IndianaRed (2803) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 6, 2006
<!-- B -->Bottle<!-- /B --> Pours a pelucid slightly orangeish yellow. Large persistant foamy white head. Long lasting sticky lacing. Soft dull but attractive hoppy aroma. Not the sharp spicy knd of other western IPAs. Mild malty backbone and lightly fizzy. Overall a nice middle of the road IPA. Thanks to <!-- B -->pinkzambia<!-- /B --> fo the bottle.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 6, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2007 Bottle @ TimE’s House: Gold color, light yellow and a thin white head and some moderate lacing. The nose is strong with carbonation and a sharp grassy citrusy hop note, nearly no malt in the nose. The flavor is grassy and citrusy with a fumey grapefruit note, lacking a malt biscuit backdrop giving this a high school musical feel to it. Real emotion, but cheap props. The finish delivers though with a full body and a clean finish, nice hoppy tail, plenty of malt in the mouthfeel. Decent, needs a bit more bitterness and alcohol for me, falls right into the regular ipa category for me.

shigadeyo (3246) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2006
UPDATED: APR 6, 2007 8/05/2006: Dark orange, almost amber color. Nice foamy head that stays around. Aroma is hops with a bit of evergreen or something. Not overly crisp flavor, there is a fair amount of maltiness to balance the hops and something else lingering around that I can’t put my finger on. As a result, the hoppiness is not overpowering. The alcohol is well hidden (I had no idea the alcohol was so high!). A good beer from Great Lakes, but not their best, in my opinion. I was hoping for a more hops in the flavor and finish. 22 oz. draught, $4.95 at the Winking Lizard Tavern (Crosswoods). Rating: 6 3 6 3 12 = 3.

Date: 3/30/2007
Serving: oz bottle. Thanks Matt!
Event: Weekly Friday night tasting.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Grassy hops. Maybe some peach and apricot as well.
Appearance: Transparent marigold color with a foamy light ivory-colored head.
Flavor: Sweet and malty with hop flavors of grapefruit and light pine. Moderate bitterness overall.
Palate: Soft, subtle carbonation. Medium-light body.
Overall: This is a well-balanced IPA. Very enjoyable and sessionable.

Dogbrick (9344) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2006
This beer is a clear dark golden-amber color with a medium fluffy off-white head with decent retention. Thin sheets of lacing. Aroma of grassy hops and citrus. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Piney hops at first, with sweet malt and spices in the background. At 7.5%, the beer seems to straddle the line between "Regular" and "Imperial" IPA. The finish is bitter hops at first, with a resiny malt undertone. The aftertaste is long-lasting and dry. As with most of GLBC’s beers, this is well done.

holdenn (2088) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2006
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.

jrob21 (2895) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2006
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.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 2, 2006
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.
