JohnGalt1 (1708) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Picked this up last night at Brewforia Meridian... Paid too much. Poured tonight into my HotD goblet with an off white head atop a slightly hazy orange brew. Nose shows big citrus but a very pronounced maltiness that really mutes the hops. Flavor mirrors the nose.. IMO, this is really not very good... pithy citrus hoppiness and a thick malt profile that doesnt jive with the brew. Body seems a bit thick... but I am thinking this could be an old bottle from Brewforia, wouldnt surprise me.

stantheman (956) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2016
Bomber from Liquor Barn in North Burnaby. A medium amber ale with generous white head and faint hop nose. Intensely bitter, slightly citrus fruity, decent malt background, long bitter finish. Crisp and refreshing. 4

average all the way through. while pleasant, the aromatics are just par for the IPA course. the flavor profile is lackluster as well with over the top hops. not to say this is a "bad" beer, just many better options in the Portland IPA scene.

Pours clear golden color with a small head. Resinous hops on the nose, pine, orange, some malts. Flavor is orange fruity, bitter malty, resinous hoppy, sweet caramel on the finish. Okay.

Stoned99 (1420) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2016 650ml bottle from Canada Craft Club. Aroma: intense grapefruits, pines, herbs and old hops mixed with big malt. App: cloudy copper, medium white head leaving good lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, fluffy and resinous, lots of grapefruits, malted and bitter finish. Overall: meh. Wonder if this bottle is old or just really malt forward. Anyway this is not my cup of tea. A west coast ipa not that pleasant to drink. Shouldve shared it instead of drinking 3 sips and dp the rest. Way too much based on grapefruits and malt.

Boutip (6097) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2016
Bottle: Poured an orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and light grapefruit notes with some bitter notes. Taste is a good mix of grapefruit and citrusy hops with some bitter hoppy notes and light residuals sugar notes with some good malt presence. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing earth shattering and maybe tad more bitter then I would like but still good overall.

robinvboyer (4314) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2016
Big sticky pine resins, and big, sweet, bready, boozy, caramelized malts. Oily mouth feel, sticky lacing on the glass, and a medium carb.. The finish is slightly woody, with some dank, resinous hops. Wet hop cones, hints of citrus, finishes is medium bitter with a strong sticky pine finish. This is a in ipa, bordering on double.

22 oz bottle from Tavour shared with drsordr. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, grassy, earthy, floral hops, hops seem old, some bitterness but I expected this would be better.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour avg to dark gold with moderate white head. Nose grassy, soapy, dank. Taste moderate bitter bite up front, then dank hop and light vegetal. Not as floral and aromatic as most Oregon IPAs that Ive had.

12 oz bottle. Dated 8/13/16. Assuming thats "best by" since its 2 weeks in the future. Very cloudy, slightly dark yellow/orange. Overly floral hops. Slight bitterness, especially on the aftertaste. I would say it tastes way too old, but within the stamped date range so Ill assume it was always subpar.
