Unique brewpub IPA. Not much hops in aroma, more bready, malty. Fairly pale IPA, surprisingly hoppy in bitterness and flavor, comparable to, but better than, Grant’s IPA. Appropriate light carbonation (uncommon in most IPAs), quite dry on the palate. Very addictive belt of bittering and flavor hops - one of the bitterest, yet most drinkable IPAs on the planet. No surprise the owner is from England.

I had this beer on tap at the brewery. The color is a medium amber. The head is cream in color. The smell is of grapefruit and floral hops. The taste does not disapoint. It is extremely hoppy as an IPA should be. Overall very good beer.

On tap at the pub. Murky copper color with a big bubble cream colored head. Nice fresh hop nose. Very expected grapefruit rind bitterness with the right malt support. Very good with the food there. Solid IPA.

Gregis (1279) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Sampler draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy amber with a thin beige head. The aroma is big piny hops and caramel. Light to medium-bodied slick and fairly soft with a moderately bitter finish. The flavor is a sweet caramel malt front with piny resinous hops quickly stealing the show. A pretty tasty IPA and one that I think is pretty under-rated.

Had this on tap at the brewpub but was in town for a wedding with a lot of family and didn’t take good tasting notes beyond the numbers. I do have down that this was my favorite offering of theirs, though.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and pale malts, iced tea. Flavor of citrus, herbal notes, earthy malt, hint of iced tea. Easy drinking, good stuff. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Draft sampler at Broad Ripple. Big where it counts, in those northwestern citrussy hops we know and love. A bit grassy after that. Cloudy coppery appearance with a big piney smell. That’s all I wrote? Must be getting to the end of the sampler platter. Very nice beer.

Dogbrick (7243) - 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.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 draft - Pours coppery with a medium sized head. The aroma is citrus hops. The flavor is a pretty straight up citrus hops IPA with decent balance, though a little lacking in the malts. The finish is moderately bitter. It’s simple, but good.

I had this on tap at the brewpub, served in an imperial pint glass. It was a nice copper color, nice head retention and actually tasted pretty good. It’s more in the style of a traditional British IPA, not the hop bombs typical of the American versions that I usually drink so, this one was a nice change of pace.
