Growler sampled at Noog Four-0 5/31/08: Pours a transparent bright orange with a spotty lacing white head. Aroma of semi-sweet toasty caramel malt and assertive resiny citrusy hops. Body starts with a finely dissolved carbonation and sweet pale malty notes with a good peppery grapefruity hop balance. Smooth bittersweet finish. A very enjoyable IPA.

Tap. Pours a deep gold with a very slight head. Aroma has sweet and fruity notes in there. Taste is slight sweetness up front, slight bitterness in the back, and a watery finish. I was let down by this one.

Bottle…Thinkin’ ‘Bout Thirteen Hours O’ Drinkin’ (tew man wrecking crew)... Clear, deep golden ale with little to no head. The aroma offers notes of toffee, caramel, grapefruit and cotton candy. Full-bodied and oily with fizzy carbonation. Very lightly acidic. Modest caramel sweetness precedes medium grapefruit pith bitterness. Lengthy, bitter finish. Bottle provided by mgumby10!

Handbottle courtesy of Miver. Pours a fairly clear amber, with a small off white head. Smells of citric hops and a balancing malt presence, as well as some citrus fruit as well. Theflavor was also really well balanced with a perfect amount of hop bitterness, spicy pepper, and grapefruit all mixed in together nicely. The pepper really lingers in the aftertaste giving it a nice sharp bite. Had some good flavor going on here. Enjoyed this.

Handbottle courtesy of Miver. Anber with nice beige head, growing legs, great lacing. Aroma is tad muted, but a nice balance of toasted grain, pine resin and light grapefruit. Flavor is dominated by pine resin and grapefruit. 2 hop sneeze thus far. Nice backbone of toastred grain and light caramel. Medium body, creamy smooth, carbonation lacks a little. Overall a nice session IPA. Thanks Joe!
