scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Shimmering gold, fizzy white head. The aromas played out with juicy citrus, grains, and nutty caramel, with subtle tones of a earth and bread. An up front soft candied citric hop bitterness gets balanced nicely in the end with the sweet nutty caramel malt. Just about medium bodied, medium carbonation, drying, bittersweet, citric finish. Nice easy drinking session IPA...

shadey (1882) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Hazy bright orange color with white creamy head. Smooth enticing hop aroma. Not sharp or overly strong. Very smooth over the tongue. Exceptionally well balanced. Hops are obviously present but they play well with the strong malt presence. Begs to be guzzled.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2005
This was a nice brew in that I like an IPA that has a soft hop aroma at yet still is very pleasant.I was with some non-hopheads and some of them still thought it was to much.I actually liked this a lot.The taste was mellow and left a good bitter bite on the back of my throat.

presario (4608) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2005
Gold carbonated. Delicious hop blend aroma. Solid and easy drinking. Not a big finish.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2005
Orangey color & citrusy aroma. Chewy, piney hops with some balancing malts. A bit of a metallica aftertaste. A good, but not great IPA.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2005
The aroma is grapefruit and sweet pine hops. Pours a medium copper body with a sticky white foam. I also noticed a buttery smell just before sipping. The flavor is bitter piney hops with a nice malt backbone and a buttery finish. Very interesting.

Shag (2598) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 3, 2005
More good beer brought down by 21Iceman40 and lilkem. Mad props yall. Well this was a "late in the evening rating" A cloudy orange appearance. A very citrusy and malty aroma. I catch alot of grapefruit in this one. Cascade hop fest for sure. It was quite hoppy and bitter. I could see me having this one again.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Less impressive than The Wise. Amber/copper body, off-white head. Citrus/hops aroma was more subtle than The Wise. Thinner. The flavor was more a watered down IPA.

egajdzis (5302) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2005
UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 Poured a light copper color with a medium sized, off white head, that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of cereal, grapefruit, light pine, light butter, and sweet caramel. Taste of citrusy fruits (apricot!), caramel, toasted malt, short bitter finish. Average mouthfeel, a quick drinking, refreshing IPA.
