superspak (5129) - Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2017
12 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, bottled on 12/18/2016. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, guava, mango, melon, berry, grapefruit, lemon, light pine, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, guava, mango, melon, berry, grapefruit, lemon, light pepper/pine, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, guava, mango, melon, berry, grapefruit, lemon, cracker, bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.7%. Overall this is a very nice hoppy blonde ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Really bright and nicely juicy on hops, with a nice balancing malt profile. Never overly bitter or drying; plenty of flavor for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Braudog (6517) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Bottle. Clear and golden, with a big, fortified head of foam. The aroma is specific and muscled ... earthen, gritty hops. The beer drinks with a big, hoppy aroma, and a well conditioned skeleton of malt behind it. So many brewers brew "IPAs" that have this American acidity, but fewer and fewer are really delivered with the fully-built foundation like this one has. Brilliant. And they dont call it an "IPA." Well done. (#6516, 2/20/2017)

Bottle from Publix Brooksville. Pours a mostly clear orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is some grain, some dry yeast, some citrus, orange, lemon zest. Flavor is similar with grain, lemon, tropical fruit, and some dry yeast. Light in body and a very dry finish.
