Panzuriel (1308) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Sisters pours a hazy apple juice light amber with no real lace to speak of. Light Hop nose with just a hint of sweet and salavatingly enticing astringentness. Body is fizzy on the tongue. Taste is Very dry with just a hint of bitters and sweetness on the finish. Mostly all aftertaste. Somehow I would have liked just a bit more.

12oz bottle pours a hazy gold with an off white head. More malt than anything. I might have gotten this to late.

jgb9348 (4735) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Crisp, very hazy bronze coloured body with a decent two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of fresh grassy and bready hops with a good yeast and malt nose, some alcohol and a touch of citrus and sugars at the finish. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and dry note up front with a good hop flavour but no malt backbone to speak of at all, just a PNW hop kick at first but nothing supporting it and no depth at all. Aftertaste shows a subdued grass note, hints of the hops but little else - no complexity and no depth here, which is too bad. Overall, a good smelling and nice tasting beer initially, but this fades fast and only a shell of a beer is left. Decent to try, but there are much better examples of the style to try than this one. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia on 27-July-2014 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 18-August-2014.

MadRobin (1939) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap at Cedars in Penn Quarter in Washington, DC. Hazy amber with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of malt, light fruit, caramel, floral hops and light citrus. Taste of caramel, intense floral hops, light fruit and mild citrus. Medium body and medium/low carbonization. I found this to be an odd IPA. It was very bitter, but without either the citrus/pine intensity nor a tropical fruit hoppiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a big fan of this IPA. The bready malts and the metallic fruits were confusingly mingled. Tried this at the DC beerfest with Jess, Mark, and Matt in 2014.

Some citrus and some sweet malt but comes together with a tinge of acridness that puts me off. On tap at DC Summerfest.

Dal9000 (184) - Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2014
A mild taste with a mild IPA flavor. Builds in the middle with a slight pine. Finishes with a lingering light hoppy taste when you inhale. Perfect when you want more than. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Kind of strange, but I can't put my finger on it. Not like other IPA's that I like, but overall, just ok... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ home, thanks to jcnielsen. Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a cream colored head. Tropical fruity, a bit woody, a bit papery aroma. A little twangy. Kind of dusty / cardboard-y flavor. Plenty of citrus. Moderate to high sweetness. High bitterness. Not in the best shape but I’m still not a huge fan.
