douglas88 (8464) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 10, 2009
On cask at the 2009 NABA in Idaho Falls. I’m not sure if this merits a new entry due to barrel aging. Anyway, pours a bright amber color with a large foamy white head. The aroma was awesome; a rich hop explosion, lots of citrus and fruitiness.I could definitely notice a smooth woodiness in the aroma and taste. The flavor was awesome; again, loads of citrus and fruity hops. Slightly bitter but very mellow. Excellent.

DuffMan (9610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2008
GABF 2008. Dark amber gold (darker than the ZZ Hop), passionfruit cascade aroma. Lots of tropical fruit and citrus oil hop character, sweet malt takes a back seat. Long bitter finish, refreshing.

DickDunnigan (26) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Growler from Ram/Parkcenter. Hazy orange color with a big off-white head. Fragrant hop aroma. Pungent bitter flavor, in a good way. Some mild malt taste, but mostly solid hoppy notes of citrus, good blend of bittering vs. flavor/aroma hops. Dry as a bone. This is a great IPA, good balance of all parts. I can’t get enough. (Too bad they raised their price for growlers, they used to charge $5, which was a steal!!)

BuckeyeBoy (6153) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2007
On tap at Boise Ram Pours out a cloudy amber topped with a nice off white cream head. Great floral hop aroma. A nice sweetness and malt along with that floral hops on the tast. A little bitter at the end pretty good. IPA

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Draft @ Ram. Standard, standard, standard. Nothing exciting about this IPA whatsoever, except its ease of drinkability. Extremely average. Sierra Nevada-esque.

jake65 (3444) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Draft @ Meridian Ram: Pours a cloudy orange with a large beige head and thick lacing. Nose of citrus and piney hops, some sweetness. Tastes rich with the citrus hops, florals, and a nice bit of maltiness. Good, solid IPA.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2006

IndianaRed (3845) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 29, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 On Tap from keg at Buch Dich’s Very hazy/cloudy medium redish amber with a sturdy thick head of light tan. Nice lasting lacing and aromas of sharp floral hops. Flavors are a strong hop slant, of course and a nice deep maly backbone. Feel is moderate and the trailer is a quite puckering bitter. Tnanks to Buck Dich for sharing this one

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - APR 20, 2005
UPDATED: APR 29, 2005 Tap @ Murphy’s seafood & steakhouse in Boise. Clear amber/copper w off white seafoam head that fell fairly quick, good lace. Aroma is fresh hops, piney & citrusy w a touch of reefer essence & light/med roast malt. Flavor is clean, bright, fresh. Light/med roast malt w nice, fresh spicey hops. Into medium bodied w nice bitterness from start to finish. Nicely balanced. Not lacking complexity. There was a slight thin/watery on the mouthfeel but its fresh, clean flavor compensated. I could have inhaled a bucket of this.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Pours a deep amber with a good tightly knit head and some nice lacing. Aroma of crystal malts and cascade hops. A very clean pallate and a very hoppy flavor. Bitterness creeps up on you and is very pleasant. A well made IPA.
