Rated 7/14/07. On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in Orlando. Medium golden body with a small white head. Some lacing, but not much. Aroma was fairly neutral for an IPA. Some mild hop bitterness, caramel malts and a bit of spices. Flavor was rather bland for the style. Slight bitterness, caramel, flowers and spices all muddles together. Watery body. Smooth finish. Easy to drink, but not outstanding.

Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Sampled at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits Friday evening beer tasting social. Pours a semi-clear golden straw colored brew with a lively white head. Aroma of sweet multi-grain malt, and a touch of citrus zest. Taste is medium bodied, well carbonated with some dry malt flavor. Finish is a little watery, light pine and then a clean aftertaste. A light IPA for a beginner who want to start sampling IPA.

Supposedly a new recipe. Nice hoppy nose that was the highlight of the Redhook run. Light hopy body with a dry finish.

Wow, talk about false advertising or something. This beer reminded me of one of those English blond ales or some light summer beer. Its a hoppy beer, but not IPA hops. Not even English style hoppy. Just kind of a nice summer beer.

Look: Light amber/orange. Poured with practically no head. The smell is a little hoppy, not much in the smell department. Fruity overtones. Grapefruity. The taste is mild bitterness, very smooth, fruity. Mild IPA. Great drinkability

Below average IPA. Pretty bland all around. Some hops an a dry finish. Try something else.

Had on draft at a local bar. Not a big fan of IPA’s but this one was pretty decent. It was a nice hot day out and it sure hit the spot. Not a style I favor too much yet.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle. Pours average amber and thin, but it’s nice to look at. Smells like candied apricot and sugary pine with bits of orange. Tastes like metallic grapefruit with copper-coated orange. Average mouthfeel. Bizarre tasting beer, to say the least.

Pours a four finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Light clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Flavor actually fairly balanced for an IPA some sweetness with very slight bitter finish. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Capital Convenience Concord, NH.
