chinchill (1722) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Contract brewed for Liquor Barn - not likely to be even average you might think. But wait, this IPA looks and smells great, and is above average overall. The aroma is a strong point, with citrus and tropical fruits, including pineapple, mixed with a faint breadiness. Quite a bit more pine come forward in tasting, with a moderate grapefruit rind aftertaste. Of course, some hop heads will like these qualitites, but I wish it tasted more like it smells. Still, worth trying, especially at this price point.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Murky orange, big beige head. Smells like citrus and caramel. Pretty heavy mouthfeel. Lots of brown sugar and caramel in the flavor, with a lot of dry, woody hops. Seems like there is a good deal of residual sugar, too. Bone dry finish.

hayseo (24) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottled in December 2012, drink in May 2013 I like the dating on the label. Highly hopped IPA, transparent dark amber color. citrusy poppy Aroma. Very little head that dissipates quickly. A unpleasant lingering bitter aftertaste on the sides of the tongue.

ContemplateBeer (1507) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Really surprised this is rated so high; what do I know? Aroma of simple (and somewhat sweet) caramel malts and moderate-high citrus hops. Appearance is dark cloudy copper with quickly dissipating white head; the initial pour was very carbonated, but this also go away rather quickly. The flavor reminds me of BBC APA (not quite as highly ranked), which pretty much matches the nose, but has an unpleasant lingering bitterness that coats the tongue. The palate is bubbly and also soft. A bit of a chore to drink.

Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2012
In short: A mess, moderately hoppy bronze American Strong Ale. Meh.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed relatively fresh one month after purchase, bottle forwarded to me by drfabulous, thanks a lot Jeff
The look: Cloudy golden-bronze body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Lacklustre nose of dank hops over sweet barley candy. Taste is muddy, yeasty, tired fruity hops, sweet dirty barley candy lollipop picked up from the floor, cranberries, dirty front lawn grass, iced-tea, tobacco. Sticky resinous finish with concentrate fruit juice after-taste. It is not because I list many flavor elements that this is a complex beer, this is more of a mess that taste many things but has no direction and no purpose. 8% is too high for an IPA, it could be classified a IIPA but even that would be misleading, this is really an American Strong Ale, and not a very good one at that. Kind of reminiscent of CCB 110K batch 4, and that is not a compliment. Not my kind of IPA at all, but at least since the beer release I spent over 4 years without drinking it.
