degowop (34) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2010
On draft at The Mooring in Newport, Rhode Island. Hoppy and somewhat fragrant, though citrus notes missing. Excellent local craft IPA to enjoy with lobster on a beautiful sunny day in Newport.

BVery (7961) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tap at Trinity. Hazy orange pour with a white head. Some citrus, but quite malty. Too malty for my taste in IPAs.

AirForceHops (4530) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Draft @the pub. Light hazy amber color, so.e head. Aroma is herbal with a weak amount of citrus fruits. Flavor shows a pretty lashing bitterness that turns exceedingly dry after the swallow. The flavor shows more of an herbal tones over the citrus. Pretty aggressively hopped APA. Or lower end IPA. Decent

blipp (6974) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Citric and spicy hops, almost lemony, with a relatively clean pale malty base. Good, not great.

BeerandBlues2 (10785) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is earthy, pine and resin hops with apple esters with biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with light malt and fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 10, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2015 12 oz bottle which is admittedly 3-months old (which is older than I’d like for an IPA review.) Light, hazy amber-orange with an inch of frothy sea-foam head which decays at a moderate rate. Aroma is a bit of caramel, moss, and hint of evergreen. Medium body with medium-coarse carbonation, slight burn. Flavor is a fair amount of lingering somewhat astringent bitterness. A bit of caramel and butterscotch. Slightly hot on the exhale. A bad IPA. I likely won’t finish it.

50belair (2956) - Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Clear orangish/yellow pour with a white head. Light citrus hop bouquet. The taste follows suit. Nice balance with a sturdy malt backbone. Good body and mouthfeel.

Strykzone (5534) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Sampled at the brewery. Golden with some browner hues. A small layer of foam. I taste tropical fruit first and then caramel. Bitter citrus after that. Almost classic west coast with tropical and citrus fruit flavors. Some tangerine is noted later. That fruit makes this a fine beer.

drsordr (1547) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Draft to taster at brewpub. Pours hazy brownish gold. Nose wood, grass, an d some mango hop. Taste bitter up front then slight vinous. Almost unripe and green flavor. Moderate bitter finish.

Cybercat (4033) - Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy honey golden with a decent pale buff head. Aroma is not strong, but hoppy enough to get your attention. Flavor is boldly hoppy, more woody than resiny, somewhat bitter, with citrus and malty hints. Smooth, firm texture is fairly lively. A respectable IPA from R.I.
