DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Pours a yellowish light amber with an inch of frothy white head. Slightly sweet aroma with a lot of hops. Light, fizzy body with only a little sweet fruit taste before the mediocre hop finish. Leaves a light bitter that doesnít really last. Decent session IPA.

Pours clear amber. Piney hops on the nose. The taste starts citrusy and finishes hoppy. Smooth. Not as hoppy as the top quality IPAs, but still enjoyable. Not as bad as its rated.

zach8270 (3802) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2008
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy light orange color with a very thin and soapy white head. Aroma is hoppy and floral with some notes of grapefruit and malt. Flavor tastes like a pretty standard IPA; bitter and floral hops at the beginning with a lightly sweet and citrusy middle with a very slight bitter finish. Aftertaste is almost nonexistent.

Nice amber color with a nose of grapefruit and hops. Taste is hoppy with a touch of fruit and a nice finish. A good IPA.

ketchepillar (1172) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Surprised to see this is rated so poorly. Itís not great, but nowhere near bad. Pleasant hoppiness in the aroma, but itís a bit weak. A little too sweet for my tastes as well. This beer is a bit confused, it wants to have the force of a strong west coast IPA, but, coming from Redhook, it must also bitch out and tame things down a little for mass appeal. Close to being a very good IPA, but not quite.

The aroma is hoppy and flowerish - the flavor is hoppy and then sweet before it goes over to a bitter aftertaste.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Bottled on 110607. Off-whte head that mostly diiminished, splotchy amounts of lacing, transparent, slow rising carbonation, and a yellow hue. The nose was hoppy, citrus, floral, sweet and some malt. The flavor was hoppy, citrus, some caramel malt and finishes sticky and somewhat gummy. The mouthfeel was fairly smooth with a bit of stickiness. Medium in body. An IPA that is not over-the-top hops, drinkable but not anything all that special IMO. A lot better ones of this style to be had.

Draft - Pours a copper color with a medium white head. Mild hoppy aroma, with hints of orange. sweet taste, with medium hop notes. Drinkable but not great.

Gold color with an average head. Aroma is of hops. Taste is hoppy but it weak for an IPA.
