I’ve never looked at a beer under a halogen desk lamp but damn, this beer has tiny bubbles and tiny suspended gold flakes - almost looks like suspended tiny bubbles. The beer itself is golden but the gold dust really is unique! Miller would die to have a beer that looks like this! Initial hop aroma was huge and somewhat sweet. Bitterness wasn’t what I might expect from Skippy but the finish is totally luscious - sort of like a long lingering embrace after a night with the one you love. A perfect beer to go to bed with.

22oz. Bottle (THANKS glkaiser): Aroma is lightly sweet, with scents of citrus and pine hops. Poured amber in color with a large, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Very good lacing. Sparkling. Tons of particles. Flavor is light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops and citrus. Not much malt flavor. Light to medium body. Watery texture. Average carbonation. Medium duration hop finish with a hint of caramel malts. Overall, a slightly below average IPA.

Very hazy amber...almost the perfect color for an IPA. A lot of yeast settlement at the bottom, along with a few floaties. Hops are very clear here: grapefruit, cedar, and some fresh fruit. Nose is hop-forward, as well. Not an overly bitter beer (if there is such a thing), well balanced, and well done. Yeast is present in the finish, along with a bit of alcohol and dry hops. Very nice!

Enniskillen (2045) - Salinas, California, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Gold amber, with a thin white head. Very heavy apricot and peach in the aroma, with a nice dose of hops. Taste is a strong peach accented by hoppiness, light pine, some floral. Solid IPA.

PSmith (35) - Kennewick, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Nice citrus and pine aroma. Pours a very nice orange color. At first taste, very nice but does not linger on the tongue, finishes weak, but I’d drink another.

Inviting citric aroma with slight pine wafts above this hazy, medium golden colored ale with nice carbonation and a thick, rocky white head. Delightfully refreshing hoppiness, mostly citric lemon and lime and some pepper spice. Well balanced with juicy fruit sweetness, fairly pale flavor without any overwhelming distraction of caramel and crystal. Leaves my tongue happy. This is real nice. Thanks André!

Pale golden yellow with small head. Strong hop aroma right off the bat, no screwing around. Big c hop aroma is not quite matched in the taste, but is still pretty strong. Just seems a bit thin. Bitter finish. I don’t get any sweetness out of this at all, pretty much just hops; That’s ok with me though:-)

Bottle: Color of dulled marmalade, large foamy white head, sticky lacing, loads of sediment, quite cloudy she be.   You guessed it, forwardly hoppy on the nose.   Very slight biscuit aspect as well.   Certainly hoppy on the tongue, but not overly biting.   A bit of floral aspect to this too.   Has an earthen touch, slightly dirty.   Malts are moderate, kinda finishes without much of them tho.   Fairly flavorful, lingering hop bitterness well after the finish.   Aside from the slight earthen aspect towards the finish, its quite clean and somewhat sweet up front.   Enjoyed this one more than I expected.   Would I have this again... you bet!
