Evolutionary (279) - Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Tap at tradewinds beef o Brady’s. Color is excellent and lingering thin head. Nose is hop and the taste persists throughout. Some Mild smooth toffee like taste in there but really just medium hop and some limited sweetness to add balance. Hint of citrus too. Decent but not great. ---Rated via my mouth

AmEricanbrew (5800) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Clear amber color with ivory head. Pine, floral, pale malt aromas. Medium body with average carbonation. Floral hop flavors with some lightly sweet tropical fruits___lightly bitter finish---not bad.

BVery (6136) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle from hopscotch - thanks. Slightly hazy orange pour. Aroma of grapefruit and a bit of cardboard. Hops in this are a touch stale. Grapefruit hop taste. Just so-so.

GJF (1245) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle at Robbies in Islamorado and elsewhere in the keys. Fairly generic ipa, a bit of pininess. Thin, but OK. The location definitely made this one seem more drinkable than it probably is!

Bullit (4008) - Burgos, SPAIN - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Sarasota. Clear golden colour, with a white head. Nose is hoppy, citric, light malted. Flavour is light malty, hoppy, citric, fruity. Not overly hoppy. Well drinkable. Medium carbonation.

jgb9348 (4716) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Slightly hazy honey and golden coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of light cascade hops, some honey and funky malt, a bit astringent in the nose. Light-bodied; Mild hop flavour with some very subdued malt, a hint of grass and hay and very little else. Aftertaste shows mostly stale malt with some light hops, a hint of sweetness and some herbal and grassy notes at the tail end, but they don’t last long. Overall, a pretty mild IPA with not many good flavours and a few bad ones. Relatively weak in all respects, but not really a beer worth searching out nor one to bring back home! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tampa, Florida on 03-January-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 02-March-2014.

ThirstyBird (1544) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2014
Pours a clear deep golden color with a small tan head. The smell is caramel malt, a hint of grapefruit. The taste is cardboard, caramel, you can tell that grapefruit may have been there at one time... The expiration date is in two months so it shouldn’t be quite this bad. Light+ body with average carbonation. Will not finish this beer...

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle: Golden hue with a mostly lasting head and spotty lace. The beer has some piney notes along with a hint of grapefruit and apple. Biscuity and caramel malts, metallic and flat finish. Seem a bit long in the tooth... got that old IPA thingy going on. Still I doubt it was all the great to being with.

12 oz bottle from Winn Dixie in Orlando. Pours a deep orange with little lacing and no head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Wall of bitterness at first, then mellows and simplifies to a pleasant finish. Quite drinkable and would have again. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
