12oz can. Pours a clear gold-ish copper with a minimal white head. Hoppy aroma that is more dank than crisp. Good hop flavor, but thin and kind of flat.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Pours like you’d expect a canned beer to pour: Very foamy. The beer itself is actually pretty decent. Could use a little more hoppiness, but other than that, it’s quite good for the style. There is a honey flavor in the body that adds a little welcome sweetness. Sorry, but the can just doesn’t do it for me; I think I would’ve enjoyed this a little more (at least for psychological reasons) if it was bottled. Overall, good to very good.

popery (1455) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Clear amber liquid with a compact soapy head. Slightly better aroma than flavor. Hops are floral, piney and citric in that order. A tad too bitter in the finish. Well, perhaps not too bitter but not rich enough to support the bitterness. Some good oiliness. A pretty good IPA that I feel guilty for not supporting more as its from my hometown. I like the can.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective tasting on 12/10/08: Thanks to Homerwantsbeer for sharing a can. The beer pours a clear light amber-yellow color with a medium thin and creamy light beige head that diminishes slowly. Sticky sheet of lacing on the glass. Citrusy hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of grapefruit and hops, malt and pine. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness left behind. Pretty good all around.

DSG (6332) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 30, 2008
(10/27/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in San Francisco. Menu says 7.0% ABV. Clear deep golden to amber color. Aroma of floral hops, some piney notes and citrus. Sweet malty flavor at first with some caramel and bready notes. Continues bitter and hoppy with some fruitiness and citric notes. Rounded-mouthfeel. A very balanced IPA. Tasty.

TheEpeeist (3399) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2008
12 oz can. Crystal clear amber with a pillowy white head. Nose is orange, caramel, grapefruit and dough. Crisp medium light with sharp carb. Taste is caramel, grapefruit and club soda. Dry, earthy finish with wet hay; a bit metallic. Something off with this brew but not bad.

illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Poured into a pint glass. Hazy peach color with a decent off-white head. Some filmy lacing. Aroma is pretty nice, lots of lush tropical fruit. Flavor is underhopped and not nearly bitter enough. Toasty malt with overripe pineapple and a bit of tannin. Finish has a short bitterness more fitted to an APA than an IPA. Just under medium-bodied, with a good crisp carbonation level. Very average beer. Yet to be impressed by this brewery.
