UPDATED: OCT 8, 2008 500 ml bottle from the brewpub and drank promptly. This was the beer not on tap that I had to drink outside of my sampler later. Poured a beautiful hazed golden amber with a wonderful offwhish head that sticks around and laces well. Aromas are bitter, wonderful with citrus and piney resinous notes. Yum. Taste is similar. This beer really does deliver everything fresh it has advertised, this coming from a midwesterner who has quite a few stellar IPAs around him. Medium bodied and full of character, sweetness is balanced, however the hops definitely steal the show, lots of grapefruit and pine, no dissappointment. Canít wait till the case of RR brews I shipped home arrives. Cheers, RateBeer!

500 ml bottle thrown in as one awesome ass extra from mashmaster, thanks Tom. First off let me start by saying "Wow" this beer deserves all the hype/praise it has been getting. Pours a slightly hazedr orangey flat body with an average size fluffy white head. Aroma is hopriffic with loads of hops, citrus and pine but also has a good amount of sweetness that is reminiscent of DFH 120 Minute IPA. Medium bodied with a good solid mouthfeel, average carbonation and a bitter finish, spot on. Flavors of citrus rind, grapefruit, biscuits and dry floral notes. I am really torn on this beer. On one hand I wished I opened it with some other local RBerians so they could expierence this great IPA but then if I did that there would have been less for me. I think I made the right choice on drinking this one alone.

Bottle, thanks to BrianK for bringing this back from CA. A hazy orange yellow body with a big grapefruit piney nose and flavor. A solid ipa with a crisp hop finish. Good beer.

oakbluff (434) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 5, 2008
Sampled from bottle- pours a cloudy light orange, minimal soapy head. Nose- sweet candied fruit, light piney perfume. Taste- soapy juicy grapefruit rinds, light biscuity malts. Medium bodied hop delivery vehicle. Oily hops leave a dry finish with some orange aftertaste. Very good IPA

On tap @ Monks. Deep golden in color with a nice fluffy white head. Grassy, earthy piney hop aroma. Orange and grapefruit notes. Hoppy and malty flavor. Citrusy piney and peppery notes. Nice bitter finish. Full bodied. Well balanced. Refreshing.

scoth (641) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear light golden with a thin white head, good lacing. Bountiful hop odor, pine, hay, and a little musky, I just want to keep smelling it. Body is a little thicker than I was expecting, very nice, not at all syrupy. Little bit of caramel candy malt, strong pine flavor, bitter, long aftertaste.

This was a treat that Ross let me split with him. This beer pours out a ruddy brown with little to no head. Smell is just a nasal overload of hops. Grass, pine, and a touch of citrus, great aroma on this one. Taste is brutal hops, just downright brutal. Skip the sweetness, skip the typical west coast grapefruit taste, this one is just downright bitter and resiny. This is a different animal than Pliny and I like it!

Tried to obey the bottle and drink as fresh as possible. Very strong aroma of pine resin and juniper. Flavour is like you mixed mandarine oranges with pine needles...plenty of citrus and plenty of bitterness. Very unique IPA and I like it.
