Not as hoppy as I would have expected for a beer designed by "hopinistas". That is what lowered my rating. It is a fairly easy drinking IPA, but won’t be hoppy enough for true hopheads.

vacantskies (208) - Spokane, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Very clear with a thin layer of foam. The aroma smells like freshly boiled hops. The flavor is creamy with a light amount of citrus.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2010
12 oz bottle from Crystal Liquor Barrel. 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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2010
12-z bottle from the Orland Park, IL, Binny’s: Nice looking pour, a clear rich golden body with some lazy bubbling and a frothy head with heavy lacing. The aroma has orange petals, tangerines, and light cat box scents. The taste has a sweet graininess up front followed by some soft citrus flavors and a moderate bitterness. A zesty bitterness intensifies in the finish, but it seems pretty light weight for an IPA.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Draft at I-Tap in Chesterfield, MO. Pours a nice looking, standard IPA appearance, slight copper with offwhite head. Nose is C-hops and touch catty. A bit muted. On taste, it is much the same, a bit thin bodied and lacking. I don’t get 70ibu at all... Okay.

nbutler11 (1267) - Rota, SPAIN - FEB 8, 2010
On tap at Taste of Tops. Pours a light copper color with fair carbonation and a nice off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Smells and tastes of biscuity malts, bitter hops, grapefruit rind, and caramel. Grassy on the finish. Dece.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - FEB 8, 2010
The label asks if you’re a hopinista. The beer doesn’t bring it though. Pretty mild bitterness. Pours a yellow to light orange. Plenty drinkable but more a pale ale to me.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle. Pretty tasty IPA. Nice citrus aroma and a subtle but firm hop profile in the flavor. Nothing outstanding about this one, but it’s sessionable and very easy to drink.

neepsntatties (1423) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Tried this (on tap) last night at the bowling alley (it was the most interesting beer offering they had!). Colour... golden amber with a thin head. Nose... can certainly tell there’s simcoe’s in there! Palate... decent hops up front that are somewhat sweet, with a bit o’ cut grass and hay to round it out. Better than any of the "six pack" beers I’ve had from New Belgium, but certainly not the level of a La Folie!
