Draft at WBF Raleigh on 5/2/09. Amber bodied with a short white head. Nose is hoppy and vibrant with pine, caramel, light maple syrup and sweet malts. Taste is big citrus, pine, chewy, sweet malts, caramel and light spice. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Ends with more citrus, pine oils, caramel, light toffee and sweet malts. Nice!

GT2 (8507) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 651mL from Foothills- first bottling on Sexual Chocolate Day 2011. The pour is a clear gold with a thick, yellow, creamy head with sticky lace. Aroma of starfruit, caramel, chocolate malt, some major toffee, mild alcohol. Smells similar to a light barleywine. Taste is light, creamy, moving to very dry and nutty bitter. Rich, dry almond and walnut flesh and skin. Very attenuated and bitter. Not a quenching IPA. Palate comes across as very watery making me not the biggest fan.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep golden with a nice sticky head and good lace. Aroma is fruity- citrus and some mango with good resinous pine and some grapefruit as it warms up a bit and just bit of toffee and toasted malts in the back. Flavor is low on malts, but high on hops which is nice- grassy, yet still lots of citrus, and grapefruit with a resinous tacky finish.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - FEB 18, 2009
Not too shabby. Pours a nice orange color with an ivory head. Aroma is heavy on the hops, especially for a regular IPA. Flavor is nice and crisp, very mellow hops, good mix of citrus and piney flavors. Touches of candied sugar and toffee. Balanced and finishes clean. Nice.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pours amber with white head. Good bubble gum hop nose. Really not a distinct flavor. Quite bitter though. Kind of light body.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 4, 2009
On Tap at Harrison’s in Cary, NC - this brew poured a nice orange color with a thin white head and decent lacing. The aroma was lots of floral hops, grapefruit and pine. Taste was straight forward hoppy with the grapefruit, lemon and a slight detection of spice to round out the great flavor. Nice solid IPA.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Sample @ Foothills. Dark orange pour, with a bit of a watery quality to it. A bit of the Simcoe hop came through, which saved it for me. Overall I was disappointed.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2008
On draft at the Flying Saucer in Raleigh. Very clear orange pour with a string of head around the edge. Floral hoppy aroma comes through nicely. Lots of grapefruit and other citrus notes coming through in the aroma and flavor. Lightly grassy and spicy as well. Hop dominant, but lightly balanced by caramel malt. Quite tasty and one that I will order often!
