On tap at New Belgium Pub at DEN. Northwest hops seem somewhat muted v expectations. Perfectly clear brushed gold with a white head that did not linger. Grapefruit and flora come thru more on palate than aroma. Nice beer. Bitterness is a little rough with malt not balancing this out.

Poured a clear amber color with foamy white head. Some lacing and carbonation bubbles. Smells and taste has hints of grapefruit.

Pours a very clear golden color with a huge foamy white head...very nice lacing and retention. Aroma is floral and citrusy...spicy grapefruit and a bit of mango. Flavor follows suit...very freshand slightly sweet citrusy taste with notable grapefruit and spice. Mouthfeel is silky and a bit oily and the finish is dry with spicy grapefruit lingering. I dig it.

355ml bottle poured a nice golden-orangeish color with a modest white head and some really nice lacing. Aroma is predominately hops. Taste is dominated by the hop bitterness with very little underlying malty sweetness. More balanced toward the hops with a medium body and abundant carbonation. This is a fairly nice IPA which I enjoyed tasting.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Pours a bright orange with a clotted white head and large clingy carbonation. Aroma is citrusy and somewhat grassy - fresh and medium hop aromas. Mouth feel is thin and rough thanks to the carbonation. Could use some more malt body. While I like the 3 hops used in this beer, they seem to be mostly bittering and aroma with little flavor hops added to the boil.

Early September had me take a business trip to Eden, NC. Eden is home to a Miller Brewery, my company’s manufacturing plant and not much else. I am in town more than I ever thought and prefer the local Food Lion for purchasing beer. I was surprised to find Ranger IPA with it’s 1970’s throwback label for eight bucks a sixer. Aroma is a wall of green hops, golden, foamy, big bubbled head after poured into a Hampton Inn ecotainer paper cup. Simcoe, Cascade, and Chinook hops all unite in a well done, reasonably priced, enjoyable and drinkable IPA. Best find on this trip to Eden, Summer Bar & Grille is a distant second place.

Amber, bright. The aroma has earthy hops and caramelly malts...not very bright. Medium bitterness and some more of those bland caramelly malts.

Bottle. Pours clear dark orange with a thin white head. Piney hop aroma, with some grassy hay as well. Thin bodied, maybe suffering from aggressive filtration, the flavor of the simcoe does however hit the spot with some earthiness and light citrus. Finishes sharp bitter, could use more malt to temper the edges.

BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Can. An easy drinking, crisp India Pale Ale. Great hop flavor from start to finish. No sweetness and very little citrus if any, pure hop taste. Nice bitter finish that lingers just right.

Wow! It’s been a while since an IPA knocked me off my feet. This was downright fabulous. Aroma was very thick and full. Strong resinous hop aromas. Citrus, grassy and lots of hay. Pour was a nice deep gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was close to perfect. All hops from beginning to end. Strongly unbalanced (which is how I love my IPAs). Strong grapefruit, pine and grass. No malt to muddy things up. Nice carbonation down to the last drop.
