OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2005
Couleur orange pale allant vers l’ambrée, apparence plutôt claire et translucide. Faible quantité de mousse blanche concassée. Aromes de citrons, pamplemousse sous une faible touche de caramel. Devenant très houblonné en bouche, pas de solide base de malt pour venir balancer. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, carbonatation bien active. Bien fait quoique semble rapidement unidimensionnelle!

fonefan (40503) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2007
Cask gravity @ GBBF 2007, London. Light unclear medium amber color with virtually none, off-white head. Aroma is moderate hoppy, pine, citrus, grapefriut. Flavor is light to moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

PilsnerPeter (3034) - Flushing, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Bottle thanks to Dickinsonbeer: Bronze pour. Has a crisp and fruity hop nose. Lots of apple skin and perfumy suggestions in the nose. Hops are present in the flavor, but seem subdued. Very mild overall, with a grainy malt hint toward the finish.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2009
Courtesy of tpd975. Pours hazy brownish-copper with micro thin off white head. The aroma is earthy and sweet with a dash of floral hops and lavender. The taste is much the same with an initial note of vague hop bitterness that seems to be earthy and floral in nature. It then becomes a bit more sweet with sugar, caramel and molasses. Interesting IPA.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2006 2004 draught at the brewery. Light orange color, moderately hazy with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma has plenty of fresh NW hops in it. Flavor is much the same. While it’s good and drinkable, it’s about the same as every other american india pale ale. Low malting leads to low sweetness. Tons of bitter hops contributing a mild astringency. Whatever, certainly makes for a very uninspired review.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Vermont Brewers’ Fest 2006, draught sample. Dark caramel with faint reddish hint, little head....lightly spicy/fruity nose, citrus and peaches and maybe a hint of cherry, pleasant but unassuming....body is smooth, clean and sweet with a moderate hoppy attack at the finish, medium-bodied and average carbonation....not much to say here, this is not at all bad but just has no panache, rather a weaker offering from this fine brewpub.
Earlier Rating: 5/26/2005 Total Score: 3.3
Sampled at the brewpub in the company of the munificent and mysterious Mr. ClarkVV. Almost clear medium amber with excellent head retention...hoppy-sweet nose isn’t distinctive at all but quite fresh and tingly...quite bitter throughout, grainy and dry...not my favorite kind of IPA, I like more sweetness and body and a bit of pungency typically...but this like all of Portsmouth’s beers is well made without flaws and quite drinkable.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Slightly cloudy amber with a thin soapy head. Rosuing creates a thicker head. Very mild earthy hop aroma, slightly astringent. Taste is kind of soapy, and the hop character is not very robust. Still, a decent IPA.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Very light nose with traces of citrus. Pours golden blonde with a thin white head. Very mild flavor hops of a tropical fruit quality, with a mild bitterness. A decent session beer.

JK (5331) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Light gold color. Hop aroma and hop flavor. Fresh bread, and a little citrus. Medium palate. Drinkable enough, a middle of the road ipa.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Bottle, thanks to someone. Light orange-amber pour. Aroma is sweet malt, lots of grapefruit, slightly metallic. The mouthfeel is thin. The flavor is grainy malt and mild citrus bitterness, but like a poorly dry-hopped beer.
