GTAEgeek (1790) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2015
12 oz. can, brought to Ale Alpharetta by Hamp. Pours a pale gold color, with a thin, off-white head. Nose is light pine, syrup, resin, and some graininess. Very bitter, light sweetness, and fairly well balanced. Light to medium body, sticky, and a little thin. Overall, this is a reasonably tasty IPA.

Cybercat (4740) - Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Pours hazy apricot under an off-white head. Aroma is not strong, but hoppy and malty and inviting. Flavor starts evergreen hoppy and drags malt and orange in its wake. Body is average, but fizz is strong and leaves a lasting tingle. Have one for the troops!

glennmastrange (2587) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Can. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy pine and some orange peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with wood and faint pepper in the background. Head is small, frothy, slightly off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy dark amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily, with a soft to lively carbonation. The roasted malt and piney hops lingers nicely in this IPA.

rumproasts (4718) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Can. Deep golden with one finger head. Pithy grapefruit and pine. Moderate bitterness. I don’t catch the maple wood at all. Pretty average IPA.

DocJitsu (1559) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Pours a very murky golden with a beige-white head. Pine, orange, and lemon on the nose. Full mouthfeel getting quite astringent. Citrus and lettuce flavors.

youdictategood (467) - Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Can. No detailed notes - entering some older stuff from around town. A little more stone fruit than usual for the style. Don’t really get the maple/wood note that you’d expect, but not sure it would do anything but the beer more confusing. Typically solid CCB IPA.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2015
Draft @ CCB. Orangée, col fin blanc. Arôme est plaisant, note d’agrumes avec une pointe boisée accompagnée par des effluves fruitées. Palais est houblonné tirant sur les agrumes, retrouve une ’certaine’ touche boisée que j’avais déjà expérimenté avec la Moat Water sur des planches de skate board. Fine note sèche en fin de bouche et un profil agrumes houblonné restant persistant. IPA correcte mais au final l’ajout de battes de baseball reste plus du décoratif que vraiment altérer le corps de la bière.

MrBunn (2654) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Can. Pours a light orange with a thin head and aromas of peach, mango and tea or something spicy. Flavor is a bit of an astingent blast with some tropical fruit, but I can’t quite get past the odd little tanin edginess.
