shigadeyo (3388) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2006
UPDATED: APR 6, 2007 8/05/2006: Dark orange, almost amber color. Nice foamy head that stays around. Aroma is hops with a bit of evergreen or something. Not overly crisp flavor, there is a fair amount of maltiness to balance the hops and something else lingering around that I canít put my finger on. As a result, the hoppiness is not overpowering. The alcohol is well hidden (I had no idea the alcohol was so high!). A good beer from Great Lakes, but not their best, in my opinion. I was hoping for a more hops in the flavor and finish. 22 oz. draught, $4.95 at the Winking Lizard Tavern (Crosswoods). Rating: 6 3 6 3 12 = 3.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2006
This beer is a clear dark golden-amber color with a medium fluffy off-white head with decent retention. Thin sheets of lacing. Aroma of grassy hops and citrus. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Piney hops at first, with sweet malt and spices in the background. At 7.5%, the beer seems to straddle the line between "Regular" and "Imperial" IPA. The finish is bitter hops at first, with a resiny malt undertone. The aftertaste is long-lasting and dry. As with most of GLBCís beers, this is well done.

holdenn (2100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2006
on tap @ Underbar - Chicago: Orange in color with a thin off white head. Aromas of tangerine, orange and hops. I didnít know it was an ipa when i ordered but now i can tell, but not by much. The flavors are hoppy, grapefruit, orange, and malt with a lightly bitter finish. Although the abv seems higher than it tasted, this would make a good session beer.

Nice hops. I swear I got a taste of some strawberry and/or bubble gum. Typical bitterness in the finish. Fruity aromas. Good but not ground breaking.

Not especially hoppy for an IPA. Floral aftertaste. Nothing that sperates it form others in the same category.

Thanks to Sliffy for this one. Pours out a light copper color with a small white head. The aroma is rather plain, some hops there but not overlly obvious. The taste is somewhat light for the alcohol content, but what it lacked on aroma it made up on taste. Nice balance only complaint is that it wasnít hoppy enough. Flavors of floral hops and some sweet malts.

Pretty pale gold color, crystal clear, with smallish white head. Aroma has mild musty, citrusy hops, mildly spicey, with a bit of light caramel and kilned malts. Flavor has grainy malts, bit of spicey hops, touch of vanilla and caramel. Finish has a mildly bitter, smooth finish.
