Keg at Hamilton’s Tavern, SD, 12/11/14. Golden amber with a decent off white covering. Nose is juicy citric peel, light pine, bitter orange, grapefruit. Taste comprises pine, orange pith, grapefruit, straw. Medium body, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close. Decent IPA.

On tap at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, a little pine and some biscuity / crackery malts. Flavour brings out stale wood chips, some floral notes, a bit of pine, and more stale wood. Seems a bit off - as in the aforementioned stale wood quality. Still drinkable and solid, but something doesn’t quite work.

Golden, slightly hazy. Really spicy hop nose - beauty. Light wood and a rounded hop character, with more spices and a pomegranate hop note. I revisited this a couple of times over the CBC cause it was damn fine.

brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 30, 2013
On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Clear golden pour with a white head. Big grapefruit and pine aromas. Light dough, grass, orange, and maybe a hint of pineapple. Bitter flavor of grapefruit rind, pine, and grass. Light pineapple, some orange, and a touch of dough and bread.

3.9
bhensonb (15969) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours light amber with a creamy beige head. Strong citrus/resin aroma. Med body. Sweet caramel with enough resin and perhaps citrus to start a slow hop burn. Gets a little earthy with time. Finishes dryish and hoppy - tho not bitingly bitter. Nice IPA.

3.4
DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/16/15] Draught at Cameron’s Inn in Half Moon Bay. Clear deep golden. “Green” hops aroma, kinda dank and leafy. Hoppy flavor, “green”, with pretty strong bitterness and an alcoholic note. Medium-bodied.

Tmoney99 (15126) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid smooth resin and citrus hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew.

3.8
Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Draft at Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear pale golden color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Sticky hop aroma, lots of pine and resin. The taste is very bitter pine and resin hops with some pale malts in there. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

3.9
Dogbrick (14316) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Sample at Über Tavern. The beer pours a clear yellow-gold color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grapefruit, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, bready malt and pine. The finish is hoppy with a lingering zesty zitrus aftertaste. Pretty good overall, glad they brought this one back.
