3fourths (8788) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2003
GABF 2003: Dark gold and amber appearance. Beautiful cascade hop aroma. Sharp, stinging bitterness immidiately evident. While this is nice, it masks the flavor a little too much, so only a little hint of peaches and lemon show up. Palate is quite nice for an American IPA.

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Draft pint at the brewpub, 9/14/06: Nice amber color with a shiny sheen. Not much aroma, but it delivers a nice wood-chippy hoppiness. Quite delicious.

onceblind (6053) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Clear golden with a thin white foamy cap. Lovely floral and leafy fresh hop nose with a touch of earthy dankness. Flavor is good and floral with a backing of grapefruit zest and orange rind, a little kiss of pine resin, earthy and leafy fresh bitterness, and a thick pale malt background.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2007
GABF 2007: Poured a clear gold with an off-white head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Piny. Very fresh dry hop notes. Some malt but the big pine in the middle of the flavor. Dry finish.

kidmartinek (4046) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Clean copper pour. Small white head. Slight haziness. Strong, hop bittering aroma. Smoth hoppy taste with a short smoth punch at the end. Holds its carbonation well. Delish. Better than what you’re drinking right now.

Steve_0 (3582) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2012
On tap at Foam Fest ’12. Pour is golden orange in appearance with a big, fluffy white head. Aroma is piney, soapy, floral hops, and a touch of caramel. Taste is dank, grass, weed, some resin, but nice floral hops, as well. Balanced well with a nice caramel backbone. Medium body with medium carbonation. Pretty good IPA.
