"i wasnít too impressed with this one at all in the midst of a good IPA line-up. the thick head and lacing stayed put, so the look was intruiging, but it was pretty one dimensional, like a decent homebrew, had a weakish hop aroma (especially comparatively) and was slightly bitter."

glennmastrange (2285) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Cask. Moderate roasted grain and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy grapefruit for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with dried fruit in the background. Head is average size, frothy/creamy, white with excellent crusty lacing and is fully lasting. Color is clear amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly acidic with a lengthy heavy bitterness. Palate is medium, oily with a soft carbonation and has a very dry finish. The hand drawn aspect of this IPA really did put it over the top.

AirForceHops (3295) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Draft @ Toroando, SF. Was it fair that I sampled a Fresh Squeezed right before this? No, it was not. This beer has a weak herbal hop note and lots of caramel/ sweet malt. Reminds me of a English IPA or bitter. The malt is the main character and really not much in the way of bitterness or real hop flavors. Overly sweet, tastes like an old American Pale ale that has sat around to long. I will not remember this.

Homer321 (1961) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Draft at Flavor. Draft at some place that ran out of malt liquor drafts. Nose is very floral with a light lemon citrus character. Taste is immediately bitter with a pithy character. Unpleasantly sharp. Too much bad bitterness

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2014
On tap in Santa Rosa. Slightly hazy golden with a foamy, off white head. Aroma is very floral and soapy. Harshly bitter flavor, again that is very soapy. Some slight citrus. Green hops. Eh. I really didnít like this one.

Theydon_Bois (9054) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Keg at Flavor, Santa Rosa, 28/04/14. Hazed orange amber with a god sized off white head that thins then retains. Nose is toasted malt, bitter orange, citric peel, grassy, light grapefruit. Taste comprises pink grapefruit, orange pith, straw, toasty malts, citric peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close laced with hop bitterness. Decent enough IPA - easy drinking and a good balance, no world beater though.

S- Pine, grass, herbal T- Slightly herbal, biscuity with pine notes that lead into a huge wave of bitter piney hops. M- Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
