zdk (1816) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013
tap at the brewpub - this isn’t a great IPA... Nose is a hint of floral and dusty hop cones. Body is dry and dusty and some yeast. Caramel sweetness, chewy crystalline malts finishing bitter and dry.

3fourths (8236) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2011
unfiltered gold with a soft yellow head. sweaty bacteria b-o hop nose, catty and curd-like. medium light body, soft texture, soft carbonation, but horrible flavor. cheese mold abounds.

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden yellow-orange with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of citrus, and earthy hops. Flavor is very earthy with bitter hops up front, caramel malt, and earthly malt. Not very hoppy for what they claimed to be an "authentic IPA" but great malt character. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]

fly (1419) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Pretty darn drinkable, but still seeming to need some tweeking. I met the brewer very briefly as he was running up and down stairs apparently brewing at the time. Nice guy, but I feel he has need of getting some chops down.

BeerandBlues2 (10073) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Draught. Pours clear dark yellow with a small, creamy, white head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, grain, cereal), heavy hops (flowers, citrus, pine), average yeast (sweat, soap, earth) with notes of apple and pear. Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness and acidity, moderate bitterness.

Alfonso (4) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - SEP 16, 2007 does not count
This beer was a bit of a wolf in a sheepskin. It looked ok. It smelled ok. It tasted like Eske’s patented a ’Gym Sock Filtration System.’ I honestly think the brewer does not know what the words ’pale’ or ’ale’ mean, because this beverage seemed to be neither.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Spicy hops, oxidized. Cloudy yellow color, medium head. Solid hop aroma. Very hoppy, but unbalanced

2.2
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2004
On-tap at the pub: Pale clear gold color, whispy whitish head and barely any lace sticking. Aroma is of stale and/or old hops and malts with some heavy noting of alcohol much like they Mesa Pale and has some slight fruityness and very slight citrus. taste isn’t any better unforunately. A meak and weak attempt where some flat grassy hops stint an approach of presense within the warmth of unpleasant and meagerly adjusted alcoholic warmth. Sweet but flatly so with a void of a body, thin and getting close to watery. Nothingness, hardly impressionable.

2.6
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2004
UPDATED: APR 7, 2004 Hazy, lemon yellow body and soft velvety white head. Looks like a wheat beer (?). Aroma and flavor are of grapefruit and dust. Both acidic and bitter. Off-bitterness in the finish. A very odd beer. They actually spell it "Millinium" not "Millennium" but I don't know why.

1.9
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 6/20
erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - OCT 24, 2003
I tried this at the brewery. Twice I have had this. The first time was not impressive but not bad. The second time,... well,... let's just say it was,... well shit! Some hop bitterness but the balance was horrible. There was very little flavor and the off-flavors abound. This brewer has to work on there sanitation, and there beers are lack luster to say the least.
