Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - APR 21, 2014
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada Celebration pint glass. The color is a hazy Orange with yellowish highlights. There is a finger and a half of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is earthy hops with a spicy pine aroma on the edges. There is a slight dankness here in the nose. The taste has a nice sweetness at first with a citrus flavor that is mixed with tangerine and a slight hint of cherry. the bitterness comes out toward the back of this beer and pushed forward till there is bitterness building as it finishes. The feel of this beer is lighter then most IPAs and is pretty drinkable. This beer is quite refreshing and a pleasure going down.

From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Darksiders 2. Very oily, with an amazing resinous taste, feeling and aroma that makes you want to enjoy it slowly, sip by sip. A shame when finishes.

12oz bottle poured at home. Beer was a gift - bottle dated 10/26/16. I would assume the aroma has faded with the age of the bottle - but still a very tasty easy drinking IPA

migwell (331) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Somehow I failed to rate this although Ive been drinking it occasionally for years. Not my favorite because of the mildly bitter finish, but a good change from all the Lagunitas Sucks I customarily drink. Can into a Belgian ale glass, nice amber color with a lot of foam which recedes to a persistent thin white covering. Very attractive in the glass. Aroma is complex, malty, floral, citrus-y. The flavor is mild sweet malt, pine, some citrus and spice. It is complicated but very well balanced and enjoyable. Pretty classic left-coast style IPA.

beer-yum (1538) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 9, 2017
Floral aroma in an amber copper pour. Laid back hop forward balance with a sweet caramel malt body and restrained bitter finish. Definitely a distinctive take on the style that is different from either of the coastal (both east and west) versions.

maar (28) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2017
355 ml can. Full, piney, leafy and somewhat fruity aroma. Taste brings fruit such as mango, and a lot of piney, floral flavours. Malt sweetness hits you first and after that you get hit by the massive hop flavour. It blossoms out in your mouth and it feels very pleasant, it doesnt overwhelm at all. The taste lasts a long time and the mouthfeel is somewhat oily and with a medium body.

HuskerTan (2049) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Bottle/Fest. A- Caramel, bready, citrus. A- Golden orange color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Caramel, bready, citrus. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bready finish. O- A bit of a throw back style IPA. Heavy on the caramel and bready malt with a touch of citrus and a touch of bitterness. Not bad.

Botella en 99Cervezas. Precioso color mbar ajerezado perfectamente transparente. Espuma color vainilla de burbuja media y pequea, persistencia moderada y muy buena adherencia. Intensidad media en nariz, con una primera nota clara del lpulo, aunque delicada y nada agresiva. Notas de melocotones secos y agradables notas florales. Notas de miel muy al fondo. Complejidad media. Conjunto muy equilibrado aunque quiz demasiado suave para algunos. Primer sorbo impresionante, abriendo camino el sabor amargo pero seguido muy de cerca por un dulce ligeramente afrutado y tan expresivo como suave. El amargor es muy delicado y agradable, a la vez que muy presente. El equilibrio dulce-amargo es excepcional dando una IPA muy sabrosa y delicada a la vez. Ligera en boca, algo acaramelada y al tiempo ligeramente picante. Muy muy refrescante. El dulce gana presencia conforme evoluciona en boca, alcanzando un equilibrio excelente. Persistencia media muy adecuada. Una IPA de ms de 7% ABV que no se nota alcohlica en absoluto y tiene una tremenda bebestibilidad. Total y absolutamente recomendable. Un portento de cerveza de la que muchos pueden aprender, pues no es nada fcil conseguir estos equilibrios.
