Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2009
Bottle. Haket. Gothenburg. Orange colour with an off-white head. Hoppy, floral and bitter. grape, pine, mandarin, sugar, a bit of saltiness, light chlorine. Harsch bitterness in the finish. The Simcoe IPA is much better in my opinion.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2009
33cl bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy but beautiful orange with a thick off-white head that lasts a long time and leaves lots of egg-white-like lace all over the glass. The aroma is hops, hops, hops, hops, hops. Interestingly, it doesn’t smell like Cascade I’m accustomed to - it definitely has an expected citrus tone to it (almost like bitter orange) but it also has a surprisingly herbal note, almost like Palisades or an English hop. There are also touches of anise (from yeast by-products/esters?) and honey. The flavor starts with a nice, dry, biscuity, crackery malt foundation. There is a big dose of surprisingly grassy hops along with expected citrus notes. There are also lots of funky esters going on here (Belgian IPA I guess?) - most notably giving anise flavors but also hints of pineapple and candied ginger. The finish is quite bitter, but well-balanced with a decent - though not sweet - malt bready malt character. The mouthfeel is crisp and decently carbonated but turns creamy and slippery after swishing it in the mouth - surprisingly full for what would otherwise seem to be a medium-bodied beer. Overall, this is a decent IPA, but not superb. I think the Belgian qualities threw me - and also interfere with the "single hop" experience, as they give it so many other flavors that mask the pure Cascade hop flavors.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2009
bottle thanks to blutt59. poured a hazy yellow/gold with a white head. aroma of citrus, peach, and other fruity notes. flavor was pine, citrus, and grass. this rating is based off about a 1/4 of an ounce.

3.6
BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a large, creamy off-white head and a slightly hazed amber body. Aroma is dank and grassy hops, light tropical fruit (mango), melon and caramel. Taste is earthy and lightly herbal, with some citrus, hoppy with a note of fruit that makes me think of melon. medium carbonation and a water like mouthfeel.

3.5
blutt59 (6563) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2009
bottle, golden orange with fading white foam, light pineapple and evergreen aromas, flavor is a light bitter grapefruit and jello fruit salad, dry, slight tangy bitter finish

3.4
Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle. Nose-clean and fresh like clothes that have been dried outside on a line, light grapefruit, very raw. Taste-aggressive unsweet hops, sweet, odd mouthfeel, weird aftertaste. It tastes like an IPA heavily hopped with PNW hops. Go figure

3.7
SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a hazy gold with nice white head. Aroma of lots of hops, pine, fruity, dirty socks. Flavor is not bad at all, malty, piney, strong bitter. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall, pretty good shit!

3.8
17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2009 Bottle. Pours a beautiful clear glowing orange with a tall rocky sudsy off-white froth that sticks around forever and leaves great lacing. Funky aroma, sweaty green hops, fruity, lightly sweet, light caramel. Flavor is resiny and fruity, moving towards salty, light citrus, intense pine needles and grapefruit, pretty dry, some plasticy tasting malts/yeast, super quick finish with a very long extreme bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, a bit chewy, sharp medium sized fizzy carbonation. Extreme.

3.7
Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2009
11.2 oz bottle. Poured clear amber in color with a large beige frothy head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of earthy piney hops, and some grapefruit. Tastes of strong citrus hops, grapefruit, piney, and some light caramel. Nice IPA.

3.7
deyholla (11506) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Bottle. Poured amber with a off white head. Aroma is piney and hoppy with a nice hint of fruit. Flavor was full of bitterness complimented by a piney flavor. Quite enjoyable.
