LinusStick (3462) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2011
On tap at Ginger Man, Houston. A nice strong hoppy beer. Aroma was big and green. All citrus, grapefruit rind and a hint of earthiness. Pour was a medium gold with a few rising bubbles and no head. Taste was very one dimensional (in a good way). The hops block out anything else trying to poke through. A slight sweetness of pale malt squeaks through in the middle, but for the most part this beer is bitter and dry. The cheeks are left bone dry after the swallow. Only problem with this beer was the weak carbonation. Other than that, nice tasting beer

Can. Pours a dark, dark red-orange with a cream-colored, large-grained head. Nose is grapefruit, rosemary, and menthol. A lot of hops on the open, but balanced well with a pleasant orangey malt on the midpalate, Finishes smooth and clean. This is very, very good.

Golden orange form a green can. Burnt candy caramel and tropical fruits. Not too thick but it is sticky, sweet and bitter.

devilben02 (281) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Pours from the can with a very hazy orange color, and a modest but sticky eggshell-white head. This is certainly not the most fragrant IPA, but the aroma is pleasant, with a decidedly hop-forward combination of wildflowers and oranges over a subtle backbone of bread and caramel. Nicely bitter in the flavor but certainly more balanced, characteristics of grapefruit and flowers are big without (drastically) overpowering the underlying caramel sweetness. The texture is moderately resinous, with a glimmer of the citrusy bitterness lingering long after each sip. Overall, this is a flavorful yet highly drinkable IPA.

rougeau13 (3020) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Clear, slightly on the dark side of amber, with a puffy little off-white head that leaves a nice sheen of lacing. Aroma of citrusy, resiny and floral hops and caramel and pale malts. The taste is quite well balanced; smooth malt leading to a moderately bitter finish. Medium bodied and slightly dry. Solid all around IPA.

3.6
JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Souped up IPA with great flowery leafy aroma but flavor is above average with a lots of leafy (like iceburg lettuce) hop juices which don’t seem to balance well with the biscuity malt backdrop.

3.9
thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2011
Can at Olympen. Amber, lacing head. Intense grapefruity hop nose. Citrussy hop bitterness matched by caramel maltiness, remaining very bitter. State-of-the-art IPA.

Ungstrup (37676) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2011
Can. An amber beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of hops and some malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, malt, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish.

dnstone (3418) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 24, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2012 Copper color with off-white head and excellent lacing. Super floral-hoppy aroma and taste. This beer is maybe one of the best rounded beers I have ever had, and had become my "go-to"; pours amazingly, full aroma, balanced middle aroma (full-bodied, without being too much so), great tastes, good amount of alcohol (more than 6%, not too much), comes in a six pack and at a great price point. A great IPA, you would be hard-pressed to find a better combo of qualities.

arminjewell (9676) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Poured out of can into pint glass, nice orange-amber color with beautiful fluffy white head, laced extremely well throughout. Aroma is big juicy notes of pine, citrus, grass, even more citrus, with slight notes of caramel, touch of bread. Taste is full of orange, grapefruit, some slight tropical fruit, lemon, nice big resinous and piny notes, going into a slightly sweet section with some caramel and spice notes, finishing bitter but not overwhelmingly so, and slightly dry. Great stuff.
