Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Tap at Caeli Cottage in Toronto. Pours a light amber- deep copper with a thin but lasting white head. Aroma is sharp nutty toasted malts caramel- crystal malts and light fruitiness with a ctirus and orange zest light pine hop kick. Flavor is hoppy, a bit resinous with some pine with a toffee and caramel maltinss, toast and a gritty hoppy bitterness in the end. I liked drinking the Hop Head IPA a bit more just because it was easier to drink- this was a bit too tacky in the end. Solid though.

Sweaty, catty, citrus grapefruit and orange suggestions to the nose. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a low tan head that recedes slowly to partial cover with excellent lacing. Caramel malts are quite pronounced but blend well with moderate bitterness. Plenty of lingering citrus and grassy hop character in the aftertaste. Very dry in texture with moderate carbonation. Sampled on tap at Caffe Volo during Grey Cup weekend 2007.

Too hopy for me, it was very well brewed, very dark, good foam and not annoying but too bitter.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2011 a sexy ipa. i mean all ipas that are well made are sexy, but in the bigger picture not every golden blond colored beer can look like molson and still taste great. like a badly dressed model, really...

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 24, 2008
On tap at C’est What? OUTSTANDING! Lots of pine and citrus grapefruit aromas. The intense hop flavor is great. This seems like a much stronger beer than the 5.45 ABV belies. Long lingering tongue drying palate.

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Victory Cafe, Toronto tap: Pours a copper colour with a white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, with a solid malt backbone. Taste is on the way light side of the IPA world. For a beer called Hop Addict, there really is not that much in the way of bitterness or hoppiness. Somewhat sweet and mellow. This is not a bad session, but it is hardly an exemplary IPA.

auerbrau (3147) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 9, 2009
On tap at the beer bistro. Pours a vibrant clear orange-amber, with a nice white rim. Smell is juicy, dank, hop resin and California pine woods round. Inviting. Flavor is just plain hop dank. Wow. This has serious hop flavor. Strong, up front, and insanely fresh. Tending towards the British hop flavor characters, but still with tons of dripping resinous character. Wow. A base of caramel lays under for support. Long finish in dry, cascade-like hops. Nice.

On tap at Volo. Aroma of piney, citrus hops, with some malt too. Light copper, small custard head. Taste starts off very hoppy, a fine malty backbone soon presents itself. Medium bodied, well balanced between the sweet malt and it’s appreciated bitterness. Really fine example. Kudos to Ralph for inspiring the brewer!

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
En fût au Beer Bistro. Une bière cuivrée et son mince col de mousse. Un nez de céréales toastées et de houblons aux consonnances fruitées et florales. Au goût, des notes de caramel qui valsent sur des houblons parfumés et amérisants. Une bouche légère et son effervescence bien menée. Une texture crémeuse. En finale, une amertume agréable qui s’étend avec gentillesse.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 I’m a big fan of hops, but not insane hops, and this is right up my alley. Beautiful aroma of citrus, and hops. nice bitterness, but not too much bitterness, just enough to keep you comming back for more. I often have this at the Beer Bistro during my lunch! awesome stuff! Hey Durham, BOTTLE THIS!!!
