Golden IPA with a light hoppy aroma. Very intense hops, dry and bilous. Needs more malts for balance. Lots of lemon and grapefruits. Metallic finish.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Growler acquired in trade with Sephiroth (big thanks for shipping a Growler out!). Poured a medium amber color with a very small sized off white head. Aroma of earth, pine and citrus. Husky. Tastes of pine and grapefruit. Thinner body. Medium bitter finish.

Drake (8186) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a medium head that fades to nothing quite quickly. Aroma of bitter citrus hops. The taste is bitter earthy and herbal hops with sweet malts. Medium bodied.

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2004
From a sampler: This brew is a clear amber color with a minimal off-white head. Almost no lacing. Nice floral hops/citrus aroma. Medium-bodied and adequately bitter from start to finish, with some citrus and malt flavors as well. The finish is bitter and lingering but not that tasty. Overall this is a satisfactory IPA.

shrubber85 (7515) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Draft. Earthy orange malt and light orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet bready orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Good standard IPA.

DrSilverworm (6277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Mostly clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves very nice, good lace. Caramel malty, biscuity aroma. Some citrusy, grapefruity hop. Moderate to stronger bitter taste, light sweet. Medium-bigger body. Sort of slick. Lighter, kind of crisp, smooth carbonation. Decent IPA.

Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2008
Objectively speaking: A satisfying hoppy ale that chooses the simplistic approach: Simplify your malts so your hops appear more complex.
I like: Very cloudy appearance. By far their most bitter beer, though it keeps the bready malt dominance and this time, it feels almost wheaty at that. Orange and grapefruity hops cover a satisfying citrus array.
I dislike: Just like it were from the cask, they kept its carbonation level very low, but it feels like it might add some life to those loose malts here.

BBB63 (6010) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Tap at brewpub: Deep amber hue with an average frothy white head and good lace. The aroma has notes of piney aromatic hops, light citrus, caramel and toasted malts. The nose is a bit weak. The taste starts crisp and clean with a bitter front and a nice citric twang. Some sweetness and roasted malt balance. A fleeting finish with some bitters. The feel is slightly metallic and bready, just average. A solid brew, nothing big or fancy. More akin to a slightly hoppier APA, it is quaffable.
