UPDATED: MAY 16, 2007 Bottle pours a cloudy light yellow with a large white head. Huge spicy hop aroma. Light malts, and nore big spicy hip flavor. Lots for a Pale. Creamy full palatte and soft carbonation. Very nice. Thanks to Jake65 for this one, my 100th IPA rated

From a 22oz Bottle. Slightly hazy, golden colored pour with a thick layer of foamy white head. Fresh hoppy aromas of lemon zest, white grapefruit, and freshly mown grass - very crisp and refreshing bouquet. Fairly light, well carbonated mouthfeel with a nice thirst quenching quality. Interesting flavor complexity; the beer has an intense amount of citrusy character on the tongue and in the nose, but the perceived bitterness is quite low in comparison. Grapefruit zest and dandelion leaves start out the flavors before finishing in an amost pilsener clean bang. Great beer for incorporating a lot of hop flavor without punching you in the face with overpowering bitterness.

I had this at the Port 1st Anniv Party. Strong presence of hops, pine and grapefruit. A Very good IPA.

scoobyluv (511) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2007
this was my 1st IPA of the night and i was so excited. pear colored. and nothing quite like the smell of apricots and hops. quite a hoppy bite on initial sip but tames down quickly. very smooth and enjoyable

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Poured a very clear straw color with a modest white head. Decent grassy hop aroma. Taste has an earthy/citrusy hop character with the finish being quite robust. Overall very good, but eclipsed by the Wipeout IPA which was stronger on all fronts.

Draft at Port 1st Anniv Party. Lots of hops aromas off this golden ale with nice white head. Citrus and vanilla on the flavor too. Very nice IPA right up there with one of my favorites... Wipe Out.

22 oz bomber courtesy of trade with Larry. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a thick white fluffy head. Nice initial lacing. Aroma of floral light pine hops and a bit of yeast. Taste is hoppy with floral and piney undertones. A sourdough yeasty finish. Very nice and refreshing.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - MAY 7, 2007
A really nice aroma of juicy hops, grapefruity, light fleshy fruits and malt. Flavors were pretty much on par with the aromas. A really nicely balanced IPA, which is a good thing in my book. Just the right amount of juicy hops to get it going and a sweet malt backbone to keep it going."

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - MAY 7, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2007 Tasted at the Lost Abbey 1st Anniversary. I had been drinking Bourbon-Barrel Angel’s Share prior to tasting this, so I rated it lower. Kind of mild for an IPA, and not quite sweet enough. Pale yellow color. Little head (probably carbonation setup). I’m not sure where it fits. Rerate: Oct 2007: 6,2.5,6,3,13:3.05

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2007 Sampler on tap at the Lost Abbey 1st Anniversary. I had been drinking Bourbon-Barrel Angel’s Share prior to tasting this, so I think my palate was a bit wrecked. Nice light golden color with a small head. Really great floral aroma of hay, pine and grapefruit. Refreshing, crisp and hoppy. A really nice IPA. Bottled. 10/25/07 The green floral aroma of fresh cut hops really explodes out of the bottle, impressive. Light pale color with excellent head retention. Bursting with bitterness and crisp carbonation, an excellent session beer. Easy to drink and begs for you to take another sip. Slightly peppery but well-balanced hop profile slams the palate and goes down nicely.
