22. Pours crystal clear bright burnished coppery amber. Dense fluffy white head that sticks around for a while, if not forever. Mild orange peel nose with toast and caramel mixed in. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and oranges again on the mid palate. Mild resiny finish. Not very creative or lively, but well made and flavorful enough. Decently refreshing.

Thanks to Hayduke for this one. Shared via Facebook chat with Ron’s brother Rick. Pour is hazy effervescent golden brown. A small white head. Aroma is soft with tart hops and a hint of spice. Flavor begins with pink grapefruit which is a new taste for me. VERY bitter on the front. After a bit of warming that subsided somewhat and some tangerine and other citrus fruit showed. There was very little sweetness, especially at first. The tangerine helped but balance was never achieved. There was a unique hop mixture used which made for a fun beer to sample.

Bottle: Pours a transparent amber bronze with a stringy-lacing froth of khaki head. Has a sweet lightly toasted caramel and pale malty nose with some fresh resiny grapefruity hoppy notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet light doughy malty flavor with a fresh piny hoppy balance before a clean bittersweet finish. A fresh and very drinkable IPA.

Glowing clear amber color/ fleeting off white head. Mild grassy, cat spray, spicy alcohol aromas. medium bodied. Bitter pine hop flavors with mild caramel, dry cardboard, alcohol. not exactly spotless.

Grapefruit and lemon peel bouquet. Clear golden, medium yellow head. Tastes as it smells, but with the hops less prevalent and with a light maltiness to balance it out. Not bitter and barely an IPA, but pretty nice.

Draft at Cafe Amsterdam. Dark orange with a creamy head. Rich with a woodsy citric bite. Tangy finish. Makes me smack my lips. (#3957, 8/1/2010)

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Clear golden, moderate frothy white head, sparce lacing, light carbonation.   Astringent nose of hops and caustic biscuit maltiness.   Full Sail seems to have the same aroma for mos of their IPAs, and it never sits well with me.   Acrid hops and the aformentioned caustic biscuit like malt flavor.   The bitterness from this beer doesn’t come from the hops.   Seems grainy in a medicinal or chemical cleaner sense.   Don’t get me wrong, its not awful, but its not on my list of ever planning to drink again.   Also seems more of a Pale than an IPA, or at least 3/4 IPA.   Meh...

Super crisp, clear orange coloured body with a very thin, fast-dying white head. Aroma of fresh hops, alcohol, malt, light apricots and TONS of metal and blood - not very nice smelling. Medium-bodied; Very assertive metal and strong alcohol flavours showing up front with some hops afterwards and a touch of dry bitterness at the end. Aftertaste shows a lot of metal, funky malt finishes and a bunch of bitter raisin/apricot flavours. Overall, not so great - the bitterness and off tastes override the hoppiness and the fruit that is picked up between the funky smells and the lingering aftertaste. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 01-July-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 02-September-2010.

A bit of hops in the aroma. Looks nice. This isn’t too balanced at all. The hops are bitter but also metallic. Disappointed with this one.

Cybercat (6505) - Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Aroma is hoppy and somewhat yeasty - not strong, but still promising. It pours a clear yellow amber with a fluffy white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Flavor is strongly hoppy with hints of grapefruit and evergreen. Texture is smooth with a lively tingle that persists in the mouth after the brewski has headed downstairs.
