COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
LARRY was originally brewed this summer for the Publick House’s Hop Head Throwdown. David -- owner of the Publick House -- It was such a success in growlers here and at the Publick House, that we brewed another batch to go to speciality accounts. We’ll be putting it in 22’s in March 85 IBUs 5-hops (Simcoe, Magnum, Amarillo, Cascade, Chinook)

12oz into a tulip. Firm head summons a good beer as it leaves no holes and surrounds the glass with foam. Dissapates quickly and leave a thin film throughout. Tatse is hoppy and up front, just how a brew of this type should be. Organic apple, a mixed bag of citurs with a primary resident being grapefruity. This is a very flavourful brew and keeps one coming back for more. Nicely done here. Color is a meduim bodied orange with bronze and some caramel.

Bomber from Half Time. Pours hazy light amber with a 1 finger creamy/bubbly near-white head. Lots of fruity hop over a slightly roasted malt backbone. Near full in body. Lots of sweet caramel with lots of fruity/floral hop. I’d say this one is toward sweet rather than dry, but it’s a close call. It’s bitter, but not the harsh NW bitter. So flavorful. They did not skimp on ingredients. It’s almost chewy.

Bottle:   Amberish, slight haze, large frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft sweet hoppy nose, very pale citrus peel, overall somewhat musty and a little aged.   Hoppy, yet not real bitter, and not terribly sweet either.   Seems more of an IPA that perhaps has a bit more malt forward.   This reminds me very much of an IIPA that has been around for a while.   No idea on age of this, but seems a bit aged.   Its not broken, but it has this certain basement/mustiness that makes me think its got some time on it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Hops seem to slowly come forward towards the finish.   Not a real bruiser, but respectable in its own right.   Not real bright, but also not dull.   Yeah, as this finish it becomes a little more biting.   Could use a bit more citrus sweetness and then this would be stellar.   Fairly tasty otherwise.   Thanks Jeff!

another big thanks to davey101 for this guy. From a 22 oz bottle pours a darker orange color with a thicker white head that leaves slowly . The smell is of citrus and malt and pine. Taste is good hoppy on the front but finishes very sweet and carmely. This is an over all good balanced beer. I can see why they bottled this one I’m sure it was a huge hit.

22 oz bottle shared in line at DLD by Roonai/Deyholla. Thanks! Pours a nice glowing darker orange hue, solid glow with some hop haze, a bigger offwhite near tan head sits atop, laces well, stays decent sized overall. Aromas are a melange of citrus, grapefruit, lemons, moving into some sweet malts that really seem to stick, a bit much. Some toffee, biscuits, caramel. More florals and grass. Initial is medium bodied, maybe a touch heavier with a big fruity and citrus front, dry hops and florals mesh into lemons, grapefruits, and some melon. Grass and faint pine move into a fairly sweet malt dominated middle. Toffee, biscuits, caramel, bread dough, and toast. Finish is dry with lingering citrus hops but also trailing sweet malts. Not my favorite DIPA, it is fairly sweet, but it is well made enough.

Aroma is flowery hops; pale malts. Really like an extra pale ale. Hops are sweet and kinda flowery. The appearance is icy lace, good head. Clear orange; lace makes it. The flavor is pale and flowery. A little chlorine. Nice and a little yeasty on the back end. The palate is about average; a little fizzy. Similar to Stone’s Ruination in some ways. Very pale and very solid.

crazyvin (1906) - New York, USA - APR 15, 2011
Poured a nice orange amber hue with a thick white head that faded to a nice coating. Lace was nice. Aroma had a nice caramel malt base and the hops give it hints of citrus, soap and pine. Flavor was initially sweet, not cloying, and the hops give it a nice bite. Hops seemed to be strong on the citrus side of things but the pine really came through in the finish. Medium bodied but nice brew.
