COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A medium-bodied, golden IPA that gets in your face from first sweet sip to crisp, dry finish with the exotic tropical fruit flavors and aromas of New Zealand Motueka hops. With just enough malt character to keep the aggressive hop presence in check, and an unruly 7.5% abv, this brew was seemingly born to kick ass. And RAZE HELL!

Solid beer - nice gold color. Both the taste and aroma is citrus hops. Could be hoppier though, not as good as Venom.

I must have gotten a different beer or it was labeled wrong at Bowie. Poured out a dark brown color, with a thin tan head. Aromas are of roasted malts, coffee beans, dark dried fruit. Flavors are of roasted malts, spicy hops, coffee beans. Medium body, thin mouthfeel. Mot my favorite offering from Duclaw.

20090207 Tap at Bel Air location. Pale amber, pretty light for an IPA. Other than color, this fits the standard brewpub IPA mold. Clean, mild, simple. Nice pithy finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Tap at Arundel Mills in Mar 2008: Pours a transparent deep bronze with a thin coating of stringy-lacing white head. Has a fresh piny grapefruity hoppy nose with sweet pale malty undertones. Starts with decent fullness and sweet toasty caramel and pale malt before a crisp, bittersweet finish. A pretty nice IPA with good grapefruity citrusy hoppy notes.

On tap at DuClaw Fell’s Point. Aroma is grapefruity and citrusy. Palate is medium in fullness, with light carbonation and a long finish. Flavor features citrus and soapy hops, with a clean, unmasked bitterness. Reminded me on Opa Opa IPA.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Growler from Beachbum25. Thanks. Bright gold pour with a nice fluffy lasting head and super sticky icky lacing. A really nice looking beer IMO. The aroma is of toasted caramel malts, some bread, and hops in the form of earth, citrus, and wood. Nice toasted malts, a touch of sweetness, all rounded out with nice earthy hops, citrus skins and wood. The carbonation is light and the beer drinks very smoothly. Quite good for session drinking.

Lubiere (9440) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2009
A golden amber ale with a thick resilient off white head. A nice pungeant aroma of hops and orange marmalade. In mouth, a decent hoppy IPA with orange and fruity esters, caramel. Medium bodied. On tap at Duclaw Baltimore, Dec. 29 2008.

Golden color with an earthy hop aroma. Flavor was a bit soapy and medicinal. Ok, but something was a tad off.
