bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Floral hop aroma backed by caramel malt. Something of an apricot color with a white head that filmed while lacing strangely. Medium bodied, almost creamy. Mild carbonation. Floral hop, maybe a bit of citrus, with mild caramel sweetness. As the sweetness goes, the finish is hop, hop, hop. This is great.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2006
22oz bottle. Poured a deeper and cloudy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of light caramel, floral, and some citrus. Also a little on the earthy side. Tastes of grapefruit, caramel, and citrus. Decent enough balance for an IPA. Lacing left on the glass.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Bottle. Orange with a large head. Lots of yeast and peaches in the nose, with some yeast floaties appearing on the surface of the hop pool. Flavor is a dull nutty orange, not too sweet... a little acidic on the tongue. Mediocre to below average IPA.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Bottle sampled on 8/5/06: Pours a hazy copper bronze with a big, clingy frothy and over-carbonated cream-colored head. Fresh piny, resiny hoppy aroma has a touch of drier pale maltiness. Body starts with a foamy, lightly sweet dry malty character turning more earthy and bitter toward the crisp finish. A decent IPA, done fairly true to style.

Bottle. Somewhat hazy dark amber with a cream-colored head. Nice cascade aroma. Nice citrus, slight earth, floral, pine flavor with backing malt. Medium body. Decent bitterness. Lingering lemon/grapefruit with slight pine and slight floral notes.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Bomber courtesy of scrizz. Pours amber with a white head. Smells of perfume, caramel, doughy. Tstes of resin, pepper, melon, grassy. Decent.
