22oz bottle from Binny’s Plainfield. Pours a hazed copper colored body with an inch thick, dense and foamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweet oranges and caramels with a touch of bready toast. Some florals and a light dull pine. Flavor is similar. Bready caramels with sweet oranges, dull pines, and florals. Touches of toast towards the end as this finishes bitter with dull pines and citruses before this dries and leaves a lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty lifeless IPA that didn’t taste very fresh. Eh...

The aroma is citrus and pine with malt and popcorn. The appearance is hazy amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall not fantastic

Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
A hazed amber IPA with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, biscuit malt over fragrant resinous hops, grassy and smooth, caramel. In mouth, nice grassy malt with floral British hops, nice and smooth, not over the top. On tap at Summer Winter Marriott Burlington MA, for 6.50$, August 3 2012.

22oz bomber pours deep gold body with a faint haze and it supports a fluffy tan head. The mild aroma offers up sweet malts and thin snippets of lemony to grapefruit like citrus notes. The taste begins with a pretty good dash of lemon mixed with grapefruit and getting firmly bitter toward midway. As this heads to the finish some sweet malts and earthy green tea join in the fun. I’m really liking this style IPA. It is a little earthy tea like (Jasmine tea maybe) and it is working great.

Smells like a mixed bag of pellet hops, with no real discernable flavors like citrus or pine to remark on. Taste is more of the same, a totally unremarkable but easy to drink pale ale that doesn’t really merit the IPA tag. I usually like Clown Shoes quite a bit but this is just forgettable.

rocbyter (2124) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Moderate fresh citrus hop aroma. Clear orange color with a large white head. Moderate bitter beginning that fades in the finish. Light palate.

sseb69 (1909) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2012
Bouteille 22 oz. Achetée au IGA de Potsdam, NY. Couleur ambrée, mousse crémeuse blanche. Arôme d’agrumes houblonneux, citrus, malt. En bouche, douce, malt et houblons. Pas très amère, une IPA accessible mais très bonne.

I don’t remember a single thing about this one -- it was sampled late in the day at the 2012 Lansdale Beer Fest.
