Bottle from Whole Foods
Cloudy golden color with a lot of floaties; small head. Strange aroma: lemon, soap, rosemary, heather. The mouthfeel is rather dry; no notable malt flavor; strong bitterness; but it has a soapy character, and herbs, and some citrus peel.
Weird, hardly pleasant.

Bomber From KatHouse, Thanks Brother!. Poured into pint glass. pours a light hazy orang leaving a thin white lacing on glass. Aroma is kinda strange, thinking it’s the black lemon and peel ? Taste is peppery. different in a good way though.

This is blasted with lemon and orange. Color, aroma, and taste all display the heavy hand of citrus hops and added juicy fruit rinds. Good beer.

As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.

Bottle thanks to my summer secret santa. Pours a hazy light golden-orange color with a small foamy head that fades very slowly and leaves a little lacing. Really interesting aroma of citrus peels with lavender, herbs, mouthwash, and pot. It’s more unique than I can describe really. Tastes fairly complex too. Light citrus-y sweetness with a moderate bitterness. Bitter citrus peels mix pretty well with the lavender, herbs, and dank pot/flowers. Light spiciness and some mint in the finish. Great effort on this IPA to make something pretty unique in a very flooded style. I could see some people loving this.

maxwelldeux (3662) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is amazing. Has some pine citrus and resin elements to it and makes it really inviting. Taste is lightly bitter and super fresh. Great beer. I love it.

Very herbal, some lavender, and Vicks. Very dental spearmint. Very interesting nose. Smooth, mild bitter hops and leaf. Some Seville orange rind. Good.

Golden blonde, with a slight ring of head. Nice citrus bitter nose. Chinook and Amarillo clean hoppiness. However, the body takes a decided turn toward grapefruit. Quite juicy.
