daknole (9224) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2008
On tap at Brother Tuckers. Nice cloudy orange pour with a good sized whitish head. Aroma of citrus, malt and some bread too. Flavor is remarkably balanced and delicious. This is a helluva an IPA!

hopscotch (9215) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2002
This beer rocks. The aroma is very hoppy with bursts of pine and spruce. Notes of cinnamon, allspice and clove. This hazy mohogany ale has a large, frothy, khaki head that is mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. Yum! Very malty and smooth, yet bitter up front. Beautifully unbalanced. The hops win out big time on the backside. Bursts of coriander and brown sugar. Hints of pine. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Long, bitter and dry finish. A must have for all hopheads. A great IPA!

Theydon_Bois (9092) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Thanksgiving day lunchtime warm up, bottle split at Christine and Daves which I acquired from Wegmans, Downington, 28/11/13. Lightly hazed golden with a moderate off white head. Nose is caramel malt forward, bitter hop notes, orange rind, grapefruit, grassy, mandarin. Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, caramel malt, orange pith, pine resin, light chlorine trace but not too detrimental. Medium bodied, fine carbonation building to a decent level of hop bitterness in a grassy dry finish. Solid IPA - best of the day and putting all the local east coast ones to shame.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Poured a dark mahagony color with a huge (4 finger) off white head. Lots of medium sized particles. Pinny and citris aromas. Piney, hoppy taste. Very good IPA.

Sammy (8719) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2008
A very good IPA, and a hard one to find Northeast these days. Drying full bittreness, smooth, orange citrus. Aroma of c-hop but also a tad musty in there. Better as airs out. Dry aftertaste, must be high IBU.Lace webbing remains.
