UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 Bottle (12oz). Clear amber, average frothy off-white head. I get a ton of pineapple in the nose, dry floral hop bitterness; restrained. The taste is also pineapple, with lots of grapefruit, and slowly building dry funky hops - again, simple, restrained, dry and sneaky-boozy. Decent body, very astringent, mildly alcoholic, long non-aggressive bitter finish - I really like this one, Iíd drink this a lot, wish it were readily available in my area!

12 oz. bottle courtesy of illini08, thanks Jeremy. pours a golden honey in color with a slightly off-white head and pretty decent lacing. aroma is mostly floral hops with some grapefruit noted as well. flavor is more of the same with just enough malt to help add some balance. a rather dry bitter aftertaste that goes well with the floral hop profile. would make for a nice session IPA!

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Pours a mixture of bronze and golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma of orange, citrus, grapefruit, sticky toffee. Taste is toffee, hop resin, and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is full bodied, resinous with lively carbonation.

12oz best before 8/23/07 - Aroma is a bit off, not sure if thatís the way itís supposed to be or not. Like wet alfalfa sprouts, play-doh and dust. Pours transparent orange with a small head and good lacing. Flavor pretty much matches aroma. I can taste some hop bitterness, but the overall flavor is not appealing to me at all.

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 (2628) - 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 Iím 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.
