For our hopping regime we went with Cascade and Nuggets in the boiling addition. Centennials were added every 5 minutes for the last 30 minutes of the boil. We added Crystals into the whirlpool. Dry hopping was done in both the fermentor after primary fermentation and the bright tank. We used a mixture of Chinook, Nuggets, and Sterlings in the fermentors and whole leaf Centennials in the bright tank.

22 oz bottle: poured light orange with very little head. No ffttt when opening the bottle. I thought I was doomed. But, turns out it was carbonated. Big hop aroma. Light pine, pineapple, citrus. Flavor is sweet on first sip with a bitter hop finish. Flavor of pineapple, grass. Sweet malt. Very nice.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Talk about lacing... Big IPA tapped at the Extreme Beer Festival. Offered a pleasant hoppy, grassy, citrusy aroma. Poured a deep copper-orange with lacing that was out of this world... you couldn’t even see the glass, it was just pure foam all the way down. Awesome. Palate was a little watery but taste was well balanced malt at the front, pitching a strong, bitter hop later on with grapefruit, grass, pine.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Bottle. Pours slight coppery orange. Sweet malts and a mix of citrus and floral hop aromas, with some alcohol too. Sweet malty to begin with, but huge hops take over, with citrusy hops, and then a huge lingering bitterness. Nice balance.

Pailhead (6015) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of OldGrowth via trade. Aroma is sweet with a citrus hop balance. Almost a peachy aroma in there too. Pours a transparent orange with a small soapy looking white head. Starts off rather sweet, but that is quickly overtaken by a big citrusy hop finish. Hops really linger for some time in the aftertaste. Like the aroma, there is a touch of peach in the background. Light alcohol is barely noticeable in the finish.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2005
Bottle. Pink grapefruit color with a medium-sized white head that receded quickly and left some very pretty lacing all down the glass. Rich fruity, spicy aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is well balanced between citrus and piney hops, and caramel and bicuit malts. Very drinkable. Very nice. Perfect for a slightly chilly rainy Summer day.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Hazy pinkish-amber body under a thin white head. Apricot / orange aroma. Big strong hoppy flavor: sharp catty citrus hops over a tart yeasty malt backbone. Dry, caramely finish.

hezron (611) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Aroma of dried fruit, grapefruit hops, some vinous notes. Barlywine-ish. Cloudy orange-brown with a thin, white head. Sweet initially with some caramel malt and then all hoppy bitterness with lots of orange citrus goodness. Medium full body with a creamy-dry texture and lightly metallic finish. Thanks to DavidP for sharing.

a cloudy golden orange w/ a nice well laced white head that dissapated to quickly. Aroma is a big carmel nose w/ a light strawberry bitter hop. Palate is creamy well coated a bit acidici w/ a nice carbonation. Flavor is a nice bitter citrus like oranges w/ a light carmel malt. Good stuff.. Thanks to dave for sharing.
