Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2008

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 31, 2008
22oz bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was thick and off white with decent retention. Some lace was left behind at the end. Attractive aroma of crushed spruce needles, grapefruit, orange marmalade, and brown sugar. Initial delicate sweetness was quickly suppressed by assertive hop bitterness that peaked at about 7 out of 10. Light to medium bodied with caramel and citrusy/sprucy/sweaty hop flavors. Tasty.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Courtesy of foureyedgeek. Chunky bits float in an orange body with a thin beige head. Smells old and skunky, with cardboard, caramel, and slight hop notes. Tastes the same as the smell, and very flat and watery. Boring. Skip.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Bomber courtesy of foureyedgeek. Pours hazy, light copper with fizzy white head, thin and lingering. Nose is big on caramel and toffee, slight butter. Big caramel wit ha touch of chocolate and toffee, slight bread. Nice bitter at the end, moderate to moderate +. Good balance overall. Love the bitter. Nice beer. Not overly hopbomb-ie.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Courtesy of foureyed geek. A nice orange golden color with some sediment and a thick foamy white head. A little lacing as well. A malty figgy nose with a lot of brown sugar and some floral hoppy notes. A nice sweet balanced flavor. A lot of toffee, flowers, brown sugar, and a great bitterness. Like some of the other port stuff, the taste left isnt overpowering... just tasty.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2008
From bottle courtesy of foureyedgeek. Peach and pear, grassy fruity hops, light sweet malt, with a bit of buttered rum. A tad aged, perhaps. Hazy golden amber with some chunks, light off-white foamy lacing head. Medium watery body with medium-light carbonation, with a bit of warming. Starts mild, with oak and grassy hops, sweet malty buttery rum. Light grassy-hoppy bitter finish with pleasant sweet bitter after. A bit of broth, too. Nice IPA.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2008
A very solid IPA. Had it on tap, pours a hazy amber with a nice white head. Aroma is overpowering of hops, citrus dominating. Great flavor, nice carbonation, and nicely balanced. Good stuff.

Pours a hazy amber topped by huge frothy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy sweet, orange, caramel, grapefruit and floral. Flavor is medium sweet, orange peel, grapefruit and a small caramel backbone. Medium body, somewhat dry. Nice long piney bitter finish.
