UPDATED: SEP 10, 2009 A translucent light copper beer with a modest head that doesnít last, a bit of sediment in the pout. Aroma is quite malty for an IPA, although cascade hops are there in the background. The flavor also does not scream hops to me like it should, malt is what stands out. Is a fair bit of hop bitterness in the finish, not enough for an IPA though.

zeke626 (447) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle; pours a yellowish brown. Aroma is a little fainter than a typical IPA, but consists of the usual floral hop scent and maybe a little yeast and malt. Body has a fairly solid smooth mouthfeel, albiet a little light on the hop flavor. Slight dry, citrus bite at the end with not a whole lot of aftertaste. An easy to drink IPA.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2008
Hazy yellow with thin white head, diminishing quickly. Light floral hop nose with some sweet malts mixed in. Pretty water with a long bad bitter finish. I generally like IPAs but this one is not a very good example of the style. A light citrus hop flavor comes through but for the most part itís just bitter, and watery on top of it. No thanks, next.

changeup45 (1719) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2008 Purchased 12 pack. This is quite good. I was pleasantly surprised. Itís got a nice crisp hoppy bite to it but not overpowering so perhaps it could use a touch more flavor. Very smooth. A nice entry level IPA. The gentle sweet bitter hoppiness makes it extremely easy to drink. A good summer selection.

KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2008
Draft @ the Wach: Letís Go Flyers!! Pours a clear amber w/ a small off-white head. Aroma is piney hops, all hops. Flavor is very hoppy w/ a hint of caramel malt, but mostly hops. Palate is pretty average & the beer pretty one dimensional. Not bad, not great. Letís see, this or Bud Light? Hmmm...

Draft. Bready nose with slight hop notes. Mostly malt, mild bitterness, drinkable but by no means an IPA.

SamGamgee (2451) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 7, 2008
Draught at Zodoís. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Indistinct hops in the aroma. Pretty clean malts, lightly hopped for a west coast IPA, but still enough to let you know what it is. Thereís a slight soapiness that keeps it from being better, but overall its pretty drinkable.

tgncc (3014) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 18, 2008
Piney hop aroma. Apperance is yellow/brown. Flavor is hoppy, spicy. Slight hop burn on the palate. Decent beer.

MacAnUltaigh (45) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2008
Faint aroma of hops and pine, and pours pale gold with little head. Flavor isnít bad, but bitterness isnít up to par with other IPAs. Goes down easy.

AmEricanbrew (6331) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 8, 2008
Clear light amber color. Mild perfumy, piney hop smell. Medium body and smooth. A decent flavor meshes caramel malt sweetness with a mildly bitter hop finish. Easy drinking. Better than Redhooks reputation.10157
