mansquito (6258) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Smokin Joe’s Pittsburgh bottle: pours light orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit and tropical fruits... Basically very west coast. Bitter and dry with loads of citrus. At 87 ibu it is not overly brutal. Still quite bitter. Quite good but not quite a hundred hundred.

Tap. Full bodied IPA. Light citrus and pine. Decent malt sweetness. Well balanced although the hops dont really pop like i would want them to.

ganache (5773) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2016
BOTTLED ON 07/05/16. Nose strong paper with grapefruit, lemon, orange, lots of rind and some pine; pour clear orange-golden with a foamy off-white head. Taste very dry and strongly bitter though the hints of sweetness from the hops save it from brutality, crisp with citrus rind and heavy resin, spice; sunny with light alcohol showing, touch jammy, light-medium malt as insufficient support but not too bad, lightly airy and definitely oily medium-full body (makes me a touch queasy, to be honest). Some very nice, bold flavors here, but missing on some aspects and a little heavy and non-refreshing for the big points. [2016.08.04: 3.5]

Pours a hazy honey color with a pillowy white head which lingers and laces......aroma of tropical fruits, grapefruit, melon......taste is a touch thin, but seems to thicken on the back end as it warms slightly, melon, mild bitterness, grapefruit, touch peppery with a nice citrus finish. Wow.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/7/2016. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish with a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal astringent hop flavors lingering after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and lightly creamy/grainy mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an insane IPA as expected. All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. An insanely amazing offering all around.

Bottle. Pours golden amber with off-white had. Aroma is sweet fruity orange grapefruit piney. Taste is Taste is sweet malty hoppy with a piney grapefruit finish. Very well balanced with hoppy finish and good, however my preference is the less malty IPAs.

12 oz bottle. pours a nice amber color. smell is very nice and hoppy. taste is excellent. smooth and hoppy. very close to being as good as any IPA I’ve had. Like them a tiny bit more hoppy and citrusy. definitely worth a purchase if you can get your hands on it
