pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle from Chip’s in Kill Devil Hills. Pours out a moderate golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of light citrus hops, moderate sweet malty notes. Taste is much the same, some citrus, light grass, some doughy malts. Average. Not sure about the name either, sort of reminds me of how someone in the 1800’s would refer to women on the same monthly cycle.

dmac (3896) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle shared by pineypower at Scott’s poolside Saturday. Poured a golden/orange body with an average foamy off whtie head. Aroma of celery, grains, dust and honey. Medium body, average carbonation, full mouthfeel....actually they hit this on the head pretty much. Flavor of grains, cereal, bitter hops and citrus rind. Yet another average IPA in a world of bitter beers.

brokensail (10607) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 8, 2011
A: The pour is a lightly hazed golden-amber color color with a tall off-white head. S: Sort of a bland aroma. There is some grass, a light floral note, and minimal citrus peel notes. There is a fair amount of sweet malt and bread to it, and just a very light grapefruit. Strangely, a touch of celery. T: Light pine is there first with the strange celery flavor following. A bit of citrus peel along with sweet malt and bread. A little bit of additional sweetness in the form of toffee. There is just a mild bitterness. M: Medium in body body and carbonation. O: Just a mediocre IPA. Not very good hop character to it.

r464 (1883) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2011
A balanced, though still bitter and hoppy, IPA. Not strongly floral in nature. A bit sweet with a bold rather than crisp finish.

12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Charlotte Park Town Village, opened 4/6/11. Pours a clear golden color with a medioum sized creamy offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of bitter hops with some floral notes. The taste is leafy, bitter hops, some resiny notes and a citrus finish, along with some caramel malts. Medium bodied. Nice beer.
