cheap (4054) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Had this at the 2011 Pittsburgh Ratebeer Christmas Eve Eve Tasting. 12 oz bottle of rude ipa, certainly on style as far as I’m concerned. Clear and a little darker than a pale lager. Big hoppy aroma. Taste is of course over the top hops but it is a little dull. Surprisingly, it does have some creamy carbonation, something I’m not used to in a strong ipa. Finish? Bitter long medicinal feel. Again, on style.

MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2011
hazy amber, thin lasting white ring. Nose is stale cardboard and cheese, light grass and resin. Flavor is more resin and grapefruit front, mid is caramel and oxidation, finish shows more resin and light fruit. Thin, sticky, hopefully this isn’t fresh.

Blairgus (2607) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2011
12 July 2011, bottle. light amber, slightly pinkish, clear, steady bubbles. frothy tan head. sweet malt and rosy hops in the nose. med/thin watery body w/ some carbonation. can’t say i’m a huge fan of this. it is arather nettle/briar hop flavor. there’s no real sweetness or malt flavour and the hops aren’t the best to rest a beer on.

Lubiere (9998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2011
A dark amber IPA with a thin off white head. Smooth British hops aroma with grassy and nutty notes. In mouth, a crisp malt base with very British herbal hops, lingering bitterness, medium bodied. Nice. On tap at PA Flavor, April 9th, 2011.

Nice citrus notes on the nose. Pours a ruby brown with a light white head. Big hop explosions on the tongue especially if you aerate it. The taste lingers nicely.
