jerohen (2083) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2014
On draft at the brewpub. Orange colored, medium head. Beautiful hoppy nose, fruity notes. One-dimensional flavor, plain hop bitterness. Thin mouthfeel. Great nose, but otherwise disappointing.

maltman53 (442) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - DEC 23, 2013
On tap at the brewery, pours a copper red tint. Again, I think this brewery uses melanoidan malt in a lot of its grain bill, resulting in a red tint. Aroma is hoppy, mostly citrus and grapefruit. The body is medium with a nice level of CO2 framing a good malt-hop balance. Finishes clean and hoppy. A solid IPA.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Cask at GBBF 2013. It pours amber with a small white head. The nose is earthy, wood, sweaty, spice, farmyard and leather. The taste is pine, resinous, good deal of bitterness, earth, alcohol kick, varnish, underlying caramel, peppery and leaf with a bitter finish. Medium+ body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Tastes better than it smells anyway. Nice bitterness.

FlacoAlto (4045) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Arrives from the tap with a pale, off-white head. The beer is a clear, copper color. The aroma is amply hoppy, with lots of floral, citrusy and herbal notes; this is what an IPA should smell like. It has a dank edge to it that is nicely "herbaceaous". Lots of tangelo zest, and lychee notes.

A nice biting, but smooth bitterness that becomes a bit more prominent through the finish. Lots of tangelo zest notes, ruby red grapefruit notes, rosemary, a touch of menthol, definitely some pine flavors and a general herbal floral character defines the hop notes here. The body is a touch chewy, but still quite quaffable. The malt character has some light crystal malt character that contributes a touch of caramelized grain, and some whole grain cracker like character.

A solid IPA, definitely the best beer of the couple I have had from this brewery. Even pairs well with the Breakfast burrito I am having right now.
