Cybercat (3276) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Pours a dark, slightly hazy golden amber with a fairly thick and quite persistent pale tan head. Strong aroma is quite hoppy and has hints of grapefruit and, interestingly enough, honey-like sweetness. Flavor is hoppy and a little bitter, with a hint of grapefruit and just a whisper of honey. Texture is quite fizzy and tingly, leaving behind a hoppy and tingly finish.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2011
12oz bottle from The Beer Depot in Ann Arbor, MI. Pours a clear, amber-copper-orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and foamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweeter caramel with a good amount of grapefruit hops. Florals and some piney resins, earth, and a touch of toast. Flavor is similar, but feels a bit unbalanced. Sweeter caramel with a light toast and a good amount of floral grapefruits. A few resins and pines towards the end as this finishes mostly dry and sweet with a moderate, earthy bitterness that gives off a bit of a spiciness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a fairly lively, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. A bit sweet with lots of grapefruit hops. Nothing exceptional, but not bad.

SrSilliGose (3248) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
pours a clear copper with a nice fluffy offwhite head. aroma of moldy bread, hay rotten wood, stale pale malts. light mouthfeel. maybe i got a bad bottle, not sure how long it was sitting at peter’s gourmet something or other. This beer was a little more palatable as it warmed, but still wasn’t good.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Clear amber with a small, off-white head. The aroma is light, some toffee and citrus. The flavor is caramel, grapefruit and doughy. Medium body is soft with light carbonation.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Deep coppery red body, medium tan head. Strong buttery diacetyl aroma, bready but with an emphasis on buttered popcorn. This characteristic dominated the flavor profile, too, which was otherwise cerealy and quite sweet, with an interestingly light emphasis on hops for this style. Lacks bitterness. The diacetyl was way too strong but this wasn’t a drainpour. However, for the diacetyl-phobic among us...

auerbrau (3166) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 1, 2008
12 oz Bottle. A quieted hop sugar aroma, glowering with lemons and spice marinade. Nice and nuanced. Piney. A decent aroma. Pours this side of ruddied amber, with a silken draping of birch. Flavor is surprisingly boring. There’s a cracker-like malt sweetness, running amongst a nip of honey and sherry. Heat. Hops run away in fright. Where did the hops and bitterness go? This has a humulus profile of a APA or an aged Barleywine. Fresh tasting at least. Earthy. Thin and soapy. Meh.

robinvboyer (3082) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle at le mondiale 2011. Well not much to repot here, run of the mill american ipa. Citrucy hops, light bready malts. Good.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 20, 2009
12oz bottle from dmschefke, thanks Dave. Hazy orangish/brown color with a nice white head. Mild hop aroma, really light actually. Decent hop bite, much better than the armoma, some maltiness as well. Decent

rumproasts (2852) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2013
bottle. Completely flat amber liquid. Bottle appears to not have been sealed properly. Flavor is pretty awful, so I suspect this would have ended up being poured down the drain either way, but it made the decision easier.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Notes from heemer77’s January ’07 tasting. Hazy orange caramel with a moderate yellow light beige head. Aroma had an odd plastic aroma (like that of the El Toro Stout), perfumey and floral hops, and some toffee. Flavor had big bitterness and some strong perfumey hops, and fairly astringent. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation. So-so.
