Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Tap @ K&B. Pours a deep coffee brown / black with a creamy beige head that left some nice lacing. Great nose of piny hops and roasted malts. A very tasty brew.

GT2 (8507) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Tap at PP/SC. Poured near black with gigantic sheety lace everywhere. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, muted citrus hops. Taste is a little lacing- lots of balance brings out little to no character, muted bitterness, some vegetal notes, black olives, mostly bready. Dry palate.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2010
On tap at Pizza Port San Clemente. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, some citrus and pine mixed in. Flavors of mostly roasted malts and chocolate, citrus, bit of pine, and faint hops.This one may have faded a bit since tapped. Basically just a porter with a bit hop presence at this point.

Aroma is hops. Grassy, minty, close your eyes and it smells like a west coast hop bomb. appearance is black w/w a white head. Taste is a perfect balance of dark roasted malt and sweet grassy hops. A real treat. I was really surprised that they were able to balance this out so nicely. The mouth feel is a bit runny for me and seems to play to the IPA side of this concoction rather than the roasty side. Overall this is a great beer. Oddly refreshing and sip-able with a nice roast flavor balanced by a strong hop punch.

Dogbrick (8239) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. Pours black with a brownish tinge around the edges. Medium beige head that lasts awhile. Roasty aroma with grassy hops notes. Medium body with flavors of hops, roasted malt and a bit of citrus. The finish is hoppy with a lingering toasted bread aftertaste. Good brew all around.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ - Seal Beach, CA. Wonderful juicy-fresh hop aroma, nice and minty, leafy, and snappy, mixed with just the right amount of malt roast. Pours a mahogany brown-black, paler, with a nice coca-cola colored head. Flavors are incredibly. Well balanced hoppiness, gentle roasted malt sweetness, and nice super clean alcohol. I just love the way the upfront hop flavors in this beer meet up with the dry, cocoa-powder crispness of the roasted malt in the finish. Superbly balanced and flavorful. An all around delight.

On tap. Pours with a black body and a tan head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, cookie, and a bit hoppy. Taste is bitter, dusty, spicy, hoppy, floral. A bit or orange. Dry and bitter.

Very distinctive nose, less so for the flavor, but it’s a nice IPA, which is high praise from a malt-head like me. Thanks cquiroga, it was great meeting you. Bottle shared at RBSG 2009 grand tasting.

Thanks to cquiroga for this glass. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Nose and flavor are full floral and grassy hops with some dry earth and citrus. Some sweetness from a caramel and bready malt influence as well. Well done again, Julian.
