brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2011
A: The pour is a clear amber color with a finger of sticky off-white head that leaves some nice lacing. S: Quite heavy on the caramel and toffee maltiness. The hop character is there, though in the background. It’s mostly spicy and herbal with a decent grass note, too. Just a hint of fruitiness on the back end. T: Strangely toasty in nature with lots of bready malts and caramel. A slight bitterness to it with lots of woody/herbal hops and a light spicy note, too. There is still a fair amount of sweetness, too. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Too sweet without the real intense and citrusy hop profile that I tend to look for in an IPA.

hopscotch (9162) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Lightly hazed orange ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Lengthy, creamy retention. The aroma is a churning eddy of malty aromas... brown sugar, caramel, praline and toffee with some type of mystery fruit working its way into the mix. Full-bodied with a chewy mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The sturdy malt backbone (and there is certainly one provided here) is needed to even attempt to balance-out the acrid and bitter plethora of hops thrown into the boil. Finishes bitter and then dry. A malt head’s IPA! World class, under appreciated brew! Kudos to pepsican for shipping this liquid happiness to me!

Bottle @ Brad’s house. Pours a bit hazy, dark orange appearance with a fluffy, tan head. Grapefruit, pineapple, tropical fruity, herbal hoppy aroma. Somewhat bitter, grapefruity, mango, somewhat herbal/woody hoppy, somewhat toasty malty flavor. Pretty decent.
