Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Medium gold with a thin, fine head. Earthy hops aroma with some malt and yeast--quite a dark, almost musky, aromatic hops profile. Very clear hops flavors with little malt. Some restrained vegetal hops flavors with good bitterness and some nice resinous qualities. Good mouth feel with assertive, mouth-coating bitterness.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Bright pale gold in color with a fizzy, foamy white head. Aroma is starch, grapefruit, honey dew, chamomile, lilacs and honey. Bold, paling hops at first touch. Intense, then reverting to a starchy scratchiness paired with an herbal mixed bag of lilies, carnations, daffodils and old pine needles. Encompassing bitterness and medium-bodied. Malts aren’t succinct but the hops pursued their mission nonetheless. Finishes with high bitterness and twanging sweet papaya.

adrian910ss (2561) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2005
Pours a medium copper color with a nice full white head. Smells of pine needles and citrus. Tastes citrusy, with a grapefruit prominence. Very similar to stone ipa and bells two hearted ale, yet lacking in the bite that those 2 have. Overall, an excellent ipa.

fordest (2386) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - JUL 24, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 Draft at San Diego Brewing Co. Poured typical golden yellow with a decent head that left decent lacing. Aromas of grapefruity citrusy hops and flavors of the same. Maybe just a little watery on the flavor, but still a very tasty IPA.

BeerandBlues2 (11971) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Bottle at The Avery Experience. Light orange to golden with a tall rocky white head; lined lacing. Fragrant floral hop aroma with pine and grapefruit notes. Pine and citrus rind acidic resiny flavor with a roasted grain caramel malt body. Light to medium bodied and fizzy.

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 So far, the least favorite of the IPA’s I’ve tried. Too much of the "piney hops" for my taste. Overly harsh and bitter with them. Color is a nice gold, nice lacing white head, but aroma tips off piney hops, and the taste grabs you and says "something’s not quite right here". II’ve enjoyed a number of different IPA’s and 2IPA’s, but not this one.

Ratman197 (12946) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Bottle poured golden with an off white head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Flavors of pine and earthy hops, a hint of biscuits, with a bitter finish.

jgentgesdo (692) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Pours cloudy yellow with thin white head that quickly diminishes leaving good lacing. Nose is floral, piney hops with a touch of sweet caramel. The flavor is resinous with citrus notes - grapefruit predominates, some lime (which is rare), very slight malt character throughout. I am also reminded of the quinine like bitterness of tonic water. Coats the tongue with refreshing bitterness at the end. Overall pretty good.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUL 16, 2005

nick76 (4370) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Even though IPA’s are not my style I enjoyed this one. The aroma is strong with hop smells that include flowers as well as cedar and citrus. Some sweet malt smells as well. It is a dark golden color that is slightly hazy. The flavor is bitter as expected but does have a nice malt component as well. Finish is nice with toasted malt and hops.
