Typical light coppery IPA pour with virtually no head and light white lacing. Nose is bitter hops and fruit, but not overly strong. Flavor brings the hops on fairly strong with a decent balancing malt and a touch of candy. Finish is fairly quick and mostly bitter. Solid IPA, but nothing you’ll remember a year from now.

An old favorite that is suspiciously cheap so surprised we had not rated it before. Pours a golden amber classic IPA color and smells like wet boxer shorts and hops. The taste is a tad bit of bitter and some malty rounded oats dancing alongside some citrus mush. Very easy drinking and chuggable for a 7.3 ABV. Good for listening to some classic Scharpling & Wurster while chugging chicken soup with your boo boo sicky.

Dacrza (1008) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2017
DATE: September 10, 2017... OCCASION: week one of football continues...Browns lose another opener.... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... pours a robust, prototypical amber body, with ample effervescence building a single-finger head that thickly coats the glass in white.... the lacing is irregular but tangible... caramel and grapefruit meet at the first whiff... light resin, dank basement, and doughy malts fight for air time... all in all, suggestive of balance... the first sip is medium-bodied, stocky, blunted at the teeth and rounded at the throat... deceptively hides its strength in a crunchy, chewy mouthfeel... the caramel almost usurps the resin, but enough citric fruits--grapefruit, most prominently--with lemon and apple also late... this beer is a sipper disguised as an easy-drinking IPA...

Light orange brown beer with a beige foam. Very citrussy aroma. Very bitter hops and quite thick bodied. Dried fruits in the flavor. Quite nice combination of bitterness and dried, orange fruits.

bulldogops (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2017
Rating #2650 - 2016.06.28 - Bottle brought back from Utah. Pours a crisp straw golden with a bubbly white head, little retention. Aroma is grass, pine needles, orange rind, and earth. Way more citrus on the palate than in aromatic, some decent tangerine notes, some pineapple, lemon peel with a healthy dose of bitterness. Lovely IPA.
