JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Draft at Isaac Newtons - no notes taken, but I remember fairly well. Orange color (cloudy) with a very sweet piney-grapefruit aroma. Flavor was a bit too sweet and unbalanced. Not bad, but could have been much better for the style.

dancatts (91) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2007
This IPA had some serious bite to it. Bitterness is almost overwhelming when drinking. Had a heavy hop aroma with a golden color that tasted strong, but not to heavy.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Draft pint at KClingers. Reddish amber with a firm pillowy head. Oily hop aroma. Full bodied drinker with lots to it -- thick and woodsy, with a heavy spicy twist and a big earthy finish. Tangy and metallic at the end. Good IPA with some gusto. (#3216, 11/24/2007)

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café: Deep amber, somewhat fiery, moderate foamy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet malty nose, kind of candyish, hop presense is there but takes a back seat to the malts.   Big malt flavors up front, somewhat sweet, hop presense that isn’t over bearing.   Good, up to par with respect to malts, but could stand to be a bit more hoppy.   Mod body and mouthfeel. Reminds me of an agedand toned down Doggie Claws because of the malts.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Draught (End of Keg): Aroma of citrus, hops, tropical fruit, and floral hops. Poured a turbid, orange, color with a small white head that diminished. Lots of huge hop particles. Opaque. Excellent lacing. Flavor of floral hops, citrus, and grapefruit. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Hoppy grapefruit finish.

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2012 Draft at DRE. Turbid deep dull gold pour with off-white head. Hop, spicy fruit, and bready malt aroma, with the bready malt dominating the taste, and a solid but not overpowering hop presence. Not a hop bomb, but rather a somewhat citric, hopped up blonde ale with some bready and spicy finsihing notes. This one needs to define its criteria, and then master those criteria. Re-rate: Has this at Capone’s, and the nose was much hoppier, with more resiny and peppery notes, the flavor was intense hops, peppery, fruit, and caramel malt, and the complexity was wonderful. I believe this recipe must have changed since my initial rate in 2007.
