hopscotch (8915) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Bottle… Hazy dirty-orange ale with a small, creamy, fat-bubbled, white head. The nose is heavy on fruit – peach and apricot – also floral and resiny. Light to medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is medium bitter, but otherwise bland - not much going on here at all. Finished watery, raspy and bone dry with lingering bitterness. Sample courtesy of hankchinaski!

Thanks Josh for saving me some of this from a Growler. Poured an amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of floral hops, pine, some fruitiness, and citrus.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours a hazy copper with a tan head. Smells and tastes of resin and spice in a great, balanced way. Very enjoyable.

Thanks to Josh for sharing this growler. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a small head (poured from a growler that had been opened a week prior). Aroma of fresh pine, mango and citrusy hop notes, some caramel and bready malt. Flavor was much of the same. The citra hop qualities coming thorugh nicely in the flavor.

Pours amber into a Sam glass. Off-white frothy sea foam head recedes leaving gloppy lacing. Sweet tangerine and grapefruit aromas. Soft with sweet tropical citrus upfront turning to resin and grapefruit in the lasting pith finish.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Tap at brewpub: Orange, clarity. Nice catty aroma with pine and grapefruit. Clean, spicy resinous flavor with a soft malt sweetness. Long bitter piny finish. A bit thin bodied but decent.

AirForceHops (2992) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Draft, served in a pint glass. Pours an orange like hue and bubbly, foam head. Real good lace. Nose is real fruity, mostly grapefruit and tangerine with light resin. Taste is dead-on with the nose. No surprises and very straight forward. Very dry finish with a medium, lingering bitterness that goes with the body. However, it is a very run of the mill brew. Maybe a bit above average. Not really my thing. But some Hop Heads will like this.

Indra (2595) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Nicely fresh hop aroma, piney, citric, juicy and spicy, some nicely toasted malts as well, these also showing notes of caramel and honey, faint grapefruit and lemon appearing here as well. Light amber in color, clear, with a creamy, lasting head. Flavor is a good balance of piney hop flavor and crystal-like malt sweetness, honeyish and lightly toasty once again, before turning substantially more bitter and drying out to a large extent by the end. Lightly resinous palate, pretty low carbonation, surprisingly, body is medium. Surprisingly sweet for the style but tasty overall.

Bottle in trade from Pastor (joepais). Thanks man!!
Pours a rich opaque dark amber to maroon with a pillowy yellowish beige lasting head. Smell is sweet tropical fruits and candy. Sweet and lightly hoppy. Taste is very smooth and creamy with a red ale like sweet candy fruit malt flavor with moderate hop flavor and low bitterness. Smell fades quickly. Overall, a fairly mildly bittered and slightly sweet fresh hop beer, but nice.
