Crash_the_dog (117) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pours a beautiful orange/amber color with a nice thick head. Tight lacing. Nose is heavy citrus and assertively hopped. Nice texture on the tongue, but flavor is a bit thin. This was a bottle on a hotel bar, so it may not have been fresh, would like to try on tap... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hyped up by my brother-in-law, who lives in Rochester. Pours yellow/orange, clear, with medium head. Hoppy nose. Hops up front with some soapy notes and not much malt to speak of. Bitter finish. Comparable to 60 minute IPA.

On tap at the Basin Pub in Pittsford, NY. Reminds me of dogfish head 60 minute.

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottled: unk Pours amber with a bit of a light tan ring and excellent clarity. No lace. Smells of he dankness, weed, resin, pine and some hints of bitter citrus. Flavor follows with a strong bittered malt profile and nice piny hops in the midpoint with a moderate length bitterness and malt. Medium bodied with moderate carb and hints of a slick finish. Decent beer, it reminds me a of a local IPA that tastes like strait weed with a strong malt backbone. Serving type: bottle 04-04-2012

Hop aroma is strong- as it should be. Nice color and clarity but not much head. Towards the end of the glass the the hops aroma dies off a bit but flavor held on.

ben4321 (3571) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13

Aroma: The nose is nice and hoppy, with some tropical fruit, grapefruit, and pine/resin
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear copper-orange color with an off-white head
Flavor: The taste is much the same, with a big hoppy flavor and some malt backing
Palate: The body is medium, it has a nice, clean mouthfeel, and a dry carbonation
Overall Impression: This one was one of my favorite samplings of the day, and CB was one of the more memorable brewers. A really nice example of an IPA.

Bottle pours a orange nice head. Smells tastes of citrus pine bitter. Not the greatest taste kind of middle road beer.
