Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 23, 2014
In short: A clean, caramelized, piney, resinous and very bitter golden IPA. Simple and tasty.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed relatively fresh not long after receiving the bottle from mcberko, thanks a lot Matt.
The look: Clear golden body topped by a small off-white head.
In long: The moderately aromatic nose is mostly resinous piney hops along with some caramel undertones. In mouth the beer feels medium in size, a texture that is a bit on the sticky-oily side, a medium carbonation, decent mouthfeel. Taste is straightforward. There is some nice caramel (not really creamy, not crisp, just plain soft caramel candy) along with a whole lot of piney hops that have a strong resinous character. Only mild citrusy and fruity notes here, this is mostly plain piney and resinous hops. High bitterness intensity. Strangely, an old-school IPA like this one feels kind of original nowadays with in straight-up resinous piney bitterness in a new world of IPAs dominated by all kinds of aromatic fruity flavors. Named after a book describing how Jesus walked on water to prove he was the son of God and how he broke up with a girlfriend because he couldn’t stand that she was screaming the name of his father during sex.

liquidhedonism (185) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Aroma is earthy and grassy, with hints of dank basement and barnyard. Mouthfeel and taste is just bitter, bitter, bitter, with a bit of maltiness.

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2014
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy blonde with a small creamy white head. Nose reveals notes of citrusy hops, some earthy notes, and a touch of caramel. Flavour brings out stone fruits, a sharp bitter resinous hop profile, and some caramel. Sweeter than I expected from the colour and nose. A bit cloying on the finish, which detracts some points for me. Decent, but too sweet for an IPA for me.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Hazy light straw-tan with a thick creamy head. Aroma is very grapefruity, orangey, with maybe some phenols. Stacks of hop...intense bitterness...grapefruit, touch yeasty and marginal malt. Different...really intense.

chuckstout (278) - Washington, USA - APR 16, 2014
Star fruit, earth, pine in the aroma. Pours a golden/orange with white dense foam and good lacing. Full bitter mouthfeel with rind, bread, caramel, earth, pine slightly heavy hop bitterness.

WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
(From a month ago... moved from Scullers.... sorry, wrong beer) On draught at Garricks Head, Victoria, Canada. Light amber, white head. Nose is the usual pine and citrus, but a bit lighter than usual, grassy, with a spritzy feel to it that combined with the citrus reminds me of Orangina. Grass and Orangina dominates the flavour. Palate is really smooth. Dry finish.

At least it’s unique.

Lagerboy (1336) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Bomber, 7.4% ABV (apparently) Mostly clear orange, firm white foam settles and mostly lasts. Aroma of caramel malt and pine hop. Bitter resinous piney hop forward taste, some citrus grapefruit and faint c-malt. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, more aggressively hopped. C-malt presence increases as it warms, still finishes earthy and bitter. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

stantheman (675) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A pale amber color with a bit of white head. Citrus pine on the nose. Strong bitter pine resinous on the tongue, with a decent malt backup chorus. Bitter finish. Yup. A good’un!

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2013
On tap at jones radiator A: copper with a finger of white, billowy foam. This falls to a skeleton quilt of the same. Spot lace. S: English earthy resiny hops. Smells like it’s gOnna be one dimensional. Not much going on here. T: bitter. Notes of resin. Mostly bitter with biscuit and dry malts. Some astringent accents. M; medium bodied with moderate carb. Really exceptionally dry making me want a glass of water. O: I prefer my IPA’s to have more flavor in addition to brutal bitterness. This one misses the mark. Very simple. A dry, oppressive gospel. Serving type: on-tap 12-31-2011

Gerbeer (2005) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours an amber color with light head. Aromas of grass, citrus, and toast. Flavors of lemongrass, pine, and toasted malts over-ridden by a very strong bitter finish. Seems to be very different from the other ratings...
