Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2007
Poured into a pint glass thanks to (Drink4satan) with a cloudy, fine particle, hazy amber colour and minimum head. Lasting head. Aroma is grapfruite bitter citrus hops and floral. Initial taste is hoppy slight malts with a full body. Carbonation is minimum and it compensates the beer well. The palate to the aftertaste is bitter and lasting. The palate in this case is pretty good.

This beer pours a nice clear orange color with a moderate head that fades very quick. It starts out a bit tangy in taste and then quickly fades to a smoother more floral flavor. The after taste is not very potent but it tis there and you can taste mild hops and some tart.

On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. One of my all time favorite iPA’s. Crisp, Citrus not overbearing like some grapefruit bombs recently released. Aromatic & delicious

Stine (1746) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2007
Slightly cloudy pale bronze color, lasting layer of creamy froth. Wet, white pine aroma precedes clementine and lush wildflowers. Lovely. Tastes of ripe, juicy orange, cedar, tea leaves. Bitter and dry floral finish. Quietly assertive palate. Calmly intelligent and a very fine representative.

BREWMUSKCLES (2538) - New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2007
a california ipa. my favorite type in the world. just a wonderful combination of honey cream and fruit combined with a piney, cirtusy, complex character that is magnificent. no wonder you west coasters are so mellow it’s damn tedious! this is very good!

hapjydeuce (996) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 13, 2007
A good impersonation of what a standard Cali IPA should be. Nice vanilla colored head and beautiful dark golden color. Slightly floral in the aroma, but nothing spectacular. Hops bitterness was well balanced with the malts, with a nicely carbonated finish.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 12, 2007
Solid brew from B.Republic. Very crisp and i like the hop combination. Very drinkable and just an all around good beer for any time of the day.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2007
From a bottle poured a creamy and coating thin off white head atop a tawny-copper body. Bright and comforting fruity hopped nose that lead perfectly into the first taste and maintained as the beer warmed. Full-bodied creamy balance. One of the most inspiring west coast IPAs in a while! Great finish with hints of caramel, citrus and pure joy. very very enjoyable beer!

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2007
22oz bottle. Aroma: Huge hop aroma with a loads of pine, resin, and fruit (grapefruit, peach, pineapple). The faintest whiff of malt behind all that hop. Appearance: Light Amber in color and slightly hazed. Off-white head was full and foamy with good retention. Good lacing. Flavor: A light bready malt with a touch of caramel, and then the hops kick in with a strong dose of pine and resin. Followed closely by grapefruit, pineapple, and peach. Some grass into the finish. Bitterness bites nicely, but isn’t excessive. Very dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Solid West Coast IPA. Packed full of hops, but doesn’t kill you with bitterness. Really enjoyed it.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2007 22 oz. bottle - strong aromas and inch head upon pouring; golden in color with strong hops; slightly bitter; new (and higher) impression after enjoying on tap at the mystic theater
