[bottle] Creamy and fruity hops aroma with tropical fruit and a bit of pine. Clear light bronze under a dense, off-white foam. Dry and moderately bitter taste that is biscuity and with plenty of bitter grapefruit peel hops. Also some apricot/peach notes. Light body, medium to high carbonation plays off the dry feel to make this very hoppy beer pretty refreshing, lingering grapefruit pith bitterness in the finish.

Bottle(s) at Harbor Lounge in P-town. Amber orange pour. Flowery hop aroma. Fruity and floral hop flavors. Nice dry finish. Mildly bitter. Pretty typical East Coast IPA.

UDBeernut (1600) - Near Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle from Albany, best before 2/23/13. Pours golden amber capped by a slight cream colored head that quickly reduces to a light lacing cap. Addition amounts of lacing coat my glass. Nose of cracker, flowers, and resin. A solid malt body holds together the bitterness well. Hop flavor is a bit muddled and takes a back seat to the overall malt and bitterness. Body is medium but feels a bit thin at times.

freeofthoughts (646) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Tap pours golden yellow with white foam. The aroma is light floral fruity hops and golden malts. The flavor is grainy pale malt, maybe a touch of pilsner with a bold golden bittering resinous dried flower and light orange citrus hopped kick. Not a lot of depth but a decent brew.

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Light floral aroma, like a spring meadow or some poetic crap. Slightly hazy deep orange. Bluntly bitter taste, sweet mango kick on finish. Ringing yet almost sessionable. Old school bitter-type IPA.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Nikki’s Liquors, Providence. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of spicy, herbal hops with a toffee malt backbone. The taste is citrus, tea, pale caramel malts. Lemon finish. Medium bodied. Interesting, different, pretty good.

CamdenD (1059) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 20, 2012
Very drinkable IPA. Floral hops but the bittering is mild. The Larry IPA was a nice surprise, this one is certainly competent and above average.

sailracer (389) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Tap. A pale IPA with a medium head. It doesn’t have quite the same great hop aroma as the Wachusett Larry IPA. It is kind of like its little brother- a little less hops, a little less bitterness, which makes for a very drinkable IPA.

BVery (5944) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from Bert’s Better Beers in Hooksett, NH. Orange-yellow pour with a white head. Floral hop nose - very nice. Moderate palate, soft carbonation. Taste is an easy-drinking floral hop - good character but low on bitterness. Nice everyday beer.

matalec1984 (115) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Pours a deep gold with a red hue white head with solid lacing. Aroma seems minimal, some citrus and floral notes are present Flavor is nice slightly doughy, but a solid hop flavor...very bright with lots of citrus notes almost a passion fruit flavor nice aftertaste and easy to drink
