Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average thick frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a mdium to heavy smooth bitter finish of moderate duration. A very good beer.

Bottle from John. Pours clear dark gold with a one finger off-white head. The nose is caramel, mango and ripe citrus. The taste is tangerine, caramel, grapefruit and a nice pine finish that lingers. Medium bodied. Nice IPA – very west coast in style.

nolankowal (931) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Draft. Transparent orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma of cirtus, a bit of caramel malt and pine. Flavors of sweet malt, a touch of booze and a citrus hop punch. Medium body, hoppy/bittersweet with a bitter finish. Not bad, though I’d like to try again after my palate is back in fighting shape as this was my first beer after a week hiatus. Not a bad one to start out with to be sure.

Pours a golden color with white head...some lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with grass and hay. Taste is dominated by hops. Can almost taste the grain and its texture. Great beer for the hopheads.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Sample on draft at Vintage Estate. So I had to pick between this and the Barrel Aged Gonzo, which wasn’t an easy choice. I decided to go light and hoppy and hoped that it wouldn’t be a letdown. The glass held a nice orangish-gold beer with just a little head. First sniff of the beer was enough. I was enamored by the crisp citrus and resin with a little bit of an almost cat pee edge to it. Sharp and crisp hops dominated the palate, but were offset and balanced by a lovely malt presence (honey and almost biscuit). Citrus flavors that are pretty unlike any other I’ve had were the main draw and I was kinda hoping that it would snow like crazy while I was in the store so I could just huddle in the corner next to the keg. Dynamite work, TBK!

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2011 Bottle thanks to jcwattsrugger. Pours peach with white head. Nose is an in your face blanket of pineapple and peach. Taste is dry clean peach and very light pine. Medium body. Probably the best straight up IPA I’ve ever had.

courtesy of veldrid, thanks a ton! very light, crisp pour with stark white head, some spotting. nice ipa, shows off the citra pretty well, very floral and fruity. drinks nice, lots of bitterness sticks around in the mouth, its a tongue curler but still drinks easy. great light ipa, very refreshing.

Thanks to crizay for the share. Pours clear orange gold with a white head. Nose is slight butterscotch, caramel, grapefruit hops, and bitterness. Flavor is similar with bitterness all over. Enjoyable medium-bodied IPA.
