(bottled Aug 26 08): Pours a pale amber body, very clear. Very white head, small & diminishing. Grapefruity hoppy aroma, some maltiness. Nutty smell. Nutty taste, some hoppiness. Smooth malty taste. Almost like grapenuts. Good flavor. Nice fruitiness.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - SEP 18, 2008
Approached this one with somewhat low expectations and surprised by how nice this brew actually was. Pleasant piney citrus nose from the clear golden-orange body. Flavour carries more of the same with a bit of bittersweet caramel and singed hops. The body of this brew suffers from lack of a sturdy malty backbone and the finish is nothing grand, but it will do for now. Nothing special but not horrible. Approach with low expectations and be rewarded with an easy drink.

Bottle. Thin bodied. Overly bitter with no malt balance. Very average brew with nothing to make it stick out.

DonMagi (5594) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2008
Cask at GBBF at the ladyboy table. Alround rating: Excellent balance, lychee, grapefruit, a solid IPA, excellent hop character and super dirnkable. Im monumentally suprized by a score this low, perhaps the bottles are pasturised?

MadIndian (2718) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Bottle from Canals. A thin bodied IPA that leaves little to the imagination. There is nothing out standing here it is average at best and thats not a horrible thing.

jb (2829) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Probably the best I’ve had from Redhook. Orange with great lacing. Left rings along the way as I drank it. Very strong pine and grapefruit notes both present. Not much malt as per IPA, but very moist, smooth, silky mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

daknole (10829) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle. Hmmm is this an IPA or a bland Pale Ale? I would have expected more out of this beer. However if it were in the pale ale category it would probably score fairly high...it tastes good just too damn light to be a true IPA. Oh well.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a golden color with a thin head. Faint aroma of hops, with some dust and grain in there as well. A very mild IPA to say the least. The flavor wasn’t bad, as it was a pretty balanced beer. However, the hint of decent hop notes was completely negated by the malty body and light palate. Personally, I think this is a good ’IPA starter’ beer to introduce to my pale lager loving friends.

Kaga (4) - Muncie, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2008 does not count
aroma: spruce, basement aromas, appearance: pale, sparkling, frothy head flavor: lightly bitter (FOR AN IPA) palate: medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter finish, overall impression: it’s important not to pigeon hole IPA’s, but this honestly (OBJECTIVELY) wasn’t my favorite beer. it seemed to have all of the bitter and negative qualities of an IPA without all of the wonderfully robust flavors and "kick you ass" kick. Looks BEAUTIFUL, but that doesn’t carry weight if it doesn’t taste good. I wouldn’t pay to drink this again.

Hardly worthy of being an IPA, the hops are weak at best. Bland and light body.
