Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2009
Well served very cold this beer is awesome. A honey amber body with a white head. Rich pine and citrus with a nice full hoppy honey character. As it warms the caramel comes out a bit more and its less impressive.

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2009
Thanks to Kramer for this. Pours a amber color with a great hoppy aroma of citrus and pine. Flavor is fairly standard, but still good. Not anything too out of the ordinary, but a good IPA. More citrus hops and pine.

hopscotch (9041) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2009
Bottle… C&P’sLYFO Throwdown… Fairly clear burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, fat-bubbled, white head. The nose is grassy and piney. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Perfectly balanced - much like a PNW IPA - with a pinch of salt. Crisp, moderately bitter finish. Bottle provided by otakuden! Video = http://homepage.mac.com/maltajo/RATEBEER/iMovieThe

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Transparent deep golden bronze color with a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of fresh citrusy grapefruity hops and a touch of pale malty sweetness. Body starts with good fullness and a nice amount of sweetness which is well-balanced with the resiny bittering and flavor hops before a crisp, bittersweet finish. A nice, very drinkable IPA.
