Beerman6686 (3892) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2012
This poured a darker orange color with a white head. Aroam was of caramel, stale hops, and toasted malt. Flavor was much the same, malty with light bitterness, but not much hop flavor. Meh.

solidfunk (3022) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2012
This should really just be called an American Strong Ale, not an IPA. There isn’t enough hop profile. Rated as an american strong ale it’s not bad, just doesn’t fit the style. Smell is boozy and caramel-like. Pours clear brown. Has a little sweet plum, some oakiness. Decent drink if you don’t pay attention to the label. Thanks to Adrian for bringing me this one.

burg326 (3255) - Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2012
22 ounce bottle pours an amber color. Aromas of pine, caramel, grapefruit and citrus. Flavors are the same with some citrus peel to add to the bitterness. Decent beer overall, doesnt taste like a 9%er. Thanks Eric for the trade.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 12, 2012
22 oz bottle. Clear light amber with a tiny off white head. Aroma of mostly sweet caramel with some pine and citrus. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, light hop bitterness and light alcohol. Medium body with mild carbonation and a syrupy mouth feel. Not a big fan of this one, super sweet.

Aubrey (3418) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 Malt-forward IPA. Cider appearance with a thin head. Decent hop flavors. Earthy, zingy, grassy and herbal. Malt flavors are loaded with sweet caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread and scones. Has a subtle tobacco note also. Alcohol is hidden pretty well.

reebtogi (3838) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2012
650ml bomber listed as 7.6%ABV pours a golden orangeish color with a finger of white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is very earthy hops. Taste is huge earthy bitterness with hints of citrus balanced with some grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with a little carbonation. A pretty decent IPA which is a little different than most I have had from the northwestern US.

mcberko (5372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2011
22 oz. bottle, pours an amber orange with almost no head. Aroma of resinous, fruity hops, syrup, caramel malts and lots of grapefruit. Flavour is syrupy and cloyingly sweet, overriding the strong hoppiness that would otherwise be quite pronounced. Medicinal qualities too, with candy sweet finish. Nasty - drainpour.
