dchmela (3055) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Bottle courtesy Bman1113VR. Pours a clear dark gold with a frothy white head. Really nice citrus, grapefruit, pine aroma, thick and resiny. Hoppy, resiny, citrus pine taste with a nice malt balance. The malt is just enough to let the hops shine through. A really nice well balanced IPA and very easy drinking.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - JAN 25, 2009
bottle from Whole Foods. Bottled on 11/19/08. Amazing sweet fruity complex hop aroma thats almost sweet like Belgian candi sugar. It all fits together very nicely. Nice dark golden color verging on amber with a good white head thats dense, holds and laces. Not in your face hoppy, but so smooth and balanced and flavorful - grapefruit, lemony citrus, pine, cali bud, doughy bready malt. Medium to light body, but I have to give this a 5 on palate because it is so silky smooth and so juicy feeling from the hops.

notalush (5856) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Growler - slightly hazy golden pour, with a soapy lace - crisp, grassy, wet hop aroma, with loads of pine, grapefruit, orange peel - earthy pine/grass and tangy citrus flavor - medium-bodied, but nice and crisp/clean - very lean maltiness allows those hops to shine - a really nice ipa.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2009
Hazy beautiful gold with a restrained and tight white cover. Basically, we have a spot on, archetypal Californian IPA loaded with flavours. A tasty earthy, sandy and especially orangey, fleshy IPA with no alcohol noticed and the tightest malt profile. Expressive hops have all the room they deserve, the presentation is classy, the drinkability is optimal. What more can one want besides having more bottles in the cellar?

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Lots of pine on the nose, a typical body and color for IPA, perhaps a touch more orange. Taste was solidly backed with a nice hop mix.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Draft: Poured a golden color with a small head. The aroma was pine and citrus. The flavor was very much pine with a hint of lemons. The hops were strong, but smooth and did not leave a strong bitter aftertaste when I was done. Overall, a really good IPA.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Bottle via trade with Stefanje. Pours a slightly hazed dark yellow/gold. Sticky white head. Nose is a bit sweet and fruity, I get stone fruits, mango, a light resin note and some minor dank. Taste is a fruity burst of apricot and then pine that drops into a nice crunchy bitterness and finishes dry and smooth, begging for more sips. Definitely tasty, a little fizzy in the mouthfeel department. Overall pretty nice.

anders37 (25809) - Malm, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2009
Draft @ the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Has a hoppy bitter piney citrus aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy pine needles and citrus flavor. Has a long hoppy bitter piney finish with a long bitter aftertaste. Nice!

malrubius (2835) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 16, 2009
500 ml 09/05/08 bottle in pint glass. Golden with lasting dense white head and lace. Pungent fresh orange citrus and a little pine aroma. Mild sweet honey biscuit with flowery hop flavor and piney resin bitterness. Medium body and carbo. Incredible balance, great flavor. This might be the perfect session beer.

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2009
On tap for Union Jacks Russian River Night. Poured a pale slightly hazy amber with a ring of white foam atop. Aroma was unadulterated pure fresh hops - not overly coniferous or citric rather like an actually freshly harvested hop; familiar and ineffable. Flavor was spruce and grapefruit juice however not overly bitter and cloying. It had the ideal ale body and refreshing terminus. An excellent IPA, it did however leave me thirsting for a Pliny the Elder.
