pablo951 (462) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Had it out of a bottle, poured well with a yellow head and long lasting lacing evenly around the glass. Notes of Caramell and malts lives up to its name heavy-handed.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
Bouteille 12oz, courtoisie de Hogtownharry ou Blankboy. De couleur ambrée-cuivrée et claire. Nez de houblon résineux, légèrement floral et aux notes citriques (pamplemousses) et herbeuses, fruité (agrumes, traces d’abricots) et malté de grains sucrés avec des notes caramel doux. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture moyennement crémeuse et aux petites notes aqueuses. Goût amer de houblon floral, légèrement citrique et aux notes terreuses (qui dure toute la gorgée avec une amertume qui diminue légèrement au fil de la gorgée) avec un goût fruité (agrumes, traces d’abricots et de mangue) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt sucrés avec des notes de caramel sucré puis en finale, le houblon reprend le dessus en étant plus sec, plus herbeux, et moyennement résineux. Post-goût long et un peu sec, amer de houblon moyennement résineux et herbeux avec des notes citriques ainsi qu’avec un léger goût fruité (zest d’agrumes).

jgb9348 (4818) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Lot #2612 (Cluster - Field #1): Slightly hazy copper coloured body with an amber glow and a light ruby shine and a centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pine, resin and a bit of pineapple with some good malt note and a hint of nuts. Medium-bodied; Assertive resinous and syrupy feel with a lot of pine, pineapple, honey and a bit of earthy flavours. Aftertaste shows some nice hoppy flavours with a bit of syrup and honey, a little earth and a good balance of hops and malt - more like a traditional IPA and not like a West Coast IPA at all. Overall, a nice beer and definitely worth trying if you can find it - not overloaded with hops, but a good balance for sure and nice to sample. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Half Time in Poughkeepsie, New York on 26-December-2012 for US$2.79 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 19-January-2013.

Very flavorful and fruity ipa. Good amount of hops to make it bitter. Really like this one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maltser85 (307) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - DEC 29, 2012
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. This was the 2012 Lot 2512 Willamette Wet Hopped IPA. In the glass it was a slightly hazy or,ange amber colored beer with a decent off white 1 finger head. The nose was a slightly generic hop nose with a definite distinct freshness to it. Hop hits right at the front of the tongues, moves into the middle of the palate. Comes with a definite Spicy, Hoppy crispness with the bitter hop flavor hitting in the middle of the tongue finishing with a nice earthy hop/sweet malt flavor. Decent balance to this beer. The wet hop almost seems to become part of the mouthfeel, almost like it makes it more syrupy, very interesting. This was a 6.4% ABV beer. It came with a nice cap, label and packaging. I had it earlier this fall. I am just now transcribing my tasting notes.

ESBob (358) - Indiana, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On Tap. 2012 Varietal. Pours a deeper amber with frothy white head. Hops and grapefruit aroma. Taste is more of the same with a nice mixture of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Slightly bitter finish.

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Orange pour with medium light tan head. Aroma is rather sweet, caramel and biscuit with citrus. Taste leans more toward bitter hoppiness. An average IPA, but not one of my favorites.

Lot # 2642 - Crystal. On tap at Pony with James, Streets, Andy & Jenn 10/31/2012. Sweet wet hop aroma, grainy malt upfront and sweeter hops going down - fresh finish. Not very bitter at all. Doesn’t stand out but not bad.

Theydon_Bois (9725) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Tap at Kasey’s Tavern, Chicago - 03/11/12. No info on the vintage/variety. Clear golden/amber with a thin off white head. Good lacing develops. Hops and pines shoot straight up your hooter with tropical fruit tones as back up. Tastes of bitter grapefruit, mango, hops, pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation leading to a bitter finish. Absoulte belter of an IPA!
