COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This One Time at Band Camp is our Double IPA with an Evil Genius twist - we never use the same blend of hops twice! We start with a classic American DIPA recipe, then cut back on the bittering hops by adding over 75% of the hops post fermentation. This method helps retain their juicy, resinous, aromatic qualities, allowing the differences in the hop varieties to really stand out. Each time we brew this beer, we will dry hop it with a different blend of hops - sometimes with classic American hops, sometimes with rare and expensive New Zealand or Australian hops, and sometimes with exciting, brand new varieties of hops.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7449) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-apricot color with a large foamy orange-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was malty with a sour caramel note, yeast, pine, orange and was somewhat off. The flavor was sweet, tangy and yeasty with mild bitterness, pine and vague fruity hops. Medium length finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Ok.

BillWyce (1057) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2016
1/28/16 version. Pours lightly hazy golden color with a 1-finger white head. Aroma is mild for a DIPA- citrusy, and maybe a touch of pine. Body is medium and lightly oily. Finish is mild, with a light dryness. Flavor of resiny hops, with a note of citrus underneath that lingers at the back.

on tap at Craftys in Northeast Phila - pale yellow. Slight floral aroma. Decent hop flavor. These guys deserve an award for "best beer names!"

jsporrer (882) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a light golden amber with a thin white ring. Light carbonation. Oddly sweet candy corn and caramel toffee aroma. Medium body. Taste is semi-dry with a funky bready flavor. Not refreshing or enjoyable. Nothing like I had expected.

PhillyCraft (6760) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Sample On tap at Mile, pours clearish golden with not much head. Lots of carbonation. Smell and flavor are perfume, banana, candy sugar, marshmallow, and other cloyingly sweet notes. Theres some bitterness but the hops arent noticeable or taste very old/oxidized.

callmemickey (4526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Dark golden body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Light citrus, florals, and grainy malt. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light sweetness, rounded finish with mild bitterness. Not great.

EithCubes (5751) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle. Blah nose slightly vegetal, resinous. Pours deep, bright, clear orange with a short off-white head. Sweet taste with orange and tangerine, but stronger cookie, cracker, dough, eventually pulling through with juice, lemon, even a hint of Concord grape. Light bitterness enough to keep the medium sweetness in check, nothing extreme at this point. A little more melon and kiwi as I go, faint paper, but those are rounding agents compared to the delicious cookie. Fullish body but not fat (actually somewhat silky), alcohol well tamed, easy-going and quick-drinking for something of its size, and without pretension. Would gladly buy again. [2016.03.04: 3.4]
