I tell you what, I almost didn’t purchase this because it was rated an 88 on here. Good thing I bought it! I knew from the moment I opened it and my nose was greeted by grapefruit and citrus I’d enjoy it. It’s a great IPA. Pours a honey gold color, a finger of white tiny bubbly head. As I drink it, it has great lacing. The nose is lots of grapefruit, lemon, orange, some sweet bready malts, and pine needle. It’s well balanced, not a whole lot of bitterness on the toungue, and the sweetness of the malts really comes through here. The description says full-bodied, but I’d say it’s medium bodied. High drinkability. A well crafted IPA. As far as a standard IPA goes, this makes my top 10 for sure.

Missus brought this back from Safeway and I was skeptical at first. Surprisingly light beer with sweet aroma & nice florals and long clean finish. Malt is easy on the palate. Just finished one and I’ll have another. Good session beer?

SlackerMads (2103) - DENMARK - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle. Hazy copper with a small white head. Nose has tropical fruits; apricot, peach, passion fruit. Flavour Falls Flat, the hops are kept behind notes of cardboard, dried green plants, earth, wood. Medium body, some sweetness, fine carbonation, bitter astringent finish. Four months old and this doesn’t seem to be in good condition, but it is a long journey from Hawaii to Denmark. Not so bad it makes me give up drinking, everyone should be fucking wasted all the time. DRINK! DRINK!

Bottle. Aroma pf piney hops, low level as the bottle is not super fresh. In taste medium sweet, piney with medium bitterness. Decent ipa.

Obfuscate (280) - Minneapolis, - JUL 28, 2015
Tried this with my pizza and really like so picked up a 6’er. Very clean IPA, citrus,slightly bitter but not like many IPA’s today. This is almost session able. Great summer or warm weather IPA.

(Bottle). One of my picks for the St. Ceasaro party. Smooth and mellow but a tasty IPA that works well in summer. Easily pairs with food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heavenly golden appearance... not much head to speak of. Smell of floral notes and bread. Taste is strong of bread w/ some honey. It’s OK.
