[Draft @ UJ Manatawny] Lightly hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, toasted malts, caramel, pine, and citrus. Taste of caramel malts, nuts, toast, citrus, pine, grass, some grapefruit, and alcohol in the finish.

25 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a nice dense one inch off-white head that had amazing retention and left tons of lacing. Really great bright citrusy hop aroma, it’s like smelling a fresh ripe naval orange. Plenty of hearty caramel maltiness below all those hops as well. Bright grapefruity hops burst on the tongue with very restrained bitterness, this is a nice display of hoppiness. The heavy caramel malt backbone really supports the hops well without being too sweet and overbearing. Very well masked alcohol for such a high ABV. I think this, along with their Insidious might be the best beers that I’ve had from these guys. These folks are really on the right track of late.

I really loved this impy IPA from BBW. They seemed to really focus on the bitter and spicy notes of the hops they used. But they also had a nice concentration of malts to balance it all out. I got a lot of piney hops in the nose, along with some breadiness and earthy tone. The flavors were incredibly delicious and smooth. Besides the spicy and floral hops, I tasted some bread, earth, pine and bitter grapefruit. The finish was quite bitter and dry as well. This was one delicious IPA!

Poured a hazy orange color with an off-white head. Hop forward aroma with notes of orange peels and old malt. Hoppy citrus flavor with thick caramel malt. Orangey. Warming with a medium body.

750 ml bottle; thanks to michael-pollack for the trade; pours hazy light amber with foamy white head; earthy hops, stale oranges, super sweet malts on the nose; sticky and earthy mouthfeel; hops muted as this is more of a super sweet, malt bomb; caramel, raw sugar and some mild harshness in the finish; sticky sweet and a little thicker as it warms; rich, malty and chewy

750ml bottle. Smell of fruit and caramel with a bit of piney hops. Deep orange color with no head. Taste is very sweet,lots of tropical fruits,some hops. Palate is not good at all: way undercarbonated,too sweet,unbalanced towards the malt. This beer was one hell of a dissapointment. I was expecting to be trampled by the hops in this brew,what i got was a glass of oily tropical juice with hardly any bubbles. To top it off it cost 13.00$ or so. Stay away!

750ml corked and caged. Watery looking orangish golden with little head. Pretty sweet and floral with honey bread. Pilthy grapefruit, honesuckle, dish water, peach, resin. Really sweet and syrupy. Tons of sugars and caramel with a squeeze of citrus. More of a barleywine.
