glowing amber, medium white head good lacing. Skunkier nose than Swample, Christmas-wreath aisle paper and earthy mushroom. Front palate is light paper and orange, very cobweb muted profile with plenty of moss, papery bitterness as well. Finishes herbaceous, lightly piney chartreuse esque end, paper my dough end.

Pours dark gold with a medium white head. Aroma is tropical citrus, earthy and a light caramel. Taste is moderate bitters. Medium bodied, silky smooth, good carbonation with a quick finish.

Ernest (7202) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2016
Draft at Al’s / Pizza Boy in Enola. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (apricot, resin, grapefruit), with notes of diacetyl and taffy. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. A bit clunky and syrupy, but OK. One of their weaker IPAs.

Poured a dark golden color with a white head. Aroma was of resin and oranges. Flavor was more towards the earthy floral aide, lots of cebtennial.

Cloudy golden amber pour with aroma of grapefruit, bread, and pine. Tropical fruit flavor with bread notes, citrus, and some pine. Decent beer.

Crowler shared by shrubber85 - thanks again, Roger! Marked "Dry Hop" instead of "Double Dry-Hopped," not that I’m sure either designation matters. Pours a cloudy gold color with a moderate white head that settles into a ring and islands of film while lacing the glass. Notes of citrus fruits, soap, straw, sweet and cereal and bready malts, and some bitter floral zest. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, bready, bitter, floral mouthfeel. Has a fairly big malt component as well as a good dose of bitterness, though not entirely in balance.

Crowler (thanks to Travlr). Tangerine malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Good body. Straight forward.

@ phaleslu’s cinci tasting. 32oz crowler, thanks to shrubber for sharing. This one is labeled as "dry hop". Double dry hop? Hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Good bits and short ropes of lace. Big citrus, tangerine orange, some lemon. Mild peppery spiciness. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, very light sweet, more dry. Pretty dry. Pretty nice citrusy peppery IPA.

I know I had this. Somehow my rating went missing. Pours a clearish orange with a white head. Aromas of citrus hops. Taste is actually on the sweeter side.
