ClubGonzo (5416) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew and Meilby. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange body with a small white head. Nose is syrup, harsh fat, hints of malty extract-like notes and raisins. Taste is nutty syrupy tones with hints of grass and...not much else, apparently. Medium body, soft carbonation. This might have suffered from trans-Atlantic transport, but I think it’s just...weird.

Golden orange pour with some caramel, light grassy hops and malt. Flavors are the same, basic, but not bad, more malt than hops for an IPA. Ok overall, wouldn’t seek out or go out of m y way to try.

Bomber, thanks to my brother. The body is a medium copper hue with a light khaki head. The nose has some earthy sweat and a bit of pine. Then there is also some grapefruit. The taste is mineral and herbal with grapefruit on the back end. There is a strange slight tartness with some bread crust. This one is definitely off.

jkwood04 (5280) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 17, 2013
12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral, lightly citrusy, and lightly fruity hops, plus a little pale and light caramel malts. Flavor the same, but somehow light and tin-like for a beer with such a high alcohol content. Average texture. Not bad but not great.

bottle thanks to mora2000. poured a deep amber with no head. nose is aged hops, caramel, oranges, and citrus. decent on the palate, thick caramel, oranges, and faint hops.

mkel07 (5146) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2012
Draught at The Pub Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. I had never heard of this brewery before and this beer is one of those rare gems that you come across, no expectations, just drink and see. There was a bold fruity hop aroma bursting out of the glass. The flavour was great and right up there with the best IPA’s tha I have had. The flavour was well balanced and not overpowering in the hop department.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2010
12 oz bottle shared by vtafro for after Maxs party. Pours a hazy deep amber with a dull body and fading off beige head. Aroma is medium toffee and biscuit malts, light burnt hints, old stale cheesy hops, mineral and spice with herbs and tea. Flavor is more dull oxidized malts and hops, cheesy, papery, earth, leather, spice, grassy hops, pepper, paper stale malts, bitter and astringent in the end. Past its prime and messy. Blech.

Aurelius (5068) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Somewhat abrasive hop aroma - litter box, grapefruit, pineapple. Tatoo art logo, 12 oz can. Clear, or almost clear, citrine brew with an absolutely huge, ivory head in a snifter. Pretty smooth, big IAIPA flavor - grapefruit pith, light diacetyl, fairly sweet, modest pine/resin. Man, this would make great Mojo - add a little oregano and lime. Very respectable, a big beer. Thanks to PorterPounder for digging this out of World Market.

TimE (5034) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2015
Light golden color. Sharp grassy nose with some citrus notes, a bit harsh. The mouth is light for the abv but very simplistic. Alcohol burn at the end. Very simplistic.
