Can shared up at Proof by Matt (thanks!). Copper pour. Aroma is floral hop, cereal. Tastes: big, resiny, even, citrus bitter. Nice. Would like to try again. 7.6

Dogbrick (8907) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Pours a bright slightly hazy golden-orange color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of grapefruit, hops, pine and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Ataraxia (401) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Lightly hazy golden color, dense and frothy white head. Very mild aroma of orange and grapefruit. Juicy sweetness comes out in the taste. Smooth, a little bit oily, and almost light-bodied. A good clean and crisp finish. Almost no alcohol presence.

Found some cans at a local store. Great pour with an inch of white head. Pretty orange color. Great fresh hop aroma. The strength is evident but not overbearing. Appropriately bitter which a good finish. I could readily drink too much of this.

mverity (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Can share at Proof courtesy of Matt Masterson. Pours a pale slightly hazy yellow. Good bubbly white head that lasted almost a minute. Thin collar. Nice spicy, piney hop aroma with a fair amount of malt sweetness noticeable. Taste is the same. Great. Again, not a piney hop fan, but when itís done well, it really works. High carbonation and medium body.

Blind #5 - 12oz can A: Standard pull tab status. Decent gaseous exchange upon cracking. Pours out like mamaís chicken broth: turbid and glowing with a bit of a burnt tinge to it. A soapy off-white quilt rests into a collared sheet of the same. Polka-dot laced. (3) S: Sweet malt up front - cara pils feel to the nose. I canít explain what it is, but cara pils, honey malt and the like give a different ďfeelĒ to the nose - slightly muggy, but in a good way. My nostrils flare and I take in citrus, marshmallows and apricots oh my! Slightest hint of american yeasty beasts. Overall sweet and easy nose. (3.5) T: Still really sweet this one. My immediate reaction is this is a winter time IPA (as I like super light malt with sharp hops in the summer) - sweet, relatively thick. This lugs quite a bitter jab on my palate. A nearly spicy finish has me thinking either this has rye, or intriguingly hidden ABV.... The fruits remain native to the olfactory experience while my buds take on the battle of sweets and bitters. Iím a bit thrown off by this one due to the malt profile - starting to thing ESB with dry hops. Shit, this is getting scary. (3.5) M: Medium to heavy to my judgment (penultimate in value). Prickly carbonation is retained through the breadth of time required to take this in. Slick finish and resonating tannic feel. The body on this is quite nice. (4) O: Blindly speaking, if somebody handed me this and said it was a homebrew, I would think it was a slightly bitter ESB, or an IPA in need of some hop schedule adjustments. Either way, not a bad beer, and in looking at the numbers, I should not give two buckets of my wifeís deuce what the label is - cuz I love whatís inside (in my wifeís case, me). (4) Guess: an IPA. Not better guesses after that, donít recognize the malt or hop profile. Reveal: NEBCO Gandhi-Bot! Man, I wish there was a can date on there. Iíve heard such different things about this beer, Iím surprised there wasnít more up front. I think if they toned down the bittering hops a hare, and then dry hopped the fuck out of this it would be epic. Serving type: can 05-29-2011

Growler shared. Pours a clear copper with a white head of foam. Tropical fruits and grass. Fruity and sweet and mildly bitter. Delicious.

Just under the best ipas. really solid hops profile. Dank grapefruit and pine notes. For me the bitter finish lasted just a touch to long.

can thanks to forcabrew. very hoppy and citrusy nose. Taste is also citrus hops, but very smooth, wouldnít think it was 85IBU. a touch sweet, balancing the hops, but killing the finish, no significant alcohol warming. pretty good, but not mind blowing.

DrewFace (928) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Can thanks to Homer321. Pours a hazy orange color with big fluffy off white head. Big citrusy - grapefruit hop aroma, piney, lightly danky. Big hop flavor up front in the flavor, more danky grapefruit type character, followed by well balanced malt backbone.
