Growler courtesy of Paul at a tasting at his place. Pours a clear amber with brown hues and a thin to medium sized white head. Oxidization and age apparent on the nose, fruit and plums. Medium bodied, sweet and old. Malt, touch of hops, toast, malt. Moves into an oxidized bitterness with some remnants of hops.

Pours a light amber with a smallish head. Oddly, a slight hint of sweetness to the smell. Some sweetness to the brew as well, which serves as a complement to the hopiness.

GMCC2181 (1552) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 28, 2012
Bomber from StFun... Poured a murkey red color, with a nice head. Smelled bready/malty and lighlty hopped. Taste was a sweet bready maltiness, followed by a light bittering from the hops. Kind of an east coast DIPA... Medium body, it wasnt sticky or dry.... some where in between. Alcohol was well hidden. Overall sub-par DIPA... meh. Thanks Josh!

Nephilium (1472) - Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Strong hop aroma, with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Pours a cloudy orange with a tight white head. Strong hop presence in the flavor, with some caramel malts to support it. Long bitter finish, that lingers on the palate. The alcohol content is very well hidden, this is a solid IIPA.

deyholla (7713) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle thanks Josh! Pours a caramel amber with an off-white head that lasts throughout the bee and laces nicely. Aroma has some light pine hop with a bit of resin and caramel and sweet grains underlying. Flavor begins sweet with caramel and cereal that is joined by a resinous pine hop.

Draft. Rich O’s. Golden orange color, thin white head. Malt, pine, spice, floral aroma, but surprisingly subtle. Sweet, fruity, bitter and some maltiness in the finish.

Tap at Scottys Jan 17, 2012. Clear golden pour with nice head and thick lacing. Aroma was citrus and spice. Taste was similar to aroma but balanced nicely with malt. Very tasty DIPA that finishes smooth and mild bitter.
