Prufrockstar (2018) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Unexpected bottle thanks to beastiefan2k. Lovely crystal clear amber pour with dense creamy white head. Aroma is surprisingly floral right off the bat, and rounds out with pine and caramel. Malt backdrop brings very little sweetness and plays a supporting role to assertively bitter finish. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, oily texture.

portwood (217) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2016
Dry tropical fruits, orange, peach. Full bodied, creamy carbonation, caramel. Pithy bitterness, medium dry. Less expressive nose than hop knife but fuller mouth, less dry and more complex finish. (bottle bb 11/18/16)

HourGlass13 (671) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Pours crystal clear, amber colored body, capped by a tall off-white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, yeasty, with earthy hops. Taste is hop forward, citrus, some orange peel was noticeable. Good dose of sweetness as well. On the back end, the hops turned sharp and quite bitter. Super oily and resinous. The bitterness came through even more in the finish. Uber pithy and piney with an astringency that was off the charts. The mouth feel was light and frothy.

TattooJack (514) - Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2016
from the can of a 12 pack smuggled back from Philly in a checked bag, clear orange. Taste is sticky pine, gritty grapefruit rind, nice carbonation, and good ABV.

12oz bottle from fall mix pack. Bottled 7/27/16 but the pack was sitting in a fridge when I purchased it. Its a pretty Imperial Pale Ale. Poured into a small nonic glass. Very clear golden body with a moderately sticky lacing and a head that never fades. The malt character on this also is really well done. Strong backbone of clean white breadiness, no husks, no sweetness but pleasantly present. This Imperial Pale Ale’s undoing is the hops. The hops are even clean with no off flavors or over hopping. However, there are a gazillon hops in this beer and I have no idea what hop flavors they want out of it. So, it just comes off as undescript hoppiness, with nothing shining through. Mish mash of typical hop flavors all in a light format. A good starter Imperial Pale, low bitterness for style. I would drink this for the malt character but be unhappy with the hops.

tfontana (806) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from One Stop Market. Appearance is clear gold with orange tint, nice sparkle, 1/2 finger-width white fizzy head with poor retention and fair lacing. Aroma is strong fruit, dank resin, earth, citrus. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with thick texture, lively carbonation and dry, resiny bitter finish. Overall, nice look, and decent complexity but I’m not as huge a fan of dank resin as some other hop characteristics.
