Amber pour. Nose is full of hops and pale malts. The hops are citrusy and a tad fruity. Flavor is really hoppy, more than I expected. This brew is done very well.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Draft and bottle- oh yeah. This one is so nice, I wish I had more. It has that lovely harvest ale kick to it as some of the hops are grown on premises and used in the beer. This adds a really nice depth and level of flavor. Piney notes also contribute, with a subtle bitterness, and great malt backbone that lingers in the end. Well balanced, and extremely drinkable.

one of my first reviews from the brewery: Deep amber pour... head is on the short side, but long lasting - a light, almost sandy white. Lacing sticks the the glass all the way down. Light, floral hops... could be a little more aromatic and crisp, but the aroma present is a nice one. Round hop flavours... but very well-balanced all around. Citrus, herbal. Some sweetness in the body. One of the better local IPAs I’ve had the pleasure of tasting. Beautiful... slippery, but not quite oily. Glides through the mouth, just shy of leaving behind a sticky residue, which makes for an overall smooth drink. Nice attributes, it’s definitely one to be followed up with more. With a start like this, Blue Mountain could make for one of the finer breweries on the East coast.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Alraomon. Pours a cloudy amber with a huge 3 finger marshmallow head that leaves spotty delicate lacing. Nose is grassy hops and malt. Taste is much hoppier than the aroma let on. Malt upfront with citrus hops dominating before giving way to a resin hop finish. Medium mouth feel. A very nice, drinkable IPA. Thanks Sean!

hopscotch (9997) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Bottle... RBSG ‘08... Clear, light amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head that lasts forever. Tropical fruit asserts itself in the aroma. Medium-bodied with stale carbonation. Definitely leans on the bitter side of balance. This one really bites back!

bhensonb (12138) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 4, 2008
60 IBU!!!! Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Amber color with a decent white head. Aromas of lightly roasted caramel, florality and fruitiness. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is roast malt with resin, floral and fruit hop. The bitter seems to come from roasted malt as much as from hop. It’s nicely bitter, and finishes arguably balanced. It’s tasty, and I wouldn’t turn down another. Fresh hoppiness with each mouthful.

Naka (714) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Courtesy of Juart. Pours a clear amber color with some red-orange hues. A thick foamy beige head that leaves a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is citrus and floral. Very sweet. The taste has a lot of spicy bitter flavors up front. A resiny hop taste with a citrus bitter that lingers on the back of the tongue. Some dirty caramel flavors in the background. The texture is sort of creamy because of the carbonation, but I don’t feel it fits well with the flavor. Lacks a little bit of balance.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2008
RBSG ’08: Poured a clear gold color with a white head. Light citrus and caramel aroma and flavor. Not much complexity or big flavors going on.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Draft. Clear, deep amber with an off white head. Nice piney nose, grapefruit and caramel. Resinous pine flavors, nice grapefruit rind bite. A good brew.

on tap-pours a rich off white head and amber color. Aroma is citrus/pine, some medium malt. Taste is citrus/pine/earthy hops-some bitter, secondary medium malt-caramel. Medium body. Soft carbonation.
