pinkzambia (1426) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Tap @ Kahootz: Clear copper color with no head. This is a well-made basic IPA with a good hop presence and the average bitter aftertaste one is looking for in this style. Aroma is grassy, hay and grapefruit rinds. Pretty good, exceeded my expectations.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Tap at Twainís. Pours clear amber with a small beige head, little lacing. Aroma is nice mix of pine and resinous hops. Pretty nice. Taste is very hoppy, lots of pine notes, some mild citrus and malt notes as well. Mouth is pretty full, though pretty well carbonated. Finish is bitter. Overall, a nice IPA.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy orangish color with a decent white head. Left plenty of lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma was grass, pine, and floral hops. Flavor was citrus, pine and hops. Aftertaste was bitter. And bitter the way I like it. A very good beer.

unclemike (2213) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Orange pour with a pillowy white head that leaves a beautiful lacing behind. Aroma is very hoppy with notes of tangerine, grapefruit and pine. Flavor is actually a lot less aggressive than I expected with the hoppiness coming through but in a pleasantly mild way ending with a nice bite in the finish.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Pretty hazed-orange pour with fluffy white head. Nose is abundant pine and citrus hoppiness. Flavors are likewise hop-forward but also has a sweet caramel/toffee backbone as well. Dry, almost astringent hop nite in the finish, with the emphsis on the pine and grapefruit. Good brew.

BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours orange with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is of hops, pine, spice, citrus, and grass. Taste is of hops, citrus, spice, and grass. Has a very sharp pine taste that overpowers the hops. Has a very dry malt backbone, that is also overpowered by the pine. The more it warms, the more pine flavor comes out. Lingering taste of pine and hops. Mouthfeel is medium and sticky. This is a good beer, unfortunately the pine is ridiculous, making this beer hard to session.

Narnad (1448) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Poured from the tap a sexy clear, copper color with a dense, white head. Great lacing from the head on the glass and itís retained quite nicely by the mild carbonation within the brew. Aroma has a strong, bitter hop leaf nose, modest lime and orange citrus note, some presence of a resiny hops, light malt in the background but the hops really rule this brew. Flavor has a very strong hoppy bitter leaf bite up front that fades to a mild orange, strong pine and mild caramel malt middle finishing with a pronounced doughy/biscuit ending. Body was modest and when combined with the carbonation, made for a really crisp and slightly dry beer which melded perfectly with the strong hops. Overall the Chinook and Simcoe in this brew are hard not to detect. Both work very well in providing a strong hops bitterness that works very well with a body crafted perfectly to both carry and deliver the fantastic hop bouquet.

Pours golden with a thin off-white head. Notes of light citrus, resinous melons, jam, bready malt. Medium bodied and resinous with lively carbonation.
