Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Captain Easy’s Gourmet.
Aroma: The nose is light with bits of citrus, light malt sweetness, and a slightly off vegetal note.
Appearance: It pours a hazy amber-orange color with a large, pillowy, off-white head. Excellent head retention.
Taste: The bitterness is forward and lasting. The bitterness is the most prominent feature and lacking malt balance. There is a bit of orange, pine resin, and a touch of caramel malt.
Palate: Medium bodied with lots of softer carbonation leading to a long, bitter finish.
Overall: It comes across as a bit harsh and one dimensional. Mind you it isn’t terrible, it’s just not outstanding in a rather crowded field. Not worth going out of your way for.

Clear orange color with a thin but sticky head. The aroma is primarily earthy and almost musty with a mild touch of lemon, which gives an overall impression of lemongrass. The citrus fruitiness comes out a bit more in the flavor, but the earthiness also remains, creating a nice hop flavor complexity. It feels light on the tongue but also a bit oily, letting those flavors linger for more than a few fleeting seconds. Overall, I would consider this one to be among the better local IPA’s.

Aurelius (4031) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Piney, slightly candied pineapple APA aroma. Good label, hazy, ruddy gold. Caramelized, piney APA. Doesn’t cling, but has a good citrus pith finish. Pretty solid.
