amber, medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, light fruit. Taste is heavy on the caramel malts, with a fair sweetness offset by a piney resinous hop character. Not my go-to IPA style, but its confident hop presence just about rescues it for me.

DenverLogan (1205) - LA, California, USA - APR 23, 2017
From a 12 oz bottle into a chalice. Pours gold with significant head and lace. Aroma of hay, grains, pine, grapefruit. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grains, pale malt, straw hops, grapefruit juice, pine, minerals, caramel malts. Overall rich, flavorful and tasty. Theres a nice balance between malt and pine hops and I could do a keg of this for sure!

Mjp12 (1760) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2017
A 6 month old bottle, so not sure if it was in best condition. Lots of biscuit malt on the nose, with some spicey hops. The sweet malt is also prominent on the tongue, with some bitter hops lurking in the background .

JohnRMurdoch (4789) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2017
12oz bottle from Valhallas Goat. Orange brown, not much head. Toffee grain aroma. Spicy vanilla toffee hop flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. Too sweet and smooth for an IPA.

maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Bottle. Pours an amber color with a moderate off white head. Nose is stale and reaks of old grass. No date on the bottle. Taste is sweet and fruity, but cloying and off putting. Not good.

maekchu (3816) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 17, 2017
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Piney nose, with caramel, peach, apricot, and some mild alcohol fumes. Copper/orange color. Pine, citrus, moderate caramel, more citrus fruit through mid palate and finish. Medium body. Solid IPA. Kind of flirts with being a hop bomb.
