This beer is just outstanding! I don’t think that I gave any beer a perfect score but this one deserves it!

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Tap @ Horse Brass Pub... Poured orange with a white head. Delicious hops on the nose. Floral flavors and very hoppy but yet very balanced. Sweet citrus notes that created a satisfying finish.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Clear copper with a thin off white head that leaves nice lacing. Great weed and grapefruit nose with pine, lemon, orange, spice and honey. Fruity grapefruit taste with good balance. Lots of weed notes with some grapes, apples, lemons, and spice. Wow.. a truly delicious IPA.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Sampled during Surly D-Day from 22-oz bottle. Pours a semi-clear golden amber brew with an average white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film, white ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus zest and piney hop character with a hint of golden grain malt. Taste is medium bodied, some light carbonation with flavors of citrus and grassy hops, some golden grain malt, and some light caramel. Finish has a dry bitterness with some light caramel and golden grain aftertaste.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Very light amber-yellow colored pour with a big fluffy head that evaporates rapidly. Heavy citrus aroma, mainly grapefruit and a little malt. Very dry, much more so than Pliny the Elder. Nearly as good as that beer though, another huge winner.

TwoDudes (77) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle - Bottled 9/2/08 - I was dying to try this, and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. Pours a lighter than expected gold amber color. Head is fluffy while it lasts. Aroma is grapefruit all over the place. Palate is just how I like it. Crisp, fresh with nice piney, resiny hop goodness. My first RR IPA. Up next, Pliny the Elder...

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Props to cloudskipper for sending this my way: This is one of the best IPAs I have ever had. I liked it better than Pliny for its character and drinkability. Very crisp citrus character with a pine underlay. Bitterness stings the tongue and then soothes it with a nice, round finish. A bit grassy, and malt-anemic as you’d expect from a West Coast IPA but I absolutely loved it.

TheRealBastard (145) - The-No, California, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Smooth and fresh. This beer is not as bold as the Pliny, but still very solid. Pine, citrus and hops came out of this bad boy. This beer is much more dry compared to the Pliny, drank this one right after the Pliny. Great overall beer.

xpimptastikx (103) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Pours a clear golden with minimal off with head. Smells bitter, piney, and with a hint of citrus. Tastes less bitter than the smell, but still a nice bite. Feels good in the mouth, very smooth. Leaves a nice lasting bitterness.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle. Pretty orange copper with a small white head that fades to a thin film. Light citrus and pine aroma. Grapefruit, orange, and piney hops with solid but not overwhelming bitterness. Malt maintains a presence in the background. Nicely carbonated but perhaps a touch thin. Great lingering finish. Almost delicate for a West Coast IPA. Very good stuff.
