Cybercat (3888) - Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pours barely translucent dark honey golden-brown with a thin buff head. Hoppy aroma had a strong citrus note and a malty underpinning. Strongly hoppy flavor has firm fruity notes, cotrus and apple, plus malty and caramel hints. Fairly firm texture is rather fizzy. Put on yer Imperial hat!

Bomber. Pours a flaky reddish dark amber with a resilient, creamy white head. Aroma is barley sugar, red fruit and light hops. Flavor is barley sugar, fruits, caramel, resin and alcohol. Finish is herbal and grapefruit. Lingering red candy. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation.

Blairgus (3075) - California, USA - DEC 1, 2014
1 dec 2014, bottle. Light orange, clear, some bubbles and sediment. Nose is bitter grass, resin, and alcohol. Med/full body and mildly fizzy. Sweet malt and alcohol, grassy hops aren't very bitter but they are dry and linger. Alcohol lingers a bit as well. Pretty good!

halfonit (1217) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 16, 2014
I think this might be a bottle I keep for the shelves. Pours a murky deep dark golden brown color. Amber. Thick off white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus and grain. Kind of a hoppy fall harvest scent. Full palate. Very dry hop bite hits me smack in the face. This is probably one of the driest beers I’ve ever had. Bitter, boozey, thick, different, mouthwatering.

George999 (229) - Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Solid flavors, strong hoppy finish, does not destroy your taste buds, pours Amber to brown in color, pours a little hazy, aromas are hoppy, overall this is a strong IPA, with complex flavors that finish strong
