A brilliant, dry pale ale with an aggressive hop character balanced with a smooth finish. A bold beer best consumed with a stiff upper lip.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Bottle at Mellow Mushroom. Golden pour, white head. Very resinous and citrusy aroma with a small bit of malt. Flavor is bitter as hell, lots of herbal/resin hops. Light malt bill. Crapload of hops...too much actually. Unbalanced for my tastes.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo ’06... Mostly clear golden ale with a small, frothy, white head. Subtle nose with traces of herbal, spicy hops and gentle malt. Maybe a touch of diacetyl... toffee and butterscotch notes. Moderately sweet, moderately bitter flavors of peach, orange and grapefruit. Medium-bodied and silky with moderate carbonation. Lengthy, mildly bitter, grassy finish.

hopdog (10255) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2005
Acquired in trade with goldtwins. Poured a medium, cloudy golden color with a very small white head. Aromas of flowers and very light citrus. Tastes of flowers and light citrus as well. Very lightly bitter with a very light sweetness to it. Weaker version of an IPA.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2010 Sample at Flying Saucer in Nashville. This brew is a clear pale orange color with a medium foamy beige head that lasts awhile. Sheet of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits, along with hops. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops and malt, plus some floral and piney notes. The finish is mildly hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

Sammy (9973) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2008
The aroma is not hoppy, its more on the spicey characteristic. The appearance is cloudy yellow, with dot bubbles. The taste is well balanced and rather chai, saison-like. Its bitter and more offset by spicey-yeastness than by the normal sweetness. Nicely done change of pace.

crossovert (9962) - Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
12 oz brown bottle. Date is 07/28/10. It has a really nice appearance, it is a clear gold with a hue of orange with a big foamy white head that sticks for a bit then recedes with some nice lacing. The smell kind of has the reminiscence of urine along with some rotten pineapple. Not the best. The flavor is also not great. It has a hue malt presence, almost like liquid bread. No bitterness, no real hop flavors. Almost a corn flavor. Foul. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-29-2010 05:05:36

shrubber85 (9452) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle. Flowery apple/apricot aroma - slightly musty. Medium yellow with small head. Very unique hops flavor - initially just a dry sensation with the bitterness building to a crescendo then very slowly fading away. Slight pine flavor - never seems to get too bitter. Impressive - the hops characteristics of this beer are a work of art - incredibly well-balanced without going over the edge.

DrSilverworm (9089) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2013
12oz bottle, from Jungle Jim’s in Eastgate. Clear golden color, thin white head. Couple splecks of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Not bitter, nor assertive like your typical IPA. Just a moderate bitterness, light sweet taste. Some light citusy, lightly piney hop. More malt forward, but it’s not a caramel, sweet malt, more clean and biscuity. As far as IPAs go, though, this doesn’t really satisfy in the way that they usually do. Sub par for the category.

jercraigs (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2008
2008-05-08.Hazy orange amber with a small creamy off white head. (3+) Pleasant hoppy aroma, light citrus and mild resin. Similarly pleasant hops in the flavour, muted resin, light citrus hints. (6+) Smooth average palate. (3+) Pretty nice, but strikes me as probably having a little more oomph to the hops when fresher or on tap. Bottle shared by Jon Walker
