GJF (1245) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Solid northwest IPA. Pours a beautiful copper with a rocky white head. Not much aroma. Flavor starts out mild but there’s lots of chewy hops in the finish. Fairly standard for the style but well done.

ABUSEDGOAT (2361) - California, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Amber colored, moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is grapefruit, some overripe fruit, pine, citrus. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness. Despite having some of my favorite hops, I only thought this one decent.

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2008
Objectively speaking: Fruity, sweet, but growingly dry IPA that is less clean than expected.
I like: High drinkability. Easy-going hop flavours that you’ve met in countless other examples. Earthy more than caramelly, thus finishing rather dry.
I dislike: Rather simple juicy malts, more pale than crystal. Fairly yeasty for an IPA.

Sleeper (91) - Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Pours with thick head. Smells hoppy. Tastes of grapefruit and hops. Very drinkable. I got this as a recommendation @ 99 Bottles in Federal Way. I havenít had a bad Lazy Boy yet!

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Multifarious hoppiness blooms into piney, orangey, and resinous petals across the juicy, sweet fruitiness of this approachable and highly drinkable India Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the hazy orange red.
-The fruity sweetness is not exactly caramelized.
-The forthcoming hop bitterness is earthy and resinous.
-Flavors do not coalesce completely in this bottle, yet they are quite amenable.

Bottle.

LinusStick (2842) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2008
A great IPA. Heard of this through Draft Magazine (it IS good for something after all!) and glad I did. Aroma was nice...caramel malt and strong earthy hops. Pour was very dark for an IPA. Nice suprise. A dark clear gold (light brown) with a one finger off white head. Taste was very hoppy with a strong caramel backbone. After the swallow the hops dry the mouth and throat. Full bitter aftertaste and good carbonation.

Ratman197 (9700) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bomber poured a clear dark copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of earthiness, carmel, light pine and hints of orange and mangoe. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of earthiness, carmel, orange peel and light pine with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2008 A copper color with an off white head. The aroma contains citrus such as lemons and oranges but also has a heavy malt presence. The flavor is rather malty for an IPA with a hint of pine and some lemons as well. Overall not amazing but an ok IPA.

Snuck back in a suitcase with other Washington goodies. When given the choice to have Russian River Supplication or this beer tonight, my wife chose the Lazy Boy. Lazy Boy it be. A very nice IPA with hops and pine and yadda yadda. Still, why would she choose this over a RR? Who knows. I just open what she asks for and hope to sneak the RR to myself later.
