oobawa (1416) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Pretty, but that’s about as positive as I can get. Starts off with a pleasant biscuity malt sweetness, then transitions into a bitter, medicinal finish strong in IBUs but lacking in any other positive hop attributes--no citrus, weed, or piney fun, just a steady, flat, basic bitter meanness. Heavy-handed and dull, overhopped and underdeveloped.

chinchill (5025) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2014
On tap at the brewery. IBU - 95; ABV = 6.3%.. Clear, amber body; good head and excellent. sticky lacing. Aroma:herbal-floral hops with toffee and hints of fruits and baked bread. Flavor: A bit malty for style despite a (nea?) normal hop load. Hints of toffee and baked fruits. Bitterness seems way lower than the listed IBU of 95 suggests. O: a relatively malty, Eastern IPA.

Itzjerm (2869) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2017 2017 Rating Nose is creamy and malt. Flavor is the same with strong bitterness. Very basic IPA. Flavors are basic. Strong sweet malt and biscuit flavor. Lasting head. 2014 Rating 3.9 A very nice yeasty hoppy citrus ipa. Light bitter very enjoyable. Sweet build bitter end. Fading head.

nearbeer (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pint on tap. Copper with a bit of bubbles. Aroma is popcorn, oxidized apple and dark toasted walnut. Taste is roasted pecan with the pith, old apple, toffee and a touch of buttered popcorn and dry grass. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and is really out of whack as far as the typical balancing act, but is neither too dry nor too sweet. Below average taste for any style, and a pretty awful example of an IPA, whether its English or American.

Nero55 (936) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Draft. Deep copper with medium white head and nice lacing. Aroma of citrus (lemon) and caramel. Light body with disappointing hop bitterness based on aroma, caramel notes, and a slight bitter finish.

JHeath99 (1678) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a dark gold with a thin layer of cream colored head. Aroma of pine and slightly floral hops. Taste of hops and not much else.

drowland (8760) - Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2014
2/8/14. On tap at Steel Magnolia’s. I was pleasantly surprised to find a rating there. Golden orange pour with a decent khaki head. Mildly fruity aroma, some breadiness, and I’m definitely getting Brett. Enjoyable, but not sure if intended? Okay flavor, not bitter, not very hoppy, mild fruitiness, Brett again. Not bad.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Draft. This is one of those IPAs that comes off a bit too malty for my like that actually has a butter component to it. Taste had some flower and citrus notes, with a buttery maltiness. Not an infection buttery, just a heavy malt base that completely outweighs the hops.

3.4
Dogbrick (13026) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2013
On draught at Taco Mamacita. The beer pours a hazed orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character and grapefruit and toasted malt flavors. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

jhgrantjr (473) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2012
On tap at Taco Mamacita in Chattanooga, TN. Pours a hazy orange color with little or now head. Has a slight hoppy aroma and slight citrus. A sweeter IPA with a bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
