Golden Rule is an organic tribute to an English style India Pale Ale, using 100% organic 2-row malted barley, enormous doses of hops from New Zealand, and an English yeast strain. A simple malt bill provides for a light golden color, and prominent earthy and grassy hop flavors. Brew unto others as you would have brewed unto you.

I was surprised that this was listed as an IPA! More along the lines of an APA to me. lightest IPA ever.....but very good...APA/IPA hybrid maybe.

12oz bottle, thanks to FlandersNed. Sticker on the cap reads "3-12". Very cloudy golden orange color. Pours with a very big white head that just sort of stays put. Leaves plenty lace. Taste seems to have gone sour here. Itís tart, and moderate bitter. Medium body. Soft carbonation, with a very dry texture. If this is infected, itís not terribly bad, here. Kind of works. Has a nice lemony citrus aroma. Light grassy hop. In the end, pretty decent stuff, especially after itís had a chance to sit for a while. Much better than I expected for a 1.5 year old IPA, Iím thankful that itís not just a caramel-malt bomb (donít get any of that, in fact)

Countbeer (5309) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle: Very big blown vast thick and slowly settling down white head. A fluffy white head/island lacing on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Aromas of hops, citrus, hints of lime and grapefruit, floral, herbs and creamy grains. Crispy jacket. Flavours of herbal and floral hops with some citrus and grapefruit, hint of creamy malts and a nice growing bitterness. Aftertaste is a mix of floral hops, fruity hebs, bitters and some green grass. Low to medium carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, good medium body and a light creamy texture. Crispy, citrussy, bitter and freshly balanced. Could drink this all day.

Cloudy gold beer, decent white head. This was a mild gusher, possible carrying a mild infection. Light palate, crisp and frothy. Creamy malt. Seltzer minerals. Sharp grapefruit bitterness. Finishes crisp. Refreshing but a little one dimensional.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 15, 2012
On tap Birch & Barley Wash. DC. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with aone finger white head and light lacing. Smells of pale malts, earthy and floral hops with a bit of citrus too. Taste has a very nice hop bite, quite a bit bitter, citrusy and floral. Along with an odd metallic taste and some pale biscuity malt. Medium in body and carbonation.

Bottle from, Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands, consumed at home, Sunday 14th October 2012 Pours light gold, touch hazy. Dry, bitter but refreshing. I like the fact that this is not swamped in a sweetness, it really is quite decent. Nice softness in mouth, touch pithy with grapefruit showing. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6

Huhzubendah (2996) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2012
On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer appears light amber in color, with 1/4" of white head. The aroma is earthy, with scents of malt and pine. The beer has more malt than hop presence. Flavors of earthy pine, light resin, and malt. The beer has a light bitterness to it, most notably in the finish. An OK beer. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-10-2011

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle:   Straw colored, a bit hazy, moderate to large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Muted hop nose, a little stale, very soft tobacco leaf.   Moderate hoppiness up front, not very biting.   Comes across as a stale pith, aged.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish has a very dull hoppiness, stale pith, and subtle tea/tobacco leaves.   Not bad, but not bright or sharp, and without any real bit of sweetness.   Thanks for the bottle Kevin!

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma has some flowery and herbal hops, some fruity notes. Nice. Flavour is strong bitterness, quite dry, flowery hops again, some spice. Nice.
