On tap at OConnors. Slightly hazy golden with white head. Aroma is lemony, citrus hops, herbs and slight dill. Taste is fairly dry, lemon, pine, dill, herbs with a hoppy finish. Ok.

12oz bottle from jmagnus off my charity box win from his generosity. Poured an uglier lightly muddied apple cider amber body with a smaller frothy white head. Aroma of green apple skins, wet bread, older resiny hop cones, rotting citrus. Medium to slightly thicker bodied with average carboantion and a lingering flavor on the aftertaste. Flavor of breads, caramel, rotting citrus meat, older hop cones, touch of cardboard for some reason and a hint of tea. Decent overall but not blown away. Still big thanks to Josh for the hookup on this one.

Rated ma 04.01.2016.

tap@gallows. Yellow light hazy. Citrussy nose, some hayish, green tart berries on nose, farmy/saisonny feel. Med bodied, crisp, bitter, slight tart even. Golden malty, dry honey, citrus, some tropical yellows. Feels rather belgy ipa. Apparantly not intended as such, guessing the keg hasnt had an easy trip. The finish is pretty harsh actually.

12oz bottle courtesy of GhostFace. Cheers, Neal! Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is a nice bit of caramel, orange, apricot, and mild pine notes. Flavor is similar- orange and apricot with pine and light alcohol on the back end. Light to medium in body with lingering pine. Nice iipa overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2010
On tap at the Oso taproom. Nothing like walking around looking at hops, malt and other related items while walking around with a nice tasty IPA. Amber with a thin white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with grapefruit, orange, light pine and some caramel but its not quite balanced out. Taste is a hop bomb with a fair amount of malt and a high bitter and peppery finish thats pretty aggressive. Grapefruit, orange, pine and some grassy hops with some caramel and tropical fruits. IPA all day, nice job Oso.

mile (3771) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish aroma, faint caramel and light - some tropical/berry fruitiness, citrus/piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and bread, light tropical/berry fruitiness, some citrus/piney hoppyness, Finish is average to long, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish, faint caramel and tropical/berry fruitiness, citrus - some piney hoppyness. OK dryish IPA - nice hoppy/fruity aroma. Flavor/finish could use bit more fruitiness. Not too much caramel.
