12 ponce can from Hayduke. A hazed and coppery pour. A big off whote fluffy head takes its time to fade and sticky lacing remains. A nice and clasdic west coast IPA aroma with caramel, citrus and pine. A big biting bitterness kicks in early. It is somehow multi layered bitterness. A rich feel. The hops are citrus including grapefruit with pine. Yeast is kind of bready. My only knock on this beer is that the bitterness almost over powers the flavors. It is not a shrinking violet beer.

Hazy burnished gold color out of the can with a sticky lasting off white head. Big fresh citrus hop nose with some hop flower notes. Definitely a hop forward beer with orange peel, red grapefruit, some tropical fruit sweetness and a grassy finish. Some caramel sweetness under it all. Tasty IPA.

Can sample at a tasting at Troubles’ place. Thanks Denny. Hazy amber, white wave. Dry onion and very hoppy aroma, dry, hoppy, a little fruity-pear taste. Light-to-medium body, soft carbonation, bitter, leafy finish.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - APR 12, 2015
Can sample at a tasting at Dror’s place. Thanks Denny. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of "green" and fruity hops. Dry flavor, with a grainy note, "green", piney and slightly fruity hops, and nice bitterness. Light to medium-bodied.

Capa (2238) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2015
Copper with a creamy, light tan head. Big pine and citrus aroma. Bold malt profile underneath. Full, silky body. Flavor starts rather hop forward before shifting to a malty middle and ending up with a harsh bitterness. Pine resin notes and caramel malt dominate. A pretty solid IPA.

Can. Deep gold, nice citrus nose, peaches, oranges, biscuits. Flavor is citrus and more pine, very, very bitter, biscuit malt. Good drinker but a bit too bitter.

Sockeye IPA dagger falls is a nice copper pour with a fruity citrus aroma. It has a soft pillowy mouthfeel. Very pithy & bitter at first but with a smooth and fruity finish.

PartyFowle (454) - - JAN 16, 2015
Deep ruby-orange hue, clear as a dense fog and capped with sticky white froth. Solid, citrusy aroma -- orange pith, grass, caramel. A very bitter IPA in flavor. Pith and grass are here again...and that’s pretty much it. It’s a biting IPA, snappy as hell. Not a crazy complex IPA, but a well-crafted one.

12 oz. can courtesy of Lectvay. Forgotten about can from our trade that really holds up well. Hazy amber with plenty of foamy head. Aroma is pine, hints of citrus and dry straw.

The main base of the beer has a light graininess that leads into a dry bitter pine finish. The bitterness is long lasting with some mild grassy notes as well. Big West Coast like IPA with a Simcoe, Cascade and perhaps Summit variety hops. Very straight forward and classic flavor profile. Solid.
