IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - OCT 24, 2006
Deep amber/orange color with active carbonation. A massive thick, sculptable foamy tan head leaves patches of lacing on the glass. Typical wonderful hoppy IPA scent with pine and grapefruit rinds. A brisk, cleansing bitterness up front with just a hint of caramel sweetness appearing before giving way to a lingering bitter follow. A solid offering in the crowded IPA field. Itís been so long, Iíve forgotten who to thank for this but I think itís BuckDich.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 18, 2006
bottle from sams in chicago

copper with a white head that is long lasting as a rim around the glass. nose medium hops, not much grapefruit bot some More of the grainy part of hops. the taste is full, more hops than in the nose but again, more of those grains. add some malts and this goes from mediocre to great.

harrisoni (14610) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2006
On tap at Elysian, Seattle. Copper, lasting beige head. Very drinkable. Aromatic amarillo hops. Nice hop up front on aroma, not outrageous, then they kick in. Itís ridiculously drinkable. Hops are intense, but more aromatic than some IPAs. Some bitterness, not sweet or sticky and quite clean.

lukin013 (215) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Pours a dark orange copper color. Fluffy off-white head with good lacing. Heavy citrus nose. Flavor is excellently balanced between citrus hops and sweet toffee malts. Very thick and creamy mouthfeel different from most IPAs. Very unique and very delicious. Thanks to Indiana_Red for the bottle.

ornage body with yellow highlights.nice foamy white head that left nice webbing on the glass.light citurs hop aroma with a good malt backbone.flavor was a mix of the aroma.along with some lemon and pine.not overloaded with hops as some ipaís are,but it has just enough to keep you interested.this is very well balanced and is a nice drinking experience for sure.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Bottle. Small white lasting head. Golden orange colour, slightly hazy. Slightly citrusy aroma, reminded me of tangerines. Balanced flavour, not heavily hoppy like many IPAs. Almost like a Cape ale. Crisp finish, again like a Cape ale. Good with braai, sushi or a session after a long day.

patrick767 (3714) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2006
tap at the brewpub - Pours golden and lightly hazy with a thin, lasting head. Thereís a good citrus hops aroma and a better hoppy taste thatís well balanced by some caramel malts. Enjoy the crisp, hoppy finish. Very good IPA.

Ughsmash (7270) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Bomber. Poured a clear medium golden with a short-lived cap of off-white head. Nose was quite fragrant with dried pine needles, grass, spiked caramel, and some pink grapefruit. Very, very bitter in the flavor department and on the palate... primarily of fresh pine needles and lesser grapefruit... tacky caramel base couldnít quite hold it up. Bitter pine finish with a bit too much overt alcohol in there. Decent IPA.

jonas (6001) - Garching b. MŁnchen, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2006
Bottle. Hazy amber, low creamy head. Grassy and peachy hop aroma. Very well balanced - ok chewy body and quite present aromatic hops. Very nice.
