Braudog (5710) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2005
On draft at the brewpub, 9/1/05: Copper with an unexciting look. Nothing to this ... drinkable, but no aroma and little to no real discernable flavor.

On tap at Old Dominion Brew Fest ’05. Dark clear amber/red with a small beige head. Hoppy nose with a touch of caramel. Flavor has notes of grapfruit, citrus, pine, toasted malt and caramel. Pretty bitter, moderately sweet. Medium body with lively carbonation. Not bad.

argo0 (11453) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 26, 2005
(ODBF05) Crystal clear amber body with an off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, caramel, some grassy. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, light caramel, faint grassy. Light-medium body with light resin. Solid, if undistinguished, IPA on the pale ale side of things.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2005 Growler. Slightly hazy, copper ale with aromatic notes of honey, sherry and raisins. A touch musty. Lightly malty, decently balanced flavor. Iced tea with light to moderate bitterness. Light bodied and silky with soft carbonation. Short, watery, strawy finish. More like an Epa than an Ipa.

Copper color with nice retention of head. Very, very little hop bouquet for an IPA however, a nice refreshing taste with a slighly dry finish. A drinkable beer but not quite what you would look for in an IPA. I am anxiously awaiting the next release at the brewery which is promised to have much more body and character. Bring on the hops!!! It’s all about the hops!!!!

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Copper. Nose has a whiff of malts, some hops, nothing too distinctive. Taste is mostly bitter, a few backing malts, but they’re just vaguely sweet. A mite nutty. Thin.
