Rumor has it this beer is the favorite of a former U.S. President. An IPA with big hops bitterness bumping against three varieties of 2 row barley malt goodness. A fan favorite.

Bottle from Guess Who? Amber pour with a small head. The nose is pretty much non-existent. The absence of aroma. Some caramel and melon if I’m being charitable. The taste has some light pine and lemon hop accents. Strong caramelised orange. Caramel malt body. Medium body, soft carbonation. Tastes old. Still, worse than average for the style.

[Bottle] Pours a bright orange color with a large white head. Mildly hoppy aroma is grassy and citrusy. More maltiness than expected in the nose. Muddled caramel and citrus flavors abound. Not as thin as some of their other offerings. Hints of skunk and alcohol. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Aroma:Light grapefruit and very light spicy hop character pairs with cereal malts; definitely a bit low-key compared to some of the premier IPAs. Appearance: Turbid medium copper body with a frothy light tan head that settles into an ever-present film. Flavor: Cereal and spice up front with some grapefruit joining shortly thereafter; the cereal is quite sweet, like Corn Puffs or Honey Smacks. The finish does dry up a little. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Just not a very good IPA.

Light golden with a white head. Plenty of pine hop aroma, light body, and balanced bitterness. Decent IPA.

ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2013
FROM NOTES: July 16, ’12 Poured on draft at The Bulldog-Jackson into a pint glass. A: Very Mild citrus and grass notes. Hints of pale malt and caramel. Very underwhelming nose for an IPA. A: Pours an orange-copper with a finger of head that had good retention and left a bit of lacing. T: Malt up front with citrusy hops letting their presence be known mid taste. Finished with a spicy hop note. P: Medium body, moderate carbonation. O: In a word, pedestrian. Not bad, not great, not memorable, but drinkable and sessionable.

onceblind (9430) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Clear amber/copper with a permanent thin white foamy head. The aroma is a bit dank and floral with a bit of Anaheim peppers and semi roasty earthy caramel malt. The taste is floral and grassy with a big hop bitterness and mild dry earthy malt finish.

brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 14, 2013
On tap @ GABF. Amber pour with a white head. Aroma is really, really grassy. Toasted bread, water, pine, and caramel. A bit of cardboard, too. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, bread, and toast. Bitter pine, grass, and grain husk. Light floral and citrus hops, water, and cardboard.

Had at a pizza place in Fayetteville on tap. Meh. Decent ipa with some grapefruit and citrus. Medium to light bodied. Decent.
