BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle: Pours a muddy cherrywood color with a nice light head and sticky lacing. The nose is earthy and dusty with some pale malt and a pronounced rye and columbus note. The flavor is fairly bitter, not a huge body for its size. Crisp and spicy mouthfeel and a creamy herbal finish. Not my favorite combo of hops but it is rich and satisfying nonetheless.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 18, 2008
22oz bottle purchased at Belmont Station in Portland OR. The pour is a hazy light orange with a nice creamy white head. Aroma is a slightly alcoholic resiny hops. Flavor is much the same. Its good, but its not terribly interesting or very dynamic with the hops. Fairly straight forward.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 8, 2008
22oz bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a small white head, some lace. Smells very fruity sweet with hops and malts, malts are slightly dish towel. Tastes hoppy fruity sweet, very very nice. Slightly grassy and spicy, less malt on the flavor then on the nose. Medium body, good carbonation. Great beer!

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Bottle from bottletrek. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick off white head. Very nice aroma of grapefruit, loads of other citrus, and some pine. Very good flavor. The only bad thing was I just had the AleSmith Summer IPA which was better. But this is still a very good beer.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2008
22oz from Bottletrek. A nice, cloudy orange pour - not so much from anything yeasty as from just general liveliness I guess. Modest head and carbonation. The nose might be the best thing about this brew. For all the times I’ve said an IPA smells grapefruity, jack, this is some serious grapefruit here. Good thing I love grapefruit. Very crisp tasting, with slight dry (green tea?) notes in the finish. Refreshing, with very little trace of the alcohol in there. If anything, it’s a little thin and insubstantial for such a big-smelling and fairly flavorful beer. But I enjoyed the hell out of this.

ilovedarkbeer (2228) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a hazy grayish orange color with a small bone colored rocky head. Nose is green granny smith apples, and a sort of artificial fruit roll up smell, with a bit of hops. Taste is woody, dusty dry fresh ground malt, and citrus, and a bit of caramel. The bitterness is not profound and nothing really shines in this beer.
