hopscotch (10080) - 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

DiarmaidBHK (3724) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 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.

Blairgus (3328) - 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.

Nejhleader (1332) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2013
An okay crisp brew. Has a bit of a nice spice taste blended with the hops, smooth aftertaste with standard bitter hop flavor.

Aggressively hopped, but more on the British IPA spectrum rather than the juicy west coast iteration.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2009
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, malts, slight toasting, slight caramel, and a hint of grapefruit. Poured amber/orange in color with a small to medium-sized, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Very good to excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly bitter. Tastes of hops, malts, slight toasting, slight herbs, and slight caramel. Medium body. Slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly bitter finish.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bomber. Pours an average, foamy, light tan head. Clear, amber body. Citrus and pine nose with some sticky crystal. More fruit in the flavor - pear and white grape accompany the suspected pine and grapefruit. More sweet crystal malt. Medium-full body with a sticky, resinous mouthfeel. Detracting. Lingering hop flavor with a bitter finish. Pretty good, but the mouthfeel really dragged it down for me.
