nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2011
12oz bottle. Amber-brown. Big, intense beige head. Fruity, piny aroma, some faint cinnamon coughy syrup which gets worse and worse the more it warms.. Maybe this is infected, but tastes like a hoppy amber to me. Bitter, slightly soured, overcarbonated. Not bad per se, but hardly good. I take it back...bad. Infected for sure. Sorry guys.

holdenn (2078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2011
12 oz bottle. I picked this up b/c I thought it would be a fresh IPA, it was closer to an amber than an IPA. An amber color with a white head. Some hops in the nose but mostly earthy malts. Lots of crystal/munich malt flavors here that again remind me more of an amber. Lemony earthy hops that are minor and off putting with the malts. Too sweet malty and kinda odd flavors. Hope their other beers are better.

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2011
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 41°. Color is a hazy amber with light carbonation and small off white head. Aroma is a nice fresh hop scent with some light citrus back notes. Medium bodied with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor comes in on a malty caramel taste, then floral hops show with a light spiciness, a touch of citrus and mellow bitterness. The hops and bitterness linger in the after taste. Overall this is a nice IPA, big hop flavor but not over done.

wedgie9 (1837) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Tasted on 5/1/11 from a 12oz bottle at Lush West Town. Pours clear dark amber with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is hoppy with bread toast, some caramel, light resin, and a nice amount of citrus. The flavor is the same as the nose with the bread malt and burnt caramel more prevalent and the citrus and resin hops more subdued in the background. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter hops and touch of citrus finish.

Pours dark slightly hazy reddish brown with thin to no white head. Aromas include some caramel, touch of grass and metal, maybe some biscuit. Taste is best cold, with notes of caramel, some cardboard, some grassy hops, bit of biscuit, slightly bitter mostly sweet brew. Probably is an old sample of this brew.
