presario (4625) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 9, 2007
Bottle in San Diego. Cloudy dark orange with a lasting creamy head. Orange and grapefruit aroma with some spruce and sweetness. Thick body. Tasty alcohol presence. Nice drinkable balance. Hard to believe the alcohol or the double hops. Light citrus flavour.

Very nice double IPA. It does everything right - while not being exceptional it is certainly very tasty. Outstanding balance.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2007
12 oz. bottle - Pours a hazy amber color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Has a light grassy/herbal hop aroma. Very light orange aroma in there too. Flavor is light caramel malt with some light citrus and floral hops. Nice balanced flavor. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. A little subduded for a 2IPA, but it’s still good. A nice beer.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Bottle: Deep caramel, large foamy sandy colored head, sticky lacing.   Looks great!   Semi-sweet citrus infused hop nose, slight grapefruit and hop tea.   Rich malty background, hoppy yet not biting.   Very well balanced.   Bouquet of flavors, from floral to hops, with a rich malt bed.   Amazingly well balanced.   Full bodied, with a mouthfeel that is quite smooth.   Malts carry this beer quite a ways, with the hop aspect in check.   Did I mention well balanced?   Not overly bitter, but instead with a HUGE malt base, this is easily one of the better Imperial India Pale Ales I have had in a while.   Simple, yet complex, smooth yet tangy.   If there ever was a session IIPA, this is most definitely what I would drink.   Well done Mad River!

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Hop giant. Sweet hop-malt complexity with pine and resin on the back of the tongue. Rich amber hue with tints of golden orange. Very delectable especially for the price. Almost a sessionable double IPA if this is possible.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Pours a hazy golden amber with lots of small floaties which almost looked like sugar granules floating in a thick liquid. Head was medium off white creamy/bubbly with lots of lacing left down the glass. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, lots of pine, grapefruit and some floral. Flavor is very piney and sweet, with lots of caramel, some grapefruit. More on the sweet side than the bitter. Wasn’t expecting a lot from this one but really ended up enjoying it.

Bottle at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear reddish orange colour with a rich creamy white head. Quite sweet and perfumy aroma of peaches and sweet oranges with a grapefruity hop bite. dryish flavour of lychee and grapefruit with notes of cookies. hoppy finish of grapefruit and lemon-rind. Nice one.

thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Thanks to The_Epeeist for the bottle. Nice citrus aroma comes from a hazy golden brown body. Medium palate. Citrus and pine flavors up front with some good sweet malts in back. This one was better than expected.

Ibrew2or3 (6888) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 17, 2007
12 oz bottle that poured a hazy orange copper with nice tan head. It has a sizable aroma that seems to be both grapefruit and pine hops as well as some sweet malt. The malt seems to cause the tart grapefruit smell much sweeter. Wow, juicy bitter grapefruit flavor that flows into sweeter and sweeter citrusiness as the malts ante up and kick in. Just beyond midway bitter pine hops join the fun. Ends as any IPA or IIPA should with tasty hoppiness right into the after taste. High on the Yumminess scale.
