Part of an IPA tasting, full pour. Amber/gold with tall frothy head. Lots of stone fruit up front in the nose...white nectarines stand out for some reason. Pineapple traits carry through as well. Taste has some mango, peach as well. Lighter on the fruits and heavier on the spruce notes in the body. Nice resiny finish. Gnarly.

Pour is a nice clear but deep golden with a nice foamy head. Citrus with a premium on peach and tangerine notes on the nose along with some piney aromas. The taste is tangy peach and tangerine as well with a hint of grapefruit and a piney after taste. The IPA is bitter but not harsh and a pleasure to drink. I would rate it as one of Ohio’s best and probably the best IPA I have had this summer.

First tried on draft in Columbus, OH at Crest Tavern. Got a 6 pick this afternoon at Savor Market in Columbus. Poured in a chilled, stemless wine glass. This IPA smells terrific, deep and pungent floral and pine, a fresh cut lawn on a Sunday afternoon. Nice foamy head (poured hard to induce more head). The piney flavor envelops the tongue and leaves delicious aftertaste. This is one of Ohio’s finest IPA offerings.

Growler. Brilliant citrus nose. Beautiful lacing. The taste is awesome, more citrus with some sweetness and a nice malty balance. Maybe the best OHIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle... Clear golden ale with a small, brief, white head. The aroma delivers loads of resin, grapefruit and musk. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is all about heavy bitterness - both rindy and tannic. Finishes raspy, bitter, and then dry. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but should be pretty fresh. Pours slightly hazy deep gold color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, honey, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity of big citrus/tropical/grassy hops with light-moderate malt balance; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel/rind, pine, floral, grass, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity or bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops and light-moderate malt sweetness; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible IPA. All around fantastic complexity of bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops with light-moderate malt balance; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. An extremely outstanding offering.

Fruity, hoppy scent. Hoppy flavor comes on strong and smoothed quickly. Not overly bitter. I really like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle via trade. Light gold pour with a medium white head. Fresh west coast vibes on the nose. Grapefruit meat and a bit of salty driftwood. Herbal hop dankness. Hops very much on display. Extremely reserved malt profile. Pineapple and lemon pie flavors. A bit of funky gym locker. Mild biscuit to keep things in check. Quite drinkable. Not overly aggressive. Dry mineral finish. Light body, zippy on the palate. Nice.
