sloth (2489) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Nice pour, nice head, nice sticky lace. Big hoppy nose, piney, citrusy, earthy and pungent. Full bodied and chewy. Aggressive hopping with solid malt backing. Dry, big, bitter finish. A solid IPA. Nice.

illkarate (115) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2008
22oz bottle, poured a nice peachy-gold color, off-white head, nice carbonation. Flavors of pine resin, citrus - the Amarillo hops are are at the forefront of the hop blast. Not totally crazy about this IPA, but it is definitely drinkable.

Bomber poured a hazy orange with a lasting amber head and good lacing. Aromas of carmel, pine, earthiness, grapefruit and tangerines. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, grapefruit and light pine with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

Thanks to Juancho. Drank it in Panajechel, Guatemala. Pours an orange color with a white head. Light bodied, aromas of pine and citrus, well balanced, nice long finish.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Pours a transparent bright golden with a pillowy white head and nice lacing. Aroma of fairly fresh, piny hops and a touch of sweet pale malt. Body starts fairly full and lightly sweet with a good resiny hop bitterness and flavor throughout before a dry, crisp, slightly peppery finish. A pretty nice IPA.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Shared bomber with CelticBrew, doboy, and Steve E. on 8/2/08. My friends (???!!!) urged me to hurry up and enter this rating today, so here goes.

Aroma - Big hoppy aroma of pine and spice as well as the obligatory citrus, honey and toffee trail behind as a reminder that at least some malt was used.

Appearance - Hazy orange pour with a large white head and copious, sticky lace.

Flavor - Grapefruit bitterness right off the bat, lingering as a veil over a base of honey like malt flavors.

Palate - Medium body and carbonation, resinous, very dry palate with a long satisfying finish.

Overall - A classic West Coast style IPA, and a very well done example.

Great hop aroma hit my nose with this first beer of an 11 beer sample session with Steve, CelticBrew and the infamous DrBayern, who I am sure ahs waited to be review #10!!!! It poured slightly cloudy with a nice light lacy head. The first taste gave a nice bite of hops, and the finish was equally as refreshing! An Olympic Gold Medal Winner at MY games!! And NOW, DrBayern may impart his words of wisdom!!!!!

CelticBrew (792) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Shared with DrBayern, DoBoy and Steve. 22 oz bomber poured a hazy golden color, forms nice off white foamy head. Aroma was of hops and wet forrest grass. Flavour was of a hop bomb, tons of it. Extremely bitter with a nice citrus accent which blends itself to a near smoothness that teases your palate. Incredible beer!

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Hazy orange pour with off-white head. Nose is heavy tropical fruity and resiny hops, fruit, honeydew, mango, caramel malt, spicy yeast. Rich and thick on the palate, with tons of hops, tropical fruit, and malt flavors intermingling perfectly. The finish is hoppy, assertive, and smooth. This is a top tier IPA, and I daresay it should be kicked into the IIPA category.

Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2008
On Tap @ Rogue in Portland. Hazy copper, with a thick orange tinged head. Wonderful hoppy citrus aroma, like a good whiff of fresh grapefruit. Hazy and thick. One of Rogue’s very best. Nice sweetness balanced deftly by copious hops. This one is a keeper. Anyone know ABV ??
