Strykzone (7127) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle from Hayduke. This pours with some haze in the darker golden beer. A sticky lacing remains after the foam falls. Some classic IPA aromas of citrus and tropical fruits combine to make what could be something that hangs from a cars rear view mirror. The blast of hops tasted is much bigger. They seem to be both wet and dry. Malts are there and are big but the focus here is on hops. I like it.

ryecatcher (1404) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy, golden-orange, smallish white head, so-so retention (no idea how fresh this bottle is). Nose is some citrus, oranges mainly, but more malt than hops. Mouth is medium-full bodied, citrusy hops and malt up front, some hints of peach and mango, then some toasty bread, pineapple and a medium dry finish and a real lack of bitterness considering all the hops proclaimed on the label (again, no idea how old this is). Not bad, but certainly not the massive sensory overload I was promised.

jredmond (8006) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle shared with Linh. Pours a bright orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is malty bread and light grapefruit hop. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of bready malts, grain and light bitter grapefruit hop. Seems past its prime, so would love to try this on draft or fresher.

crossovert (12125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Half liter bottle. Pour is deep gold/amber. The smell is resiny and citrusy, very fresh and clean. The flavor is rather dry. Big lemon characteristic as well as a light sweet malt backing. It is definitely not bad.

Art (3205) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle thanks to Sledutah. Pours a clear orange with a frothy white head. Aroma of tangerine and some malt. Taste is quite bitter with a slight sweet flavor in the aftertaste. Lightish body with an effervescent mouthfeel.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pours yellowish orange out of bottle. Nose is of of sweet citrus fruit and some pale pine hops. Mouth feel is clean and smooth. Taste is of mild citrus fruit and mellow pine hop. Finish is bitter. All in all pretty easy drinking and found the beer quite enjoyable.

DiarmaidBHK (4456) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle from Utah Liquor store. Pours golden with a thin white head. Has a nice citrus thing on the nose. A bit of grapefruit on the tongue with a some solid hoppiness of the finish. Hides its alcohol well. Not bad.

Fruity grapefruit nose. Crisp and clean finish, taste of citrus, grapefruit, and slight orange. Very easy to drink. Mild bubbles with a hint of tartness and fresh hoppy note.

Half liter bottle from Ale Yeah! Pours a.... GUSHER! Pours a clear amber color with a monstrous foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. The taste is citrus and piney hops, grapefruit, mild toffee malts and something slightly off.
