Clareeses (58) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 17, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 Can purchased at Gomers. Moderate carbonation, full mouthfeel. Heavy on the hops initially, finishes with a hint of wheat. Fresh and crisp, yet still bitter so you get that classic ipa taste.

12 oz bottle: BBD 23rd Mar 17. Drank at my Son-in-Laws (in California) on 25th Jan 17. Really enjoyed it. Golden amber body, off-white head. Hops rule the roost with an unequal measure of citrus and piney aromas and flavours, light malty undertones help to balance out the beer nicely.

Bottle. BBE date Oct 2016; Drank Sept 2016 - Hazy Orangey Gold in colour. Large foamy off-white head. Fantastic lacing. Very Fruity; zesty grapefruit and orange citrus, peel, rind. Hoppy; resinous piney hops, dank and rather herbal. Spicy; mildly peppery. Malty; bready malts, caramel/toffee. Good fruit/hop/spice/malt balance. Bittersweet citrus fruity hoppy throughout. Assertively bitter fruity hoppy and dry into finish. Excellent considering so near to BBE date. Enjoyed this. Good stuff. Solid IPA! (2016-09-29)

Can. Beauteous beer in the copper-orange vicinity. Also nails mouthfeel and aroma. The flavor brings the less grapefruity side of citrus, and Im getting only a touch of pine. Doesnt feel like 80 IBU to me either, but maybe I got an older, faded can. Almost too easy. Nice enough malt body though. Pretty good, and it is nice to see Utah get in on the beer action.

visionthing (5015) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2017 35,5cl bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours clear deep golden to amber with an off-white head. Rather intense hoppy, dominated by citrus, pine and herbs, some fruity notes, malt and hints of grass. Moderate to medium sweet with quite intense hoppy flavours and an almost harsh bitterness. A bit over the top for my case, but fair enough,

355ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clearish dark amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Sweet, malty, farty, bit of alcohol in aroma. Sweet, alcohol, malty, caramel in taste. Alcohol, sweet and malty in aftertaste. Messy brew.

Ewww, stinky harsh hop aroma, sweet malts too. Tastes similar, stale over-stewed black tea. Harsh bitter palate, sweet and sticky too. Highly unpleasant beer, nothing right about this at all.
