DocLock (10702) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2015

luttonm (6276) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2015
12oz bottle in Seattle. Pale lemony yellow. Nice pungent lemony hop zest, very clean flavors, strong light-bodied dipa. Lemony citrus all the way through. Nice beer, super drinkable.

raphael (1254) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 24, 2015
A swampy smell, a little minty, mashed corn, light resin/ Paler yellow with thin white head. I re-check the label to make sure this isn’t a “Belgian IPA.” Tastes swampy too (no mention of fresh hops on label),, with straw, resin, alcohol, almost orange. Mixed palate and finish, with definite warming. I’m a good fan of Victory but this a little disappointing.

smith4498 (3647) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours clear dark golden color with white head. Aromas of tropical fruits and pine. Bitter grapefruit rind flavor with some peach, pineapple, pine and a touch of caramel malt. Medium body with average carbonation.

3.7
greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Light orange, no head. Strong aroma of citrus and floral. Floral is dominant in the taste, pungent. Not might favorite kind of hops, but very decent DIPA. ABV is noticeable, gut warmer.

3.7
flatmatt (1576) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2015
12 oz bottle, best by 24 May 2015. Pours golden with some fine particles and a white head. Spicy hop aroma, orange citrus. Juicy orange citrus hop flavor, spicy, a bit floral. Fresh and juicy, not so much strong or bitter. It’s pretty good.

kkleu357 (634) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Semi hazy light pale yellow body. Didn’t have much head. Wonderful pineapple floral aroma. Wow is this good. Lots of pineapple sweet taste. Excellent!

3.8
Thisis12ptfont (1192) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Aromas of hay, wheat, pines and dry hop resin. Appears a standard gold with a very thin foam head and decent lace. Taste brings a dry buttery hop overtone with notes of caramel, cracker malt, stone fruit, hay, grain malt, pines, hop resin and tangerine. Overall, more of dry IPA with less fruit taste and more bitter, piney, resinous hops. Interesting take on the style. A rating.

4.4
GenDV138 (7285) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2015
12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Enjoy by date of June 6, 2015 so likely bottled on January 6, 2015. Clear straw to golden yellow with a finger of off-white head. Aromas of floral, lemon lime, tropical fruit, grassy and pine. Tastes of nice tropical fruit, stone fruit, lemon lime and grapefruit citrus, floral notes, light pine. Well hidden alcohol. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, juicy mouthfeel. Delicious.

3.7
dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Tap at Owl Farm. Pours clear pale gold with very little head. Aroma is mango, jackfruit, kiwi, peach, honey, booze, light pine. Taste is slick and boozy mango and candied grapefruit with white grape, spirit-like heat, and slight woody pine on the finish. Tasty but somewhat sweet and bold.
