hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Solid hop presence here with resin, citrus and pineapple notes held in check with some caramel malt sweetness. Copper orange color with a touch of haze. Frothy and long lasting light tan head. Medium+ bitterness underscored by pine and citrus, accentuated with pineapple. Medium malt sweetness. Medium body and lively carb. Bitter attack, bitter middle, bitter finish. Actually the malt sweetness makes an appearance or two as it comingles with the hop madness. Long semi-dry finish. Cricky texture. Rev it up!

32 oz crowler from Growler Guys- Pours hazy golden with a large illowy white head that retains nicely. Aroma is resinous, piney, grapefruit and mango. The taste is very tropical citrusy, pineapple, mango, lemon, some pine and resin, sweet light malt. Nice beer, and very sessionable.

Huhzubendah (3477) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Draft at Prohibition Pig. I’ve always wanted to try this beer. I didn’t think it would be while I was visiting Vermont. Medium haze, light orange body, soapy white collar that leaves the glass coated in lacing. Aromas of hops and earthy, bready malts. Hop forward supported by a malty backbone. Solid.

Rating #1962 2015.09.26 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 3, Beer 63 TapHouse Grill, draught. Pours a rich golden, small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is grapefruity, pine, toffee malts. On the palate, similar pineapple and citrus and pine zest, mild resin, mild pastry dough malt. Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced. Lots of toasted malt complexity and a great balance of grapefruity, pine hop notes. Superb.

Bulk_Carrier (3720) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Just hitting Vermont for draft, this came to Winooski Beverage and I got a growlette of it. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a hazy to off burnt orange color with a thin to almost thick white foamy atmospheric head. It quickly dissipated. No lacing. The aroma starts off with a bright sweet to bitter charging grapefruit pulp and rind bursting into subtle sweet orange and lemon. The flavor starts sweet and rides into a nice bitter backing. Aftertaste seems just about as perfect as I would have wanted for an AIPA with a slow riding almost cloying finish. Is it? No, not really. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it allowing the carbonation to play nice and smooth as well. Overall, as an East Coaster I can put my hat off and say yup, here’s that West Coast AIPA that takes the cake. Worth the hype, damn right it is, so find out for yourself, get some.

On tap. Pours a dark copper with moderate head. Aromas of grassy toasted malts with a hint of fruit. Flavors of biscuity malts, dried fruit and bitter grassy hops. Ok but expecting more.

On tap at Hops & Pie 2 weeks ago. Gold appearance with a white head. Aroma of citrus zest, light tropical fruits, light resinous hops and a hint of flowers. Similar flavor, adding moderate bitterness and mild sweetness with hints of caramel/toffee. Medium body. Smooth, balanced and easy to drink.

Bitter, floral, touch piney. Has a firm, biscuity malt backbone and a splash of alcohol. Fairly straightforward traditional west coast IPA
