A West Coast style IPA, the Professor is golden and sports a large frothy white head. Hops leap out of the glass, citrus, apricot, and herbal notes define this brew. There is enough malty body to keep you coming back for more.

Had it our of a bottle. Pours a dark copper hue, big foamy fellow head, and a a dank smell. Malty hop taste with a hint of canned apricot, its ok, but it does not taste like a West Coast IPA.

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear amber hue with a frothy off white to orangish head. Aroma of pine, alcohol and citrus hops. Well hopped taste with a bitter finish.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a typically carbonated transparent orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was mild hop. The mildly vinous crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly vinous and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Pours the color of an orangutan. Cloudy with white fluffy head. Slight lacing. Aroma is fruity and citrus hops. Flavor is floral with citrus, some pine and light spiciness. Moderate bitterness. Decent malt to balance it out. I like it.

12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. This one is from Dumpster Box No. 1. The pour is a darker orange gold color with a big frothy white head and a good bit of lace as it falls to a thick collared film. The aroma is something else. There is a fruity sweetness to it that I find strange. A light pine exists on the back end and there is some leafy greens there as well. It's different, but not that great. The flavor is metallurgical up front and it has a really strange sweetness. There is a ton of grain all throughout this one. It's metallic on the finish for sure. The mouth feel is awful. It's thin and light with minimal carbonation and a lingeringly metallic finish. It's quickly dissipating but just not good. Blah ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebone1988 (1474) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20, out of Dumpster Day box #1. Aroma is pine, slight tropical fruit, somehow bready, malt. Appearance is amber golden, n white head, but clear. Taste is bad. Malt, metallic, tons of bread, some pine, not real sweet. Mouthfeel is light carbonation, medium body, this is a mess, bready aftertaste. Overall, this is awful.

Wonderful hop aroma, nice dark rust pour. Taste is a little bland after the nose is so inviting. Palate is medium bodied, good carbonation. Overall a decent ipa, not great, drinks more like a session ipa. Would like to try it on tap.

355ml bottle. Amber pour, Aroma is a mix of nuttiness and dank citrus, odd combo. Falvor is sweeter, apricot and peach flavor, herb, some spice. Okay.
