LinusStick (2932) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2006
On tap at Bocktown. A slightly better than average IPA, though I thought this was an APA by the taste. The aroma was of a slight hoppiness with a little fruitiness thrown in. The pour was a typical brownish red with no head. The taste was a citrus-y hop that died before the swallow. Had that taste followed through in the end, this would have been a great beer. Unfortunately this beer was a "hoptical illusion" of a great beer.

vyvvy (4499) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Sampled with Beerdrenched. Pours copper / bronze with a small off-white head. The aroma has lots of floral hops that is well balanced with the caramel malt. There is some pine and grapefruit hop aspects. Medium body that has some sharp carbonation and a resiny finish. Taste starts with initial maltiness then the wood / pine / cardboard hoppy taste comes through. It seems to have some staleness to it. Some lemon notes seem to linger around on the back of the finish. Would like to try again with a fresher bottle.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - DEC 12, 2006
bottle-thanks to vyvvy for the sample. pours light orange with a small beige head around the rim of the glass. nose are citric with lots of floral hops, but somewhat soft. flavros are citric and light pale malts. really doenst have catch to it-pretty straight forward. this seems to be a delicate beer which should be sampled when very fresh. lots of subtle flavors, but hard to pinpoint what exactly. Maybe i will try it again.

Lubiere (10734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2006
Hazy golden ale with a thick creamy lightly off white head. A light restrained hoppy floral aroma with resinous qualities. In mouth, a good malt with decent hopping, well balanced with the malt, with orangey notes, and light candy sweetness. Medium bodied. Classy.

Jine (896) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Drunken straight from bottle but generally clear with some unfiltered detritus milling about. Aroma is hops, slightly fruity. Large hop hit on the flavor. Citrus, malt, etc. An average to slightly above-average IPA.

thornecb (4690) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Pours bright gold into a shaker. Off-white micro head leaves mounds and lacing as it slowly recedes. Grapefruit and resin aromas. Creamy sweet upfront with a tangy citrus finish.

Braudog (5962) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 30, 2006
Bottle: Luminescent deep orange-amber with a thin white top. Nice floral hoppy aroma. Slightly resiny, but not overpoweringly so ... very finessed and balanced. Clean and crisp, this is a wonderful little hoppy beer. I love it.

tjthresh (1866) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2006
12 ounce bottle from my SS winter 06. Pours dark gold/light amber with a gooey white head that leaves loads of lace. There is a slight dry hop haze that is always welcome.Pungant citrus, leafy grass hop aroma. A bit of a grassy hop flavor. A touch of sweetness to balance. Clean bitterness. Nothing to exciting here. Medium on the body. Dry finish. Nice drinking beer.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2006
Orange with thin white head. Spicy aroma with notes of fruits, fresh hops and citrus. Citrus flavour with notes of hops, tea and fruit. A bit sweet. Dry, stabbing bitterness.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2006
(cask at Gingerman) Partly cloudy copper body with a long lasting white head. Intense oak, pine and orange zest aroma. Body felt tailor made for a cask conditioning, soft, viscous and oily. This oily texture holds together eathy spices and citrus fruits flavours. The malt is there to support the flavours but not add to them. The carbonation was very soft even by cask standards. As far as american IPAs are concerned this one is more refreshing than aggressive. Very good. If you drink six of them, women start to look better than they really are, that’s what I call a Hoptical Illusion.
