Draft at Arnold’s. Very hazy gold/pink color, mostly fruity nose--hops are subdued, thin somewhat watery body, thin fruity bittersweet flavor. Disappointing. Not getting what other raters see in this--maybe this was old or mishandled. Tasted on July 18, 2014.

Pours a hazy dark golden color. Big fluffy white head, with lots of lacing left on the glass. Aroma of citrus hops, yeast dough, and alcohol. Taste translates, with a boozy, somewhat dry finish. Alcohol was noticeable. OK beer, nothing I would seek out again.

Block (1605) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2014
This was a solid IPA. Served in a snifter. High alcohol which is masked well. Covered by sweet malts, hoppy finish. Much better than PsycHOPathy.

JStax (3346) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Draft pour during Ohio Brew Week. Pours a clear copper with a white head of foam. The aroma has big sweet citrus. Pretty sweet taste. Big body and medium carbonation.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy medium amber with a bubbly rim head, lots of lace specks. Taste is malt that is shoved aside early by strong citrus hops. The bitter remains through a lingering finish, never giving way to the malt. Good for hop lovers - others watch out.

One of my all time favorite DIPAs mouthfeel is full and slightly sticky but it fits the style perfectly. Overflowing with fresh juicy fruit in both aroma and taste with tantalizing citrus on the back end. The finish is of bitter pine. Pours a beautiful dark gold with a bright white head. Get this if you can find it!!

Aroma is tropical fruit and hoppy goodness. Deep golden with a solid white head. Taste is tropical fruit and citrus upfront with some sweet caramel and bready malt mid palate. The follow through is lingering citrus and dank piney hop bitterness. Palate is silky oily smooth. Overall I would put this up against any double IPA on the planet. Obviously a local homer on this one, but this deserves any and all praise that it gets. Hope they can this one as it is easily the best they make in my opinion.

JaBier (5094) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2014
On tap at Jackie O’s Public House on 4/22/14. Clear amber in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of orange, pine, grass, malt, grapefruit and apricot. Sweet malt flavor with pine and citrus before a boozy finish.

Chudwick (2278) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAR 12, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2014 Rerate served in a goblet. less cat urine, hoppy. Delicious.
Taster at 8ball - nose is cat urine. Sip is less offensive: pine. Bitter. Semblance of a malty back bone. Hoppy.

Clear yellow gold with thin white head. Aroma is exploding citrus. Wonderful lemoney taste without the overwhelming bitterness. Like this beer.
