dlovell2 (1969) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Pours a yellow golden color with a white head. Big citrus and floral aroma with mango, pineapple, onion, and pine resin. Oily mouthfeel. Flavor starts out malty with oranges, mango, and pineapple followed with a floral/herbal hoppiness and finished with a big dry pine resin hoppy bitterness. This brew is packed with lots of fresh hoppy flavor.

toxichop (597) - South Gate, California, USA - JAN 10, 2015
P: Golden with a light haze, lean towards a yellow straw with a very thin white head. S: Very floral beer, honey, light pine, a touch of mango, some grapes and a hint of malt. T: Once again very floral, a touch of mango with some grapes, honey malt, a bit of garlic/onion with pine bitterness in the end. M: Medium body with somewhat high carbonation. It is rather dry with a pine-y bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden. O: Good beer, pretty balance and easy going for the most part.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle: Clean golden hue with good head and lace. Very juicy with pink grapefruit, pineapple, dragon fruit, blood orange rind. Pretty dank too but not to an extent that makes it harsh. Some light metallic and aspirin-y finish. The malt bill is light and unassuming. Nice hop forward brew

12 ounce bottle from johns. Pours a mostly clear orange yellow color with a medium white head. A light citrus and grainy nose. The flavor is orange peel, lemons, pils malt, honey, bitterness all through the beer. Very flavorful and tasty. Light to medium resin. Solid.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazed golden with a thick, white head. The head fades to a rim around the glass. Mild lacing. Aroma of peaches, cherries, tangerine and grapefruit. Mild pilsner malt. Flavor is fruity, lots of hop flavor. With medium bitterness in the middle. Mild sweetness towards a bitter hop finish. Very nice DIPA.

ElCapitan22 (360) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours a cloudy hay color with some nice lacing. Smells slightly floral and hoppy, but not overwhelmingly so. A good beer, but all its characteristics bring the score down.

tillmac62 (694) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2015
BBD 5/24/15. Pours a clear light amber (golden). However, the bottom of the bottle pour produces a some flocculants. Normal head volume, lacing and slightly below normal retention. Nice nose of sweet blended tropical fruit over a light orange rind note. Light medium body with a good bit of oiliness to the texture. Well carbonated with a good effervescence in the middle and more in the finish. The outstanding flavor profile is intense (hop flavor forward), extremely well balanced and complex. It begins with an effervescent burst of blended hop flavor (tropicals such as mango, pineapple, but never really separates). This flows into a moderate bitterness in the middle that contains a slight pepper note. As the bitterness fades, a biscuit sweetness emerges with hints of orange. The finish is a slow fade into a lingering orange zest flavor bitterness and a slight nice alcohol warming at the back of the throat.

BillKismet (3954) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Straw-blonde body with a haziness to it, all topped by an etiolated head. Hairy hop aroma with puissant cattiness and rounded out by essence of peach schnapps. On the palate, this brew almost overwhelms with juicy, candied grapefruit bursts and some winces of cattiness. An in-your-face hop bomb. Acidic grapefruit finish.
