Drake (13300) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle courtesy of queenholly. Thanks! Pours a fairly hazy amber color with a thin tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of woody, earthy hops with caramel malts and a bit of apple. The taste is herbal, woody hops, some citrus, caramel malts and a dry finish. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness. Decent APA.

Dogbrick (12596) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Courtesy of Kahn's in Indy. This beer is a bright amber color with a thin but lasting eggshell white head. Thin lacing all the way to the bottom. The aroma is really nice citrus and hops. Medium-bodied and easy to drink with a solid hops flavor that is both floral and citrusy. The finish is fairly bitter and lasting. Overall I am rather impressed with what a good APA this turned out to be.

hopdog (12113) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with atpayne (thanks!). This one initially poured all head. Eventually settled down to a medium amber color. Aromas of grapefruit, wet grass, caramel, and a little on the floral side. Tastes of caramel, grapefruit and floral. I expected it to be over carbonated with the way this one was pouring, but it wasn’t.

shrubber85 (11215) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Tap at MA. LIght orange hops aroma. Amber with small head. Sweet orange-pineapple flavor with a moderate hops finish. Standard APA but a good brew.

deyholla (11016) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy orangish amber with an off white head. Aroma smells some what like a wet pine forest, a bit musty. Flavor is quite one note with bitter hops, a bit of a wooden flavor as well.

hopscotch (10998) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Bottle... Clear light amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. Fruity, earthy hops with black tea, kiwi fruit and light oak in the nose. Perfectly balanced flavor with moderate sweetness and bitterness and a touch of tropical fruit. Medium-bodied with a sawdust mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Finishes fruity and dry. A big SHOUT goes out to MI2CA for sending the bottle my way!
