KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a murky burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that slowly diminished, reducing to a medium puddled film and medium collar with very good sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a grain malt, floral and grassy hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and a light fruity ester (pineapple I believe). The taste was lightly malty-sweet with a touch of caramel and a good fruity presence from the start, progressing into a slightly bitter hoppy taste with a hint of grapefruit and a seriously bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lingered on the taste buds for a good long while, with the bitter citrus peel taste hitting you right in the back of the throat. Mouthfeel was a few steps beyond light in body and dry in texture with a solid medium carbonation. Overall this is a nice fruity, bitter IPA that I found to be balanced very well, making it a smooth and easy to drink brew...

Bottle, best by 11/2015. Looks a little like a cloudy heffe. Smells like old high gravity lager. Taste is big freakin rude dull hops kick in the face. No freshness in this fer sure. Difficult and medicinal, I swear it has many of those old ice lager malt likker attributes. Cannot enjoy. If it wasnt for the buzz catching effects, I may give up on this one. A big happy BS dull pine turpentine palate wrecker. wew.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber with a medium sized white head. A bit of malt on the nose, a touch of citrus. Medium bodied, citrus, earthy malt and grain. Slow pungent earthy grapefruit into the finish. Nice stuff.

Theydon_Bois (17579) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle in the hotel lobby, RBWG 15, night 2 - 20/02/15. I might have dragged this one down from Asheville? Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is tangerine, bitter orange, straw, melon. Taste comprises orange pith, straw, light bread, melon. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. A pretty basic IPA but drinkable enough.
