hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Bottle... Hazy amber ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Earthy nose with gobs of caramel/crystal malt, light pine and English or Willamette hops? Leans on the bitter side of balance, but has a solid malt backbone. Black tea and lemon/orange peel notes. Medium to full-bodied and milky with understated carbonation. Lightly bitter, balanced finish. Nice English style IPA! Thanks to MI2CA for providing this bottle!

vyvvy (4557) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Pours hazy orange / amber with a dense beige head. The aroma has pine and floral hops with some sweet malt in the back. Medium body that starts smooth, then a barriage of fizzy carbonation hits sharpening things. The taste begins with sweet lightly toasted malt then some gentle pine and woody hops come in. There is a bit of staleness - no date on the bottle to check the age. The finish has woody cardboard flavor. An okay IPA.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2007 This is an enjoyable IPA, but the brewers need to kick up the bittering hops. It pours a light orange body with a sizeable pale beige head. The nose is sweet caramel with tart oranges, tangerines, and a splash of lime. The balance of the flavor leans towards the malts with the citric bitterness seemingly tossed in as a teaser. Interestingly, this leaves the mouth with a refreshing piney feeling. This hop-head would enjoy this tasty ale more if more bitterness was present. As it is, it’s a nice sessionable brew.

patrick767 (3717) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2006
draft - Pours copper with and moderate head. The hoppy aroma has some nice citrus notes. The flavor continues the good citrus hops and reveals a nice malty balance. There’s a lingering bitter finish that’s enjoyable enough. Good beer.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Bottle: Pours a clear copper orange with a frothy, nicely-lacing off-white head. Fresh piney resinous hoppy aroma has a good earthy caramel malty backbone. Body starts fairly full and sweet with some toasty notes and plenty of sticky piney hop resin and a touch of grapefruit flavor. A nice, flavorful, balanced, and drinkable IPA.

Terminus (3327) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 17, 2006
tap at BWW in downtown Indianapolis. burnt clear orange with a soft fluffy white head. nose of pine and metallic hops with some light passionfruit like notes. light flavors of pineapple, lemon, copper with some pine. the mouthfeel suffers here-not much substance. ends up feeling watery and thin. fuzzy carbonation doesnt help either. maybe this was an old keg? i dunno. not a bad start, but could use some tweeking.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Orange/copper. Insignificant head. Resiny grapefruit rind hop aroma. Same flavor with just enough malt to soften the palate. Medium, balanced body. Good session IPA. Great with pizza.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Poured a hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Tangerine hoppy notes in the aroma. Sweet malt as well. The flavor starts with malt with some citrusy hopps in the middle. Mild to moderate bitterness on the semi-dry finish.

aracauna (3196) - Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Pours a clear amber. This aroma is full of good orangey hops. The hops are aggressive in the flavor as well. A solid IPA with plenty of hop aroma and flavor.
