"Eh. Average iPa at best. Nice use of floral cascade hops but otherwise very simple and Unassuming. Pleasant enough, but nothing special.............."

Bottle: Clear copper color with a small head and white ring around the edge. Carbonation seems pretty lively. Hoppy aroma but not huge, a little skunk, and wet grass. Flavor pretty well balanced. Hops up front with a maltier aftertaste than most IPA’s. I did notice a floral character in the flavor as well. Ok, I like a more in your face IPA than this.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Vibrant straw, lively carbonation, large pillowy white head, nice lacing.   Looks tasty.   Pale citrus rind on the nose, subtle hops.   A little stale on the tongue, decent malt background, barnish, but the hop aspect is minor.   Decent body, fairly sticky mouthfeel.   Biting, but almost not in a hoppy sense.   Feels more of a Pale than an IPA.   Mild sweetness.   Quick finish.   Tiz okay, but overall a bit too light.

Sulfur in the aroma, reminds me a bit of a lager. Taste has some honey, floral, bitterness.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
light hoppy and malt aroma. Pours a pale copper, nice foamy white head. Mid range hops, some alcohol in the finish. Light body.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Draught at the brewhouse in Redmond. Dark gold to pale amber with a very stable head. The aroma is mostly dank, fruity, grapefruit peel hops that come off pretty fresh, but there is also an odd, unclean, alcoholic edge that muddles things a little. Resiny hop flavor quickly leads to a rough, astringently bitter finish that doesn’t really have and malt for balance. The body is thin and astringent, leaving an uncomfortable feeling. Bitterness needs to be scaled back significantly here.

raphael (915) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Mix of citrus and skunky hops, though a definite pale malt presence, which continues in the flavor, hopes on the harsh side but not intensely so. Good weight in the mouth. Quite yellow with a foamy head that lasts and laces. Dry bitter finish.

NickVega (154) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2010
Overly bitter with minimal aroma, tastes like a heavy bitter blond ale. 22oz bottle.

dogfish120love (1001) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 30, 2009
pours orange in color with a very thin white head. Smells of citrus and floral aroma. Undoubtedly not exceptional. The hops almost taste slightly stale. This batch may be nearing it’s prime

On draft at Belmont station. Pours golden with white head. Tastes like citrus, grapefruit, pine. Solid malt backbone with hoppiness.
