Prufrockstar (1145) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Draft at Chuck’s, from notes. Pale, clear pour with minimal head. Aroma: bread, toast -- the typical toasty flavor profile I seem to get frequently from these folks. Caramel, bread, some pine. I’d say it’s "balanced," but I’d be using that as a euphemism for malt-driven. Taste: lots of toast and caramel. Pine bitterness lasts, but plays second fiddle to the toast/malt aspect. Reminds me of a bitter kolsch, actually. Medium body, dry finish.

Draught at King’s Hardware, Seattle
Amber color with compact head. The aroma is hoppy, a bit fruity. Dry and lean mouthfeel, toasty malts flavor, and good bitterness level; the hops are quite resiny.
Nice.

Draught. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a small white head on it. Nose is grassy, with some hints of black pepper coming through for me. Taste is moderately bitter, with pepper coming through as well. Seems to have a nice spicy bite to it. Interesting.

ManvsCity (180) - Redmond, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2009 On tap at the brewery. Slightly cloudy, golden body. White head. Good carbonation. Nice malt balance to the hops. If this were bottled, I’d make it a regular.

Sunset orange, 2 finger head, juicy tropical fresh hoppy aroma. Bursting with hops, mostly dry, very abundant. Very easy to drink for 7%, lingering bitter finish.

Growler. Thanks, Homebrew! Gorgeous rubied medium amber. Dense, creamy gray head. Mango-y mild nose. Creamy medium body. Firm carb. Decent hop presence on the mid-palate. Could stand a fair bit more hop presence, just about everywhere, though. Biscuity malts under that. Mild finish. A bit thin, and more of an APA than an IPA, but tasty and drinkable, so it gets a few extra notches on the overall.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Growler, courtesy SoLan. Pours a lightly hazy, medium-dark amber hue with a foamy, frothy, beige head. Settling in to a thin but lasting blanket, the foam leaves spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is quite dank, showing notes of green, grassy hops and cannabis, with traces of citrus, all over a relatively neutral, toffee malt base. The taste is quite a bit sweeter and more balanced than the nose indicates, with the toffee asserting itself a bit more, and the grassy hops backing off just a bit. Medium in body, the palate displays a balanced, lightly fizzy carbonation. A very nice IPA.

12 oz schooner at the Black raven tasting room. Pour is golden copper with a smallish white head. Light lacing. Aroma of hop pine orange citrus and bready caramel malt - nice balance. Taste is the caramel malt bit over the hops, though they come through nice with pine and citrus. Gets a little dirty in the end. Palate is medium, nice level of carbonation. Nice enough.
