pilgrimoutlaw (888) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2012
On tap Allentown Brewworks. Copper pour with foamy white head. Grapefruit, pine. A bit sweet. Relatively high bitterness. A little unusual in that the aroma comes out on the tail end. Crisp and dry body.

Gription79 (2879) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 24, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Huge hop nose, lots of grassy notes. Hint of sweet malts. Slight diacetyl. Astringent, oily, dry finish. Smells better then it tastes. This beer could use some work.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy apricot color with a huge creamy orange-white head that lingered and left incredible lacing. The aroma was sweet grapefruit, pineapple and pine. The flavor was bitter with a very strong grapefruit presence and moderate notes of pineapple and pine. Underneath were tangy malts, sugar, faint caramel and honey. The finish was long with grapefruit and pine lingering. Fairly full bodied. Well done.

ben4321 (6067) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 1/27/12

Aroma: The nose is rather hoppy with some grapefruit/citrus, pine, resin, and a little caramel
Appearance: It pours a cloudy, rusty orange color, a small off-white head and mid-heavy lacing
Flavor: Medium sweet up-front, it is strong on the grapefruit, and has a mid-heavy hop bitterness later on
Palate: The body of this one is medium, it is slightly sticky on the mouth, with a soft and fairly dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a fairly nice IPA. It does a pretty good job of living up to its billing, as it is bitter and hoppy. It has a pretty good flavor, with a nice citrus and resiny feel. This is a nice IPA for sure.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2012
(Bottle) Pours medium dark amber with an off-white head. The aroma holds typical hop notes of pine, citrus and tropical fruits. Also some currant/orange flavoured tea, white flowers and resin. Malt brings toasted caramel. The flavour is light sweet, near heavily bitter and light to medium acidic. Citric, resinous and floral. Malt stays in the background. The mouthfeel is clean and astringent with a light to medium carbonation. Long resinous finish. Light to medium bodied.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Aroma of grapefruit, sour funk, and slight pine. Very punguent. Pours orange with a small frothy head. Tastes more bitter with grass, spout citrus and funk. Very hoppy but not necessarily tasty.

JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Solid IPA and had bottle at brewpub as they ran out of the draft version. Plenty of citrus notes and some dryness which came from the dry hopping process. I disn’t relize this was a double ipa though as the bitter flavors didn’t seem too complex and the malt conte, however flavorful, didn’t seem that compact. I liked it but wish they hadn’t run out of hopsolutely.
