Shared growler thanks to CMUBEERMAN. Pours orange, off white head. Aroma is hops, tangerine, caramel, slightly fuzzy. Flavor is bitter, caramel, tangerine, a little too syrupy.

My 100th IPA Rating!!! (including DIPAs) Big thanks to adrian910ss for this growler. Nice hazy-amber color with a medium head. Thick hop aroma with lots of pine, strong citrus, and other sweet hop essence. Flavor was a pleasant hop-blast that really delivers with tons of hop bitterness and citric sweetness. I’m getting lots of grapefruit and some resiny pine plus a nice, yet subtle malt backing that is sweet yet allows the hops to do their thing. I really have to make it up there one of these days. Nice DIPA!

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Pours a hazy medium orange/brown body with a head so thick it looks like a slice of swiss cheese is laying across the top. A roma is sweet citrus, pine and sourdough. Lots of pine and patchouli in the flavors with a sweet citrus/carmel finish.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Hazy pale body with small off-white head. The aroma is cotton candy, herbal and citrus. The flavor is caramel, dough, grapefruit and pithy. Medium body, soft carb and slightly thin on the finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6536) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 I have had this one several times over the years and have remained quite fond of it. Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a dark caramel amber color with a small off white head. The aroma was strong fruity and piney hops. The flavor was very strong pine and grapefruit with a sweet and tangy malt undertone. The finish is long, sweet and fruity. Full bodied.

On draft at Ottos, Penn State. Poured hazy copper with pungent piney nose. Perhaps a bit thin, but fantastic citrusy hops. Another impressive offering from Ottos.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2007
My first sample of the day at CL RB gathering. Hand-bottled 22oz provided by Dickinsonbeer. Really fresh aroma, juicy and ripe. Good body and balance to this one, hops were big without being in your face. I liked this better than both Hop 15 and Pliny the Younger.

I had this right after the Pizza Port Hop 15 (both courtesy of the very generous Dickinsonbeer). They tasted so much alike, I couldn’t believe it. The big difference was in mouthfeel. The Double D is more carbonated--and thus a little weaker feeling. Great hop flavor, tons of pine mixed with generous doses of caramel malt. My first beer from Ottos, and certainly won’t be my last.
