ACHops (1548) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2016
500 ml bottle, served in a tulip glass. Pours hazy bright copper with thick, fluffy off-white head. Aroma is rich, sweet caramel malt; just a hint of earthy vegetal hops. Taste is clean, rich, syrupy caramel malt; dank grassy hops with a bit of pineapple on the finish. Fairly boozy, relative to the 8% abv. Decent DIPA.

robinvboyer (4425) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2016
Bright copper pour, medium white head. Nice aroma of citrus zest, oranges, and some solid pine resin. Good mouth feel, and carb. The finish is where this goes off the rails. It finishes with a medium bitterness and a super strange plastic/rubber flavour. Like opening up a new tire tube from its box. It just takes over and dominates. Couldnt finish it.

Golden color out of the bottle with a short lived off white head. Sharp nose of citrus peel and resin. Very well balanced caramel sweetness, coarse bread and lots of red grapefruit, resin and pine hops. Not as strong as some but very drinkable.

Not a fan of IPAs but this one is drinkable. Starts out a little bitter but mellows out after a few pulls. Plenty of hoppy flavor slight after taste good head.

Bottle thanks to gription. Nose is full of citrus rind, lots of grapefruit. A very clear, light orange color with a medium sized head. Pithy smelling. Taste is immediately bitter with a harsh, rough flavor, very piney hop flavor and keeps finishing with a very rough around the edge bitterness. Hits a peppery not in the throat at the end. Hides the alcohol well at least. Just needs a smoother bitterness.

Pours golden and clear with a full white foamy head. Nose has high hop aroma with mild floral and spicy notes. Slight sweetness in taste but dry and bitter finish.

My favorite beer. As a hop head, this has enough hops to hide the alcohol content, and yet still provides a nice floral finish.

Bottle split on the booze buse during RBWG 15 - thanks to Craig?, 20/02/15. Golden orange with a moderate off white cap. Nose is pissy citrics, skunky hop, caramel malt, bitter orange. Taste comprises pine needle, mango, straw, tangerine. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with licks of hop bitterness. Decent DIPA.

hopscotch (10992) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle... RBWG 2015 Pours mostly clear and amber with a small, fleeting, white head. The aroma provides stone fruits and a big-time medley of citrus fruits tangerine, grapefruit and orange come immediately to mind. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is all about heavy, citrusy, rindy bitterness. Theres a sturdy malt backbone here, but it provides little flavor, just a viscous body a durable platform for the hops. Lengthy, bitter finish that dries out.
