iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bells Roundhouse. Tap at Maduro pre party. Clear reddish brown with a two finger light beige head good retention. Pine sweaty citrus and some toasty malt. Flavor adds some spicy resin notes, low sweetness, bone dry finish, some alcohol noted, bitterness peaked at a 7. Medium body with light to mod smooth carbonation. 7-5-7-4-14--3.7

tectactoe (1540) - Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Tap: Amber-ish, copper color with a red-like tint, cloudy but not opaque. A thin khaki film quickly traverses to a collar. Aroma of grapefruit flesh, candied orange peel, sweet caramel malt, a touch of resinous pine needles, & a bit of melon on the back-end. Taste starts with more of the moderate bitter pine & hop oil with melon, grapefruit, & orange peel that comes rushing in mid-palate. Toasted, nearly burnt bready notes with some sweet caramel, dry yeast, & just a mild kiss of spiciness from the rye that hits the palate after the swallow. This is almost more of a red ale & rye ale hybrid than an "IPA", but it was pretty damn tasty nonetheless.

Dogbrick (7687) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2014
On draught at Gallo’s Tap Room. Dark amber color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy hops, caramel malt and slight citrus. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

I’m a homebrewer and I have plans to make a beer later that is a hoppy sweet ipa with a hint of rye. Then I went to a bells rap takeover, because let’s face it you can’t just not... And here this is. The beer I dreamed about! Beer is good....
