22oz bottle I shared with my cousin Michelle. Cool story on the label of where the name 113 came about. Nice amber color. Aroma of towering hop aromas built on a malt foundation. Amazing florals during the pour. Bitter flavors on the palate right to the dry finish. Very simple, but I wish I had another.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Clear amber gold with a tan head. Well balanced caramel malt and grassy hop. Dry, bitter finish. A bit one dimensional, but it does what it does well.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rusty orange pour with a reasonably lasting beige skin. Nose of lavender, toffee, and fruit bubblegum. As it warms, a truly offensive suggestion of dried pus on a used band-aid kind of envelops the rest. Tastes mildly of citrus with expired inferences of buttered toast and wet wood. Finishes with iron and chlorine treated water. A mist of floral shampoo disseminates quickly after swallowing. Coating. Palate is medium bodied and somewhat chemical, which is hardly a surprise at this point. Drinkable and even reasonably refreshing, despite its rather major flaws. These would likely be tempered quite a bit if consumed extremely fresh. Letís emphasize extremely. Thanks Jason!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the best balanced IPAs Iíve had to date. Aroma of grassy hops with some grapefruit. Pour was a beautiful burnt orange with a nice 2 finger white head. Taste was deliciously hoppy but not kill your taste buds hoppy as some IPAs tend to be. The malt in the beer immediately balances out the hops explosion to perfectly round out this near perfect IPA.

22oz bottle @ Coles IPA fest Buffalo NY. Nothing real special here, one of my least favorite of the day. Malty medium grapefruit hops here. maybe the competition was too much for this one

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[290-20070503] Bottle (c/o mds, w/ him, blankboy, GregClow, jerc). Orange grapefruit hops aroma with some sideways alcohol. Hazy with floaties, amber orange body with a big foamy light tan head. Like sucking on a very hoppy pellet, this has a dry bitter orange peel flavour. Medium body. Not pleasantly blended pour moi.
