Had the opportunity to try one of these and was pleasantly surprised.
 No bad gimmick beer aftertaste, very well done. Real stuff...

Only took in the first half because jobs but that's cool. There's still a lot of fear around what you can and can't say on a beer label tho. It's interesting/disheartening that the complaints come from other brewers. Maybe because they were playing by the rules, they felt like being shits about it.

And last week, I tried one called Pineapple Express IPA from Snake River Brewing, and it was mahty fahn. 

 
I love that because it's subtle. They have a Lime Lager version that's not as sturdy as the IPA. I wasn't as fond of it but it disappeared quickly... would be even better in hot weather. 
 
I'll look for that Snake River stuff because they do good work.
 
Stone's Tangerine Express has pineapple in it and chunks of fruit still in the bombers.

 
 
Uinta's Tangerine Hop Nosh is great. 

  
None of these taste "fruity" to me, not like one of those Shock Top frauds. Sometimes I get the orange scent when I'm pouring it but not really. Like you'd rubbed the rim of the glass with an orange rind maybe.

Except for the Lime Lager, they're all pretty high ABV.
 
Sierra Nevada makes a Tropical Torpedo IPA and a Sidecar, both are good but I only did the sampler pack so will have to do more research to decide whether I want to give a BUY recommendation

I like all of the New Belgium brews I've tried but I haven't tried that one yet.  I saw a few other citrus beers around from Uinta and Flying Dog (among others), but I haven't tried one yet.  I'll have to go to one of the stores that's lets you get a mixed six-pack.  The hot weather does call for different beers sometimes.

That's another one of those artsy Ransack The Universe Hemisphere IPA 6.8% beers I posted last month(?).

The booze store next town made more room in their walk-in fridge for craft beer.

your Baltika #9 gets reviews that are all over the map. Probably in part to shipping times and the age of the beer by the time it gets to where it's going.

 
Brewers' lament!
I recently took a part time job in a local wine/beer/spirits store.  Great selections.  I work with several local craft beer vendors. A big concern that most have voiced is that their stores should please properly care for the product. We try to do so.   I have frequently found what I believe to be "time and transit" factors sometimes affecting more distant brewers..e.g. Founders, Bell's, Boulder, Evil Twin, among many.  I taste what are widely regarded as fine brews, only to find something off-putting in some.

At 8% abv, a nice warm feeling after one bottle.

it immediately meets (at least) two of my three criteria

1) it's in a preferred container

2) after pouring i can see through it

3) if i see condensation it is probably cold

Yesterday  I got a Founder's Dirty Bastard, a Scotch Ale with some extra hops, not much though it weighs in at 50 IBU and 8.5% ABV,
The malty sweetness comes through real nice,  but not to sweet like some German dopplebocks

YES. A nice buzz on a cold winter's night. IIRC it has a bitter tang at the end of a sip.

This really hits home with me. For whatever reasons, I have had negative ideas or opinions of some customers without even having met them. Then one day i meet them, we chat for a minute or two, and i leave wondering why the f* did i have such 'bad' thoughts about them.

Human contact. An internet impossibility?

Thanks for the post. {#Cheers}

It's a fairly expensive little bottle. Eight dollars or more for 11.5 oz.
