Luvystypotables (1967) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Aroma of dried fruit and malt, caramel colored with a short lasting head. Taste of malt and citrus, slightly bitter with a bitter chalky palate.

ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2014
On tap. Copper color with thick foamy ivory head. Very faint aroma of citrus and tobacco. Very sharp hop bitterness. Not very balanced. Citrus, tobacco, and skunk.

jbruner (4740) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2014
UPDATED: APR 24, 2014 Cask dry hopped with mosaic sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a golden orange with decent off-white head. Aroma of awesome fresh tropical citrus and zesty new world garlic, taste of nice resinous citrus and earthy hops with a decent pale malt background. Light carbonation and creamy mouth, solid beer.

Cybercat (5834) - Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Comes out of the tap a pretty clear amber with a thick, find-bubbled ivory head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, not strong but tempting. Hoppy flavor has strong woody and hay notes,a little bitterness, a hint of grapefruit. Mouthfeel is firm and smooth, and leaves a lasting tingle. North or south, a worthy IPA.

smaynard6000 (1167) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours an amber color with minimal white head. Has a sweeter, maltier aroma than most IPAs. Somewhat sweet flavor with a grassy, bitter finish. Not bad, different from the norm.

solidfunk (8953) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 11, 2014
A light citrus taste with some unremarkable malt and an ok session beer quality to it. Pours orangy red with ok head and lacing. Medium bitterness, fizzy carbonation. Tap at 121 Acre.

GnarlyGnome (770) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle: pours a clear golden color with a big off white head. Aromas of grapefruit and sweet fruit. Taste is bitter, but has an easy drinking, almost watery mouthfeel. Normally watery is not what I want, but right now I actually am enjoying it... It’s clean and fresh... Drinkable.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger frothy off-white head that left some decent lacing. The nose is more slightly sweet crystal malt than it is hops, which is usually a very bad sign for an IPA. Very muted citrusy hop character. The flavor is overly sweet as well, hella strong on the sweet iced tea crystal malt. Very minimal hop bitterness, this doesn’t even come close to IPA levels of hoppiness. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation, slightly sticky and clingy on the back end from all the residual sugars. Awful IPA.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy orange-amber color with a small creamy orange-tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty with notes of lemon and grapefruit. The flavor was bitter, tart and sour with strong grapefruit moderate lemon and lime. Long bitter, tart and sour grapefruit finish. Medium body. Ok.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2014
bottle. caramel/orange colored pour. Very malt forward IPA. Malt dominated, slight floral & Citrusy hop presence. Sweet malts from front to finish
