Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Usual ropey hop aroma abounds here, but it is a medium brown color. The beer has a fairly bitter flavor overall, while remaining malt based underneath it all. A lighter body than the look would indicate...a festbier IPA? In any case I enjoyed it.

Very earthy hops. Darker in color than a typical IPA. Good beer for autumn, but not a great IPA.

Liked this brew not that great of an IPA but more of an hoppy Oktoberfest which is what I believe they were going for

Caramel, fruit, and pine hops in the aroma. Flavor is bready and bitter, with spice and pine hops in the finish. I’m not usually a fan of stuff from Ipswich, but this is good.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 14, 2012
12oz Bottle. Minty, herbal, old world dill hop aroma. Flavors are surprisingly toasty, with almost brown ale-like malt complexity. The hops are blowing me away. It feels like an English-style IPA with American hops, if that makes any sense. Nicely dry and very clean, but kind of an odd mash up of flavors, the hint of roastier malts against a gritty, dry, and slightly medicinal hop palate. In some ways, there’s something really nice and comforting about this, on the other hand it’s kind of confusing and clashing. I wish I could figure out which was which.

AirForceHops (3432) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle purchased @ BrewTopia. Nice deep ruby color with thin white head that did give spider web lace. Nose is plenty of fresh, wet hops. The taste is sweet malt and light pine hops with grapefruit and floral hop notes. Earthy and herbal as well. Mild, lingering bitterness long after the sip. Medium in body. The hop profile is borderline Double IPA. Hop Heads should really enjoy for a “standard” IPA classification.

12oz bottle. Light amber pour with a white head. Real nice earthy malt taste with a nice hop balance. Not bad.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2011
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, leaves, Earth, nuts, roasting, and a hint of hops. Poured amber/copper in color with a large, creamy, foamy, dense, tan head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny and small-sized particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, slight pine, Earth, nuts, and leaves. Medium body. Oily, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hop, pine, Earth finish is dry. 6.9%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

hopscotch (9385) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle… Clear copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Exceptional retention. The nose is an intermingling of toasted biscuit, caramel and black tea. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor furnishes toastiness and black tea bitterness with a twist of lemon peel. Bitter, black tea finish. Bottle courtesy of growler. Thanks, Scott!

MaBeer1972 (1361) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2011
A hazy light brown brew. Good carbonation. Light roasty-hop aromas. Flavor is good and hoppy. Light to medium body. Some roastiness. Slightly sticky finish. An OK brew, but perhaps a little muddled.
