[Bottle from Beermouth tasted with the hop-bros at Jess’ cosy inn.]
Had some fun over this and talked about the smell of fruity cat urine aroma from the cats livingbox. Not the best notes for an IPA (my style). It must be the combination of some fruits such as abricots, grape fruits and flowers which can make it that way. A lightbodied flavor, some watery in spite of the 7,5 %, but it all ends up in a dry finish.

Slight reddish/orangey color with light yellowish hue and good white head. Good hoppy bitterness, but lactually lack’s the hoppy aroma. Very fruit like with lemon, peach and spice. Got some grassy aromas and taste. quit thin when you think of the label.

Bottle. Aroma of grapefruit and apples. Good palate. Overall the flavor is sweet and fruity (mostly from the hops), and there is some slight bitterness. Nice balance in flavor.

12oz bottle, no date from Dickinsonbeer, thanks Paul! Pours a clear honey orange with a one finger offwhite head with pretty good retention. Aroma of grapefruit and piney hops, caramel and a bit of toasty malts. Very nice hop aroma. Flavor was a bit more piney with some good earthy bitterness to go with the caramel and toasty malts, followed by some biscuits and a semidry minimally bitter finish. Moderate carbonation with a creamy medium body. This is good stuff.

Courtesy of Jasonmech77. Thanks, Jason. The aroma, while hoppy, was not the nose crinkling, senses jarring experience I’d expected fromt he label depicting a hand scqueezing every last drop of hop oil from a hop cone. In fact I smell me some caramel malt in there. The body is a tea colored amber with a diminishing tan head that leaves copious lacing. Fore is, again, not as hoppy as anticipated. Definitely a hoppy brew, but there is a bracing malt balance and the hops lean toward a kind of essence oil of citrus and pine. Finishes fairly sweet and malty, but mixed with hop bitterness. Drinkable and not the hop bomb I feared.

Pours a light amber with little head. It has a lovely hop aroma; mainly pomegrante and floral/earthy tones. It doesn’t taste as good, but it is still pleasant. The flavor is less sweet and more piney. It is very bitter but that fades after the smooth finish.

Bottle: Clear gold with a white head. It has a powerful hop aroma full of juniper shrubs and pine needles. It smells better than it tastes, but after a while you start to dig the flavor as well. A pretty good IPA. Thanks BuckeyeBoy for sharing this one!

12oz bottle. Pours a slighly cloudy llight amber color with a med white head. Aroma is pine and orange/citrus rind. Flavor is also full of pine and citrus, with a slight amount of balancing malt. Good dose of bitterness. I really enjoyed this beer. Highly recommended.
