Amber-gold with good, foamy white head / Nose of fresh pine and weed / Medium body, somewhat chewy, very dry throughout becoming bitter on the finish / Flavors of cut pine with burnt sugar and grapefruit notes / A bit out of balance but a good effort.

From a 12 oz bottle @ 18 Seaboard in Raleigh NC - poured a cloudy orange with a white head - aroma of citrus, hops and pine. Nice citrusy taste with plenty of hops, spice and pine. Tasty IPA that doesn’t try to over-do it.

There is an almost candied grapefruit quality to the hops here. The bitterness is appropriate for the malt. Easily drinkable.

bhensonb (13980) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours amber with a decent whit head. Aroma is nicely floral/citrus. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Could be a touch of diacetyl in the flavor. Otherwise nice floral/citrus hop over a slightly roasted malt. Finishes a bit buttery, but definitely bitter.

Bottle- Pours acopper color with a billowy head andnice lacing. Aroma of citrusand pine along with fresh grain. Taste of citrus and fresh grain. A nice bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and refreshing. Well balanced. Alcohol is well hidden. Much better beer than the name implies. Not an overpowering IPA. Easy drinker

jsquire (4115) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Murky amber color out of the bottle with a thin, whispy white head. Some perfumy and citrus hop notes in the nose. Strong malty backbone of stale bread with lots of grapefruit rind and applesauce flavors. Pretty standard IPA.

Pretty, brassy pour. Crisp hop aroma. Medium bitter hop finish. Not bad but pretty forgettable.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2010
12 oz bottle, BBE November 2009, from Supreme Liquors, Cambridge MA, drunk on 24 October 2009. Marginally hazy amber colour. Loose off-white head. Distinct grassy hop aroma - moist and a touch clammy. Sweetish touches initially on the palate followed by a developing bitterness. Hops are grapefruit accented. Some balancing biscuity malt. Bitterness lingers into the finish and aftertaste. Light, slightly sharp mouthfeel. Not a blockbuster IPA but a good, clean, sraightforward drinking beer.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2010
12oz. Bottle: Gusher! Aroma of Earthy hops, raw dough, Ringwood yeast, slight honey, and some sweeter malts. Poured orange/amber in color with a large, rocky, fluffy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Lightly sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of caramel malt, hops, Earth, and a little diacetyl from Shipyard’s Ringwood yeast obsession. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Earthy hop and slight caramel finish is heavily bitter, lingering, and dry.
