Dogbrick (9181) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sample at Acoustic Coffeehouse in Johnson City. The beer is a slightly hazy orange-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of fruity hops and malt. Light body with flavors of citrusy hops and sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Lubiere (10851) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2011
A hazed amber IPA with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, a light grassy malt and faint hops. In mouth, a doughy malt with citrusy floral hops, menthol, a decent IPA. On tap at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam, Oct. 22 2011.

Braudog (5975) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at Barley’s Asheville. Light golden amber with a mere cloud of foam. Mashy and sweet, this drinks with a puckering acidity, full of orange-laden fruit. Good American style. (#4283, 10/4/2011)

biznizness (1124) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Draft at Angry Ales with Nick a few weeks ago, while the girls were out for Marsha’s bach party. Solid and clean IPA, definitely a good pick. Not a super standout or anything, but good.

bubbleflubber (1939) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Draught at Barley’s in Asheville. Pours orange-amber with a nice frothy head that leaves thick rings of lace. Nose is of countryside hay and silage. Some hints of candied citrus underneath peppering bitter hops. Crisp mouthfeel and coats the palate. Goes down well, but wish it were a little more balanced and complex.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2010
On tap at Barleys, Asheville NC, 6 July 2006. Amber colour. Heavy flowery hop presence in the aroma. Perhaps a bit over the top. More subtle on the palate. Still plenty of grapefruit but less of the florists shop. Not a whole lot of malt to balance it out. Smooth mouthfeel. Quite easy drinking. Not too far from excellence in some respects but doesn’t quite hit the mark in others. Still a pretty tasty pint.
