daknole (10281) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Thanks acknud...this beer is smooth and really damn good. Pours a golden color wtih a thin but foamy white head. Aroma is hoppy but also ciderish. Flavor is malty, almost like a boddingtons with a great hop bite. A little more hops and this would be world class!!!

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2008
It’s a warm golden beer with a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma has fruity notes of papaya, mango, tangerine, resin and a touch of caramel. The flavour has a light sweetness and the same nice notes as the flavour, but the citrus is more dominant, especially grapefruit. The bitterness is light. Thank you Tom/After4ever for this charming beer.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Bottle… Clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Earthy, evergreen and tree bark nose; smells a bit like a PNW forest floor, but better? Pale malt sweetness in step with perfect bitterness and a rumor of acidity provide excellent balance. Full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, lightly bitter finish.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2007
22oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear golden color with an averaged sized head. Aromas of pine, citrus, and floral. Tastes of oranges, caramel, and grapefruit. The aroma is all about hops with the tastes being somewhat balanced. Thinner body. Alcohol content well hidden.

Sammy (9553) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2008
This bomber is for sharing and was aged about a year in my cellar. A very hoppy beer, hoppy but balanced aroma, great head with lace. This doubles up to soften the mouthfeel and the hop lead bitterness and mintiness stays on the palate in the finish.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2007
This brew is a clear golden color with tiny rising bubbles and a thick and fluffy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Lots of grapefruit in the aroma, along with some hops and caramel malt. Medium-bodied with a strong citrus character, mostly grapefruit. Touches of piney hops and malt as well. The finish is lemony hops with a touch of sweetness. An interesting beer that tastes like a cross between an IPA and an Imperial Pilsener. I would try this again.

shrubber85 (9019) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Bottle. Orange, grapefruit and grassy hops aroma. Medium yellow amber color with small head. Sweet orange malt flavor up front with a metallic pine hops finish. A good beer - I guess though for a beer honoring the great Frank Zappa, I would have expected something more obscure and unexpected. Still, a nice memorial.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2007 22 oz bomber. Very pale golden beer. Crystal clear with a sticky white head. The aroma is fruity and fresh with loads of tangerine and grapefruit with a soft resinous piny character. A bit of lean crisp maltiness but the hops are the most expressive component of this brew. Moderate bitterness but loads of fresh grapefruit and tangerine hop flavour. Soft pithy bitterness. Nice straight-forward west coast IPA.

3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Appearance is honey gold and clear, with a small white or off-white head. Nose is heavy on the dry pine nut hops (seriously, what hops are used? It’s pointless to make an IPA without listing the hops), some dry peach rind shows up as well, especially strong in the nose. Overall it lacks the fruitiness and “dankness” I expect in good IPA, instead it’s almost completely made up of pine nuts and dry, aged pine wood. Ok to good overall, but for IPA it lacks a lot.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2007
My Bottom Line:
This perfumy Double IPA allies biscuity maltiness to talkative sandy and wooden hops redolent of the Simcoe variety, and carries it into a finish as long and grassy as tall weeds. THis is nothing less than a smashing bottle of West Coast goodness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam stays atop the clear blond.
-Citrus fruit also bloom from the ebullient hop character.
-The body is rather lean and geared towards drinkability.
-Alcohol never hinders the high quaffability factor.
