Im not sure why the ratings are so low, I am pleasantly surprised by how good Gus is. Beautiful light golden hue, white one finger head, smells like a line cone. Tastes like a hop forward iipa done well!! I don't know you but cheers Gus!

Slightly cloudy amber copper body with a big off white head, looks nice enough but it's time to take a smell. Aromatics quality citrus, grapefruit pith, crushed aspirin the label states three hops Columbus, Centennial, and Palisade. Caramel malt adds enough fresh baked bread sweetness to balance out 100+ IBUs. The best by date on the bottle is June 2014, but the hops here are muddled. The beer hits the palate with full force abrasiveness, a bit of a sour/tartness. Hop pellets, sourdough bread, alcohol sits on the palate with a muddled wallop of hop resins, pretty harsh mouthfeel/flavor combos. I love IPA, this Gus IPA has the right components but doesn't execute with specific hop flavors the way I perceive hops from some of my favorite IPAs. Overall I will keep being loyal to the crew at Full Pint, I know they are great brewers Shaun/Garrett/whoever else helps these guys brew. Artwork is awesome it's like a reincarnated Stevie Ray Vaughn (I've never met the guy, but I guess they have a house bluesman named Gus), pretty cool.

Moderate off-white head, hazy, juicy orange brew with lemon yellow highlights. Good retention and nice lacing.

Strong malt profile amid pine and citrus hop aromas, but it doesn't come across as stale - a bit faded perhaps, but not stale. Pale malt and grains with a hint of toasted malt.

Hop profile is a bit juicier and more tropical fruit-oriented than I would have guessed. Star fruit and mango, amid pine and a bit of citrus peel. Malts are pale and grainy - like the aroma - with a sweet finish.

Extremely long wet and sticky finish. Little sting, but very lively.

The age of this beer is unknown, so rating it requires a small leap of faith. If this is an older bottle, then I'm impressed at its drinkability. If it's relatively fresh, then it's a fairly mediocre - but OK - IPA.

I found this beer similar to their TriPA except a bit more balanced.

A - A very dirty amber brown color with just a 1/4 inch of head that fades to a ring. Very little lacing.
S - I agree with others this beer is a very malt forward IPA. Baked sourdough bread and some muddled hops. On the plus side it doesn't have any ethanol smells so it must be balanced.
T - It has a good hop taste but mostly pellets but whatever I didn't expect "fresh hop" Other than that the bready malts are quite tasty and it even has some lingering hops in the finish.
M - Body is decent more medium bodied for this IPA.

Overall this really should be listed as a DIPA any beer over 7.5% is beyond regular IPA requirements. For what it is though its quite good but nothing to faun over since more balanced DIPA's are available.
