Pours golden with big lasting head, moderate carbonation. Immediate aromas of those C’s hit the nose with a light sweetness. Strong malt comes across the palate in an attempt to balance the hops. Slightly sweet, full-bodied. Solid.

sloth (2401) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Small tan head, creamy appearence with good retention and thin strips of lace. Gold to light copper in color, good clarity. Spicey, earthy hop nose, light citrus and abundant crystal malt aromas. Body is medium, lightly oily on the palate with a soft carbonation, lightly resiny. Orangey citrus flavors up front, light wood notes along with an equal amount of lightly toasty malts to balance things out. Lightly fruity and hop juicey. Fairly dry, fruity finish with a lingering bitterness. Props to SDbruboy for the bottle!

I was amazed by this, as I think Double Barrel is overrated, this was amazing. GREAT hop taste dominates everything, even some of that illusive bubblegum flavor (Like in Full Sail’s Slipknot, I wish I could get some more of that too). Really pleased, and surprised by how good it was.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle… Clear, light golden ale with a small, frothy, white head. Tropical and citrus fruit aroma. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with relaxed carbonation. Fruity flavor with tannic bitterness. Toffee sweetness and grapefruit pith bitterness finish things off. Thanks go out to mgumby10 for the brew!

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Courtesy Odeed. Pours a clear light orange color, with a small white head. Smells of some big grapefruit hops, very piney, with a crispness about it. The flavor was also very crisp and sharp, with a big hop character and a nice hop bitterness to it. Prety juicy grapefruit citrus was also quite evident. Nice and crisp IPA, full flavored with a great palate. Another quality brew from a quality brewer.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 12, 2008
On Tap. Pours with a light, rocky, off-white head covering a clear amber body. Great lacing from the tap left on my glass, decent retention aswell. Aroma is of floral and slightly spicey hops, and a light bit of caramel. Taste is a bit watery at first, then a light caramel and biscut malt, followed by a pine hoppy bitterness towards the finish. Watery mouthfeel, light carbonation.
