PorterPounder (5830) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle. Light copper pour, soft, but thin white head. Brief sprucey aroma, hint of mint. Typical grapefruity citrusy flavor with not much of a malty backbone. Some traces of maple syrup and a hint of nuttiness redeems it a bit, Stinging mouthfeel which is a bit on the thin side.

desurfer (1242) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Clear deep gold body and a rocky white head. Malty, slightly hoppy aroma. Flavor is rich, with plenty of doughy malts counterbalancing some solid citrusy hops. The finish is sticky sweet and bitter. It’s not great, but surely better than the current rating it garners on this site.

bboven (103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Smells of hops and slighgt roasted malt. I liked the hoppiness a lot; not expecting it but I love hops, so it was a pleasant surprise. I consider red hook kind mid-grade, but this is my favorite one from them so far.

agl108 (824) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2007
12 oz. bottle at Zeno’s, Penn State. Poured clear, light amber with no head retention. Weak IPA all around, aroma, flavor, palate. C’mon Redhook, step it up.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Draught. Clear amber color with a slight grapefruit hop aroma. Flavor mostly dry and moderately hoppy---grapefruit with some resin. Seems a bit off-center. Any hop character here seems accentuated only because the maltiness is kind of weak. Can’t really say this is any better or worse than the regular RH IPA.

Braudog (5938) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Bottle: poured fairly light orange, quite still, with a bright white thin but almost rocky head. Significant lacing remains. Light citrusy aroma. Light on the palate, this is a fairly well balanced brew, with a real light malt foundation and a tangy bitterness in the flourish. Maybe not the textbook example of an IPA, but this is a drinkable light ale with a pretty big bite to it. Better than the ratings suggest. (#2845, 5/7/2007)

A decent IPA. Not bad at all. Hoppiness is at a good level. No weird flavors or anything. One of redhooks better offerings.

Ernest (6485) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle. Head is initiall small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A very rudimentary, plain example. Very mild for an American IPA. Dull, even.

pours a bright gold with a medium sized white head. aroma of peaches. flavor is again kind of peachy and hoppy. maybe it’s because this is my first beer of the night, but, i can’t find anything wrong with this. at least not enough to place it in the 30 percentile. probably more of an apa.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - MAY 4, 2007
nice foamy white head on top of a straw colored beer. Nice cascade hop aroma, slightly over the top bittering with grapefruit/straw notes. Really missing the malt flavor that it should have, the hops are too over the top.
