bubbleflubber (1816) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Pours a burnt orange into the glass, with a ton of yeastie floaties, a sticky head and slathering lace. The nose shows some astringency. Flavors are pale and caramel malts, light citrus, biscuity flour, and finishes with a medium pine hop. The flavors aren’t extremely complex, nor is the substantive value in the body, which makes for a lackluster mouthfeel... rather dull and inactive on the palate. I think the ideas were there, but the execution suffers in producing a top-tier IPA.

BK7 (731) - Turner, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2014
On tap at the Oregon Gardens Brewfest. Citrus with malty sweetness in the background. Bitterness throughout but the brew is a bit off balance a weak in the middle. Dry finish that fades quickly.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle-pours hazy dark orange with a small soapy white head around the rim of the glass. nose is mostly leaffy herbal tea like notes-smells like a british hop. yet another leafy almost british hop ipa here-dont know how fresh this is, but if it is fresh, then this is awful. Well i just saw the bottle date and it was bottled back in November. not good.
