DuffMan (7999) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, also sampled at the Spring Beer Fest in Portland. Hazy red-orange with an orange-tinted head. Intensely hoppy aroma featuring citrus rind and mango, some coniferous undertones. Earthy toffee malt supports a rich bath of hop character: lots of tropical fruit and resin. Heavy mouthfeel, oily, with an intensely bitter finish. So good!

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a hazy ruddy orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Citrusy hops aroma with notes of honey and pine. Medium body with a moderately hoppy character with piney and citrusy notes, along with sweet malt and honey in the background. The finish is hoppy with a tart citrus aftertaste. Pretty good all around, almost like Hopslam’s younger brother.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Portland trip. Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a hazy caramel color with a medium sized yellow-white head. The aroma was strong sweet pineapple and grapefruit. The flavor was strong and crisp bitter grapefruit that had great oomph and a solid undertone of brown sugary. Long bitter hoppy finish. Fairly full bodied. Excellent.

neepsntatties (1375) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2009
On tap at Hood River Hopfest ’09. Colour... cloudy orange with a thick head. Nose... very hoppy and rather astringent. Palate... Whoa! Bitter! Bitchy! Tangy! And a lengthy pine-like finish, to boot!

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Growler from the brewery. At 13 bucks, not a bad deal! Poured a deep amber with a big old fluffy white head that leaves nice lacing on the glassware. Aroma is citrus and pine hops with a notable marijuana note as well. Flavor was citrus, pine, caramel malt and weed. Solid beer, I probably didn’t need to drink that much of it in one go, but what can you do?

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Tap @ OBF... Poured amber/burnt orange with a thick, white head. Nice hoppy aroma. Big hops up front with a little bit of grains and much noticeable alcohol. Had a malty finish.

What a breathtakingly bitter and complex IPA. Mostly citrus hop profile, and with a large body to sum up.

BOLTZ7555 (2969) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Without doubt, the brewery’s best!!! This one poured a fiery orange, with flickering yellow and rose making their way into the glass. Fruit-filled flavor (tangerine, grapefruit, orange) with ponderosa pine bark present as well. Bright, tangy, and well balanced. Wish they bottled this!!!
