durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2013
Draft pour, looking a nice bright hazy yellow with a firm white head. Nose was huge citrus--lemon and grapefruit as well as tart orange with a spiciness that showed itself on the tongue. Some tropical notes. Hoppier than expected, in a wonderful way. Citrus, fruit, and pepper, all well balanced in a full-bodied IPA. I could drink so much of this.

CanIHave4Beers (3198) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Liz Gamble’s gentleman suitor.


Pours a hazy gold with a decent enough head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is hop forward with a good little bit of melon like hops as well as some citrus and a good bit of that funkiness that I only ever get from citra hops. There is a touch of carmel & grass in there as well.

The flavor is a touch on the bitter/astringent side for what I prefer in an IPA, it’s not bad though it’s got a nice bunch of juicy hoppiness and keeps things very low on the sweetness. Some orange rind & tropical fruit notes are in there, I think the more I drink it the less I’m getting that astringency, not sure if it’s my palate warming up to it or the beer "opening up" but I am enjoying it a lot more halfway through the glass than I was on the onset.





I am hoping Ajax searches for Lushawn again sometime soon.

Great Pour. Golden yellow with a light white head. Flavor is hoppy and a nice aftertaste.

Had on tap at Barley’s with the weirdest "french fries" ever. Can’t always just a book by its cover. Pours really pale and clear- looks like it will have nothing to it. Taste is miles from what I expected. Crisp and clean- tons of grapefruit and flowers. Maybe the lighter malts let hops come through more cleanly? Decently bitter finish, but not off-putting. As good as Hoppyum if not better.

Ruckus Morrisville on draft. One of my local favorites, my go to IPA. Lots of grapefruit on the nose, quickly disipating head. Crisp and refreshing - great summer beverage.

alexsdad06 (5342) - Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Draft at Barley’s August 2013. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized frothy off white head. The aroma and flavor has resin, citrus and earthy hops, caramel, toasted bread with good bitterness to the finish. Solid enough IPA.

BlowOffTube (444) - Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2014
Thanks mwbrady! Pours a golden color with thin white head. Light juicy fruit aroma. Orange and tangerine citrus dominate. Semi dry finish little bittering. Light body light carbonation. Refreshing.

Emeister84 (867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2014
Juicy hop aromas, peach, mango, some floral tones. Clear orange-gold with a fairly lasting white head. Bitter, hop-forward, juicy hop flavors are dominant, some grainy malts, a little soapy at the end. Medium bodied, somewhat sticky, finishes with a long-lingering hoppy bite.
