Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2008
On tap. Pours golden orange with a foamy white head leaving a light lace. Slightly citrus hop smell with a little bit of earthy grain/pine. Sweet malt dominated. Taste is similar to the aroma with a touch of honey and a lighter body. Really, just an average beer with a tad bit of hop bitterness that beats having a light beer for happy hour.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle shared by Springslicker. Pours orange with a thin white head that does leave light lacing. The aroma is slightly grainy with backing of a mix of malt and hops. The flavor finds orange and caramel. Slight pine flavor also. Light to medium body. Decent, went well with Jay’s jambalaya.

Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2008
12 oz bottle. Wish I hadn’t bought the whole sixer. Not a horrible beer, but not very good either. Not as good as the other Red Hooks I’ve enjoyed. Rather bland and thin. Couldn’t pick out any real hoppiness, no subtleties, no nuthin. I love IPAs, but not this one.

Quevillon (2809) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2008
Bouteille de 12oz acheté au Winooski Beverage Warehouse (Vermont), le 26/9/08. Blonde miel, petit collet. Arome d’houblon très peu amère, des notes de miel. Goût d’houblon un peu sucré, un peu d’amerturme dans la bouche, mais pas mal ennuyant. C’est buvable mais maudit que cette bière est ennuyante!

blipp (7839) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Sweet malt aroma with honey, tea, and trace hops. The flavor is also sweet caramel malt with traces of piny hops. Not bad, but a fairly poor IPA.

Butters (4020) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Extra pale amber semi-hazy pour with dishsoapy white head. Sweet and semi-piney aroma. Fair hop bitterness in the flavor, but not over the top. A bit Astringent on the finish. Medium body with fair carbonation.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2008
(bottled Aug 26 08): Pours a pale amber body, very clear. Very white head, small & diminishing. Grapefruity hoppy aroma, some maltiness. Nutty smell. Nutty taste, some hoppiness. Smooth malty taste. Almost like grapenuts. Good flavor. Nice fruitiness.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - SEP 18, 2008
Approached this one with somewhat low expectations and surprised by how nice this brew actually was. Pleasant piney citrus nose from the clear golden-orange body. Flavour carries more of the same with a bit of bittersweet caramel and singed hops. The body of this brew suffers from lack of a sturdy malty backbone and the finish is nothing grand, but it will do for now. Nothing special but not horrible. Approach with low expectations and be rewarded with an easy drink.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle. Thin bodied. Overly bitter with no malt balance. Very average brew with nothing to make it stick out.

DonMagi (5594) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2008
Cask at GBBF at the ladyboy table. Alround rating: Excellent balance, lychee, grapefruit, a solid IPA, excellent hop character and super dirnkable. Im monumentally suprized by a score this low, perhaps the bottles are pasturised?
