Brigadier (3620) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12 ounce bottle
Clean, simple, and full of flavor. This is what an IPA should be like. While the ABV is a bit too high to call it sessionable or a lawnmower beer it does not wear down the palate with an aggressive assault that makes it tiresome after one glass. Thanks to tastybeer for the bottle.

Aroma / Appearance - A rich pillowy head builds to fill the pint glass before slowly collapsing in on itself. When it does a bronze transparent base appears. Marmalade, orange, and creamsicle brighten the air with the addition of citrusy hops. Inviting and light it offers the hop head promises of a great time.

Flavor / Palate - Resiny hops cling to the corners of the palate. Marmalade and grass sparkle in the throat. A moderate rosy finish dries up after providing a refreshing touch. This is a fine example of what an IPA can be when it does not try to go over the top.

coachd (730) - Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2017
Sweet malty aroma with fresh piney hops backing it up. Dark golden color with a huge tuft of white foam. Very hoppy flavor, the variety of hops makes it a bit muddled; I would have liked one or a few of the hop varieties given a chance to shine. Some of the malt sweetness comes through in the aftertaste. Still good, just a little too busy. Great palate. It coats the mouth with just a hint of carbonation. This was good not great.

Just seemed to have to many hop flavors going on once. Drinkable but not my favorite.

ajnepple (6015) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Draft at the Ole Saint Kitchen & Tap. Golden to orange appearance and slightly hazy with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma of spruce, flowers, citrus zest, light hop resin and a touch of grains. Similar flavor, adding moderate hop bitterness and a clean, smooth finish. Solid IPA overall.

Hopmaestro (1539) - rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2017
Aroma is hoppy with citrus and grapefruit sting. Taste is pretty smooth but still a medium malty taste with a little stale hops. Probably a little old, but more than decent.

oobawa (983) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Pretty basic old-school Southern IPA, malt-forward and mildly bitter, more concerned with packing a boozy punch than torching your tongue with IBUs. Aroma is surprisingly nondescript for such a big-name hop profile, and this lackluster hoppiness translates rather directly into the taste. Large amounts of biscuit malts give the brew the malty heft of an amber ale, with an underlying sweetness only cut by the hops towards the back end. Finishes piney with a modest floral flourish, and the bitterness fades away rather quickly. Drinkable, but not much of an IPA, to be honest.

ARH (1124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Bright citrus and tropical fruit aromas with undertones of honey and a floral hint. Clear orange gold with a dense foamy, fuzzy head that lingers with. Its a wonderful balance of hoppy floral and honey-ish malt. Its smooth and easy with a citrus aftertaste

willisread (3089) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Can from Discount. Pours a clear deep gold to light amber with a finger of pillowy foam. Well-balanced. Caramel, citrus, pine dominate. Some peach on the palate with pine. Clean, soft carbonation. Simple but well-executed.
