illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Bottled from Miked. Pours copper amber with a dissipating ivory head. Aroma of floral hops and caramelly pale malts. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat complex malt backbone of caramel, chocolate, and toasty malts, nicely countered by the juicy citra hops. Bitter finish with resin at the very end. Very nice IPA, especially if you like malty IPA. West Coast in bitterness, but East Coast for maltiness.

"cory, who sent me this delicious elixir, is pretty spot on in his review. this has a west coast citrus aspect, a tropical fruit (think pineapple and peach) aspect, a sweet caramel toffee aspect, and is super fresh in the bottle. big and smooth. the label looks like a half US flag, half English. British malts? Idunno...either way, this is an elite ipa. $4, really?"

Strykzone (4966) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle received in trade with awlcordell. This honey gold beer is clear and has a one finger gold tinted layer of foam. First sniff was tangerine but then spices and citrus. The flavor is bitter onion with brown sugar, citrus, and tropical fruit. This is a hop bomb with little in the way of malts tasted. There is some sweetness underneath, though.

12 oz bottle. Aroma has a faint cracker malt character. Moderately strong tropical fruit and stone fruit notes with a lot of passion fruit. Lighter citrus character with faint hop resin. Pours a pale, Fairly clear, golden orange with a medium sized, moderately thick, white head. Moderate lacing and faint legs. Flavor has a slight, sweet cracker and biscuit character with a bit of honey. Moderate bitterness with fairly strong hop character. Lots of tropical fruit, especially pineapple and passion fruit. Some light stone fruit character with a bit of resin and moderate citrus notes. Light alcohol notes in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice IPA with a great tropical fruit aroma and flavor. Nice complimentary stone fruit and citrus. The malt note is starting to turn or may be a bit of from what I prefer. Still a really good IPA.
