jcwattsrugger (11004) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2008
22oz bottle-pours a patchy white head and cloudy amber/orange color. Aroma is sweet citrus (cascade, simcoe). Taste is sweet citrus (cascade, simcoe), some tannins/metallic, pungent, secondary medium malt-caramel/toffee, some burnt sugar. Slick mouth feel of I2PA. Good effervescence.

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2008
An orangish/brown hazed pour. Very nice hop aroma that seems to be cascade or simcoe I don’t know maybe neither, but it was there. Rich sweet malty flavor with a decent hop bitter. A very solid palate with good carbonation. Very good all round IPA.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Sampled at decaturstevo’s tasting. Hazy orange pour with an ample head that falls just a shade darker than white. Piney citrus aroma. Firm hop bitterness with an ample underlying malt base.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2008 Pours a nice, burnt orange color with a huge white, sticky, somewhat frothy head, that laces the glass all the way down. Smells hoppy and grassy, somewhat sweet. Tastes thick and syrupy hoppy and grassy, slight earthy. There is a lingering solid bitterness factor. Had this fresh for the second time, much better, less nutty. Thickish, somewhat subdued carbonation for having such a big head on it. A bit bitter, not that bitter though. Decent IPA, I wouldn’t necessarily peg it as a West Coast IPA though, not bitter enough. Too thick and not enough carbonation.

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2008
22oz bottle from Bu11zeye. The cap pops off quickly and with a sharp, loud bang, as I’m rushing to get a glass expecting the worst., when nothing really happens. Into the glass with a careful pour and we see the cause - a rapidly growing white head of pillowy, sticky cotton-candy foam. Stick your nose in and you get a big whiff of brewers yeast, but let it settle out and fall down into the beer and you get a really wonderful bouquet of pineapple, pine sap, sweet lemon zest, and cedar wood, with a clean, inposing but complimentary malt bit - biscuity, crisp, simple - the way it should be. Frothy, resinous, sticky honey, lemon and cedar hop oils coat the tongue, and it finishes with a frothy sea-foam sweet lemonhead and orange candy note. Overall a really decent IPA.

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 There are a surprisingly large amount of beers with "Idiot" in the name in the database here at ratebeer. Anyway, this was sampled at stevofest, and I can’t remember who brought it. But I did really enjoy this one. very piney, with some grapefruit, as well. Just enough malt to keep it interesting.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Sampled at Stevofest 08. Pours golden amber with an off white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind. Flavor of toffee pale malts countered by a west coast hoppy middle, which is citrusy with some subtle herbal-mintiness. Bitterness carrries to the long hoppy finish. Nice beer

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Bottle at stevo’s. Pours cloudy gold=orange with ivory head. The aroma is very piney. Flavor is straight grapefruit juice with a little bit of sweet grainy malt and some various other citrus. Not bad.

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2008
[960-20071212] 500mL (c/o blankboy, w/ him, GregClow, HogTownHarry, jerc, tupalev). Bitter grassy hops aroma has slight cardboard tropical fruit characteristics and a hint of chocolate. Slightly hazy, orange red body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Bitter doughy yeast hops flavour has strong bread notes and fresh grassy wood. Medium body seems multi-layered. Really interesting, but strange yeast.
Label assurance: "Reduces even the most intelligent to a blithering idiot."

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Lots of fruit in this pretty wet hoppy beer. Some forest in there, tree, sap, pine. Crazy bite at the end but doesn’t linger in a bad way.
