RedSox2004 (2000) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Pours a hazy orange amber with a thick ceamy off white head, nice retention and terrific lace. Aromas of caramel and pine, with mint, citrus, and grass in the background. Flavors are similar, with emphasis on the caramel malt seetness and and resinous pine. Medium body and carbonation, slightly oily mouthfeel and a pleasant piney hops finish.

Ringnes (3) - Elk River, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2012 does not count
Pours a deep golden hue with a two inch head that holds the glass quite well. The taste is well balanced and provides a nice mix of hops and malt. This is easily quaffable and very refreshing. I believe batch #37 is the best one yet.

dfearnley (2381) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Interesting nitro pour into a pint glass. A cloudy amber pour with a 1/2 cm long lasting off white head. Big grapefruit aromatic notes with an underlying sweetness. Nitro pour makes this a very creamy and smooth IPA. There's a great malt/hop balance with this beer. It starts off sweet and hoppy, but the end is piney as well. A great IPA.

3.7
nuplastikk (6512) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2012
22oz bottle split with Anndiesel, procured on her East Coast jaunt. Unfiltered thick orange-tan, steady off-white head. Resiny, grassy, herbal hop aroma, Hop forward, but a big malt body underlying. Fuggles/EKG..maybe some Cascade if I had to guess, they come off pretty big and resinous. A pretty solid IPA, somewhere between regular and Imperial. Quality offering, well done.

4.1
luv2brew (197) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Large white head, massive nose with an evident bitterness. Hazy dark yellow in color. I don’t know if this is as much citrus as it is juniper like, but definitely oppy. Really nice bitterness as well as an equal balanced malt

3.2
PhillyCraft (8196) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2012
On tap at Pour House. Pours a cloudy orange color with yellow hues. Medium to large tight bubbles head. Aromas of boozey oranges, piney hops, and honey mead. Taste is pure honey sweetness, oranges, marshmallow. Had a pleasent floral aftertaste. Good ipa.

4.2
Onslow (1540) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Pour from a 22oz bomber. Beautiful translucent cloudy dark yellow brew with white head. Aroma of citrus, erbal, juniper, with hints of fresh fruit. Taste is great - moderately sweet malt at the start and nice hops running through the finish. Citrus, floral, herabal, wonderful complexity. A fine DIPA.

3.6
slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle. Nose is bright fruity hops. Citrus, nectarine, strawberry. Cloudy dark orange with a decent white head. Firm bitterness with wet pine and a dry citrus rind finish. Good texture, very full with a nice middle astringency.
