pintocb (652) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Wow, this may be the cloudiest IPA I’ve tried. Incredible hop presence in the nose. Lots of pine and citrus. The flavor is slightly out of balance toward the hoppy side, but hell, its an IPA. Very tasty.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Pours reddish amber with a medium white head and good lace. Smells sweet and fruity, nice blend of malts and hops. Tastes well balanced between the malts and the hops. Slight caramel, slight fruit hop bitterness builds and lingers. Some earth. Medium body, nice smooth carbonation.

NachlamSie (3297) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. This is one murky and dark looking IPA. It’s almost brown with a white head. The aroma is amply hoppy with assertive notes of grapefruit, orange, and pine. The palate is medium light and lacks any strong malt flavor. This allows the citrusy and spicy hops to come to the forefront. This was enjoyable.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a bright hazy orange with a small bubbly head that recedes quickly and leaves scant lacing. The aroma is dominated by hops with a combination of floral pine and citrus in the form of juicy oranges and pineapples. The taste is bigger than the aroma suggested. There is some bitter sappy pine up front with lots of juicy citrus following it up. Oranges, pineapples, maybe some grapefruit. The finish has a lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is slick with a fairly low carbonation. It’s medium bodied overall and leaves a sticky sap resin aftertaste. This a decent hop-forward IPA that’s very drinkable but maybe a tad low on carbonation. Still, very good.

Hazy orange, whitish cover. Aroma is toasty, husky malts. Taste is sweet caramel, sugar, toast, not much bitterness or hops.

CheersMate (1340) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2009 Fairly good IPA. My brother and I had this on tap after an experience with the APD. Anyways, nice haze dark orange color. Nice hoppy aroma for an IPA. Nice citrusy hop IPA aroma. I will not lie, I was in a different condition while trying this beer. The beer had a nice hop profile; it had a nice smooth citrus and hop flavor. I am very surprised this came out the way it did. Left some decent lacing, but overall this is a very flavorful IPA with a lot of nice bittering hops as well as citrus hops to round everything out.

A comparison of two casks: one tapped 24 hours prior and dry-hopped with Centennial, Cascade, and Chinook and one tapped only minutes ago dry-hopped with the rarely-used Zeus hop variety. Appearance: Both arrived an opaque, mahogany-hued body, though the prior cask offered up a bit of a muddled appearance, being one of the very last pours from the firkin. Each sported a dense, creamy-looking, light beige head. Smell: Caramelly maltiness with a slight bready bent to it. While each had a fair amount of grassy tones, the cask dry-hopped with the 3C’s had notes of white grapefruit and lemon, while the Zeus had fresh floral tones paired with grapefruit lightly dusted with spice. Taste: Light touches of chewy caramel candy from the crystal malts with further hints of crisp grains and bread. The cask dry-hopped with a melange of C-hops had a nice earthy, grassy character and a bold citrus taste. The just-tapped Zeus cask was floral, grassy and had a pithy grapefruit character and background zestiness to it. Both were medium in bitterness. The prior cask finished drying and bittersweet, while the latter cask ended a tad more dry and bitter. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation for the Zeus version and medium-low for the day-old cask, though both were rather smooth in the mouthfeel department. Drinkability: A fun, engaging juxtaposition of varying hop varieties and the effects of oxygen on beer. Both were amply bitter with bright hop characters and I look forward to this one hitting the regular line-up.
