Nice cloudy amber color in the glass. Not a hops monster, but very well balanced. Citric and fruit flavors, finishes clean with a slight carmel taste. Very nice middle of the road IPA.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Bottle: Slightly hazy orange pour with a medium white head. Aroma, oranges, some traces of sweetness, and a bit of citrus. Flavor, citrusy, some pale malts, quite sweet. Odd bitterness, refreshing though.

Tap at the brewery. Pours a dark golden yellow with a light to medium head, good lacing. Sweet aroma, hints of citrus. Sweet citrus flavor, good hop-ness. Good bitter finish, no illusion here!

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Thanks illinismitty. Pours with a golden orange body topped by a thick head with lots of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and hoppy with nice grapefruit notes and an underlying pine note with a touch of malt. The flavor is slightly sweet and malty quickly turning bitter and hoppy with notes of pine and grapefruit. Medium bodied, smooth and a touch warming.

mkgrenwel (577) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Nice golden orange pour with a full head. Aroma isn’t too strong, but hints at floral, citric hops. Watery and thin. Some hop bitterness, not much flavor. Lacking a lot in the malt department. Possibly a band-aid flavor, as well as metal in there somewhere. Overcarbonated. Quite the disappointment.

Bottle obtained in a trade with Illinismitty... thanks Sean! Pours a clear, golden color with a medium head and very sticky lacing. Aroma is light and fruity with a slight hop hint that comes through in the back. Flavor is hoppy and piney with a slightly dry finish. Pretty good beer that I could definitely site and drink two or three of in a sitting! Thanks again Sean!

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2006
12oz bottle via trade as a bonus with Notalush - Thanks Brandon! - Pours amber with a short white creamy head that stays well and laces the glass. Aromas of apricot, and light grapefruit over light caramel malts. Flavor is lots of apricot, some definite grapefruit at times. Good malt background with some sweet caramel and some grainy notes as well. Fairly bitter on the finish. Palate is light and well carbonated. Pretty clean feeling IPA overall. Very well balanced and quite drinkable

12 oz. bottle. Best before Oct 06. Poured out a medium straw / light amber color. Has a thin white head, but hung on for the ride to the bottom of the glass. Aromas are of malts, some fruitiness as well. Hops make a major appearance. Flavors are of sweet malts, slight brown sugar, apricots. Medium mouthfeel, decent body. Good IPA in my book.
