Pretty great IPA, I’m getting some pretty sweet flavors, almost berry - ish I’m not sure if it’s because of something I just ate. Pretty cloudy appearance. Nice bitterness. Gonna let warm up a little and think more about it.

22 oz bottle. Tasted on 2/11/15. Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pours to a cloudy hazy orange /yellow color. The aroma has citrus, grass, earthy notes to it. The taste has a balance of strong malt & some hop bitterness. As it warmed the flavor improved greatly. Overall a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nous ne sommes qu’un petit point bleu dans cet univers majestueux, mais il n’y a rien de minime avec cette Blue Dot, une DIPA concoctée par la brasserie Hair of the Dog Brewing, originaire de Portland en Oregon. Un mince film de mousse se sauve promptement d’une robe brunâtre à l’aspect marécageux qui laisse deviner une forte présence lupuline et de seigle. Le bouquet est parfaitement à point et combine la facette épicée du seigle et les cannonades résineuses des cultivars de houblons utilisés. L’amertume attaque le palais de plein fouet, mais s’esquive rapidement pour laisser la chance aux céréales d’étaler toutes leurs saveurs qui sont majoritairement épicées, mais également légèrement sucrées. Ce côté sucré coupe l’amertume un tantinet, les houblons en profitant donc pour prouver leur existence en dégageant des notes citronnées et gazonnées assez intenses. La texture collante et la carbonatation sont en excellente juxtaposition, et créent ainsi une bière si facile à boire.

Poured from a 22. The beer looked like something from the American Pie movie. Aroma was a bit barnyard. Taste is a pretty decent standard IPA offering. Somewhat sweet with a barnyard flavor. Not bad.

22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, citrusy, and piney, with hints of grass, caramel, and barnyard. Taste/Palate: over-carbonated; starts slightly sweet, and finishes with a long bitterness.

Nice overall, well balanced but not memorable. Smells of citrus, tropical fruit, hops and honey. Taste starts with peaches, followed by honey and a not too bitter aftertaste. Had in the bottle.

22oz bottle into wine glass. Park Rapids, MN. Appearance is cloudy orange/yellow with massive head and lots of lacing. Sediment on the bottom. Bottle foamed when opening. Aroma is nice, strong grapefruit, orange. Taste is bitter. Palate is medium, very carbonated, clean finish. Overall the beer is really nice. Aroma is top notch. Carbonation is a little much though.

Bottle at Toronado SD. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with no head. Aroma is tangerines and pine. Flavor follows. Alcohol is noticeable. Flavor falls flat. Finishes very dry and clean. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
