Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 3, 2010
12 oz bottle from Fred Meyer - Good hoppy aroma. A bit grassy. Light orange color. Foamy white head. A bit too grainy on the taste and slightly fizzy. Overall a decent IPA, but it seems like the hops are covering up some deficiencies.

Maddog (392) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Clingman71. I wasn’t expecting too much, although I really enjoy New Belgium, but not all breweries can pull off an ipa. This beer is decent, but certainly nothing to get crazy about. The pour is clear, light orange with aromas of cereal grains and hops. The flavors are light malt with a tad bit of spice and delicate hops throughout. THis beer is light and fresh, but it is an average ipa.

Nice flavors in the citrus/pine hop vein. Nice frothy carbonation. As somebody addicted to more kickass versions (like Green Flash Imperial and Weyerbacher Simcoe) it started to seem a bit thin and insubstantial over time, to the point that a cloying sweetness seemed to predominate. Won’t be buying a six - - when the glass was empty it left me craving . . . different beer!

OldGrowth (2651) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2010
old note, on tap at Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma, sweet, citrus, grapefruit and orange. Clean golden orange color, good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor, fairly bitter mildly sweet. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter finish. Good ipa, dulled as warmed. Sweetness made for nice moments in aroma.

pintocb (645) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Golden color. Awesome hoppy nose. Balanced flavor with lots of resiny citrus. Clean and very drinkable.

Stuedmaster (208) - Vista, California, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Extremely clean and well balanced. Has the right amount of bitterness, the aroma is pine, herbal, and citrus. Holds a nice thick white head down the glass with regal lacing. It is plenty bitter, but there is enough bready maltiness and hop fruitiness to balance it out. The aftertaste is a bit weak, it has a medium body and thin texture with medium carbonation. A very satisfying IPA, one you could drink in quantity.

Bronzan (124) - Windsor, California, USA - APR 30, 2010
Pours a very clear amber. Nice hop aroma...a little earthy, which is what I like. It loses me a little on the aftertaste..just doesn’t seem to end as well as it starts. Pretty nice overall, though.

swenocha (81) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 30, 2010
Piney, earthy aroma. light orange pour with white head and good lacing. A bit sweeter than I expected. Not overly hoppy, but a nice bitter and a mix of pine and citrus hops. Fat Tire like biscuit malt action as well. Pretty darn good...

drowland (5998) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2010
4/29/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Wonderful fresh hop aroma! Loving the grapefruit, tropical fruits, even the borderline sour bitterness. There is a dash of corn, though. The flavor is good, but not as good, with more bitterness and a larger dash of that corn. Overall, really not bad.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - APR 29, 2010
Sampled at brewery. Pours clear gold with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of light pine, orange, caramel. Taste is more citrusy, leaning towards sweet, medium length bitter finish. Medium light body, soft texture.
