Bottle shared by Jay at Zach and Matt’s 4/20 IPA tasting. Pours clear yellow gold with white head. Nose and taste of grass, light hop water and light grain. No flavor. Light bodied.

bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bomber from HalfTime. Pours light golden/orange amber with a transient white head. Aroma of light citrus and some herb/veg. Med body. Flavor is rather herbal with some background citrus. It’s a good hoppy beer, but at 7% I don’t think it qualifies as imperial/double. Finishes dry and pretty bitter.

On tap at the Blue Tusk. The bitterness is in your face, its not so drinkable. Very vegetable taste. Above averae mouthfee of this salad. lacey and one eighth of an inch head.

j12601 (11939) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle at a tasting at Matt’s place. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet caramel and graininess on the nose, soft sweet toast, a bit of dusty hops. Grainy, sweet with some caramel and some light earthy hops. Moves into a long bitterness. As with most Saranac beers, this is not terrible.

Amber coloured and faint hazy. Has a white head. Aroma is light sweet, fruity, some wet herbs, vegetables. Flavor starts light sweet, finish heavy to harsh bitter.

2.2
jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Draft at Pony Bar HK with Linh and Vi. Pours an amber body with white lacing. Aroma is plain - maybe some muted malts, lots of caramel, and grainy lager notes. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of grain, somehwat offensive. Not an IPA, no where near a double IPA. Awful.

1.6
PhillyCraft (7225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Tap Wet hop ipa... Sounds good doesn’t it? Well this beer is so terrible and unlike any ipa you would wanna drink that I’m not going to waste more then a sentence or two on it. Aromas and taste of heavy malt, booze, lager grains, spicy wood. No hop freshness or herbal citrus in my glass.
