An average IPA. Dominated by its stickiness and the film it left in my mouth after every drink. Not a bad brew, tasted like a mellow version of Alpha King, but had the texture and property of grape juice (drys the mouth, leaves a sticky film).

Somehow a local grocer had a growler of this sitting in a display. Pour is a very cloudy yellow. Big points for the beer actually looking like melted yellow snow. Nice head that dissipates into a ring. Aroma is nice citrus hops. Lots of fruity hops in the taste and really a nice flavor, not too offensive. Flavor doesn’t last very long. Nice lacing. A solid brew.

Beautiful head on this one. Great blend of hops, and moderately bitter finish. Nice flavor, and finish to boot. Clean and crisp.

Bottle: Pale golden pour with a big off-white head. Huge amounts of lacing. Hoppy nose of citrus and fruit. Tastes of bigtime hops with citrus and pine. Sweet fruity and a tiny amount of malt. Bitters linger quite a bit. Very nice.

rocbyter (1886) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Strong citrus aroma. Cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. There was a strange glob on the side of the glass inside. Mildly sweet beginning with a sharp bitter finish.

thegreenrooster (3159) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Pour is an orange with a average white head. Aroma is a decent pine hop. Flavor is again lots of pine hops with a strong sweet malt in the backround. An average IPA. Not that that is a bad thing(this is better than many) but nothing in this one to put it over the top into an excellent category.

-golden yellow with mild white head. Spicy hop nose. Mild malt flavor, probably could be an improvement, but the contrast between the appearance and the strength of flavor is a nice contrast. The hop flavor is tremendous, a very piney and powerful presence. One of the best rogue beers I have had, a good version of an ipa

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Sample at the holiday beer tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 11/13/08. This beer is a hazy orange-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops, apricot and malt. Medium body with flavors of hops, grapefruit and a touch of sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
