Tap @ their NW location... Poured amber with an off-white head. Fresh hops on the nose. Good, carbonated palate, with a stingy sizzle on the tongue. Refreshingly hoppy and a little malt for balancing. Straight up, good hoppy ale that’s well made.

Thanks Skyview. Hop flavor and aroma. Pine and citrus, as well as some flower. Sweet malt for balance and gold color. Abundant hop aroma with lots of character and complexity. Far above average.

Thanks to Skyview for this one! Gold color with a thin head. Green tea aroma. Holy Hanna... lots of green tea flavor. Some sweet malt. A little bit of citrus that I would expect, but it is buried by the tea.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2008
Picked up a single 22-oz bomber from Liquid Solutions in Oregon. Pours a semi-clear cooper amber brew with a thick off-white head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, grapefruit, a touch of spearmint, orange zest, dirty socks, and dry herbs. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonation with flavors of both citrus and floral hops, a hint of caramel malt and grapefruit. Finish has a mild bitterness and a spicy caramel aftertaste. The extra eight months of aging did some nice work on this IPA.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, bright, yellow-orange body with a large, foamy, white head. Smell: Spicy, perfumy nose with a musky grassiness and vague, humble maltiness underneath. Taste: Restrained pale maltiness and accompanying sweetness. One tiny drop of light caramel sauce. Spicy hops with a pine resin bent to it. Again, there’s that slight grass-musk hint. Medium bitterness. Dry finish with a light, lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Boy, that 2006 version was a nightmare, but this, this folks, isn’t half bad!

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of oranges, other citrus fruits, and hops. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and hops, leading to a dry bitter finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle thanks BrianK for the share. Pours an amber copper body with a thin whit head. The aromatic character of this beer is grapefruit, pine, citrus, orange and its so effervescent. Flavor is a fresh hop explosion and the cool serving temp is letting this one stand tall. I loved this.

22oz bottle. Mint, cut grass, tree bark, mango, pineapple on the nose with a decent sweeter malt base. Pours a nice bright copper with a decent sized white head leaving nice sticky lacing. Six months later and the hops are still nicely evident on the tongue. Perhaps a tad muted, but still there. Lots of grass, tangerine, plum, sweeter malt. Still a good amount of bright hops. A lush texture on the tongue. I think this would be stellar fresh!
