As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.
Big strong beer and body, strong malt notes play well against the resinous quality of the hops, not my favorite ipa jagross (5) - - DEC 30, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2017 Cool bottle. Pours deep gold, medium rocky head. Heavier body with citrus and floral overtones. Malty finish. Bullit (4879) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2017
Bottle from Village Beer Merchants. Caramel, flowery, citric. Not fresh anymore. Zeswaft (1788) - Edmonds, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2017
Bomber. Aroma is nothing but body odor. Pungent. Flavor is heavy b.o. and pine. A little citrus on the finish. High bitterness. Light body. So so. MNAle (250) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2017
Pine with citrus aroma. Amber, slightly hazy, with off-white creamy head. Lots of sticky, stringy lacing. Good malt body. Bitter pine hit on the initial taste, piney & citrus hops flavor throughout, with a quite bitter finish, lingering into an aftertaste. Excellent example of the bitter hops of a west coast IPA.

Pours up a slightly hazy golden amber color, With a nice looking frothy white head. Earthy-pine-citrus aromas. Taste has a lot of citrus like grapefruit. Clean drinking with a light sweet honey malt body. Long bittersweet finish. freekyp (2498) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2017
Grapefruit bomb! Big juicy northwest hops deliver plenty of citrus and a bit of rind. Hazy amber pour with a thin white head. Nice fruity fade, bitter at first, but evens out quickly. jssip (12) - Missoula, Montana, USA - SEP 8, 2017
GRAPEFRUIT. The aroma and flavor. A beer worth traveling out of state for! During a blind taste test of 6 greater Portland area (bottled) ipas, it won hands down - with all six of us. drsandman (1692) - New York, USA - AUG 25, 2017
Aroma is pine, citrus, bread, pale malt, rind. Flavor is citrus, rind, earth, bready malt, pine. Med bodied, west coast IPA s_r (151) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2017
Robe ambrée avec un col mousseux qui tend à disparaitre. Nez assez faible, note de noisette et d’agrume. En bouche le caractère malté oeuvre en amorce pour finir sur une douce amertume. Manque de note fruité à mon goût.
