Bottle courtesy of the notorious ajm. Pours a dark golden shade with a frim white head. Smells of mild hops that build in character on the palate. Heavy with salt -- almost like bacon grease. Tasty and distinct.

Poured a nice amber color. There was a pleasing hop aroma. The beer was very hoppy as expected with a little bite from the bitterness that almost reveals itself as an astringency. There was a good malt/hop balance, which I like to see with IPA’s. The hops linger on forever in your mouth, which I think is just awesome. Overall, this was a nice IPA that I would try again.

Draughyt. High white creamy and lasting head. Slightly hazy golden body. Aroma of hops, nothing else. Flavor likewise simple but good hops bitterness with a heavy carbonation and a long lasting bitter aftertaste.

Had on tap at Falling Rick during GABF 08. Tasted very good and had a great hop aroma and flavor, but tasted too close to the Pliny the Elder that was also on tap that night. Expected them to be further apart in hop profile.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Cold bottle from Joey @ Southbay. A bright but not overly fruity aroma, and this continues in the very smooth flavor. While the hops are present, they aren’t at all isolated - a perfect presence here from the foamy head to the very slightly salty finish. Perfect size for a bottle, too.

smashteroid (262) - Alabama, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Served cold from bottle. Pours clear gold with a good-sized white head. Aroma is loads of pine and other floral scents, some citrus notes and a hint of sweet malts. Great hoppy taste with a lingering bitterness that slowly peters out. Light/medium bodied, very easy to drink and enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2009 OK, after 30 or so pints @ the brewpub I think I can rate this. Clear amber orange with a one finger white head, slowly fading to a thick film and sheet of lace on the glass. Aroma has loads of grapefruit pulp and rind, along with some bitter pine needles and clean caramel in the backend. The flavor is much the same with added pine needles, and a fair amount drier and more bitter than the RR IPA. As far as I know they don’t vary the hops, but this particular batch is incredibly fruity and amazing. Other batches are a bit more dank and "weed"-like. Bitterness peaks around a 6 in the dry finish. Typical of the West Coast to deprive your senses of malt character, but the purpose of IPA?s was not for the malt. Burps pine needles. Light to moderate prickly carbonation with a medium body. I must bump my rating up a bit, as this batch (4/04/09 rerate) is phenomenal. Wonderfully crafted West Coast IPA.

500ml bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head. Nose is predominantly of pine with some floral and citrus notes. Taste is similar with pine hop presence in the taste with hint of citrus and malt. Mouthfeel is medium with a good bittern finish that lasts for awhile. Very good IPA!

Pour is golden with nice frothy white head. Aromas of citrus with some pine. Flavor is well balanced and smooth with citrus, pine, and sweet malt. Very drinkable.

caesar (6479) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2008
Tap @ RR. Clear golden color, short head. Sharp piney hops, some fruit as well in aroma. Good malty body. Nice bitter palate. Great stuff.
