On tap at Shaw’s Tavern DC. Pours a hazy orange with some fizzy white head. Nose is soap, grapefruit, pine, orange, some kefir lime. Flavor is bracing with bitterness, blood orange, kumquat, pine, malt, grass, nettles. Full bitter finish. Could be a little more nuanced.

Shag (2585) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2013
The appearance is a golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus and herbal notes. The flavor is slightly sour with some bitter notes. There are mostly lemons present in the flavor. Overall a little one dimensional but not bad, just not great.

Malty aroma. Strong back palate bitterness that lasts through finish. Herbal undertones.

kathouse (934) - Nevada, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Cloudy orange with a thin head. Orange, citrus, and caramel nose leads into a heavy dose of caramel, bread, and toasted malts. Finish is all malt with very little hop character.

Easily one of the strangest IPA’s I’ve ever encountered. Pours a huge foamy head and is golden in color with a lot of lacing. The aroma is weak and fairly uninteresting. The taste is pretty bizarre. It has a Belgium feel with some hops sprinkled in at the finsh. It leaves a strong amount of bitterness on the tongue. Not smooth and pretty poorly balanced. Ehh

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Growler fill - thanks Pop! Pours a slightly unclear amber/orange with bubbly off white head. Smell is citrus, earthy, caramel malts. Taste is malt forward, some citrus, grass.

I thought this was an amber on first sip. Pours amber with a white head. An English IPA with a malty start and a slightly peppery finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gonzosauce (157) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Hazy light gold. Hay and earth backing up resin-forward hops. Smells balanced. Tastes balanced too, with the resin taking the strongest presence an hanging around while it sweetens a bit into the palate. Missing the crispness, and that hurts the palate - it gets real one-dimensional real quick. It’s the better side of a beer, relying on the simplicity of efficient hops and more than satisfactory balance.

On cask and delicious. Tempting aroma and cloudy yellow pour with a smooth taste and growing mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
