crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Pours dark amber, white head. Cascade aroma all the way. Flavor is good for an IPA it’s not all just hops, roasted malts, crystal malts, a touch of chocolate, and a spicy cascade hoppiness all the way. Nice not having an overlly hoppy IPA.

Shared with Ebbies7. Tons of hop and fruit flavors in this brew! Very much delicious. If I could compare it to anything while drinking it, it would be Dreadnaught IIPA, with the flavors and feels. It had fantastic balance, a great color and the aromas were sweet and flavorful. The bitterness hangs around with you in your mouth for a while. Enoy this one slowly! Hoppin’ Frog is fantastic.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2007
Yummm!! When I used to think of Akron, Ohio, I thought of Devo, but now I will also think of this hearty, robust IPA for the ages. There’s no skimping on the hops or the malts here, and it is so well balances, I want to jump on the next plain to Ohio to get more. With a big brown-amber body and some cozying lace this brew is at 6.8% ABV, right where I think American IPA’s ought to be. I hope to try this one again before I croak.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy brownish amber color, decent sized off white head, some lacing. Aroma is floral hops, spice, malt, caramel. Flavor is malt, bitter hops, grass, caramel. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, malty, bitter finish. This really did not get my gonads going, I could take it or leave it. Seems to be overly malty for an IPA, imo. The hops profile is one that I am not terribly fond of. Decent.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy deep coppery ruby colored with 1-finger off-white head and tons of lace. Aroma is huge tropical fruit, solid caramel malt, black pepper, mango, tangerine. Tastes caramel malty, with layers of citrus and tropical fruit and a rich, complex palate.

Cornfield (5541) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2007
This has a deep reddish-amber body with a healthy ecru head that does some intricate lacing. It has a solid grapefruit and pine aroma that allows for little of the sweet malt to ooze through. The malty backbone does prove strong enough to support a heavy hop bitterness. Sadly the hops fade all too abruptly in the finish, the caramel malt coming forward at the end to add too much sweetness. Decent stuff except for the end.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - FEB 14, 2007
22 oz. bottle via trade with OhioDad - Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Very light spotty lacing. Has a nice pine and citrus hop aroma. Flavor has a nice balance. Has a nice toasty malt flavor up front to go along with the hops. No unpleasant, lingering bitter aftertaste. Palate seems a bit thin. Medium body. A very nice IPA. Thanks Scott.

jason (1682) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Bottle Thanks to Sliffy. Poured a dark amber body with decent size head, good carbonation. Aroma is hops, citrus, grapefruit, slightly malty. Taste ismlaty and sweet. Hoppy taste with small amount of citrus and a little chocolate. Good beer but a little to malty for the style, hoping for more hops(I’m in a hoppy mood).
