On tap at Duclaw, Bowie on 14 July 2006. Pale gold colour. Plenty of grapefruit notes throughout. Firm mouthfeel, with moderate bitterness. Quite light bodied though. A decent enough IPA, if not the biggest hitter.

arundel mills - they actually werent calling this an IPA at the time, but that is immediately what i thought...lots of pine in the nose, looked clear gold, fluffy white head. as soon as i drank it i became more convinced it was an IPA, the flavor and finish were what i expected.

I remember this beer as one I thought little of. Has a palate that is harsh. Like one of those beers that is only 6% abv but for some reason it kicks your ass. A mediocre IPA, and a mediocre IPA is offensive at best.

Draft @ Bowie location, 2005 vintage. Pours a hazy, medium honey color with an orangish tinge; off-white head with fantastic, glass-coating lacing. Solid, bitter citrus hop presence remains in the aroma, but there’s also a cold metallic note in there (which dissipates after it warms). Medium-to-full, citrus-laden mouthfeel: still shows a very dense, bitter hoppiness after two years; lively carbonation and citrus acidity at the edges of the tongue, with a fizzy texture showing through after the initial hop jolt dissipates. Surprisingly hoppy and well-composed at this point, with a similar hop profile to Venom. Lengthy, dry and bitter hop finish; slightly dusty.

I had this beer at the Fells Point locale. I should have stayed and drank more, but I had to go to some retarded "art" show. I gotta give up on these artist girls. Ok. As for the beer. It was a golden yellow with a thin white head. Rather thin mouthfeel with hints of lemon and malt on the tongue, but plenty of hops. Mild finish with a slight metalic aftertaste. Not a bad brew.

Ungstrup (34369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2006
Draft at th Bowie location. I believe mine was spelled Kizmet. A dark yellow beer with a lazing dense white head. The aroma is fresh with a lot of citrus and some malt. The flavor is nicely hoppy with notes of grapefruit (Cascade?) on an OK malty background and leading to a very dry hoppy finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draught @ DuClaw Bowie Golden yellow, nice head and lacing. Nose of light sweet malt, fruity and floral hops. The flavor is juicy, sweet and rich with hops, not quite dry hopped. Plenty of flavor hops though. Good.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Sparkling golden body topped by a very small white head. The aroma is quite hoppy with a slight graininess. The flavor is refreshing with a burst of juicy hops, medium bitterness. Light on the palate, a bit too fizzy. A very nice hot weather beer.

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Draft... Clear yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fruity, earthy nose with notes of grapefruit, white pepper, clementine and pineapple. Fruity, moderately bitter flavor. Light to medium-bodied and fizzy. Finishes bitter then dry. "Mistakes" are often simply "creations" with another name.
