Bottle Golden pour with white head. Floral hop aroma and flavor. Not too strong flavor or aroma. Decent IPA, nothing special.

brettpace (176) - New York City, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2007
THis is not so great. Its missing in aroma, and hoppy taste. The hops are there, but not in a sufficient amount to satisfy a hop head like myself. Im sticking with Ale Smith.

georgekappus (296) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - MAY 27, 2007
On tap at La Zingara, Bethel. Poured a golden amber. Strong floral hop aroma. The hops carried through strong in the flavor as well. A nice example of an IPA. Va bene.

thegreenrooster (3505) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Pour is a golden with a large white head. Aroma is a very clean smelling pine hop with some malts in there. Flavor is a bit off. Some malts and a bit of the hops show up but nothing to make this one anything to look for. Watery and weak. There are much better IPA’s out there and dosen’t this brewer make an IPA already?

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2007
It seems to initially score with a grapefruit flavor and grassy aroma but it quickly dissipates as its watered down and one dimensional other than a decent alcohol content to have when the your home team is trailing 6-1 at PNC Field in Scranton Wilkes-Barre.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2007
Gold with a light film. Light hop nose. Nice but very light. Some sweetness. Not as bold as the add. The flavour builds through the bottle.

thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2007
This stuff is terrible. The aroma is skunky ass shit and rotten hops. Golden brown body. Medium palate. Taste is just plain bad. Some hop bitterness for sure, but really off flavor and out of balance.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Cloudy yellow, small head and just a miniscule amount of carbonation. Nice lace while drinking. Grass and pine aroma, a cantelopue sweetness at the end , a fine smell. Thick and flat palate. Tasted bitter and dry like uncoated aspirin. Just your run of the mill American IPA that overloads hops to make up for lack of a defining taste.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 Re-rate: Why even put the Redhook logo on this crap. A muddy, watery version of a beer that was good but is now crap. Very initial impression with aroma was a strong pacific/pine. Appearance was middle of the road-bronze with small head. Flavor was medium sweet malt with a medium hop bite. Overall not a bad beer for $6.50/sixer.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Virginia Beer Fest 2007. Clear amber body with a small white head. Light citrus hops aroma with some caramel. Light citrus hops flavor with a caramel background.
