NachlamSie (2783) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bomber from Bruisin’. Pours a hazy orange with a good head. Aroma is definitely in the IPA territory. Though the hops aren’t super defined, this has plenty of citrusy and piney goodness to make me happy. The flavor is pleasingly bitter with a dry finish. Good even hop delivery in the mouth and some subtle fruity undertones are noted. I like this one. It’s solid.

TURDFERGUSON (3961) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle. Orange golden with a small white head. Nose is light floral, pine, citrus, toasted malts. Flavor is grassy and herbal with light pine notes, lots of toasted malts. Pretty solid in-state IPA.

Pour is clear orange with nice white head, aroma brings notes of toffee, grass, pine some slight orange and tangerine notes as well. Taste is a nice mix of grass, pine and citrus notes, touch of caramel and biscuit notes, finishes with a nice pine note and slightly bitter. Bottle thanks to Sam!

OldGrowth (2699) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2011
bottle, from Raleigh Whole Foods. good aroma, sweet. pine, orange, bready biscuity wheat scent. Clean brownish orange color, small head, though I poured slow, Good lace. Sweet Bitter flavor. lite body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish, that fades away. Pretty darn tasty. not a over the top kind of ipa, just a good every day brew, 7% still has kick. hate to say it has balance, but nice mix on malt & hop flavor.
