clayton49 (3) - Montreal, CANADA - DEC 1, 2016 does not count
Poured from the bottle. Clear brilliant orange, with medium off white head. Pleasant balanced aroma of hops - citrus, pine, pineapple - and caramel malted notes. Flavour really nice and balanced, tropical fruits and pine, with roasted sugar sweetness from the malt. Medium body, creamy smooth, but doesn’t linger. Bitterness is a slowly building one, and clean, that compliments the sweetness and alcohol so well that it becomes dangerously crushable at 8.2%. Iznogud (4359) - CROATIA - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle, 355 ml from Beergium. Shared with JFK10000. Pours clear orange with medium off-white head. Hoppy, citrus, grassy, malty, sweet, moderate bitterness in finish. Medium bodied. Guess not the freshest one since I expected more hops. Dandm (125) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2016

12 oz, bottle. Pours a hazy deep golden color with an off-white head. The aroma is dominated by West Coast hops. The flavor is as well with a perceptible hop bitterness and lots of hop oil. The malt body is thick and tastes like crystal/caramel malts. I am not a fan of American IPA´s, but I think that this is a very good one and those who do like this style will not be disappointed. It also delivers quite a kick at 8.2% ABV. The label lists the IBU´s at 72.41 which is way too exact. I have worked in the laboratory of a major brewery and can tell you that to keep the IBU´s to 72 is hard enough much less getting it exactly to two decimals. fletchfighters (1579) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2016
650 ml bottle
Clear light Amber color. Bright White head that falls to a collar.
Nose is orange marmalade, citrus, tropical fruits and Honey. Bright and aggressive nose.
Taste is pretty similar. Orange marmalade, citrus, tropical fruits and honey. Aggressively hopped. Feels bigger than 8.2%. slick and oily body but a bit sweet that lingers a bit too long

Bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear deep gold colour with one finger of soapy white head. Aromas of pine, herbs, and citrus. Taste matches the aroma. Citrus in the front with some bread note that leads to a surprisingly malty finish and well balanced hoppy after-taste. Medium bodies with moderate carbonation.

Poured in a Snifter glass, frothy almost 3-finger head.
Clear, amber coloured.
Aroma is marmelade, honey and citrus.
Taste follows the aroma pretty hard and fills the mouth with fruity honey sweetness and some lingering bitterness.
Like it’s little brother, it sticks to the palate for a long time which is really nice.

Orange blond body with white two finger head. The aromas are citrus,hops.I couldn’t smell much that particular day. The taste is quite bitter but there is a malt backbone that stands next to it and compliments the bitterness. josanguapo (1928) - SPAIN - OCT 24, 2016
