ElGaucho (2299) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2007
Bottle. Somewhat subdued hop aroma but nice. Aromatic. Slight haze, otherwise clear body with scattered slow rising bubbles. Large, lasting, very slightly off-white head. Nice appearance. Excellent IPA. Strong and piney. I canít believe Iíve never rated this brew before. For some reason I seem to have trouble remembering which GL brews Iíve had which ones I havenít. Very underrated.

On tap at the brewpub. Light straw color with a thick head. Aroma is mostly pine resin. Body is medium and tastes about like the aroma. Fairly quick finish.

not a huge fan of ipaís, but this was pretty good. nice hoppy flavor, and very drinkable for a prety high octane beer. poured from the bottle, golden amber in color, nice head. good beer.

TheShat (131) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 Bottle pours a golden color. Head dissapears quickley but glass laced beautifully. Tremendous hop flavor, with citrous and pine notes and a hint of malt flavor. The bitter aftertaste sits pleasantly on the roof of the mouth. This is one of the finest IPAís I have had.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2007
Clear deep amber with a medium head. Head dissipates quickly, leaving little lacing. Aroma is biscuit, with grass and pine hops. Taste was fresh hops, not overpowering, and caramel/biscuit malts. Descent beer in all respects.

Nephilium (1487) - Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2007
Pours a light, clear, amber, with an off white head that leaves strong lacing behind. The aroma is hops, with an undertone of alcohol. The flavor is of strong hops with a hint of floral notes, with a long finish. Overall, a good sessionable IPA.

I had this beer around July of 2006 and did not like it. But I just tried it again as of March 2007. I really do like this beer. Not a massive aroma but pours with a massive head. Nice hop and citurs notes the roll very well. Nice finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Bottle: Pale golden, fairly clear, soft carbonation, gentle white head that dies fairly quickly, splotchy lacing.   Soft citrus and tea leaf notes.   Mildly hopped, its moreso a citrus rind flavor that emerges on the tongue.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Picks up more citrus sweetness as it warms.   Soft IPA in general, with quite a bit of citrus rind flavor.   Thanks to Facto for this one!

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 Bottle. Pours very clean golden hay color with medium white head. Aroma is citrus and hops. Flavor definetly has malty sweetness which is combined with the citrus hops. Nice balance between malt and hops. Finish is a little dry.

hops are crazy here, i coudl taste grapefruit here and it almost ruined it for me. what saved me was the flavor, this is a very distinct IPA and that is rare and enjoyed.
