Cybercat's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Cybercat (3196) - Georgia, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Strong aroma is more fruity than hoppy, mainly sour orange with a subtle grapefruit note, and a hoppy tone that is more woody then evergreen. It pours a dark, bubbly, reddish amber bordering on mahogany with a thick, fluffy, palest golden-tan head. Flavor is fairly hoppy, though not as much as many other IPAs I have tried. It has firm fruity notes, sour orange and a little apple and grapefruit, as well as a bit of malt. Hop component is largely woody and not at all bitter - it is fairly sweet as far as IPAs go. Firm texture has a good amount of fizz. Not great, but still enjoyable.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle: Poured a dirty cloudy amber color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dusty dank hops with light fruity notes and some biscuit malt notes. Taste is dominated by dank musty hoppy notes with light fruity notes and some biscuit malt. Body is full with good carbonation. Why do retailer keep overpriced IPA which donít move with no freaking bottling date.

Burgers (242) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Hazy, reddish, good head, full of sediment. Nose mainly of yeast and grains. Taste medium bitter. Not their best.

osu97gp (646) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange brown with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of bread, caramel and earthy hops. Flavor of caramel malt, earthy hops and spices. Pretty good.

JohnRMurdoch (3170) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2014
330ml bottle from BrewDog OnLine. Reddish orange brown, good head. Resin grain malt hop aroma. Dry biscuit grain flavour. Bitter grain biscuit aftertaste. Not had this hop before. Not my favourite.

TheBear11D (213) - Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2014
The Bravo pours a cloudy rusty bronze with a fair amount of floating sediment and features a decent ivory head that lasts a fair while. The aroma is resin, bread, caramel and spruce. The flavor is spruce, bread and caramel. Overall this is a decent beer.

solidfunk (3586) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2014
Nice citrus peel like variety of hops. First in series I just got on sale at Schneiderís. Cloudy brown orange with decent head and lacing. Bitter finish. Good barley crispness, very grainy feel. Nice.

angel77 (768) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 3, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de 2d2dspuma. Tomada en mayo de 2013. Sabor a fruta, ligeramente dulce, agradable y aroma floral destacado. Amargo final apreciable y que perdura durante un buen rato. Cuerpo medio con 6.8 vol. Muy buena, dentro de la serie de las mejores, despuťs de tantas y tan buenas ya sobra decir que es una cerveza para repetir sin duda.

allmyvinyl (2795) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 27, 2014
330ml bottle from Ninaís. Pours a hazy copper gold, thick off-white head. High carbonation keeps it there. Aromas of resin, pine and pollen. Taste has a decent bitterness, light caramel coming through. Bitter finish, maybe a tad cloying.

Tmoney99 (10405) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Tap sample.Poured clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate smooth bittersweet flavor with a moderate bitterswwet finish of medium duration. This a good brew.

Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. No idea which Mikkeller Bravo this is... On the menu at the taproom, itís labeled 6.8%, but on the Ei8ht Ball website, itís listed as 6.9%. They probably donít know either. Will just put my rate on the one with more entries. The two beers are so similar they may as well be merged anyway. Whichever one it is, itís probably going to be really old, too.... Here we go.... Mildly hazy orange amber color. Little off-white head. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter, lightly soft carbonation. Lightly slick. Caramel malty, some light mustiness, thought not as malty and oversweet as I expected. Some lightly bruised grapefruit citrus, earthy hop flavors, lightly spicy. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Not that bad, actually. Definitely not worth the price, though.
