porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Pours a light amber color. Big citrusy hop aroma. Big a nd blanced malt to hop flavor. Rather citrusy and a dry mouthfeel. Some hints of toasted malts. A pretty solid IPA.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
Slight haze, light orangy amber. Nice hop aroma. Hoppy flavour with a good bitterness. A simple but good IPA.

adrian910ss (2361) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Pours a light coppery color with a small white head. Smell can best be described as hops and faint pine needles. Tastes hoppy with a slight detection of pine needles and carbonation. Has a nice bite to it. An above average IPA.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Remarkably clear golden appearance. Mild honey tea aroma with lemon and grapefruit citrus. Fairly moderate palate sweet honey-ish flavor at first to grapefruit bitterness especially noticeable in the aftertaste. A reliable IPA that doesn’t challenge the greats of its style but would certainly challenge the palate of newbies.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2009 Still and clear orange, but with an observable foam topping. Orange-soap aroma. But then comes the teeth-grinding hop crunch. Orangey, grassy and rindy. Pretty damn good. <<Draft at Humpy’s June 2009 -- still pretty damn good .. copper, laced, creamsicley .. acidic ... nice. >>

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2005
sticky citrus aroma with notes of black pepper, light orange/copper hue, sticky hops with substantial bitterness and a resinous finish

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Yet another northwest American IPA. I guess I’m a sucker for this style, though, since I continue to rate these beers higher than raters whose opinions I trust more than my own. Cloudy orange with a good white head and decent lacing. Lots of bitterness, lots of grapefruit hops, decent malt for balance. Nothing remarkable, simple rather than complex, but immensely pleasant. I guess the American IPA and the Willamette hops just work for me.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Bottle, bomber: Cloudy orange/amber with a large frothy head and decent carbonation. Aromas of sweet hops, lemon/orange, grapfruit, grains. Flavor was of powerful cascade hops balanced nicely with smoother caramel malts. Long drying aftertaste. An enjoyable beer.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Draft at the Abbaye. Hazy golden ale, no head, thin lace. Starts off like a classic american IPA: juicy hops covering a malt base. Finishes with a slightly soapy aftertaste.

maltdog (619) - Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Bomber bottle. Pours average amber/orange with vigorous bubbles, decent head, and very slight haze. Add one point for the phenomenal sheetlike lacing. Aroma screams GRAPEFRUIT; also suggestions of salt, Swiss cheese, and campfire embers. Flavor of resiny, cedary hops. There’s a flash of really good New York style pizza crust before the woody, peppery finish storms in. Palate is actually on the light side. Aftertaste is a little rough…like chewing on a hop pellet…long lasting and almost Orval-like. Overall, fairly one-dimensional and unbalanced/overhopped.
