Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2006
Bomber. Poured a clear, lighter shade of copper with a tall, well-retained cap of beige head. The aroma was most certainly heavy... rocking rich, rum-soaked caramel, grapefruit, and something akin to candi sugar. The flavor was even bigger... with lots of sweet malt at the core (caramel, grapefruit meat, and toffee), alcohol laced throughout (became almost oppressive as this neared room temp), and a sharp bitter pine finish. Rye spiciness also came through at the finish. Heavier on the palate. Seemed off-balance... could have been great.

Off-white thin head. Dark amber body with lots of carbonation. Flavor of bread, almost cookie. After taste of fruit, maybe grapes. Different for an IPA, good stuff.

I am not a big hop head.I did not like this as much as everyone else.I am rating this based on they succeeded at what they were trying to do.Heavy malts and hops are present.Along the same lines of Gonzo.Some citrus and dirt are what was present on the buds.A bit too bitter of an end.For this style great job.

Indra (2607) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 25, 2006
22oz. bottle. Powerful, virtually intoxicating aroma of pine, grapefruit, lemon, floral sweetness and lightly nutty, toffeeish malts, along with hints of spice, perfume and alcohol. Deep, dark red-amber color, clear, with a fine, mostly lasting off-white head. Hops dominate the flavor profile as befits the style, contributing plenty of sharp, juicy citrus character, and blending with lighter amounts of toasty, nutty, sweet and lightly bready malts, perhaps a hint of spice from the rye and towards the finish, a goodly amount of peppery alcohol makes itself apparent, the bitterness reaching a crescendo at this stage as well. Palate is resinous, slick and moderately effervescent, body is of course full. Highly flavorful take on the style, which crosses some boundaries into Barleywine and/or American Strong territory.

Zeswaft (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Ha, what a crazy gimmick for a brewery. Nevertheless, this was a shockingly good IPA. Big citrus hops up front and a spicy counterbalance of the rye. good job.

(Bottle) Pours a dark amber body with a medium beige head. Aroma of toffee, grapefruit, chocolate, vinous, and toasted rye bread. Flavor of rich malts, caramel, and hops; good balance.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2007 Nice and bright red-amber hue with a frothy head. Texture was really nice, too. Swishing it around in the mouth made it become even creamier and thicker. Very toasted, with hints of dark bread, brown sugar and nuts. Sweet candy. Hops were grassy and electric, yet complementing to the malts. Some interesting spice aromas poked through (perfume, cinnamon, roast, allspice) and made a quick but strong presence. Curiously enjoyable and flavorful.
