4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2008 2008-09-08, draught at the brewpub in Rancho Drive, 8-4-8-5-16=41
Light amber color. The aroma is quite fruity and resiny. Good body, caramel flavor, sweet, with strong hopping, again giving a strong earthy character (manure...; it seems to be the brewer’s signature) and fruitness (grapefruit...). Very good.
2007-10-02, draught at Big Dog’s Cafe and Casino in W Sahara Ave., Las Vegas, 8-4-8-5-17=42
Brewed exclusively with Summit hop.
Orange copper color. Very nice hoppy aroma, fruity first, with pine needles too. Medium body strength, malt flavor with a lot of sweet toffee from the hops; very strong hopping, resiny and fruity (bitter oranges). Very good.

Light amber color. Very nice fruity aroma (grapefruit, apricots…), pine needles. Full malty body, sweet, with a respectable amount of resins, fruitness, bitterness. Superb. My best draught beer in Las Vegas.

Body: creamy body
Flavor: lots of hop and grapefruit flavor, sweet citrus
Overall: ipa as it was meant to be
Date: July 01, 2005
Appearance: big sweet aroma of grapefruit sprinkled with sugar
Aroma: sweet malt and tempered hop flavor, does not live up to the aroma
Overall: needs another review before being downgraded
Date: July 01, 2005
too cold? bigger hops and bigger malt flavor, but not picking up the promise of the aroma or the wonder of the beer I had six months ago (after too many other stops that day, I confess), goes great with twice baked cajun wings
Date: January 03, 2006
Appearance: opaque rusty orange, frothy white head, nice lace
Aroma: huge sweet citrus aroma like sugar sprinkled on grapefruit
Flavor: sweet pine flavor with nice bitterness, the hop flavor saturates after a while until you need to scrape them off your tongue
Overall: back to greatness
Name: Small IPA?
Date: April 04, 2011
Appearance: slightly hazy copper, creamy beige head, solid lace
Aroma: big sweet orange citrus aroma, sweet crystal malt, lots of orange with a dash of orange rind, crystal and orange combine for a orange candy character
Flavor: sweet malt flavor, lots of citrus hops, just enough bitterness to balance the sweet crystal malt
Aroma: 8/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 15/20
Score: *** /4

inconsistancy is the way with this beer, still a good citrus and grapefruit character but not the special batch that shows from time to time, maybe it’s all about freshness and timing, later I found out it’s about getting the beer you order,
Date: April 10, 2011
so this was the wonderful orange citrus laden IPA I had on my first visit this trip,

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Chicago Brewing Co (they were out of their IPA, sampled at Big Dog’s later that day). This beer pours a clear yellow-amber color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and hops. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with pine and citrus hops flavors, plus a touch of malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering grapefruit and hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
