phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2011
12 oz. bottle from a six-pack purchased at The Wine and Cheese Place. Put the other five in boxes as trade bonuses. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a somewhat dull quality and a finger-thick fizzy white head that settles into a small ring. Aroma of grass, dust, straw, sweet and pale malts, and dry grains. Flavor of grass, cereal, dust, pale malts, crackers, and straw. I can’t really pull the hops out individually but there’s definitely some bitterness to this one. Light-bodied, with a dry, grainy, bitter mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Somewhat odd IPA.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Lukas Liquor in Missouri during RBSG. Totally hazy orange golden color. Pours with a bigger off-white head, kind of pillowy. Leaves decent lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, light to moderate strength carbonation. More dry finish. Good pine, citrus hop, lightly spicy. Mild malt character, just a light crackery aspect. A hint of metallic. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. light sweet. Solid IPA.. Better than expected.

Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle at SAVOR 2011. Served in a goblet. Pours a clear strawy-yellow color with a small white head and sparse lacing. The nose is very, very grainy and doesn’t really carry any hops at all. I can say the same thing about the flavor, which is quite unfortunate. Perhaps the mildest bit of citrus lingering in the background, but only if I really search for it. Light to medium body and no real bitterness. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-09-2011

EithCubes (5008) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle, mine 6% abv. Nose is very pretty citrus peel, soft. Pours yellow-golden with a very large but not gushing soapy off-white head. Light body is soft with light tang and sweetness, light bitterness that’s smooth, more citrus parts from new-age hopping, and light spicy/herbal tones. Overall gentle and somewhat refreshing, touch of chalk I don’t like, though, and a general feel of irrelevance rather than weightlessness.
