ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 31, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured and amber color with a fairly durable bone white head. Aroma of citrus and fresh pine with a touch of sweet crystal malt. The taste starts with herbal hop flavors, followed by an assertive bitterness over caramel and toasty malts. As the malt fades, the bitter remains, with a crisp finish.

i had this a couple of years ago and remember not being blown away, lets try this new entry...light dried grass, light day old pinecone, and empty honey pot aromas .. nice lacing, like the cobwebs of a nascar fans brain .. beautiful bitterness level, and real easy to drink .. an enjoyable IPA, hides the abv well... it seems to work without being to much ..

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Pretty hazy orange pour, white fluffy head. The nose is a wallop of PNW hops. The flavors are pine and grapefruit, with a well balanced dose of caramel and toffee malt. Pretty drinkable brew.

A bottle from my brothers well stocked beer fridge on Christmas Eve. Plenty of C-Hops in the nose and flavor, malt backbone and no bitter face.

Ljunkan (530) - SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2009 Bottle @ Pitchers Pub, Karlstad. Pours a orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is nice of hops; tropical fruits, grapefruit, citrus, almost some apricot I think. Flavour is much the same; hoppy and nice with lot of tropical fruits, citrus and grapefruit. Good bitterness which mellows out with some caramel malt, a bit of toffee. Refreshing beer - probably more of a summer beer. Mouthfeel is quite filling, mediumbodied, average carbonation, good bitterness. Overall, a very drinkable and good IPA which I would not mind to drink again.

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Bottle: Clear gold with a small white head. Mild aroma with a good floral hop taste. Not overly powerful on the floral aspect, but still pleasantly dominant. Pretty good.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - DEC 21, 2008
This reminds me of the Blind Pig by Russian River but lighter. Perfume floral hops permeate the air when you open the bottle. The smell that hop heads crave. Nice head clear bright shimmering orange color. A touch sweetness nice and hoppy and yet refreshing. Not very bitter. I would prefer a double snake. Very good.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Poured from the bottle a golden brown with a very nice head. This a nicely balanced IPA. It is spiced with hops heavily but it is also sweet (carmel). I think this is a more complete beer then the older version.

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2008
Fad: Rigtig lækker IPA. God balance imellem humlen og malten gør at den ryger ned trods den lidt høje %. Den procent bliver tilgengæld udnyttet fuldt ud til at bakke humlen op. Virkelig lækker.
