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.

LilBeerDoctor (3509) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malt, crystal malt, and a slight hint of citrus. Flavor of caramel malt, sweet malt, some sweaty hops but mostly this was dominated by the caramel malt. Much too sweet for an IPA and not to my liking. 6/4/6/3/13 [3.2/5]

I had this on tap into a tulip at Ashleys...The beer pours a light hazy orange, not a ton to look at here...The aroma and taste are both ok, nothing special either, ligth pineapple on the nose, a mild hop presence. The feel is ok, and its ok to drink but with the lack of hops, it really doesn’t justify drinking more than one.

Bottle at le mondiale 2011. Well not much to repot here, run of the mill american ipa. Citrucy hops, light bready malts. Good.

SrSilliGose (3284) - 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.

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.

Silphium (3188) - 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...

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.

auerbrau (3182) - 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.

superspak (3164) - Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours super hazy reddish orange color with a huge 2-3 finger light khaki head with insane retention that reduces to a thick cap that lingers. Loud hiss upon opening, and it took a while to pour this one. A lot of carbonation. Decent lacing on the glass. Aromas of orange, caramel, lemon zest, bread, pineapple, and herbal hops. Very malty aromas with decent strength. Taste of orange, caramel, biscuit, floral, lemon, herbal hops, pine, light tropical fruit, and a touch of pepper. Good amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, biscuit, herbal, and caramel on the finish for a bit. Very good malt balance with the bitterness make this easily drinkable for 7%. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy, slick, and fairly crisp mouthfeel. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming after the finish present. Overall this is a pretty good IPA. Definitely drinkable and balanced.
