22. Pours a hazy burnished dark amber with a dense and pillowy whitish head and lots of eggy lace. Mild piney nose--clean and present, but not the most forceful aromatics around. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and pine on the mid palate. I’ve had this beer from 500 breweries by now, but it’s always a pleasure to drink when it’s made this well with good fresh ingredients. No revelations here, but a worthy drinker.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The beer pours honey golden and is hazy. A fluffy off white head is nice and leaves sticky lacing. I smell pine and caramel. Pine and floral hops are tasted and they leave a long lasting dry bitterness for an after taste. But soon that after taste fades and it becomes very clean. I also taste yeast and pale malts. Fruit is tasted and it is both citrus and tropical. Despite all of the hop notes this is tilted toward sweetness and the malts are in front. This is an interesting beer. It is very tasty but also very subtle. Plenty of good stuff to satisfy the serious beer geek but not so much to put off the novice.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle:   Orangish in color, a bit hazy, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Dank hoppy aroma, and yeah, I mean dank.   Somewhat of a soft earthy/soily like hop start, not too bitter, moderate sweetness.   Seems oily but without being too biting.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering hops, a bit citrusy at times.   Comes across as a solid example and is well made for the style.

Thanks to gregwilsonstl for sharing this one. Pours hazy golden orange with an off-white head. The aroma has tropical fruits, modestly sweet malt, orange, pineapple and a bit of pine. It has a medium husky rough body with gentle abrasive carbonation. The flavor starts with pine, grapefruit zest, dry malt and mild alcohol. The finish is dry, hoppy, resiny and has lots of grapefruit zest. Really nicely made IPA.

jgb9348 (6482) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2017
A nice slightly hazy golden and light copper coloured body with a small three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, grass and light malt. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour with toffee, caramelised sugar, grains and earth all noticeable and only a touch of bitterness, some sweetness from honey and caramel and a little earth on the taail end. Aftertaste is rich from the malt, showing some alcohol bitterness and a touch of grain, but no real hop flavours at all. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from The Liquor Collection in Honolulu, O’ahu, Hawaii on 30-December-2015 for US$2,25 sampled on the train from Washington to New York on 01-December-2016.
