hershiser2 (2332) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber/peach with a small beige head. Heavy hops in the nose: pine, grapefruit, mango juice. Taste is very ripe mango, pine, soap, grapefruit peel. Nice malt blend at the end to throw in a bit of caramel. Tasty.

Nickls (2417) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle. Hazy bright gold. Piney, grapefruity hops, with some cracker and malt backing for both flavor and aroma. Kinda old school, with dry bitter hoppiness in the finish. Balanced.

OrthoDoc (189) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Not my type of IPA. Has very earthy and slightly floral smell very similar to Hoppyum IPA. Strong on the malts, mild on the hops, with decent bitterness and sweetness. Decent but won't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled from a bottle. Pours amber colour with a white head. Fruity, hoppy aromas, and a taste of mango, citrus and pine from American hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Very nice, fruity pale ale.

Turboninja (570) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2016
[email protected], from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Medium, bold, organic and complex aroma of slightly overaged mango and a hint of parfymic notes. Copper color with small/medium white head and medium hazy liquid. Medium, slightly bitter taste of overaged mango, pine, citrus and hops. Some malts can be recognized and a hint of earthy flavors. Balanced with medium taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste with sweet malts. Light/medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, clearly American style IPA but in very organic, earthy fashion. Good.

tillmac62 (688) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2016
BBD 11/17/15. Cloudy medium amber pour. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Very good nose of floral hops, light rind, pine and caramel. As it warms, a hint of dank is detected. Light body that is slightly smooth. Normal carbonation level with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a bit more in the finish. Very nice flavor profile that approaches outstanding. Hop flavors are the main focus coupled with mild bitterness. A nice biscuit and caramel provide exceptional balance from the middle on. Pine and orange rind are the dominate flavors with a hint of spicy spruce towards the finish. Alcohol remains well covered until it appears in the lingering finish of pine and orange rind.
