jcwattsrugger (11001) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2007
on tap-pours an off white head that laces and copper/amber color. Aroma is sweet citrus hops-pine (simcoe+), secondary medium malt. No, write up says only simcoe. Taste is sweet citrus/grapefruit hops-pine, some bitterness, secondary medium malt. A soft, Sessionable, smooth IPA, quite aromatic. Mild/minimum carbonation.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Tap at the source - Clear orange, white creamy head. Nose was not unlike an IPA straight out of Southern Cali. Intense floral and leafy pine hop notes that lay on a bed of cedary wood-like tones. Bitter pine and cedar flavors dominate with only slight hints of malt. Truly for the hophead here with little to no balance. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, bitter finish. Definitely west coast influenced, and a well done version at that...

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2005
On draught at brewery 8/11/05 with Clarkvv: Golden yellow with a bit of an amber/rust hue to the body as clark has noted. Has a small white head that quickly dies to a small lasting ring. The aroma is dominated by hops, but not in a knock-your-socks-off west coast overhopped kind of way. The hops come through with a bit more floral, grassy, pineapple scent that shows off more plant/grassy notes than it does shear bitterness. The taste is grassy, floral, and fruity hops but not terrible high in bitterness (not a bad thing). There’s subtle hints of grains and dough in here, with maybe a hint of biscuit, but overall not much malt in this one. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, pretty simple IPA.

ClarkVV (3856) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 18, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 On draught at the brewery with bucknaked on 8/11/2005. Golden body, slight rusty, maizeish tinge. Chill haze and a small white head, which, like all of the beers at this brewery, very quickly disperses, leaving a touch of bubbles on the edges. And again, true to the brewery, there is immense lacing in thick sheets, up and down the glass. Smells dry and floral, some pineapple and pale malt. All told, not tons of aroma. Light yeast dryness on the end as this is unfiltered. Flavor begins with a big amarillo hops fruitiness. Moderately dry on the end, with a low malt profile and a moderate acidity. Dry and flowery, very low sweetness. Dusty. Just a bit too much on the hops bitterness, for my liking, anyways. No real malt complexity. But not bad at all, just hop centered. Medium-light body, bitterness/acidity lingers.
