Butters (4063) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle at the Fourth Butters’ Cellar Clearance Event. Clear orange pour. Awesomely ’stinky’ earthy floral hop aroma. Flavor is residually sticky hop, with a hint of spiciness. Lots of pine and pineapple. Cool label. Nice IPA. Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2009
12 oz bottle at Butters’ 4th Cellar Reduction. Pours a thin off-white head with a clover honey color body. Subtle aroma of hops and honey. Tastes of bubblegum, honey, and hops. Not very bitter. roborb (66) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Poured into a 12 oz Pint glass the beer has a dark orange or copper hue. The head was off white and disappeared quickly. It smells strongly of citrus. The taste follows the smell and has a prickly carbonation. I found the malt in this beer to over-power the hop profile. This would be an OK session beer but I would not search it out. crackedmachine (481) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Pours light copper/orange with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus. The malt is upfront and slightly sweet, and there is a hint of alcohol, but the hops kick in quickly and leave a bitter, slightly grassy finish. A decent IPA. shadey (2148) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 18, 2009
12oz bottle from BOTW. Pours a dark melon orange with a thin white head of cream lace. Aroma is juicy hops and fruit. Flavor is nice too. Not overly impressive but quite tasty.
TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Milwaukee, WI). Pours a hazy amber with thick white bubbly head. Aromas are light hoppy citrus, florals, and light malt. Taste is an empty bittering up front, breaking way to pine and light carmel malt. Largely pine. A bit offbalanced, decent. wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Decent IPA, but bordering on amber ale status. Lots of caramel malt and slightly sweet taste. Turns dry in the finish when the hops appear. Medium bodied and full flavored. I did not realize it was 7%. Could have used some more spiciness to overpower all of the malts. Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2009
a pretty decent IPA, has a nice floral hop aroma, and a pretty nice hop taste to it, decent body. JoeMcPhee (9516) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle shared by goldtwins. Orange coloured brew. Aroma is lightly orangey and herbal. A bit of light earthy fruitiness. Slightly oxidized malts. Chewy and lightly sweet. A lingering fruitiness. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Bottled Sep Week 4, Poured a slightly hazed orange with a creamy off-white head that had a thin layer lasting a good lace. Nice floral and citrus hop aroma. The flavor has malts with a citrus background. Medium body and medium bitterness. Decent.
