shadey (1911) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 18, 2008
22oz bottle purchased at Belmont Station in Portland OR. The pour is a hazy light orange with a nice creamy white head. Aroma is a slightly alcoholic resiny hops. Flavor is much the same. Its good, but its not terribly interesting or very dynamic with the hops. Fairly straight forward.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 8, 2008
22oz bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a small white head, some lace. Smells very fruity sweet with hops and malts, malts are slightly dish towel. Tastes hoppy fruity sweet, very very nice. Slightly grassy and spicy, less malt on the flavor then on the nose. Medium body, good carbonation. Great beer!

Courtesy of ibrew2or3. Pours blonde, white head. Aroma, very hoppy, but remains sweet, yeasty (cheese). Taste is hoppy with a decent amount of fruits and pine, with a medium bitter hop in aftertaste.

GMCC2181 (1515) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 31, 2008
The last beer shared by wolf in our IPA/DIPA tasting. Light red in color, decent head. The aroma was a grapefruit, sweet aroma. Taste has a nice spiceyness to it that seperated from most DIPA’s. It still has the typical IPA characteristics to it though. Nice hop bite, which was piney and citrusy. Medium texture and carbonation. I cant understand why it has such a low style score??? Different but good, thanks for sharing alot of good beers tonight wolf!

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Orange-copper color, thin sparse head. Nice sharp, strong grassy hop aroma, earthy malts underneath. Very lemony aroma. Moderate hop strength on taste, very citric, very hop hop forward. Different, but good.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with sweet malt and light caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness and smooth alcohol. Very good.

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Pours deep mildly hazy gold with copper core and near tan head. The aroma has a sting of alcohol before earthy and pine hoppiness take over with moderate layers of maltiness. The taste begins and ends with full citrus, grapefruit and pine hop bitterness that moves into mild sweet hop flavors, malt and some earthiness in the back. This is nice but not chewy and rich enough to being a IIPA. Very nice IPA though.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle: Pours a muddy cherrywood color with a nice light head and sticky lacing. The nose is earthy and dusty with some pale malt and a pronounced rye and columbus note. The flavor is fairly bitter, not a huge body for its size. Crisp and spicy mouthfeel and a creamy herbal finish. Not my favorite combo of hops but it is rich and satisfying nonetheless.

travita (4150) - Frisco, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Bright orange color with a light white head. Pineapple pepper mix in the smell with some yeast and earth. Taste is much like the smell medium bitterness in the finish.
