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.

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.

On tap at the Monkís Cafe. Clear orange with a lacy white head. Nose is floral hops, sage and honey. Medium light with mild carb, increasing resin. Taste is grapefruit pith, orange, some toffee and herbal hops. Good, hoppy IPA.

17 oz bottle via Liquid SOl. Pours a clear amber with a massive beige head. The nose is nice and i note some pine and some orange. Taste is pure hoppiness with some orange, grapefruit and pine as well as a little earthiness. The pine/grapefruit carries though and lingers well into the aftertaste for a long long time. Nice. The body is medium, carbonation is perfect.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2009 500mL Bottle. Thanks Andy! Flickr(http://www.flickr.com/photos/26049401@N Gross. Stinky wet dog and dying cheese aroma, back in there somewhere is a run of grass, but it just comes out smelling a bit like peanut butter, ass and bananas to me. Pours a slightly hazed golden amber, with a beautiful head of lacing white foam. Continuing wet animal and bitterness. This tastes JUST like the disgusting hop bomb that I made a little over a month ago. Wet dog, salty popcorn butter, and compost. In the flavor, hops are able to climb through a little more, but only as a piney bitterness. The hop cheese smoothes out a little, but still perks up in the finish. Hops are fine, I guess, but I really donít have any interest in considering them amongst the weird stale hop disaster. Without much hop flavor, this seems needlessly bitter, considering that the malt isnít really keeping up with the unbalanced bitterness.

In a re-calibration of my palate, Iím coming to learn that cheesy, stale, high co-humulone iso-valeric hops create a sensation for me that I had been miscorrectly identifying as diacetyl, which I still cannot, apparently taste. This beer has some funky stale cheese hops going on and I mis-interpreted that. Much less of a brewing flaw than the incorrectly identified diacetyl problem. Re-scored.
