Beaver (1719) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a huge creamy rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is meloney citrus and piney, resiny, stinky hops.

The flavor is some sweet melon with a big resiny tarry, slightly charred hop finish with bitterness that dominates the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a good DIPA. Its definitely big in the hops - a bit to tarry / charred for me with a huge bitter aftertaste. The sweet fruits help to balance it a little, but not much.

jesperhammer (4482) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2011
13-JUN-2011, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer". Hazy orange with gigantic fluffy head that lasts and coats the glass. Extremely bitter nose with pine and grape fruit. Taste is much the same with orange peel and tropical fruits as well. Estremely bitter with a dose of malty backbone and a really really smooth body. I could drink this forever:) One of the best IIPAs I have had.

Goodgrief (2016) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUN 12, 2011
On tap. Light colored pour with frothy head. This is your stereotypical Sam Diego IPA. Lots of citrus hops, very dry in the mouth. Very similar in character to Pliny the Elder. Very nice.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 12, 2011
[Bottle] Clouded orange hue, a little lively out the bottle but enduring foam. Intensely aromatic hop aroma, orange and peach with some piney citrus. Some biscuity malt but failry light in body. The malt does provide a slight backbone but its predominantly anout the hops. Lots of grapefruit citrus lingering long and bitter in the finish, while theres just a touch of tropical fruit complexity.

This bar far has to be one of the biggest surprises for me. On a whim I tried this beer and have been stuck on it for months now. It is extremely floral with strong hints of bitter orange peel. I would recommend this beer first to hop heads.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle, 22 oz. Pours orange, large white head. Aroma is pretty much west coast hops all over this bitch, tangerine, orange, pineapple, tropical fruits and a wee bit of maltiness. Taste has the same, very nice hop profile, all west coast, still some sweet maltiness to create a rather full bodied IPA. Nice.

RasmusOtt (2563) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2011
Pours amber with a off white head. Aroma is juicy hops, orange, peach, pineapple, mango, forrest and light caramel. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, hops, yeasty notes, resin leading to a dry bitter end with a long duration.

Orange hue with creamy white lasting head, yeast particles must be unfiltered, smells sweet malt and orange citrus hops, some spice, not wildly bitter, medium creamy texture, very nice IPA, felt the alcohol
