vyvvy (6315) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Pours clear golden with a large white head. The aroma is very hop forward with floral, tropical fruits, tangerine and a bit of mildly sweet malt in the back - very nice. It has a medium lightly rough body with some gentle sharp carbonation. The flavor starts out super hoppy with grapefruit, tangerine, pine, spice and grass. There is some dry caramel and crackers in there as well. The finish is ultra dry with some sulfur added. Excellent IPA.

DialSquare (4802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2012
12oz bottle from Andersons in Sylvania. Gold pour with big white head and soapy stick. Aroma of apricot, pine and bread. Tastes are sweet caramel, bready, earthy hops, tropical citrus. Good, drinkable.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Nice amber color, with a bit of a haze to it. Serious hoppy pine notes (reminscent of Christmas trees). Great initial flavor of hops, pine needles, then lingers into grapefruit. A quick shot of sweetness, not overly bitter on the finish (surprising for an Imperial Pale Ale, as the neck label states).

pras (597) - Maryland, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Amber color, aroma was full of citrusy (grapefruit) and cat hopiness. Flavor followed through with a nice malt balance.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Pours a pale golden color with white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit and earthiness with caramel and hints of melon underneath. Has a sweet doughy taste with an earthy hop hit and resin and caramel on the back end. Good but not my bag. More like a 90 minute, but not as smooth.

Chudwick (3078) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - DEC 21, 2012
12oz bottle - pours clear gold with white head and decent lacing. Nose is citrus pine. Flavor adds hops. Dry bitterness all around. Sweetness? No clue. Medium body. Decent but a one trick pony.

HopTsing (574) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2012
From the tap came a lovely golden brew with very little white head. Floral hoppr aroma. Medium bodied with floral flavor with notes of honey and grapefruit.

Tap. Golden with nice pillowy white head and ample lacing. Nice piney, resiny, grapefruity aroma. Flavor follows with a bit of perfuminess. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a nice hoppy ending.
