Very little aroma. Appears a hazy orange-amber color with a small white head. Flavor of citrus hops over sweet malt, with good balance. Palate is moderate with little effervescence. Overall, nothing too exciting, though the balance of flavors is quite good.

Smells of hops but more like a pale ale. The flavor also seems like a pale ale until the very dry finish. Decent enough.

Beer was not cold enough when put in the growler. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and brought it home and used my beer refrigerator to get it down to proper temp. I thought the aroma had a slight bitterness from the hops but contained more malts than I expected. The appearance is very typical of an IPA. I enjoyed the taste. It has a good malt backbone and it ended up being much better than I anticipated. Service on the other hand is normally great, so I was let down today. Especially considering I go here often.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Brownish copper color, substantial foamy head. Very fresh hoppy aroma, peachy and citrusy, moderate malt with a little bit of a yeasty or stale grain aspect to it. Flavor is lightly sweet malt and perfumey hops. Sharp, tingly hoppy finish, a little bit of clovey yeastiness exudes.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2009
On tap at the brewpub: Pours a transparent copper amber with a full-lacing coating of light beige head. Aroma of fresh resiny grapefruity hops and a light caramel malty character. Starts with good fullness and floral piny hops with a decent toasty malty balance before a slightly warming bittersweet finish. A pretty assertive and enjoyable IPA.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Draught at the brewery. Deep amber with a creamy beige head. Hoppy, piney nose with a but of bread-crust. Quite bitter and piney, with a bit of bready malt thrown in. Medium, smooth body. Not bad, but straight pine bitterness never sits right with me.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2007
A mildly bitter IPA balanced by some nice sweet malt. Carbonation is low. Is very smooth.

Copper amber color with a creamy white head. Grapefruit and pine aroma and taste with a semi-dry finish.
