Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2010
In short: A tangy and herbal IPA. Nice tasty brew
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving it from after4ever. Thanks a lot Tom
The look: Cloudy orangey-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: The hoppy nose if vibrant with freshness, very tangy, herbaceous and with plenty of pine needles. Taste has toasted white bread, orange peels, candied fruits, pine-cone juice, biscuits, fresh green grass. The finish brings a mild-medium sharp bitterness, a mild tartness and a surprising dryness. Pine-tree resin on the comeback. A bit of white sugar I could have done without. Body is slender and the carbonation is a little too much. Ok, so this is an Organic/Bio beer. An environmental friendly beer. Good. I say Earth first. We will strip the other planets later.

GABF 2009, Copper/golden orange pour, leafy hoparoma. Big Pacific NW hop flavor. Great balance. One of the better IPA’s I sampled in Denver & that includes judging the Aplha King @ Falling Rock

Sampled at GCBF 2010. Hayish malt with green hops. Pale golden, low cream. Amarillo flavour on hayish malt. Medium to light body, sparkly mouthfeel. Grassy finish. Falls of a cliff at the end.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Nose is citrus - grapefruit and orange, floral hops, grassy sweetness, and some doughy sweet malts. Oddly like a mix between a strong pils and IPA. Pours golden orange with a nice frothy head and sticky lace. Doughy, bready, grassy, with big floral and citrus hops in the finish a good deal of grapefruit. Lingering citrus notes in the finish. Nice sharp hoppy IPA. This one drinks nicely.

( 22oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours clear yellow with oily bubbles on top. Nose of bright citrus hops, taste of grapefruit oils. This beer is pretty straightforward bitter and finishes that way too.

Bottle: hazy orange, nice head and lacing. The nose is fredh and piney, the amarillos are great with the orange notes. Malty delicious flavor with a ton of hop notes. Clean and fresh with a very nice pnw flair. Yum.

22 oz. bottle from kenb. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma had quite a bit of orange and grapefruit, crisp resiny hops and mild caramel malts. The flavor is a nice blend of caramel dipped biscuity malts and the nice grapefruit citrus hops. Other flavors include resiny hops with a hint of herbal spiciness. Medium bodied with a dry bitterness to the finish. This is an enjoyable IPA especially since it is organic which I usually have more issues with.
