A Northwest interpretation of a classic English style, golden copper in color and loaded with New World hop flavor and aroma.

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 (621) - 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.

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 (2020) - 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 (4901) - 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.
