Bottled 06 19 07. Orange gold with a small cap that tries to lasts. Aroma of pine resin and slight grapefruit fades in proportion to the head diminishing. Flavor is citrus, pine, and spicy honey malt. Also some iodophore seems to be in there, and I switched glasses several times to make sure it was not from my chugging pint glass. Seems like some European style hops and/or yeast put a bit of a muddling damper on what could be a pretty flavorful IPA. Palate is almost medium and fairly smooth, with a drying finish. Nothing really outstanding, but not bad.

Cole’s IPA Fest. Light hops aroma,hints of malt, amber, small white head. Flavour is a nice melding of orange and malt. Light bodied, balanced, good mouthfeel. Decent.

12oz bottle-A yellow body with a big white head and an aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of mild hops and citrus. Not bad but was expecting more from this brewery. Maybe AB has their hooks in them.

On tap at Old Chicago. Nothing very special to note about the appearance or aroma. The aroma did hint at what was to come, and it wasn’t good. The taste was a lot maltier than an IPA should be, and the flavour is not very good. The hops had a very overdone citric taste, like grapefruit, but the balance was way off. And that was on top of the rather cheap and overdone malt flavour. Finish was quite astringent. Strangley, it was easy enough to drink despite the flavour and this was possibly its only saving grace. I’ll pass on trying this again.

Pours straw golden with a nice thick white head. Piny, lemon grass aroma, with a just a bit of a malty undertone. Flavor follows the aroma nicely although a bit watery. Palate is light/medium, with a nice smooth mouth-feel. Good, but not great, what I would refer to as an entry level IPA, which definitely has it’s own place.

Cask@GBBF2007. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is hoppy fruits along with grass. Flavour is really grassy and quite earthy. A quite boring IPA.

33cl bottle in Vegas. An okay IPA but I’m not the biggest IPA fan in general. Easily drinkable.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Pours deep golden and well-hazed with moderate carbonation under a small, quick-fading white head. Sour, grassy aroma with a lemon-drop of sweetness. Low pine notes. Nicely balanced flavor as malts creep in slowly behind a consistent grapefruit and pine bitterness, but it has a lingering essence of plastic taking away from it. Mid-bodied with a well-placed tingle of sharpness and a finishing twang of astringence.

Meh, it’s okay. Nothing special, here, and many more worthy IPAs are easily acquired.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2007
bottled. Hazy pale orange (piss) colored ale. Nose of lite grass w/ alcohol. The taste here is slightly off-putting w/ that grassy thing going on thru the end. The hops never bite & are far from crisp. Watery. A tad stronger pale ale that is close to being drinkable. Redhook flops again.
