MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Pour gave tons of head. Aroma has some odd spice notes, almost soapy. Flavor is also somewhat soapy, not very india of a pale ale. I should have passed on this one.

mjg74 (2950) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Bottle. Pours a light amber color. Aroma is lightly hoppy with some malt present. A little sweet. Flavour is a balance of hops and malts. Finish is rather bitter, but over done. Good IPA, but not anything special.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Nicely done, a coppered bodied brew with a heft yellowish head and an aroma of orange blossoms and rose petals. The solid, caramel malt backbone has a bit of a juicy, citric fruit taste topped with some mild floral hop bitterness. This is kind of an easy-going, relaxed IPA, but very tasty and refreshing.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Bottle. Pours copper color and clear with a small foamy white head. Aroma is sweet ripe fruits - orange and peach - a bit of honey with nice counterpoint of floral and earthy hops. Flavor also very sweet, again ripe fruits with lemon grass and spruce hops and a hint of pungent spice in the aftertaste. Medium body and very smooth and mellow carbonation. Good, drinkable IPA.

IslandHaole (1207) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - JUN 18, 2005
On tap @ Pike: Light Amber with a medium beige head. Citrus fruit in the nose, sweet, lemony, pine....nice hop flavor too. One of their better brews!

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Draft @Pike Pub. Clear copper with very small bubbles, Wispy head has great staying power and leaves lots of sticky lace. Biscuit, hop, and slight tropical fruit aromas. Fruity malt and piney hop flavors. Medium body, smooth, zesty. Long resiny, bittersweet finish. Bitterness is a little harsh. Overall, a solid American IPA.

Panzuriel (1722) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Dark amber colored liquid with a hazy quality. Fine head. Nose of tangy acrid hops. Taste full and powerful, but not opressive with hops. nice clean if robustly tangy finish.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Bottle... Hazy orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Nose of citrusy, floral, piney hops... the whole ball of wax. The flavor is resiny and piney. Moderately bitter with notes of toffee and grapefruit. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, clover finish. Thanks go out to scraff for sharing.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Dark amber, creamy off white head. Nose held soft notes of juicy grapefruit, earthy pine, sweet toffee brittle, and a slight hint of florals. Very well balanced with the citrusy hops and sweet malty backbone playing off each other nicely. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying, bittersweet finish. Good session IPA. Thanks go out to my neighbors for grabbing this and a few other brews for me on their tour of Seattle....
