DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Bomber. Pours deep orange/ruby color with a nice white head. Great lacing. Aroma is malty, ambery, bready, with some hops in there. Surprisingly malt-centric. Taste is a bit watery, slight citrus, caramel malts. Slightly bitter. Sweet malts. This is a nice, balanced IPA. Not one of the best but still pretty good.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Big off-white shaving cream head, copper body with lots of floaties. Hoppy nose with spice and citrus, some malt as well. Well-balanced malt and hops: moderately sweet, bready, with bitterness and spices dancing on the back of the tongue. Nice mouthfeel as well.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2007
bottle- thanks to Jason for this brew. Extreme sediment which detracts from its appearence, nice shaving cream, tannish head. A well balanced ipa, one that does not overwhelm with hops, but certainly has some piney, citrus, and major spice notes. Spiceyness dominates towards end, with faint bitterness. Nicely done.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2007
Pours a deep, rich amber with noticable viscosity and a microcosm of haze under a full and fluffy off-white head. A thick sheet of lace spackles the glass nicely. Low zoo-pen stinkiness interrupts an otherwise well-hopped aroma of pine and florals with an alcohol undertow. Full body approaches stickiness and finishes dry. Tea bitters join pine and faint citrics to make for a well-rounded and highly-hopped IPA with only a mild caramel sweetness to temper it. This is over the top... and I like it.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle. Clear copper, with a modest off-white head that fades slowly. The aroma is impressive, even across the table. Sharp, piny hops that cover a malty/toffee base. Medium body, with a refreshing hop bite that fades to a smoky finish.

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Huge off-white head that tops a clear deep amber/orange body. Floral hop aroma. The flavor is smooth, slightly bitter, but not overly so, with no sticky sweetness to detract from it either. Well balanced. A good IPA.

decaturstevo (5407) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 2, 2007
RBSG 07 An orange amber pour that has a nice off white head and lace. A huge hoppin frog aroma of hops and very little malt. A flavor of rich malt and hops. A very well balanced beer that is smooth and silky on the palate as well.

Indra (2700) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2007
22oz. bottle. Fresh aroma of citrus and pine, juicy and strong, with lighter notes of toasty, sweet malts, tangerine and flowers. Medium amber color, mostly clear, with a fine, lasting, off-white head. Abundantly hoppy flavor, citric, fruity, lightly woody and nicely bitter, however a nice amount of malty sweetness remains, lending a nice balancing effect and a full, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes oily, resinous and clean with a fading blend of deep sweetness, lingering grapefruit and a clarifying bitterness, and giving a semi-dry effect. Really is nicely balanced, and features a medium-full body. Rather nicely crafted and satisfying version of an American IPA.

Bottle shared with MrRomero, Very nice floral bouquet, with a touch of pine. Medium malts that balanced very nicely with the citrusa, a great structure plenty of mouthfeel, strong robust and delicious. Great brew.
