jefcon (1673) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Strong aromas of American IPA -- some citrus, bready malts, and a little pine. Solid IPA.

Pours a half finger of head on a clear straw body. Aroma is clean grains. Taste is nice lemon and grapefruit bitterness. Texture is crisp.

September 26th, 2014 - Devils Backbones Eight Point IPA is a fairly standard entry into a good, crisp IPA. Coming from San Diego I appreciated the emphasis on the grapefruit notes without going overboard on the IBUs. The smell was harder to get, since this was consumed straight from the bottle (over board games).

GenDV138 (6269) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2016
16 oz pour on draft at Hilton McLean Tysons Corners Hrth Bar. Clear golden orange with off-white head. Aromas of malt, biscuit, floral notes. Tastes of floral notes, biscuit, aged hops, bitter wheat. Medium body with a dry finish. Tastes a bit old or like some macro lager got mixed in.

ACHops (1427) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2016
12 oz longneck @ Tri-Cities Airport. Clear medium amber with thin white head. Aroma is toasted caramel malt, big earthy herbal hops. Taste is dark roasty caramel malt; bitter grassy hops. Lingers bitter on the finish. Old school IPA, a bit too malt dominate for my taste, not bad for what it is.

ComradeK (1158) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2016
Draught at Brasserie Brightwell, Easton MD. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. The aroma offers spruce and grapefruit hops, with caramel malt. Spruce hops up front lead into a nicely malty body, with plenty of caramel. Grapefruit hops finish it off. Not the most hoppy IPA Ive had, but its very nicely balanced. Quite satisfying.

sawbuck (646) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2016
05-02-16 bottle date so an older sample. Mild aroma of pine and citrus. Nice deep golden color with a white head. Rich sweet malt up front. Carmel really comes though. Resin, pine bitterness balances nicely. Medium mouthfeel. Finish is a nice balance of sweet and bitter. Nice. Looking forward to a fresh sample.

From a can. Hazy golden. Plenty of head. Decent IPA. A little too bitter to me.

italianjohn (2929) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Clear golden pour with a thin white head and light lacing .... aroma of citrusy hops and light floral hops with caramel malts .... taste has a citrusy and floral hop ... think rindy grapefruit and floral ... light pine .... has some dry hopped backbone and caramel malts ... finish is dry and floral with citrusy and piney hops lingering slightly.... very average and boring

GolfGuy (7) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2016 does not count
Pour from bottle was cloudy amber with minimal head. Aroma of citrus and floral. Initial taste was of grapefruit followed by pine and tar. The pine and tar taste lingers. An OK IPA, but bitter aftertaste makes it a one drink only.

coldbrewky (1721) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2016
BTLs Nomads come thru again. Up front hops in nose and body overpower the firepit smoke. For some reason the 60 ibus in this critter seem to outdo a recently rated 70 ibu brew. Maybe its just me. Moderate body. lingering finish.
