very interesting beer, citrusy sour complex and pleasant - had it at Redcoat with mussels and calamari, would highly recommend with seafood

Bottled. Looks like apple sauce watered down with no head at all. Aroma is all citrus and reminds me of that Norwegian IPA style, with other notes of sweeter grapefruit and lighter spices and malt vinegar. Flavors continue with the stingy vinegar and apples a little sour with only lighter citrus. Sour lasting after taste lasting. I must say this is one of the most interesting IPAs I’ve ever had.

2006 vintage. Cloudy orange born pour with medium white quickly receding head. Aroma is barnyard, lightly sour, lemon, grapefruit, some must. Flavor is must, wet books, dusty Brett, faded pine, some roasted notes on the finish.

750 ml bottle. 2006 vintage. Poured a slightly hazy ruddy dark orange color. The head was thick and light tan with good retention and lacing. Despite being stored in my cool basement, I think the hops have long since expired. Smelled very similar to fruit cake and ginger snaps. Not the aroma I normally associate with an IPA. Medium bodied and delicately sweet with moderate to highish carbonation. I tasted molasses, delicate ginger, dark fruits (especially black cherry), and the most delicate note of anise liqueur. No grapefruit, no pine, no flower blossom. Certainly not a hop bomb. Again, perhaps the hop-imparted aroma/flavor has long since moved on. That said, it was still pleasing overall.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is dry hoppy and mild fruity. Smooth fruity and barrel like. Bitter, dry and distinct grapefruity. Mild citric note. Light fruity impression. Mild acetone to phenolic note. Lasting cherry fruity to wooden impression.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2010
(Sample Date: 1/20/2010 Source:Mekong) Woody aroma with spicy and earthy hop and yeast character. Cloudy golden with fine white head. Flavor is complex earthy woodiness with some light sour fruity notes. Not a classic IPA….but an interesting combination of flavors.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Courtesy of the one and only Gillard. It pours hazy copper with orange hues and loose thin off white head. The aroma is a bit musty with malts, spicy hops, dark berry fruitiness and smooth sweet sweetness. The taste is a bit bright with a mix of berry sweetness and tartness as well as caramel candy. The finish fades away with the aid of modest berry tartness.

markwise (4424) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2010
06 Vintage- thanks to the Tampa Crew for sharing this one. Pours murky brown with an off-white head. Nose is malt, tartness, lemonade, some citrus, and peach flesh. Flavor is similar with tart, sour finish and a medium body.

gkost (1711) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2010
POurs orange/amber. Nose is a strange combo of funk and floral/citrus hops. Noticeable tartness. Flavor is oxidation, flowery hops, earthy hop, dry toasted malt, lactic sourness and funk.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
ContemplateBeer (1493) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Aroma of cocoa, licorice, caramel and scotch, Appearance is dark brown with creamy head. Flavor matches the nose, with an emphasis on the scotch. Palate is bubbly and creamy. I was surprised to see that this beer isn’t a Scotch Ale. Delicious anyway.
