marcus (9231) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 7, 2016
On tap at Apex. Pours dark gold with a thick white head and a citrus aroma. There is a strange earthy pale malt flavor -tastes like maybe rye malt or Mosaic hops, but not exactly. Still, really tasty.

after4ever (7619) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Tap at H&H. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy pale tan head. Big sharp dry grapefruit nose, very crisp and forward, mixed with some blood orange. Itís like the perfect dry Campari IPA. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Nice toasty caramel under a sharp dry bite of grapefruit and blood orange. Crisp dry finish. This is easily a multiple-growler IPA.

riversideAK (6160) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Big danky citrus nose, pale malt a little toast. Resinous and nice. Hazy golden orange pour, great head and lace. Flavors of dank and citrus, pale malt s touch of biscuit and toast. Lingering oily danky hops. Solid balance great beer.

Prufrockstar (1995) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Draft at Beer Authority (followed by another glass at home from the growler). Keeping Andrew at bay for one more tick (edit: nope). And what a tick - Barley Fuckiní Browns. I love these guys. Clear burnt amber pour with white head, good lacing and retention. Nose is a classic west coast ipa done right - jammed full of resin and grapefruit, backed up with some caramel. Just enough sweetness to crushable, just enough alcohol for "tomorrow guy" to regret the first fact. Assertive bitterness so you know youíre drinking an IPA and not some hop-flavored juice. If this was a tv commercial, itíd be for a pickup truck. Overall: Barley Fuckin Brown.

Draft pour pint at Brouwers Cafe. Pours a clear bright golden color with a thin patchy head. Big fresh hop aroma as expected. Thick cream body with a sweet malt background, covered up by a big fresh hops presence. Overall a pleasant IPA here. In barley browns hit or miss IPA section for me, Iíd call this a hit.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Draught @ Brouwerís Cafť:   Orangish amber, frothy white head, so-so lacing.   Grainy malt aroma, slight hoppiness.   On the tongue it really comes across as a hoppy Fat Tire.   Has that grainy maltiness that I donít usually care for.   Yeah, hoppy Fat Tire is all that needs to be said.   Not my thing...

ACHops (1374) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2015
On tap @ Chuckís 85th. Pours slightly hazy medium orange amber with thin lacy off-white head. Aroma is medium caramel malt, nice herbal earthy hops on the back. Taste is big caramel malt, sweetness quite restrained all considered here; big earthy vegetal hops, some light lemony juiciness. Nice hop flavor, though not quite as balanced as Pallet Jack. Solid IPA, all considered.

beer-yum (1364) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 15, 2015
Lovely citrus pine aroma in an golden amber pour. Flavour is similarly alluring with a hop forward balance to the full bodied taste and sustained bitter finish.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Light amber with a thin head. Hops are papaya - I just assume this is good for my stomach - and everything has that smooth sweet thing that is yummy for a pint or two. So itís a good one for the fruit character, and just how bright it is.
