Bottle thanks to hophead22, thanks again man. Poured a hazy golden color with nice fluffy white head. Aroma is nice cirtus floral scent along with hops. Flavor had a delicious hop taste to it along with citrus and ended smooth with a nice bitterness. A very enjoyable IPA.

Very similiar to the RR IPA, but seemed a little more tame in most areas. About the same drink.

piscator34 (2022) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 24, 2008
Bottled sample via (and shared with) oakbluff. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Loads of hops upfront in the nose, with floral, white grapefuit, and white pepper notes, along with some mild pale malt notes in the background. The hops are, once again, front and centre in the mouth. White grapefuit, flowers, a bit of earth dominate, with a bit more malt coming through mid-sip before a final kick of sweet orange. Solid bitterness. A very good IPA.

Pours gold, with a white head. Aroma is strong grapefruity hops, and caramel. Flavor is hops, citrus, caramel, and malt. A very good IPA.

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.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2008
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.
