BeerandBlues2 (9596) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Tap. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is fruity, floral, citrus and pine hops with biscuit malt and tropical fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with supporting malt, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2012
On tap: Pours a clear deep amber bronze with a stringy-lacing froth of white head. Has a fresh citrusy hoppy nose with some lightly toasted pale malty undertones. Starts with a mild sweetness that quickly dries out revealing lots of grapefruity hops and crisp bitterness before a smooth bittersweet finish. A true "west-coast-style" IPA that I wish was more widely available.

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2012
This poured a nice hazy lighter orange color with a beige head. Aroma was lots of very fruity hops, mainly mangos and peaches, some grassy notes, as well as grainy malts, and some orange notes too. Flavor was much the same, just not quite as prominent, lots of fresh tropical fruit notes, yet fairly dry and biring. Pretty great beer.

sonnycheeba (3495) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Tap. Pours mostly clear gold with average, fizzy white head; good retention and spare lacing. Aroma is dank and grassy hops, biscuit malt, light caramel, lemon, and pine. Flavor is hops forward (medium bitterness) with dry malts, pine, and light citrus esters; dry, bitter finish. medium body and low carbonation.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2012
On tap at the brewery in Berlin, MD. Pours a mostly clear, orange-golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is solid with a nice grassy tangerine and tropical fruit with a light floral and lemon note. Clean pale malt backing with a touch of graininess that really showcases the single hop well. Flavor is similar. Lots of tropical fruit and grass with a solid grapefruit, lemon, and tangerine presence. Light grainy pale malt backing again allows the hops to shine. A few floral notes towards the end as this finishes dry and bitter with lots of fruits and a nice crispness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light, pretty crisp body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really solid and easy drinking IPA. The light grainy malt backing really lets the single hop show off it’s complexity. I might need to check out this Motueka hop. Great beer.

Elwood (3060) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Serving: Draft at the brewery. Hazy dark gold pour. The nose is lighter than expected with some tropicals. The flavor is a little floral then tropical. A light but lasting bitterness paired with a little light grain. Dry on the finish. I rather enjoyed this one.

From the tap poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Strong hoppy flavor with a lasting finish.

sloth (2468) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Beautiful, medium statured pure white head that lasts, great lacing left behind. Clear, dark gold colored brew with tiny bubbles ascending to the top. A real looker! nicely fruity hop nose that keeps ya sniffin, lil dank and flowery. Body is lightly medium with a nice carbo level, hint oily and resiny. Nice balance of pale malts and fruity,tropical hop flavors, little earthy, leafy and some stone fruits. Dry fnish, juicy, tasty and leaves ya wantin more. Nice one Burley Boys! Growlered and draft from/at statelineliquors.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Growler fill at brewery. Pours an orangish amber color with two finger white head with good retention and lacing. Big hoppy aromas of citrus and pine, with cereal grain and light malt . The flavor follows the nose with big hoppy bitterness that is slightly balanced by the grainy malt. An excellent hop profile of citrus, pine and pineapple. Medium bodied, and crisp, with a clean drying finish.
