The beer was pretty good nice and mild flavor not to over the top with hops. I would order it.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2010
Draught. Good pungent hop resin aromas, very pine-heavy with grapefruit notes. Clear gold with a thin white head. Mild bitterness, subpar hop flavor and a solid malt backbone. Nice dryness and no lingering astringency, just enough to give some bite. Crisp, snappy mouthfeel with a dry finish.

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Tap at the brewpub - hazy orange, with good head retention - a fairly standard brewpub IPA, with plenty of resiny hop bitterness to keep fans of the style happy - a fair bit of caramel malt sweetness to keep it from being overly bitter - there is a touch of DMS/vegetal character, but the hops do a good job of hiding it - flawed, but drinkable.

HonkeyBra (3275) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Crushed with CaryTheDude. orangy yellow pour. Bitter aroma. Bitter, lemony taste. Kind of lame, typical brewpub ipa. Bitter finish with lots of carbonation.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Tap @ Pumphouse: Poured a lightly hazed amber color with a medium sized off-white head. Citrusy aroma with grapefruit hops and a hint of spicy rye. Caramel base. Thin grapefruit juice taste with a malty finish. Hop bitterness and rye spice on the very end. Dry finish and light body.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 10/14/07: Pours a transparent amber copper with a frothy, nicely-lacing off-white head. Aroma of fresh grapefruity hops and some caramely malt. Starts crisp and sweet with good resiny bittering and flavor hops with some toasted caramel maltiness toward a smooth, enjoyable bittersweet finish. A nice IPA.
