CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Sampled from a 2.5 day old growler: Pours a transparent bright orange bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Nice fresh piny, resiny hoppy aroma has good, light caramely sweet balance. Starts fairly full in body with a good sweet backbone and assertive fresh sticky, resiny piny hops toward a crisp, bittersweet finish. A very nice IPA. Big thanks to GrbDg!

Ughsmash (7125) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Many thanks to sliffy for the handbottle! Poured clear medium golden with not much white head sticking around. The aroma picked up lots of grapefruit and pine (but in a sweeter kind of way).. sweet caramel as well, but overshadowed by the hops.. a little candy rounds it out as the brew warms up. The flavor had sweet caramel and grapefruit at the core with toffee and grapefruit bitterness supporting.. sweeter candy-like notes at the back.. very tasty! Medium-bodied and well-balance on the palate with a long-ish finish.. enjoyed the Amarillo usage!

Hand bottle from Sliffy. Thanks Dan! Pours a very clear (almost filtered looking) light copper with a thing off white head. Aroma is sweet and pungent with tons of amarillo hops- light earth when cold, as it warms some tropical fruits come out- orange zest, and warmer yet- gets a little catty. Flavor is mostly amarillo hops- light toasted and pale malts, earthy moderately harsh hop bitterness- prety clean overall. Smooth and easy drinking. Nice IPA.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Hand bottle. Poured a clear golden orange with a decent but quickly dissolving off-white head. The aroma was hop forward with notes of flowers and oranges. Some sweet malt underneath. The flavor started malty and quickly became bitter. The bitterness grew through the finish with some orange rind joining in. Light to medium bodied with a dry moderately bitter finish.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2006
2006 GTMW. The beer pours to a caramel body with a thin fizzy head. The aroma is sweet juicy fruit hops. Grassy and fruity with nectarines. The flavor is sweet juicy hops, very nicely balanced and not overly bitter. Nicely textured palate. Good coating.

2-day-old growler, courtesy of miketd. Thanks a ton, Mike!! Pours a beautiful, clear honey-orange color, with a slight effervescence coming up from the bottom of the glass; perfect head formation: fluffy, structured whiteness, coating the interior of the glass and well-retained. The aroma shows an intense hoppiness without overpowering: resiny, dank character, with orange and passion fruit as the dominant notes; minimal malt presence, just dense, refreshing hops. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: generous, resiny and flavorful hop characteristics: Amarillo really seems to shine here, with orange and fruit filling the mouth; minimal malt presence, making for an intensely sessionable, satisfying IPA without resorting to thick maltiness to hide astringency; none of that, nor any chalky, mouthdrying qualities here; flavorful, brilliantly done stuff. Lengthy, citrus and orange finish, ending pleasantly.

Woohoo! Iím the tenth rater of this bad boy and it deserves itís reputation. I even managed to witness the death of this honorable hop showcase. I walk in, start talking to kujo9 and order up my pint of the stuff. No problem, except Iím planning on walking out with a growler. They donít provide growlers anymore and only fill growlers you provide. Doesnít matter. I got the last or next to last pint anyway. Donít worry kids, even the brewer was surprised at the beerís popularity and quick demise. Iíd bet on it becoming a frequent tenant on the Buckeye tap lines. Hazy amber with a thick creamy head. Huge hoppy aroma. Apricot and grapefruit. Nice malt backbone, but the hops are definitely the focus. Tongue tingling from the dominating Amarillo flavor but no over-the-top or harsh bitterness. Damn I love this hop. Damn I love this beer.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2008
growler via trade with miketd - Pours a crystal clear orangish/golden color with a half finger thick white head that faded pretty quick. Very light, tiny spotty lacing. Aroma is big hops. Itís herbal, pine, light citrus, and light floral hops. Flavor is all hops with just enough malt sweetness to call it a beer. Mouthfeel is a tad bit thin and has an ever so slight astringent aftertaste. This is an IPA that canít be mistaken for any other style. I bet it is even better fresh from the tap. Good stuff! Thanks Mike.
