phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2011
1 Pint, 6oz btl. Pours amber somewhat clear, with little to no head. Citrus and resin aromas electrify the nostrils. The taste was a little flat compared to a good number of IPA’s I’ve tested over the years; but better than most. I thought the drinking experience was flavorsome.

dchmela (2818) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2011
Cask at Belmont Station. Pours amber with a thick white head. Huge citrus pine aroma, very resiny. Smooth malt sweetness, with the cask keeping the carbonation light, and balanced with a nice hop bitterness.

JoeinDahlem (1376) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2011
Classic US IPA nose with grapefruit and touches of caramel. Deep hazy red-orange. Big fruity hop flavor with firm, reasonable bitterness. Dry zesty finish. Nice surprise.

Brandman (2359) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2011
Orange body, small white head. Sweet malty aroma, bisquit and very fruity hops. Cookies, some herbal flavour, salty smoked salmon in taste. Dries your mouth.

rosenbergh (8434) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2010
660 ml bottle. From Seattle, WA, USA. HHOK8.
Slightly hazy amber colour with small creamy off-white head. Sweetish somewhat dark hops, bread, biscuit and caramel sweetness in aroma. Flavour is bitter dark hops, some sweetness and caramel malt. Thinnish. Rather short bitter aftertaste. Not overly hopped.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2010
22 oz bomber. Decent IPA. Nothing notable about this one. Decent and drinkable, but hardly distinguishable.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2010 Slightly hazed amber orange pour, small white head. Hop dominated aroma with floral and earthy notes, some mandarin orange. Has a slightly caramelly malt flavor to it and a denser body than a lot of IPAs, though hops still dominate the flavor. More earth and citrus notes with some tropical character. Overall, I find it dominated by sweet tangerine when colder, becoming more resiny as it warms. This beer seems to vary a lot each time I have it, but it’s generally a good affordable standby.

mcberko (9220) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2010
On tap at The Taphouse, pours hazy light golden. Standard IPA here - hops, pine and toffee. Pretty good.

rader58 (816) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Pours a murky dark brown with orange hues. Aroma of molasses, dried fruit, toffee and pine. Flavor is molasses and dried cherry with some woody hints. Not too bad, a little malt forward for my taste in an IPA, but good nonetheless.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. Aromas of biscuit, caramel, grains and faint stale hops; flavor is about the same, only with a metalic aftertaste. This is not very good at all...maybe i got a 6 that had been sitting around for awile.
