raphael (915) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 9, 2006
milder hop aroma, less dense & resiny, almost flowery, but still some bitter notes. light in texture as well, with an orangish straw color, slightly cloudy, and white but thin head. hop flavor slightly fishy, dances nicely on the tongue, clean & crisp, cept that lingering oil. hop chorus well balanced otherwise

hopscotch (9518) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo ’06... Mostly clear, golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Floaties distributed sparsely throughout the brew. Excellent retention. The nose delivers very subtle notes of grapefruit and pine. The flavor is full of chewy malts and juicy hops. Toffee, caramel and a marriage of tropical and citrus fruits. Medium-bodied and ultra-creamy with moderate carbonation. Lengthy, tingly, bitter finish. Thanks, kenb, for shipping the bottle my way!

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2006
bomber via trade trade with Buck Dich - Pours a clear amber color with a nice size off white head that quickly fades to a film. Nice lacing. Has a toasty malt, light citrus hop aroma. Flavor is bitter with some residual malt sweetness and citrus hop. A smooth, medium body beer. Good beer. Thanks Jordan.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2006
22oz bottle via trade with kenb! - Thanks Ken! - pours amber with a big offwhite head that stays pretty well and laces the sides of the glass. Nice aroma of grapefruit and pine over caramel malts. Flavor contains lots of hop flavors, grapefruit, pine, some pineapple, and a touch of malt, biscuit and caramel. Pretty well balanced and an easy drinker. The beer is well carbonated but not overly so. Medium body. I enjoyed this one.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Nice amber/orange color,large white head that had a good hang time then faded slowly to leave a bit of a lcae behind.The aroma was citrusy with a bit of pine and plenty of hops coming through.The flavor was pretty decent as well with a nice malty side some faint sweetnes at first then it changes to a nice bitterness plenty of ctrus taste with a light piney note and a good bitter bite in the end.Pretty decent brew all around and well worth trying again.

locarboy (129) - USA - AUG 28, 2006
From 22oz. bottle. Poured light burnish copper color with fluffy head that laced down the glass as I drank it. Unusual citrus, mandarin like aroma. Hop flavor is up front, citrus, almost boardering on catty. The Malt holds up and is sweetish in the finish. The sweet finish seems not only to be with the malt but has some hop component, too. There is a lot going on here. I swear I’ve tasted something like this before. Maybe it was an orange soda followed by a can of Schlitz with a carmel to follow. Interesting enough to be liked.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Draught at the Parkway Tavern Day of IPAs. Pours pale amber. Medium body, tastes sweet with a bittersweet oaky finish. Another unusual interpretation of the IPA style.

after4ever (6251) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Draft at the Parkway’s Day of IPAs. Gold body, thin white head. No nose, still body. Sweet palate, some vanilla in there, even. Cloying finish. Good, despite the fact that it’s *not* refreshing; unusual if not unacceptable for an IPA.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2006
12oz bottle pours golden copperish with a thin white head. Light floral and hoppy aromas. Flavors were citrussy and carmelly, with a lightly bitter finish.
