Can pour into nonic pint glass from Epsom Circle Market. Appearance is cloudy yellow-orange with fine light and dark particulates, decent sparkle and finger-width fizzy white head with fair retention and light soapy lacing. Aroma is strong tropical fruits, citrus with light pine. Taste is brief, initial sweet tropical fruit followed by strong resin bitter with grapefruit and a light herbal quality. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and mix of sweet and bitter, crisp, dry finish. Overall, there are bold flavors and aromas here with a decent amount of complexity. Nice. DiarmaidBHK (5649) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2017
Sampler at brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Solid citrus and floral hop notes on the nose and tongue. Finished with some fairly big bitter pine notes. Interesting. Slipstream (2677) - USA - APR 29, 2017
Draft from Whole Foods. Interesting brew for sure. It seemed like a British IPA to me but it it’s called an imperial pilsner/lager here. Sweet and grassy, medium weight, notes of lemon verbena, chamomile, capsicum, maybe saaz and fuggles. Clean on the palate with a mild after taste. A good one. mansquito (6787) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 21, 2017
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: pours deep golden with a white head. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruity. Taste is mostly fruity. Not very sweet or very bitter. Easy to drink. Pretty dank. gripweed57 (2794) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2017
16 ounce can. Hazy deep gold color. Large frothy white head. Nice clinging lace. Big dank hop aroma with citrus notes. Flavor upfront is intense complex hops. Resiny, dank and juicy. All this attention to hops is clearly evident. Notes of mint, lemon verbena, Thai basil, grapefruit and a late grab of toasted malt. Warming alcohol notes. Quite tasty, this one.

On tap at Hops Hill. Smells like a swimming pool. Really weird. Pours a golden amber. Malty, strong alcohol flavor. Good finish. Interesting. Tastes stronger than it is.

Canned 440ml. -Courtesy of Marko, shared with him and Iznogud. Orange/golden coloured, small white head, citrusy hoppy nose. Moderate malty, heavy fresh citrusy fruity hoppy and well balanced bitterness. Notes of alcohol as well but well rounded. Dry bitter hoppy finish. Really really good brew.
Best IPL ever! No really, it was that good. And I’m a big fan of the Mass Rising, but this was better. All about the hops with mild to moderate bitterness. Will grab even more of this next year.
