Beerapprentice (207) - Hopatcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Aroma of citrus, pine, and floral hops. Color is a clear amber with white head. Tastes of pine, hops, citrus and grassy notes. Flavor is a bit watered down and bitter. Nothing special.

MrBunn (2536) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Bomber. Pours a pretty reddish color with a big frothy head and aromas of pine and herbal hops. Flavor is pretty similar. A toffee/caramel malt presence balanced against an English hoppiness. Pretty light and crisp, but not that compelling as far as I’m concerned.

In short: A basic not-so-refreshing grassy IPA. Decent beer but nothing special.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by a medium beige head with good retention
In long: The not-so-aromatic nose has some grass and candied fruits. Taste is grainy malts, candied apples, dried fruits, grass, caramel, citrus fruits, tobacco, earth. The finish had this light tobacco nicotine flavor (like chewing on a cigarette filter) that became a bit annoying at the end of the bottle. Body was soft and the carbonation very smooth. All in all this was well balanced and enjoyable although not very refreshing. I wasn’t too crazy about this. I bought this beer because a gentlemen from Pennsylvania told me it was so good that I would come in my pants and see pink elephants if I drink this beer. Nah, I’m just kidding. There’s no gentlemen in Pennsylvania.

JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2011
Deep amber pour. The nose is rich and a little bit spicy. Intensely hoppy. Soft fruitiness with a touch of sweetness on the back. Fruity with a nice aromatic spiciness. Pretty solid stuff.
