savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Draft at Shenanigans in Kentucky. Cloudy deep amber with a big off white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus peel, pine and an underlying earthiness. Flavor is sweet and malty with a rough abrasive bitterness, alcohol shows through. Medium body with some residual sweetness. Not a big fan, kind of sweet and abrasive.

IPA086 (1) - oak harbor, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2013 does not count
not what i was expecting with an IPA with its strong citrus aroma and a more golden color, but once tasted had the same citrus flavor with just the right amount of bitterness.

From tap at MikkellerBar. Against the grain version is dark orange, clearer too. Both with a small white head. Aroma is orange fruity, crisp citrusy. Grain version is more crisp citrusy. Bitter and lasting citrusy finish. I prefer the Against the Grain version.

This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light red brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The semi-flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. . An OK brew just nothing special.

tap at Trion tavern - Okay, the beer description for this entry says it is distinct from the Invasion ipa at Drake’s. The description for that beer says they are the same. I guess I’ll enter my rating here. No idea which description is correct... Pours amber-orange and has an aroma of caramel and citrus. The flavor features good bitterness balanced by caramel accented sweetness. It’s medium bodied and well done.

PhillyCraft (5747) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On tap at Farmers, pours a dark red brown color, small white head and lacing. Aromas of orange, fresh hops, and toast. Taste was the same with a nice hoppiness. Better then cali version.

Draught at Mikkeller. Clear brown - offwhite head. Bitterness. Fruity. Licorice notes. Vegetable hoppy. Fresh hoppy. Light fat/off notes. Wierd, not at all like the Drakes version.
