VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle/12oz - Pours a darkish orange amber in color with a medium white head that settled to a thin covering over the top of the beer and produced some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is slightly sweet with plenty of caramel malts and some bready yeasts. The star is, of course the citrus/grapefruit and milder of pine resin hops. Flavor is hoppy, but not nearly as bitter as I expected from the aroma. Nice hop flavor... lingering mild bitterness into the end... extremely well balanced. Love it...

(Bottle) Pours dark amber with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is of pink grapefruity and resinous woodsy hops. Sticky malt backdrop alongside a hint of frozen strawberries. The flavour is light to medium sweet, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic. Soapy, citric, woodsy, resinous, earthy and light toasted caramelly. The mouthfeel is round and tart (from the hops) with a light to medium carbonation. Lingering finish. Medium bodied.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle. Hoppy, bright grapefruit aroma, very clean and crisp. The appearance was a dark honey, darker than other IPAs Ive sampled, and the pour was highly carbonated. Lots of loose lacing as I drank. Very flowery, citrus taste with an initially soft palate that yielded to a sticky, sweet aftertaste. A high quality IPA for sure.
