Pours clear with a dark yellow color. Foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Very floral, hoppy aroma. Crisp, clean pine-tree flavor. I generally don’t like IPA’s, but this one is good. A little on the sweet side, common with Redhooks brews. Clean palate, smooth. This beer is good enough that it may change my opinion of IPA’s.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2008 another run of the mill IPA. certainly not bad and carries all the characteristics of an IPA but in average amounts to average extents. certainly a nice, reasonably priced session beer from a reputable brewer. maybe the cool name and cool label is worth something? nothing wrong with this brew, but a bit too uncomplicated for my tastes.

Trev (1984) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2008
light gold colour with a thick white head. Aroma is grapefruit and floral initially, then a malty background. Flavour is hoppy at first but balances well with a mellow malt and clean finish. Very drinkable with alc. blended well.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2009 Pretty simple for an IPA, but highly drinkable. Definitely my favorite thing that I have had from Redhook. Mostly piney hop taste, but at 6.5% alcohol, there is some malt as well. Lighlty bitter finish. Medium bodied.

Darkover (1524) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Orange/bronze color with a beige head. Mild floral and piney hop aroma. Flavor of citrus hops and some malt. Finish is some what hoppy. Above average.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - MAY 3, 2008
Pours with a small white head and is a golden orange in color. Aroma is very faint with some bare hints of citrus. Mild citrus flavor comes through but little in the way of any lingering on the palate.

bethmatt0421 (337) - Covington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Smell is spice and even some florals making way. Flavor is a mild spice bite, but i cannot find those florals anywhere. Not very complex, but it is refreshing. A straightforward beer.

ilherps (248) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2008
It pours golden orange with a quickly diminishing fizzy head. Aroma is of pine, hops, in a slightly metallic sort of way. Its flavor is again of hops, a little citrus, and a bitter finish, but not too bitter. I think this is very drinkable, and also very affordable. This is by no means the best IPA, but its better than a lot of other beers that you can get for the same price.
