Lupulucid (189) - - JUL 21, 2013
Bitterness is out of balance, hop expression is insufficient and off flavor mars appeal slightly.

islay (1378) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2013
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-9-13. Fresh, hoppy aroma features tonic water, seltzer, and lime scents. Nice but simple smell. Pours an orange-tinged deep gold with a large amount of fluffy, off-white head. Liquid is clear with some effervescence. Produces good lacing. Good-looking beer. Dry taste features a mineral water element. Simple flavor but pretty good. Light to medium body. Lively and soft in the palate. Probably more enjoyable than this score implies, but too simple (i.e., lacks the complexity of a standout brew).

Braudog (5965) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Draft at the brewery beer garden, and at the University Terrace ... several pitchers worth for July 4th. Dark bronze, frothy head. Drinks with a solid malt base and a rich mouthfeel. Topped with genuinely good earthy and piney hoppiness. (#5136, 7/4/2013)

bytemesis (4105) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear orange, medium off white head, great lacing. Aroma is pine, caramel, citrus. Flavor is the same, light sweet, light bitter. Not great, but not terrible. Medium body, metallic finish.

shrubber85 (8550) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle. Orange malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Mildly sweet citrus malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Not bad.

dwm1034 (692) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle from PW singles rack. Nose and initial taste are very mild hop-wise. Decent but not outstanding. Can’t tell the ’drink by’ or ’bottled’ date...could be stale.

Enjoyed this easy drinking IPA from Capital. Has a very basic palate, just a little hops, no real spiciness or bitterness. Extremely drinkable and fun.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
madvike (3045) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle - Pours clear amber with a big fluffy white head and beautiful lacing. Nose is clean dry malt, light peppery spicing, and a piney hop aroma. Taste is medium bready-sweet malt, more dry pepperiness, and a understated pine/grass hoppiness. Soft, clean body and well-carbonated. Now I’m no Capital fanboy--far from it--but I’m baffled at the low scores on this one so far. It’s soft up until the finish, well-balanced, and fairly clean and dry. There’s nothing in-your-face about it, but honestly that’s probably my favorite thing about it. I went in with low expectations--especially after hating their new DIPA--and was pleasantly surprised.

BVery (7450) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Clear pale orange pour with a white head. Getting some lager yeast on the nose. Bit of resin bite in the taste, but it’s a bit sharp and persistent. Not a great IPA.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Patrickctenchi (4520) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Nearly clear, bubbly amber, with a short, off-white head. Orange peel.........a little pine aroma. Taste is moderate bitter orange peel, caramel malt, tea leaves...wood. Very dry,...white pepper notes. Ok, but just a plodding, dull bitter throughout.
