Guest draft @ Dark Lord Day. Pours copper with thin tan head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Aroma bitter flavor through out. Still angry none of the pizza port taps were working, but this was a great second choice.

Here’s my dirtly little secret... Firestone Walker Union Jack. Similar hopping schedule to Pliny (Simcoe, Columbus which is Tomohawk in this brew, Centennial) the only diference is Cascade... but you can taste the difference. The point being "YOU CAN TASTE THE DIFFERENCE". This little dark horse is up there. I got 6 and will probably get 6 more... crack into it - you’ll see!

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 21, 2009
Tap @ O’Briens. Poured clear copper-gold with a short white head. Moderate lacing. For a straight IPA, this was fantastic. Sometimes, you get the DIPA that calls itself an IPA, but this is jsut a well-done, big-hop single IPA. Crisp, fresh pink grapefruit, pine needles, orange peel, and mango in the nose. Sharp mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation. No stickiness in the finish. The aroma follows through nicely in the taste. Grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, and that bite of resin. The caramel malt stays muted and does not turn this into a candied mess. Please sell more bottles of this in San Diego.

Moosington (28) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - APR 17, 2009
Bomber from Hi-Time. Aroma is a sweet malty and pine/citrus combo, though not too heavy on the nose. Pours a nice vibrant golden color with a quickly dissipating small white head. Flavor follows aroma, excellent malty, spicy and citrus notes with a hop kick that stays with you. Excellent mouth feel, kinda full but still refreshing. Very nice output.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 17, 2009
Honey colored. Strong, peaty, spicy hop aroma. Sweet malt backdrop to a powerful grassy hop taste, with a spicy, bready finish. Barely a bitter aftertaste. Awesome IPA. Could use more body.
