wedgie9 (2631) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Tasted on 3/31/12 on draft at the East Nashville Beer Festival. Pours clear yellow with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is pale malt with some light herbal hops bitterness. The flavor is the same, light but enjoyable and easy to drink. The body is light with lively carbonation and a medium lightly bitter hops finish.

jbruner (3987) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2014
On tap at Beer Camp Across America southeast. Pours a hazy golden yellow with dissipating white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is yeasty esters with bready grain and slight citrus back end. Taste follows, not an IPA, more of a dry hopped Belgian blond. Not bad, but not great either.

nearbeer (4874) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pint on tap. Cloudy golden with a lasting spot of creamy foam. Nose is resin, spicy citrus and caramel. Taste is the same with some wheat on the finish. Near-medium body has medium carbonation and is to the dry side. Decent white IPA.

Never had high hopes for Calfkiller. I think their whole "trying to be different" brewing techniques just causes something to be off. Their beers never are put together correctly. This one is labeled an IPA yet is colored like a wheat (cloudy and hazey) and tastes like a dry lager (copper with a grassy finish). I will continue to support their local efforts in hopes I will find one to suite my palate.

Lupulucid (189) - - AUG 31, 2013
This beer has a dominating grainy funkiness that is not unappealing for those inclined towards this expression. It resembles the funk of a white dog whiskey made from corn or barley but unlike those the funk in this beer is a bit more accessible and less unruly. Wizard sauce is cloudy and has a bit of a chewy mouthfeel. It is not a refined beer but its interesting and has its charm.

edgallow (3639) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 12, 2013
16 oz draft pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of malts, grass and citrus. Taste is the malts, yeast and a bit of citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NachlamSie (3275) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Growler from The Market on Washington. Okay, this is not an IPA. I had no idea what style was intended, so I had no preconceptions and no disappointment. This seems more like a dry, hoppy light golden ale. It’s very light, crisp and sessionable. Clean grassy citrus notes with a dry crackery finish. There are hints of lemon. Light, clean grapefruit highlights the slight palate. Great summer brew! (Not an IPA)

SpringsLicker (3452) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Growler Clear gold with a sticky, long lasting white head. Aroma is resiny pine hops and a bit of sweet malt. The flavor is pretty washed out and the body is very thin. Really disappointed. I will try again if I find this on draft.

thome50 (1285) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Growler from a beer shop in Nashville. Rad that they do growler fills. Pours a darker red/brown with light white head. Aroma is grass, malt, hay and some wet metal. Taste is slight grassy hops, very malty (from a tap) and some iron/metal notes. Overall, I wanted to love a brewery called Calfkiller but sad this doesn’t live up to my internal mind hype.
