Fatehunter (1616) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 26, 2013
A finger of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body. The aroma is a mild grapefruit and lemon. The taste has a moderate pine bitterness balanced nicely with a malt backbone. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Here’s a solid IPA that isn’t overpowering on the IBUs.

rosenbergh (8316) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 28, 2015
12 oz bottle. (White Cross Liquor) Las Vegas, NV.
Clear deep golden colour with a huge foamy white head. Not the freshest one I believe. Candies, toffee, fruity hops, mild bitterness and some caramel malty sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is not-so-fresh hops, mild bitterness and some sweetness. The hops didn’t make the time.

On tap at Brooks Bar and Deck in Lake Tahoe. Pretty mild bitterness, easy drinking IPA. More of an APA really.

nearbeer (4073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Pint on tap. Clear orange-copper with a disappearing head. Mild nose of caramel, dusty grain and citrus. Taste is the same mild mix with some cardboard and more old grain. Light-medium body has smooth carbonation and a good balance, just not much flavor.

BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2015
On tap at the brewpub in Reno. Citrus and pine with a heavy malty sweetness in the background. Weak in the middle. Light bitterness at the end that fades quickly.

callmemickey (3511) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Dark golden colored body with a medium to large white head and soapy lacing. Florals, misc. ,citrus and pine. Light crackery malts. Relatively mellow in every aspect. Medium bodied with moderate to gentle carbonation, muted bitterness, a touch of malty sweetness and a somewhat mutes finish.

slowrunner77 (6761) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 17, 2014
"very hoppy, in the nose and flavor. a local favorite. darker orange, great strong aroma and hoppy (cascade and others) bitterness. similar hop profile tho Hop Ottin IPA from Boonville. 2011-finally bottled, but it’s mellowed, to a fault. a little to tame and a touch watery. 3.4-5 on tap, <3 in the bottle (and now can). oh well..."

AmEricanbrew (6289) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Clear amber color with ivory head. Mild dank, skanky hop aromas with tropical fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Spicy, floral hop flavors with a stale pale malt base brew____drying finish----a bit bland.

coachd (270) - Missouri, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Smells sweet for an IPA but I like it. Tastes unassuming up front but the hops kick in afterward. Highly drinkable IPA. Had to dock a point for the aftertaste, it's a little funny.

Bulk_Carrier (2595) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a half minute. There was some light trickling lacing sliding into the beer. The smell was a burnt breadiness with a burnt citrus hops. The taste was exactly the same with a slight cardboard aftertaste. On the palate, this sat about a light on the body with not much of a sessionability about it due to the off taste. Overall, this "highly evolved" beer maybe is devolving. I went through an entire sixer just so it wasn’t just the one beer, but it was all the same. I didn’t care for this at all.

Draft at Jernigan’s. An average West Coast IPA heavy on the sweet malt side of things. Bit of tropical citrus, a bitter finish. Not too exciting.
