Pours a light little amber color with a medium off white head. Smells of light hops and grapefruit citrus. Nothing complex, smells a little hoppy like it should. The flavor had a decent amount of hops to it, certainly held its own in that regard. Some grapefruit citrus lingers in the finish and the aftertaste with a decent hop bitterness as well. Solid little IPA, wasn’t expecting too much and was pleasantly surprised.

POured a dark yellow color with a white head. Aroma was a lttle bit of spicey hops, some malt, a bit weak. Flavor was also a bit watery, but a nice hop balance form wat was there.

Pours gold into a shaker. Head quickly recedes to hug rim leaving sickly lacing. Strawberries and resin aromas. Crisp with sour hops from front to back.

tsetlock (66) - Hartland Twp, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2008
Nice IPA with medium head. High lacing. A definate hoppy aroma with an acholol scent. Not peppery, with a strong hoppy taste. No aftertaste, that is not too bitter.

pj1855 (160) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2008
I’m not a huge fan of the IPA’s but this beer is not too bad. Golden color. Average sized head. Great lacing. Sweet hoppy aroma. Flavor has a good mixture of sweet caramel and hops.

I’m not sure why I keep looking forward to trying red hook beers. I guess their blond ale tricked me... This was an eh IPA. There was not a good malt background to build the hop aroma and bitterness upon and the hoppiness itself was less than expected with a metal taste to it.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Quite possibly the worst IPA that’s ever been my experience to drink. Very little hoppiness or citrus flavor or anything that I’ve come to know and love from the style. This just is not good at all.
