Clear amber with a sudsy off white head. Lacing is pretty heavy. Aroma of citrus candy and caramel and bready malt. Taste is sweet in the fruity pebbles sense and nicely bitter. Medium bodied and smooth.

daknole (9115) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Clear orange color. Fluffy white head that stuck around for awhile. Citrus and grass hops. I wish the hops were a bit more vibrant, but its drinkable and nothing offensive to note.

I have to go against the grain on this beer. It is poorly mqde and not good. It does look nice with a a hazy amber color and thick lacing head. But a minimum of hop aroma or flavor combined with a light grain flavor and little else here.

Evolutionary (284) - Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Tap at Tuttle Bjs. Nose is pure hop and pour is as expected. Little head here. Fairly well balanced and good hop cutting thru. Citrus notes are hiding in the back and not prominent. ---Rated via my mouth

Beerenberger (1447) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Primarily a piny aroma. Pours an ambers with a long lasting whit head and nice lacing. A piney hops taste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, enjoyable with my salad, but nothing to write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

July 2012. On tap at BJís in Tukwila as part of a sampler. Copper color with a white head. A bit muted in terms of hops, but still a nice IPA and good on a warm July day.

SHIG (3587) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Draft: Poured a golden to copper color with an off white head. Aroma is light hops. Nice soft hops taste that seemed thin, but refreshing on the hot Florida day.

Hopstorm pours a medium copper clear with a quarter inch head of tiny bubbles. Nose is crisp with pine hop aroma. Taste is sharp with floral hops and pine resin. Body lively. Finishes with good bitters.
