Draft at the Knick. Stinky west coast ipa, litter box nose with orange, huge bitter and smooth mouthfeel. Grass and herbal a bit more than I’d expect. Solid.

Really good and refreshingly different. Piney hop aroma. Nice full palate. Flavors of hops with a spiciness that was unexpected. Cinnamon?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Lord Hobo, Winter ’14-’15
Bright peachy gold with a strong white head atop.
Well, these are my two favorite American hops but Im not feelin it. Came off a bit short in the aroma department. Clean and certainly not offensive but hardly anything to bat an eye at. Citrus, moderate juicy fruits and a pinch of pine are all pleasant enough. No alcohol noted and a fair amount of balancing malt (honey and light caramel).
Very bitter in the mouth, not to the point of fatigue, but it certainly outdoes the actual hop flavor. Thick, yet not sweet body has ample carbonation. Pineapple, lime, red grapefruit and very dry pine all assert themselves heavily. Not much finesse here. Maybe too far from the source? Will try again next time it comes to town.

Bomber from perkins. Clear pale golden pour with a nice frothy white head that mostly fades. Earthy pine with a strong malt presence, crisp. some grapefruit rind, moderate body and carbonation, nice bitterness with an underlying booziness that adds a nice depth and flavour, dries out somewhat, enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the tap. Slightly hazy, darker golden color with a fluffy white head, and lots of lacing. Aroma of orange peel and grapefruit...and slight light malt. Taste is grapefruit flavor up front and some bready malts. Bitter bite finish, but not overpowering. Nicely balanced. Overall a good beer. Expectations were high, and I was a little let down. Would drink again, just not going out of my way to seek out.

On tap at red cow, pours a murky copper/orange with a medium khaki heard. Aroma of fruity hops and caramel malt. Sweet fruity and citrus hops, berry and orange caramel malt and a light but present bitterness. Not mind blowing bit well done.

sampler shared from a bomber. it poured a medium yellow color with white head. the aroma was mild actually. medium malt and nice floral hop nose. the flavor was less bitter than what I thought it would be nice floral flavor with some pine underlying it...very smooth flavor start to finish.
