On tap at Ashford Pub. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head that diminishes rather quickly. The aroma is a light hop and citrus. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a strong grapefruit with a slighty bitter finish, real easy to drink. A decent IPA from Redhook.

Sample @ Portsmouth, NH brewery. Pours a golden amber color with a short and barely-lingering white head. Aroma is earthy notes and citrus hops. Taste is slightly citrusy, with a slight hop bitterness and very little complexity or finish to speak of. A bit watery, and not what it could have been.

Pours a dark golden color with white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Lacing on glass was pretty nice. Aroma was of citrus hops and kind of grassy. Taste is also citrusy with grapefruit flavors definitely evident. Mouthfeel was good. This might not be the most complex IPA, but it is good IMO, I enjoyed it, and I would buy again.

Pours a clear yellow with small white head. Thin hop flavor - not much else going on here although it is drinkable.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2007
On tap at the Bier Stube in Moline. Light orange pour. Slightly floral hop aroma. Pretty simple flavor-wise: just a bit of citrusy hops and not too much malt to back it up. A simple beer and easy to drink.

355 ml bottle dated 112007. Pours almost orange with a significant amount of carbonation and a weak off-white head. The hops aroma is immediately evident as well as something kind of floral. Kind of a watery mouth feel, which was slightly disappointing but the hops flavor was powerful, which balanced the drinking pleasure a bit. I used to shy away from IPAís, but lately I have been getting into them more. This one is more approachable for me. Not too strong but strong enough to bring out the best of an IPA.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Poured a clear light copper color with a small white head. Floral and citrus hop is moderate. Light caramel malt underneath. Hoppy start with more floral and citrus notes. Fairly dry bitter mildly bitter finish. Light to medium bodied.

Disappointing for an IPA. I was expecting for the hops to kick in except the donít... and fall off the palate. Iím sure this is better on draught, like most things, but I await the day to try that. Average, at best, India Pale Ale that leaves much to be desired.

webjedi (250) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Generally pleasant generic over-hopped IPA. Not too bitter, not too sweet, and for something approaching a macro brewery, itís something better to fallback on when nothing else is available (much like a Guinness when given the choice of Bud and Coors). Granted, its one of the better Red Hook brews that Iíve has as well. (Bottle - way too many times)

If you are trying to get someone to start to like different beers this is a good starter IPA. Light hoppy aroma, pours with a white sudsy head. Decent hoppy flavor, well balanced. IPA light, but still not a bad beer.
