Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Golden pour, no head to speak of. Aroma of light malt and some piney hops. Taste the same, smooth and waxy mouthfeel. Worse than mediocre much like all these Elk Rock beers.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Bottle. Decent head after a amber hazy pour. Aroma was pine, citrus and grapefruit. Flavor was weak for an IPA. Light body, very smooth. Too smooth for an IPA.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
Caramel, grapefruit, lime and pine in the aroma. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a low off white head that recedes rapidly to a thin partial cover with some nice lacing. Fruity esters, citrus hops and caramel malt flavours are all somewhat overshadowed by buttery diacetyl. Somewhat slick in texture with moderate carbonation. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle. Bottleworks. Aug-08.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Bottle courtesy of 5000. Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of pine resin and caramel. Tastes resiny and peppery with some dry splashes on the finish.

anders37 (16895) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off-white head. Has a sweet malty aroma with some hoppy citrus hints. Sweetish malty hoppy bitter flavor with some citrus hints. Has a sweetish malty hoppy bitter finish.

boFNjackson (4143) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Bottle... Poured amber with a thin white head. Aroma was floral, hoppy and sweet with malt. This beer was much better than their amber. Not nearly as hoppy as a good pale ale would be, but enough to be a bolder session ale.

theisti (3256) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - AUG 6, 2008
12 oz bottle purchased at the Safeway in Sequim, Washington. Pour is clearish orange golden with an off white head. Aroma of faint citrus hops, perhaps a floral note in there as well. The taste is more of the same, faint citrus with a fair amount of maltiness to the backbone. Palate was thin to medium and a bit flat. Overall, a middle of the road to boring IPA.

bhensonb (11234) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Bottle. Orange tinged golden color with a fizzy beige head. Decent citrus hop aroma. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is citrus/floral hop and biscuity malt. Malt is a bit harsh, and this makes me think ESB rather than IPA. Finishes nicely bitter with malt to balance. It’s a decent drink, but doesn’t stand up to the better IPAs.

HoppyGuy (111) - Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Pours a light orange color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and malts. The taste is disappointing, as it is a melange of flavors. The malty nature overtakes the hops, which in my mind is a no-no for an IPA. This brew has a flat mouthfeel and a dull finish. This is near the bottom of my list for IPAs (if not the very bottom).
