Had this on draft at the Capital Ale House in Richmond, VA on 9-6-03. WOW! Beautiful copper color with a small tan head. The nose is alive with orange, grapefruit, HOPS, and some malt. The taste brings more of the grapefruit forward along with an almost maple syrup sweetness in the background. Definite hop bitterness too. Finishes well with not too much bitter aftertaste. Great stuff!

Good hopa aroma. Great up front bitterness that carries through the beer quite well. A very good session brew. A good example.

Very nic IPA from Humboldt.
Wonderful sweet, toasty hop aroma.
Nice red-brown appearance with a nice fluffy
white head. Nice lacing. Very nice sweet hop flavor,
a bit light on the palate due to low ABV. In my opinion,
the perfect IPA if looking for lower ABV. Excellent.

A very cool looking redish tinted brew. Average on the head. Has a solid hoppy aroma with a citrus background. Hoppy ,bitter, pink lemondad/grapefruit hints. I like it, what else can I say.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one was poured off draught with a very clean looking ruby red color and a lovely fluffy white head. The aroma is what this beer is all about with florals, citrus, and weed being the overpowering pleasantry. The taste is very subdued, and i found little qualities in it aside from a faint hoppiness and a subtle, and i do mean really subtle malty ending. It finished very dry, but surprisingly clean with a mild degree of carbonation. The biggest problem i had with it was its real lack of kick anywhere. It seemed like a typical Calfornian IPA.

Nice deep copper color with medium sized head, citrus hop aroma with hints of malt. taste is of citrus and grapefruit nicely balanced by a sweet malt presence, with a citrus hop finish. nicely balnced and easy drinking. not as over the top as your typical IPA, but a very enjoyable beer
