Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a nice Monday night while doing some song writing. Appearance is a cloudy gold, not much head. Aroma is mostly hoppy, actually itís just hoppy, not a bad thing though. Taste has a nice hop profile but doesnít add much else, which again isnít a bad thing, itís just a straight forward IPA but itís pretty good.

It poured a golden/amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of resinous pine, pale malts and a hint of bread. The taste was semi-sweet with pine, floral hops and mild citrus. There was a little moderate bitterness on the finish. Very nice.

Emeister84 (1084) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Aromas of tea leaf, citrus, orange, grapefruit, hints of cocoa. Clear amber with a lasting white head. Dry, bitter upfront quickly transitioning to caramelly, bready malts, hints of English tea, and a balancing bitter finish. Light-medium bodied.

DATE REVIEWED: July 31, 2014... GLASSWARE: Duvel oversized tulip... OCCASION: a week with the air conditioning off continues...APPEARANCE: dark, forceful amber orange body, thick and hazy; effervescence is deliberate, sparse; head is creamy, thick, almost oozing with Swiss cheese-like caverns forming along the glass; fantastic lacing--a near one-finger head holds throughout drinking... AROMA: beautiful bouquet of fresh floral hops with some fruit traces; big caramel malt presence--strikes a surprising balance for an IPA with a 7.5 ABV and with pine cone wafting all about... PALATE: medium-to-full bodied, swift to the throat yet sitting against the tongue and cheek in its aftertaste; the weakest aspect of the beer? ... TASTE: caramel eases the hop bomb that rears its piney head; orange is suggested in the profile; finishes sharply with a somewhat astringent pucker--yet, overall, this beer delivers a tremendous balance for a beer that too often is a bitter battle.. OVERALL: at $4.99, probably worth a bomberís price; Big Muddy may be the brewery, but this oneís pretty clear in its taste--though, as the bottle drains, the beer becomes more subdued and easier drinking--is ita trap to drink another?!...

Fresh can. Pours murky gold with tall white frothy head. Aroma is peach, floral, some pineapple and grapefruit, tangerine. Taste is more citrus than hop, sweeter rather than some of the crisp, spicy notes from the hops. You do get a nice, slightly bitter resinous finish.

Medium bodied, yellow IPA with a ton of head. Bready malts accented by some nice pine hops. Tried at the Celebration and the Station in KC in 2014.

Bomber. Color is dark amber, with a frothy head that clings to the glass. Aroma is just malty with a little pine hops. Taste feels like something is missing. A nice pine bitterness, though it is harsh, some malt breadiness/sweetness that seems to disappear quickly and leaves that "somethingís missing" feeling. Quite high carbonation with a medium body that seems to drop out from under it mid-taste to a low body. Not a bad IPA, but not quite a good one....just, just missing the "good" status.
