slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a rocky white head atop a bright ruby red body, orange at the thinner parts of the glass. Aroma is a mixed bag of malt and hops, pine and citrus with caramel and biscuit undertones. Flavor opens bready with a very reserved hop character in the middle of the palate, opening up to a strong bitterness that lingers. Very well-layered with fruity yeast notes interplaying against a great malt/hop balance. Mouthfeel is thick at first, drying and thinning as the bitterness takes over. A very fine IPA.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Dark reddish bronze, good head formation. Definitely piney and grapefruity, resiny, with fresh bread elements too. Long lasting clingy head, the head flavor is extremely bitter in a harsh, green way that is just tasty as hell. A solid IPA, drinkable yet intense enough to keep things interesting. Locals Tis the Season #1 from dkachur!.

Bottle thanks to Butters. Clear reddish caramel color with a thick creamy finger of white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of spicy citrus hops. Taste is more spicy pine hoppiness and a crisp pale malt backbone.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2008

dalekliz (899) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Bottle, sampled at RBSG 08. Pours a clear, orange-amber with a thick, foamy, white head. Sweet hoppy aroma, with a lot of pine and nice malt notes. Taste is bitter, of pine hops. Lingering pine bitterness. Tasty IPA.

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2008
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.
