Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2010
22 oz bottle - Pours a light amber color with a rich, white head. It was pleasant to watch the carbonation swirl to the top of the glass. Pleasant aroma with a hint of bread and a floral hops scent. Very smooth on the palate. I’d like a few more hops in an IPA, but it’s a solid beer.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Nice floral hop aroma. Almost golden colored pour. Malty and peppery. I like mine with more citrusy hops blended and those notes are nearly indistinguishable here. It does leave nice lingering aftertaste and has A very creamy/velvety feel I. The mouth.

randy1301 (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 31, 2010
22oz bottle.Pours a orange/amber with a soapy white head.Nose is herbal and pine hops.Taste is bitter hops up front and on the finish with herbal hops prevalent throughout.The hops are on display for sure in this brew but not enough malt character to even things out.This is definitely an english style IPA but not a well balanced one...

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Light fuzzy head and light see through amber color. Smells of alcohol barley and pine. Tastes similar with a strong bitter finish. Refreshing but could use more pronounced flavors and more complex after taste.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Bomber. Clear gold pour, short white head, minimal lace. Nicely balanced all the way through with toasty and faintly sweet malt matching resin and spruce herbs with a hint of tartness and floral aroma at the long finish. Medium body and carbonation, average mouth feel.

vacantskies (208) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2010
The bottle says brilliantly bright IPA and that’s a good way to describe the appearance. The escaping bubbles are very prominent and the aroma has a lot of citrus. The flavor is unexpectedly hoppy but slightly soapy.

truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2010
22 oz. bomber. Sharp, somewhat astringent aroma. Nice shiny copper color. Underactive head. Kind of a sweet and sour type brew that seems to be attempting a balance of opposing forces. It doesn’t quite make it. The hops dominate and not in the best of ways. There’s not enough behind the hops to carry their strange presence in this beer. The Spot series just gets weirder with each entry.

phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2010
22oz. Bottle. Pours pale but clear and very lively. The aroma is somewhat fruity and full of body; bitterness is midium to heavy. Overall; very satisfying and tasty.

caramel, somehwhat floral aroma. Golden amber color, pretty clear - minimal white head. Taste starts out kind of sweet and malty, but has a bitter finish - the more I had, the more the bitterness tamed the sweetness of it. Interesting aftertaste - kind of stays on the tongue for a bit - taste definitely lasts awhile. Overall, I kind of liked it. I wouldn’t say it was the perfect IPA, for sure - kind of tastes more like a cross between an IPA and an amber, but it’s tasty, nonetheless.
