On tap at the Boise pub. Hazy redish amber with a small white head. Malty and mild. Malty and fairly bitter. Not quite IPA levels. Balanced and a bit woody notes also. Fairly soft and full palate. Pretty good. My first draft at the new Boise site.

Bomber thanks to Mike. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A great fruity and rye nose. The flavor is big sweetness, spicy rye and hops, oranges, lemon zest. Very good. Super drinkable.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice rye flavors and aroma. Good hops backing. This was one beefy malty beer this could be a meal.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
In short: A well malted rye-forward and very hoppy-bitter IPA. Tasty.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase.
The look: Clear dark amber body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: Nose is unstably rye-forward with dank coniferous hops, like slices of rye bread covered with wet pieces of pine tree and pine needles picked up from a wet forest floor. Tasted has plenty of toasted rye (strong toasted rye bread sensation), some juicy liquefied caramel, a generous assertive piney and grapefruity hopping, a biting bitterness of medium-high intensity, a mild lemony acidity. Surprisingly corpulent for a 6.5% clean IPA. Pleasant full body and well levelled carbonation. Well balanced but this beer is a bit too sweet and too bitter to be a session beer, this is more a tasty IPA than a refreshing one. If you like rye-forward beer and if you like bitter American IPAs, this one won’t disappoint you. I wrote this rating late at night, not sure if it can be trusted, I’d like to delete my drunken ratings if only I could tell them apart from my sober ones.

Dogbrick (9109) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Sample at the Memorial Day Deck Beers tasting on 05/27/2013: The beer is a hazy amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, rye and roast malt. The finish is hoppy with a spicy aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
