bu11zeye (12679) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2008
(22oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a cloudy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of herbs, florals, toasted grain, and clove. Flavor of mild hops (floral, earthy, herbal, light pine) and caramel malt.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Bomber. Clear, coppery light amber with a fluffy off-white head that leaves firm, concentric rimgs of lace. Big sweet aroma of citrus and spice. Creamy medium body, moderate carbonation. Citrus, bread and toffee taste. Pine/floral finish, but it also seems just a bit soapy.

ABUSEDGOAT (2564) - California, USA - SEP 5, 2008
Amber color, moderate to large head with excellent lacing and retention. Seriously, the lacing has possessed the glass. Aroma is a citric bomb, I’m guessing Columbus hops. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, quite drinkable. Decent, but I’ll take a Racer 5 now.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 4, 2008
22oz bottle from BevMo Mission Valley. Pours a medium orange amber with a nice frothy off white head. Nose was bursting with citrus fruits and pine. A subtle malt backbone gave way to more hoppy madness. A very underrated beer.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Medium orange-amber with a thick, puffy, off-white head. Full aroma of dark citrus and resiny hops along with sweet malt and alcohol. Flavor is full of dense bitterness, caramelized citrus peel malt. Big, clunky body with a huge malt presence and alcohol in a warm finish. Not berfectly balanced but not necessarily out of balance. Somewhat one-dimensional double IPA.

dwyerpg (5536) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 28, 2008
An absolutely wonderful floral aroma. This is really nice. Relatively smooth considering the abundance of hops throughout. Not overly bitter. Excellent.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Bottle. Light amber color, thin white layer of head. Grassy hops, biscuity malts underneath, a hint of cardboard. Hops had an old musky astringency and doesn’t mix well over the malts. Kind of murky.

riversideAK (6098) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Strong floral aroma with light pine and a touch of grapefruit skin. Pours a hazy golden tone with a gigantic head. Sweet and malty initially followed by a strong hoppy bitterness. Floral and piney, a little astringent. Lots of floral perfumey bitterness lingers in the mouth.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Big-time drink for serious IPA-fans only. Cloudy golden body with a huge billowing head. Moderate caramel sweetness with a very nice bready malt character. Floral hops all over the place with a good pine component and light citrus tones. Full bodied, creamy smooth mouthfeel. Everything you want out of a PNW IPA. Glad I picked this one up.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2008
bright leafy pine hop aroma, more pale than most iipas and an aggressive stark white head. maybe it’s the suggestive title, but i love how this beer has that full whole leaf character. it’s not as oily as others, but full bodied and stands out more with the paler malt base. beers with this quality can fall sharply, but this beer rides the wave consistently. very very nice.
