I was a bit shocked at how light in color it was.... Just an absolutely fantastic beer. Top notch IPA.... Easily one of the best i’ve ever had...

I’m not sure if you can beat fresh Blind Pig. Golden orange pour, foamy white head with great lacing. Fresh hops on the nose as well as some citrus and mango, which comes through even more on the palate. Some definite floral and light herbal notes. A little pepper and pleasant bitterness. This is a desert island beer, one that would be high on the list of "If I could only have one beer for the rest of my life..." A lovely sessionable 6.1% as well. A nearly perfect beer. Bottle thanks to Ryan.

Draught. Musky pine and citrus aroma, strong fresh hops. Clear yellow with a nice thick head. Delicious hop profile with subdued bitterness. Easy-drinking and balanced with a very clean finish and no lingering bitterness.

Thanks to BOLTZ7555 for this one! Such an enjoyable beer. It’s been a while since I’ve had a good IPA. Pours a light amber with a nice bubbly white head. Aroma is nice floral hops with just a little bit of sweetness. Flavor differs from the aroma with a noticeable grassy character and solid crystal malts going on to balance it out well. NIce soapy mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this brew.

Pours a very nice murky amber, with a solid white head. Awesome aroma - Tons of grapefruit, honey sweetness and sage. The flavor is excellent as well, though it doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. More grapefruit, coupled with a nice peppery hop bitterness. The malt component stands up pretty well to the hops as well. The mouthfeel is a little bit light, but makes up for this by being refreshingly clean. Very good, but there are a few better IPAs out there.

.5L bottled on 7/22/08. Smells like floral, piny hops with some underlying sweetness. Reminds me of ST Gemini. Finishes with some grapefruit, but still with a raw hops feel. Very raw hops.

bp (811) - Queens, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Draft: pours a cloudy light orange with a big frothy white head, hoppy aroma, taste is hoppy but well balanced with a nice soft bitter finish, good but I don’t get the really high ratings for this one.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 In the bottle.
Pours hazy yellow-orange with medium head and good lacing. Beautiful hop aroma reminiscent of a Dogfish but completely different on the taste. Iíve never had an IPA that tasted so much different than it smelled. Taste is large Cascade grapefruit and flowers. Great "Northwest" flavor. Very balanced! Just a great flavor! Great beer!!

On tap at the Drafting Room. Golden, fairly clear pour; strange aroma of overripe fruit, really an odd smell that wasn’t too pleasant. I’m wondering if something wasn’t quite right with this one. Bitter early, and strong grapefruit late. Good, but certainly not 98th percentile.
