Murky sap color, light lacing that lingers throughout. Citrus-floral nose with a little sour cream. Pleasant effervescence. Pronouced hop in the back with just a little resin, but doesn’t hang around. Very drinkable without any harsh alcohol pop. A really fine Imperial IPA.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Mild balanced nose. Nothing stands out at all. Nice yellow color with a white head. Not sure what is going on. Next to no bitterness. Easy to drink, but forgettable.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Bottle. Big blast of citric hoppiness right out of the bottle. Huge head and lively soft carbonation. Lots of lace. Slightly cloudy and dark gold. Bitter with bodacious malt body. Good.

Cloudy yellow,lasting white head.Dry citrus hop nose.Big dry citrus hop profile, lacks malt backbone.Long bitter/citrus hop end. Great lace Would benefit considerably from a bigger malt presence

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Cloudy light gold in color with a small head that disappears quickly. Distinct smell and taste that I can’t place with a non hoppy bitter aftertaste. I think there are better beers out there in the same price range.

Gerbeer (1830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2012
650 ml bottle from 16th St. Pours a very murky orange/brown with suspended sediment and very little head. Hoppy grapefruit and pine aroma. Grapefruit and oranges to taste with a touch of spice. Nice.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2012
In short: A well malted blonde IPA with assertive grapefruity/grassy hopping. Very good.
How: Bottle 22oz consumed fresh one or two weeks after purchase, bottle forwarded to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head with medium retention
In long: Nose of citrus fruits, bananas and pine needles. Taste has a lot of soft bready malts, a bit of honey, medium sweetness sensation. The focus of this beer is the hops and they have a strong personality with bitter grapefruits, pine needles and yellowed grass. Bitterness is short and sharp and of medium-high intensity. There is a good amount of sweetness on the attack but it is quickly brushed away by the generous hopping leaving a semi-dry sensation. Nothing original here, I’ve had similar IPAs many many times before, but the execution of this one is superior. The Yellow Wolf, another Darwin prediction, the most successful predator of sheeps feeding in dandelions field, and if you’ve never seen one it is because they are just that damn good.
