ForenTox (12) - worcester, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Great example of west coast IPA. Nice floral/citrusy hop aroma and flavor. Not too bitter, a good introduction to IPA for a non-hophead

Copper with a white head. Resiny, light on the palate. Run of the mill beer.

Leighton (10483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Tap at the brewpub - Amherst. Pours clear, deep gold with a small, white foam head. Somewhat shabby. A bit of astringent pine, hints of plastic, bread, leaves. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with orange rind, light pine, grass. Meh.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Tap at pub. Light hazy orange, no head. Sweet, light citrus, honey. Very light in flavor and aroma. Passable, but barely.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Pours orange with a thin white head that leaves no lacing. Slight hint of pine on the nose. A bit of pine flavor on the tongue. Thin mouthfeel which finishes clean. Not as bold as I like to see from the style.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 15, 2012
Growler. Rating #40. Hazy dark copper pour with a small white head. Piney aroma, a little green as well, a green freshness. Above average bitterness, more pine with a light maltiness. Thanks to my growler swap sender. (2321)

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Appearance: hazy orange under a creamy off-white head, solid and smooth.
Nose: cascade hops galore – pine trees and forests. Orange peel and grapefruit peel.
Palate: cascade hops exude pine trees, pine needles, and general forestry in the back. Freshly cut green grass. Grapefruit peel. Pine needles. Dried rosemary. Bready in the middle with chewy grapefruit pulp mixed in.
Final Thoughts: quite a tasty representation of the Cascade hop without slapping you in the face. A solid quaffer.

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2011
In short: A basic moderately hoppy citrusy IPA
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden body topped by a very small off-white head
In long: The lightly hoppy nose is mostly cistrusy. Nice malt extraction with smooth round caramel with no white sugar sensation. Fresh citrus fruits. The bitterness level is medium and the beer is a bit dry in the finish. This was a decent IPA, the type of IPA that I would have found delicious 5 years ago. But with the multiplications of hops varieties and uber-hoppy kick-ass IPAs over the past 5 years, this beer is now just a decent IPA. Things have changed a lot in the past 5 years. Google and Apple are now evil monopoly empires and Microsoft is the cool underdog.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
On tap at brewpub.
Appearance : Clear amber no head. Not much lacing.
Aroma : Nice citrusy with hops and nice malt. Nice fresh hops. Not very hoppy but good.
Taste : Resinous hops with malt and light caramel. Nice carbonation level.
Overall : Very well done and rather drinkable. Nothing outstanding but a fairly good example of the style.

rodenbach99 (3063) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
Sampled in a beer fest in chambly, another good example of the art of amherst brewing after the stout, this IPA was very good, nice cascade aroma and flavour, light in colour, the bitterness was present. This is a good example of an american IPA.

Sample at Julio’s Spring Beer Fest (disclaimer - memory somewhat blurred after perhaps a few too many samples) Pretty decent IPA.
