Pours a nice amber in color. There was no head to speak of. Taste is decent amount of hops, but they were a tad bit subdued. Easy drinking and went down real smooth, just not a standout beer. Disappointing in the head and hop bite. Good, clean mouthfeel.

On tap at the brewpub. Medium gold body with a large, slightly off white head. The aroma was grapefruit with some toast and walnuts. The taste was grapefruit with some flowers and sweet citrus in the finish. A decent mild IPA was that was closer to an English than a US version.

krautdog (15) - Gimmelstümph, GERMANY - APR 8, 2008
I had this on tap at the brewpub, served in an imperial pint glass. It was a nice copper color, nice head retention and actually tasted pretty good. It’s more in the style of a traditional British IPA, not the hop bombs typical of the American versions that I usually drink so, this one was a nice change of pace.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Sampler draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy amber with a thin beige head. The aroma is big piny hops and caramel. Light to medium-bodied slick and fairly soft with a moderately bitter finish. The flavor is a sweet caramel malt front with piny resinous hops quickly stealing the show. A pretty tasty IPA and one that I think is pretty under-rated.

On tap @ the Brew pub: Pours a hazy copper color with virtually no head. Aroma, herbal hop notes, some citrus as well. Flavor, herbal and earthy, some light citrus notes as well, hints of pale malts, just not very good.

Had on draft at the brew pub. I dont really like IPA’s, they are my least favorite style currently. With that said, this one was quite drinkable. Citrus and malt up front, and the old hoppy bitterness on the finish.

Growler acquired in trade with Sephiroth (big thanks for shipping a Growler out!). Poured a medium amber color with a very small sized off white head. Aroma of earth, pine and citrus. Husky. Tastes of pine and grapefruit. Thinner body. Medium bitter finish.

TomDecapolis (4501) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Thanks to hopdog for sharing this growler. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma of piney/earthy hops, some caramel malt and an odd soapy thing going on. Flavor of pine and some grapefruit, some malts and a lingering hop bitterness. A little on the thin side.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - DEC 28, 2006
On tap.
Pours a lightly hazy orange-yellow with small white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is surprisingly sweet with a dash of citrus and some pine. Flavor is a very sharp bitterness that verges on dish-soap bitter that clashes with the ample malt sweetness instead of the two complementing each other. Strange. Sticky palate verges on cloying. Something’s a bit off here and I can’t quite put a finger on it; yet it’s still a pretty OK beer.
