On tap at Sour and Bitter 2012. Pours a clear yellow with a medium white head. Very bitter with a moderate sweetness. Lots of sprucey hops aromas garnished with pine and resin. Also a bit of grain aromas. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Long bitter finish. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Tap at Pizza Port San Clemente. Oh yesssssss. Clear light golden to bright yellow pour with no specialty malt BS. Sheety, complete 360 white lace. Nose is ultra dank citrus hops with lemongrass, tangerine, pineapple, unrripe mango. Softer nose with tremendous hop fruitiness. Taste is super grassy bitter, quenching, very nutty with no specialty malt stickiness, no cheese, no stale toffee, no old caramel. Pineapple and tangerine heavy with loads of bitter curacao and grapefruit pith. So many great IPA characteristics. None of the typical IPA flavors that I am starting to hate. So fresh and clean. Thank you Ryan whoever you are!

On tap at Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach. Pours with a lightly hazed golden hued body with a frothy and retentive egg shell hued head that leaves great lace. Great West Coast IPA aroma, very fresh smelling. All hops: tropical fruit, tangerine, mango, light resin, and dank overall. Minimal malt with a light toasted graininess (nearly nutty). Flavors are fruity, with a light sharp (almost out of place) character malt grainy quality (not crystal, but a higher toasted malt, almost victory like, but probably darker munich). Lots of tropical fruit, resin, kind of amarillo like among others. Light pine and citrus. Lively bubbles, dry. Finishes with a lasting, medium bitterness (although it is a firm bitterness up front). Great beer. Defreni (3325) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
Fad: Gulorange klar øl med et lille skumhoved. Fantastisk duft af mango og igen kendetegnet af lidt eksotisk frugt. Daym Pizza port kan lave IPA. Kan se i mine noter at jeg begyndte at kamme lidt over i superlativerne, men kan man andet når man får serveret så solidt håndværk der bare smager?

Draft on tap at Three Floyds (Munster, IN). Pours a richer amber orange hue, gentle haze dies to a more transparent body. Frothy offwhite head sits atop and laces ok. Aromas are potent with fresh citrusy hops, grapefruit, melon and florals with touches of bread, straw. Firm florals and bitter hops. Fresh, vibrant, citric with nice alpha bitterness. Lovely. Initial is dry, bitter, rich hop elements with bready malts, melon, soap and rind elements. Richly bitter, citric, with nice rich potent hops. Gentle bready, touches of straw, sopap and rind elements. Touches of melon, straw. Quite lovely, potent, and fruity. Dry, richly bitter, quite drinkable. Nice stuff, fresh and lively with potent hop elements.
