not sure of the freshness of this one, but it’s what they were serving at Canfest. Medium bitterness and florals. Understated hop aroma and flavor as far as the citrus and pine is concerned. OK, but definitely nothing that makes me see the high rank. i like the Trader Session Ipa MARKEDLY BETTER.

A good though not exceptional IPA, on tap at Capone’s Restaurant. Big IBU, fruity and orange. Spider lace. Decent drinkability, however some bleach in the finish.

Cask at the Atlanta Cask Ale fest. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of sweet grains and grassy hops with a hint of resin. Flavor has much more resin and pine up front that mellow to grass with a sweet grain backbone.

rosenbergh (11931) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2015
12 oz bottle. BB 10/03/14. From a kiosk in Portland, OR.
Hazy orangey golden color with a small white head. Citrusy hops, lemon, mild bitterness and dry grainy malt in the aroma. The flavor is... old hops... shit... I didn’t check the BB date before buying... There’s old hops, mild bitterness and dryness in the flavor. Needs a rerate.
And the rerate is coming much sooner than I thought...
12 oz can. BB 1/8/16. (Beermongers) Portland, OR.
Deep golden color with a small white head. Citrusy and piney hops, some bitterness and dryness in the aroma. The flavor is... fresh... citrusy and piney hops, moderate bitterness... Tasty.

355 ml. split by 4 @ “Sir Goatie McGoat S&G Tasting”. Thank you Mathieu87 and/or PriorL! BBF tomorrow when consumed. Dark hazy orange, little white head. Nose is orange, plaster, oily, yeast is a bit too upfront. Taste is sweetish plaster, oily pine, orange, light pine, floral, some bread. Body is a bit yeasty, oily. Okay, bit too yeasty but it is also not super fresh so there is that.
