hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2014
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a golden color with a smaller sized white head. Floral hops, citrus, pine, and some fruitiness. Nice for a low alcohol beer.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Draft at Ginger Man. A little rough around the edges, but still enjoyable. Pours clear gold with a white head. Big fresh grassy dank hops, with moderate bitterness, zero malt character, and a quick hoppy finish. A little thin as well. Comes across a little to over the top for a beer this small. I love me some session IPAs, but the point is to make them drinkable. Not that I wasn’t able to finish the pint I ordered, but I certainly wasn’t left wanting another.

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Lawn clipping dry hop rawness, ugh. Garlic, pine resin, onions, leafy greens. All pale malt, apparently. Husky coarse malt texture, little to no malt flavor, lean body bordering on astringent. Off-dry. Mild flavor but presents a powerfully raw hop odor, nose-in-bag hop quality. An example of dry hopping gone wrong. From tap at Porter Beer Bar in Atlanta.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2014
On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s. Vibrant floral-piney hop bouquet, spicy with resin and a little dankness. Light golden clear with light hops, topped with thin white lacing head. Medium body with high carbonation. Starts dry with carbonic acidity, bit floral-spicy hop flavor and pale malt notes. Carbonic bite. Finish is hoppy with medium-high lasting bitterness. Nice session.

pilgrimoutlaw (761) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2014
On tap at TJs. Pours pale gold with soapy head. Citrus, floral, tropical fruits, pine, earth. Moderately sweet and bitter. Thin, creamy body. Good session ale.

Beerathon (1108) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2014
I love Victory, but found this to be watered down mess. Malt characteristics are nearly nonexistent and the hops are just okay. I expected more.

rxeight (1222) - Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2014
On draft at the taphouse. Light golden color with minimal head. This beer smells like weed. A bag of dank. Taste has a bit of that but not nearly as strong. Some citrus and grassy hops. Thin body but I guess expected for 4.5%. This is a very good IPA

4.1

egajdzis (5270) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Dark golden color with a medium sized, off white head, nice lacing. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, skunk, tropical fruits. Taste of much of the same, fruity, hoppy, pine, orange, and grapefruit. Reminds me of Carton Boat.

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Small white head with fair retention and lacing. Lightly hazy, gold hued brew. Spicy, citrusy hop nose. Light bodied, nice carbonation level. Lil, fruity, juicy hop flavors. Floral with slight pale malt notes. Fairly dry finish. Decent quaffer. Draft at statelineliquors.

Good stuff. Fresh grapefruit nose and taste. Will look for it again. , ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
