fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2015
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, listed at 11.1% ABV
Hazy amber color with Cooper hue, compact head. The hops are fruity bit also a bit candyish, not too aromatic; the body is lean but the beer is somehow chewy; moderate sweetness; loads of piney hops; in the final apparently the malt sticks more than the hop. Nice alcohol warmth, and tickling hop resins.
Good malty beer. Old style IIPA.

brokensail (13278) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 20, 2013
Hazed amber/copper pour with a white head. Sweet caramel, sugar, pineapple, and peach aromas. Grapefruit, pine, flowers, and some brown sugar. Maybe a bit of alcohol. The flavor is a touch boozy, but excellent fruit and hop character. Brown sugar, caramel, pineapple, peach, and nice grapefruit. Mild bitterness, pine, and floral hops.

Good to be #10. Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe at 4:20 PM. Board note: "The dankest, hoppiest beer ever brewed at Lagunitas. My rate: Pours translucent orange gold with a foamy white head. Huge citrus/floral aroma. Very near full bodied. It’s almost sludgy with hop. Fruit hop. Citrus hop. Maybe some resin. There’s a little sweetness, and I think I detect caramel under all the hop. Bitter like resin, but not the NW version of harshness. Earthy, swampy, fruity, bitter. Extremely hoppy. Very tasty.

Drake (10518) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2012
Served on draft at Beer Run, on 4/20 of course. And the cost? 4.20 of course. And when did they tap it? 4:20 of course. I damn near missed but but made it in time for a friend to share some with me. Thanks! Pours a clear amber color. Aroma of tropical notes, herbal hops and faint malts. The taste is tropical hops and slightly dank herbal hops. Medium bodied. Good IPA, but not as dank as the hype suggested.
