hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Draft... DLD’08... Murky amber/orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is bursting at the seams with earthy, citric and Simcoe hops... cat piss, grapefruit and pine with an afterthought of toffee. Full-bodied and creamy with reserved carbonation. Citrusy grapefruit pith and bitter rind. Well-balanced finish with a tangy snap at the wee end.

thanks tpd975 for the share. Gold wax. copper pour, white head. aroma, light malts, caramel, hops, mostly citrus and pine. flavors, hops profile is more attenuated than expected for a dipa, caramel malts was much more present, some pine/floral aspects with a mild carbonation. Hoppy side is moderate offering a mild bitter finish. Not a bad beer but not sure this one aged too well.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Bomber. Poured slightly hazy peachy-orange with a short cap of beige head. The aroma picked up thick doses of grapefruit, pine resin, and sweet caramel that were presented very well together.. some zesty orange and a bit of spicy alcohol on the back of the nose. The flavor found caramel and a touch of toffee at the core surrounded by orange, pine, and slight perfumey bitterness.. finished strong, but still balanced with lots of citrus and piney bitterness. Medium-plus bodied with a great resiny bitter feel throughout.. long finish with more hops. Great one!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle: Pours a transparent orange bronze with a foamy off-white head. Big, fresh piny grapefruity assertive hop nose has a touch of light fruity notes and sweet caramel malt. Body starts with good full sweet malty character and lots of fresh grapefruity flavor hops. FInishes smooth, crisp and bittersweet. A nice double IPA.

TheAlum (6942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2008
On tap at the brewery on my last visit home for a job interview. Poured a hazy amber with a creamy offwhite head. A prominent citrus hoppy nose that is extremely pleasant. Initial tastes of pine and grapefruit citrus that is balanced by a fairly large malt presence. Finishes bitter and yummy. A great beer that I just HAD to pick up the bomber from the initial release of upon finish.

Bottle. Clear orange amber with a thin sheen. Big spruce sap hoppy aroma. medium/full body and smooth. Nice hop driven flavors of spruce sap, citrusy orange and grapefruit on a lightly sweet pale malt base. Very good hop show case without a lot of bitterness. Great IPA

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 27, 2008
Tap at Flossmoor: Hazy deep amber hue with a small but lasting frothy head and left nice lace upon the pint glass. The aroma has notes of grapefruit, mango, herbal and piney hops, earthy yeast and some white pepper esters. The taste has a nice bitterness and acidity without overpowering. Biscuity malt and hop spice finish rounds into a tasty treat for the palate. The mouth feel is aggressive and biting with a dry finish. A really nice brew and glad to see it was bottled as well.
