Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a big billowy 3 finger off-white head that leaves some nice lacing. Nose is floral hops and malt. Taste is sweet citrus and caramel upfront with a fairly long lasting resin finish. Medium mouth feel. Decent IPA - would buy again.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Clear copper wth fant head. Deep aroma of very herby, bitter almost spicy hops. Actually, after trying to place the aroma, I ealize that it smells just like marijuana. Very full savory, woodsy and herbal hops flavor. Malt is hiden, but there. Just a bit of sweetness to complement the hops. OIly pot resin is also reflected in the taste. Hits bitter to start, but finishes clean. Hop bitterness lasts in the cheeks a little.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2010 10/12/2008 Pours crisp dark orange tinted amber with a 1 finger off white head that leaves sparse lacing and lasts a while. Nose is floral hops, biscuity malt, and grass, a little grainy malt in there too. Flavor is caramel and biscuity malts, quickly accompanied by grapefruit and lime citrus hops, a little floral hops, and fresh baked bread. Finish is caramel malt coming back strong with the grapefruit and grassy hops, then fading to a slightly bitter but sweet aftertaste. Body is medium and somewhat creamy, not too sticky. Pretty light and clean, a good example of an American IPA that is fairly strong but not overly heavy. Re-rate - 08/14/2010: Still pretty decent, knocked it back a bit as it’s a bit more medicinally bitter and has an odd, planty finish.

RedSox2004 (1252) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Clear golden amber with a generous head and very nice lacing. Stong grassy hops aroma with plenty of biscuity malts. Assertive hops bitterness offset by almost as strong malt sweetness. Citrus and caramel are the clearest of a complex flavor profile. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, carbonation is only mild, but a nice crisp finish.

Dango (26) - Snekkersten, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2008
This is great. Strong hoppy, and wine-like aroma, beatifully rounded and very hoppy taste. I love this stuff, although it is very sweet and full for an IPA. The bottle I just had looks like the one on the picture, but only lists an alcohol percentage of 5,6. It tastes stronger and if it was 7.1 like listed here, it would not suprise me.

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2009 Pours slightly hazy orange amber with a small, off white head. Aromas are dominated sweet malt that brings apricot and citrus with significant pine hop presence. Palate translates well, significant crystal malt combines with fruity hops. Piney hops drive a long bitter finish with some more crystal malt bringing a touch of balance on the back palate.

Shiny copper. Crisp and full texture. Weighty on the tongue, yet easy to drink. Most noticeable difference is in the malt flavors. They seem much more full and rounded, with wholesome notes of caramel, toffee and milk chocolate. Hop flavors and aromas are nice as well, with a decent amount of bitterness to boot. Overall, this IPA recipe is a great improvement over the last one, IMO. It’s just much more flavorful and it has more depth. I’ll be buying and drinking this again.

On October 7, 2008
Slight shady amber to copper color, creamy orange head. Buttery, very much buttery from Diacetyl, nutmeg, sweet, pumpkin, spicy, gingerbread scent. In the back also a bit fruity and some cinnamon. Fruity, bitter, cinnamon, clove, gingerbread taste. Citrus and bitter aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Shadrp afterbitterness. Just too much butterscotch, not really subtle hints.

Draft. An amber beer with a good off-white head. The aroma is sweet with good notes of hops and grass. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of hops, grass, and grapefruit, leading to a dry bitter finish.
