Unique69crazy (120) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 5, 2008
Pours tan and slightly cloudy. Aroma isnít too strong with this one, a hoppiness I presume, was expecting a little more taste with this brew. Does have a bite followed by a grassy aftertaste.

tomciccateri (1027) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle dated 3 months prior. Medium body, hop-over-malt flavor balance. Moderate hop bitterness with underlying slightly sweet malty flavor. A reasonable balance. Canít compete with micro/brewpub extreme flavors in their IPAs but fine for a mass-marketed $6/six-pack product.

illidurit (2224) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 3, 2008
On tap at some crappy dive bar. Poured into a pint glass. Orange color with an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is very muted, with a faint soapy hoppiness and a touch of sweetness. Flavor is pretty awful. Thin grainy maltiness with a dose of diacetyl, then soapiness, then a pathetic hop finish that is reasonably bitter but flavorless. This is supposed to be an IPA?? Mouthfeel is average, body is thinnish.

FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2008
12 ounce bottle- pours a clear golden yellow with a lasting, if scant, white head. The aroma had a hint of fish. Taste was fresh, with only the slightest citrus hint, (luckily, the fish was absent). Refreshing and enjoyable without the typical IPA wince.

Good, drinkable IPA. doesnít overwhelm you with hops. You can drink several of these and not feel your lips puckering.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Draft at Cataqua Public House. Pours clear light amber in color with white head. Aroma light citrus hops. Taste citrus hops and light malt with light bitter and clean finish. Good every day drinking IPA.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Clear amber color. Smell of hops, malt, citrus and flowers. Taste of hops, citrus, malt and grass. Very watery. Hardly no flavor.

garretjax (103) - Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Slightly hazy golden color with a large white head. Malty aroma with maybe a hidden citrus scent. Light body and lower carbonation. Some bitterness that indicates hops, but not a lot. A very subdued citrus hint in the flavor. A bit heavy in the thicke, short finish.

highibus (747) - Vail, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Decent color and head, but little aroma. But only a decent ipa. I wonít buy again, but it is not terrible.
