Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2006
Cloudy orange body with a small white head. Fruitiness level is above average for that type of beer. The pineapple and tangerine flavours mix well with the floral hops. Not very sweet. Very hoppy with medium bitterness. Alcohol presence felt a bit more than 7%. Plenty of creamy non-caramelized malt. A very nice beer. A testament to the incredible West-Coast beer scene is the fact that this Blue Dot is just another green dot on the West-Cost Hoppy-Beer radar.

bu11zeye (13020) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy orange body with a huge long-lasting off-white head (large bubbles on the outer edges of the head with a dense interior head; quite unique). Aroma of citrus, breadiness, and light pine. Flavor of piney hops and spicy orange peel with a bitter finish.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2006
mirky golden/yellow color with a mediumly laced head, sweet strawberry nose, grapefruit, pretty hoppy with the dull hop burn in the finish, but not overly done, well balanced but still offering a complex flavor arrangement

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Hazy orange. Great-looking fluffy head. Fresh-smelling nose (oranges and yeast). Lively carbonation; rather refreshing. Tasty caramel and crystal malt sweetness. Super spicy, with elements of sweet grass, spruce tips, citrus and pepper. Nice level of bitterness to boot. Great beer.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. One of the most interesting IIPAs Ive tried. Appearance is like that of an unfiltered hefeweizen- pale cloudy straw colored. Huge, hoppy aroma w/ that metallic/acidic nose that you get from some of the HOTD brews. HUGE head. Flavor is complex. A little watered-down. Dont know if I like the interpretaton of the style, but its definitely interesting and worth a try.

(22 oz. bottle via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=2 target=blank>OhioDad, thanks Scott!) Sweet and piney...Pours rather hazy light yellowish-amber. Gets downright cloudy by end of bottle. About one finger of soft white head that mostly stays around. Aroma of pine and grapefruit, maybe a little vanilla, kind of sweet and sour. Mouthfeel kind of soft, smooth. Nice heavy lacing. Flavor is the pine along with malt sweetness and a hint of sour, a bit of grapefruit. Some bitterness overlays which lingers into the aftertaste. Gave me a pretty fair buzz for only a 7% beer.

Columbus 2.0 tasting shared by nolankowal. Poured a very lt brown witha a light yellowishness. Aroma of citrus and a little malt. Maybe a little lemony witte flavor? Definitely quenched my hop thirst in the middle of sours, stouts, and belgians.

harrisoni (18052) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland. Cloudy pale gold. Astringent hop aroma. Extreme hop. Body is quite full due to sedimented yeast. Astringent hot hop aroma. Overly carbonated. Herby. Good quality in mouth though and then astringent acidic hop finish. Intense. Very intense. Citrus fruits are lemony grapefruit with a nice alcohol faint sweetness. Dries the mouth. Herbry astringent hop is done very very well.
