3fourths (7801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 22oz bottle. Orange hazed appearance, sticky off-white head, nice look overall, thick building head, long-lasting, abundant lacing. Nose is dusty and minerally yeast with some pistachio and mint green hop notes in the nose. Frothy up front, more wet and heavy on the back. Solid malt base, but has some soggy grains and bread covered by the presence of slightly moldy sourdough and old, browned bananas. Not as bad as I expected.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Seemed like a double IPA to me. Pours with a largish, off-white head and a chill hazed orange body that leaves good lacing. Aroma of pink grapefruit with sugar and a cherry on top. Some salt and malt as well. Taste is grapefruit and some salt and bubblegum in thee finish. Syrupy mouthfeel. Quite good.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin), with a light note of alcohol, hints of sage and ash. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. An American-styled hop bomb with nothing remotely Belgian about it to my senses, but an ok quaffing APA/IPA if you like the green/American hop aroma. Not my thing at all, but hop lovers will probably dig it.

22. Thanks, Skoi! Crystal clear golden brown body, light white head. Somewhat hoppy and candi-ish nose. Medium body, some metal and darkly sugary notes. Uninspired.
