FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 30, 2006
12oz. bottle. Golden color with a medium sized rocky white head. Lemongrass, vegetal hop aroma. Mellow malt under a floral, grassy hop flavor. Some resinous astringency in the finish, lingering unpleasantly constructed bitterness. Mouthfeel is light, dry.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Pours clear dark yellow with a soapy, short lived head. Light lemony hop aroma. Taste is grassy hops, slight resin. Underlying sourness kind of throws the beer off. Finish is bitter, sour, and slightly metallic.

NNCRed (17) - Idaho, USA - JAN 15, 2006
12 oz Bottle. Flowery hop aroma with a hint of citrus. Golden amber color with some noticeable carbonation and a thin dissipating white head. Nice smooth beer with a small bit of bitterness. Tastes predominantly of hops with a hint of orange.

paulmetzger (154) - Pocatello, Idaho, USA - JAN 14, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2006 Very light amber with lots of bubbles that cling to glass. Strong fruity aroma. Barely bitter, slightly skunky start with a fruity finish that lingers bitter then fruity. Strikingly smooth, clean feel. A favorite from this area.

pinkzambia (1474) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Bottle: Clear gold color with a white head. Aromas are mainly sweet, flowery hops. Initially, it had a pretty good balance of bitter and sweet, but later turned to a more bitter, hoppy taste. I liked it alot. The feel is smooth as well, not to thick. Another great Idaho beer!

hayduke (3369) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 13, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2007 From a 12 oz Bottle. Strong nose of herbal hops with a hint of citrus. Pours cloudy light amber with a medium white head. Hops work well on the tongue. I am rating this one again, and find it a little better than last time. Decent IPA.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2006
A well established aroma of hops lets the nose know this beer is waiting to be tasted. The glass fills with a cloudy butterscotch solution that has no head only big bubbles that fasten themselves to the edge of the glass. This beer is thin and watery, yet it produces a moderately hearty hops taste that fades slowly leaving a mild nutty taste in the mouth.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head that quickly dissipates down to sparse lacing. Smells of citrus and flowers. Taste is breaddy with some nice pine resin and citrus elements.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2006 Pours a medium gold/orange color. Aromas of citrus/grassy hops and light malts. Flavor light malt sweetness with a grassy hop.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2005
Orange, grapefruit, herbal and grassy hops in the nose with underlying honey and toasted malt sweetness. Clear golden body with a fine bubbled and lasting white head. Sweet, doughy malts blend well with orange, grapefruit and herbal hop flavours and moderate bitterness. Medium light body with lively, strong carbonation. Sampled at GABF 2005.
