jlennerton (4) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2014 does not count
Sampled at the brewery. Pours a light orange, hazy, with a slight off white head. Good head retention and lacing. Pine and citrus in the nose. Pine and citrus on the palate along with a hefty malt backbone. Maris otter base malt carries this one beyond the typical. Nice dry finish with a lingering bitterness. A really nice example of an American IPA.

DrSilverworm (5016) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting - thanks to the person who shared this! Mostly clear orange amber color. Good thin khaki ring of head, decent dots of lace. Awesome citrusy c-hop aroma in the nose, and some light caramel biscuity malt. Light zesty sweet taste, mild to moderate bitter at this stage in the tasting. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Very nice, hoppy, aromatic IPA, this one is!
