Pours a nice orange color with a medium head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Very crisp flavors with limited malts, creating a nice hoppy brew. An IPA worth trying.

nimbleprop (5196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Sampled at the Savor DC event. Pours a clear orange amber with a frothy, rocky head. Aroma pine, hop resin and oils with some tropical fruits. Crisp, clean flavor or oranges, pine and citrus zest. Flavorful and drinkable. Quick side note: Jamie and the guys from Foothills were without a doubt some of the nicest guys at the entire event.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Draft sample. Light hazy amber orange body. Big, catty Simcoe nose full of dried lemongrass and fresh cut grass, with a pungent odor more in line with Simcoe/urine/cattiness than cannibus/dank/wet hops. Flavor is sharply bitter and drying, direct hops and a heavy load of bitterness, with little to no malt astringency. Overall a really delicious IPA that hints of higher alcohol.

Not being familiar with this brewer, I didn’t quite know what to expect, but in the end, the label says it all. This beer is hop-packed, with a great, bitter flavor that shows off the Simcoe hops. It;s bitter, undoubtedly, but there is a progression to the bitterness that opens on the palate and makes the drinking experience worthwhile. I really got more than I expected out of this beer and its tremendous length on the palate. Good stuff, and nice smooth character.

Butters (3848) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Amazing hop aroma. Simcoe is obvious in the flavor, but not overbearing and matches in perfect harmony with the other hops. Bitter finish. Very tasty.

Naka (708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2008
On tap at the brewery. A deep amber color with a small eggshell creamy head. The nose has a lot of citrus and floral character. Some peach grassy notes as well. The flavor is more earthy than fruity. Some nice dank citrus does come through. A really solid thick body. Kind of reminds me of Bells Two Hearted, but not quite as good.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2008
They were Randalling (to borrow a Dogfish term) this puppy at the World Beer Fest in Raleigh, and the hops were fresh as can be. Poured right through fresh hops, my 2-oz pour had about 5 little hop leaves in it. Nice hop bitterness and good skunkiness. Citrus and intense up front, but lovely back palate. A great way to enjoy this brew. Nice one!

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2008
Tap at Flying Saucer in Charlotte. small white creamy head into clear amber body with a light lacing remaining. aromas of moderate grapefruit, light malts and a touch of some skunk (not bad though). flavor is sweet into light bitter. long finish duration. slightly above average carbanation. dry, sticky textured mouthfeel. Good IPA.

jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Pours a clear amber with medium sized white head. The aroma has tons of hops. The flavor has a bit of sweet caramel but mostly dominated by the bitterness. Good long finish.
