Not bad for an IPA. But being a known hater of IPA’s I think it kinda does taste like yellow snow.

Bottle from South Bay Drugs: I could of sworn that I had rated this already, but apparently not. Pours with a bright glowing yellow that looks like a lava lamp when it barely heats up the wax, but this glass instead has a fat white head of foam. My nose is gratified with a scent of citrus based hops and light reminder of honey oat bread. The flavor is minor with only a slight taste of floral hops with a tiny squeeze of orange but in the distant background a breaded malt profile. Finish is dominated by bitter aftertaste.

vyvvy (3904) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Pours murky orange / copper with a large beige head. The aroma is nice and hoppy with floral, pine and tropical fruit hop traits. There is also lightly toasted malt. It’s not overly complex, but sure smells inviting. Medium crisp body with a dry bite on the finish and subdued sharp carbonation. The flavor beings with mildly harsh resiny hops that are very earthy, piny and floral along with some lightly toasted malt hiding underneath. The finish is very piny and ultra resiny. This is a very nice and delicious beer.

GranvilleTim (1467) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Light golden in color with an abundance of hop aroma. Nice white head. Nice hoppy taste with a slight bitter aftertaste. The beer grows on you as you drink.

TKA300 (105) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2009
UPDATED: APR 4, 2009 From a 22 oz. bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma of hops with a little something else that I can’t really put my finger on. Tasted fantastically bitter, but was actually very smooth. Went down with the same smoothness but left a very tasty hoppy aftertaste. Fantastic beer.

22oz. pours golden with fluffy white head. aroma is mild floral hops with an earthy edge. mouthful is very earthy and bitter. there is no citrus zest to spruce up the blunt hoppy pallet.

while this beer may have all the aspect to what makes a IPA this beer has too many flaws not to ignore, the malts and look are decent but the hop flavor is too soapy and astringent at the end. not quite to the standards.

nick76 (4180) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2009
The aroma is very hoppy with citrus, pine, soap, and caramel malt. The appearance is cloudy amber gold with a huge head. The flavor is very bitter and soapy with one of the most astringent aftertastes I have had. The palate is average for the style. Overall this is really disappointing from this brewer.

Bottle from Holiday. Dark yellow with a fluffy white head. Roasted malt and earthy hops aroma and taste with citrus and grass notes.

beerbill (3331) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a moderate, fluffy, yellow-white head that held up very well all the way to the end and left very little lace at the beginning, but much more as it reached mid-glass on down to the bottom. Pleasant aroma of malt and grapefruit. The flavor is malt up front, however, this is quickly washed over by grapefruit pith. There is just a bit of grassiness to the hops as well that is lurking in the background. Medium bitterness at the finish.
