on tap @ Underbar - Chicago: Orange in color with a thin off white head. Aromas of tangerine, orange and hops. I didn’t know it was an ipa when i ordered but now i can tell, but not by much. The flavors are hoppy, grapefruit, orange, and malt with a lightly bitter finish. Although the abv seems higher than it tasted, this would make a good session beer.

Nice hops. I swear I got a taste of some strawberry and/or bubble gum. Typical bitterness in the finish. Fruity aromas. Good but not ground breaking.

Another gputty hookup. Clear gold with a wiisp of a white head. Orange and grapefruit nose, some herbal notes. Nice, intense bitter flavor, herbal and floral. Pepper and citrus rind finish.

Not especially hoppy for an IPA. Floral aftertaste. Nothing that sperates it form others in the same category.

pineypower (2492) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Thanks to Sliffy for this one. Pours out a light copper color with a small white head. The aroma is rather plain, some hops there but not overlly obvious. The taste is somewhat light for the alcohol content, but what it lacked on aroma it made up on taste. Nice balance only complaint is that it wasn’t hoppy enough. Flavors of floral hops and some sweet malts.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Pretty pale gold color, crystal clear, with smallish white head. Aroma has mild musty, citrusy hops, mildly spicey, with a bit of light caramel and kilned malts. Flavor has grainy malts, bit of spicey hops, touch of vanilla and caramel. Finish has a mildly bitter, smooth finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Pours a clear deep golden with a nice, well-lacing wispy white head. Aroma is fairly assertive and hoppy with a mild touch of sweeter caramel malt showing up. Body starts with a light sugary malty sweetness with a slight corn and cooked vegetable flavor, only momentarily before some fresh piney hops take over and lead to a drier bittersweet and crisp finish. A decent IPA that would be very nice were it not for the off-flavor.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Thanks to Moejuck for this one. Very bitter on the tongue. Not real hoppy but bitter anyway. A bit of malts and fruit but bitter on the tongue in a tasty way. A nice offering from Great Lakes.

Golden color, medium off-white head. Very hoppy aroma overpowers citrus a bit. Flavor is slightly better balanced with the fruitiness coming through on the finish. Went down easy... surprised to see this is 7.5%.
