Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 15, 2008
On tap. The pour was a pale copper that almost seemed more tan. A thin white head that produced little lacing. The aroma was cardboard and pine. Dry, not much sweetness balancing against it. The flavor was dry hops with some floral notes. Very little sweetness. Thin, easy drinking. Not very exciting.

Bottle poured into a plastic cup at the Comcast Center. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I got it because it seemed like a decent choice given my only other options: bud, bud light, smirnoff ice, coors light. Nice piney aroma and flavor. Not the best IPA, but worth a try.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2009 Pours a very yellow color with medium head. Aroma of piney hops. Tastes of floral hops and slight flavor of pines and some citrus and malts. Very drinkable with a medium bitter finish but honestly more of a pale ale.

jackcarlisle (2) - chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2008 does not count
from bottle, poured to glass. nice head, some of which lingers like soap. good looking beer. very pleasant aroma, hops and tangerine. taste, sweet and fairly complex: hops, fruit (peach, plum, orange), slightly nutty and slightly caramel. a little "woodsy" like pine sap. strong taste for a second, then drops dramatically. somewhat bitter aftertaste, hoppy, nutty (particularly almond) and pine sap again. feels like soapy or oily water in the mouth. a little fizzy, nowhere near heavy. i like this beer, another good redhook product.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Slightly hazy yellowish amber with a great nose of aromatic American hops and fruit salad. Simple, highly drinkable and very nice.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bomber. Pours a clear gold with a soap scum white head and zero lacing. Nose is malt and sweet citrus. Taste is caramel, fruity juicyfruit gum and a mild bitter piney hop finish. Light to medium mouth feel. Doesn’t hold up well with the big gun IPAs, but it’s drinkable and sessionable at this ABV, which is what I think this was intended.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Hazy gold, no head. Lovely hoppy aroma, some fruit salad in mouth. Nice to have some US hops at last. It’s somewhat peppery. Good tasty hops. Touch of syrup to the malts and a little too empty on the toffee malts, but fine.

KimJohansen (10420) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2008
Clear amber with tiny off white head. Sweet aroma with hoppy and caramel notes. Sweet flavor with hoppy, piney and caramel notes. Dry and bitter finish.

Not a bad IPA nothing outstanding. Dry hoppiness with a decent duration. Clear amber/yellow body. Decent head with good lacing. Average at best.
