Cloudy orange pour. White head. Little lacing. Big hop aroma. Slight diacetyl. Taste is some malt, but watered down.

jnkor (477) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Cask conditioned, at brewpub. Aroma was a bit musty, and light I think due to nitro. Appearance was a bit dark and head did not linger. Taste was hoppy and sweet, but not overpowering. Nothing much from cask. Palate was awful, it lacked carbonation unfortunately, will update when I get a good one.

Draft @ CCB Brewpub.
Dorée, col blanc.
Arôme bouquet houblonné modéré, grains malté en rétro et restant un peu dominant, retrouve qcq notes tropicales.
Palais est léger houblonné, pointe agrumes, fin biscuité mat, touche de fruit de la passion, et fine note épicée sur la fin.

A golden ipa with a thin white head. In aroma, beautiful sweet fruity biscuit malt with citrusy pungent floral hops, citrus pulp, clover, very nice. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with loads of citrusy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light perfumy notes, very nice. On tap at Cigar city Brewpub.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Solid, easy drinking session IPA that doesn’t have overly bitter notes due to the lack of malts, and very little off flavors. Nothing spectacular here but worth drinking.

PorterPounder (8313) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Tampa, FL - on tap at the brewpub. Sparkling light copper pour with a light soapy snow white head. Nice legs of lace. Fresh spruce aroma, some pleasant cat uriny tanginess. Solid light citrus backbone, hints of mango fruitiness, a dash of spearmint. Nice thick mouthfeel with a lot of spritz for a session.

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2015
Draft at the brewpub. Clear amber with a short white head. Prototypical sharp American hop pine resin and grapefruit aroma, lightly toasty but mostly transparent malt, no fermentation effects leaves the aroma hop-forward and clean. Medium bodied, medium to light sweetness with strong bitterness. The fullness suits the flavor balance well, it’s not stark or over-fermented like so many other Session IPA. Unfortunately for me, the hop character is not something I enjoy, what with the strong resin, pine needle and nutty grapefruit notes that so many American beer drinkers enjoy.
