muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 23, 2007
12 ounce bottle purchased at City Market (May 22 2007) and consumed rather cold from an Allagash glass. Alllll right, lessee here....a "new" IPA from Red Hook, hmmm, rated in the....5th percentile for the style? Oh, this babyís gonna rock....not that Iím prejudiced or nothiní. A moderate off-white head spews forth, dying quickly and leaving no real lacing atop the dull, transparent brassy body.....fruity nose isnít that different from the Sea Dog Apricrap beer I just had, to be honest: aprictot/peach notes dominate, there are some nice, perfumy/resinous fresh hop notes after it sits a while, but nothing really interesting here folks....hey, itís not too bad on the first sip, the fruitiness a bit less than Iíd guess from the nose, the hops a bit stronger, but quickly it dulls and the finish becomes very cardboardy and dry indeed, with the syrupy, cloying midsection not too enticing either. All in all....itís about what I expected from Red Hook. Pass.

this beer actually looks great. golden with a nice white head that lasts forever.....and it even leaves good lacing......but thats where the fun stops. the aroma....meh...light caramel and piney hops....but its light. flavor bitter piney caramel with a very piney bitter finish and a hint of orange. light to medium body. moderate almost lively carbonation. ok......but it just leaves me wishing that i had picked up the two hearted that was sitting right next to it instead.

Ibrew2or3 (7312) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Pours clear gold in color with bright white head. The aroma has a muted hoppiness that seems floral. Behind that is a very faint sugary maltiness. The flavor is mild floral hop bitterness and some floral hop flavor. The hops start to seem a bit grassy too. Like the aroma there is only a faint sweet maltiness.

Oakes (13156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2007
Slightly hazy golden colour. Woody, grassy aroma. Sweetish grainy taste with hints of pine and pale malt. OK starter micro, but leaves the seasoned PNW IPA drinker wanting.

ilikestuff (224) - Irving, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Not a fan of the aroma, pine & earthy with burnt hops.. Obvious pine flavor with citrusy notes. Little malt, light body, little/no head, light carbonation. Hop flavor seems odd. This one has potential, but I prefer their regular IPA.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2007
surprised ratings seem so low for this...pours light amber with medium-sized white head..aroma of caramel malt and pine hops..flavor is heavy in pine and citrus, little malt, and a bitter, nutty finish...not bad and quite quaffable

Aurelius (4572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2007 This is the first rating that I have actually input directly from my cell phone. Ainít technology wonderful? Fair appearance, clean label, golden brew with a cumulous whitish head. Caramel, hop and lightly fishy water aroma. Citric hop, buttery, well-brewed, well-bittered, light sweetness, tangy. Medium, to medium-heavy mouth, grassy sweet finish.

spector (906) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Skunked hops and some slight malt made up the aroma.Pours a light copper with a thin off white head.At best the flavor is very light hops.Very thin mouthfeel with a skunked finish.

TheBeerGod (5462) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Placed conveniently next to the hammer contest at the Virginia Beer Festival. Soft amber pour. Small white head. Nose is pine and citrus. Soft malts. Hits the tongue with more pine and softer citrus peel. Soft caramel and toasted maltiness too. Body is light-medium with moderate carbonation. Finishes with more pine and citrus, and softer malts. Typical.

nick76 (4302) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2007
The aroma has citrus and pine hops as well as plenty of caramel malt. The appearance is gold with an amber hue. The flavor is well hopped with both the citrus and pine as well as malt to balance. The malt however is more biscuit like than caramel like. Still there is enough sweetness to balance the bitterness. The palate is smooth but a tad thin and the finish nutty and piny. Overall a good American style IPA. Nice Beer!
