Almost frozen from a poundre can. Drank right fromt eh can. Cold as ice. Barely any co2. Bitter initial impact like an IPA. Slight hop perfume nose. Yes, in the end this is almost an IPA if it is not one form the start. ClarkVV (6642) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2017

Clear, drab brass with a medium-sized white head showing moderate to moderately-low retention.
Fruity and fairly aromatically hoppy in the nose, with a West Coast tilt that adds moderate pine and strong grapefruit, though it doesn’t get resinous/sour. Malts are sparse and remain in the background, adding typical biscuit and very light hints of caramel. Clean, no alcohol noted.
Well-carbonated with a moderately malty, well-attenuated texture with notes of honey and light caramel. Leafy, coniferous, green hops begin with light pine and lemon and slowly move to a stronger grapefruit flavor. Fairly crisp finish helps disperse some of the hops acids and overall it remains quite drinkable and clean.
Backlog from GBBF 2016, big grapefruit nose, then hoppy but too sweet for my liking. Theydon_Bois (19200) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2016

GBBF Day 1. Cask. After a frustrating 3 hour wait - the US bar finally opens and is immediately swamped! Clear gold beer, good white head. Sweeitish pale malts. Great juicy tropical fruits. Mild citrus. Modest citric peel bitterness. Great tropicals in this one. First US beer of the day and already the hopping levels are a league above.
