Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Growler. Pours a deep copper, slight hazy and a thin off white head. Low carbonation. Herbal tea-like aroma, some citrus, mango, and some pine. Malty full flavor with hints of nuts, herbal more tea, light roast and caramel. Body is medium with a relatively full flavor. Ok but overall it seemd like it was a bit solvent-like and dirty.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Draft... Hazy amber ale with orange highlights and a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Hopped up aroma with lemon rind, pine and grapefruit. Moderately bitter grapefruit flavor. Medium-bodied and astringent with fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, scouring, dry finish.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Growler thanks to Whaleman at the HW open house. Dark amber color with a small off white head. Nice hoppy aroma with lots of grapefruit, some pine and caramel malt in the background. Mildly sweet, and quite bitter flavor of grapefruit pith, tropical fruits and caramel. Good balance between the malt and hops.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2006
From a growler at Heavyweight Open House. Such high ratings of this beer - I wonder why my tastes are so different. My first impression of this beer was "eh". There’s some sweet maltiness, but in general it is pretty bitter and sour, with low carbonation. I thought that it was pretty bland and not very complex.

notalush (4640) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Thanks to whaleman for bringing a growler of this to the HW Open House - cloudy brown pour with minimal head - almost nutty aroma, with background hops and musty, earthy notes - the flavor had this very earthy, almost old ale-like quality to it - almost oily mouthfeel - malty and nutty, with some woodiness/roastiness - a pretty solid ale, but nothing worth going out of your way for.

pineypower (2411) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Thanks to Whaleman for bringing this one to the Heavyweight Open house. Pours out a dark copper color with a thin lacing head. Aroma was similar to their nugget nectar with some grapefruit and floral hops. The taste was very nice with a good balance and range of hops. Floral and grapefruit/pine hops with a nice sweet malt balance. Very nice beer, very drinkable and well balanced.
