ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 28, 2013
On tap. Pours a golden copper in color with an off-white head that stuck around and left lace. Bold citrus hop aroma with some floral and malt notes mixed in. Big citrus hop flavor with a bit floral as well. Nice toasty, biscuit, caramel malt backbone that falls short of balancing it out. Body is medium and well carbonated.

Ericular (659) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Hazy orange, great lasting head. Aroma sweeter. Taste not as sweet as expected. Sweet briefly, then into a moderate bitterness with a nice bready malt balance. Not bad.

Some citrius, bit of bitter. Very light, too light for my taste. Below average ipa.

PotjeBier (1732) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2013
12 oz bottle from De Bierkoning @ home (bottled 1 Feb. 2013). Clear amber color. Off white head with short retention. Aroma upon opening the bottle: resinous & cirussy, but only shortly so. In the glass there’s earthy hops, some roast/toast and a hint of tropical fruit. Retronasal there’s sweet fruit, earthy hops, herbal. Flavor is (strangely enough) rather sweet but with a decent bitterness for balance. Body is medium. Finish is long and rather bitter. Interesting interpretation of the style, but actually quite nice.

markducommun (224) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
A - Citrusy nose, also a surprising amount of malt and sweetness in the bouquet A - Nice golden, color; minimal head, disappears quickly T - More citric bitterness then suggested by the nose, almost tangy P - Thin body, lively carbonation, slightly oily finish O - Well done, fairly simple IPA, quite tasty. Perhaps a bit less complex than a truly spectacular IPA. 12oz bottle.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Medium copper tone with a thin top. Very nice middle of the road American pale ale example, tangy and citric, another candidate for a go-to daily quaff. (#5100, 7/2/2013)
