Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Poured a clear reddish amber with a white head that dissipated to the edges and laced nicely. Aroma was had a light pine hop with a good amount of grapefruit and resin with a bread backbone. Flavor started with pine and was joined by grapefruit with a bit of resin and a light bread backbone.

LilBeerDoctor (3737) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and floral hops. Flavor of sweet malt and light fruits. Sweeter and not as hoppy as the other Bobcat IPA (Falconer’s Flight) I got to sample. But still pretty good overall. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Draft at the brewpub - Pours a slightly hazy medium amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is citrus/pine hoppy with the slightest of malt structure. Flavor is fairly citrus/grapefruit hoppy and medium bitter. Bitterness lingers into the finish. Just an average IPA, but very drinkable...

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 In short: A toasted, caramelized and piney-citrusy golden IPA. Clean and pleasant. Archetypical example of the style.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Clear golden body topped by a persistent small off-white head.
In long: Nose is typical basic American golden IPA. citrusy hops, piney notes, a certain toastiness. The hopping comes out a lot stronger in mouth than in the aroma and the roles are reversed with the pine-tree coming out stronger than the citrus fruits. A nice toasted caramelized cereals backbone. A very clean IPA offering a solid long-lasting bitterness and a strong toastiness creating a dry sensation in the finish. Unoriginal but quite enjoyable. Nice beer to session during a quiet evening in Bristol Vermont, and is there another type of evening in Bristol Vermont?

muzzlehatch (4773) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Pint at the brewpub. Clear light bronze with a small diminishing head...juicy, fruity nose leant interest by the touches of whiskey and vanilla late...body on the dryish side, with a pleasant peachy-apple undertone throughout....intense, mouthpuckering bitterness at the finish, with faint woody notes...nice, balanced, drinkable IPA with a delicate butter-cookie sweetness late helping to keep it from roughing you up too much...
