hayduke (5572) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 27, 2010
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a clear orange with a very fatr white head with good retention that left rick lacing in the glass. The nose is very strong and leaps out of the glass with citrus and pine hops. Body if full, and the mouthfeel slick and smooth. Te flavor is light on malt and heavy on hops, with lots of bitterness. Somewhat oddly the finish tails off a bit but is still decent all way to the last sip. A good IPA.

DietPepsican (1592) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2010
orange pour with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, biscuit, and caramel. Flavor is too malt forward, and the hop flavor has a plastic twang going on. Lot’s of biscuit going on in this and some orange sucker hops staleness. Bitter finish, good carbonation.

clear gold color, slight white head, some lace. good looking beer. mildy hoppy nose with a trace of caramelly creaminess. only mildly hoppy, trace of grain and caramel in the flavor. medium bodied, light bitter finish. a bit of fun, but ultimately i found it a little too mild.

Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2010
(bottle) Clear orange pour with a large white head that retains quite well and leaves lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is a bit muted to start, with some light floral notes, lime, slightly earthy and herbal as well. Flavor is rather pleasant, but the malt is very subdued, with just a hint of sweetness to begin things before the hops kick in. The hop flavors here include some tangerine-like fruitiness and lime zest which carries for sometime before begin replaced by a spicy and well-balanced bitterness. The finish really sets this beer apart while the weak aroma and subdued malt character keep it from being a truly top tier IPA. It is still above-average however.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2010
Pours a deep golden body with an off-white lacing head. Aromas are floral and mango. Flavor is grainy, tropical fruit, and floral. Finish is bitter, dry, and floral.

can8ianben (1556) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2010
A really solid IPA attempt from NB. Big citrus notes waft out of the glass - clearly some Cascade going on here. Appearance is a clear golden orange with a thick foamy white head. Certainly a classic dry bitter finish, but just enough sweet body to hold up to the monsterous hop presence. Mmm - this is another beer from NB that is solid enough to keep a six in the fridge all the time.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - APR 20, 2010
A nice clear copper beer with a healthy off-white head that lasts and leaves lace. Aroma is vague hoppiness, maybe some citrus and other fruit sticking out. Flavor begins with hops, got a subtle caramel maltiness atop decent hop bitterness. This is a fine example of what an american IPA should be, although by no means a standout in the category.

Indiana winterfest - Pours copper with a very good grapefruit hop aroma. The citrus hops are big and really tasty in the flavor too, lending a crisp bitterness backed by the more mild malt body. Excellent IPA.
