Golden body with a white head. Light aroma, hops are there with some fruit. IPA taste is light, some grain. Rather bland ending.

Hazy carbonated amber, frothy creamy off-white head. Faint hoppy aroma. Thick mouthfeel, very hoppy flavour with some malts. Bread-like. And in response to Riverís rating... I do like licking envelopes.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This IPA is a cloudy, golden color with a white head. It has a sweet, almost citrusy aroma with a creamy, bitter flavor and a touch of spice and sweetness. I was a bit disturbed by the combination hoppy and envelope-adhesive-esque aftertaste.

This is a good IPA. Plenty of frothing as the head formed and lacing. The color is a light gold. The hops were well balanced with the malt. The citrus flavors were evident with moderate bitterness. This was purchased at the Caboose in Ashland.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2007 Pour a light amber with a small head, looks nothing like cat-piss. Aroma is cat-piss. Flavor is cat-piss, with a touch of cat-piss, and lots of cat-piss in the finish. Leaves you with a strong taste of cat-piss. Did I mention this beer tastes and smells exactly like cat-piss? This is literally the single worst beer Iíve ever had. I canít tell if its excess cascade hops without the malt to balance it or if its a brett infection. It was crystal clear and relatively fresh, so Iím doubting the brett infection. Its just so cat pissy I canít stand it. Well, I paid $8.00 for this six pack which 5 of 6 are going into the garbage, so I feel its my duty to tell the world how much this beer tastes like cat piss. Exactly like cat-piss, thatís how much this beer tastes like cat-piss.

I thought this was a tastey little IPA. A smooth IPA with some real malts. Although quite floral on the nose and grapefruity on the palate. Had it in a bottle at Brickskeller.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Brickskeller. Clear rich dark yellow color, almost orange in color. Sweet oily hops, reminding me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Very slightly tinny in the nose, with more of a rich honey character. Crisp, fresh tasting, flavors of honey and herbs, oily, resiny hops. Oily but then frothy on the palate. Overall a respectable IPA.
