fiulijn (20221) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver; 7.8% ABV
Cloudy orange color with small head. Nice aroma of hops, delicate, citrusy. Dry, lean, toffeish, with strong bitterness, soft resins, and plenty of citrus fruits. This 1 IPA is fresh and dangerously drinkable!

Alphadelic (2219) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Boom. A big, fresh, weedy aroma turning to juicy tangerine. Smooth with a mild bitterness amongst the sweetness of the malt. Very good stuff really. Warm in my belly.

demitriustown (1188) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bomber: Aroma is big on hops, and no discernible malt notes in the scent. Appearance is a lightly reddish hue with a thick white head that lingers. Taste is got those hops but more subdued than in the aroma. Palate is medium carbonation with an aftertaste of hard candy and hops. Overall, Its alright. I dont like the hops in this one for some reason. Cheers!

Ferris (14373) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle - Big candy malts and piney hops with a touch of booze. Clearish orange/pink with an off white rich but small head. Big piney hops, with balancing sweet malts but the candy boozy finish is a medicinal. Not bad, but the finish doesnt sit well with me.

superspak (5306) - Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2013
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, pineapple, floral, grass, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, light pine, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and very balanced hop/malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, lemon zest, pineapple, pine, floral, grass, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, floral, pine, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish. Good hop balance and complexity; with a moderate malt backbone and minimal cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly slick and sticky mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a solid Double IPA. Good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; and quite smooth to sip on. An enjoyable offering.

reebtogi (6141) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
650ml bottle pours a deep golden orange color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some pretty darn good lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild but pleasant with some grains and citrus and a hint of pine. Taste is dominated by a grapefruit bitterness with some pine underneath followed by a grainy malt sweetness with some lighter sweet fruits underneath. Light to medium bodied with some decent carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the tongue. A highly recommended IPA which is nicely balanced and not too over the top. May not satisfy a true hophead, but still really good nonetheless.
