maneliquor (3508) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2011
Pours a golden straw with a two finger white head. Aromas of hops with a big citrus hit (lemon, lime, orange). Has loads of citrus in this one, grapefruit in there. Backed by pale malts and finishes with a great bitter hit. Still not sure if I like this one more or Andersons Hop Ottin more

Maris (1439) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2011
From a 650ml bottle on 22/1/2011. Pours a cloudy pale golden colour. Has nice a sweet fruity (nectarine and peach) hop aroma. Flavour wise, this reminds me a lot of Brewdogs Punk IPA. Grapefruit bitterness dominates, with other citrus fruits (orange and lemon) also present. The hops are big and linger appropriately. This is a high quality IPA.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Bottle. Poured a hazy orange color with a smaller white head that went quickly. Did leave lots of lacing on the side of the glass as it went. Aroma was hops, pines and spruce. Flavor was pretty well balanced. Malty backbone and hops in the finish. Kind of soapy and oily. An above average beer.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint, 6oz bottle into a pint glass. The bottle has nice list of ingredients use including the malts and hops. The IBUs are listed at 70 but there is no ABV% or freshness date. Appearance: The liquid is hazy and has a medium amber color with a tall three to four finger head on top. Its just off white in color and holds on well, slowly fading to a light covering that makes cool lace rings all the way down the glass. Smell: Hops fill the nose with notes of lemon and lime citrus over herbal notes, green tobacco leaves and pale malt. Taste: The solid medium to full body sports a spicy mix of citrus and dank herbal hops on a base of pale mildly sweet malt. It finishes with slow lingering hop bitterness. Carbonation is well balanced giving it a smooth yet lively feel. Notes: Overall its s solid IPA.

arkurzynski (2358) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Hazy amber with frothy, off-white head, served at Wisconsin basement temperature. Pine northwest hops, grapefruit, lemon citrus, pale and caramel malts. Up front, even bitterness that trails off, yet resides. Slight fruitiness and malt that is apparent, but mostly silent. Brilliant IPA that is extremely easy to drink. Kudos.

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
The beer poured pale golden and a little cloudy. The head developed thick and fluffy at a thickness of about 2.5 fingers in my tulip glass. There was lengthy head retention and lots of rope-like lacing on the glass. The aroma was of floral and citrus hops. Much of what you would expect from a high quality IPA. You can tell from the smell that this beer was brewed with American hops. These hops are usually very floral and citrusy especially grapefruit. The taste delivers on what you expect from the aroma. It is loaded with citrus and floral notes and does taste like grapefruit. There is a good deal of bitterness from the hops that is balanced out by a solid base from the malts. The bitterness lingers and has really nice finish. Mouthfeel was smooth with moderate carbonation and effervescence. It was medium bodied. I found it to be very easy to drink but I think it had a bit much for me to consider this beer a session beer.

Tap. Could stand for a better balance of hops. Aroma was not floral or citrus like better IPAs. Taste was better. Decent hop flavor but not well balanced.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Poured a very cloudy dark yellow with a fingers worth of head. The aroma is extremely citrusy with some pine as well. The taste is heavy on the hops with a strong aftertaste of lemon peel. It almost bites into your palate. Not the most drinkable beer but certainly leaves its impression. Very similar to a wet hop beer.

pinkzambia (1928) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Growler: Copper, apricot color, thick and cloudy brew. Musty aroma of hops, peanuts, and a bit of rubber. Good solid IPA flavors with a smooth. To quote my friend Cody, "big hops, low bite" which make it easy to drink, but still maintain its integrity. Pretty nice. Thanks Cody!

Allara (148) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2011
22oz bomber. Hazy golden yellow/orange color with thin white head. Very apparent earthy, semi-citrusy hop aroma. Smooth, medium body beer that starts out semi sweet, moves to slight bitterness and ends with slightly bitter citrus/earthy notes. Great IPA, not too over powering and definitely doesnt coat your tongue, overly dry out your mouth. A very enjoyable IPA for someone who isnt crazy about crazy dry/bitter hopped beers but enjoys the flavor and aroma aspects of an hops. Overall (B+)
