JohnGalt1 (1215) - , Idaho, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Draft at b:30... Pours clear dark golden with fluffy white head... Very pretty lacing... Absolutely bruising melon fruitbowl punctuated by resinous tangerine zest.. thick and somehow not sweet, just enough pale maltiness left over to really bloom the huge hoppiness up and out of the glass... Tons of hops on the palate, but not overly bitter making for a deceptively drinkable brew. IMO, this is better than 2x4 and that is saying something... This one is SPECIAL.

Syndicate (180) - Idaho, USA - FEB 5, 2016
On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a clear orange hue with a tight pillowy head. Standard piney/citrus hop aroma that at first doesn't tell the whole story. Flavor is hug tropical hops and sweet bready hops with just enough hop bitterness to deliver the goods. I'm not sure how to describe how really great this beer is. Melvin produces some of the best iPad I've ever had. Just stellar stuff.

On tap at bier 30. Wow this is a great double ipa. Great hop nose, not overly overly sweet and bitterness. Alcohol is very well hidden.

Westchesterco (1612) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2013
On tap at the brewery clear golden with a slight head aroma hard to pinpoint. Bitter taste long on the fonish

Iphonephan (5279) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2013
On draft at the brewery. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Fruity hop aroma. Flavors of grapefruit but with a mellowness. Lingering mild bitter finish.

beerbill (3598) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2013
On draught at the brewpub. Arrived a hazy amber gold with a thin linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left considerable lace. Very pleasant aroma of grapefruit. The flavor begins with a solid dose of malt followed by some mild-moderate grapefruit bitterness. The bitterness lingers briefly after the swallow. Medium bodied.
