ganache (5896) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Hours-old growler delivered by a friend on a cross-country trip. Huge aroma hops, floral herbal must, grass, wet hops, pine, caramel. Some grapefruit and PNW but the overall effect is balanced across the hop spectrum. Really knows what he’s doing! Perfect lacing rocky off-white head, lightly hazy copper pour. Taste is assertively, extremely bitter, thin chopped resin with a slightly off-putting astringency, maybe some tannins. Chewy medium body, earthy, big caramel with light floral notes, pine is also big. Lightly oily. Sticky lips and long-lasting aftertaste. Final verdict: good!

This beer definitely stood out on the sampler board as being the IPA - clear amber color, and a head of big bubbles that faced to a sticky residue like a lot of IPAs I’ve seen. From the aroma and flavor, I could tell it was an IPA, but it didn’t offer quite enough hop for me to really deliver a positive rating...I could detect hints of hop in the aroma and flavor, and there was definitely nothing offensive about this beer, but I would’ve liked to have a little more hoppiness in this IPA.
As I mentioned, the body was a clear copper-amber and the head soapy and consisting of large bubbles. Aroma was slightly hoppy. Flavor was also slightly hoppy, with some nice malt behind it, but really a little bland for this style. Mouthfeel was OK.
An alright beer, but I think more hop would really elevate this beer.
I had a sample of this on-tap at the brewery. satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2009
not much to say besides this is definatley well bittered! great hop blend, and great hop bill (per jay himself!). very sessionable yet with a still worthwhile ABV. BuckeyeBoy (7663) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 20, 2008
On tap Weasel Boy Brewing Zanesville, OH. Pours out a hazy copper topped with a san head. Aroma of hops all over with one. Along with some light malts. Tast the hops a nice bitter end. 1010 (309) - Dublin, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Had this beer on tap at the Columbus Microbrew Festival. Pours a cloudy copper color and taste of hops like a typical IPA. This is a solid IPA.

On tap at the Columbus Microbrew Festival. Nice hazy copper pour with descent head. Really hoppy, almost overly so (and I love Hops) without much of a malt character to balance the hops. nice beer for a hop head though. Smooth meidum body with right amount of carbonation. Overall: nice, try it. kassner (1659) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2008

An old rating i finally got to entering. Aroma of floral hops and malt. A light malty flavor that was pretty smooth overall. 3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 Excuse me while I gush. I’m still talking about this beer. Sharp, spongy, gooey, dank, damp, herbal, green, wet, damp, I’m running out of words. Smells like a mash of fresh cut lawn clippings, cannabis and mint leaves. The taste HOLY HELL it’s the ickiest of the sticky, it’s insanely bitter, biting and drying, it’s coarse... no shyness at all, just a full force assault of everything hops should be, supercharged bitterness and harshness "balanced" by a chewy, dank, resinous quality. My senses were somewhat "amplified" at the time I drank this, for the record, so that probably had a lot to do with it, but I don’t care, because this beer fucking rocks. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2008
(growler, thanks Schroppfy) Lightly hazed light amber body topped by medium off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, cat urine, light bread. Taste is mild sweet, grapefruit/pine, light cat urine. Quite bitter, unbalanced. Medium-full body, some resin.
