mambossa (336) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2017
Fresh from 2017. Gently hazy gold. Nose of ester-driven hop notes including mango, pineapple, papaya, gentle lemons and tangerine. London yeast twang clashing with Simcoe notes. Flavor has a good deal of pineapple, tangerine, sweet pine, understated passionfruit, and a bit sweet (not as sweet as Chillwave). Seeing as this is fresh, its actually not bad at all. Could use a tad more dryness from an American or Cali ale yeast and a cleaner malt bill.

On tap at the brewpub. About an inch of frothy head. Pretty meh coloring. Decent hop pal or but kinda one dimensional bitter for me.

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours hazy honey amber with a decent white light sandy head and decent lacing. Aroma is too subtle for me, vague citrus notes from the dry hopping. Flavor is much better, bringing a nice balance, more bitter than sweet hops, but placed so well on the palate. It is a lighter beer, but still enjoyed.

TURDFERGUSON (4056) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2013
Tap at Milltown. Confused why they felt that they needed to change the name of this beer (from "The Quitness" ) for the NC market. Im pretty sure anyone with a tv or internet who follows sports even a little bit, knows about Lebron James and how he left Cleveland. Light cloudy/heavy haze orange golden with a thin webby lace. Nose is heavy citrus, light tropical notes, fairly dry, florals, light caramel. Flavor is similar, light to medium bitterness, light boozy finish.

emacgee (4661) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2013
Soft fruity notes and a touch of citrus rind show in the aroma. Very well balanced by bready malt and a touch of toasted grain. A light sweetness in the flavor with a prominent and firm bitterness. Citrus zest is very heavy here with some tropical fruits.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2013
Draft. Now called hop madness in North Carolina. Side note. Had lagunitas Waldo first. This seems a bit weak. It's interesting since it seems sessionable bit at 7.5 its hidden nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Veldrid (120) - Canton, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Had on tap at GLBC. Pours a golden color with decent white head. The aroma is typical of an IPA; very citrus and grapefruit like with some nice floral hops and pine. The taste was the same but it had an awesome bitterness to it that I loved. Really wish they would bottle this.
