bhensonb (10808) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Can from Brewforia. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is rather treacle/caramel. Med body. Flavor is treacle with some sort of hop, but this is really quite malty. Now it seems a bit pineapple. Thereís a bitterness. Quite different.

Nephilium (1326) - Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Caramel aroma with some piney hop notes, pours a hazy orange-amber with a full white head. Nice assertive hop bitterness, which the malts fail to balance out. Moderate body, with a long lingering bitter finish. If you like your IPAís balanced, stay away from this one.

ajnepple (1999) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2014
16 oz can from Conifer Village Liquor into an NBB globe glass. Orange and light hazy appearance with a sticky, lingering beige head and active carbonation. Aroma of orange peel, resinous hops, pine, grass, herbs and light floral notes. Similar flavor, hoppy, resinous and quite bitter with lightly sweet caramel malts backing things up. Medium body, creamy and softly carbonated with a lingering finish, somewhat dry. Not too clean and kind of hard to drink. More enjoyable cold and straight from the can.

DrSilverworm (6033) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2014
16oz can, from Perfect Pour. Hazy amber color. Thin off-white head. Dots and bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Kind of crisp, slightly rough lighter carbonation, with a very dry finish. Caramel malt up front, but not caramel malty sweet... Big bitterness actually, with a too-dry finish. Some earthy hop, but not much pleasant hop aromatic beyond that. All friends that tried said it was very dry. OK IPA at best. Hint of metallic. Whenever I have a mediocre IPA I wonder how fresh it is. No date on this can. Not bad.. Just kind of overly aggressive, assertive, bitter and dry. I havenít tried the 4% version, but I kind of imagine that it was decent and balanced, and these guys just went way extreme with this 7% version. I wonder how accurate that is.

patrick767 (3536) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2014
tap at the brewpub - Pours up a dense, white, one finger long lasting head with ample lacing. It has a citrus hop aroma that comes out more and more as it warms. Moderate to strong hops bitterness with a subdued malt backbone gives this brew a fairly tasty flavor. Carbonation is light. It has the expected long, bitter finish typical of the style. Itís good though nothing super special.

Ernest (6162) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy/creamy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, resin), with notes of plastic, wax, butter, fabric softener sheets, and vegetables. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Surprisingly terrible, based on the two Desert Select brews Iíve tried (one of which is 4+ for me, have had multiple bottles). Off notes galore in the nose (chemical-like), and sour and dirty in the mouth. Made at different facilities or by different people within the brewery? Must be. Or like Boulevard, they just donít treat the year-round beers with the same care and effort that they do their seasonal/special stuff. Complete drain pour.

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Can. Unfiltered amber with a foamy, lasting off-white head. Dusty, yeasty orange sherbert Cascade-like hop aroma with cara red maraschino cherry / sweet pastry batter malt. Medium body, sweet, chewy and syrupy with a simple, goopy caramel malt base and sourish vegetable leaf hops. Medium acidity and a lingering yeast powder / vitamin residue left on the tongue. The aroma is almost pleasant but it could use some filtration and a cleaner strain.
