Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPA’s intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

3fourths (8801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2009 Has a musty, leafy and grassy nop nose; even feels acidic on the nostrils while smelling this beer. Dry and musty yeast all over this beer, with the hop presence certainly there, but it doesn’t have any juiciness or sweetness, it’s just dry and caustic from the hops. Crisp up front on the lips, musty and starchy on the back of the tongue, full of metallic hops. Really not my kind of IPA.

pivnizub (9528) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2006
Bottle: Slightly hazy, copper coloured, small foamy layer; impressive herbal to "medical" dry resinous hoppy nose with traces of sweet malt in the background; very strong dry bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, extremely well hidden alcohol; crisp, strong, dry herbal hoppy, a bit citrousy finish with a never ending bitter aftertaste. Oh, hoppy day ! Herzlichen Dank, Jonas - genau mein Geschmack...!

GABF-on tap- pours an offwhite head. Taste is light/medium citrus-grapefruit hops, upfront bang/bitter.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2006
Cloudy orange-copper body with a small white head. My tasting sampler was too small to word a meaningful deScription. I can only say that its overall earthy profile, great balance and strong “rough” bitterness was just the type of IPA that does it to me. Must get bottles of that stuff. I sure had no aversion for this Inversion.

ABUSEDGOAT (2419) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2006
on nitro tap: aroma is subdued PNW hops. Usual notes of grapefruit, pine, citrus, other fruits, caramel, blah blah. However, the nitro thing completely killed this for me. It subdued the aroma and flavor.. as well as the bitterness. I also didn’t like the nitro mouthfeel for an IPA. Basically, I thought this was a mess because of one thing.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. Flowery hop aroma. Beautiful pour w/ nice lacing. Nice fruity, citrusy hop flavor w/ a mild piney finish. A very good IPA. Nice hop presentation here.

DYCSoccer17 (3513) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 3, 2006
12 ounce bottle purchased from Nugget in Davis, CA on Mace. Nice floral, orange, citric aroma with some piney notes and some floral notes. Definitely some PNW hops in this bad boy. Very mildly hazy copper body with a nice frothy off-yellowish head. Beautiful lacing. I wish I could give this a 4.5 for appearance. Floral, mildly astringent start with some nutty maltiness in the middle that is somewhat shy. Finishes with a big dose of grapefruity hops and a relatively dry finish. I don’t know about this. The weird astringency and the dry finish just kind of turn me off.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 2, 2006
This was quite a surprise--the best yet from Deschutes. Startlingly assertive compared to their other offerings, this beer sports nice hop notes in the aroma with good bitterness and malt in the flavor and full-on body that ties it all together for a highly flavorful, drinkable experience that’s widely available.

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2006
Cask handpull at Horse Brass Pub, Portland. Chestnut, disappearing off white head. Slightly earthy hop aroma. Smooth in aroma. Has some depth, just not sure where the malt is going. Great grapefruit, tropical fruit earth finish. Some toffee on the malt. Nice fruit as well in mouth. Interesting.

An okay IPA but not nearly as good as there HopHenge IPA. Really weak in the nose and attack departments. Finishes rather well though.
