theisti (3321) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 13, 2010
10 oz schooner draft at the brewery pub in Seattle, Washington. Pour is a hazed golden ruby with a smallish off white head. Aroma of citrus sweet (kiwi fruit) hops along with some grassiness. Taste is quite sweet right away, more of the kiwi orange fruit sweetness, with a hint of honey. The grassiness picks back up in the middle and finishes it out. As it warms, a touch of diacetyl comes out in the finish. Palate is medium bodied, slightly undercarbonated with a sweet drying finish. Nice enough.

jake65 (2742) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle: Pours a dull, brownish orange with a finger of fluffy sand colored head. Smells hoppy enough, mostly florals and light citrus. Nice impact with the floral hops, sweet caramel, and lingering bitters. Solid flavor - very drinkable.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Semi active mildly hazed amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of heavy citrus, grapefruit, orange, light caramel and mild resinous hops. Taste of heavy grapefruit, malt, caramel, mild diacetyl and light sulfur Heavy citrus bitter finish. Over (hop) balanced.

luttonm (2568) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2009
Very nice strong IPA. Lovely hoppy orange pour, respectably thick. A bit too malt and orange flavor for me, would prefer a bit sharper, fresher hopping. Robust.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Cloudy brown-orange pour, with a short white head and moderate lace. Carmel and nut malt flavors mixed with citrus and pine hops to make a medium-bodied IPA. The cloudiness increases towards the end of the bottle (bomber), as does the doughiness.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2009
Very nice citrus aroma. Pours a slightly cloudy orange, thin head. Strong hops, musty finish. Light body.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Bottle:   Vibrant amber, slightly fiery, nice carbonation, thin off-white head, spotty lacing.   Minor citrusy and sweet hoppy nose.   Pale hoppiness on the tongue.   Smooth, but lacks body.   This does not feel like an imperial IPA at all.   Yeah, this one is rather thin.   Nice sweetness, light malt base, but just really lacks body.   Clean, easy to drink.   But damnit this needs to be bigger.   Lingering malts that are a little soily/earthy.   Meh...

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 1, 2009
22 oz bottle from Market of Choice. Medium amber pour with about 2 inches of white foam and sticky lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, a strong amount of caramel malt. Flavor is much the same, slightly overbalanced with the malt but still pretty darn tasty. Probably the best Hales beer I’ve ever had.

kangaroo (67) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Very nice strong hops aroma with some good citrus smell. The citrus taste came through along with a sweet malt. A long, bitter but pleasant finish.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2009 Poured orange with a moderate white head. Aroma is brown sugar and citrus hops, with tangerine the most noticable aroma to me. Flavor is caramelly malt up front with a very lingering long dry finish. The hops come through mostly as orange and citrus rind, but became distinctly floral on the midpalate as it warmed up. Very good and better than regular Mongoose has been recently.
