Bottle: I’ve never seen a dark IPA before. Pours clear brownish/amber with a thin white head that dissipates. Smells fresh like an early spring morning in a dewy meadow. Light body and slippery mouthfeel. Finishes bitter but not overpowering.

dmschefke (570) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Pours a slightly amber orange with thin white head, minimal lacing. Aroma nice of citrus and slight floral hops, decent malt backbone, pine, and grass. Flavor comes together nicely, but ends up a little thin for my liking.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2009
Bottle. Gold with a thin white head. Aroma is a little odd, definite chinese food with a hint of manure and rubber. Odd as that sounds it was pretty nice smelling. Obvious hop presence, dry and spicy with a slight hint of garlic perhaps? Quite different for an IPA and nice enough.

CanIHave4Beers (3351) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Nice copper color with a big fluffy white head with plenty of lace. Nice citrus aromas, with some pine sap, and some grainy malt. Flavor is lemony and citrusy, the bitterness is not terribly intense but is certainly present. Nice caramel flavors, along with some floral notes. Not too bad.

bburychka (55) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2009
A very good IPA. Just a touch of bitterness, but otherwise one of the better ones that I’ve had so far.

Nihon (247) - Vernon, Connecticut, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Clear light amber color. Floral lightly citrus aroma, strong acidic hops dominate. First sip was like a punch in the face(maybe I’ve been drinking some weak IPAs lately?), very strong bitter hop flavor, pine dominant, was hoping for a bit more complexity but overall a strong IPA candidate.

trevor211 (1338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Bottle from a - I kid you not - drive-through liquor store in Walsenburg, Colorado. Sharp, acerbic hops dominate - citrus and pine resin. Copper color, decent aroma... nice and bitter, far better than anything else I could have found in this town - still nothing to shout home about.
