Served on tap at House of 1000 Beers
A - Pours a really nice pale yellow color, 1 finger white fluffy head, moderate lacing
S - Nice fresh aroma, hops, a little pine, and a faint hint of mint.
T - About the same as the aroma, fresh flavors of hops, not agressively bitter, but just right, lighter malts, and some very minor dry citrus
M - Thinner, not bad, but very refreshing.
O - This is a solid APA by all means. I've had it a bomber previous and its a great refreshing quality thats hard to beat.

bomber into Flying Dog chalice. bottle dating is hard to read. looks like a best before sometime in January 2013 if i had to guess.

A: pretty hazy brew. a bright orange on the first pour, but the second half of the bottle looks a lot paler cause of all the yeasty sediment. head is slightly off-white and frothy. not very big. retention is good as is the thick coat of lacing.

S: a little bit of nail polish remover. fruit salad. melons and cantaloupe. definitely more on the fruity american hop side than earthy or piney.

T: the bitterness is there, but not biting. fruity and piney. a little bit of cardboard. a little bit of graham cracker.

M: soft carbonation. medium bodied. works well.

D: not exceptional but not terrible. definitely some flaws in there, however overall i find it a drinkable fresh-hop brew. however appearance is definitely a negative, way too much yeast floating around in this thing.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, a nice earthy hop presence, yet a touch mellow. In the taste, a very nice earthy dryer hop all the way through. A small dryness and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry, fresh hop in the aftertaste. A nice mellow dryer hop, somewhat mellow and decent across the board.

22oz bottle
Purchased Oct. 2012
Stella Artois chalice

A: Pours a dirty yellowish brown like color. One finger of bright white soapy bubbled head. I really had to pour it aggressively to get that. But there seems to be carbonation, because I am seeing tight tiny bubbles coming up from the bottom. Leaves some lacing sheeting.

S: I was surprised that this had a pretty faint nose for a wet hop ale. Getting some floral notes. Some weak pine hints. Also, bready malts behind it all.

T: On the tip of the tongue, you get a burst of pine bitterness. Weird soapy like flavors. Not getting bright citrus or pine or other fruits that I was expecting. Just really blah IPA flavors, actually like it's been sitting around for a little bit? Homebrew like quality to this one actually.

M: It's a medium bodied IPA. The malts add to that.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: burnt-orange. Quite opaque. As attractive an IPA as I have seen.

S: Dominant pine in the nose. A little but of citrus, but overshadowed by the pine.

T: wonderful. Ultra-bitter throughout. Tasting some caramel in the middle, but it's subtle. Perhaps with age this becomes more balanced, but 1 week off the bottling line it's a total hop bomb.

M: Surprisingly thick. Not a lot of carbonation.

O: Really, really happy with how this year's batch has turned out. A fresh bottle is competitive with any other IPA out there. Based on the other review's below, it sounds like this goes downhill quickly, but I could drink fresh bottles regularly if they were available in other months besides October/November.

First had: on tap at the Khyber (back when they were cool and had shows), Philly, PA

Poured a lightly hazy copper color, with a small off-white head that receded rather quickly. Nose of caramel malts and herbal hops. Pretty basic taste, caramel balanced with grassy / herbal hops, a touch of citrus pith. Light-medium body, decent flavor, a fine average drinker overall. Nothing you haven't had before.
