This doesnít taste much different than burning river. Same kind of boring citrus hops. Has that potato flavor of the Conways Irish ale. Above average beer, pretty mediocre IPA. I expected more from this.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2006
I belive this a usually a Brewpub exclusive, but I found it in Kent the Riverside. Pours, golden yellow with a thn white head. The aroma is nice hop fruit mix. The flavor is very similar to what the aroma promised. There was hint of pine in there. Nice clean finish. Another strong beer from Great Lakes.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Clear golden pour with a long-lasting rich effervescent head. Strong PNW hop aromas of grapefruit and pine. Surprisingly balanced flavor: The hop bitterness never dominates, the rich caramel sweetness supports the hop highlights perfectly. Very sessionable!

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2006
This beer pours a nice deep clear golden color with a decent effervescence. Very stinky citric and earthy hops in the aroma. The flavor is dominated by earthy hop flavor. The back end is well balanced. No alcohol or bitterness domination. Good balance between a sweet malt flavor, bitterness, and lasting hop flavors.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2006
Very nicely crafted, its only flaw in that itís not being aggressive enough with the hops. Golden bodied with a well sustained, fine lacing head, itís got an aroma of grapefruit, pine, and wildflowers over a solid caramel base. Caramel and toffee support the strong citric and resinous bitterness, all well balanced, until the hops surge forward for a prolonged, bitter finish. Sessionable, even at its 7.5% abv.

Lowe1983 (1342) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Pours a clear darker golden color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is of citrus, mainly grapefruit, and floral hops with caramel and biscuity malts. Flavor is of grapefruit, pine, and floral hops. Finishes with caramel and dough flavors with a slight bitterness. A decent brew but not my favorite from GLBC.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Bottle. This one wins the well rounded and balanced IPA catagory. Floral and citrus hops intermingle with caramel and bready malts but never overpower each other. Finishes crisp with a gentle bitter aftertaste. Nice job.

garrison (749) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2006
From a twelve ounce bottle purchased at "Kellerís IGA" in gaslight Clifton - This one pours a dark amber fluid with a piney-citrus aroma and a tall white head of foam. Tastewise, it starts of with rich body and a quite balanced taste, but finishs weaker. A good IPA.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2006
bottle. Aroma: Grapefruit, floral, slight caramel, and toast. Appearance: Light amber and clear with an off white head that was foamy and long lasting. Flavor: Big floral, grapefruit, citrus, slight malt sweetness and biscuit flavors. Well balanced. Palate: Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Finish was dry and bitterness did not linger too long. Overall: The last time I had this was on tap at the brewery several months ago. Seemed more aggresively hopped then. This one was good, but not as good as I remember. Still, a well balanced and very drinkable IPA that would go great with food.

All hops and not much malt, which is why it went well with wings, which were way too hot for my tastes. Drinkable but one dimensional and probably not as deserving as the rating i have given it, but iíll have to try it again.
