On tap at Govnor’s Pub Brew Daze ’06. Wow. Hops. Almost too hoppy, but drinkable and full of flavor.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2006 12oz bottle. Bottle labeled Jan 11. Poured a medium and clear amber color with a small sized white head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Tastes grapefruit, pine, and a touch of carame. Tastes, like the body, a little on the thin side. Very lightly bitter.

gws57 (1274) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Had this one on draught at Brew Daze 2006. Without a doubt, one of the finest IPA’s out there. Light orangy-yellow pour with a fine head, very pronounced hoppiness, with roses and apple in the nose, and one of the most potent, overwhelming bitterness of hops. Finishes smooth and clean. Outstanding.

fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Pours to a small head; honey color. Very citrusy smell. Not much initial taste, but has a strong (but good) finish. Citrus, hops, and a lasting hoppy finish. A nice, lighter IPA.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2006
A little on the light side for an IPA, but tasty and refreshing nonetheless. It pours a pale orange body and a small head that still manages to do some fine lacework. The aroma is a light caramel malt topped with a solid pine and grapefruit hopping. The flavor, reflecting the nose, is very well balanced, the hop bitterness winning out in the lingering finish. A welcome addition to the Chicago area.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2006 Thanks for the bottle, iowaherkeye. Poured with a medium gold body and a frothy off white head. The aroma is bursting with grapefruit and some light caramel. There is a lot of cirus in the nose. The taste has some bitter bread crust with grapefruit citrus behind it. A decent and fresh tasting IPA.

Looks and smells delightful. Hoppy goodness with a bit or a sour aftertaste. Not bad, but not the best.

Full piney hop aroma, once you get out of the pine forest,there is some carmel toffee malt there, overall a very elequent hophead aroma, , a somewhat lighterorange amber color a hop prominent piney grapefruit taste slight malt backbone, smooth bitterness in aftertaste. A style conforming well made IPA,that I would have to judge highly in competition,somewhat of a session brew because of its light body,another well made midwest hop brew

12 oz bottle acquired via trade with Wallybrau. Congrats on your 1st trade John! This poured a nice light orange color with a thin white head. Subtle hop aroma with some citrus notes. Good medium bodied flavor with a some citrus and pine. Some caramel malt presence with a nice bitter aftertaste. Nice overall beer!
