Merrill (78) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bottle, cold. Light amber with various beige head. Sweet aroma - like wet hops! Consistency very like an average APA with a very strong hop profile. Like a hoppy home-brew. Light alcohol, and thin watery flavor. Over-priced at 9.99 for a 6. A pleasant session beer without a lot to brag about but big hops. Perhaps more malt to fill it out and to balance the hops. Iíll happily drink it if itís offered.

A pretty solid IPA, but not my favorite. It had notable smokey flavor and aroma. I prefer a fruitier IPA, but this was definitly a well crafted beer.

kevd193213 (903) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle. Copper pour with medium tan head. Aroma of sweet hops. Taste of pine and citrus hops with a bitter finish. Gets a slightly tarnished rep but not too shabby.

vulcanmeister (200) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Pours pale gold with nice creamy white head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity and floral. More malty than I would expect with a dash of bitterness, pine, and spice. Lingering sharpness but flavor fades as well. Not bad but could be even better.

Iím kind of new to IPAs, which is probably why I rated this higher than most. Reminds me of a flowery Sierra Nevada. Tends to get a little flat toward the bottom of the bottle, but that just might be my hand making it warm and less tasty. A lovely drink for a day of grilling.

calgone (17) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Bottled. Light orange/copper color. Fruity aroma with pretty strong American hop aroma. Smells pretty good I think. Very easy to drink, perhaps too much so. Not extremely bitter. I think its a nice refreshing beer. Finishes a bit grassy.

Average IPA all around. Nothing unique, but still refreshing and easy to drink.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Draft. Poured pale yellow gold in color with a white frothy head. I was surprised to see an IPA quite this pale. Aroma mostly of floral hops and mildly sweet. Taste is more along the lines of an APA. The floral hops are present but in gereral its pretty one dimensional.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 28, 2008
Pours a hazy golden with shades of orange. Creamy head. Very hoppy smell and taste. Floral, sweet, tart, its all there but nothing special. All the hop flavors seem to fall within a certain range so there is nothing exciting about this one. Very average IPA.

Cybercat (3846) - Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2008
This comes out of the tap a pretty transparent golden with a fairly thick, fine-bubbled white head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly fruity. Flavor is strong and quite hoppy, not all that bitter. Texture has something of an edge, but it is not overly rough. Not the best IPA I have had, but worth a try.
