Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2007
Bottle. Golden clear colour with a little head. Nice aroma of caramel, malt and hops. Flavour of a lot of hops combined with some maltness. Very nice and bitter at the end.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2007
12 oz bottle. Wife said this was an ipa but by the aroma on the nose a yeasty bready aroma thought it may be a barleywine. Gold body with white head and decent lacing. Fruity peaches for flavor along with a sweet heavy malt texture. A fruity sweetness lingers on the palate. Glad the wife pick this out for me while on vacation. Man I’m spoiled.

Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Pours a clear golden amber with a half finger head . Good retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and nice grapefruit hops. Taste is brown sugary malts up front with citrus and pine hops cleaning off the palate. Creamy mouthfeel but not chewy. Excellent IPA!

tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - JUN 16, 2007
12 oz bottle. this is a nice moderate IPA with a good balance of floral and bitter hops. a nice light sweetness in there as well. a lot of IPAs overwhelm the senses with massive amounts of hops. great lakes uses some restraint with this one and it pays off.

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 15, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Light amber pour, with nice head that diminishes into a thin off-white film. Smells of pine and citrus. Initial taste fills the mouth with bitterness, sweet malt, a hint of caramel, and then a little heat. Lasting bitter finish. Good beer.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Clear honey amber body with a nicely retaining vanilla head. Good lacing. Aroma boasts citrusy and grassy hops atop some bready and caramel maltiness. Taste has a prevalent grapefruit like hop bitterness softened by notes of tangerine, caramel, and fresh mown hay. Nicely balanced and highly drinkable.

DirtyMartini (194) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 13, 2007
tasted like an english IPA made with american hops. definitely a fruitiness, likely from an english ale yeast in the flavor as well as a nice bitterness from the hops and a prominently citrus hop character.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Clear pale body with a small white head. The aroma is apples, bread, pear and light citrus. The flavor is sweet fruits, herbal and apple. Medium body is softly carbonated and a bit tannic. wtf? This is an IPA?

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy golden with a small, off-white head. Fat, fruity nose. Very full body with sweet, fruity accents and dry, citrusy hops. Nice all right. 310507

Ungstrup (32889) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2007
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of hops and malt. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of fruit - among them grapefruit.
