Appearance: Pours a clear, amber body with a bubbly, white head. Smell: Sweetish, toasty golden caramel aroma with fruity notes of citrus and juiced apricots. Taste: Pale malts, lightly toasted, with a subdued caramel sweetness. Splash of good, wholesome spring water. Slight vein of fruitiness running through the overall taste. Light citrusy hoppiness and a medium bitterness. Finishes dry and relatively crisp. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A good, standard India Pale Ale.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of juicy, grapefruity hops with a toasty, semi-sweet. Body starts lightly sweet and piny resiny hoppy with a light balance of sweet pale malts before a drier, bittersweet finish. An ok IPA but needs a more assertive hop flavor.

Resiny piney hops and mellow buttery fruit (peach, pear, green grape) aromas. Syrupy Floral notes with light woodsy dry hay undercurrent. Sweet fruits up front (strawberry). Mildly toasted malts and some buttery flavors. Kinda let down by the hops, which seemed flat. I was only let down because it smelled so good.

Brewed in Everett, Washington. Uses a blend of Pale, Crystal, and Munich Grains and Chinook, Cascade, Amarillo hops. Clocks in and 75 IBU’s and 6.5% alcohol by volume. Nice looking beer! Has a rich creamy head complimented by a clear, dark copper color and fine lace.Deploys a sweet malty aroma with strong flowery hop notes. Smells smooth and balanced. To the taste it has an initial touch of sweet caramel malt flavors quickly followed by a medium bitter bite. Very nicely balanced and finishes mildly bitter. To the pallet it is full bodied and has a smooth and distinct mouthfeel. Solid all around IPA, but not my fav. Needs a little more distinct flavor. This would make a great burger and a brew combo.

Bottle shared by acrdz. Thanks. Poured a clear medium orange color. head was off white and left some lace behind on the glass. Smelled of graham cracker and grapefruity hops. Light bodied and dry with carbonation on the higher end of the spectrum. Toffee malt flavor paled somewhat compared to the citrusy hops and assertive hop bitterness that peaked at about 7 out of 10. I liked this one.

22oz bottle, courtesy of acrdz. Thanks, Mike! Pours a clear, bright orange-amber color; thin off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Basic citrus and earthy malts in the aroma; some sugar. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy earthy and biscuity hops; some solid bitterness and sugary malts; drinkable, ok. Medium bitter finish, showing lingering bitterness, breadiness, and bitterness; and sugar.

3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2008
Filtered orange and red colored body. First whiff is crystal malt and grain, vegetal, old and green hops. Has a germy bran and soggy bread flavor along with some twangy but pallid fruit notes and a peanut aftertaste. Not a good IPA.
