Boutip (6267) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral hops are clearly dominating with some notes of bitter hops are also clearly identifiable. Taste is also dominated by a complex and well built hop profile which provide a very good and complex mix between some citrus and bitter notes. Malt profile is kept very low in the mix but can still be felt. Full body with great carbonation. Quite a handful though and not your typical session IPA.

Thanks to BeerHawk for sharing this one at decaturstevos 2008 Zapit Tasing Tasting. Clear body of dark yellow with a fleeting white head. Piney hops well balanced by the malt. Nicely balanced that finishes with a nice smooth bitterness.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2009
500ml bottled on 11/19/08 from south bay drugs. poured into a pint glass. pours a bright, clear light yellow/orange, almost peach color like an authentic IPA, with a short, bubble white head. aroma is simply wonderful. huge, fresh hops, pine, floral notes of rose and tulip, and citrus with a touch of spiciness. flavor is equally delicious. big, juicy hops uf front with flavors of orange, lemon, apricot, and a touch of honey with solid bitterness. flavor is full bodied yet seems a bit delicate with a balanced roasted and sweet malt finish that lasts long after the swallow. palate is very smooth with light carbonation and perfectly easy to drink. great example of an IPA, just wish we could get it here on the east coast.

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2009
on tap at memphis taprooms- pours yellow with lots of visual carbonation. nose is full on hoppy goodness, but in the form of grapefruits and pineapples, a real tropical juice thing going on. taste is full bodied and glorious with all of the flavours mentioned above, really well balanced a gold standard for ipas.

Beerman6686 (6606) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2009
This poured a nice clear yellow to orange color with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma was just amazing, a cornicopia of hops really. Lots of different types it seems with smells of fruit/citrus, pine and grassy. Yumm. Flavor was just as impressive. Brutally bitter upfront with a nice smooth pine and citrus flavor, and then a really nice dry malty finish. Excellent beer and little brother to PLINEY.

alobar (3727) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Golden orange with color with a thin white head. Impressive nose of citrus, hops, and grass. Well-balanced flavor of grapefruit, hops, grass. Not an excessive hoppy bite. Very enjoyable!

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Crushed with JakeBra and CaryTheDude. Nose is amazing. Huge, herbal, grassy, citrus hops. Flavor is a bit subdued, perhaps from the age of the beer. Great nonetheless.

WOW! Courtesy Paiste2002, thanks man! Great IPA. Another reason I wish I lived on the west coast. Aroma was perfect. Strong grassy hops fill the nose. One of the best aromas Ive encountered in a beer. Pour was perfect as well. A nice light gold with a one finger off white head. A great IPA is truly pale. Light in color and this is just that. Taste was also great. Strong in the hops with little malt to muddy the water. Strong bitter hops that dry the mouth with strong grassiness with just a hint of citrus. Decent carbonation. Please CA people. Send me more!!

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Crushed with Jakebra and Honkeybra. Bottled 1/19/08. Was worried hops were dead. Huge nose, but not as much flavor. Still pretty damn good. Very, very thin bodied. Rerate, bottle 11-19-08. Same awesome nose. Flavor is much nicer, floral, bitter, and awesome. Absolutely a top IPA. Dug it much more fresh, naturally.

Tap at the brewpub. The body was cloudy dark gold with an off white head. The aroma was strong grapefruit with some peanuts and caramel. The taste was bitter grapefruit with peanut shells and burnt popcorn. I suppose I should try a bottled version, but this tap version had tons of burnt popcorn that threw off the entire package.
