Dogbrick (9366) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Sample at Oslo in Galway. Hazy dark golden color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light body with flavors of toasted malt and mildly bitter hops. The finish is lightly bitter with a short herbal hops aftertaste. Barely average overall.

From 500ml bottle, chilled. Very clean, tasty IPA. Heavily hopped (depending on batch/frshness) with quite a bitter finish. I found it extremely enjoyable but maybe not one for the hop novice. A go-to IPA.

mcberko (9224) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
On tap at The Black Sheep, pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Nose brings out piney hops upfront and just enough biscuity malt. Flavour is dry and balanced, with piney hops, dry bready and biscuity malt, and dry hops. Dry, floral and piney. Very good.

Ambro206 (272) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2015
Birra ambrata, schiuma bianca. Aroma floreale e di frutta estiva. Luppolo in evidenza ma piacevole. Carbonazione adeguata. Leggera astringenza nel finale.

kathouse (1237) - Nevada, USA - FEB 17, 2015
The thing I noticed most about this beer was that it has a nutty taste. The hops are piney and somewhat herbal. There’s a good citrus nose. But I think there’s a hazelnut flavor beneath all the hop layers. It’s not bad, just a little distracting for me.
