ESBob (343) - Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2010
12 oz Bottle from Sampler Pack. Pours a gold amber with ample head that dissipated quickly. Floral hoppy aroma. Citrusy, hoppy flavor, but blended nicely with sugary malt, an easy drinker with a slightly bitter finish.

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - APR 2, 2010
12oz Bottle. Pours a nice gold with a thick Lacey head that died down quickly. Aroma of herbal citrus hops with a soft malt hay background. Decent but not overpowering bitter taste with again a nice malt background. Palate is good, goes down without clinging and has a suitable amount of carbonation. Nothing special but a good IPA especially for the price.

nice hopy taste but the bloom is watery. Beautiful fine lacy head with nice butterscotch aroma. Drinkable but second tier of IPAs

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short, dense cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up a juicy blend of orange and grapefruit over a pale malt and caramel base.. soft overall and very well balanced. The flavor found bready and caramel sweetness at the core, leaving a bit of residual sugar on the finish.. moderate-plus bitterness around in the form of juicy citrus and spicy pine.. a touch hot on the finish, but it was tasty. Medium-bodied with ample carbonation on the palate.. dry and bitter at the end with the aforementioned residual bitterness.. balance wasn’t perfect, but it was a good drinker overall.

Loved the aroma of this one. Very distinctive grapefruit aroma and hop taste. Nice bite to it. Enjoyable! well done.

flatmatt (1051) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours golden amber with a white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with lots of grapefruit and florals. Flavor has a lot of floral hops with some citrus and pine notes; biscuit malt backup with some grassier hops toward the end. Palate is a bit on the thin side. Clean, but fairly unexciting.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Bottle from Midtown. Pours golden amber with a diminishing white head. Nice citrusy and floral hop aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Pale caramel malt backbone to a nicely balanced bitterness of citrus and pine. Moderate bitter and semi dry finish with a slight amount of clinging resin. Nicely done. Pleasantly bitter without going over the top. Worth a repeat purchase.

mrmekon (100) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Clear, golden pour with a thick white head, moderate lacing. Strong hoppy aroma, evergreens and pineapple. Light body, medium to low carbonation. Caramelized malty sweetness up front quickly fades to a bitter, hoppy bite. Quite a bit of pine. Mild sour aftertaste. Good, but the flavor is fleeting.

sethdude (694) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Pours very clear gold with a pillowy white head that lasts. Great lacing. Aroma is predictable, medicinal hops, with a faint orange funk. Flavor is a hesitant dark toast malt backbone and an overdone hop profile. Not as finely balanced as others in the category. Another example of "more is more", not "more is better".

imaragingbull (569) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2010
12fl.oz bottle pours orange with a medium head. Grassy, floral aromas dominate the nose, with initial tasting showcasing a medium carbonation for the style and a middle range bitterness. The beer finishes well with a short lingering bitterness on the palate. It’s good to find such beers widely available if no other options present. Good work new belgium brewing.
