chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2010
12-oz bottle. Ap - A hazy deep orange that looks like honey. Three-finger pillowy head with good retention and lacing. Noticed a lot of unexpected unfiltered sediment in the last pour. I am guessing it is bottle conditioned. Ar - smells like a orange juice. Malty aroma balances the citrus hops. A touch of yeast is present as well. T - Very smooth. Its a honey biscuit with a grapefruit juice chaser. The three flavors are very well balanced for the style. I don’t think I have had an IPA with this high of a yeast profile. But it is pleasant and not overdone. A long finish give you your money’s worth with every sip. P - Mouthfeel is what it should be for the style. Creamy and a touch sticky. Medium to full bodied and almost creamy. O - Balance gives this beer high drinkability. My second Mad River brew. So far I am impressed.

Pours clear copper color with a small head. Resin and orange on the nose, malts, toffee, apricot. Flavor is malty and caramel-y, bitterness, resinous hops and mild sweet toffee, ripe fruits on the finish. Alcohol is not too strongly present but is there. Decent.

jamestulloch (3585) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle from Bridgend Service Station. Murky amber body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of rye, pine and honey. Flavour of caramel, fig and dried leaves. Medium body with a powdery texture. Soft fizz. Quite sweet and heavy going. Tastes like a Barley Wine.

andrewje41 (3096) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2016
12 oz bottle poured at a restaurant in Humboldt County. Pours a thick copper orange with a rocky foam head. Rich caramel and soft pine hops aroma with a matching flavor. Good malt bill. Creamy. Medium bitterness. Has a memorable sweetness to it. Not really July typenif double here. Doesn’t drink very easy, but has good things going for it. Not bad.

Bright orange draft pour at 99 bottles of beer on the wall, in Santa Cruz. Orange and tangerine, ripe fruit and tropical. Good. And little dank fruit.

6 pack with Indian food. Decent, booze sneaks up on you. This one is all west coast- piney, resin, slick, citrus and tropical with caramel malts in the background. Not jumping up and down about this one, but I didn’t stop after one.

JPDIPSO (5795) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Hazed amber colored liquid with a moderate head of small beige bubbles. Decent lace. Grains and citric scents along with hints of butterscotch and ripe fruit. Very malty flavors. Bitterness is more acidic. Full bodied. I would consider this more English in nature with the amount of malt and less grapefruit flavors. Solid, but it has a few rough edges.

Cloudy amber pour. Nose is grapefruit and intense caramel. Sticky caramel, spruce, grapefruit. Moderate bitter hop finish. Creamy mouthfeel.
