11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Bottle. Pours an opaque medium amber color with a fair off-white, rocky head. Good lacing is left behind. Aroma was initially rather citric and piney but seemingly shifted mid-glass to a more earthy tone with some funk. Medium bodied. Balanced well from the beginning with caramel malt and citric hops. Borders on cloying but doesn’t really reach it. Long, mild hop finish. Nicely done.

22oz bottle. Dark amber gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is grapefruit, fruit and sweet with a touch of wood. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity, citrus and a touch earth/wood. Nice balance. Lots of earthy and herbal characters that go along with a strong hop bitterness. Crisp finish. Nice representation of the Pacific Northwest IPA style. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter, yet there is some sweetness as well.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Sampled draught at Snipes Mountain Brewpub in Sunnywide, WA
Light hazy gold, nice head with adequate lacing. Nose of piney earthy hops, a bit harsh with bitter resins in the nose. Nice balance in the flavor though. Finishes herbally, I liked what was going on here.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2005
Amber colour. Woody, slightly grapefruity aroma. Flavour is mainly grapefruit, wood and black currant, with a light underpinning of pale malt sweetness.

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Slightly cloudy dark golden with a well retained off white head and just a touch of lacing. Aroma is straightforwardly hoppy bitter, citric. Flavor is bright, fresh hops. Tilts pretty heavily bitter with very little malt balance. I like really bitter IPAs and I havn’t had one in quite a while, so this really fit the bill.

Hab40oz (242) - Grants Pass, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Pours a light golden brown color with a thick beige head, decent lacing and moderate to high carb. Fresh hop aroma, bitter. Gloral taste to start then turning to a very fresh hoppy tang and bitterness.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2004 This brew has tons of hops throughout. A great dryhopped IPA with tons of hops without the overwhelming bitterness. Good fruity hops in the aroma and the taste with a mildly bitter end. I didn’t have all that high of expectations for this brew but was rather pleased with the outcome.

3fourths (8239) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Bottle. Orange with a large head. Lots of yeast and peaches in the nose, with some yeast floaties appearing on the surface of the hop pool. Flavor is a dull nutty orange, not too sweet... a little acidic on the tongue. Mediocre to below average IPA.

argo0 (11666) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 27, 2004
(bottle) Beige head, clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, floral. Taste is medium sweet, floral/grapefruit. Watery, light-medium body. Seems more like an APA.

Aubrey (3453) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Clear and golden with a pretty nice head. Soft carbonation and smooth bodied. Malts have some pronounced flavors ... rising bread dough, earth, sugary grains, mild nuts, and lively yeast. Hops are sharpish ... citrusy and resinous, with notes of pine needle sap and quite a bit of bitterness to finish things off. Not bad, but if I had to complain ... malts are too weak and not pronounced enough, hops are too biting and not aromatic enough, and bitterness is a little high -- relatively speaking and all things considered.
